I have twelve published books total, three only in ebooks because they are shorts. My first print was done just over three years ago. I was proud of myself. Two years prior, I started publishing in ebook format. It has only been five years and I have published twelve books.
Every year, I published at least two since I started. It’s been something I pressed myself to do. Because I needed to. Ever since I was little, I was questioned about becoming an author. Most cannot say their high school English teacher pushed them toward writing. If I was not so defiant, I probably would have become an author far earlier than I did.
Next year, I will aim for at least three: Unbelievable; The Secret of Preshift; and The Secret of Luna. I may press for Unavoidable and Poem a Day May 2019. There is no guarantee I will get The Secret of Luna out there. I just have high hopes I will. There is no guarantee I won’t get another story ready to show off. I can hope and dream.
Published stories so far:
My skills as a cover artist have improved. My skills as an editor have improved. My writing skills have improved. I’m not where I was five years ago.
Just because I am making little income from this does not mean I’m a complete failure. I’ve been told my books are great. One day, more people will find comfort in my stories. Today is not the day, but I am setting myself up for that future.
