An Anniversary …

That’s right … On this day last year, VENDETTA was published and hit an unsuspecting public. For a brief moment (like, six seconds), sales went through the roof.

Several weeks later, I would realize there’s something to the whole, “marketing and self-promotion” thing I kept hearing successful indie writers quacking about on all of their blogs and podcasts … You know, the ones with thousands of subscribers. The ones who have sold more than 100 books …

In any case, I’m not — as one might imply from my tone in the paragraph above — bitter. I wrote a book! HA! There are over 8 million of them on Amazon, but one of them is mine all mine. And soon to be joined by another. Not soon enough, as several of my readers have made abundantly clear. I’ve taken a lot of, “don’t be like George RR Martin and make me wait three years for the next book” type of comments. All I can say is, I’m working on it. Honest!

What I feel most on this, the first anniversary of VENDETTA, is gratitude.

Gratitude for the wonderful reviews I’ve received (28 on Amazon and five on Goodreads), and for the many compliments given the novel …

Gratitude for the enthusiastic, unconditional support of other writers I’ve come to know and respect …

And most of all, gratitude for a wife who supports and encourages my writing. Can’t ask for much more than that …

But I will. Buy a copy! Buy a friend a copy! Review it! Then join the throngs eagerly anticipating the release of the next book in the series, END OF DAYS …
