Please help me to welcome author Angela Joseph to the blog today.
Welcome Angela, what is next for you?
I have so many goals and plans for the future, that
it would be easy for me to become sidetracked if I didn’t do what my coach,
Suzanne Lieurance always says – have 3 major goals. Therefore, my goals are:
revision ofComing Out of Egypt. This is a Christian novel dealing with two
sisters who were sexually abused by their father. The older sister kills the
father by accident, but with the help of their former teacher and a detective,
the girls are able to put their troubled past behind them and begin a new life.
I’m now doing what I could have done a long
time ago – which is taking the advice of an editor I met at a conference. She
suggested that I center the story around the teacher and the detective and make
my protagonist a minor character. That didn’t sit very well with me at first,
but after querying a number of places with no success, I’m turning the story
into a romance between the teacher and the detective and really enjoying it.
other goal is to continue marketing Women
For All Seasons through author visits at bookstores, book clubs and church
magazines in order to build my freelance writing portfolio.
Thanks to all the fans and readers who have followed the tour. Please stop by often for tips on writing, more great author interviews, and book reviews for both adults and kids.
