It’s finally happened! Successor, my debut YA fantasy novel, released last Wednesday, and I can now say, after all these years, that I am a published author. Publishing a book has been my top goal in life up to this point, and I can’t believe I’ve accomplished it. It really is a dream come true.
Now comes the tough part: not getting bummed when people say they don’t like it. It’s a hard, unavoidable truth to accept that not everyone will like what you create. Everyone’s tastes differ, and that’s perfectly okay! So I will just try my best to be happy they gave it a shot in the first place. Hopefully they’ll find at least a small bit they enjoyed. That’s the best I can hope for.
So with that being said, it’s time to focus on what’s next—the sequel! It’s still in the planning stage with bits and pieces of scenes written down, but it’s coming! There’s also another story I’m working on at the same time, so let’s see how I do writing two at once.
Have your copy of Successor? Already read it? Let me know what you think!
