Publishing, Happily Ever Afters, and the #MeToo Movement

I was lucky enough to be asked to be a guest on the Always Take Notes podcast this month. Kassia and Simon host the show created by, for and about writers. They ask journalists, publishers, screenwriters, novelists, and agents to talk candidly about their work and career paths, and it makes for fascinating listening every time.

In my wide-ranging interview, I invited Kassia and Simon into the world of romance and genre fiction. We spoke about how I came to write my first books, the importance of marketing and social media for writers, and the pros and cons of self-publishing in this genre. I also talked about the impact of the #metoo movement on the world of romance.

It's one of those funny things that we recorded this podcast a couple months ago and so much has already changed. You'll hear me say that The Light over London will be out in November in paperback. It's now getting a full hardcover release in January 2019. I also talk about not knowing what I'm writing next. I do! In fact, this weekend I scribbled away and came up with the synopsis for my next book which I'll be pitching to my editor through my agent this month.
