Tom T's Hat Rack ~ Published!

 January 3, 2013 ~ It's official.... "Tom T's Hat Rack" has been published and I am a real author! (Who would have ever dreamed) As of yesterday I approved the final piece to the puzzle which was approving the e-readers content. You just don't know how happy I am to have finally completed this project! Such an exciting day for me both personally and professionally!

Personally I have wanted to write and publish a children's book of some sort but I just didn't know what I would write about. In 2012 I had a great opportunity to write about someone special to me and how I try to live my life by "Paying It Forward". You don't know how good it felt to get the final copy, a true copy of my book in the mail on December 31, 2012. (I was lucky to have great parents that instilled values in me... Thanks Mom and Dad!)

Professionally I have spread my wings and yet added one more thing to my accomplishments. Funny how about 7-8 years ago I was told by a boss that (basically in a nutshell) I needed to have more than a high school diploma to be successful. Um, not something you tell Michele Spry! I have worked really hard to get to where I am today and I will continue to work hard while doing so from the heart. I have such passion and drive for so many things in this world that I am not going to let one person hold me back! I love the idea that I will have a whole new network of people to interact with and introduce my friends to! 

As of this morning when I looked on Barnes & Noble's website and typed in "Tom T's Hat Rack" I found it was available for Nook!

Then I looked on Amazon's website and typed in "Tom T's Hat Rack" and found it was available for Kindle!

I am patiently waiting for the actual book (hardback and paperback) to be posted to both of these websites as well as Google's iBooks! I am working on getting the physical books in stores but there is a process to get this done. Once I get books in my hand I can send the appropriate information to them and hopefully have an answer within 6-8 weeks!

It's a very exciting journey and I am glad you are right there beside me! I am a happy girl!


  1. Michelle this is so awesome! I'm so proud of you! Congratulations - it couldn't of happened to a better person. Yay! Remember the small town people like me when your famous and traveling around the world signing autographs. Ha! :)

  2. And this is why I don't write books... your name is spelled Michele, not Michelle. :) But I also fall on the street in the middle of the day for no apparent reason too. :)

  3. Thank you so much Becky! I have had some great people in my life (including you) that have inspired me. No worries about me becoming famous... I'm just simple little ol' Michele Spry who loves my friends that randomly fall to the ground.... still laugh about that one! One minute you are walking around talking and the next you are doing random concrete checks! Love ya girl!
