Milestones

As a writer, the pursuit of publishing is a typically solitary endeavour. So we must set ourselves goals and when we achieve these goals we have to make a fuss, because no one else will make the fuss for us. 🙂

My writer milestones:

In June this year, I reached my 1 year publishing anniversary!

I didn’t think anyone would read my books when I began (although I was secretly hoping). I estimated 100 sales in my first year. Well, I sold 1090. In that year I wrote and released five books. My fifth one came out in June and since then my sales are better than ever.

My original goal was six books to publish in my first year. Life outside of writing got in the way a few times and so I had to resign myself with five. Before the end of 2014 I hope to have released two more books. One of which I’m working my butt off on right now.

Today, I received my 50th review of Concealed Power on Amazon and it was 5 stars. This month I had my 20,000th copy of Concealed Power downloaded. That means there are 20,000 people out there who could read the book and then go on to read the rest of my series. That’s an awesome feeling.

In the last three months I’ve sold ten times the amount of books I normally do. These are small milestones compared to other authors out there, but for me they are the world.

But statistics are objective goals. My craft has improved immensely. My grammar and spelling are better than ever. My scenes, chapters, arcs are all tighter and more succinct. When I give advice to other writers I know what I’m talking about. Regardless there’s still so much left to know. Writers are never the best they can be because there’s always something left to improve.

I live for writing. Writing is the way I live. It’s a massive part of who I am. Without it, I would be a lesser person. It’s how I join with the world. It’s how I make a contribution. It’s the first thing I think of when I wake up, and the last thing in my mind when I drift off.

Cogito ergo sum. Except for me it’s. ‘I write, therefore I am’.

I am lucky and blessed to be doing this. There is no other way to express it. So to my readers out there, and I know not many of you will ever read this post. Thank you for your continued support.

Updates

Hey everyone,

I’m currently in the process of updating this website. If you find any pages without content, be assured I’m working to get text and images onto them. Thanks for your patience while I do this.

Book Four in the Healers of Meligna Series. Warning, Spoilers!

So here’s the proof, I just wrote the first few paragraphs for chapter one. Want a look? These are unedited and written 5 minutes ago. My first drafts are getting cleaner as I develop as a writer.

**********
(Book Yet Unnamed)
Chapter One

As we skimmed the underside of the cloud bank, my heart hammered in my ears. Dread, excitement, power; three fervent feelings that set my body on fire. I am Sala’s rider. I can lead Bivinia.

The pegan’s wings pounded the frigid mountain air. Each of her silvery white feathers stitched together to form the perfect instrument of flight. As we veered left, I tightened my grasp on Eiridan’s side, afraid I might slip from the beast.

‘Isn’t this amazing, Adenine?’ the prince shouted over his shoulder. ‘Wooo! We did it Adenine!’ Eiridan raised one hand into the sky in premature celebration, unaware of the disappointment that lay ahead.

‘Be careful!’ I said. If I fell from this height, I would surely splatter against the sharp rocks below. No amount of special healing blood could fix that.

***********

I’ve finished plotting the book so I know what I’m going to write now, save a few things I will likely change as the story progresses and more exciting ideas pop into my head. I just want you to all see what I’m working on now.

I hope you are excited, this book will conclude this series making it a quartet…

Depending on sales and popularity, I have a trilogy in mind that will continue from this last book. I actually think the trilogy will be even better than this series, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see if you, my readers, want more of Adenine’s world.

Happy reading!
