There’s a first time for everything

As a self-published author there are a lot of firsts to experience:

Submitting that final file version to Amazon and holding your breath waiting for it to go live…

Seeing that first sale on your author dashboard…

Reading that first five star review…

Reading the first less-than-stellar review…

Watching reactions, comments and “likes” when someone posts a review of your work on their blog…

And FAN ART!! 

I couldn’t believe it, but I got the coolest surprise today. Kimberlyn Day (who incidentally released a book YESTERDAY) took time out of her busy schedule to make and send me this little gem. 

To say I’m thrilled would be an understatement. Fan art is one of those things I see for other books and think ‘cool,’ but had never imagined someone making for me. Maybe because writing is the only artistic bone I possess?

Have you ever been inspired to create fan art? Why? What made that book, movie, or other media so special that you needed to put a little bit of your heart and soul into it? Feel free to share in the comments. 

And please check out Kimberlyn’s series Survivors of Paradise and her blog. Her latest installment, Jane’s Dilemma, dropped yesterday. They’re on my To Read list for sure!
