So, um, my book’s finally on sale…

Having never climbed an actual mountain I nonetheless think I feel something of what climbers must experience when they finally summit – minus the frostbite and delirium caused by lack of oxygen – yup, I’m talking about ‘ok, now what’? Oh, I’m thrilled to pieces to have my novel published and looking forward to many more, but this has been a dream that I’ve had for a very long time and now that I’ve achieved it, there’s a little sadness too. All those years of striving for this moment and having that dream to hold onto pulled me through some rough moments. Now, I can let that dream go and start chasing the next one. Jeez, I’m probably making this sound a lot more melancholic than it is. I really am happy, and I know I now have a better understanding of the highs and lows my authors experience, too. And I still have bookstores to stalk so that I can see who wanders by and picks up my book…wait, did I just say that out loud?

Oh, and a special shout out to my editor, Ed Schlesinger. You’re in my thoughts.

    Incredible Book…

    Just completed “A Darkness Forged in Fire” and wanted to let you know I throughly enjoyed it! I’ll be waiting with baited breath for the second in the series!

    Keep up the great work.

      Music to my ears, thanks 🙂 I was just working on the second book earlier this morning. I’ll be turning it into my editor this fall for publication next summer.
