Stealing Carmen was a work from the soul. One of those stories that knows what it wants and flows out of the author almost effortlessly. I have had this experience twice and marvel at them both. I can't explain them...I longingly wish every book worked that way. They don't.
Wrote SC in a week. It was contracted and fully edited in a little over thirty days from the date I started writing. The same thing happened with Romeo, however it took a little longer in the edits for that one. I was a very new writer.
Came home and found another glowing review for Stealing Carmen. Makes a writer's heart glow.
