Crossing a Threshold

August has been my best-selling month ever, with almost 70 published titles across Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and, most recently, Kobo.  It's been an exciting experience watching my daily average of sales take off as I steadily write and publish.

It's truly an amazing time to be a writer.  For the first time in history, I can sit down, write a story, and share it with the world in a matter of hours, using only my computer.  Self publishing is a new industry and it's one that I hope will be here forever.  It's just too convenient to ever go away unless some seriously disconnected legislation passes through in an effort to recover 'lost' tax revenues.  That's a subject for another time.  This post is a celebration.

I have crossed the first major goal I set for myself when I started back in November of 2011.  It was an outlandish goal.  One I never dreamed I could reach.  But not only have I met my $200/day goal, I'm looking to obliterate it before the end of the month.  Why $200/day?  It was just some crazy number to grasp after.

Now that I've reached it, though...It just doesn't feel real.  It's actually possible to make a living through the work I love.  While I still plan on becoming a teacher, I'm never giving up my writing.  It's too integral to my thought process.  Anyways, here's to the future.
