For my August blog post at InspyRomance.com, I asked some of my author friends how long it takes them to write some of their books. Find out what they say in today’s blog post.
As for me, my latest novel, Call You Home, has taken me a few years to complete, from draft to polished book. From the time I wrote Know You More, the first book in the Savannah Sweethearts series, back in 2014-2015, I knew that chef and restaurateur Piper Peyton was going to get her own book. Unfortunately she had to wait ten Savannah Sweethearts years, or four real life years, before her story is published.
I outlined Call You Home in 2016, wrote the draft entirely by pen on paper in 2016-2017, took a hiatus in 2018, and then I began revising it in 2019. When I was done with the book, it went to my copyeditor-proofreader, plus two other proofreaders, and also a few of my trusted early readers. From concept to publication-ready, it spanned three years of my life.
I am giving away a copy of my latest novel, Call You Home (Savannah Sweethearts Book 10) to a random commenter, so stop by and don’t miss out on the giveaway!
Joyfully in Jesus,
