Not only is it Valentine's Day, but today also marks the 12th anniversary of the release of Maiden Flight - the first book I ever had published. So today is sort of my birthday as an author.
When the book first came out, it looked quite different. Covers were different back then and I had some problems with people picking up the book in the WRONG section of the bookstore. (Sometimes they shelved my dragon books in sci fi or fantasy, which was okay, but the idea that kids might run into them in those sections bothered me a lot.)
In 2012-13 or so, the publisher re-issued them all with new covers and I liked them so much that when the publisher went out of business this time last year, I purchased the covers to use on the new editions. The orangey cover at left is the current cover and has been since the re-issue in 2012-13-ish. The cover at right is the original and I don't think it really says "fantasy menage" does it? LOL
Thank you all for believing in and supporting my work. I don't think I would have lasted twelve years as an author without each and every one of you. <3
Here's to twelve more! And hopefully a lot more after that! I can't imagine not writing now and I hope I can continue to do this job that I really love long into the future.
Don't forget, Forever Valentine is still on sale for 99c, in case you've never read it before. The sale ends tomorrow, so get it while it's hot!
