What's the Point, Surrender?
It's almost time! I'm so excited I need to run around the yard a few times each hour. Seriously, the galleys are done, the reviews have been requested, the cover art is, well, in progress. A little hold up on the photograph being used for the background.
Now the doubts begin to creep in. What if? What if the reviewers don't like it? Not enough romance for the romance folks? Not enough mystery for the who-dun-it buffs? Characters developed enough? Technical details accurate? How about the lighthouse experts around the country (the ones that are also romance/mystery readers, that is.) What if they think it's dumb?
Oh, and those paranormal elements. Does it have enough to qualify mentioning it? Are the ghosts real, or imagined in Point Surrender?
Yep, the heebie-jeebies come calling once the book is completely out of your sweating little fingers.
Do me favor. If you get the book and like it, please tell me. If you don't like it, at least be nice.
