I guess that's the best advice I can give. Don't write with the goal of publication...even if that's where you're heading. Write a story that you would want to read. One that you write because you love it. The market changes so quickly, and, as you've said, it is inundated with product. But, remember this - there is nothing new under the sun. Every story has been done before. You are what brings the new and extraordinary to the tale. Your voice is what will bring the characters to life. You have yourself to offer to the market, and it doesn't matter how many manuscripts get rejected, yours can still be the one that sells. This industry is tough. Rejection is part of the journey, but if you persist, you will find the right place and the right time for your work. (less)

Release Day (And Beautiful You)

Today is release day for Bittersweet!


This book is darker and grittier than the other two Home Sweet Home books.  Both the hero and the heroine have traumatic pasts. Both have lost people they loved. Both had their childhoods stolen. Both are strong and resilient characters who refuse to let their pasts define them.

Hi Marybelle,

That's a great question. I'd written 35 Love Inspired Suspense books, but I wanted to go back to my roots. My very first published book was a small town romance with just a hint of suspense. STILL WATERS was meant to be a light easy read See Full Answer
