I just wanted to take a moment to thank each and everyone of you for your support. I entered the self-publishing world this time last year, and it is amazing to see the level of growth and connection I have made with my readers and fellow indie authors.
So, thank you for your private messages on Instagram.
Thank you for leaving a book review on Amazon or Goodreads.
Thank you for your creative Instagram stories to let me know you are currently reading my novels.
Thank you for the fan videos, reels and artwork you posted online.
Thank you for taking part in the international book giveaways.
And thank you for purchasing my book, or sharing a free pdf version with your friends.
Every little thing that you have done to support me as an artist does makes a difference. I am truly overwhelmed by the love you have shown me over the past year. Your kind words gets me excited as I continue my journey as a self-published author. I am finally achieving my life-long goals, and you guys make this journey far more meaningful.
At the beginning of this year, I made it a personal goal to connect with my readers and fellow indie writers because I believe it is important to place yourself in a community of like-minded individuals. As you already know, writing is an independent process- a lonely one. There is a long span of time where it is just my computer and my thoughts as I sit alone for several hours in a day. Nonetheless, once a book is published and distributed to readers across the world it immediately makes a connection. Moreover, I love to hear your thoughts and the way you critically analyze a text. So to conclude this impulsive rant, I feel an overwhelming wave of gratitude towards all of you. I love you so much!
Here is to many more years of me publishing novels, and you lovely people getting to read them.
