It’s been a month and change since my book came out, and wow. I hit #70 on the Amazon Kindle store for Gaslamp Fantasy. Between two events, I sold out of my initial author stock (which was not insubstantial), and I am now a full member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (which has been a long standing dream I thought was still months off at the soonest).
I have gotten some great reviews, and at my “Home” convention of JordanCon, I was made to feel so celebrated and loved that I think it even got through my thick skull that this is real.
For those that missed the announcements, Sarah J Sover did “win” the pre-order contest we were having, although in way we both won because we both blew “records” out of the water like the fairy pirates we are and made our publisher carry so many big heavy cases of books (not really, he made a minion do that). Here’s a picture from the “signing party”
More books are on their way for me to hand-sell, and I will be in Myrtle Beach near the end of May for XCon, and then I’ll be at ConCarolinas two weeks after that. Currently looking into other potential convention opportunities over the summer. I’m also gearing up to start working on Book 3 (since Book 2 is already in the editor’s hands).
If you have bought my book, thank you so much, and please, go leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads if. If you haven’t… what are you waiting for! You can get it here in Kindle, Paperback, or Hardcover! It is also available on Barnes & Noble if that is your jam.
