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.


  • RELEASE DAY!


  • 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. ❤
