Twenty years ago I sat down to write a book and I failed miserably. Over the years I secretly thought about several different stories and how I would go about writing them but I never had the courage. Almost a year ago I sat down to create the story that I knew I had to get out of my head and on to the computer screen.
Today my dreams have become a reality.
I decided to release Isle of Dawn, The Skye Trilogy, and Scrumptious Skye Confections a few weeks early. To be honest, it’s been done for over a week now but I was still hesitant. I wanted to hold on to them a little bit longer. In a way, I guess, I wanted to keep this book to myself as long as possible.
Isle of Dawn is so much more to me than book three of my trilogy. It’s a culmination of my dreams, my goals, long nights and a sense of accomplishment that I have never felt before in any thing I have ever done besides becoming a mother. This is the end of my characters journey but in reality is just the beginning for me. I don’t want to say goodbye and I have finally come to the realization that I don’t have to bid farewell to the characters I have come to know and love.
To be able to publish my books is not only a way for me to reach other readers that hopefully are like me but it is also a way for me to preserve my thoughts and my writing for me to enjoy. I can’t tell you the thrill I get seeing my name on a book cover and I hope I never become jaded enough to dismiss those butterflies that are floating in my stomach.
This project was a long time in the making and today I realized that it wasn’t so much my writing that was the project but myself as an individual.
I am a published author of a trilogy and a cookbook.
Yeah, this past year really just happened… Holy Moley!
I hope my readers enjoy the conclusion with Isle of Dawn and I really hope they love the cookbook because that was a lot of fun to write!
