I’ve always said writing is not a competition because people read more than one book.
I’ve realized with the release of November 9 that I absolutely AM in competition…with myself.
Every time I write a new book, I ask myself how I can make it different from my last one. BETTER than my last one. And I’m not going to lie, it gets harder and harder. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don’t. But I always try.
I was worried with the release of November 9 because the book means so much to me that I wanted it to mean something to the readers, too. And so far, it’s had the best opening week reviews and unbelievable feedback. Not to mention it hit the New York Times print list, ebook list AND combined list. It’s the first time I’ve hit all three lists the first week. And I can’t thank you guys enough for continuing to support me with each new release.
I’m taking a little vacation over Thanksgiving, but come December 1st, I’ll be diving in to my newest book, It Ends With Us.
I’m excited to start writing it, but at the same time it gets more and more stressful trying to top my last release. And you guys have made November 9 a hard one to top. But I’ll do my best.
