Four years ago, I had one poorly written novel under my belt. Seriously, it was all kinds of awful and I self-published it, which is just embarrassing. I posted only a few times that first year, and they were lame posts because I thought I knew what I was doing. I can happily say I have no idea what I'm doing and I love it. :) It's taken some time, but I've written ten novels and I'm working on my eleventh! Here's a brief snapshot of them.
Falling Star - YA Christian Fiction
Down in the Creek - YA Christian Fiction
To Love Without Hope - YA Christian Fiction
The Secret - YA Christian Fiction
Nameless - YA Epic Fantasy
The Freaks (Book One) - YA Urban Fantasy
The Damned (Book Two) - YA Urban Fantasy
Breathless - YA Contemporary Romance
Somebody to Love - YA Epic Fantasy
Silent Beauty - YA Contemporary Romance
Sweet Little Thing - YA Contemporary Romance (WIP)
I've tried a few genres of writing and I really like writing contemporary romance and fantasy, though who knows where I will be in another 4 years! The red ones are shelved at this time, while the one highlighted is the one I have published. (Side note: I have a serious problem with exclamations in this post.) I'm hoping to have more published by next year, but we will have to see.

* Sorry, but due to not having a ton of money, my prizes aren't incredibly special, but I decided to give away 4 smaller gift cards to share with more than one person! (Physical books copies will only be sent to U.S. addresses due to shipping costs.)
What different genres have you tried writing before finding one you liked? How long have you been blogging? Thanks for celebrating 4 years of blogging with me and I can't wait to see what happens in the next four years! :)
