Celebrating A Year

1 Year

On the seventeenth of November it will have been a year since my first four stories went up on Amazon. It’s been a rather busy and, at times, an extremely hectic year. I’ve loved every minute of it. Well, except for the really hot days when it felt like my brain was melting into a puddle. I could have done without those days. All the rest though, I loved.

In the past year I’ve published eight novels, one novella and four short stories. Which comes to a total of 565,267 words. It wouldn’t have been possible without my editors, beta readers, readers and of course my family.

Everyone was invaluable. I’m looking forward to another busy year and putting more books up on Amazon, including making some of my books available in print. There are so many ideas just begging to be written. Ideas that wake me in the middle of the night, or should I say two or three in the morning since I regularly don’t get to bed until at least midnight. Characters that come to me fully formed, demanding I write their stories. Other characters who slowly reveal themselves as the story progresses. Snippets of scenes that have me wondering what will happen next and some characters who won’t go away no matter how many stories I write for them.

I can’t wait to find out what exciting adventures my second year of publishing will bring. I’m hoping they’ll be as good, or even better than, my first year.
