Yup I am more than excited right now. The Traveler went live on Amazon yesterday and this morning I work up to see it as #65 on the Fantasy>Epic category. Love how this is moving. With any luck people will be intrigued by a seeing a new name on the top hot 100 list.
This has sparked me desire to write more. Sometimes after releasing a title an author can feel depressed. First it is handing off your baby, the ting you have nurtured and worked on for a long time to an uncaring world. Much like parenting writing is a very personal thing. These stories are the children of our minds after all. While I am pretty good about my short stories, a novel is different. It takes longer to write, longer to edit and it can be scary to let go.
I have mostly picked a tough field to write in. Fantasy has had a resurgence thanks to the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Hobbit movies. Writers like George RR Martin have a lock on the top of the charts but a new writer can hope to find a place on the readers ebooks or book shelves.
