Welcome to Writers’ Wednesday. Today, I’m happy to feature Lisa Wells, whose first book, DIBS, was published by Wild Rose Press. Lisa is newsletter editor for Ozarks Romance Authors. Her "Buck Up Sissy Girls" column about writing is a favorite. Thanks for being here today.
Hi Barbara. Thanks for inviting me today.
Your book DIBS is a sexy contemporary romance. What draws you to this genre?
I enjoy reading light-hearted romances full of steam and sass. In this business, the motto is write what you like to read. So, I do.
DIBS certainly fills that bill. What’s your next project?
I’m working on a one I’ve titled: “The To Do List.” In it, the heroine is trying to transform her naughty girl image into a good girl image. When her ex-best friend dies and leaves her a to do list that requires her to revisit some of her activities of the past, she has to decide if she’ll honor her friend’s last wish or continue down her good girl path.
I'll bet the hero has something to say about that.
What one tip would you offer writers?
Study the craft. There is soooooooooo much to learn. The best way to capture it is to immerse yourself in the study of it. Think of writing as a new language you’re learning. The more you surround yourself with people who speak that language, the better you will learn it, speak it and write it.
Love the idea of writing as a new language. It's one we all hope to become proficient in. Thanks, again, for joining us today.
I’ve enjoyed the opportunity.
