Annetta Ribken (msnetta) | 34 comments "Athena's Promise" was released 10/28 and there are already four five-star reviews!

OMG I am so relieved. *phew*

What a nerve-wracking process, releasing a book. And what a rush! :)

Darian Wilk Nerve wracking indeed lol, congrats on the reviews, you should feel proud!


Annetta Ribken (msnetta) | 34 comments Thanks, Darian. I am -- and humbled, too, you know? I'm trying to savor the moment but not get caught up in it. To me, it's important to finish the next one, then the next one...rinse and repeat. :)

But outside validation, finally, after all this time and work? Yeah. I'm definitely loving this part.

Kat (katzombie) Congrats Annetta!


Annetta Ribken (msnetta) | 34 comments Thanks, everybody! I'm really happy with the way AP has been received...and very grateful. Now all I have to do is write Book 2 -- "Athena's Chains". No pressure. Heh.

4 pages a day (1000 words) 5 days a week and you'll be done in no time (a la Dean Wesley Smith - I'm less regular, but I know I'll finish my first draft by the end of the month even if I don't keep a daily wordcount) ;-)

This is for all writers, BTW! 1000 words (4 pages) a day 5 days a week is 3 or 4 books a year... do the math...

Happy writing!
