Where did this year go? 2014 was the first year of my being a full time writer. I left my teaching job in December 2013 with one real belief: I was ready to be a full time writer, no matter what it brought.
So what did this year bring? Some pretty fantastic stuff! Here’s a look:
I released 3 novels (Give In To Me, Temptation, and Surrender), a novella (Ever After), and two box sets (The Heart of Stone Trilogy and From The Beginning Box Set). In addition to those, by the end of this year, I’d written another novel and a four part serial for release in 2015 (Possession and the SILK serial). This was definitely the year of the Heart of Stone series and the Club X series.
On top of all that, I hit the New York Times twice. Twice. I still can’t believe it sometimes. The first time was on my own with Give In To Me, and I’ll never forget that feeling the Wednesday night I found out I’d hit #9 on the New York Times ebook bestseller list and #13 on the combined ebook and paperback list. I still tear up when I think of that night. Thank you to all my wonderful readers for that!
Then in July, right after my birthday, I hit the New York Times bestseller list under my Gabrielle Bisset name with Blood Avenged (Sons of Navarus #1) in a box set. Twice in one year is pretty damn incredible. Add to that the entire Heart of Stone Trilogy Box Set hitting the USA Today bestseller list and it was a fantastic year!
I got to meet readers in Charlotte and Tampa at book signings, which was so much fun, and I plan to do a few signings in 2015 too.
My Heart of Stone series and my Sons of Navarus series made it to audiobook in 2014, and I’ll be looking into making more of my books available in audiobook in 2015.
It’s been a great year! Thanks for being there with me, and 2015 is shaping up to be incredible too. But changes are definitely coming. I’m not sure what’s going to happen with FB, but I hear putting links to any retailer will cause problems, so I’ll be linking to my website more in that case. Readers will be able to find anything they need here, including buy links to their favorite stores to find books. On my website you can also find what signings I’ll be at, a virtual signing so you can purchase signed paperbacks (it’s only in the US right now, but I’m working on international sales in 2015), and information on all my books, K.M. Scott and Gabrielle Bisset.
So take a look around–click on the links at the top of the page for a look at all the great stuff here and be sure to check back often since I’ll be adding more as the year goes on. And thank you for loving my characters, my stories, and me! It means the world to me. <3
There’s a lot to celebrate, so let’s do just that! Comment on this blog post with what you look forward to in the new year for a chance to win a signed paperback copy of any of my Heart of Stone or Club X books OR an audiobook of any of the Heart of Stone series books!
