Gylded Wings … Many Years Later!

Back in the dark ages when I first started writing, I had this brilliant idea to write about a fallen angel, first person POV, so I wrote I, Lucifer (not a bad guy or not too bad most of the time).  I worked on it on and off through the years.  It won a couple of non-published awards including the SARA (San Antonio Romance Writers).  But rejections came in from every publisher to whom I submitted the rather long book.  (I used to write LONG but now I find it difficult to write so verbosely).  I shelved it in my computer.

MorganDArcyAVampyreRhapsody_w10500_medOne day, after signing a contract with The Wild Rose Press, for my Morgan stories, releasing soon, I decided to try the book again with this new/old editor from the Black Rose line.  She published my first short story many moons ago.  She took it!  We should soon be in the editing phase.  I have the gorgeous cover created by Debbie Taylor for the publisher, though I sent a copy of an  original charcoal I’d purchased from Cheryl Mandus at a small Fantasy Con.  The cover artist took that drawing and created this (mostly freehand).  The editor changed the title to Gylded Wings (gylded is a word play on the hero’s name).

Hope your summer is going well.  I’m struggling with writer’s block. It’s hot and humid in the H-Town. I took my vacation in January–no beach trips to Caribbean sands this year!

Happy Friday!

    Gorgeous cover, Linda. Best wishes as you enter the editing phase. It’s the opposite of hot here in Ireland—raining and cold, but beautiful.
