Michelle's corner

Michelle Knight. Writer, photographer, programmer, truck driver and general, all round nut case. Life is a journey and that's what this blog will probably end up being. Let's see where we go, eh? ;-)

It's here

Book 6, GENIE, is finally here in physical format. When it reaches this point, the heart-pumping excitement I used to have when opening these boxes, is very much muted.


It will be next month before my credit card can withstand the purchase of padded envelopes and international postage... but it will happen :-)


What next? Probably a re-work of Companion and Leader. I have flip-flopped between doing this, and not doing it... but as that is my legacy series I do want to at least get it to better than it is now, although it will never be a classic.


Once that is done, I can look to the future and will take whatever few reviews and feedback Genie generates this year, forward in to the next project. I don't expect this book to come anywhere near to a fraction of recouping the cost of its creation; and certainly not even begin to recompense the labour of not only me, but the other people who have given their time and energy to shape it.  That's not a big deal to be honest. I came to a conclusion some time ago, that if it was ever about the money, I should have given up before I even wrote the first book!


So, February will be a time of queuing at the Post Office and coming away with an arm full of receipts and tracking numbers :-) ... oh joy !!!
