This is going to be MY year because I refuse to settle for anything less.
I think it’s natural for many of us to think we can’t accomplish minor goals, let alone our dreams. And of course with that attitude it’s a self fulfilling prophecy. It was that type of mentality that for years prevented me from publishing Waking to Black. Be it, those years did afford me the opportunity to proofread and refine Evie and Adam’s initial foray into falling-in-love territory—however they were riddled with self-doubt.
I wish I could say I’ve destroyed the self-doubt monster, but I haven’t.
What I can claim is that in self-publishing two books in 2018, I discovered readers do exist who enjoy what I write. Coasting on the wings of that type of attitude I submitted for a BookBub deal and to my surprise I was accepted for an international deal.
If you don’t know about BookBub, it’s suffice to say that this platform is a marketing unicorn for authors. Getting accepted by them for a feature deal is HUGE!
My deal is February 15, 2019 and I’m so excited.
If you don’t take the risk of being rejected you will never know the joy of being accepted. This is going to be MY year and I hope it’s YOUR year to!
P.S. I’ve been reworking the print-copy cover of Waking to Black. Hopefully I can figure out the formatting issue and I can update it on Amazon in the next few days.
