My first novel, Impetuous, will be released this Friday, 8/26/11 through The Wild Rose Press. (www.thewildrosepress.com) I’m getting more and more excited as the day gets closer.
After reading the above, I should say, my first published novel will be released. It’s certainly not the first novel I wrote. That book will never see the light of day, at least not in its current form. It will need a lot of revision before it’s ever ready to come out into the sunlight. I’ve learned a lot since that book was written. Things like point of view, voice, action vs. reaction, passive voice, and show don’t tell just to name a few. I have to admit the first time I was told “show don’t tell” I was at a complete loss. My first reaction was what do you mean don’t tell, I’m telling a story.
It seems like it has taken a long time to get to this point and other times, it seems like it could have come a lot sooner if I didn’t waste so much time doing other things instead of focusing on my writing. Another example of hindsight being 20/20, I guess.
Now the sales plug --You can purchase Impetuous on The Wild Rose Press website in both digital and book form and it will also be available in digital format on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
