I’m really pleased today to welcome Tora Williams on my blog. We’ve known each other since meeting a few years ago at Romantic Novelists’ Association meet-ups, and in that time we’ve seen each other go from would-be authors to published authors.
Tora’s debut novel Bound to Her Blood Enemy is available to pre-order now on Kindle now, and will be published on 25th June 2018.
Over to you, Tora…
- How long have you been writing? Can you tell us a bit about your journey to publication?
When I was a child I was always making up stories in my head (others might call it daydreaming!) and I wanted to be an author. But real life got in the way and I only started writing seriously in about 2010. I soon realised that I was obsessed with providing my characters with happy-ever-afters, so I focused on writing romance. In 2013 I was lucky enough to get a place on the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme. As part of the scheme I was able to submit a manuscript every year for assessment, and the feedback I got really helped me improve. The support from friends I’ve made through the RNA has also been invaluable, and they kept me going each time I got a rejection. Then in January 2018 I finally got the longed-for email from The Wild Rose Press saying they’d love to publish Bound to Her Blood Enemy.
