My favorite author right now is Jennifer L. Armentrout. I love Julie Kawaga and Wendy Higgins, too. Oh, and I have been known to read a Kristen Ashley book or ten. But I’m not a buy it just because that author wrote it type of reader. Sometimes they stray away from things that I enjoy in a book. Isn’t that a great thing about books? That there’s something out there for every taste.
Editing sucks your soul. Publishing is not that fun on our end. It’s all so much work, but the writing… the writing is the fun part. Three o’clock in the morning when most people are sleeping your eyes pop open and that’s when you reach for the trusty notebook and pencil you keep by your bedside to begin scribbling down this story concept or scene that forced you awake. Does that sound familiar to you? If so, then you might just be a writer, too. I can’t tell you how many stories started their life in scribbles that I found hard to decipher the next morning from those notebooks, or hastily written on napkins or even a square of toilet paper. Go ahead and laugh--it’s happened.
