Happy feelings

One of the best feelings in the world is when someone reads something I’ve written and they tell me they couldn’t stop reading – they couldn’t put it down. I had this happen with my first book. Even though I can count quite quickly the number of people who have read my first book they all said the same thing. It was a page-turner. It was addicting to read. They couldn’t put it down. They finished it in one session.

I love to hear that! Anyone who has written a book knows the feeling.

And now that the second book in that series is complete (still in editing phase since I’m pretty much doing everything myself and I do have a life besides writting – although I wish I didn’t some days) I am getting the same response. I have had a few people read the completed draft of book 2 and they say the same things. Couldn’t put it down. Loved it. Read it in a day.

Now if I could figure out how to get both books into more hands. I know not everyone will like what I wrote. Not everyone is meant to. But both men and women, young children and older people, love the books so far. One of these days I’ll figure out how to get the concept into the hands of someone who knows more than I do about the best way to market and SELL.

Until that day I am still writing. Have an interesting new concept I am working on. Hopefully it’s just a one book story (book series ARE harder to write, no doubt). But either way I’ll tell the story my characters want me to tell.

After all, it is THEIR story and I’m just the one taking dictation :).

About ynnarie

Lynn Salisbury grew up in the rural town of McGrath, Minnesota. After graduating from McGregor High School in the mid 1980’s, she moved to the Twin Cities. Lynn spent her 20’s and 30’s working like the average person, never imagining the calling that awaited her. But those two decades of working, learning, growing, led to the day a friend challenged Lynn to write. Lynn met that challenge and never looked back. Now she draws from her life’s experiences and creative mind to weave stories. Stories about different worlds, different lives, different perspectives. If you ask her about her life, Lynn will tell you it’s been rather simple and sometimes boring. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that it’s been a bit more exciting than that. Lynn has done everything from designing clothes ranging from prom and wedding dresses to drag queen attire and everything in-between, became a registered, ordained Pagan minister in the state of Minnesota, to creating a group, on a social media site, of fans devoted to her favorite football team that has more members than most medium sized towns. Lynn still lives in the Twin Cities area, enjoying the changing seasons, spending time with family, working, and writing. She will admit she hasn’t found her genre niche yet, and she secretly hopes she never does, leaving the possibilities wide open for any type of story that formulates in her head, mixed with a bit of muse inspiration, to spill out into the written word. She writes what she would want to read, having taken to heart a piece of advice she once heard. And she feels blessed and grateful for the chance to share her stories with the world. As the mother of three amazing, beautiful and strong daughters, Lynn knows that even when the world seems the darkest, they are her light. And she never forgets what an honor and privilege it is to be their mother. “If you haven’t had your ‘a-ha’ moment today, you haven’t been paying attention.” – Lynn Salisbury
