Today I will speak of things to come. But first to begin with what I know now. My eBook of "Trinity and the Sad Child" has been downloaded fifteen times so far and it is day four of the free promotion. The previous book of "Trinity and the Sick Kids" was downloaded a total of eighteen times during its promotion and the first book "Trinity and the Bully" was downloaded thirty times on its own. In print, "Trinity and the Bully" has been purchased six times.
Each of those stories are going to be released again in a collected edition. Three stories in one book for everyone to enjoy. Additionally, I will be releasing artwork not before seen on the books or online. As well as the blog entries that tell the story of Peter and his time spent at the boarding school that he was sent to from the first book. His story is told from the ten blog entry series I posted, but within the book will be a special exposition of the events that followed the final chapter of that blog. This will be exclusive to the collected volume.
Additionally, I will be adding a new foreword to the collected works as well as a separate foreword for each story. I will tell of the course and impact that each story has taken and what it has meant after its release. Furthermore, there will be additional commentary on the stories at the end. I'll also be including two of the three poems I read at the open mic event from August the sixth. I don't think "Naked for Climate Change" is neither pertinent or appropriate for the collected stories of a children's series. Besides, that poem is available to read under the stories tab on the website.
Once the collected works are released and attainable for the public, I will update the website with the artwork that I included. However, the additional texts or writing will remain only accessible through the collected volume.
The most important part of the collected works and what I have to look forward to the most is the dedication. I love to thank people who have supported me or influenced me in the course of becoming an author. Any success I attain now or ever is partly their doing and I don't deserve any success at all, if any, unless I thank them and keep them in my thoughts and their names on my pages.
I'm not merely grateful for the few things I have, but also for the friends I have made. I'm grateful for everything that they have done whether they knew it or not. I feel like they deserve a special mention because they have been special to me.
I hope to share many more names with you of the people who have given me the inspiration to do what I do. As well as the encouragement to try for excellence. One day, maybe I can do more for them than to mention them by name. Until then, I can make no promises. I can only promise them to try.
