I believe I’m living in a strange time warp. No, I haven’t watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show one too many times! I’m talking about the fact that TRINITY is going to be 1-year-old in a couple of weeks. ONLY 1! It has only been a year since I published my first book, and I look back and get so dizzy I could fall off my chair.
Since the publication of TRINITY, I have published a short, GHOST OF A CHANCE, and a second book, RELIC, for Decadent Publishing. I’ve also self-published two other short story/novellas. I’ve written countless blog posts and answered a zillion interview questions. I’ve concocted crazy, zany, fun, challenging, and sometimes major flop contests. It’s all good, though. It’s a process.
My time is so warped because I feel as though I’ve been at this publishing game for years now. At best, it’s been three years from the inception or notion of writing a novel at all. How crazy is that?! Plenty crazy. Especially when I get impatient and wonder about my sales, my visibility, and my work. My head is playing games with me. I’m a debut author for heaven’s sake and my brain is expecting the results of one who’s been at it for years. Silly girl!
But maybe not so silly. I won’t settle for less than the stars, and I’m doing my damnedest to make sure I put out awesome books for you all to read, creating characters for you to fall in love with and smartly woven plotlines for you to unravel.
So, I head into TRINITY’s first birthday with a few notes to myself. Keep aiming for the stars. Keep your fans happy. Understand that nothing will ever be as it was, and that’s the way you like it. Remember to congratulate yourself. You’ve come a long way, baby!
