I grew up in a household with two brothers, a daddy, and my grandfather. Too many men, in other words. They diluted M'ma's influence by diverting my attention to things like the danger of answering nature's call in the dead of the night. I've got a hint for those of you raised in a less spit-and-scratch world: check before you sit, because chances are that seat is gonna be up.

It sounds simplistic, but it's not. I've seen good writers give up and just walk away and honey, it may take time to get where you're going in this business, but you won't get squat if you simply quit.

It took me 8 years to get published but my husband gave me the biggest compliment of my life the day I received my umpteenth rejection and I said (ok, wailed) "Do you think I'll ever get published?" He said, "Hell, yeah. You're too stubborn to ever give up." Built me right up, I'm telling ya. He took one of my biggest character faults and turned it into a good thing.(less)

My job then is figuring out where I went wrong and fixing it. Once I do, it doesn't get easy, exactly, but at least I know I'm back on track.(less)

Hazel Hi Susan, I just finished Running Wild and wanted to let you know it was AWESOME! I enjoyed the book very much and gave it a 5-star review. I had already read and LOVED the Sisterhood Diaries so I was ecstatic to see an addition to the series. What's up next for you?

Susan Andersen Sorry, Eclipse....ain't gonna happen. They're pretty stinky about their release dates. ;->

If you haven't already read Exposure or Just For Kicks, those are both being reissued--the first next week and the second on April 26th.


message 2: by Jasja

Jasja I keep taking a peek at "Playing Dirty" / your website in the hope of finding out that your publisher has changed the release date to...let's say... a whole lot earlier so I can read it while on holiday in France, but *sniff* no such luck...

If Susan's publisher so happens to read this... I am going on holiday 28 May 2011... O:) (Hey, I can only try... )
