Happy 2015!

What a crazy and amazing year 2014 was. It was one year ago, December 31, 2013,  that my editor finally declared that The Gatekeeper's Son was ready to move onto line editing. The book was actually finished! Okay, not really. After the line edit came the copy edit, and proofreading, and interior and exterior design, and more proofreading, formatting, marketing campaign startup. We finally launched the novel, in paperback and ebook, on October 1st, 2014! Sales have been far better than I expected. The novel has sold 1600 copies to date (that's an average of 15 books a day). I know the numbers aren't significant in the publishing world but considering this is a first novel by an unknown author, published by a small publisher, I'm pretty darn pleased! Thanks to everyone who's written reviews and helped spread the word about The Gatekeeper's Son. 2015 is going to be a big year!
