4 Years since I published my first book


Four years ago this month I published my first book, The Path of Destiny. What a life-time dream come true that was for me. I remember when the first paperback proof copy was delivered and I opened it up. I couldn't believe that I had actually written an entire book.

That first book (actually the first two) were written in some parts, revised, and edited over a 20+ years time frame. Then I finally got serious and did it. I published a book!

Now I just released my 16th book, with 2 more planned for this year.

It goes to show that no matter what your dreams are, you can achieve it. I have scraps of stories and books all the way back to the third grade. And I never gave up on the dream.

Now I'm still trying to make full-time income on it, and haven't been able to make enough to replace my corporate finance job yet, but it's definitely made some money, been fun, and opened my eyes to a lot of other great authors and books that I wouldn't have found without being part of some great author groups.

Now I will admit, I love coming up with the stories--young people fighting against insurmountable odds, lots of magic, dragons and other creatures, and good vs. evil, but I really don't like the tedious task of editing, or the sometime complex and time consuming marketing.

But all in all its been great! And I couldn't have done it without the support and encouragement of my wife, family, friends, and of course my wonderful readers (from age 8 to 80+).

Don't ever give up on what you want to do!
