Q. Overall, how would you rate your experience with So You think You Can Write Global 2012?
A. It was well organized. I enjoyed participating.
Q. We were required to upload the first chapter as our entry in SYTYCW. Is that chapter still in its original form or has it gone through more revisions?
A. Does anything ever stay as is? Yes, it’s gone through more revisions. Still tweaking and polishing.
Q. How about the rest of the book? Is it finished? Going through more revisions?
A. The book is finished and I’m revising it in its entirety.
Q. Oh Lorraine, I am doing the same so I more than feel your pain. Any thoughts on submitting your entry to another publisher or agent?
A. Harlequin American is considering my ms for publication, hence the revisions. If that falls through, I will certainly sub it elsewhere.
Q. Congrats on your full request, Lorraine. How long have you been writing?
A. I’ve been writing all my life, but romance since February, 2009.
Q. Have you ever entered a contest like this one before?
A. Yes, I entered SYTYCW two years ago and New Voices before that.
Q. What are your thoughts about the promotional aspect of the contest?
A. I think Harlequin and the participants promoted themselves well.
Q. If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently, if anything?
A. I would’ve allowed more time for writing and polishing.
Q. Is there ever enough time? What are you working on now?
A. Revisions for Suited to be a Cowboy for Hqn American and Cameron’s Quest, Book 5 in my Thunder Creek Ranch series with Evernight Publishing.
