Hurricane be damned. Almost three years ago I started writing about an artist character named Adele. I remember thinking, I like this girl. She has potential. A lot has happened since then, including launching Distortion today. Sandy and her devastation can’t stop this story. The hard work has already been done. It has a life now–so does Adele.
I went by Hastings books where they had signs posted for the launch party on Saturday and everyone was so upbeat about the book. What great support. Mostly, I was thrilled to see my book on the Mystery shelf under “S.” These days, a launch seems like a formality. But it’s a time to be grateful and a time to share how I got from Point A-potential, to Point B-publication.
My friend, Leslee Ballard hada local book column and was kind enough to interview me about the process.
