First Post of 2021

I haven’t posted in a while partly because of the holidays and partly because I’ve been scurrying around checking off things on my “to do” list.  Some of that was for Christmas and some was work promoting my books.   I had hoped that as December ended, I’d see War Party pass one thousand sales (I know that’s not much if you’re on the NYT best seller list but a milestone for me nonetheless) and instead came up 1 book short at 999.  I’m sure sometime in 2021 that mark will be passed but it was a little deflating not to hit a goal that was so close.  

I also thought I had a chance to see each and every one of my books (not including the 3 pack of short stories) have at least one sale.  That would have been something unique because I have a couple of books that almost never sell.  But alas, that didn’t happen either.  It was nice to see the 2 books that usually don’t sell have sales, but one of my most popular books had zero, so, almost but no cigar.  

I am looking forward to 2021 and hope that new goals will appear and be reached.  I don’t do New Year’s resolutions, but have set as my only goal for 2021 to see Shepherds 2 (I don’t have a title yet – that’s my working title) gets published.  After that, I’m hoping for more sales, more positive reviews, and more readers clamoring for sequels and more books.

Here’s hoping 2021 (as the Who recorded on their album Tommy “I think 21 is going to be a good year”) will be a good year for us all and that everyone who is looking for a great book to read will find it.  Maybe once in a while it’ll be one of mine.
