There are lots of “benchmark” moments that I celebrate as an author on the journey to publication. Seeing the book’s cover for the first time is one of my favorites!

Celebrate BOOKSing Day with a New Book (or Two)!

Boxing Day?  Try BOOKSing Day!  (Yes, I’m excited enough to write really bad puns!)

All of Your Business launches today, topping off another fantastic year of writing & publishing for the Greene Team!  This is Book Two in my contemporary romance series, Richer in Love.

To celebrate this big event, we’ve dropped the price of its “older sibling” – She Hates Me Not – to just 99 cents through New Year’s Day.  Two eBooks for two bucks?  Happy New Year, indeed!

And if you’re a member of Kindle Unlimited, you can download both books right now.

These eBooks are available through Amazon, and even though they’re published only in the Kindle format at this time, Amazon’s free app for non-Kindle devices works great!  I use it on my iPhone all the time.

Paperbacks of both novels are available, too, if that’s how you roll.  Click here to visit my Amazon Author Central page with all my books in various formats.

However you choose to spend it, enjoy your Boxing Day, and thanks for reading!

Countdown to Book Launch! 10…9…8…

Just 10 days until All of Your Business arrives at Amazon on Boxing Day! (That’s December 26 for the Yanks.)

This contemporary romance picks up six months after She Hates Me Not.  The special pre-order sale price is just 99 cents!

All of Your Business is especially near and dear to my heart because of its smart and hardworking heroine, Didi Velasquez.  Didi was raised in San Antonio (where I lived for 14 years), so I got to revisit the puro spirit of a city I adore.  Viva Fiesta!

Didi is also my first Latina protagonist.  Researching her vibrant, family-oriented culture was an absolute delight!  Quinceañeras.  Telenovelas.  Concha blancas.  La chancla.  As with the Cajun culture in She Hates Me Not, my awareness of and respect for the Hispanic community deepened while I wrote this novel.

Pre-order your copy to join Didi on her first visit to London as she brings her buena cara energy to Ben Richmond’s all-business world.

Free free to share this post, and thanks for reading!  #gratitude

Does Your Brain Get in the Way of Editing?

One of my favorite editing techniques is to read my manuscripts as Amazon intended: on my Kindle.

I’m not a fan of any particular e-reader.  I happen to own a Kindle, and I still love to purchase the printed word.  (My bookshelves are proof of that.)

Love ’em or hate ’em, e-readers are here to stay.  So, I do my readers a service if I edit my book in all possible formats – electronic as well as print.

Throughout the writing process, I’ll email my manuscript (formatted in Microsoft Word) directly to my Kindle. By “changing the frame” of how my eyes see the words, I’m more likely to notice sneaky typos, clunky sentences, and draggy paragraphs.

Why does this matter?  Click the link to read a scientific explanation.

My Beta Readers received Beta Buckets with a printed proof copy of All of Your Business around two months before publication

Familiarity breeds mistakes.  The brain is a bit too smart for its own good – at least when writers try to edit their own work.  The brain swaps letters and plugs in the holes that need to be unswapped and unplugged.

So what happens when my own eyes aren’t enough?

When possible, I hire a professional editor.  It’s expensive but worth every penny.

I also distribute proof copies of my manuscript to my team of Beta Readers.  These are folks who read in my genre and have the time to consider a series of broad content questions.  I also ask them to hunt for typos.  (When editing 100,000+ words, it absolutely takes a village.)

For me, Beta Readers are invaluable.  They bring their own unique perspectives and skills, and my novels are better because of them.

This wraps up my answer to the original question: “What’s your writing process?” For those of you who’ve followed this blog series, thank you for your time and attention. With two more novels currently on my authorial plate, look for future posts about writing, book launches, sales, and more!

And to all those who made it through #NaNoWriMo: CONGRATULATIONS!  Even if your novel isn’t finished, you’re off to a great start.  And starting is often the hardest part!
