For the first time in my writing life I find myself in front of my trusty computer without a plan of what I want to write. I have been in the business of creating fictional heroines, and the men who love them, for a number of years. I have a readership that spans 100 countries and 21 languages, but what I didn’t have in these years is a wonderful way, an almost immediate way, to connect and dialogue with those who love books as much as I do.
After much urging from friends, family and readers, I take these first steps into cyber space. I didn’t want to just put up a site and look at it once in a while. I want to interact with you who take the time to visit me here. You’ll notice that, right now, the page is very basic. We are just constructing the blog and will continue to work on it for the next little while. By the way, if you have any suggestions, I would love to have them.
Currently, not only is this blog under construction, but I have just finished creating a facebook page; laceydancerauthor and a twitter; laceydancer@LaceyTheAuthor. The reason I popped author into the name is that my pen name seems to be all over the internet in some very interesting areas.
However, all the cyber work aside, I have just finished uploading a book titled Choices to Amazon. Life has demanded my attention for the last ten years in ways I could not have predicted. Writing was just not possible.
Choices is an enhanced reprint of a book, Silent Enchantment, that was published in 1990 by Meteor for their Kismet line. You will notice the term ‘enhanced reprint’. What I mean by that is this book was written prior to much of the current technology. Also, the rabid behavior of the media was not as common as it is now. Technology played only a minor role in this story but the effect of the paparazzi on public figures wasn’t minor at all. As I was improving on these issues, I also added in the edges and stresses that now exist in many of today’s personal relationships.
The plan is to have Choices available through Amazon, both for Kindle and in book form, in time for the holidays. The design and printing teams available at Amazon have made the challenge of improving on Silent Enchantment with the new version, Choices, a delightful experience.
I have always valued the opinions and suggestions given to me by those who read my books. There are always ways to improve, to make things more exciting and just plain fun by listening to new ideas from new sources. I can’t wait to hear yours.
