It’s been a week…
Aside from my book launch last Tuesday, I’ve had some interesting news in my everyday career. My current company now knows I have a temporary offer letter from the government to work air traffic control federally. It’s been a long process, but I think it’s coming together soon. I’ll get transferred again after being in Idaho for nearly two years, and at this point, I don’t even know where I’m going. I’ll get my list of facilities to choose from any day now. There are so many changes on the horizon, and a world of opportunities now that I know what I’m capable of.
Reminiscence has done surprisingly well in the first week of release with me having virtually no experience in this field. I’ve sold over 50 copies between the Kindle and paperback editions and so far have received 3 different 5 star “⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” reviews! It may not be a bestseller yet, but that’s incredible to me. Now my goals are to expand marketing, pick up some ads, and hopefully get some good word of mouth recommendations. I already have a draft of book two written, as long as I stay on track editing, I hope to have it ready by winter this year. I think once I can have both books out at once, I can really gain some momentum. One of these days if I keep acting like I know what I’m doing, it may turn out that I’ll do okay 🙂
It kind of seems like I’m on the brink of some major changes here, and I’m 80% excited, 10% scared, 8% hungry, and 2% tired. (rough estimates… it might be 80% hungry, who knows.) I know successes don’t happen overnight, so I’m willing nurture this project. I feel like this trilogy is a part of me, as I’m sure all authors do. We’re all hoping our story is different, that someone will read it and think… “Wow, I’ve got to tell everyone about this!” But only time will tell what will really happen.
Here’s to hoping!
