#250

I don’t post daily page counts or stuff like that here on the blog anymore, as I did when I started it, but there are a few milestones I like to mention. Earlier this week, I delivered my 250th novel. It’s a house-name book, one of the ones I can’t reveal, but that’s okay. I’m still proud of having written 250 novels. I’m not sure I have 250 more in me, but I think I can keep going for a while yet, as long as the editors have faith in me and the readers enjoy what I’m doing. Many thanks to everyone who has helped make it possible!

Congratulations! And (as far as I can tell) not a bad one in the bunch!

Patti,
The fact that many of my friends have written more books than I have (in some cases hundreds more) keeps me pretty well grounded, I hope. I just plan to keep doing what I do as long as somebody will let me do it.

Chris said...

Awesome. Congrats! Here's to another wagonload more!

Add my name to the chorus, James. Not only a large number, but of the ones I know high quality as well.

Charles Gramlich said...

You appear to be slightly ahead of me in the numbers department. I hope you don't hear my footsteps coming up behind you. ;)

Okay, I spotted you a 248 book lead. Now watch my smoke.

Ha, just dreaming. That's a fantastic accomplishment and you have every reason to be proud. And as someone said, not a clunker in the lot.

Congrats from me as well. Keep on writing. While I have, by no means read anywhere close to your total, I can say I've read nothing I would consider routine. One can tell you approach each book as if it were the first. With a lot of care.

Matthew P. Mayo said...

I find that feat incredible, impressive, and inspirational.

Here's to 250 more!

Cheers,
Matt

You, John Creasey, and Isaac Asimov are my heroes!
