I know it has now been an age since I last posted on here, but there is a reason … and here it is: I finally managed to finish my gothic paranormal romance novel, Cruxim, and to go through the rounds of betas and edits to whip it into shape. It is now available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. It is a strange feeling. When I self-published my poetry, short stories and kids’ books on Amazon last year, my expectations were relatively low. I did it largely as an experiment. Publishing a novel feels both exhilarating and a little terrifying. I hope it does well, but I also know that this is such a hit-and-miss kind of an industry. All I can really do is let my little novel fly and see how it goes.
My goal now is to finish writing the sequel before mid-year, and to spend less time on the computer and more time out in the open with the kid and family this year. That’s not a resolution exactly, just something I hope will happen. I”m scaling back my editing to do some more writing and some more living. I wish you all a very Happy 2013. May all of your publishing dreams come true this year too.
