A person can write alone. When they are wearing the Writer hat, it is a lonely business. However, once those words leave the person, they become more…belong to many more people. And once a story has gone through the layers of Beta and Editing, the person has to set aside the Writer hat and put on the Author hat.
But keep in mind, that Author hat is not of their making. Everyone contributes to it. Every person who purchased the story has woven a stitch into that hat. Every review, every edit and every suggestion made by a Beta is a part of that hat.
And sometimes, that hat reaches such great heights… but not just because of the person wearing it but because of the people who CREATED it.
Sinner’s Gin hit number 1 today on Amazon’s GLBT fiction charts. To be specific…
• #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Gay & Lesbian
• #1 in Books > Gay & Lesbian > Literature & Fiction > Fiction > Gay
• #2 in Books > Gay & Lesbian > Literature & Fiction > Fiction > Romance
So for everyone of you here… I toss the Author hat in the air and say Wooooooot. You have flown me…and Sinner’s Gin… much higher than I’d ever thought it would go.
Thanks seems so small a word. But it’s all I’ve got.
So Thank You. Very Much.
