There are a lot of blogs lined up for a tour blast tomorrow. In the meantime, here's an excerpt to tide you over!
What inspired this story?
I attended a writing conference in Kansas City in 2012. I thoroughly enjoyed several workshops presented by agent Mary Sue Seymour. In one of her workshops, she encouraged writers to find a great, eye catching first line with which to start a story. In that class, she had us all come up with opening lines. I came up with “Stop the wedding!” “Wrong Place, Right Time” stems from that one line and opening scene that I created in that class. That particular scene got moved back farther into the book, but it still exists! And once I got home from the conference, I couldn’t help but finish the story I started!
Tell us about the editing process, were there any surprises?
Oh, just a few dozen! The initial shock and awe was the announcement from my editor that she believed after the story was edited that it would no longer be a full length, paperback printable novel. Instead, it would likely be a novella and released in ebook format only. This was disheartening to me, but I agreed with her that we needed to go with story and do what was best with it. The first round of edits returned with red computer comments and changes stuffed into every margin. I’ve never seen so much red! And though it was a grueling process, I learned a lot about my writing style, what I can do better, and how to make things flow. I’ve never claimed to be an editor. Reading through my own stuff and seeing it for what it is and not for what I meant it to be is really hard. And that’s why I take editing advice very seriously from those who I believe know what they are doing!
