Three years ago today my first book, The Lonely Hearts Club, was published. I really had no idea back then how much my life would change. My fourth book is coming out in March (click here to read an excerpt from Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality), I’m writing my fifth book, and will be celebrating my two year anniversary of being a full-time author in February. Never would I have believed any of those things would be possible. Ever.
I wake-up every morning grateful that I get to have the best job in the world. I know how fortunate I am and never take it for granted. I have no idea how long I’ll be able to write full-time (it’s not the most stable of jobs) so I realize what a gift every day is. None of this would be possible without you, dear reader. I’m always overwhelmed that people would not only read one of my books, but actually like it! Hearing from readers and getting to meet you is the best part of this job. I often get thanked by readers for writing a book, but I wouldn’t be able to write books unless there was an audience to write for (true, I’d still write, but I’m only published because people buy my books!).
So thank you for reading, thank you for retweeting, liking, blogging, etc. Thank you for letting this girl fulfill a dream that seemed insane only a few years ago. I’m aware that the only reason I get to do this is because of you. And I’ll always be grateful for that.
With much love and thanks, Elizabeth
