On the Writing Process...

My newest book released yesterday, my fifth publication in less than a year.

Curses, Cats, and Crime: A Love Story, an #EnchantedRockImmortals novella (number 15 in the series.)

Writing a book is hard work. If authors do it right, the process seems easy. Here is what this novella went through to get to the point of release:

  • Draft written November 2020.

  • Vetted through my critique group, one chapter a week.

  • Sent to the Enchanted Rock Immortals team for review, to check for world-build continuity and an editorial read-through.

  • Revise, revise, revise.

  • Went through developmental edit with my editor.

  • Revise, revise, revise.

  • Order my book cover.

  • Write the dedication page, acknowledgements page, and back cover copy.

  • Send complete manuscript to the proofreader.

  • Revise, revise, revise.

  • Send to the formatter.

  • Check formatting for errors. Revise.

  • Upload the book for pre-order.

  • Upload the final manuscript.

  • Publicize the release.


  • Oh, and thank the people who helped support you on your journey. This is Curses, Cats, and Crime: A Love Story's Dedication Page.

Thank you, my sisters. ❤
