Going for Broke
I told Karly that the boxes were full of Mommy's new book, and she helped me open the first one. But as I pulled out a crisp new copy, she ran to the kitchen in search of something more exciting (i.e. a cheese stick).
So I was left alone to celebrate, welcoming the quiet as I swept my hand over the cover and then cracked it open to read the first lines that I'd already read dozens of times.
After almost two years of writing, editing, and rewriting, Going for Broke is officially done! It's surreal to have the finished book in my hands, and I thank God for the blessing of being able to share another story.
