Two and a half years ago (Super Bowl weekend 2010), at the same time that I decided to get serious about my writing, a small seed of an idea took root. No matter how much I tried to shake it loose or dig it up, it simply would not go away. So, off to the computer I went to see what words would come forth.
A little over 69,000 words sprang forth and decorated my world like a tree full of cherry blossoms. After spending two months completing that first draft and another year polishing up that first draft, I then spent the next several months afterwards querying my ass off to agents and publishers.
Initial success came on February 28, 2012 in the form of a contract from Solstice Publishing.
Complete success came on October 30, 2012 in the form of the commercial debut of my adult fantasy novel.

Once again, I am forever and enternally grateful to Solstice Publishing for taking the chance on a newbie writer, and no matter what the future may hold or bring, I will always cherish this initial fulfillment of my dream.
Update (11/2/12): It is now live on Amazon and it has already gathered its first 5 star review.
