I was glancing through my old blog posts for InspyRomance.com when I noticed I had written my very first post back in October 2017. That means I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of blogging here for a year now. Wow, time sure flies! I’ve truly enjoyed the community I’ve found with both the authors and readers of this site. I gotta say, our readers (that’s you!) are some of the most supportive and interactive people out there in cyberspace. It’s always a joy to read your comments and to see familiar names pop up every month.
The one thing I’ve learned from my indie author journey is the importance of having friends, especially those with the same faith. Writing is such a solitary activity (if you don’t count the voices I hear in my head, haha). Other than my family, the only people I consistently talk to every day are the faces I see online. I’m so thankful social media gives me the chance to connect with friends all over the world, from the comfort of my home. How neat is that?
Over this past year, I’ve written five books and revamped/rereleased three, and I have three more novelettes coming out before the end of the year (I write both Christian and sweet/clean romance). I’m currently working on the third book in my Spark Brothers series now, which you all have been so supportive with. As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen, so it helps to know there are people on the other side of it running the race with me. You play such an important role in my author journey, which is why I want to say a big thank you and celebrate my one year anniversary with you today!
So, pull up a chair (or maybe a couch), and pass around some drinks and desserts. I brought my favorite snacks, white chocolate chip macadamia cookies and boba tea, to share. There’s also plates of brownies and cheesecake, bite-sized ones, so you can easily pop them into your mouth. And last, but not least, take a comfy blanket and pillow before we start our reading party. Because what’s more celebratory than sitting back with a good book and some yummy treats? I bet all the introverts out there are rejoicing with me right now. ;)
Tell me, what do you do for your special occasions, whether it be an anniversary, birthday or a special milestone? This coming weekend also happens to be my hubby’s and my birthdays (they’re three days apart), so I’d love to get some ideas on things we can do to celebrate. I can’t wait to read your answers!
Giveaway: I’d like to give away a digital copy of a book from my backlist (boxed sets excluded). Two winners will be randomly chosen from the comments below. The giveaway will remain open until midnight on Wednesday, October 31st.
