The Road So Far...

Yesterday I promised I would start talking about my book I am working to publish rather than the projects that keep distracting me. The first book I plan on publishing is the first, well technically second book, I have ever written. The first book I threw away and deleted in a fit of raging self-doubt. The second book I have been much more level headed about though like everyone I have these nagging doubts that I am a hack. What are you going to do?

Dark Corners is the name of my book and it falls into the psychological thriller/mystery category with a paranormal element. It is not like the PNR I have been working on recently. This is a stand alone book about a woman, Ella Reynolds, whose life has fallen apart making her question everything including her own sanity. It is a dark tale filled with twists and the seemingly unexplainable.

Right now I am in the process of securing an editor who I feel will be perfect for me. Now let me just say I am fairly level headed (raging self-doubt aside) and I do not believe in signs. But my goal for the week was to find an editor and I was literally looking at several Web sites when I noticed an editor was following me on Twitter. Not only that but she tweeted to me about my profile which is "Aspiring writer, current ruler of cubicle one and parts of France" and she got it. Anyway I emailed her and I think it is going to be good! Yay!

My sister, who is a graphic designer, is working on my cover and thank goodness for that. I would have driven anyone else crazy by now with all of my oh one more idea, oh look at this cover I really like the font emails I have been sending her. And now I have a plan for a book trailer and a musician I know who said he would work on a song for it. Not to mention my new writing group which is full of the most wonderful, funny, supportive people.

Basically, I am a lucky girl and very thankful to have so many wonderful supportive people in my life.
