Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my first book, The Vessel, being officially published and made available for sale. It’s been a heck of a year. Since then, amongst other milestones, I set up this blog, have garnered over 500 followers thus far and have written and published my second book, False Awakening.
It’s an odd feeling, as it somehow simultaneously feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago that I saw my book listed on Amazon for the first time, but twelve months later, I still get as much of a warm glow when I look at my bookshelves and see my own name nestled in amongst some of my favourite authors.
Here’s to the next year and whatever adventures in writing it may bring. If you’d like to know more about The Vessel, here’s the synopsis and a brief visual quote to help set the scene:
Savaged by disease and riots, the world has descended into a state of chaos. Amidst the desperate remains of humanity, the American government has resorted to extreme measures to try and repopulate their now depleted country but one unwilling subject of their ruthless actions will not suffer in silence.
Escaping from a facility at the heart of their experiments, Eva Cole’s nightmare is far from over. Hunted at every turn, she must fight to survive so that she can expose the truth.
