Hi Romance Junkies readers! Sorry this is so late but I work on Wednesdays and just got home. What, work you say? You didn’t realize that some authors actually have to work to pay the bills? I bet you thought that once we get published we’re instantly rich and work for us is sitting in front of a computer typing up best sellers while munching on chocolate and drinking sweet tea all day. I wish! LOL
I’ve had a best seller, my first book published with Whiskey Creek Press, “CUPID’S ARROW” was on their best sellers list for two consecutive months! You can check out a blurb and excerpt at my Debbie Wallace website.
The fact is, very few of us actually have the luxury of giving up our real jobs to devote our days to writing. It can take years to get to that stage, unless we have spouses who make enough money for us to stay at home. Or, if we’re really lucky, Oprah picks up a copy, reads it and loves it and mentions it on her show. She does have the midas touch:)
Writing is a hobby for me and I write evenings and weekends. I’ve been penning stories since I was a kid, it’s always been my passion, even if getting published wasn’t my main objective. It was a kind of therapy for me, in many ways.
When my daughter and niece got their hands on one of my stories they convinced me to submit to a publisher so I did. Two months later I was stunned and thrilled to be offered a contract. And the rest is history.
My favorite part of writing is, believe it or not, the editing part because it only makes my story better. I also love seeing my characters come to life with every new book cover. I’m going to try and add my newest book cover, “THE COWBOY WAY” but if it doesn’t show up you can check it out at Romance with an Attitude. The book comes out on April 15th with Whiskey Creek Press Torrid and is my 3rd torrid romance with them. It’s my first sexy cowboy read.
Blurb – An escaped convict driven by revenge complicates the lives of a sexy cowboy and the rancher’s daughter he’s trying to protect.
