BOM: Questions and Answers


Kari asked: "The book absolutely made me think about cloning etc and even bringing someone back from the dead. Even though I thought Diana was a hard woman I saw her desperation! We lost a son born too early and it certainly brought back many memories!Do you ever 2nd guess yourself after the book has been printed or ask yourself what you would have done differently?"

Sometimes, Kari . . . but to be honest, by the time a book has come out, I've gone over it so many times, and so have my editors, that we're all pretty weary with it.

And I can honestly say that I give each book the best I have to give at the time. Of course, life is a learning process, so there are things I would do now that I didn't know to do "back then," but there's no use in dwelling on past mistakes.

So . . . unless I get a chance to go back and edit a book for re-publication, I don't spend a lot of time in regret. There's always something new to work on.

Thanks for coming along on this BOM!

BTW--we've retitled the books in the Fairlawn series (the books about the woman who inherits a funeral home.) The first (finished!) is called DOESN'T SHE LOOK NATURAL? The second (I'm writing now) is SHE ALWAYS WORE RED, and the third will be called SHE'S IN A BETTER PLACE. What do you think?

Are you going for dual meaning? because at least two of the three titles can refer to your protagonist as well as her ...clients or whatever they are called ...

Angela said...

Yes and yes. :-) I had to stretch a bit to make the second one fit, but I think I've got it.

I think the second one can fit, it's just, as you say, a bigger reach - clever titles. Poets love those layered meanings :)

I like the titles, too! Especially the first and the third.
