It’s official, I’m a published author of the TEACH ME TRILOGY! Well, self-published, but that’s good enough for me. I feel like I’ve waited an eternity to write that and now that I have… damn does it feel good! Another check off the ‘ol bucket list. But I never thought I would publish my adult romances before my thriller novels. Once I started working on them though, the story just flowed. Sure, I hit some bumps and bruises along the way, but in under a year I completed all three books: TESTING THE LIMITS, BROKEN RULES, LAST LESSON (check out my books page for descriptions). Don’t ask how many drafts I did before I decided I couldn’t be perfect lol. I’m still amazed I finished them when I did.
And It’s such a mix of emotions right now. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m super elated, but also a little… sad because it’s over. Done. Caput. And now I have to let go of the characters I’ve come to love and cherish. They’ve completed their journey and so have I.
Don’t worry though I have plenty more stories to work on and unless these top the charts (I had one sale within the first thirty minutes of publishing–on my way lol), I’m going to resurrect my thriller novels and work on those. Hopefully I can get them, or at least one of them, published within the next year. I’m planning on using my not-so-secret pen name S.J. Thomas for them and will definitely keep you updated.
