Writing the first post for a new blog is a bit like starting a new novel. Here I sit, staring at a blank page. Again. It feels sort of familiar…
But this time I’m not trying to create a great hook to lead the reader into my story. This time it’s about sharing my excitement with you.
Three of my novellas were just launched as ebooks. They belong to the series, Sheikhs of the Golden Triangle. This series is best described as romantic suspense with paranormal overtones, and the heat level is hot.
Writing stories is great fun, but I’ve discovered a passion for creating worlds, kingdoms and even geographic locations. Soon I’ll add a map to my website showing the lay of the land in this fictitious grouping of kingdoms. I love being able to place an oasis here, and a fortress there. Perhaps the Golden Triangle is skirted on one side by mountains? No problem. Which country is landlocked, and which one lies along the coast of a sapphire sea?
I wrote close to two dozen stories in the past two decades, and they remain in varying degrees of completion in my drawers, on computer hard drives, and even in boxes under my bed.
Publication was a long time coming. If the process is anything like the maturing of a fine wine, then my stories should be ripe and rich enough to provide the consumer’s palate with a unique experience.
There is no more satisfying feeling than moving forward with a long-held dream. If you have had a desire to write, paint, sing, go back to school, or start a new career, I encourage you not to wait as long as I did.
There’s no time like now!
