A couple of weeks ago I did my first ever real live interview. I spend so much time interviewing other authors, and hardly do them myself. When the opportunity presented itself I thought, why the hell not!? So here it is. I really enjoyed being put on the spot about how to self-publish, how to approach publishers and agents, laughing and joking etc. The host even read one of my books and enjoyed it LOL which surprised me. If you want to list in click the link below.
Guys, I’ve done it!! I almost gave up on this historical romantic suspense I penned in April 2019. I’ve named it ‘Sacrifices’ and I loved writing every word of this. I was thinking of maybe just self-publishing this year, and give up on traditional publishing. I had A LOT of rejection, one offer I turned down, and publishers and editors wanting me to ‘change this and that’…. I kinda said ‘no’. I made a promise I’d submit my work out for a full year, until April 2020 before I give up. That said, I was at a stage where I was not about to hold out until this April. But, in less than a year, I’ve secured book deal today, from a publisher I think I’ll work with and possibly submit the crime thriller I’m writing to them also, if they are interested. ( I hope).
I want to say to any writer who aspires to be traditionally published, do not take ‘no’ for an answer. Keep going, the door will and can open, I promise.
The start of 2020 has been so busy with writing, I feel like I’ve used my blog as a dumping ground for promo only! And not really engaged, you have to forgive me. I have Chances, A Puerto Rican Love Affair released next week, and Blinded by Love a short story anthology I took part in released on the 28th February. Also, Didi and I are working on The Suspenseful Collection Volume #2 Blurred Lines , to release in April. So as you can see I’ve had little time to blog. On top of this family life too, to juggle! This is just a quick blog to share the news, and say I will be back to blogging, doing the daily writing prompt challenges, interviewing other authors and all the fun stuff I usually like to do to engage with you. I hope you’re all well, and the start of 2020 is treating you well?
I’m okay, doing great and counting down the days until I turn thirty-seven on the 14 ( yikes!) where have the years gone!??
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!
