Happy 1st (Book)Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my first book, Reflection: The Stranger in the Mirror! The book was released one year ago today, and it’s hard to believe how much has happened since then.

I found an awesome book cover designer in West Coast Design that improved the look from my original attempt (I tried hard, but there’s no competing with the pros!) to something gorgeous!

In September, Book 2, Reflection: Harbinger of the Phoenix was released.

In October, Book 1 became available on Netgalley, and it ended up being among the most requested books in Sci Fi & Fantasy.netgalley 381

In March, my books were added to the collection at the Cincinnati Public Library.


And in just a few short weeks Book 3, Reflection: Thorn of the White Rose, will be released!

It’s been a great year, and its all because of your support, dear readers! Thank you, and I hope that you’ll stick with me for the next one too! ^_^

PS-I know, I know, you’re really all just here to see more of Sumo. ^_-

    1. Haha, Now that’s the bitter way to look at it! A less bitter perspective: being available in the library is a way for even more readers to find my story. And maybe they’ll enjoy it enough to buy a copy or recommend them to a friend. At the very least, it means someone in the library acquisitions department liked my story well enough to buy copies for the collection! ^_-

      1. Yeah, I guess it gets you a few sales to the library. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be awesome to be in a library, I just wonder what it does to book sales. Cause it’s all about the money for me.

  1. Congrats! Looks like your hard work is paying off. Just wanted to say I recently read the first 2 books and enjoyed them, and I’m looking forward to reading the 3rd when it comes out!


    1. Thank you very much! Hearing that you enjoyed my books really means a lot, and it helps inspire me to keep ,offing forward! I’m working very hard putting the finishing touches on book 3, and it will be released at the end of this month. ^_^ I’ll be making a post to reveal the blurb later this week!
