It’s a truth universally acknowledged that author blogs are often a mixed bag. They aren’t novels, they aren’t essays, and for me at least, they are uncharted territory. I hope this one doesn’t disappoint, but odds are, it will take me a while to make it really awesome.
I’ve enjoyed the feedback from the readers, regardless of whether or not they loved the novel or they didn’t. Somehow these readers who weren’t related to me and didn’t know me stumbled upon ‘The Magic of Cape Disappointment‘ and took a chance.
They spent hours of their time with my characters and what a great, tremendous honor that is for me. And, let’s face it, a bit of a miracle considering the very large book market available today. Not only did they read it, but they wrote a review! Again, people not related to me read my novel. Thanks, guys – it really does mean the world to me.
Every comment helps me learn how to improve and how to make the next novel even more awesome. So, at the end of the day, I’m okay that there wasn’t a team of people to approve the launch of my novel. Of course, wouldn’t it be great to have that type of support at the beginning of any project? Still, I’ve learned so much and have been really inspired. So inspired that I’m writing the follow-up novel!
Friends, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the novel and characters. I hope that if you are working on a creative project that you push on through the fear and panic, because it’s not as scary as you might think once you’re on the other side.
