Happy New Year from Sebastian Cole

Posted on December 26, 2013

SebastianCole2LowResCrop

2013 was a thrilling year for me. I sold about 9,000 SAND DOLLAR: A Story of Undying Love eBooks this year (which was about 8,999 more than I sold the year before, ha), gave away over 107,000 eBooks in a week, and received over 300 reviews on Amazon!

I’m excited for bigger and better things to come in 2014. I’m finally starting to write my second book. Yay! (Better late than never, right?) The Portuguese version of SAND DOLLAR is due out in Portugal in February. (I can’t wait to see it!) And I look forward to spending the upcoming year with all of the online friends I’ve made.

May the new year be a good year for us, filled with health, happiness, perhaps a dream or two coming true, and most of all, may it be filled with love.

- Sebastian  :)

King of the Pond

Posted on June 12, 2013

“As I lay there watching Robin sleep beside me, I realized that she was right all along. I didn’t need to live in a castle — a shack in the woods with her would do just fine. And for that matter, I didn’t need to be prince of the ocean either, because with her by my side… I was king of the pond.”
