Last Thursday was a big day because that was the day I handed over my book manuscript to the publisher!

Last week was intense. Monday I worked on it 17 hours. Tuesday 14 hours, and Wednesday, another 17 hours. On Wednesday I didn’t go to sleep until 5:30 am, and then I woke up at 7:30 am to get right back to work. Even though I’ve been working on the book for the past year there were just all these little things that I wanted to tweak to make it just right. 65,000 words of Spending Fast goodness were handed over at 4:30pm EST. I was so wound up from adrenaline that I was buzzing around the rest of the day. Then, I crashed on Friday, and spent the next couple of days recovering! :)

Now, all sorts of things will take place leading up to the book’s publication which will be in January 2016. Another few rounds of edits will take place. The cover will get designed, the illustrations will be put into place (you’ll LOVE them, btw!), and the layout with be laid (?… lol).

It’s all so exciting! Thanks for being a part of the process, and for letting me share this big accomplishment with you! xo, Anna

    I can’t wait to read it! I am planning in reading it while I celebrate being debt free!

    After some backsliding in December 2014 (I should have followed my gut, not the crowd!) I’m back on track.

    I can’t wait!

    Congrats! I’ve been following your blog for a couple of years but didn’t realize you were writing a book until now.

    This is a great way to reach a different market too – I think everyone will benefit from hearing your story. Please continue to post updates!
