Find a book & meet the authors

I’m proud to announce another book event I’m honored to be a part of.

My publisher, Solstice Publishing will have six authors (including yours truly), selling and signing books at the Barnes and Noble bookstore in Federal Way.

These events are all about finding new readers and inviting them to fall into an unforgettable adventure; be it Western, Sci-Fi, Paranormal romance, Urban fantasy, or even Paranormal short stories. (Yes, all these genres will be represented!)

Barnes & Noble – 31325 Pacific Hwy S., Federal Way –

Sunday, October 22nd

11am-5pm

I’m also happy to share that Cypress Groves, Book Two of the Eternal Journey is getting close to being ready for release.

Now is the time to meet the characters of the first story that have an incredible journey of their own. There’s imaginative Greye Fields, hunky Connor Donovan, even that snotty Desirae!

Lavender Fields has a different hold on each reader. Some are shocked, others are tickled. There is steamy heat, as well as raw language and real circumstances. I’ve been told it’s more than a paranormal romance.

Cover Art Lavender Fields

“Lavender Fields is a romance with a racial twist that makes it a departure from the conventional works of the genre……Perry brings us two lovers who are clearly drawn, sympathetic, and who keep us rooting for them and their relationship even when all seems lost. If you’re a romance fan and have any kind of social conscience, you’ll enjoy Lavender fields.”

If you’re looking for a gift idea, a new read, or just want to hang out with some local authors and talk books, I’ll be the one with a big smile on my face.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Editing Process

Any writer who has had their work published professionally can speak for days about the editing process. The editor and author work together to hopefully put the best story together that they can. I will admit when I was assigned my first editor with Lavender Fields, I thought it was all about fixing a few typos here and there.

I was wrong. Very wrong.

My editor Cheryl, was very serious about what she did. As the author, I could choose (for the most part), to accept or decline her suggestions. She truly knew her stuff. Of course, looking back I wish I’d listened more.

This business of writing is a learning experience at every turn. I’m constantly finding new ways to improve my craft. I’m in edits now for book two, Cypress Groves. I have a new editor, Jack, who like Cheryl is very capable and great to work with. I’m reminded of things I’ve learned but forgotten, and given feedback of things I wouldn’t have thought to know.

One thing I’ve heard over and over again is, remember to enjoy the journey from idea to publication. It is never an easy journey, but always worth it in the end.

I’m excited that though it’s taken me longer than anticipated to get here, I do now truly appreciate the process, and look forward to sharing this new story with the world.

Well, back to work I go! I’ll share when things get close to wrapping up.
