In this the first year anniversary of my adventure in independent publishing, I am swimming in gratefulness:for the readers who have read my books–especially those who have provided reviews and ratings of same; for the readers who call themselves fans and who have told me they eagerly await each new title (have they seen the newest in the ON GENEVA SHORES series, entitled Choices, now available on Amazon.com and also on Kobobooks.com?); for my friends and acquaintances, who have been unstintingly encouraging as I explore what it’s like to be a writer; and, for those individuals I consider my consultants, whose expertise has provided me with sufficient information to avoid major errors when including certain technical elements in my stories.
This is the month I have also made a first contribution to the American Cancer Society as a result of the sales of the two books that include characters who battled cancer. While the check is not huge, I was happy to send it on, knowing in that small way, I’ll be contributing to the research to find cures and perhaps even preventive measures against these diseases.
It has been a rough-and-tumble year, one in which I’ve learned lots and am eager to learn more, even as I continue working toward my goal of ten books published by the end of 2013.
Foremost in that quest is putting each title out in paperback in addition to their ebook configurations.
What else can I say? “Thank you” seems inadequate, even as I say it loudly. Thank you, anyway.
