Almost a Real Book

I just finished reading the copyeditted version of Switchcraft and the story wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

When I started this book way back when I was six months pregnant, the wiring in my brain got all twisted around because I’ve been living with this bone-chilling fear that the story is the worst I’ve ever written. My agent loved it. My editors loved it and so you would think that I’d believe them.

But until I read the manuscript again, I realized that it’s pretty good. There are some areas that need a bit of work. Overall, I think Switchcraft is touching, sexy, funny and honest and I can’t wait for you to read it.

(By the way, it took me five minutes to write the previous sentence because I have a weird thing about praising myself.)

Quick reminder: the sneak peek to “Till Death Do Us Part” (from the anthology, Names I Call My Sister) will only be up for two more weeks! So if you haven’t checked it out, or you haven’t entered the contest, you better get over there!

Cheers,
Mary

  1. Glad to see I’m not the only one who goes through those crazy- I love it! I hate it! ups and downs!Can’t wait to read it- and go to your book signings! Alyson

  2. I hear you both about those ups and downs. Why is it so much easier to believe that someone doesn’t like our work? 🙂 dPS I can’t wait to read it too!

  3. Alyson & Dana: Thanks for understanding my pain. Some people scoff at Danielle Steele who allegedly pays a staff of writers to write her books, but man, it sure would be tempting!Cheers,Mary
