One Year Ago…

On March 28, 2014, I obtained the first copies and the first order of That’s All I Got! from my publisher. With life bustling around me, I almost forgot the one year anniversary of becoming a published author. A definite milestone in the publishing world. I’m two copies away from personally selling 100 books (I have a home inventory that’s yearning to dwindle).

In the past year, I’ve traveled locally for many book events and one event out-of-state near my college alma mater, Ferris State University. It’s been quiet for a while now, but since spring has arrived, new life and energy grows branches leading me to new possibilities.

That’s All I Got
Thrival: A Widow’s Journey After Suicide
by Karen E Voss

After many hours, weeks, and months of writing, editing, and revising, the day has arrived where I can hold the finished book in my hands. I received the first copy gift wrapped, it’s a present after all, a dream that has come true.

First Copy


The day has arrived for my books to arrive! Earlier today I received an email saying that they have arrived. I knew it would be today at some point, but I didn’t know what time of day. While I’m unable to actually touch them until Friday morning at 9am due to scheduling, I’m psyched!

When I read the email, my eyes began to water before a few tears shed. The tears represented happiness, accomplishment, and achieving a dream. I am an author!
