Did you know that I began my authorship in the paranormal genre?
Romance wasn’t a genre I read at all when I dove into Twilight. A friend urged me to read it anyway, and something about the way Stephenie Meyer pulled me into the story made me devour all three books. After finishing them, my first thought was: “I want her to write books about angels too!”
Then: “Would she if I asked? No. Of course not.”
Then: “Wait a minute. I can do it. And I might could add a tad more steam than she has in her books?”
Then, finally: “Hey! I can write a new adult paranormal book about angels!”
So I did. I wasn’t sure if my book was worthy of publication, so I didn’t take my chances on “going indie.” Instead, I queried agents and publishing houses, until a medium-sized romance house pulled Shattering Halos out of their slush pile and accepted it.
was released by The Wild Rose Press on February 22nd of 2014. I could hardly contain myself, and we celebrated with mimosas at my day job that morning. Today, two years later, it has 4.4 stars on Amazon and 133 reviews, so I must have done something right. Right…? *blinks, unsure*
I wanted to give you a heads up
that for a few days my publisher is offering Shattering Halos at 99 cents on Amazon
. As always, I would love your help in spreading the word.
