Dreams into Reality

The manuscript is in and the proof copy is ordered! It feels surreal right now. I always pictured myself getting to this moment, but to actually get here is incredible. To reach something that you always dreamed of and always had a passion for is an “out-of-this-world-experience.” I must say that I am very proud of myself and I know that my family and friends are too.

I would be lying though if I said that I wasn’t nervous. My dream isn’t just publishing a book, it’s publishing a book that is well-known—that is successful. I want the world to know my name, to know my story. And this goal requires time and a lot of patience on my part.

My objective with this book—my objective in life—is to inspire. I feel like this is the reason why I am here. This is the reason why God has given me this talent—to inspire people through my writing.

Naturally, the doubt and the “what if’s” are beginning to creep in. There are times when I ask myself, what if this book doesn’t do well? What if it doesn’t sell? What if the state of Michigan doesn’t know your name, let alone the world? I hate when I get like that, but in the words of Mr. J. Cole “that’s human nature I suppose.” The second guessing comes naturally.

But my faith over conquers all. I know that this is what God has in store for me. I know that he hasn’t led me this far to fail. So I cast the doubts and the “what if’s” aside and I move on with the “I know’s.” I know that this book will do well. I know that this book will sell. I know that one day; the world will know my name. I know this because God told me so ;).

So the release date will be in October (won’t be able to have the orders in by September 29th), sometime after the 11th.

Get prepared, get ready. Into My Mind will be here very soon.

Wish me well.

    Congratulation! I knew you would do it. I look forward to purchasing my copy (hopefully you will sign it) and going to see the movie one day in the near future.

    Hey, I wonder if the movie will be as good as the book…:)

    Luv ya and thanks for sharing apart of yourself with us.
