Welcome to autumn. I'm not sure if it officially is the season of autumn but it certainly looks and feels like it in my part of the world. It's been just over a year since I moved from the big city to the leafy English countryside and it's one of the best moves I've ever made. Since moving I've written two books and I'm just beginning to send them out to various publishers.
In keeping with the romantic comedy books I've already had published, these last two novels also fall under that category. There are, however, elements of family drama running through each of them. They say to write what you know and hidden within the pages of each of these novels are themes that resonate with me. In some way shape or form I seem to be close to a family drama (can't say which family - could be mine!) but the dramas managed to creep into the pages of the last two novels.
If this is the first time you've come across the Rosa Temple website and you haven't read any of my books, this might be a good time of year to join me on a journey. The steps to publication are long, arduous, tedious and just downright nerve racking. But I've been down this road a few times now and I'm beginning the season with the journey of those two new books.
So far I've submitted them to two publishers. Who knows if I'll ever hear back from them and who knows, that if I do, they'll even like my books. The fact is, I do. I have faith in them. So much so, I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is. If I don't get a publishing deal, I'll self-publish both of them. (Another branch of that long road to publication I was taking about).
I'm taking this journey and branching out into a new season. I'm scared but happy and excited too because one day, in the not too distant future, I'll have added two more titles to my catalogue. Now that's something to look forward to!
