Last week, my tenth book came out.
I’m a little blown away by this, just so you know.
Why, you ask? Well, there was a time, not too long ago, that I was ready to throw in the towel. I’d been writing for over ten years. I’d gotten close to publishing more than once, but then a book I loved failed to sell. Then it happened. And it’s been a wild ride ever since.
I don’t know that I’ll ever get over the thrill of release day. Books 9 and 10 came out within
days of each other and I was excited when both of them went live for readers. And when I thought about it, that’s what mattered most. My readers.
My readers are a blessing, and I’m thrilled to say many have become friends. And with each book my community grows. If I’d quit I wouldn’t have all these great people in my life and that just wouldn’t be acceptable. Not at all.
So today I give thanks for everyone in my orbit. Life has a way of knocking us down, but all of you pull me up. You fill my days with laughter, wonder, and breathtaking moments.
