A Writer’s Life: People actually like it

Hello my dear blogger community,

It’s been a while since I sat down to write a blog post… what is wrong with me!? Well, it’s been an incredibly busy and stressful time for me lately. Fun too, don’t get me wrong! But I’ve been constantly on social media, working on promoting my debut YA fantasy novel Relic before it’s release on 12th September.

On top of that, my work at Booktopia has been insanely busy (so many authors coming in, which is the best!) and I’m sad to say I’ve been in two car accidents in two weeks… neither were my fault thankfully but one car was written off because it was such a bad accident! Luckily we all walked away.

Needless to say… everything happens at once, does it not?!

Relic is book one in The Relic Trilogy

Now onto the fun stuff! With just under two weeks to go until Relic is here, reviews, interviews and Q&As are heading out into the world left, right and centre!

What I’m finding hard to believe is that… people actually like my novel!!!

I dunno, little man, I dunno…

Just this afternoon someone left a 5 star rating for Relic on Goodreads saying “Holy shit. I’m obsessed. Review to come.”

Honestly that’s the only review I ever need! THIS is why I became an author people! Well, it’s one of the reasons. I write because I love it but I also write because I want to bring great stories to readers and have them love what I write.

You know that feeling you get when you read an incredible book and you come away going “Holy shit. I’m obsessed.”? Well, that is my goal! To make other people feel that way.

As I said, there are interviews and Q&As out in the world now, which is making it feel so real. So far we’ve got ones on The AU Review, Booktopia, Writer’s Edit, Igniting Pages blog, The Story Collector Blog, Read and Wander blog, The Clever Reader, with many more to come!

Relic is on Booktopia!
And already it’s a bestseller! Wooooowza. Australian and NZ readers can pre-order a SIGNED copy on Booktopia here. For my international readers, Relic will be available on 12th September to order on Amazon in eBook and paperback.

What’s next?
The release of Relic, of course! As soon as that’s out in the world, I will be starting on the first round of edits for book two in The Relic Trilogy. I’m so excited to get going on that and really give it my all!

That’s all for now! I will just leave this little bit of inspiration here for all you aspiring authors out there:
