I did it!
I am thrilled to announce that I have finished the third full length book in my Fortune Bay Series,
Home for Christmas, coming out November 1st (on Amazon, kobo, nook and iTunes.)
I told a good friend today that I was finished the fourth book – and my one year plan to publish four novels would be on track and
she said,”I think four books in one year is very prolific.”
I said, “I did not write the four books in one year!”
That took eight years, that’s from 0 to 300,000 printed words. (Now I write much faster than one book in two years, it was the first one that took much, much longer as I learned the craft.)
But I have to wonder, what did people think I was doing for those 8 years if my good friends don’t realize I was writing (and learning to write) these books? LOL
I was always quite bold about telling people that I was writing a novel because that’s what I was doing and I thought that telling people was a good way to keep myself accountable.
It worked for me, but it obviously did not sink in for some of them, because that is not the first person who totally didn’t understand.
Looking back in my notes today as I finish the editing on book four, I see it was October 19, 2015 that I announced on my (now defunct) old blog my plan to publish the 4 books, so I’m pleased to be on target for my one year plan. (I originally planned to publish Home for Christmas Mid-October but a few months ago decided to change it to November 1, but close enough.)
Anyway I’m just here to say – I did it!
In another post I might ruminate on what I learned in the process, but tonight, just join me in celebrating with a glass of wine.
Thanks for stopping by.
