But trust me, I had my doubts about whether this formula would work. At the end of the day, I knew I had written the story that was on my heart. So I just let 'er rip and hoped for the best.
Well, recently I found this very cool site (Authl.it) that provides you with a link to your Kindle book in every region in which it's sold. My link is http://authl.it/bk. Every now and again, I check to see where in the world The Seven Year Itch is selling. We authors can't help ourselves. Every little boost to our ego counts. I was pretty surprised to see that it has sold in Canada, the UK, France, and Germany, in addition to the United States.
How cool is that?
But then TODAY, I check out the Amazon UK page and find this...
5.0 out of 5 stars The seven Year Itch 29 May 2013
By Mrs Ann Vellinga
Very good read, kept you thinking all the time. Looking forward to the next book. I hope S D Skye has written more and they are on Kindle.
There is an earlier review (4 stars) but that was part of my virtual book tour and based the unrevised version of the book.
This one is just a random reader leaving a review!
After doing my cartwheel (no easy feat, mind you), I couldn't help but feel grateful that I've been able to reach folks around the world. Twelve of them maybe, but folks nonetheless. (I haven't looked at the numbers.) Sometimes when you're in the headspace where you wonder if you're spinning your wheels or if you should've done something differently, a little thing happens that helps you to know that you're going in the right direction.
Things will be okay if, in the words of Dory (Finding Nemo), you "Just keep swimming."
So, hunkered down more than ever with Book 2. It's coming in August--and better than Book 1 (if I do say so myself). The ending will leave you saying, "WHOA! Didn't see that coming!" Yet, you'll know it was supposed to happen. And you'll be SO ready for Book 3!
