Wow… finally! I just looked and saw that both of my books, STAY and HOLD ON, are live on all the major retail channels. It’s taken a while to get to this point and I won’t bore you with all of the details, but publishing two books in a year has been quite an experience. I’m only going to focus on good things and the fact that readers can buy my books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ITunes and Kobo, is a GREAT thing!
It is so surreal to me that just a year ago I started to write Stay, my first book ever. When it was released in November of last year it was a dream come true for me and I hope I never forget the feeling I had when I saw my work listed on the Amazon website. The second time around, with Hold On, it was easier to believe this is all really happening, but it’s no less exciting. It’s still a dream come true.

With the support of my family, my friends and some really knowledgeable “book” people, I have watched my little dream become a reality and as I watch it grow every day, I’m humbled by the incredible support I’ve been getting from readers and bloggers. It really is what keeps me going and makes me want to continue to write.
One of the best compliments I’ve received recently is that HOLD ON is better than STAY. Some people might take that to mean that maybe STAY wasn’t that good. I take it to mean that maybe I’ve become a better writer. I’ve listened and watched and paid close attention to everything everyone has told me and tried to use the advice, criticism and compliments to help me grow as a writer. If HOLD ON is truly better than I’m going to assume it’s for that reason. All I know is that I worked very hard on putting out the best book that I could.
As I sit here a year later writing the third book in the Alexa Reed series, I still love every minute of this journey. Thank you all for being on it with me because although it may sound trite I couldn’t, or wouldn’t want to, do it without you.
