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!
