A Few More Deets on Souled…

This has been such a great week for me and I owe it all to my WANA sista, Bridgette Booth!

She helped me pry my fingers off my closely-held WIP and held it up to the light for all to see.

For me, and probably most writers, that’s a big step. After eating, drinking, and sleeping with the characters for many, many moons, the act of talking about the novel in public and acknowledging its upcoming release, makes it all so very real.  Knowing that months of hard work will soon draw to an end is, quite frankly, a little scary.  It is probably similar to watching our children leave home for the first time.  We push them out of the nest, hoping we’ve given them enough love and nurturing to fly on their own.  We’ll still be there for them, cheering them on, but ultimately we have to let them go and move on.

Sadness and elation – two emotions that are creeping up on me as I write this. But, it’s part of the writer’s life, a life I fully embrace.

Today, Bridgette has once again generously opened the door to her blog, this time to ask a few questions about me, my writing, and my upcoming novel, Souled.  Are you ready for some answers?  Then please join me over at Bridgette Booth’s digs for a little conversation.

In the upcoming weeks, be sure to come back, because I’ll be posting excerpts from the novel, interesting information on soul attachments, the making of the book cover  (a huge thank you to Crystalyn Abercrombie, artist and tattoo expert!), and other fun stuff!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. Diana — thanks so much for opening up about your writing and the inspiration behind Souled. Enjoyed every minute of it, and I owe Angela W. a hug for matching us up for the WANA book tour. 🙂
    Hugs,
    Bridgette

  2. Woot woot – you go girl! Rocking it out!! I’m heading over to Bridgette’s and can’t wait to read everything you have to share. 🙂

  3. I love the comparison of Souled to a child that is ready to leave the safety of the parental home. Don’t be sad to let it go though – you have many more amazing “children” to raise for the world, Diana. Your writing is beautiful, emotional and it easily pulls the reader in, so share it with the world!
    Hopping over to Bridgette’s now 🙂

  4. Great posts – here and on Bridgette’s. I’m waiting patiently for Souled’s release! Congratulations!

  5. Diana, the interview at Bridgette’s was really good. I enjoyed getting to know you better and her questions and your answers created desire for me to read the book. Good job to the both of you.

  6. Being involved in “Souled” has been a rare and wonderful experience for me; and I’m so glad you’re getting close to “the end”! (Or rather, the beginning!)

  7. Hi Diana!

    It’s hard to let go of our children, but it sounds like you have great support and your writing is so beautiful. So I know the finished product is going to rock!

    I also dropped by to let you know that you won a Free copy of “Don’t Know Jack” from Diane Capri’s launch party! So come and get it girl! Congratulations! Good things are happening to you! 🙂

  8. Yes! I am so psyched on this book. I can’t wait to see it available. “Again” was fantastic and you have a great gift on drawing in your reader into other worlds. I’ll be standing in line on Amazon waiting for it to be ready, sis. ~hug~
