Progress

Where's the story at?


The final proofreading of "Saving Toby" is finished. I am working on small adjustments where the proofer made notes.

I got my first written review:

"Saving Toby is a great debut novel from Suzanne McKenna Link. This modern day romance tells the story of Toby and Claudia and how they endure the ups and downs of a relationship. I laughed, cried, and rejoiced, never wanting to put this book down!"

Next up is publication: Cover art, conversion to eBook format, uploading to Amazon, and ultimately a printed version.

I visited the library here in my hometown. Next to the new DVDs, they now have a "Local Authors" area. Two of the books on the shelves are by women I currently work with. I will see my book up there someday, too.

Until then, I work diligently at the tiresome, daunting task of finding a reputable publisher.

Wish me luck!

Anyone serious about reaching a goal needs to have a strategy—because ideas without a plan of action are merely wishful thinking.
I had a plan, had it all mapped out, and revved up and ready to roll, I sat down to write. I wrote a few paragraphs, but suddenly I had no interest in telling the story I’d started.  The next day I sat down to try a new story, but my protagonist, suitcase in hand, waved goodbye and sped off to the airport. 
After a couple of weeks, I’d written nothing compelling. I literally felt empty, like I had nothing interesting or meaningful to share. Stressed and depressed, I started to throw darts at the whole idea of a writi…
