How-To-Tips for Aspiring Writers: 

Advice on how to break into the series-writing business.

1.    Read and study books in the series line you are targeting. Notice that each series has a different tone and different guidelines. Make sure you understand them so that your story can meet reader expectations.
2.    Find and hone your voice. This is the unique way that you tell a story. Honor your voice and stay true to it.
3.    Be creative with the genre tropes but not so creative that your work is unmarketable.
4.     Be persistence but professional. Keep submitting. Don’t give up on the first try.
5.    Be teachable. If you’re given feedback from an editor, agent, or a respected critique partner, heed it.  Keep honing your craft.

Liz Cantrell is terrified when she receives a call from a man holding her newlywed sister captive—and she's convinced her sketchy brother-in-law is involved. Willing to pay any price for her sister's freedom, Liz flies to Niagara Falls with the ransom: an uncut diamond necklace worth millions.


But the moment she lands, a handsome, world-weary Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent takes her into custody. Blake Fallon's determined to catch a ruthless diamond smuggler—and the pretty antiques dealer trying to save her sister could be just the break his case needs. But as they team up to rescue Liz's sister and trap the criminal mastermind, a desperate standoff will threaten everything they hold precious—including their lives.
