The time has finally arrived…my debut book has been released! You can find it on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and it will soon be on other sites as well. Information on the book’s release, and anything else related to the book, can be found on the “Resistant” tab on the home page of my blog. To celebrate the release, here is a picture created by the online word cloud tool “Wordle”…
It has been quite a journey, I must say–one that seems like it started a long, long time ago. Through this journey I learned a good deal about writing and about the industry in general. That is something I believe is a vital part of being passionate about something: you must be involved in your craft and not just go through the motions. This experience has definitely brought me closer to the idea of not only wanting to keep writing, but to work hard to write a lot. I am very grateful for the love and support given to me by family, friends, and colleagues. It has helped me bring to life something I created from nothing, and that is an amazing thing to me.
Through this process, I found myself thoroughly enjoying what I was doing. I put in quite a bit of research for this book to help supplement the information I knew already. Creating a story couched in the fabric of history is something that makes me giddy when it all comes together. It’s always intriguing to address the “what-ifs” of history, as well as to see how events could have tied into the “real thing.” It’s been done many times before; I’m just giving my take on the concept.
To conclude my reflection, at least for the moment, I would like to say that I look forward to creating more stories and bringing them to you for reading. I am always open to suggestions and criticisms, because I want to become a better writer. If you read my story, I ask that you leave a comment somewhere or write a review. Those words from the reader’s perspective really help me out in a lot of ways!
