Write Yourself Out of This One Joan Wilder

I am in an undesirable situation. Not career wise. Career wise life couldn't be better. Two publishing houses. Three series, fourteen contracts, five books out, two more coming soon. It's my personal life that seems to be in the crapper. Well, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but personally I am miserable/

A show of hands if there are any other 37 year olds living at home with their parents by choice? A show of hands of those who aren't respected, whose work is seen as oh you get a contract oh big deal? How many hear when are you going to get paid real money for your work?

My best friend and sometime writing partner said, if you're so miserable, write yourself out of this one Joan Wilder. So I've reset and that's what I've decided to do.

No one can guarantee the lightning in a bottle success that seems to come along every once in a great while but I know I'm good enough and this story is EPIC enough to get us a sale when things seem so bleak. Granted, I am waiting to hear back on a novel I submitted to what looks like a wonderful small press in Intrigue Publishing, but I do fear they will reject me even after the revisions I've made. But then isn't that every writer's fear,

So how am I writing myself out of this one? There is a long gestating story that has seen many forms.

Ariel & Adriana Stuart are the long suffering twins who have survived a mob hit on their families, and Beale and Stone are the men charged with protecting them from the enemies who want to finish the job. So any time you're in a nasty situation watch Romancing the Stone and...write yourself out of this one Joan Wilder.

I think I mentioned this in my email to you a while back, but if I didn't, here it is again.

I'm impressed with your site.

Nice job.
