7. Will there be anymore books in the Boston Love series?
YES! When? I don't know. I am trying to work them into my release schedule! But that series is for sure not finished!
8. I'm writing a book, will you please read it?
I wish I could, but I simply cannot. For one, I have my own writing schedule that is insane! And, it's best to find someone you can completely trust (not that you can't trust me!), but someone who will give you honest feedback on what you're writing. Also, my advice to you is to NEVER send your manuscript to just anyone. You truly only need the feedback of one, maybe two trusted people. Someone who will be brutally honest with you. Remember...too many cooks in the kitchen and all of that!
9. I'm writing a book and need help. Can you tell me how to write a book?
I wish it was that easy. I can't tell you how to write something that is in your own head. I can tell you this...write for yourself. It's your story to tell and only you can tell it. Do not write something because you think that is what people want to read. Don't be a follower...write the story you want to tell. Don't stop and read it over and over again. Get it all out on paper (on the computer screen if you will), THEN go back and do a read through. Always follow your heart. Do not compare yourself to other writers, and don't be afraid to follow your dreams! And PAY for editing.
10. Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Not always. When I was in high school and we read Pride and Prejudice, that was when I knew I wanted to be like Jane Austen. She's my favorite author BTW. I thought I wanted to write children's books at first. Once in college one of my professors told me I wrote in circles and would never be a writer. Unfortunately, I believed him. It took me a number of years to build the courage I needed to write my first novel and publish it. In the meantime I filled notebooks with little stories, kept journals, wrote silly newsletters, anything to write. The moral of this story is...never let someone tell you can't do something. You'll never know unless you take the jump!
11. Where do your ideas for your books come from?
Oh goodness! They come from everywhere. A song, an overheard story, a dream, my wondering thoughts. My mind is always coming up with new stories. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming since I have the urge to write them all. There are so many stories I'm pretty sure I'll never get to unless I get super far ahead in my writing schedule.
