One of the best feelings in the world is when someone reads something I’ve written and they tell me they couldn’t stop reading – they couldn’t put it down. I had this happen with my first book. Even though I can count quite quickly the number of people who have read my first book they all said the same thing. It was a page-turner. It was addicting to read. They couldn’t put it down. They finished it in one session.
I love to hear that! Anyone who has written a book knows the feeling.
And now that the second book in that series is complete (still in editing phase since I’m pretty much doing everything myself and I do have a life besides writting – although I wish I didn’t some days) I am getting the same response. I have had a few people read the completed draft of book 2 and they say the same things. Couldn’t put it down. Loved it. Read it in a day.
Now if I could figure out how to get both books into more hands. I know not everyone will like what I wrote. Not everyone is meant to. But both men and women, young children and older people, love the books so far. One of these days I’ll figure out how to get the concept into the hands of someone who knows more than I do about the best way to market and SELL.
Until that day I am still writing. Have an interesting new concept I am working on. Hopefully it’s just a one book story (book series ARE harder to write, no doubt). But either way I’ll tell the story my characters want me to tell.
After all, it is THEIR story and I’m just the one taking dictation :).
