Kari's Kave: A Time for Reflection...
Anyway, I was sitting here thinking about how far I've come. So many times we doubt ourselves and worry if we can write another book, or even a first book, or finish whatever goal it is that we set for ourselves. But then when we sit back and really reflect on all we've done, we see we've really accomplished quite a bit.
In my case, I was worrying about being able to write another book, being able to have it do as well, being able to self publish, being able to write in other genres, etc. There's so much I want to do, that I sometimes doubt if I'll be able to do any of it. But then when I reflected on all that I have accomplished, I realized I've done quite a bit.
Tempest (I can't find the full cover) became a national bestseller and was nominated for an RT and an Agatha.
Book two, Corpse in the Crystal Ball, has already received a great 4 star review from RT, so I have really high hopes it will do as well, if not better, than book one.
Love my covers by the way :-) Berkley rocks at that!
Book three, Trouble in the Tarot is written, but doesn't have a cover yet. Can't wait to hear what my editor thinks of it. I had fun :-)
On top of that, I have my teen superhero series. My first Digital Diva: Talk to the Hand, was nominated for a Golden Duck Award and is now available on both the Kindle and the Nook, soon to be in print as well.
Not to mention, I'm still waiting to hear if the Family Channel wants to pick this up as a TV series. Now THAT would be amazing.
So when I finish that, I will have three teen books written and published.
So that makes three finished romances as well.
3 mysteries, 3 teen books, and 3 romances. At the end of the day, I guess I have accomplished quite a bit. I am proud of the books I have written, and I love writing in several genres. It keeps life fun and interesting and keeps me from getting bored :-) We live in such new and exciting times, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it all. So quit doubting yourself and look at all you've accomplished already. And all you plan to accomplish. And all the wonderful and exciting new adventures waiting for you right around the corner.
Good Luck! See you all after Malice where you can expect a full report next Wednesday!
PS I LOVE my self pubblished covers as well!!!!
