Monday's Muse~Friends' Debuts
These lovely covers are from books by my friends that are releasing next month. As their release dates loom just around the corner they have been inspiring me more and more. Jessica Subject's romantic sci-fi tale, Celestial Seduction releases July 1st, Denise Grover Swank's paranormal mystery, Twenty-Eight And A Half Wishes releases July 15th, and Eisley Jacobs's middle grade fantasy, Born To Be A Dragon, Releases July 20th. These ladies have inspired me not only because they are my friends and are fantastic, supportive people, but because they are outstanding writers as well. Their grasp of the writing craft is something I aspire to.
During the first three weeks of July on my critique group's blog, the Critique Sisters Corner, we'll be interviewing one of these fabulous ladies each week to chat about their novels. Be sure to stop by CSC starting July 1st for the first interview. The success of my friend's never fails to inspire me and make me smile. Good things do still happen to good people and that's something we should celebrate. Here's hoping good things happen to each and every one of you.
Do any of you have good news you'd like to share? It doesn't matter how big or how small. Sometimes we have to be reminded to celebrate the little things and the steps along the way that bring us closer to our goals. What inspired you'd last week?
Thank you for sharing news about my upcoming release! When I first went online in search of writing blogs, yours was one of the first I followed. I've always been inspired by everything you post on both blogs.
And I'm so excited for your release. Can't wait for you to reveal the cover. :)
That's awesome that you have so many friends debuting. My good news? Just that I'm squeezing in the time to write regularly now and getting through this round of revisions.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing these great author's Heather! Friday, July 1st, we'll meet Jessica Subject. Join us on Critique Sister's Corner! Have a brilliant day!ReplyDelete
July is going to be a great book review month on CSC thanks to you, Heather! I can't wait to interview Eisley! What inspired me last week? Amazing writers entering Shelley Watters first-page, agent-judged contest on her blog. Entrants got to hop around to each others' blogs and critique each others' first pages, then refine their own before today's official entry into the contest. There are some beautiful writers out there!ReplyDelete
Whatever it was that inspired me, it got me excited about the climax and ending of my third book. Celebrating a week off! Yay!ReplyDelete

Congratulations to your friends. It's so lovely to have tangible evidence of your creativity. I'm looking forward to reading the interviews.ReplyDelete
I wish I had good news to share. I'm still working on my WIP. It's slow going. While I'm tempted to rush through a draft, I know that I don't produce my best work when I do so. So while I envy you and your friends for having finished products, I can only hope that my day comes soon.
Jessica, that is so sweet of you, thank you so much! I had no idea. :) And thank you for the excitement over my release too!ReplyDelete
