I’ve been practicing the art of patience-which has a lot to do with writing, publishing, and the necessary addition of marketing.
As for writing, the biggest topic on an author’s “list-of-things-to-do,” I have a completed manuscript with a working title of In Plain Sight. This novel will be proposed as a series, From the CIA. As you may have guessed, the genre is romantic suspense.
I also have the sequel to COURT OF LIES, entitled Window of Lies, two thirds finished with a goal of completing the first draft this year.
At the same time, you’d think I’d be contacting publishers with the finished manuscript, BUT my marketing team has advised me to wait; to wait until we’ve developed a video for In Plain Sight. Very exciting as my team of four is made up of three marketing agents, two of which are filmmakers, and a screenwriter for Lifetime movies. I’m going to trust their expertise.
So now I have a novel to finish, a video to create, and then I go to the publisher with the plan of a fantastically lively 2013. I remind myself that “13” is my lucky number and hope to pass that feeling on to readers as I offer them romance, suspense, and a thrilling ride through the pages of my actively undercover year :-)
