I’ve been lucky enough to get a couple of fabulous quotes from fabulous authors for DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN OR SHINE.
Here. Let me show you them.
“Michelle Rowen has created a smart and funny heroine and put her in a world of demons, magic, and sexy guys! This is a series I definitely want to keep reading.” —Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author of Shadow Kiss
“Sassy and smart, engrossing and exhilarating! Rowen’s take of forbidden love and staying true to one’s self (even if you have horns) will have readers screaming for more.” —Heather Brewer, author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
I’ve been doing some mild brainstorming for a new book I want to outline while I’m in between contracted books (I never want to be completely out of contract again if I can help it, and planning ahead is the only way to go). But I hit a major creative wall during the last week and took some time to analyze why that was. I realized I was on the wrong path. I have since adjusted. I have to learn to trust my gut — that is a major theme in my books, after all. Trust your gut. If an idea sounds good but feels wrong, it probably isn’t something I want to spend months of my life on. And if an idea or a genre fills me with happiness at the idea of writing it, then that’s a good sign that it’s the right path. So there ya go. Darkness and mega angst tabled. Humor and entertaining lightness on board. So be it.
In 2009: Fun is in. Misery is out.
And I’ve received 3/4 of my beta reads back on LIVING IN EDEN and the general consensus is that it doesn’t suck. Which is a relief. Other than a few surface changes, this puppy is good to go.
