This is going to be so weird, but for the longest time I have dreamed of being a published author. I have been working on a book series, The Sylvia Chronicles, since high school. Well, I was just informed that my first book in the series, Sylvia: The Last Ranger, is officially published. Now, while I don't know whether to jump for joy or throw up my guts...I have to admit I'm excited. I know that this first one is not what it could be...I have certainly spent a lot of sleepless nights over it. My indecision to publish would have killed me in the end had a friend of mine (to remain nameless) not encouraged me. They said, "No matter how many nights you spend thinking over this and trying to perfect it, it won't change the mind of your readers. You will either spend forever worrying over what people will think of you, or you can publish for the sake of yourself." So, I can happily announce that my book is now available for purchase. Here: I'm giving Iwakuans a nice 15% off when you follow this link...and I'm very proud to say that I already have two more books lined up to be finished and published within the year. *crosses fingers* Please stop by, let me know what you think, and please....don't be too rough on me. I've been hard enough on myself about this whole thing.
