A lot of you might already know that my 2nd book, Journey of Hope (Buy your copy here), released last week. One of the universal comments on Journey of Hope that I’ve received from people I know has been, “I like it even better than the first book.” LOL, that statement is usually followed by a quick disclaimer, “Oh, I liked the first book, it’s just that this one is even better.” It’s as if they fear that they have just insulted me or something.
But, I’m far from insulted to hear that Journey of Hope is better than The Doctor’s Mission. After all, shouldn’t each new book in an author’s career reflect improvement? Exactly like that old adage, practice makes perfect. If the third book gets similar comments, it will tell me that the practice of writing is paying off!
Hopefully, as we learn and grow in any skill, we get better, right? Think back to that sport, that first culinary attempt, those music lessons, or whatever skill you’ve acquired or are beginning to acquire in your life. You’re better than your first attempt, right?
I want to be one of those authors whose readers find that their later works are better than their first. What is it you want to improve on in your life? To be able to look back on later and see how far you’ve come? Share with me and be in the running for your choice of a copy of Journey of Hope or The Doctor’s Mission.
