Spring. A time of renewal and new beginnings. Growth and nurturing. Learning and hard work.
As this blog approaches it’s first official anniversary on 5 July 2016, I’m of a sentimental state of mind.
Thanks to you, my readers, it’s been a fortunate year gone by. You’ve followed me as I’ve moved house, learned about the indie publishing industry, shared what I know about the traditional publishing industry, published two well-reviewed books, grew my blog audience exponentially, exercised my craft as a writer of fiction and in my series of creative writing advice. You’ve been among the many new and wonderful friends I’ve made on these Adventures in Indie Publishing. I’m honored and humbled by the praise and respect I’ve received for my work.
But, as Bilbo Baggins might say,
I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve….
I’m not sure, but I think the grammatical math works out to a compliment. If not, please take it for one anyway.
I’ve prepared a brief 10-question reader survey via SurveyMonkey, to help me prepare for my upcoming year’s planning. What kind of content do you like? What should I write more about? Fan of Fantasy Fiction? Writer of Creative Fiction? Struggling Novelist? Wannabe Publishing Maven?
From now to 5 July 2016, please help me know you as a reader better, so that I can continue to improve my craft and your experience and enjoyment of it.
Thanks for the time, I deeply appreciate the opportunity to bring my work to you, and to hear your opinion.
Thanks again for your time.
