Initially it felt great – the manuscript that took over 18 months to develop has finally hit the Amazon store! Euphoria followed as the book galloped up the Espionage charts, where it settled into the number two position.
With thousands of people now reading my work, what, possibly, could I have to complain about?
Marketing aside, the completion of the project has left a huge void. Where to channel excess creativity to? What if I have a spare 30 minutes? What if I have a great plot concept?
In addition to that, there’s a lingering uneasiness around reviews. Initially these seem positive (several ***** reviews is a pleasing start) – but I accept that not all books are to every reader’s tastes.
I need something to take my mind off it; nothing for it but a sequel!
