Tips for those looking to get their work published/break into the industry.


It’s important to write your book before you pitch it. I’ve met many aspiring authors who have written a few chapters, pitched the idea to an editor or agent, received a request for the complete manuscript, and then not been able to finish the project.  My advice: don’t open a door you won’t be able to walk through. It becomes a missed opportunity and makes a poor first impression.  When the request comes – and it will – the manuscript should be ready to send.

EXPECTING—AND IN DANGER 
Attacked in her classroom, widowed teacher Ariel Martin's only thought is for her unborn child. When her student's brother, rookie K-9 officer Tristan McKeller, and his faithful dog save her life, she can't thank him enough. She knows Tristan won't rest until she's safe, but she doesn't want him or his police colleagues digging into her dangerous past. After all, the only person who would want to hurt her is dead…or is he? With her and her child's life on the line, she'll have to trust Tristan with her secrets if she wants to finally get the fresh start she's been desperately seeking.
