…on the first month of The Making of Gabriel Davenport’s entry into the big, wide world of readers, I have learned many things. One is that I am supremely grateful for every ounce of support I have received from fellow writers and readers. They have been the ones to champion my story, shouting it out in blog posts, and retweets and Instagram feeds. Without their help I think that I’d be watching the tumbleweed meandering across my sales. Which leads me to the next point – people who have bought/downloaded my book, willing to give a debut author a try when there are thousands of huge names out there all clamouring for attention and with advertising budgets to boost. My reviews have just started to come in and I am thrilled. You *hope* that people are going to like your story, after you’ve sweated blood over it for so long, and when the comments literally make your heart glow, every page obsessed over is worth it.
A huge thank you if you read this and you are one of those people (or are thinking of being one of those people ;))
The last thing I have learned is that I am very, very bad at blogging on a regular basis…I will try to get better, call me on it if I fail!
