Two years ago today, I took a chance and independently published a book called Way Off Plan, the start of my Firsts and Forever series. I went in with fairly low expectations, fully expecting my story to get swallowed up in the giant sea of Amazon, never to be heard from again. But that didn't happen.
Instead, here I am, currently writing the seventh Firsts and Forever book! Every book in the series has found more and more readers, and I'm so proud that all of them have made it into the top three in gay fiction and gay romance on Amazon. In Pieces and Skye Blue both even made it to number one! I cried with happiness when that happened, it was just a dream come true. Two of my books were also Rainbow Award finalists, which was such an honor!
Because of all of you, my wonderful readers, I've been able to turn my love and my passion into the career of my dreams, and I'm so incredibly grateful for your ongoing support! I'm also honored that I can call many of you friends. Since joining Facebook earlier this year, I've gotten to know readers from all around the world, and that has been the most incredible gift!
I was just reading back over the blog post I put up for my one year anniversary, which you can find here. I was so surprised and overwhelmed a year ago at the success I'd had as an indie writer, and you know what? I'm still blown away!
Here's what I published over the last two years:
The Firsts and Forever Series:
Way Off Plan
The Paranormal Side of Things:
The Tinder Chronicles
Up next is Against the Wall, the seventh book in my Firsts and Forever series, which will be available in early 2015.
It's been a wild ride and I can't wait to see what happens next! I feel so grateful and so blessed. Thank you for being a part of my journey!
