Will I ever make it onto my own book shelf?

I’ve just taken one giant step… not really for mankind, but definitely for me. Two weeks ago I left a well-paid job at a daily newspaper to finish writing my first crime novel. I started writing the book about eight years ago just for fun – it was really a story that just became longer and longer. So I’ve had this on the go since then, not taking it very seriously.
