And here I am. And there you are.
You’ve been with me all the way through my journey over the past year. Exactly one year ago today, I published my debut fantasy novel, The First. Amid a scurry of activity and anxiety, I managed to write, edit, and publish a novel that has been sold and read in many countries around the world. One year later, and I still feel that anxiety on a daily basis. Can I make this work? Can I become the published author that I want to be?
The answer is still out there. I’ve learned so much over the last year and a half. I’ve taken on the roles of author, co-editor, co-designer, webmaster, PR Rep, marketing manager, publisher, not to mention all of the other little things that go along with creating a novel. The things I have learned have enriched my life because I love learning new things. I feel empowered when I know I can create things that were unknown to me beforehand. My creative side gets a jump start every time I learn something new.
To all those who have read and reviewed my book, I thank you from the bottom pf my heart. To those of you who continue to read and follow my blog and/or newsletter, my gratitude is undying. This road has been a rocky one, filled with highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Have I let the rotten stuff get to me? Of course I have. This is me we are talking about. I’m still working on developing that thick skin needed for this job.
There is so much more to come. That much I can promise. The First in audiobook format is on its way, just shy of the one-year anniversary for the book. Please share this post with your friends and family. If you haven’t subscribed to my blog yet, the signup is on this page. It’s fast and simple. You can also subscribe to my newsletter (sent out once a month or so) for updates about me, my book, and my work-in-progress.
Once again, thank you for your continued support. Exciting things are on the horizon!

I just want to say a genuine “thank you” to the owners of Foxtale Book Shoppe and the organizers of the September Emerging Author Book Signing and Discussion that took place on September 5th in Woodstock, Georgia. Here are some pictures from the event:

This Friday, September 5, Foxtale Book Shoppe will be hosting the September Emerging Author Signing and Discussion event as part of Woodstock’s Friday Night Live series. Local merchants in the Main Street area participate in the gathering, and the bookstore will be one of those merchants.
And I will be one of those authors.
I’ll have a few moments to talk about the book, followed by a book signing for any copies sold during the event.
