On a different note, and a personal one, my husband had a heart attack a week ago today. He’s now sitting here next to me on the couch, with our mini Beagle curled up beside him. I’m feeling incredibly fortunate.
So, go right now and hug a person you love.
Then go buy my book. And if you already have it, buy a gift copy and send it to someone who wants to read a feel-good story.
Amazon carries The Wild One’s Hunger
I am pleased to share my space today with Ericca Thornhill. We’ve known each other for years, and I am proud to count her as a friend and am honored to have her as a critique partner. Her first book has been contracted by The Wild Rose Press, so I asked her to share a few words with us about her work. Ericca, welcome aboard!
Lori, thanks for inviting me to post on your blog, it’s quite a treat.
I really enjoy your writing, so it means a lot to me to get a chance
to write to your fans!Do you remember the days when writing was just fun to do? My sisters
and I would spend time in our room writing plays, with a part for each
of us. Once my sister got a diary with a beautiful brown binding and a
little key, and we took Mark Twains’ Adam and Eve story to new lows,
with the humor of middle schoolers. We illustrated our story as Adam
and Eve learned to live with the dinosaurs.
I think that most writers start this way. Writing is in our blood,
it’s something that we do for fun. I never knew that I was a writer,
isn’t that strange? I thought that I was a reader, and a drawer, and
a scientist. If someone had said to me that I was a writer, I would
have wondered what they were talking about. Even though I submitted
to the school literary journal, I wrote for fun, I never thought I’d
try to make it into anything.And as I grew, great insights would fill my mind, and I’d stay up all
night writing novels. It only took me about five novels to make me
realize that I was a writer. I guess that sometimes things are so
obvious that you can’t see them clearly.And now as I write, the frenzied midnight writing sessions and middle
school humor has calmed down a bit. I’ve re-learned a lot of those old
rules that I never paid attention to in high school, and reached
success by looking for what the Wild Rose Press wanted. Changing from
a nonwriter to a writer has changed how I write. But I never stopped
writing.I wish you good writing time.
Ericca Thornhill has published her first romantic fantasy novella with
the Wild Rose Press. Entitled “The Wild One’s Hunger,” it delves into
the dream of one perfect soul made just for you. It can be ordered at:
