Hello Dear Readers.
As always, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. More than that, I want to extended my sincere gratitude for your dedicated following throughout 2015. I feel blessed and not a little humbled to have had such an amazing backing throughout the year. Hats off to you all.
Today, I will summarize my accomplishments throughout 2015.
2015 marked the birth of “Author Adonis Mann“, prior to that I was “Aspiring Author Adonis Mann“. What a wonderful thing to experience, to have one’s dreams come true in such a marvelous and tangible way!
With the publication of “Concordant Vibrancy 1: Unity” came the wakening of my aspiration of being published. From there things just got better. Subsequently, I was signed on the All Authors Publishing House. It was a phenomenal thing to know that All Authors Publishing House accepted, not only new aspiring authors, but also short story writers, of which I was both.
Soon after “Concordant Vibrancy 1: Unity” came the release of my first official solo publication, “Let’s Play on Valentine’s Day”, although short, it was an accomplishment just to have had it published.
Soon after that came the release of “Crackles of the Heart: Divergent Ink Book 1” which included my short story contribution “Mystical Nights”, then shortly thereafter the release of “… and we” as a solo work.
Throughout this time I was blogging and book reviewing. I’d even started up a book review blog series which I called “Drive-By Reviews”. It was my own little blog corner dedicated to reviewing books of all genres and sizes. Although, my personal favorite was reviewing books within my own genre preference.
During this time my friendship/kinship grew stronger with the All Authors Publishing House Family Members. I was honored and appreciative to have developed this comradeship as one can never have too much support.
Soon after, came the call for the 2nd installment of “Concordant Vibrancy 2: Vitality” and immediately I got to work on my short story contribution to said anthology. A contemporary fiction about a man trying to find his way in the world, I called it “Barbershop: A Story of Home”.
In the interim of all of these wonderful events, I was also writing short stories and setting them aside as they will be included in my upcoming solo anthology called “The Syncopation of Ravishing Intensity”.
Apart from all of this, later on in the year I was asked to be a part of All Authors Magazine. I was so incredibly excited to have been asked to become a part of such a wonderful literary magazine, along side so many outstandingly talented authors. I was given a column named after my personal venture, “Drive-By Reviews”.
The very last thing that I accomplished this year was a collaborative work with my good friend, House Family Member and sister, Synful Desire. Together we wrote, “Simmer; Smoothe & Sweet”. This was my first extended work, having reached the size of a novelette. Thank you Desire, for asking me to be a part of this project. Words cannot explain my gratitude.
While to some my accomplishments may not seem like a lot, to me they are innumerable, as in 2014 I would have never imagined that all of these things would have happened.
Suffice it to say that 2015 has been a very productive year, and I can only surmise that 2016 will be equally as spectacular.
Again, thank you all for being there for me. I would like to bid you all the most sincere of Seasons Greetings, and I pray that your New Year be filled with joy, love and productivity.
