Tips For Aspiring Authors
I get asked for advice for aspiring a lot and my answer is always the same: write everyday. None of us begin writing for publication with the idea that we want to languish in sales and never make it. Of course not. If we didn’t care about having readers, we would write things and leave them on our computer. We want to be successful. And if there is one thing I know about how successful writers became successful it was that they worked on their craft every day.
If you want to be published, treat yourself like you are a published writer. Make deadlines. Keep to them. Writing is tricky. It is both an art and a career. If you want it to be a job, treat it like. Go to it at the same time every day and make the commitment to doing so. Go to the blogs of some of your favorite bestselling authors. What are they talking about doing that day? They’re writing.
We can’t write once every so often and expect to make a book out of it. Our characters demand more than that from us. If you want to tell their stories, tell them. Don’t let them float around in your head with the idea that some day you’ll put them down. How many people do you know with half a book written? I would bet a ton. Not everyone can write a book, can be an author. If you can be, you have to do the work.
Write every day. Because I want to read your book on my Kindle. I want to lose myself in the world you created. I can’t wait to do so.
Gabriel Ward has no problem with the fact that he’s an Outsider. Hell, he’s always known he was different. What he takes issue with is the idea he has to follow any destiny at all. He’s taken care of himself-and others-since birth. There’s no way he has to start following rules now.
Loraine Peacock can speak to animals. Other than that she thinks she’s just a regular woman making her way in the world. She figures its not that weird. Many people have unusual abilities.
But when Gabriel and Loraine are forced together by a destiny he denies and she is ignorant of, they will both finally have to accept their Outsider legacy and help the others in their quest to defeat the ultimate evil—a demon bent on world destruction. That is, if they can both survive to find their way to the most important part of their destiny: love.
“Are you going to tell me what happened to you? You just stood there and let that wave slam into you. I thought you were dead but Futon knew you were alive.”
Futon? He regarded the dog. A medium sized border collie with black spots stared back at him. His heart sped up. He‘d heard that name for a dog before. In fact, it was the same damn dog.
“I know you.” He pointed at the creature. “But the last time I saw you was with an old woman on Magazine Street in New Orleans.”
Gabriel had been working for a shady lingerie storeowner on the bad side of Magazine Street at the time. Trying to find out what Sebastian wanted with the man, he would later uncover that the demon had employed Trent, the owner, to kill virgins by bleeding them to death. Gabriel still didn‘t fully understand how it benefited Sebastian and he wasn‘t sure he ever would. On his second day, he‘d been hassled by an old woman on the street who‘d told him Sebastian was in New Jersey and that he needed to hurry up and get there.
She‘d spoken of fate and a lot of mumbo-jumbo he hadn‘t understood. It had turned out that she was right and he‘d high-tailed it off to New Jersey to help stop Sebastian‘s assault on the Outsiders. The woman had been with Futon.
The woman shook her head. “There are lots of border collies around this area. You must have seen a different one because Futon never leaves me.”
As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.
Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.
She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
