One Year Anniversary of Publishing!

A year ago, on March 5th 2012, I officially launched my first book! It was a novelette, which by the end of the year would become the first part of a complete novel. I published the second, third and fourth novelettes, as well as a companion ebook. I put the four novelettes together into a novel, and I also produced a beautiful (in my opinion!) print version. A print version that is quickly finding its way into school libraries here!

It's been such an exciting first year. Book reviews, ratings, blog tours, interviews, giveaways, and PEOPLE READING MY STORIES! And LOVING them! It's been (and still is) hard work. But soooo worth it!


THANK YOU to all the bloggers, writers and readers out there who've helped to make the past year such a fantastic one. It's certainly a journey I couldn't have undertaken alone (well, I guess I could have, but it would have been lonely and boring and probably very short!). YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

I know! I managed to get it into a bookstore where the owner travels around to school libraries and recommends books. She really enjoyed mine, so she's been promoting it!

I've only read the first part - only got an e-reader recently :)

Just read about your book over at Damyanti's blog, Rachael. Loved the excerpt. A year since you were published. How cool is that! Congratulations.
