About two weeks ago I received a call from a lovely editor at Harlequin Mills & Boon in London. She wished to buy my book! Of course, I said, "uh, yeah, go ahead and buy my book." Really, it was a thrill to have this discussion. It's a discussion that every author craves. The Call! Although I have published an ebook and a few short stories, this is the first time I feel like a "real" writer, though I have been writing for many years.
Receiving "The Call" is the most special time in writer's life. Someone out there thinks that what you write is good enough for others to read and they are putting their money into it. So anyone who is writing with the hope/intent of publication, my best advice to you is this: never give up.
I'm off now onto my next book, which will also be a medical romance. Hey with twenty four years of nursing experience, I have a lot to write about!
