What if…I publish three books in just over a year?

If someone had told me when I started this journey to be a published author, that I would have my first three books published in just over a year, I would have thought they were overly optimistic. But it happened!The third book in my Dance of Love series, Dance to a Gypsy Beat, was published on 4 August 2016. Like the other erotic romances I’ve written in this series, I loved writing this book as well. As in the others, the divine feminine appears to help the heroine on her journey.

What if…something unexpected happens?

Do you remember the timeless musical The Sound of Music? Where the Captain and Maria finally reveal their love for each other as they stand in the rotunda in the moonlight? And she sings, For somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good… Well that’s exactly how I felt on 14 February… somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good! Dancing Queen was voted Readers Choice Best Book and Best Cover 2015 in Luminosity Publishing’s Awards. Woo-hoo! What a wonderful Valentine’s Day surprise.

What if…readers like my book?

This is a biggie for authors. Will people like my book? Will they get me?
Since I write love stories laced with the divine feminine and with a twist in the ending, I wasn’t sure how readers would respond.
Writing a book is like making an investment in your future and honest reviews are indicators whether you’ve made the right investment.

What if…this is my Fifty Shades?

I had to laugh when the Gold Coast Bulletin article appearing soon after my book launch referred to Dancing Queen as Fifty Shades of Diane. Although not quite the case, the universe’s irony was not lost on me at all.
