On to the topic of the day. We're doing a theme week here in the round pen and Liz started the ball rolling yesterday with the question: What was one defining moment in your career as a writer. Fun interesting question to consider and I've thought about it off and on all day as I've worked and played.
I think my most recent defining moment is indubitably when ONCE MORE FROM THE TOP made the #2 spot on the USA Today Indie Authors Best Sellers list last month--it's not a huge thing, but it felt like it gave me legitimacy as an author somehow. My sales numbers were high enough that I hit a list--I hit several last month actually, including the Amazon Top 100 Paid Best Sellers and the iBooks Top 100 Paid Best Sellers. I realize that selling enough books to make a list may not be what defines me as a writer, but it sure makes me feel like there's a chance the world might see me as a real author and that's kind of a defining moment.
In other news, SAVING SARAH is selling well and has gotten some nice reviews, which is always a good thing. I'm working a lot and writing on the new series--also good things.
It's going to be a great week because I get to have lunch with Liz! It's been too long since our last one and man, I'm in Lizzie withdrawal! I have my list started, so I'm ready!
Hope you'll share a defining moment with us this week--we'd love to hear about yours, whether you are a writer or not. Defining moments happen in everyone's life. Tell us about yours and then go out and make it great Tuesday!
