Irish Whiskey -- Coming Soon

Yippeee -- it will be in time for St. Patrick's Day. I just got my first edits back for Irish Whiskey - due out early March - March 5 to be exact. We have a rock star -- we have two very defective twins bent on having him for their very own -- we have a heroine with a very different idea about that...when they are away on a much needed R&R weekend - the twins show up with much evil on their minds. Be sure to check out what happens in this unfolding drama - Romantic Suspense will never be the same.
Any questions, want more info - want to know about the contest? send me an email at cricket at cricket-sawyer dot com - I'd love to hear from you.

Release date for Her Dark Dragon

Her Dark Dragon has a release date of March 5, 2009.
Verbalizing her arrangement for exchanging her birthright statues with nights in Nico's bed will have them both wondering if she's lost her mind. She'll take away more than the small ivory carvings; she'll take wih her an education only Nico could introduce her to, if he accepts her terms.
It's all so exciting, more when the release date gets closer.
Isn't the cover amazing, my thanks to Dawne Dominique.

Do Rejections Get You Down?

It is just one person's opinion. Here are 12 reasons never to give up. Well, maybe 13 because Inferno will be published February 19, 2009! Thank you Forbidden Publications for taking a chance on me.

From the pages of, How to Get a Literary Agent by Michael Larsen

1. 112 Books Louis L’Amour though he received rejections. He received 200 rejections before he sold his first novel. During the last forty years Bantam has shipped nearly three hundred million of his one hundred twelve books, making him their biggest-selling author.
2. 600+ rejection slips wall paper Jack London’s home.
3. 774 rejection slips for John Creasy who went on to publish under 13 pseudonyms 564 books
4. 14 rejected Pearl S Buck finally published The Good Earth
5. 20 rejections didn’t stop Jonathan Livingston Seagull’s publication and you know how famous it became, written by Richard Bach
6. 40 rejections before she sold her first book didn’t stop Mary Higgins Clark
7. 200 rejections Roots by Alex Haley was published.
8. 15 publishers and 30 agents rejected John Grisham’s A Time to Kill before it was finally published.
9. 375 publishers rejected naked in Deccan over seven years before the Baltimore Sun deemed it a classic.
10. Dr Seuss – 24 in his file of rejections before his first books was published
11. 8 years after the novel Steps won the National Book Award, Jerzy Kosinski allowed it to be send out again with a name change to 13 agents and 14 publishers – all of them rejected it, including Random House, which originally published it. Proves the plight of new writers trying to get recognition or a publishing contract.
12. The New Yorker rejected a short story by Saul Bellow after he won the Nobel Prize for Literature.

So there you have it. Don’t let a little pile of rejections stop you from persevering in your desire to be a published author. The three P’s of getting published: Polish, Persist, Persevere.
