Welcome to the 2013 A to Z Challenge!
This year, I’m focusing on two themes: Emotions and grammar,
depending on which letter we’re on each day.
I’ll be sharing mostly what I’ve learned about writing emotion into a novel, but I’ll also be throwing in a few key grammar lessons, pet peeves I’ve picked up while working as an editor.
Here’s the thing: I couldn’t figure out a topic for emotion or grammar that began with K,
so I thought I’d go a little off course. But if that’s not good enough, you could always go to my
K post from last year. Either way, I appreciate your indulgence.
K is for Kidnapped: to steal, carry off, or abduct by force or fraud, especially for use as a hostage or to extract ransom.
I’m sure you’re wondering why I picked kidnapped. Well, if you haven’t yet read my book, The Mistaken, then you might not know it’s a huge part of the story. Funny thing is, the hard part of pulling that off was making the reader sympathize with a protagonist who commits such a heinous act, not to mention quite a few others. But, I must have done a decent enough job because…
Not only is The Mistaken still loitering in Amazon’s Top Rated in Romantic Suspense, it’s also ranked fourth on Goodreads’ Kidnapped list, along with CJ Roberts’ Dark Duet Series and Lucy Christopher’s Stolen, all of which I enjoyed.
I’d love to have your support, too, so if you’re a Goodreads member, feel free to sign in and hit the "vote for this book" button.
Thank you! Thank you verra much!
