Are you a PLOTTER or a PANTSER…or are you BOTH? That’s the question being asked of the authors coming to you live this month on ALL THE BLOG’S A PAGE. I have had author-friends who truly detest plotting, feeling it takes away from what the characters want to say, and I’ve had author-friends who detest flying by the seat of their author pants because the writing produced never seems to gel and come together. What do you prefer? Check out what the AtBaP authors of July think and share your own thoughts!
Our next author this month is someone I’ve read over the years and have LOVED–Bettye Griffin!
In this updated, revised eBook version of Bettye Griffin’s classic novel originally published in 1999…
Ava Maxwell has made a career out of helping other people with their dreams as the leading wedding planner in the trendy but troubled city of Palmdale, Florida. She cherishes the idea of couples starting marriages and creating families…knowing that for her, the reality was painfully different.
Ten years before Ava walked out on her marriage when she and her ex-husband received the devastating news that she would never be able to have children…the one thing her ex wanted most. The intervening years have been marked by aborted relationships, her only comfort being the belief that she will finally be able to claim happiness once she reaches the point in her life where she would no longer be expected to bear children…but she’s only thirty-five years old and lonely, and ‘that certain age’ is still a good ten years away.
Then, in the same remarkable evening, Ava encounters both an eight-year-old purse snatcher and an exciting new man in town. Unlikely alliances are formed, bonds that soon deepen into something more special than she’s ever known. Could these two be the key to her attaining…A Love of Her Own?
Stop by All the Blog’s a Page to not only read Bettye’s thoughts on plotting and pantsing, but to also sneak a peek at her re-released novel, A LOVE OF HER OWN!
