5-years ago today, I published No Fraternizing – part 1 to a series I had no plans of making a series to begin with. I’d written the stories years before, after I’d gone to the barbershop with my boyfriend (who is now my husband) and I became fascinated with the barbershop environment. My mind has always focused on the what ifs of situations, and my visit to that barbershop inspired the storyline for No Fraternizing. I wrote the story by hand, one of the last stories I’ve ever written by hand, and the story became my first self-published story.
2-years ago today I released my first anthology, Forbidden: An Anthology. It was an idea I had a few years prior, wanting to create an anthology of stories that followed a common theme. The goal was to create a book of short stories that were all different from the other but still the same, if that makes sense.
It seems I got a lot of love for August 1st lol. I have three books to celebrate bookversaries! When I was working on my calendar last month and realized that I released not one but three books on the same date just years apart, I had to laugh. They Call Me Mello’s release was intentional. I liked the mirror effect of the dates 8/1/18. But NF2 and NF3 were purely coincidental… or was it? I find it cosmic that NF2, the book where Mello first makes an appearance was released on 8/1 like his book. I didn’t even plan that. Anyway, Happy Birthday book babies! They grow so fast! Have you read any of them?
