What Excites a Writer? Honestly, have you ever given much thought to that question? Well, you may be shocked to realize that it really isn’t necessarily the money we get you when you buy the book. Let’s face it, our take on one book sale is actually pretty small when you think of the personal outlay we have to make as an indie author. But if not for the money, what is it?
For me, personally, I love seeing the project come together. An author is looking at 9-12 months worth of work to get a book to you, the reading audience. We are just as excited to see the final product as you are! For me, the cover art is a critical turning point. When I see the cover art, I swoon like a schoolgirl with her first crush.
In the very near future, I’m going to start talking about my latest offering. The book is called Crimson Tassels. It takes place on a farm in Illinois and centers around a farmhouse possessed by the imprisoned spirit of a woman who died there. The spirit, after watching her family massacred day after day for thirty years, goes a little crazy. She needs another victim to take her place.
Look for Crimson Tassels to be available on or around August 15th! I sure enjoyed writing it, I hope you enjoy reading it. After all, that is what we write the books for in the first place.
