Violets Are Blue has been written, titled, edited, and sent off to a book editor. And as of now, it has been completely edited a second time. This has been my dream for as long as I can remember. Whether Violets Are Blue is eventually published and is a hit or stays a document on my laptop forever, I will never forget how happy I feel at this moment. 

I feel like dancing a jig.

This is my third draft of this book, and I love it dearly. The characters, the story, everything about it is close to my heart. The Bradshaws feel like my family.
As promised in this post, I shall now include all the details: 

Pages (including title page, book hook, prologue, and epilogue): 205, .14 font, 1.5 spacing
Words: 52,645
Characters (no spaces): 228,005
Characters (with spaces): 280,837
Paragraphs: 2,291
Lines: 5,006

I already have an event going — Unsinkable — that deals with my book and the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic. There are monthly giveaways, guest posts, VAB updates, and so much more. Click here for more details about that. 

As soon as I publish this post, I plan on jumping up and down and perhaps letting out a girlish "eep!" or three of excitement. Is that a bit strange? :)
