Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first. ~Frederick B. Wilcox
Yes, I’m having one of those days with doubt. I’ve turned in my contracted books and am out of contract. This means…time to go out on proposal, which is both an exciting and frightening time. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but the publishing industry is in a bit of a flux.
I golfed last week for the first time in about five years–and I was very doubtful before. But hey…I guess it all comes back. While I wasn’t a star by any means, I did all right. Sure, my slice returned, but then I remembered how to deal with it.
Publishing is like golfing. You need the right equipment, a good attitude, and tools to deal with that slice. A stiff drink doesn’t hurt, either. But no matter what…you have to take the shot, or you’ll never make it to the clubhouse and the amazing brunch.
So this summer I’m taking the shot…and I’ll let you know how it goes. For now, I’ve finally seen the back cover copy of CONSUMED – and here it is:
Sometimes You Mate For Life
Katie Smith is the best of her class, part of an elite hunting force trained to eliminate werewolves from the hills of Western Virginia. She’s good at it because she has the kind of focus and drive that won’t back down no matter how steep the odds. Call it southern sass. Whatever it is, there’s no denying her willingness to risk everything for the only man she’s ever cared about–a man on the verge of losing his very humanity. . .
Sometimes You Mate To Stay Alive
For the past ten years Jordan Pride has dedicated his life to protecting his people from a deadly shifter virus. But in a rare moment of distraction, Jordan’s guard drops just long enough for his fate to take an irreversible twist. Unless the woman he loves surrenders everything to him, again and again, under a full moon rising. . .
