Feedback of Outback Fear.

It's a beautiful clear, bright day here today. It's crystal. I could go on about the weather, but hey, who wants to hear about that. lol I wanted to remind you that the release of Outback Fear is 5 and a half weeks away. Yikes. I'm almost prepared.

I wanted to share with you what my editor said about Outback Fear. 

It was hard to edit with my heart in my throat! Outback Fear is a tour de force of suspense and psychological and physical terror.  Savannah is a remarkable heroine readers will love – and cheer for. She truly took back her life, once and for all freeing herself and Amy. What a heart-stopping and satisfying ending to a story of courage and hope.

Valerie Susan Hayward did such a professional job at editing my manuscript. I am completely satisfied and confident of the outcome. I don't think I have ever been so pleased with the editing of a manuscript.

I would also like to say this manuscript almost made it to the shelves in Australia with a traditional publisher. After over an hours conversation with the senior editor on the phone, they didn't know where to place it in the market, Suspense or Romance. 

I think that's why I am so pleased to see it almost here. To share my story with readers, to take them on a journey where hopefully all women will have the courage to stand up for themselves. Not that they should do what Savannah finally does. lol. Women are a resilient species, and we often pull through some of the toughest times in our life. Let's follow our dreams.

I have a busy day ahead. Have a great day, and don't forget. Smile. You know the rest. :)

I think that is one of my major gripes about traditional publishers, there's this huge stumbling block about creating a new genre. What's wrong with Romantic
Suspense? Don't they realise there are thousands of readers out there hungry for such a thing? Cross genre is the way of the future, and if traditional publishers don't wake up to that fact, they're going to miss out big time.

Thank you Tarnya. :)

Sandy, it's not a traditional Romantic Suspense. There is more suspense, and the heroine does not meet the hero until chapter two.
I realise that a lot of readers are seeking cross genres. There was a call out on Goodreads recently for recommendations of Suspense thrillers with a touch of romance.
I'm pretty happy actually with where I'm at. I've got a long way to go, but that's okay. Facebook is buzzing so that's good.
The people are lovely. Truly decent and down to earth.
Okay, got something in the oven. Yikes. lol.
