Dragon Moon - my collaboration with Glass Bridge Music!

Glass Bridge Music Collaboration

I am so excited about my newest project, Dragon Moon!

It all started when Chrystor of Glass Bridge Music approached me with an intriguing idea – if I would write a book, Glass Bridge would produce a music CD to complement my story.

I couldn’t resist. I said “YES”.

The Query Letter

Now that I’ve completed my first novel, Lightning on the Levee, I just need to send it to a publisher and it will become a bestseller, right?

Wrong!

There’s still a lot of work to do. “What kind of work?” you ask. Well, I’ve been researching what else needs to be done ever since I finished Lightning on the Levee a couple of months ago. I truly didn’t expect it to take so long just to get ready to start sending queries to literary agents. Here are some things that every author has to decide, and do, in order to get their book published. ...  read more
