Writing has become more than a hobby for me, and much less than a job.
I grew up in a small West Texas town and began writing years before I started in the journalism program at my high school. When I became the editor for my junior year, the joke about me was that I couldn’t sign my name in less than 300 words. Nothing has really changed decades later.
Blood of Like Souls, my first novel, took about 16 years from its humble few pages to getting a cover. The second in the series, Tears of Like Souls, took about eight months. I’m not sure how long the third one – tentatively Promises of Like Souls – will take from first word to publication, but it’s due to start printing October 2010. Oddly, the fourth is still a draft but only took me 60 days to complete. I don’t expect it to release until 2013 sometime.
I love writing. This month, Surviving American Healthcare will be released. You can find it on a similar Author Page for Valerie Conrad. The gist is to offer guidance on how patients need to be better prepared for healthcare these days. Go take a peek.
