Well, if we were the busy, practicing writer we should always be, we had a second story. But you know, that one may not be as polished, having not suffered (or enjoyed) such a long gestation period. But we’ve got to put it out there because now we’re “published” and we have to follow up with another.
You know, this doesn’t get any easier. But if one book gave us legitimacy in the eyes of our non-writing extended family, two books says we’re serious about this “hobby.”
I’m pleased to say I’ve hit the second book milestone with a contract for my beauty-and-the-beast fantasy romance “BLOODSTONE.” So I’m celebrating tonight, and like Scarlet O’Hara, I’ll worry about the third book milestone “tomorrow.”
