I’ve had over 3,300 customers download my novels for Kindle so far this year. That’s roughly 3,299 more than I was expecting and that’s because I had to buy a copy to test it out.
I had a lot of fun writing Daylight Hours and Moonlit Miles and even though I’m taking a break from Kris Grant for a while to write some other stories, it was a nice surprise to look at my monthly reports and tally up how many I’ve managed to sell so far from Kindle.
Of course, no matter how grateful I am to everyone/anyone who even takes the time to read the synopsis of either book — let alone the entire thing — what really makes me feel like I should hold off on planning that assisted suicide is reviews.
So I implore you all: Any one of the 3,000 people out there who have downloaded my books and read them, please review them on Amazon.com and let me and the rest of the world know what you think. Hate it or love it, I can only grow as an author with feedback from my audience. (Oh, and the other 299 of you out there, I didn’t forget about you, I’m just pretty sure you’re my mom, so I’m not even gonna bother asking you to review anything)
I thank everyone in advance who helps me out with reviewing the books if you’ve read them.
Side note: I’m in the business of working on an exciting new novel that has nothing to do with vampires and everything to do with amazing. I’ll keep you informed.
I’ve finished the 2nd draft of the sequel to Daylight Hours!
This is where all of the grueling editing, proofreading, editing, and more proofreading comes in.
Last year I self-published Daylight Hours and now it’s time to build the paperback and ebook editions of the second book in the series. My writing style has come a long way in the past year and it was a lot of fun writing a sequel. Kris Grant is a character I enjoy writing as and for a writer, that’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. It’s always a good thing when your work doesn’t feel like work.
I don’t want to give too much information on the second book just yet, because the second draft is far from what the finished book will look like. I will say this though. If you read the first book and enjoyed Kris Grant’s sarcasm and whit, then you’re going to appreciate the second book. I’m self-publishing the Kris Grant novels. This may be the only time in my life when I have complete creative control without an editor or a publisher stifling my writings and editing me to appeal to the masses. I wrote the second book knowing that I wasn’t going to hold anything back and it brings positive elements to the novel and gives me a freedom that I think shows through the writing.
Self-publishing a novel is one of the most stressful, demanding, time-consuming, exhausting work that I’ve ever done and I love every frustrating minute of it.
Kris Grant will be returning in a whole new novel Summer 2012.
