7. How long did it take to write?
Since neither WIP is finished, I can't answer this question. However, I will say that both are taking longer than any of the others I have written. I wrote the first draft of Second Chance in six weeks, with many drafts afterwards. All in all it took about nine months. I began both First Impression and Through the Fog over a year ago. However, during that time I also published my second novel, Third Time Around, so that is one less project.
8. What other books within your genre would you compare it to?
I have a hard time comparing my works. I feel I am either stepping on another author's toes by having the audacity to say, "My book is like that", or someone will read my book based on that comparison and completely disagree. I will say other people have compared my two published works with Karen Kingsbury and Nicholas Sparks.
