Oh what a year! It has been a year since I self-published my first book. I have learned so much, and come so far in what seems like a short time. I am currently trying NOT to rush to publish my next books. I want them not to be good, but GREAT! I want to grow as a writer and have my characters grow as well. I want to continue getting better and become a top-notch writer.
Notice I did not say best selling. I want to be a quality writer, and that does not always mean popular. I do not want to turn out a bunch of carbon copies of the same book, with only the names and small details changed. I want quality books that deal with real issues, that give people hope, make the reader laugh, and maybe heal or help someone.
Don’t get me wrong. I want to sell books. I want to write books. I would love to be a full-time author, and not have to work a variety of part-time jobs to make ends meet. Until I am able to reach that point, I will squeeze in my writing wherever and whenever I can, and stay focused on quality over quantity.
