I GOT MY BOOK *squeals* || ft. a video of me opening the package

Sunday, January 15, 2017












oohhhkaaayy. so, yeah. that video was kinda awkward - please ignore me I just couldn't stop staring at my book IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL THO *hugs it*

// when the book came: 

julia: "THE MAIL IS HERE"

me: *somehow calmly goes down the stairs* *excitedly grabs package* "ohmygoodness the package is so thick!! JULIA ARE YOU COMING OR WHAT" *goes upstairs to film video* *cant stop squealing*




legit tho guys i adore the size like if you are a writer YOU HAVE TO PRINT YOUR BOOK OUT OKAY YEP it's so amazing it's like, i wrote this like what even

me flipping thru book: *glances down at page* uhhh. *notices I somehow managed to misspell 'temporarily' TWICE, two different ways, in the same sentence* #iwaswordsprintingokay don't worry, yes, I can spell. word sprints be like:


I got the book, grabbed sticky notes and flipped through my book adding notes basically saying, "THIS IS HORRIBLE FORGIVE ME" and "yes this person still doesn't have a name ignore the '-----'" many random notes yep i also gave the rule of no bending the cover back BC I'D JUST DIE you don't do that to books - also, no folding pages corners like *dies at thought*

...and then I did it.

I handed my precious, unedited novel over to julia. like waht.


I KNOW, I KNOW IT'S NUTS BUT YEAH - she said it might take her a week to read it *cough cough* but it is a 432 pg novel soooo. *sighs and waits*

BUT LEGIT I LOVE MY BOOK SO MUCH OKAY credit to my awesome older sis, Bree, for designing this epic cover for me *the image for my cover is from the internet and i am using it for personal use only so...credit to whoevers image it is out there*

ISN'T IT GORGEOUS?

I printed out a novella I wrote through Lulu, and the spacing was AWFUL lol There was way too much space between...everything. Did you double space or single space your book? I LOVE IT SO MUCH THOUGH <3

  15. OH MY GOODNESS, SARE. Your book is EPICNESS, I'm SO INSANELY excited about it! I kinda want to virtually snatch it so I can pet it and take pics of it on my bookshelf - but somehow I don't think you'd take too kindly to that xD.

    And OH MY WORD you did actually record yourself opening the package - LOVE that video! It was SO COOL getting to see Oblivion in print for. I WANT IT SO BAD.

    Ahem. Anyways. Yes I would/will print out my novel and YES OBLIVION IS GORGEOUS xD.

  23. Oh wow, I'm pretty sure I would never have the courage to let *anyone* see my first draft, much less print it out. O.o I'm kind of a perfectionist that way, though. It looks really pretty, congratulations!

    1. lol - I'm just letting some close friends (and obv my sis) read it - so it's cool. There is some critiquing, but also it can be encouraging - I'd totally recommend it for some close friends or family. But after you edit, "strangers" can be more honest like you need ;) ahh - well, I'm a perfectionist with some things too :P aww, thanks, girl!! <3
