I Wrote (a) Best Seller (haha)

Yes, I was deliberate in choosing my new book’s title. Call it incredible cheek or just wishful thinking, but the title does work. Although this novel is about much more than a best-selling novel. You’ll see when you read the blurb.

I suppose this is what’s termed a “soft” release. Actually, I’d planned on a July 1st launch, but since I’ve gone back to work part-time, I’ve made some adjustments to my life schedule. While I’m working, I can’t access the internet, which means I can’t respond to readers’ comments, etc. And I want to be engaged. So I hit the “Save and Publish” button last night (very late), and when I arose this morning, Best Seller was live in the Kindle store (the print version will be available within a week).

This is novel #5. My first book was published on August 8, 2012, so five books in two years is pretty good, I think. Working a couple of days a week out of the house will likely change my writing time, but I’m hoping it will keep me more mindful of the value of those hours when I can write.

It’s always my hope that my writing improves with each book. Certainly, with the Chocolate Series, I can see a maturation from the first to the third book. This one challenged me when I decided to write in the first person, present tense. I’ve read similar books – some that work well, some that miss. I’m hoping that it puts you, the reader, right in the middle of Robin’s life. And whatever you think of it, please feel free to let me know by posting a review. I can accept criticism, especially when it’s thoughtful and kind :-)

So, we march to the Fourth and what I consider the peak of summer (even though it’s really just the beginning). Enjoy this time – and happy reading!
