Yes – that is correct. One whole year! And WOW – what a year it has been for Liam and Jay. Can you believe that people started opening their books/kindles/computers/iPads and started reading, just 365 days ago?
I was going to miss my train…
And that’s how it all started for me. I can’t believe it’s just been a year. The amount of personal growth I have had to go through, the good reviews and the bad, the accolades and the awards…
Wow. Are you sure it’s just been 365 days?
Oh, my Gawd!
I feel like I’ve been doing this for years.
Since then I have been touched to the core by the kindness extended to me from readers, reviewers, other authors and publishing staff.
I started out on this crazy pathway in January 2013. I had this dream-in-the-sky idea about maybe, if I worked hard enough, I would be able to one day write a book. My idea was to practice and learn about creative writing, and that I would give it two years. I wanted to have a manuscript within two years on my computer that was at the point where people would probably pay money to read it.
Some twenty-seven months later, I’m sitting here with twenty-one started stories in my draft folder, and at least twelve scribbled down in my little notepad. But what makes me the proudest, is that I can look up from my computer and see my books. They’re sitting up there on a shelf, and just below them are the framed covers of my books. And yes – snuggled between The Blinding Light and The Shearing Gun is Loving Jay.
So thank you everyone who has played a small part on my fantastic journey in the last 12 months. I could never top it (not unless Hugh Jackman knocks on my door demanding the rights to the movie based on my book), so I will have to dream less for the next 12 months.
