First Year Tally – Piers Anthony

Prolific science-fiction and fantasy author Piers Anthony shared with me a quick thought on the first year.

I began actively working to become a writer in college. In fact I majored in it, and my BA is in Creative Writing. But it was a long slow haul. One year after my decision I had nothing published and no prospects. Eight years after the decision I finally managed to sell my first story. Twelve years after the decision I sold my first novel. I have now had 140 books published, and there are prospects for a movie. But if judged by my first year, I would be a failure.

Something to mull over on this Friday. 😉
You can find Piers Anthony on his website http://www.hipiers.com/.
One of his books (winner’s choice) will be part of the First Year Tally gift drawn at the end of the month!
