What’s the Coolest Thing You’re About To Do?

This past weekend I signed a contract with the wonderful people over at Evernight Publishing for my story, SIDEWALK FLOWER, about a jaded young woman who is torn between her rock star best friend and his humble, handsome cousin from Tennessee.

Seventeen months ago, I sat filling out a fun little set of questions for a group of fantastic women writers I’d just joined and one of the questions was “What’s the coolest thing you’re about to do?”

My answer was “Share my stories with at least one person who is touched by them.”

What I didn’t realize was just how cool joining that group of phenomenal women writers, the Waterworld Mermaids, was going to be.  And how I never would have come to find those ladies if it hadn’t been for the equally  gracious writers of the Washington Romance Writers of DC.  And how I wouldn’t have stumbled upon WRW-DC if I hadn’t been looking for information on a DC area book signing by my favorite, Sherrilyn Kenyon.  SIDEWALK FLOWER wouldn’t be what it is without the help of my accountability/critique partner, Lynne Silver, who I met through a random post for the mermaids.

Hands down, I believe in luck.  But now I’ve learned that luck is also what me make of it, and what others help us make of it.

If someone asked me today “What’s the coolest thing you’re about to do?”, I’d say “Share my stories with at least one person who is touched by them.”

Being asked that little question is a huge part of my journey.  So friends, I ask you…”What’s the coolest thing you’re about to do?”

Always love,

Carlene Love

  1. Claudia took my answer!!! Ha-ha! Well, I’m happy to share it with her because I can NOT wait to buy your book, Hero! I’m so freaking proud and in awe of you!!! The other coolest thing I’m about to do is hang out with my favorite hero at the beach for a couple days of writing! 😉

    • Haha, probably because I am a newbie at the promo part of advertising my blog posts! You have one fabulous memory, really great quality in a reading partner 🙂 Thank you for everything, Lynne!
