I don’t know about you, but I am glad it’s Wednesday, and time for our weekly writing tips!
This past week was rough. Our daughter sprained her ankle, so we’ve spent lots of time seeing two different doctors in addition to our weekly visit to St. Jude.
However, I’m excited to announce that Patricia Bradley is joining us today! I met her at a writing retreat last year and loved the workshop that she taught and chatting with her at lunch. She was a big encourager to me last year, and helped me to push myself to finish The Seer and seek publication.
Thank you for joining us, Patricia!
Name: Patricia Bradley
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Latest Novel: Justice Betrayed
Write what you love. If you write what you love, you will stay excited about your writing.
This is so true! When I first started writing, I was working on a chick lit series. I never finished that series, because deep down it wasn’t what I loved.
Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers:
Keep learning the craft and don’t give up. I wrote for over thirty years before my novel was published. But I kept learning the craft and writing…what if I’d quit at year thirty? If God calls you to write, He will get you published…in His timing. When God opened the door, I was ready to go through it.
Being patient isn’t always easy, but God’s timing is always perfect. Don’t give up!
It’s Elvis Week in Memphis, and homicide Detective Rachel Sloan isn’t sure her day could get any stranger when aging Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas asks to see her. But when he produces a photo of her murdered mother with four Elvis impersonators–one of whom had also been murdered soon after the photo was taken–she’s forced to reevaluate. Is there some connection between the two unsolved cases? And could the recent break-in at Vic’s home be tied to his obsession with finding his friend’s killer?
When yet another person in the photo is murdered, Rachel suddenly has her hands full investigating three cases. Lieutenant Boone Callahan offers his help, but their checkered romantic past threatens to get in the way. Can they solve the cases before the murderer makes Rachel victim number four?
