There are a lot of different reasons I hear from people when they answer why they became a writer. Money often comes up. Occasionally someone says fame. Or they would say it’s in their blood.
I don’t know about any of that.
When I started writing, it wasn’t for fame or money. I had a story in my head which I had to get out. When my story was finished, I knew I wasn’t done. There was so much more to the story than just one book. I had a series on my hands. One I couldn’t wait to share with the world.
My little sci-fi romance story recently ranked as high as #23 on Amazon in its genre. I never would’ve guessed Mirror Image would get the response it has. I’ve started to plan the party for the second in the series, Mirror Shattered, to launch on August 15th. And yesterday I found something which really blew my mind. CNN featured an article on me and my sweet book. Check it out here http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1156026
I never thought I would garner attention like this. And the entire experience has been surreal to say the least. I never wrote for fame or money. Always said if anything were to happen, that would be icing on the cake. All of that is still true. I’m just happy people are reading Mirror Image and will hopefully follow along with Mack, Maddie, and the others as the adventures continue.
I’ve heard someone say if you wake up in the morning and you want to write, then you’re a writer. In my case, that’s true. My heart lies upon the pages. Regardless how you chose to read, I’m really glad you did. 🙂 If you haven’t yet, Barnes and Noble has the paperback on sale! eBook is also in the link: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/mirror-image-kg-stutts/1119689102?ean=9781633100022
My advice for any aspiring author: write every day. If this is something you are truly passionate about, find the time. Write because this is something you love. Everything else will follow.
