Ann Love and Jane Drake

Twenty-five years ago, two power-suited publishers looked us up and down and asked, “Why should we give you this contract? We have many authors with ten or more books to their credit?”

 Gulp! We exchanged anxious looks and did a mental checklist:

  • Long suits – passion, enthusiasm, flexibility, endless greed for knowledge, English degrees, a handful of writing courses…
  • Short suits – naivety, inexperience, (we were green!), passion, enthusiasm…

Valerie and Ricky took a chance even though we had a lot to learn. Thirty-three books later, our long suits are longer and our environmental focus keeps them green – but we still have more to learn.

This blog is an opportunity for us to share our accumulated experiences. And we know we’ll add to our learning by reflecting and organizing our experiences – that’s the magic of the writing process. Please let us know what you think…
