Out of curiosity, I went back to the very first post on my blog – no don’t go looking; it’s nothing special! – and to my dismay I found that it was dated 12 March 2012. This means that Zen Scribbles is now 1 year and 1 week old. I can’t believe how quickly the time flies! Sadly I’m on a self-imposed chocolate ban, so no celebratory treats for me today. =[
If you had told me last year that I was going to keep up with this blog for a whole year, I would’ve laughed in your face. I’m terrible at committing to blogs, and this current one is actually the result of two other failed projects. That said, I’m really pleased I stuck around for so long. So many things happened; I met a lot of fellow writers and made new friendships, one of my posts got freshly pressed, I came across some awesome new reads and learned a few things along the way.
The reading process took longer than I anticipated, but that’s okay, because I’m pleased with my end product and, more importantly, I am now PUBLISHED! I had waited for this for so long, and I’m incredibly excited, albeit nervous, that my book is finally out there for everyone to read.
Puppet Parade is now available in paperback and e-book format. You can buy the paperback from Lulu here, and the e-book from Amazon here (Kindle). You can also find an epub version on the Lulu page. It’s a great book and I’m extremely proud of it… and I’m not biased in the slightest. 😉
If you do decide to read it, I’d appreciate it if you can leave a review for me on Goodreads. And if you like it, do feel free to share it and recommend it to your friends. Self-publishing is a difficult route, and word-of-mouth really helps a new author quite a lot.
Squee. Published. I’m published! This is so exciting. I don’t think the novelty of this will wear out anytime soon, haha.
