The pent up anxiety of releasing a new book has lessened somewhat for me with book #9. But, I feel the anxiety is beginning to creep up with the day getting closer and closer.
Marly In Pieces has been in the works for well over a year. I was grateful to have Chrys Fey to work with me. She diligently edited this manuscript, tightening and polishing many scenes. We reduced the telling aspects into showing, which is so important.

July 1st question: There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade?
I would like brick and mortar stores, such as Barnes and Noble, Target, Walmart...etc...to accept indie published books to be stacked in their book isles.
I tried to get one of my books into B&N, years ago, by filling out their required paperwork and sent them my book. But they rejected it.
I have heard some authors were able to get their books distributed. I'd like to learn how that happened.
It seems most of them only accept traditional published books.
I am happy to see writer's that worked so hard on their books, and had been rejected by agents, can now self-publish. That's a big plus!
