Can I write a book? That was the question I asked three years ago when I put my first post on this site. It had taken me three years to write the post in the first place as I was pretty sure that the answer would be NO. But I’m nothing if not tenacious, and when I set my mind on something, there is not a lot can stop me following through!
Not having any idea of what I was doing, I’ve taken a lot of tiny steps over the last six years, but finally, the first part of my family saga, Hooks & Eyes, is available on Amazon! 😃
To say it is a feeling of accomplishment is an understatement as any of you who have published a book will understand. But now, with the book done, I have a strange feeling of what next? Not that I’m short of things to do. I have numerous emails to write and promotions to set up to tell the world that my ‘baby’ is out there. Not to mention the fact that I have another four books in the series that need either editing or writing. Yet somehow, for now, they can wait. I need a little time take stock and reflect on what I’ve achieved.
In doing so, I can’t help but wonder if I asked the right question all those years ago. Rather than ‘Can I write a book?’ perhaps I should have asked, ‘Can I write a good book?’ A book that people will want to read and will remember.
I guess I’ll have to be patient for a while longer before I find the answer to that. For now, it’s time to be happy and hope other people like what I’ve written.
Hooks & Eyes will be available on Amazon for 99p / 99c (or equivalent) until end March 2017 and is FREE as part of Kindle Unlimited.
