It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? And I like these types of things. And this one is just different enough to the others I’ve done… 🙂 So, the first book I wrote (and incidentally published) was The Line. It will be 10 years old next year (!), and it still feels like I just started. Sure, it’s not the most amazing writing, and yes, there is a bit of a self-insert going on, but The Line showed me what I was capable of — that I could finish a novel. I tried to have it traditionally published, then decided to go on my own.
With The Line, I had so much motivation — there wasn’t anything I wouldn’t do for that book. Honestly, I wish I could have that level of motivation for my most recent releases. Nearly 10 years later, I know the cover needs a tune up (it’s on my to do list with the rest of the series). Because of technology and also how a marching season is now divided, it’s dated, but it will always hold a special place in my heart.
