As I edge closer to my debut novel being published, I still find it difficult to believe it will soon be available for anyone to read. Actually, I am still surprised that I wrote a book – let alone three!
Some days I worry that the day will never come or that no one will read my book, but I am trying to not let self-doubt cloud something that I am very proud of. So, despite being very nervous about pressing ‘upload’, I would be lying if I said I don’t want people to read The Minority Rule. In fact, I really, really want people to read it and hopefully find escapism whilst also being challenged about how we look at each other, nature, and our world as a whole.
The complete writing process has been eye opening for me and I know I still have a lot more to learn. Editing draft upon draft, tweaking sentences, stressing over punctuation, and highlighting yet another word that I have misspelt has been a steep, but mostly enjoyable process. I am so thankful to those who have helped me over the last two years – their time and patience have been invaluable and as a result I now have three finished manuscripts, a cover for book one (with plans for the other two), and an entirely new manuscript which I'm currently working on.
Hopefully later week I will be excitedly declaring my debut release date, after which time I will anxiously await feedback from you, the dear reader. If you can, please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads (or both if you’re feeling super supportive!). Reviews – good or bad, but fingers crossed for good! – really drive sales and encourage more readers, especially for independent authors like myself. I am not too proud to beg (quietly!).
