Just wanted to drop you a quick note to keep you updated on what's going on with me since the last time i wrote. Okay, so here it book release party/birthday celebration was on March 14th and it was a success! There was almost 500 people there to show their support and party with yours truly and it was definitely a night to remember! The event was decorated so nice and it almost looked like i was gettin married but i'm not even close to (the right man has to come along first before that happens) and i wore two dresses, a royal blue one and a black one. I'll post pics later...the event in a nutshell was fabulous and i even had a chanel purse cake that was red velvet!

Okay so with that over and behind me, I'm still keeping it moving...i've been working real hard at marketing and promoting myself and it's a full time job if i say so myself...I'm trying to do everything I can to make sure I'm seen and people know to go out and by my book. I've been doing pretty good so far but the book has only been out a month so i still have work to do...I think the biggest thing so far is getting these bookstores to call me back and Im persistent so after a while they're gonna get tired of me so they'll have no choice but to book me for a signing. lol...i know im crazy, but would you still love me if i was boring...

Well today im on my way to Nashville and i'm so excited. Im going for music but you know i always find a way to sell books so, every opportunity is a chance to hustle a book or two or

I will write back once we arrive in Cashville....

Love ya lots,

It's finally here!

Dear Diary,
I wanted to write and let you know about everything thats been going on since the last time I wrote. So many things have been happening so fast it feels as if I'm caught up in a whirlwind but its definitely a good thing. My book is finally here...I'm holding my actual book in my hands and it feels so good to actually see the finished product in my hands. I'm extremely blessed to have accomplished such a great thing and it feels so good that its surreal. Well i gotta go but i'll write soon, getting some thing together for my all black party this weekend.

I've changed my name :)

Dear Diary,
Today i decided to change the name of this blog. When I originally created this blog it was started to allow people to get a sneek peek of what it's like to be an unpublished author and I wanted people to share in my journey. I initially thought that it was going to take quite some time for me to be published but God has such a way of doing things and I was picked up so fast that I didnt really have a chance to slow down until now. So today as I turned in my novel so that it can finished being put together :), I realized something. I realized that my blog name doesn't fit me anymore. I've decided to change the name from, "Diary of an Aspiring Author" to "Diary of a Debut Author" because I'm actually living an author's life. Even though my book hasnt been released just yet I'm on my way to acheiving more of my dreams. I'm just in the beginning of this journey but I'm hopeful and excited because I know it will be an interesting ride. I just would like to encourage you to continue going after your dreams because after a while your very dream will show up right on your door step for you. Continue to press through to reach your dreams no matter what. Push through the adversity in your life and reach your goals because they will come true if you just believe and never give up.

Until next time,
Jessica A. Robinson, Author :)
