Writing Can Be Murder

I READ that book, didn’t I?

The strangest thing happened to me this week: I realized I haven’t read a book I was convinced I’d read. The reason I KNOW I didn’t read it? The author hasn’t written it.

I’ve read the first few chapters, and the detailed synopsis, and the author is so adept at world-building that I KNEW the characters and their entire story.

It was a strange, strange realization.

  1. LOL! Now if only I could convince an editor that they too read the whole book, loved it and want to buy it, before I’ve written it all.
