I've been doing this for a while now with posts to celebrate my first book, Prince of Thorns, turning 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 ... and now 100, as in 100,000 ratings on Goodreads.
This time the milestone has fallen just after the release of The Girl And The Stars in paperback and just before the release of The Girl And The Mountain in hardback.
I'm writing this blog post from the Children's Hospital where I'm staying with my daughter Celyn who has sepsis for the 3rd time during the pandemic. It seem appropriate for a Prince of Thorns milestone given that a significant portion of it was written while I was in various hospitals with Celyn.
All of which is to say that you can never tell what's going to happen next. Milestones come and go. They're fun opportunities to look back and see what a strange and meandering path we've plotted. I think though that I've done enough of this sequence. Perhaps if the book ever reaches 200,000 ratings we can check in again.
