Time flies it would seem, and though I still can’t believe I’m writing this, it was ONE YEAR AGO today that my first novel ‘A Game For The Young’ was published!
Firstly a huge thank you if you’ve been able to take the time to read it.
Looking back over the year has given me a chance to summarise some of the highlights so it seemed fitting to share them:
- The initial response from my post on Facebook about writing a novel. Everyone was so supportive – and continue to be.
- Seeing the reviews from readers as they came in: https://davidpphilip.com/novels/a-game-for-the-young-reviews/
- Doing a few telephone interviews for local media and getting a two page article published in Etc Magazine: https://davidpphilip.com/blog/david-p-philip/thank-you-etc-magazine/
- Reading books and listening to audiobooks at a rate far quicker than anything I’ve done in the past: https://davidpphilip.com/blog/book-reviews/
- Reaching 10,000 followers on Twitter: http://twitter.com/DppAuthor
- Launching my website (and switching between various WordPress themes for weeks on end): http://www.davidpphilip.com/
- Learning the necessary skills to edit the video trailers for the novel: https://davidpphilip.com/novels/videos/
- I’ve recently spent some time in a recording studio, which was weird but a lot of fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q8p5iOZS9g
I’m writing my second book at the moment, but it’s a slow process. Hopefully I’ll have some news on that later this year (or next).
Thanks again for all your support
