The REAL fun is about to begin!

The fruits of my labor are about to come to fruition!!
My book will be ready for sale VERY SOON!!

It’s been a fantastic, three-year ride – with ups and downs, highs and lows and fear and excitement. I’ve been through them all and I would do it – and in fact, am doing it – again!

I’ve started the outline for the SECOND NIKI BROOKS MYSTERY – called Beach House. More to come on that later . . .

Looking back on my writing experience thus far, I don't think I totally comprehend what I’ve accomplished.  I wrote a 145,000 word NOVEL!! And I didn’t have an inkling of how to do it when I began.

That’s where all the mixed emotions come into play. One day I would giggle through page-after-page of a writing frenzy, hence happy, elated – and another day I would sit staring at my computer, not able to think of a thing to write (that didn’t totally stink), hence – fear.

There were times when I thought my writing was right on the money, having read about how to properly structure a plot, how to develop character arcs, create scene conflict, determine theme, set the pace and produce a great story!

Later,  while editing what I’d written, I would panic thinking my story was totally off base and not something anyone other than me or my family would ever read.

I’ve been all over the map during my journey and somehow, I’ve reached my final destination. It’s now time to deliver the goods!!

I’ve got one final read-through to make sure my team and I have caught every possible error and then it will be time to set this story free!! 

SOON . . . my first Niki Brooks mystery will be available through, Barnes & Noble, iUniverse Bookstore, and through this website!!
I can't wait for you to read it!!
