An update and a heartfelt thank you!

So Persephone has been out for almost 2 weeks. What's happened in that time? Well, before it went live on All Romance eBooks, it smashed into the Sci-Fi and Fantasy category, earning its Bestseller Silver Star, and has managed to stay high in that category. I'm truly blown away. It makes me so thankful for all the hard work that our very own Mistress, Gina Kincade does behind the scenes, hard work we don't even see until we get the amazing results, such as the Silver Star.


What else... Oh, I've entered the book into the Paranormal/Sci-Fi category for the Easychair Bookstore 2016 Awards. I'm going to see if I can't just take out the Best Paranormal 2 years in a row ;)

And possibly one of the most exciting things, for me, is that there are a few truly amazing reviews that have been posted. I'm thrilled that people are enjoying Persephone's story so much. I've read reviews of people crying and cringing and laughing in all the right spots, people truly getting the story, and not wanting the story to end.

Those words have my evil muse pondering over the possibility of a sequel. Yet another possible story to add to the 17+ stories already vying for the "Next" top spot in my routine. The joys of being an author, right? Having to battle such a mischievous muse is a daily challenge. But one I honestly could not imagine going back to not fighting this battle every day.

Writing has become a real escape, a method of catharsis for me in difficult times. I really could not go back to not having this creative outlet. And so I have to thank, yet again, every single person who has supported me in one way or another. While the writing itself I do for me, it is such a pleasure that I'm able to put my stories out there for others to enjoy, and that they genuinely do enjoy them. While I know that I won't be able to please everyone, I'm thankful to have really only had negative reviews with constructive criticism, including comments that I am willing to consider and take on board. So genuinely, truly, I want to thank everyone who have read my books and said anything helpful and supportive. That is all us authors want in a review. So please, leave a review as often as you can! Even just a short comment, it truly means a lot to us!

Biography

Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the same cereal box each morning at breakfast. Paranormal and fantasy captured her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn't until high school that she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave poetry a try.
She wandered away from writing for a few years, but was soon encouraged to return and, within months of picking up the proverbial pen, Phoenix' first story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was accepted for publication by Naughty Nights Press. While working on the rest of the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix decided to take on a university degree, and is now in the final stretch of her Bachelor of Art's degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, with plans to continue on to her Master's degree.
In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover she'd made two Top 5 lists with three entries in the Easychair Bookstore Awards. In June, it was announced she had placed first in Best Paranormal with Once Bitten Twice Shy, the second installment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy, while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and Wolf Smitten placed third in their respective categories of Best Paranormal and Best Series.
With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous distributors, number 1 bestseller on several Amazon lists, and this was quickly followed by the announcement of her achievement of number 1 bestseller for her publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for the full second quarter of 2015. The awards and achievements have only served to strengthen her ambitions, and she is now aiming at reaching the bestseller lists for USA Today and New York Times. 
Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her year, and has been busy organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with seven other authors. Its release at the end of June was greatly anticipated, and she is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.
