What I love…

Saying thank you

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks, ever since the release of Wolf Tracks. Now with Falling, Freestyle out, Turn It On in print next week, and Tangled Tinsel as well…

I need to regroup. I’ve been chatting, and writing blogs and writing new stories. I’m working on edits for the 2nd and 3rd book in the Pacific Passion series. There just seem to always be another thing to do–and while I love being busy, and I LOVE writing, I will admit that the part that makes it most exciting is hearing from people who have enjoyed my books.

And I’m not alone-all writers love it. So here’s my challenge to you. If you’ve read a book that you really enjoyed during the last month, and I’m not talking only about MY books, any book– let the author know. With the ease of blogging/ adding reviews to Amazon/ goodreads etc, it’s easy to lose that personal touch. Take the time and tweet them, hit their facebook page–something.

Reach out and touch someone. ;) It’s amazing how much it will mean to them.

(And I do send out thanks to all of you who have supported me in my writing. <3)

What I love about writing #2...

There are so many things I adore about this business, and it’s finally time for me to pull out the second chapter.

I love the reactions.

When I write a story I rarely have an agenda. **thinks for a second** Let me try that again. When I write, I never have an agenda other than to write a book that I’d like to read. It’s true…I don’t have a list of social situations or injustices that I want to address during the writing of the story. I don’t often have anything more in my head than a single image or short scene, and the entire story evolves around that.

Like in Wolf Signs–that all started from wondering what it would be like for someone who was deaf to suddenly to be able to hear in a very special way. Robyn let me know, and one step after another the story progressed as I pictured her experiencing a very cool situation, in a very beautiful location. Now, four books later, there’s this group of crazy wolfies that people seem to enjoy visiting with.

So what about reactions? Well, there’s the reaction to the things in the books, like did I get the sign language right–I was told it works by a number of the deaf community. There have been responses from people who have dealt with abuse, like the heroine in Rocky Mountian Haven, who said thank you for the story. Those reactions made me cry to read.

I really find it fascinating how ten people can read the same book, and come away with ten different responses. The things they liked, the things they disliked. It all comes back, I think, to our life experiences, where we live, all those things that make us who we are.

For the record? I love them all. The reactions that are WOW- cool, and the reactions Hmmm-didn’t do it for me. Especially when people share the WHYs of what worked/didn’t work for them. THAT is the really neat part for me. A simple “I loved it” feels shiny, but “I was sad he didn’t step up quicker to save her” means a ton more.

(The only thing I don’t enjoy about reactions? Well, that’s for another post, but if you can’t say something nice’ly’, then don’t say it at all. I am NOT the devil’s stepdaughter if you don’t like my book. Really.)

Is there a book that you remember loving/hating that you were surprised to find someone you knew having the opposite reaction?
Mine is Wuthering Heights. That book makes me burn with a brilliantly white-hot passion of the not good kind, and I wrote a seven page essay about WHY–to my girlfriend. We were both in our thirties and reading it for the first time, not an assignment. It just had such a visceral effect on me…
