The first, Orbs, is not only a bestseller, but it got picked up by Simon & Schuster. The second, The Tisaian Chronicles, consistently charts in a number of science fiction categories.

@kevinmichael3 Wish I could. Have fun guys!
@kevinmichael3 I'm going to throw on some make up, can I get an invite and be there soon? Don't want to scare anyone with my real face.
@kevinmichael3 me please :D
@michelleread you are beautiful without makeup. Besides makeup is evil >.<
@kevinmichael3 I'd like to if there's space, please
@kevinmichael3 sure, invite me
@kevinmichael3 firstname.lastname@example.org I think. Ask John or Carl if that's right. I get confused with the internets.
@kevinmichael3 me! email@example.com
HA! I work full time and wrote/edited/published 14 short stories and a couple novellas last year.
It is doable. It just takes some work.
@crissymoss Crissy for the win!
@crissymoss That's cause you're awesome. Want to come hold my hand and make me work that much?
@crissymoss Might be your awesome multi-tasking skills :)
@crissymoss I work full time, homeschool my kids and have published 13 works (novels, novellas, short stories) in 1.5 year. It's definitely doable.
@michelleread Yeah, she wins.
I think it's very mature and sweet that he doubted that 2 would do as well as 1 without an agent doing some teamwork with him.
@kevinmichael3 guess we're only going to have a 2 hour after party today :(
