Sooner rather than later

As I reflect upon the last year I must say it flew by like a whirlwind. It has taken me from the brink of insanity to the rest gracefully upon the final pre-publishing steps. The last read through, the last spit and polish. 


I have breathed my very soul into this book and can only hope that it bears fruit.


I cannot say that I haven't done my best to deliver a book worthy of reading. I know that I have done that. Will you love it? I'm not sure. 


To give you a bit more history about Armed and Outrageous it began two years ago. It was something I had jotted down on a break while writing another book. I have always known it was a very novel idea. Trying to come up with unique and fresh idea is not an easy task, but I accomplished it with this book. It wasn't until last year that I had the time to sit down and finish the book, but it was a magical experience for me.


Two editors, a proofreader, and more careful inspection by yours truly, and I have now turned this book from good to great. I can't thank everyone that helped me enough! As I sit and write this near tears: I want to thank everyone for not giving up on me.

Congrats on your writing accomplishment, Madison. May the ink in your virtual and real book signing pen, never run dry.

Madison, I, for one, have cheered you on across the miles as I've watched you moving closer, step by step. No one who knows you, even if it's only through an acquaintance across the internet, can say that you haven't poured everything you've got into making sure your book is spit-polished and ready to go :) I wish you much success now and in the future! Hugs, Candice
