The Power of Your Story


Dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth

The power of your story is in the character’s true emo­tions. The reader wants to be involved with the characters. Wants to be the character. Living the life of the character in her/his dreams. A writer draws the reader in, por­traying per­sonal emo­tions or char­ac­ters’ feel­ings about an expe­ri­ence or sit­u­a­tion.

Have I accom­plished this?

I’ve been work­ing on edits for my his­tor­i­cal sequel and once again my eyes are going crossed. I read, re-read, read again. Is that what I wrote? Does that sen­tence make sense? Is that word really there or is my mind play­ing tricks on me and I think it’s there because it is sup­posed to be there?

I strive to make my intimate scenes beyond just doing the deed. My characters have depth, emotional investments, life-threatening challenges. The reader wants to be in the moment. Feel what the characters feel – emotionally. I try to give this to my readers.

My scenes may be steamy, but hopefully I have written the scene in a way that is not crude.

Hats off to book two in the One and Only Series. THE TRUE ONE. The sequel to Kat and Morgan’s story. I believe champagne is called for.
