Word of warning: the excitement contained in today's blog post will not be understood by anyone who doesn't have a dream and doesn't have a clue about the changing face of the publishing industry.
So what happened...?
I received my first ever Royalty statement yesterday!!! The content doesn't matter. What does matter is the fact I managed to sell any books at all considering the rather high price point for a paperback - and the fact that millions of people every day all around the world are self publishing their books at a fraction of my price. It's not a mega amount and certainly not enough to retire on or even buy a week's worth of groceries with, but it's a start and I am very very happy.
If you have had a similar experience recently, don't let anybody take that moment of triumph (however small) away from you :)
On another note, tomorrow I will mostly be hungover with pre birthday drinkies taking place tonight... but on Sunday I shall be sharing my 29 most memorable travel experiences to celebrate my 29th year. Check back with me then ;)
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
