I know everyone says you are a “real writer” once you start writing. Being published, winning an award, accumulating reviews, or hitting a special list are all wonderful, but if you haven’t achieved any of those, it does not mean you aren’t a writer.
Still, it was a special, exciting feeling last week to finally be published, and have my book, Unexplained, available for sale (on Amazon now, other retailers to come soon). And today, my first interview as a published author went live, so yes, I feel like I’ve finally made it!
Author/Professor/Blogger Julie Tetel Anderson contacted me a few weeks ago, and I was thrilled to be interviewed on her blog. If you haven’t checked out her website, you should. In addition to interviewing up and coming romance authors, she also explores a variety of subjects on her blog. Romance, travel, and languages are her passions. She’s written several romance novels and also some non-fiction, and her articles have been featured by such publications as the Chicago Sun-Times and the Huffington Post.
I found her questions thoughtfully posed and professional. Here’s the link to the interview:
I’d like to thank Julie for interviewing me, the timing was a great kick-off to my release schedule for the Higher Elevation Series. I’d also like to thank all the bloggers, authors and readers who shared posts about my debut, Unexplained. And a huge thanks to those who took the time to leave a review─I so appreciate it!
I was thrilled to see the reviews have been positive. Unexplained (Higher Elevation Series Book One) is a special story. I’ll be sharing some behind the scenes tidbits of how this story evolved in my upcoming newsletters so if you’d like to sign up, see my website here.
My release schedule continues with the cover reveal for Untouched, Book Two of the Higher Elevation Series on November 14th, 2016. It will be up for pre-order soon, with a release date of November 22. Book Three, Undeniable, is scheduled to release January 3rd, 2017, so stay tuned for updates on that one.
So if you haven’t achieved some of your writing career goals yet, keep trying! If I can do it, so can you.
