I'm Published!!

I've had my writing published before - as a kid I won a couple of writing contests, and my poem or short story was printed in the local paper. I'm currently on staff with a local magazine writing articles for their "Faithful Families" section. It's a quarterly magazine, and I've been writing for them for about a year, so I've done about four articles. I'm currently working on one for the spring edition, which comes out in March. Really gotta finish that today.....

BUT....I have never published a book. Until now.

My dearest, bestest friend ever (guess who it is?) took all of our Amazing Race blog posts - her pictures and my writing - and had the whole saga published in a book! A REAL book! Check it out:






Is that cool or what?!? AND? It's not just a book for me. Oh no. ANYONE can buy a copy of our book! I'm thinking by summer it's going to be on the New York Times Best Seller List. Better hurry and get your copy today!

I was so worried about the quality. Turns out I worried needlessly. I think it looks pretty dang good.

P.S. I only knew about TWO of your four articles!!!

I think that is so cool of Dana to do. You should so send it to the producers of the show. Do they have a blog for the show? Talk about it!!
