Reviews and Gratitude
One of the hardest things an author will do - besides write a book - is try to get an audience. These days, with the glut of available books on sale, low-priced, box-set, or free, it's insanely difficult to get noticed. Readers have to sift through many possibilities, some with great covers and not-so-great editing, some with superb stories and covers that don't hint enough at the treasure within. As readers, it's hard enough to choose which book to read, let alone set aside time out of our busy days to devote to that pleasure.
So, it's with heaping amounts of gratitude that I'd like to turn my attention to my readers. Those of you who have set aside some of your hard-earned time and money to take a trip through one of my books, please know that you are the reason I keep doing this. You are why I keep going back to my keyboard to spin these stories. I am grateful to each and every one of you who have taken the time to share this writing journey with me. I am also more grateful than words can say to those of you who have taken time to write reviews or mark my books "liked" on Amazon or Goodreads. I don't currently have a newsletter, and I'm not out there hustling my books as much as I could be, so the fact that you found me, read my work, and thought enough of it to share that enjoyment with others, is better than any writing award I could ever win.
Thank you, so very much. I hope you'll stick with me, because the best is yet to come.
