Yesterday saw the release of the Realms and Rebels box set and what an exciting day it was!
My book, Hell's Calling, co-written with my super talented friend Skye MacKinnon released as part of the box set and we are both super proud of our spin on Dante's Inferno. We had such fun writing this book and can't wait to move onto the next book in the series which, all going to plan, will release later this year.
You know, I almost didn't take part in this box set, but Skye and the rest of my Flock author buddies managed to twist my arm (thanks ladies) and I caved lol! Seriously though, before this book I hadn't co-written before and was terrified I'd balls it up! Thankfully, Skye's and my writing style seem to just merge really well and the story almost seemed to write itself.
This release has given me a number of firsts.
- A first co-write
- A first number one spot in iTunes
- A first bestseller flag in Amazon (Canada so far, we're all crossing fingers for more)
- An author rank! At last glance (okay, I was stalking the list ;) it was #43 in Paranormal Romance. Holy Shiznits!
And hopefully, next Wednesday we'll find out if we get on the USA Today bestsellers list!
What has this experience so far taught me?
TO GO FOR IT!
I almost didn't, I almost let my self-doubt and worries get the better of me. I'm so glad I didn't listen! Sometimes you got to just take a leap of faith and see where the dice lands. This whole authoring journey has been a roller coaster ride with plenty of downs, as well as ups. This experience is most definitely and up!
If you want to read what got me all those firsts.... then Realms And Rebels is $0.99 for this week only. So grab it whilst you can and get stuck in!
