I am sick. Horrible, winter cold sick. I can barely keep my eyes open, fighting the urge to go to sleep and have been like that for the last few days. I haven't been this ill for a long time.
BUT, I am still awake because right at this moment Another Chance is the number one contemporary romance title on iBooks UK and number fourteen overall. This is so crazy, and exciting!
While I am working on the next book, I also thought that winter would be a good opportunity to go through my back catalogue, and tidy up anything that was missed back when I pressed the publish button. It would be a quiet time of year with not being able to go out and about with the bad weather, I thought, and I know that prior to Taking Chances, there was space for improvement. Though, I'm finding that sometimes, it doesn't matter how many pairs of eyes you have on something, little things still slip through.
It really doesn't seem so quiet right now. The beauty of e-books however, is that it's easy to fix those little things that bug us. I have a much stronger team of people helping me now than I did even six months ago, and going forward things will be even better!
When I started my self-publishing journey, I had no idea how amazing it would be. Eighteen months in, I have had the bitter disappointment of failure, the highs of success, and found some truly wonderful, caring, kind people along the way. I have been truly blessed.
And now, I'm going back to sleep. :)
