I am on cloud nine at the moment, courtesy of an email from my editor James, letting me know that this morning my latest book, The Highlander’s Maiden, made it into the top 100 historical romance books on Amazon.com.
Thank you to everyone who has bought it, and I hope you’re all enjoying it. I still have to pinch myself now and again to remind myself that I really have had stories published and they really are actually selling. I still find that hard to believe and watch with delight as I see my latest book’s rank rise on Amazon and elsewhere.
I get so much delight from my writing and I hope those who read my books get as much enjoyment out of my writing as I myself do.
Time for bed, early start tomorrow (6am-3pm shift, yuck!). I’m not quite sure I’ll be able to sleep, and the worst thing is I haven’t dared to share with my colleagues (who I have only worked with for 9 months) that I write erotic fiction, so I can’t share my delight with them tomorrow. Ex-colleagues, friends and family know and they are generally very proud of me, but I haven’t quite dared to let people I work with now know about my writing. I’m worried they’ll judge me by what I write. Sometimes I go into work (when I get good reviews, have a book published, have finished writing a book, etc) and I’m absolutely bursting with happiness but I can’t share it. Maybe one day soon!
