It's Here!


Happy New Year! I hope this year brings peace and prosperity to us all. I have a special reason to celebrate this year as today is the official release date of my first fantasy novel, The Keepers of Sulbreth, Book#1 of The Futhark Chronicles.

I've anticipated this day for so long I can't believe it finally arrived. I know many who ordered my book from an online store like Amazon have already received their copies. A few emailed me and one friend and two relatives called on the phone to express their delight in my book. Of course, they would so it's with quite some nervousness I wait to see how this novel actually sells.

I've been warned not to watch those numbers on Amazon but it's so tempting to do so. One I have to be thrilled about is for the second time, Amazon posted the little warning they only had a few left in stock and were ordering more. I hope it doesn't mean they only had five in stock to begin with! LOL

The excellent reviews thrilled me but I can't wait to hear from a reader other than friend or family. I've kept the ones I received from my romance novels in a special folder and hope I can add a few more.

So happy New Year and may we all enjoy moments of peace to read and keep our jobs so we have the money to purchase books, lots of books.

Congrats on your release, Susan! And on your wonderful reviews. Let me know if you're doing any sort of blog tour - I'd be happy to host you.
Wishing you many sales in 2010! What a great way to start the year.

Thank you, Cate. I'll be working on setting up a tour.
Hope 2010 is good to both our sales.
