That time again for Words on Wednesday; an author link up hosted by Lynn Sollitto. This week’s topic is to share a writing success. To shamelessly write about ourselves, and our success(es).
Just to have my books out there and to have people reading them, I think, is a writing success in itself. I still remember the feeling of selling my first book to someone I didn’t know. There was disbelief at first and running through my list of friends and family to track down who bought it. Then, when I realized a stranger bought my book there was a crazy smile, and happy dance.
However, I also LOVE when I get response from fans (another writing success). I love to know what people are thinking and what they have to say about what I’ve written. I’ve received short blurbs (Like I’ve attached below. Copy and Paste did something really weird to my post, so it’s going to be at the bottom of this post.), tweets, reviews and I’ve received a few detailed analyses through private messages. I’ve appreciated them all.
It gives me incite into how people are interpreting what I’m writing, coming from the unbiased view of someone who isn’t my grandma (who has loved everything she’s read so far). As much as I love my grandma, I think she’s pretty much obligated to love everything I write (or at least tell me she does).
There’s just something different about having a stranger like what I’m writing.
Another writing success, that goes hand in hand with fans, is that I’ve started a fan club on Patreon. Fans can pay different amounts for access and exclusive information. It’s just starting out (a few days old), but I have 21 posts on there right now and plan on adding more in the days coming. I’ve wanted to start a fan club for a while, and Patreon seems to be a great platform to do it. Plus it’s an artist crowdsourcing site which can help me fund ideas I have to make my books the best they can be.
Alright. I’m going to stop talking about myself now, and let these fine reviews finish off this post.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hello! I've been meaning to read this book for a long time now, and I've gotta say; you have one lovely writing style. The description is well done, and makes both the characters and the environment feel alive. I'm not too much of a fan of this kind of setting, but this is certainly a good, well written story, and this book is certainly going to my reading list. Keep up the good work!
