Hey Ya’ll! So… this new author thing is TOTALLY. COOL. Example! Today I’m being featured at an awesoooooooome site celebrating great literature, specifically African American literature.
Check out an EXCLUSIVE excerpt from Brunch at Ruby’s at A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet!
An update on my publishing to do list!
Today’s snippet is from my current…ish serial A Thin Line, a story about two people who’ve known and loved each other nearly their entire lives, but you’d never know it because they bicker constantly. They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. JC and Angie find out how thin that line really is when they’re forced to plan the wedding of their two best friends. Why aren’t I running away, horrified that this man I cannot stand just gave me the best kiss I’ve had in years?
If I wanted Max, I would be with her. What if I want you?”
ARC’s are Advanced Reader Copies. They are typically uncorrected galleys of a manuscript. Typically very limited ARCs are made available as they are normally sent out to professional book reviewers / bloggers so that these reviewers can read the book and post a review prior to the actual release. This gives a book visibility before it goes on sale… creates a buzz, if you will.
Some of the best advice I’ve heard from published authors is to read your work aloud. While I think that is stellar advice, I can tune myself out with the best of them and still trip over errors. The next best thing for me is to read along while someone else reads it aloud, because I am not used to that voice and I’ll be listening.
Do YOU know anyone that would sit for 9 hours and read a novel aloud to you? I didn’t think so.
For Writing Wednesday this week, I am sharing an excerpt from my forthcoming novel, Brunch at Ruby’s. The book hits the digital shelves on 3.24.2015!
Crazy Little Thing is a full tour through a relationship’s ups and downs, trials and joys. I was only sad that this book ended for a moment, because then I remembered I have two more books set in this enviable world. I’m ready to jump back in!
I hope this never gets old!
I’m pleased to find out that this will be a series, because I could deal with much more of James Beck and his Band of Not So Merry Men.
Four star read, worth the panic attack!
