Over the past year, I’ve sold more books than I imagined I would as a firs time book publisher. I’ve gotten some reviews. I’ve met readers, and every single meeting has been a privilege.
I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to all the readers, that have given my first literary work such a warm welcome. You can’t imagine what that means to an author. We spend so much time writing in seclusion, wondering if the work is any good, hoping that someone will appreciate our efforts.
And then someone reads what we wrote, says it’s great or unique or compelling, and we are energized by those words and encouraged to keep on writing. So, if you ever doubt that authors value what you have said about their work, know that they do. So, keep them coming!
I am extremely grateful for your support over the past months, during the writing process and publication of my book.
The publishing journey is long, but it’s not lonely because of my friends, family, and readers. I’ve learned that I must make my own points and celebrate each one.
That’s why to celebrate my first anniversary as an author/publisher, I am happy to inform you that I am finalizing the manuscript for my second book, Garifuna Ancestry: The DNA Quest to Decipher the Garifuna Distant Past! The book explores the interrelationships among Garifuna history, identity, cultural heritage, lineage, genealogy, and genetic ancestry (DNA) in deciphering the Garifuna’s distant past.
