September 28th, 2008 I signed my first contract with Liquid Silver Books. It’s been one hell of a year. I’ve learned so much! I can certainly see my growth from book to book. Each one I write ends up being my favorite,Â so now I have to say that it’s my favorite “so far”.
Wyoming Solace. My baby. My firstborn. I started writing this story back in 1990. Yeah, I know. I did the math. :p I didn’t write faithfully, or even consistently. My editor at the time Deanna Pryce spent a lot of time with me, and broke me of a lot of bad habits. One of my early issues was the overuse of adverbs. My final editing project was to search for the ending -ly and hack them in half. Some sentences had two and three in there! So I like to describe things, okay!?
One year, and five books. I think that calls for some blackberry brandy.
