It’s a good feeling seeing those numbers rise–whether it be fellow authors I’ve connected with, sales, or blog comments that represent all the conversations I’ve had with passionate readers, writers, and dreamers. So I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who supports so many people on this journey of writing and publishing. I am very grateful to have every single one of you cheering me on! And I wanted to share a special moment with everyone:
The photo below was taken on July 31, 2007–the day I received the first copy of November Snow in the mail. I’d just turned 16, but I moved shortly afterward, and I lost the photo…or so I thought. A few days ago, I found it on an old computer’s files. It means a lot to me, because the moment was my first novel’s release, and I’m glad I have it again. I’m sharing it, because it’s another one of those instances where we, as writers, can find inspiration from our pasts.
But I also have three other wonderful things to share today:
“Benevolent magical creatures of the Dark called shades live clandestinely among humans as nimble shape-shifters while readying for a pivotal battle against the evil beings of Light.”
Read the rest here. I can promise the reviewer, Lionel Green, has a way with words, and I’m flattered by his in-depth review and analysis of the piece.
And if you want even more information, I’d recommend two delightful interviews I was able to participate in:
Although I’m interviewed about my novels, Baer also adds some fun questions about what I like outside my writing world. Oceans or Mountains? Favorite T.V. show? Happy or sad ending to a novel?
Find out what I said here.
And this interview focuses on the writing and publishing industry:
Joanne asks: What was the hardest part for you in the writing process; the outline, synopsis, query or building the story itself? What do you do to promote yourself and your novels? Do you also write in other genres?
Find out what I said here.
I have to thank everyone who follows me, but I also want to emphasize how much I appreciate those who have interviewed me and/or reviewed my novels. I’m always excited to participate, and I look forward to discussing these topics with more and more readers and writers. It’s a wonderful and fun opportunity to connect further, but I can’t do it alone, so thank you for allowing me to do so through your support 😀
Speaking of which, I’m still giving away free copies of Minutes Before Sunset for review in order to celebrate Goodreads Book of the Month for July! If you’re interested in that (or interviews–or anything really!) email me at email@example.com.
I am also thinking about doing more guest blog posts in the future, so look out for that!
Changes are coming, but I’m excited about them!
Have a great weekend,
