Everything For Love: A Final Thought Of Living Up to Expectations
As I write my last blog post of the Everything For Love Blog Tour, I’m reflecting on my journey while writing the book. Every writing project is an experience for the author, almost like the reverse of reading. To write a book, I must constantly read it through the whole writing process. Most of the time, when I reread a section, I know I’ve done good when I get to the end, experience the blank page, and want more. Of course, I have to write it first. So, I’m actively as much a reader as a writer through the writing process, except a lot of the time I get to a blank page wanting more of the story. The only way to read on is to write more.
I’m also reminded of a time when I had first started the book. I was about a few chapters in, not sure where my writing would take me. I had seen the beautiful cover you see today, and snatched it up since it was my character, Deidre, incarnate in the design. I was traveling on the 4th of July through Northern California on a camping trip in our new camper with my husband. It was exciting to have two new things in my life.
We stopped in a small town in Mendocino County, and I noticed the local library in a historic building. I love local libraries. It can tell so much about a small town when you can check them out. I went inside and looked around. Of course, I was approached by an elderly librarian asking my interests. I told her romance, and that I just was looking around her cute library. I was rather excited about the new cover I had bought for the book I was writing and told her all about my project. I showed her the new cover on my phone.
She said, “That’s a beautiful cover. I hope the inside is just as good.” There was a hint of sarcasm maybe addressing the fact I’d mentioned my books were self-published. I decided then to prove her wrong. The inside of my book was going to match if not surpass the cover.
This was in July 2013. Now, over three years later, after being through the gambit of several drafts, two beta readers, a developmental and copy editor, cleaned up and beautified by an interior formatter and the paperback Createspace edition created by the same cover designer, I present to you, Everything For Love (Time Rogues Book 1). The blood, sweat and tears of three years and a team of people have brought you this book. I hope you enjoy it, and agree with me that the inside surpasses the cover.
