To Love A Selkie is my first novel - but it isn't just the first novel I've taken the initiative to publish. It truly is my first novel.
It's the first time I ever wrote anything from beginning to end, and also the first time I touched on the fantasy element that seems so popular these days. I'm rather proud of it, as it was truly a challenge to my skill as a writer, and finishing it was literally a childhood dream come true.
However, as I'm now writing my second novel, I can look back at Selkie and see a lot of growth in my writing style already. Even I like the second book much better - and for those who are interested, I expect to release this second book sometime in February, and it's the first of what I expect to be a really fun romantic series!
In the meantime, I'm in the midst of my introduction to the public review process, and even though it's hard on the ego, I already love it. I've gotten a little insight into what other people see when they read my work, and how that insight differs from what I can see in my mind while I'm writing.

I'd like to just take the time right now to thank everyone who has purchased and downloaded my book, with special thanks to anyone who takes the time to leave a review. Thank you so much - to those who stroked my ego, and to those who thickened my skin! All of you are a great help to me as an indie author, and I greatly appreciate the time you spent to leave your feedback!
