A year ago today, Risking Ruin was let out into the world.
I had no clue what to expect.My hopes were simple -- That someone would enjoy the story I'd written. That one book blogger would think it warranted three stars. That I didn't get hate mail. That maybe a few people would buy it.
I'm simply amazed. Though it's never topped a list on Amazon and isn't a worldwide sensation, I've
- sold hundreds of copies
- gotten some amazing feedback (4.4 avg review on Amazon)
- met some amazing bloggers, readers, and fellow authors
- made an appearance at #59 on Amazon's erotic mystery Top 100.
I'm so thankful for all of the support. From strangers, friends, and the virtual friends I've made through this process. Your support gave me the courage to keep writing. Thank you.
I sit here today with not just one published book to my name, but two, and a manuscript for my third.
Yes, I still have my day job.
No, I haven't broken even.
Yes, I am incredibly thankful.
On my Facebook page, I'm giving away not only a signed paperback copy of Risking Ruin, but two e-copies of Risking Ruin and a $5 Amazon gift card and hope you'll spend it exploring a few amazing indie authors who have supported me through this journey through their generous offering of ideas and critiques.
