Real Success

You have reached the highest achievement if you have lived well, laughed often, and loved much. Real success is about fully enjoying every moment ~ Ed and Deb Shapiro

What a roller coaster ride!  Really I've been on it since this time last year.  After four years of writing, I finished A Place to Call Their Own.  After a editing, I started submitting it to publishers and agents.  In February I was offered and signed a contract with Musa Publishing.

I just finished a weekend of edits in preparation for a July 5th release date and another polishing round last night.  Although the "down to wire" can be exhilarating and I wrote on Sunday that most of the time I can work under pressure, it can be a bit stressful as well!  I prefer to leave myself a little bit more room for deadlines.

But I wouldn't change anything for the world.  In less than two weeks, my first novel will be published.  Along the way I've lived, laughed, and loved. 

How do you define real success?
