A bit of non gaming news – been some time since I’ve had any but it does happen from time to time. Yesterday I released my first book, ‘Quiet Introspection‘ on amazon for kindle. There’s a physical version of the book that should be available (also on amazon) later today / tomorrow. As for what the book is about:
A collection of poetry that spans from 1995 to 2000 – most of it angst ridden with the typical trials and tribulations of a teenager growing up. First love, first heartbreak, and trying to come to the eventual realization that life does go on and we are stronger for our experiences.
Of course I know that means it won’t be everyone’s ideal book, but it’s pretty important to me. It is the first book I’ve managed to get to this stage and also won’t be the last. I have another book in the works that should be out for sale later this year or early next year (we’ll have to see, writing can be a fickle creature some times) that is part of the fantasy genre, and I hope people will be excited to read it. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember but this is the first time I’ve ever really felt like an author. Maybe that’s a bit silly, after all I’m pretty much a nobody who simply enjoys writing and is looking for some sort of audience to share her works with. I’m still pretty proud.
You can find the book listed on Goodreads as well. If poetry happens to be your thing, and you purchase a copy of the book I would love if you took the time to write a review at either place. If you’re an amazon prime member you can borrow the book from the lending library free of charge.
A huge thank you to everyone who has ever supported me in my desire to write over the years. I’m hoping that this is just the beginning.
