Four years ago, during the grand month of November, I wrote my first novel. It was called Demas’ First Task: The Prophecy of Rob and it’s hidden deep in my hard drive, banished there because it had no plot.
And so I started learning about how to write a book. Because for most people (yes, probably you, too) it doesn’t come naturally. And then I started hanging out with writer people, and I met a hundred awesome and inspiring authors that made me even more passionate about the business. And they also taught me that being published wasn’t the end goal, but just a huge, exciting event along the way. And then I started blogging, and I learned how to write things in a way people connected to. I learned what people liked, and what people didn’t like, and also that you couldn’t please everyone.
And then, with the help of Kristen Lamb and Piper Bayard, I got a job as an editor at Stonehouse Ink.
So, four years later, and four books later (they say it takes four books before a writer is published. Which is exactly true for me.) I was asked by my awesome boss at Stonehouse Ink if I wanted to co-author a series with him.
So unexpected. And so fun.
So we made a deal and wrote a book together. Easy Peasy Dumplin’s Greasy. It certainly wasn’t how I thought my first published book would turn out. It was so . . . painless. =D
Aaron Patterson (or, A-Patt as I like to call him when he isn’t listening) is a phenomenal writer with a head full of ideas. I swear, he has so many ideas that he probably swims in a pool of them at night. And what he’s good at I’m bad at. And what he’s bad at I’m good at. So we’re coming out with a series together and we’re going to kick butt.
You can pre-order our book. It’s called: BREAKING STEELE. Or you can just look at it. It’s so pretty.
