Hi all! I finally published my debut novel The Inheritance on Saturday. It was my official launch day and what an exciting time it’s been. I’ve been able to connect with friends and family on Facebook, many of whom I don’t see regularly, as well as with friends and many more writers who I don’t know on Twitter, promoting my book as I go.
I’ve seen my sales take off and my ranking on Amazon increase very quickly which is wonderful! Thank you to all who’ve helped and supported me at this crucial time of releasing my novel into the big wide world.
Today my blog tour continues. I’m on a different blog every day this week. Please see here for details. Today I’m doing a guest post on how I came to publish The Inheritance on the lovely Joanne Phillips‘s blog. In it I talk about the obstacles I had to overcome on my path to publication as well as who and what helped me to get to this point. Please do take a look.
Joanne is the author of Can’t Live Without, The Family Trap and has recently published her latest book, which she describes as a ‘cosy mystery’, called Murder at the Maples, the first in a new series with her character Flora Lively.
Joanne has created a truly wonderful blog, packed with helpful information and advice about the world of self-publishing, as well as honest accounts of her own experiences of writing and coming to publication. Her blog is well worth a visit.
So see you over there!
