What It's All About

Quick update today.  I’m taking a short break from editing “Tears of Heaven” (ERMAHGAWD, I have an editor!) to post this update.

Thirty years ago, my mother asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I told her I wanted to be a writer.  She warned me it wouldn’t be easy, that they would take the best work I had written, and throw it back in my face.  She wasn’t wrong.  I have enough rejections (and lack of responses) to wallpaper a house (which ever writer knows is the goal).

Last week, in a flurry of heart-attack-level excitement I was notified that I would be offered a contract.  Offered the contract.  Signed the contract.  And, finally, assigned an editor.

I’ve wanted to work with a real, live, red-pen-in-hand editor, and iron-for-blood editor more than you can imagine.  (Sure, sure, you can imagine quite a bit, but it’s still not enough.)

So I’m moving like mad, getting the manuscript going, but every now and then I get caught up reading my own work and I think, “Yeah, that’s not bad.”

Here’s hoping you all enjoy it too.  I’ll be posting most updates on the status, the process, also some excerpts to whet the appetite.  Please like, share and mention me to anyone who likes books!


  1. And now the work begins! Congrats!

    1. You aren't kidding, either! If ever an author needed an editor, it's me!
