|The day I got my author copies in the mail|
Easiest Thing: Writing the book.
Scariest Thing: To me, the scariest thing about writing a book is waiting to hear what others think of it. I figured the people who knew me or my dad would enjoy it, but I wasn't so sure about people who didn't know us personally. I just want to say thanks to all the readers who posted good reviews on Amazon for "My Funny Dad, Harry."
Hardest Thing: Marketing the book--making sales. I thought my book would be a best seller just because it is so easy to relate to and my dad is so likeable. Wrong! I soon realized that generally it takes a reputation as an established author to get an agent and get the promotion necessary for it to see that much popularity.
Most Satisfying Thing: The fact that I actually wrote a book in my dad's memory and got it published. It was therapeutic for me to write my memories and share my dad with the world. I think people could learn a thing or two from him.
Most Fun Thing: It always gives me a lift to read a new review and discover that someone else actually liked my book. Hearing about the parts different ones especially found funny, touching, or interesting makes me feel good that I wrote it. If you read it and like it, please take a little time and post a review on Amazon or Barnes and Noble to let me know.
