Today is such a great day for me! It’s my anniversary! On this day, exactly twelve months ago I officially became Author Christin Webb. It feels so good to achieve a goal that I spent over twenty years wanting. After all my excuses, fears, doubts, trials and tribulations, I finally stopped negating the possibility.
On September 8, 2012, I self-published my first inspirational novel, “Enough Time”. It’s what I consider to be my best written piece to date. And while it is fiction, it entails so many of my beliefs on life, it reveals some of my own experiences, and proves that redemption is always an option for anyone, including myself. 😉 I say its inspirational because once you get past all the drama and juicy plots, it has so much residue for inspiring moments of change and encouragement.
What do I want to do next? As relates to my writing, I plan on continuing by publishing at least two more books within the next five years. Five years to some seems like a long time, but I want to be sure to take my time, plan well and produce a good quality piece of work that captures my growth as a writer perfectly. I also hope to continue screenwriting. Writing and producing my first short film definitely ignited a new passion for me. I realize that I’m not limited to only a computer word processing system, blog, or paperback book, but I can share my written thoughts on screen as well.
Of course, I couldn’t have done this alone. There are people who have been in my corner, encouraging me, inspiring me, giving me opportunities and platforms and flat out supporting me throughout this process. Here are a few people I definitely couldn’t overlook when writing this update:
Wintrell Pittman (adviser on the entire book publishing process)
Sheree R Thomas (award winning editor that edited “Enough Time” and inspiration)
Brenda Joysmith (world-renowned artist and owner of Joysmith Galleries where my book release was held. I just appreciate being able to have my release at a memorable location)
Raf Valentino (film director/co-producer of the “Enough Time” book trailer)
Will Henry (producer of book trailer soundtrack)
Cornelius Brown (motivated me to keep moving and did a review of the first draft)
Linda Evans (supported me greatly through some tough patches)
Mario Reed (gave me insight to my marketing process)
Roger Pearson (created the book cover)
Ari Hotep (author headshot photographer)
The journey has been awesome and I look forward to what the future holds. I’m more confident in myself, my abilities, and my future! I’m going to continue living passionately out loud and maintain my own happiness.
