Hey, guys! My name is Traci Sanders and I'm an author of romance, children's, and nonfiction titles. I'm also an avid reader and huge supporter of other authors through a site I founded called Readers Review Room. Be sure to check it out whether you're an author looking for promotion, or a reader looking for a great book. I'm thrilled to be able to discuss my own books for a change! Today, I'm going to share a bit about the writing process of my second romance novella, Unsevered. This story is very close to my heart, as I feel it was truly my coming-into-my-own-as-an-author title. I learned how to add emotion through application of the five senses, how to write in first-person POV without using the dreaded "I" too often—basically, how to allow my soul to bleed onto the pages of my book, and just ... Tell. The. Story. It was a highly emotional experience. I took a six-month hiatus from this story because I didn't feel it was coming through as strongly as it sounded in my head. I imagined how I would feel if I were the main female character, Jewel. If I lost my husband, who is my high-school sweetheart, in combat, what emotions would I experience? How would I react to the world around me? Would I be able to get up and go on with my life each day? That's when this story truly came to fruition. The words poured out of me from that point on, and I'm so proud of the result. I hope you all enjoy my labor of love, dedicated to military spouses everywhere, who've lost a loved one. Thank God I've never had to go through that; but if I did, I imagine I would experience the same emotions Jewel did in this story. True love is forever Unsevered.
Thanks to Maia for setting up this blog tour, and for hosting me here today. I truly appreciate the chance to share my work.
