Happy New Year and welcome back to Ink Dots.
It’s been a crazy summer for me, with my book launch, (see Facebook author page for all the pics) beach trips to Phillip Island, a family Christmas at home, and a breathtaking stop in Fiji to soak up the sun and recharge my author batteries.
December and January have certainly delivered above and beyond anything I expected as a debut author. On December 18th I took receipt of the first print run of Carry Me Home and within 3 weeks, you wonderful people had bought Every. Single. Copy.
Pinch me, hard!
I did not anticipate I’d SELL OUT so soon and I’m still giddy to have shared the story with so many readers.
To those who bought those first print copies… I offer my heartfelt THANKS!!!
It’s because of loyal readers like you I could order the second print run and look into the face of 2016 with great anticipation.
I’ll be disappearing into my library to work on book two in the Blue Wren Shallows series this month. But before I do…I want to honour those who’ve taken the time to message me their reader feedback.
You really know how to bless an author in the early days of her writing career. I could not have wished or dared for more. But that’s exactly what you returned to me! Much more than my giddy heart could have imagined.
You might recognise the part you played in my delight in the following photos. Bless you for sending them to me and posting them on social media. If only every author had such faithful readers. You guys are the best.
Now, take your bow!
(And if I’ve missed your pic… message me and it will be my pleasure to add it ASAP)
***** For my Australian AND international readers… To celebrate the second print run of Carry Me Home, I’m offering all new mailing lists subscribers the chance to win one of two autographed copies.
