The month flew by with me doing promotions, watching my Amazon rankings go up and down (what a rollercoaster ride that is), doing Facebook takeovers, chatting with readers, reading reviews: good and bad.
It's been a humbling experience to read that my book touched people in a positive way (Literary Apothecary's review post will forever hold a special place in my heart as one of the most insightful reviews of The Corner Office: http://bit.ly/2gVk3kR), amazing bloggers who helped share my crazy promotions as I was (and still am) trying to find my way in the promotional world. There's been readers who complained that my cover is misleading of what the book is about (expecting a secretary romance only to find it's about a powerful woman in charge of her own destiny). But for every negative review, there's been dozens of positive ones, and those are the ones that I keep reading to remind myself why what I do matters.
I dedicated my book to all women who continue to inspire me, women who are passionate about something, whatever it is, and pursue their dreams.
My dream has always been to see my books in print, and I have achieved it.
I have a few books in progress, including The Corner Office prequel.
Will they do well? Who knows. Quite frankly, I don't care. Writing novels is my passion, and nothing can stop me.
