Another year draws to a close. This one was my first full year as a full-time author, which remains utterly mind-boggling to me!
It’s been a busy year. To date, we’ve launched six novels and I’ve lost track of audiobook launches. We’ll hopefully be launching a seventh, ONSET: My Enemy’s Enemy, before the end of the year.
Somewhere along the way, we managed to move provinces and begin getting ourselves settled into Ontario.
It’s been a good year. Every book except ONSET: To Serve and Protect broke Amazon’s top 500. (TSP may still, but if so I’ll be stunned. With the first book in a new genre, my expectations are more conservative :)). Alien Arcana broke Amazon’s top 100, a first for me!
I’m not going back to accounting anytime soon folks. Thank you.
Looking forward now, my plans for next year are even busier. 2016 will see seven books. 2017 should see eight. My goal is to put out a book in each of my four series every six months. There may be some slippage as that is an extremely demanding goal for me, but that is my target.
For now, my plan is to remain all-in with Kindle Unlimited. KU has done very well for me financially and while I’d like to be less dependent on Amazon, I like the cash flow more.
The next cycle of books have titles. In order of release: ONSET: My Enemy’s Enemy, Duchess of Terra, Judgment of Mars and Rimward Stars. Titles for everything after those are still in flux, though I have least working titles. And codes for reference.
I look forward to 2017 being even better than 2016 and to continuing to write my stories and share them with you.
It really is a dream come true and I cannot thank you all enough for letting me do this!
Happy reading folks,
