An Author

Last week a friend told me about a service that coverts blogs into books.

http://blog2print.sharedbook.com

Using this service you upload your blog and can chose from a number of different formats, with everything from a scrapbook style to more of a traditional book.  With my blog being more word-heavy and being 4 years old I naturally chose the latter.

IT IS AWESOME!  2 volumes, 751 pages with black and white photos (I also got a color pdf copy with links included).

Even though it is just for me it feels so satisfying to hold volumes in my hands that I wrote.  That have my thoughts and ideas inside. It really does make me feel like an author.  It is exciting!

I remember a writer told me once to bind your first book whether it is published or not, and I can see why.  Its extremely satisfying to see your hard work in paper form, not just electronic.

Its just neat to see the proof of my life over the last 4 years! It makes me want to keep writing.

The front and back cover. Don't they look great!
