Happy birthday!

Today is exactly one year since my debut novel, Wolf’s Head, was published.

I had no idea what to expect – I was simply hoping to make a few sales and begin to make a name for myself that I could build on during the coming years.

Well, things have gone much better than I could ever have hoped, with both Wolf’s Head and the sequel The Wolf and the Raven hitting Amazon’s “War” chart number 1 spot, with the first novel even making it onto the overall Top 20 bestseller list!

I’ve had an audiobook produced, been invited down to the capital by Amazon KDP for the London Book Fair (as well as being feautured on the front page of Amazon.co.uk), contributed articles to the Writers and Artists Yearbook website and, just last night, started work on a novella which will sit outside the main Forest Lord series and tell us something about Sir Richard-at-Lee’s time on Cyprus with the Knights Hospitaller (expect something different with that, I’m looking to add elements of the supernatural…).

Not to mention my son, Riley, being born! And all of this while still working full-time as a gas/electric meter reader.

Phew….

So, happy birthday to Wolf’s Head, and thank you to all my readers for supporting me over the last year. Hopefully the next year brings even more success and I can get the novella, as well as book three in The Forest Lord, published. Remember to follow me here on WordPress, or on my Facebook page to keep up with everything and, please – spread the word! 🙂

  1. Fantastic, Steven. You’ve obviously had a great year – and are an inspiration to the rest of us in terms of dedication and hard work – so glad it’s paying off for you.

    • Thank you very much Margaret, it IS possible! Hearing from guys like Gordon Doherty who self-published like I did and sold enough books to make a living at it was what really inspired me in the first place, so it’s very nice to be doing the same for other people myself now. 🙂
