Close your eyes.
Go ahead. Just for a minute.
Now let your mind wander to that place where we all want to be. You know. Yeah, you do. Just say it.
Yeah, you love to write, couldn't live without it. Tried to stop a few times. Once after a nasty crit that made you curl up with two gallons of chocolate ice cream you vowed to stop. And there was the time you got the rejection from your dream editor that made you stomp on every single disc of your story.
But you recovered. And you kept writing.
Because you wanted to see your name on the cover of a book.
So bad it hurt.
Did you want to be at one of the E-pubs like Wild Rose Press or Samhain? Or was it your dream to be at Kensington? Berkely?
Come on. Just say it.
From day one, I've wanted to be a Harlequin Intrigue author.
Always. From the first manuscript I wrote, my dream was to be in the Harlequin stable. Some people look down on Harlequins, say they're too confining, to boring.
But I love the mysteries, the suspense, the romance.
I want to see my name on one of those blue and purple books. D'Ann Linscott-Dunham, Intrigue author.
It's my dream. And I'm not giving up until it comes true.
