While 2021 was on the cusp of being as bad as the hellhole of 2020, I am very blessed to have finally published my novel between the turn of those years. The publishing process had begun around November of 2020 and officially announced in March 2021. I am very thankful for this along with several friends I've made along the way.
I am proud to announce that after the first 50 prints, only 5 are remaining, Which means, I have 45 books out! Several have told me that they have completed it, I know some may not have started them which is fine, but I am so happy that that many people have seen my story firsthand! I have managed to sell out my 3 copies at Barnes & Noble, sold eBooks, and mailed off a few signed copies even! It truly is amazing that even though the book IS out, I am still crossing many new paths in this incredible journey.
One of my favorite things to do is watch people looking at my book without me saying a word, and see if they can actually make the connection that I wrote it 😂😂😂
While it has been an interesting and heartfelt end to 2021, I hope and pray this upcoming year is much better and everyone better have a New Year's resolution! If anything, just learn how to be there for people or just to listen when they need a friend. And laugh more.
ANYWHOOO I have planned on doing some more updates to this site, but I've started several new jobs to compensate for my upcoming projects, which I also have a lot of! As far as future books are concerned, the timeline will probably included 20 canonical books, making this a much larger series than I anticipated, but I'm looking forward to more world-building and lore as well.
Here are my current writing projects:
Book 1 Rise of Tourniquet : Completed
Book 2 Dusty Rose : In Progress
Book 3 Hysteria (Working Title Name) : In Planning
Book 2.5 Storybook/Graphic Novel Auran Knights : In Progress
Along with many more!
So stay tuned for lots of updates. Also, YouTube is basically dead, so please find me on TikTok under RoseaceCompany (the one with all the videos). I tire of spending months on videos just to get maximum 20 views. We've also lost watch hours which I don't understand. Anyways, hope you all are well and inspired in 2022!
