If you’ve found this page, I think you probably already know this, but ADORKABLE is my debut novel. It is the first book I’ve ever published. When I hit the publish button, I hoped there would be readers. I hoped there would be people out there who loved Sally and Becks as much as I do. But I never thought that in almost two months so many readers would have already found it!
Now, to some authors, these stats may not seem that great. There may be people who hit it out of the park every time they release a book. But I’m a debut author with little to no social skills and an introverted-ness that nice people would call “awkward” and others would just call “weird.” Self-publishing for the first time was scary. My deepest fear was that no one would read my book, that it would be lost in Amazon oblivion. I’ve heard that this happens a lot. I’m still afraid it may happen to my book(s)–but right now, I’m amazed by how well my little debut has done, and I thought I’d share some stats with you :).

The book is even doing pretty well in Canada and Australia! Again, it may not seem like much, and I may be making something out of nothing. I really have no comparison. But to me, these are some crazy amazing stats! I am very thankful to every reader who has given ADORKABLE a chance and to those who liked it enough to tell their friends. I can’t tell you what it means to me to hear that someone read and loved the book.
