Another Year Almost Over ...
2022 has been a good year for my writing and publishing. For one, I released The Corpse Ritual, the third book in my urban fantasy series, in August. It made my day when a reader told me “it’s the best” yet of The Geomancer’s Apprentice books.
Another highlight: I reached over 120,000 page reads on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited this year after I loaded the entire series onto the service in May.
That translates to around 280 books, not taking into account my ebook and print sales. Thank you so much, dear readers, for your interest in my series. The numbers aren’t a lot for some writers, but amazing to this one. When I released my debut novel in February 2021, it was the fulfillment of a long-cherished dream to write fiction. I can’t believe I’m actually living the dream today.
So what’s the plan for 2023?
I’d like to release two more books in the series, the fourth and the fifth—and final—installments. Yes, Joe and Junie’s journey comes to an end, or at least this particular story arc. Could I add on to the series at a later date? We’ll see.
I’d also like to revamp my newsletter this year, if possible, and get a handle on advertising. As always, I’m striving to refine my process so I can be a more efficient writer.
After 2023, I’d like to start a new series. I have one in mind, featuring a character from The Geomancer’s Apprentice universe, that's been percolating in my head. Stay tuned.
That’s it, for some brief thoughts as this year draws to a close.
Happy New Year everyone. Onward and upward.
