Today is the 5th Anniversary of 10,000 Dawns. All those years ago, with the help of the Southgate Media Group, I launched a story near and dear to my heart about a girl named Graelyn who ran away from everything, even her own fate. That readers cared about the story as much as did was a surprise, and getting to tell more stories with these characters has been a real pleasure and honor...and brought me countless opportunities, including getting to work on WARS, and assist with publishing Cwej and P.R.O.B.E.
I've been touched meeting many of you on the con circuit, or getting messages from you, about how much parts of the story meant to you. Whether it was the LGBT+ representation in the tale that meant something to you, or Graelyn or Arch's struggles with their own trauma and mental health...or anything else that touched you, I'm truly truly honored this story could mean so much to you. Thank you.
This anniversary is dedicated to you, dear reader. Whoever you are. Thank you for making 10,000 Dawns wonderful. Wherever you are, please take care of yourself, and give yourself the compassion you deserve (which is a lot). I hope you'll stick around for the next five years.
