SKC: Welcome for the first time as one of my GUEST authors, Sandra. Just glancing over at all the books you've written, it is clear you stay busy. That has to take patience. Tell us how you deal with your patience as a writer.
Sandra: Up until the last year, I've had a really good balance of time spent on the job and time spent with my family, friends, and nonwriting pursuits. The balance has tipped a bit lately because of the social media interactions that all writers are involved in. Some of them I enjoy very, very much. But they do require time, so I'll be adjusting soon. Also, the research load for historical books is heavier than for contemporary. Delightful to slip into the past for several hours a day in historical nonfiction, walking the gardens with Henry VIII or learning how those lovely gowns were cared for. But that takes time, so we've been eating more take-out!
Sandra: What keeps you deep in a book, and what about a particular author's work brings you back to his or her next book?
Okay, folks... Do you see Sandra's questions above? We are looking forward to your responses. I hope you'll be the one to win her wonderful book! I'll repeat her questions one more time, and then we'll wait to hear from you.
1. WHAT KEEPS YOU DEEP IN A BOOK?
2. WHAT ABOUT A PARTICULAR AUTHOR'S WORK BRINGS YOU BACK TO HIS OR HER NEXT BOOK?
Congratulations to Nora St Laurent of Suwanee, GA. You'll be hearing from Sandra soon!
