Diary of a Debut Author: Winnemucca, a small-town fairy tale, Bookiversary & Giveaway!

A year ago today Winnemucca, a small-town fairy tale, was published. I can’t tell you what a thrilling year it’s been. Of all my books, Winnemucca is the best seller so far. Like my other novels, Winnemucca has sold all over the world and has even won an award for its trailer. I’ve gotten emails from readers from as far afield as Romania, The Philippines, Australia, and Russia. I’ve gotten to join some amazing groups of authors too including The Paranormal Plumes Society, The Pacific Northwest YA Authors, The Central Coast Writers Association, and The YA Indie Carnival. And because of these great authors, I’ve given my first presentations at libraries & schools, done book signings and even attended my first book festivals as an author, I blogged a little bit about these experiences here in my diary of a debut author posts. I’ve visited new places — Savannah, GA; Portland, OR; and Deltona, FL. My work has been reviewed by book bloggers, readers and publications. The book bloggers I’ve gotten to know have been so welcoming and encouraging of indie authors and I feel blessed to have met them. And I’ve had the pleasure of reading some amazing novels this year. Novels I never would have known about if I hadn’t gotten into the Indie world. It’s all been so incredibly inspiring. I learned about blog tours and swag and how to format paperbacks. I had so much to learn! But the great groups of authors I’ve gotten to know have helped me put all the pieces together and get over the bumps along the way.
