Every once in a while though, a book just clicks. You finish and you feel good about it. That was the case with FORSAKEN, released yesterday.
But even then, you wait to see if you’re right that this one works. First my editor said she “love, love”d it. She’s never “love, love”d a book before. Then my agent. Then RT reviewer Terri Dukes compared it to TV and book series, Longmire.
As the reviews started to come in, I breathed a sigh of relief. When a book is close to your heart, you realize you might be wrong about it. You might be too close to it to be the best judge. You start second guessing yourself. Or at least I do.I write by the seat of my pants, never knowing where I’m going or how it will end. So that leaves a lot of room for self-doubt.
