I HAVE ISSUES....

 
And if you really know me, I am talking about more than just the usual baggage ones! I have actual bound copies of HOLIDAY in my warehouse and thousands were dropped at the mailing fulfillment company to meet you in your mailbox later this week.
 
I am proud to say I had a hand in every part of this publication... including unloading the issues from the truck: 
1. Here I am with the final box to be distributed to readers around the world. 2. The
truck arrived with simple and clean white boxes containing magazines. These are the copies that will go far and wide around the world and also case-lots to shops and readers who want to give them as gifts. .
3. The print company called it a catalog but its really a cross between a book and a magazine... such beautiful paper!
4. Here we peer into a case and you can see the back cover with our sponsor COMPANY C - another locally owned design company in my town with a colorful global appeal.
 

It is definitely another step in fulfilling my dream, but it won't be complete until Holiday is in the hands of readers and I hear your voices. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable and challenging journey - one that has had lots of lessons and growth involved. I'm not sure if I can thoroughly explain it, though I hope to have a continuing dialogue with all the readers as we plan and plod our future in self-publishing.
 
Not long now!!

  25. It has been amazing to witness the steps you've taken to realize this dream...

    As a teacher, a student's delight in learning something new is the best reward I can receive from a lesson that took a lot of preparation.

    There will be a showering of delightful comments here in a few days ~ I'm looking forward to being a part of it all!
    Blessings always,
    Maria
