This weekend marks the one year anniversary of this site. To think a year has already slipped by on the calendar is incredible (and worrisome – SLOW DOWN, TIME!). When I started I was constantly worried about finding topics for the blog and connecting with readers. I had no book on the market, no social media saavy, nothing.
Now? Book three of Greystone is coming out next month. Putting the blog together still has the same challenges, the same worries, but it’s been fun and exciting to write here week in and week out.
I prefer to write. You might not know that about me. (HA) If there was a choice to be made I would rather write ten books every year than blog, tweet, post, comment, etc.
And I would be wrong.
Being here? Doing this for the last year has given me an outlet to do something I try not to do around people. TALK. ABOUT MYSELF. (Gross…)
I am a process junkie. I absolutely love learning about the difficulties of a project, about where ideas come from and how to make them a reality for readers. How could I not share that part of the journey if I had the opportunity?
That’s been my favorite part of running the site. I hope you’ve felt the same.
Before this becomes too sappy (too late, Lou…) how about getting to the awesome news for the weekend?
Two Big Anniversary Sales! This Weekend Only!
Tom Germann writes some fantastic fiction in his own right and has been nice enough to host a great 99-cent sale this weekend! Dozens of science fiction and fantasy titles have been discounted for only this weekend so be sure to pick them up while you can!
All books will be 99-cents on August 5th through August 7th so check them out!
Patty Jensen is another incredible talent. (I am currently reading the first novel in her Ambassador series and enjoying it quite a bit.) She is also a master at putting together amazing promos for readers! 100 Books to celebrate the Winter season (in the Southern Hemisphere anyway…) all for 99-cents each!
How does this fit in with the one year anniversary of this site? Excellent question!
Getting excited about The Medusa Coin next month but still don’t have a copy of the first two books? Have a friend who needs a copy of the books so you have someone to talk to about the craziness of Portents?
Please spread the word about these sales if you can. There are many talented authors involved and I’m looking forward to hearing what books made it on your buy pile.
Signs of Portents Links!
Tales from Portents Links!
A final word of thanks
It’s important to remember why you do certain things in this life. I spoke about the writing side earlier this week with author goals but the only reason this site exists is to connect with you, the reader. For those of you who have reached out to share your experience with the book or writing or even reading in general, I want to thank you.
Seeing your comments and reading your e-mails has been an amazing experience on its own and reminds me why I show up every week.
Here’s to another great year on the site!
Thanks for reading and enjoy the anniversary sale!
