Great News and More News
Well, I’d like to start off by sharing my excitement. I woke up today to find my first book, a short story, posted on Goodreads. Why is that exciting? I poured my time, love, and heart into writing that story that I want to share with everyone. Once I finished writing it, I felt disconnected from it. Like, okay, it’s done now time to move on to something else. Then I went through editing and it still felt unreal–surreal. But when I saw the first real step, proof that it is really happening, When I saw my name on Goodreads with the book title above it, I nearly had an anxiety attack. This is really happening! I think my arms are going to be bruised from pinching myself so much. 🙂
Here’s the listing on Goodreads. In My Mother’s Footsteps by Forbes Arnone Please check it out and if it looks like something you’d like to read then put it on your “want to read” list. 🙂 I’d greatly appreciate it.

Hi I am Ryan Tyler, and my book Age of Armageddon:The Spirit of Krynn, was released through Author Bomb Books on April 15, 2013 , in a horrible coincidence. There is a blog on wordpress about my scifi/post apoc/fantasy with info and a sample chapter. Anyway, I posted a signed book giveaway today through Goodreads and experienced a similar feeling of accomplishment seeing the title “there” and available. I put my heart and soul into this writing and it is great to see the finality of a finished work.
Good luck and I wish you success.
Thank you. Isn’t the feeling wonderful?! I’m still a little stunned and shocked.
I’ll check out your book and your blog. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by! Good luck to you too and I’ll find you on Goodreads as well.
