Thank Yous from KK

I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to David Gaughran, an indie author and fount of knowledge for self publishing. Go follow him everywhere on social media, buy his amazing book Let’s Get Digital. That book changed my life for the better. I listened to it on repeat in the car for weeks.  Thank you, Audible.  Thank you, David.

On to the next.

I want to thank Martha Olsen, my life coach who told me that it was fear keeping me from publishing. So here we are, vanquishing fear, publishing, and ready to succeed. If you are in the Fargo, ND or Moorhead, MN area, check her out on her website.

Last, but definitely not least, a big thank you to Lyda Morehouse, an author I met at the Minnesota Writing Workshop.  Mom and I had fun at the workshop, but pretty much were on cloud nine after I had a one-on-one with Lyda, and she told me  she loved my book, and I should get it published.  In her words:

“I’m completely and 100% sold.”

I couldn’t believe it, still am pinching myself.  Thanks, Lyda.

Check out Lyda’s books here on Amazon, and check out her website.

Katie lives in Moorhead, MN with her husband, one cat and best dog, Howard. Her cat, after four years, has still not forgiven her for getting a dog, but such is a cat’s life. Dogs are crosses they must bear. Katie grew up on a dairy farm in rural Minnesota where the wheat and barley fields rolled in the summer wind like ocean waves, and where the snow storms wailed like banshees in the winter. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing, with a Minor in History from Minnesota State University of Moorhead, then she quickly learned how to answer a phone politely and how to document process so she could eat. She loves watching Netflix, knitting, crocheting, spinning, felting slippers, and wishes she had sheep…or Angora rabbits. Just one Angora rabbit. She would name that rabbit Sir Floofer Flops the III, because surely, he would come from a very old dignified family. Katie enjoys listening to Audible and teaching herself new languages. In the summer, she attempts to, and would like to believe she succeeds at, keeping all the plants in her garden alive, possibly with the help of foreign swear words — what the neighbors can’t understand, won’t hurt them.
