It’s my 5-Year Indieversary!

On March 26 of 2016, I published my first Indie piece. It’s a superhero short story called “Second Sight.” 

In college, I was working on several comic book projects, and even tried my hand at drawing them. In the end, sequential-art storytelling just wasn’t for me. It takes me too long to write the story, draw everything, ink it, color it, etc. I decided sticking with prose was the best option for me to get out as many stories as I can (and there are so many of them swimming around in my head!). 

Back in 2016, I knew starting another series probably wasn’t the best idea, since at the time I was publishing two series with a traditional publishing house. But I also really wanted to dive into the Indie world. So, I wrote this little piece as an experiment. And readers loved it!

It’s my Indieversary!

Okay, it was actually on Sunday, but close enough! I published my very first Indie title, a short story called “Second Sight”, a year ago on March 26 😀 I’m going to have a surprise for you at the bottom of this post, so keep reading!

Originally, “Second Sight” had a comic book cover by the talented Matthew Blake to capture the superhero angle of the story. At it’s heart, though, “Second Sight” is a romance (like everything I write <3 ), so I recently gave it a new cover, which I adore.

The Once and Future Publisher

I have fantastic news this week! Earlier this year, my publisher, Samhain Publishing, announced that they would have to close down (that was sad news—the fantastic new news is in the next sentence 🙂 ). During the process of winding down, they found a path that leads to them staying open!

This means that my current series with them, The Summer Park Psychics and The Department of Homeworld Securitywill have their lovely home with Samhain for a long time to come. Look at all these beautiful covers…

So Much Fun

Cute Spaceship IconI’ve been loving the Indie experience. I’ve learned so many new things, gained new experiences, and delved deeper into this whole wonderful world of self-publishing. It’s a lot of work, but so much fun!

Second Sight is doing great! I love all the feedback I’m getting about it. I’m definitely giving serious thought to continuing this story in series. Right now, though, I’m already looking forward to the next Indie launch—the full length Scifi Romance coming this summer! I’m aiming for June, and I think I can do it 😀

It’s been a great ride so far. On to the next adventure!
