    Victoria Trout—Romance Author Dishes on Coauthers and Pros & Cons of Traditional vs. Self-publishing

    Victoria Trout—Romance Author Dishes on Coauthers and Pros & Cons of Traditional vs. Self-publishing

    Here are a few words from Victoria:

    Ethan's Flight was published April 2008. Sadly my co-author/mother passed away from complications with renal failure from diabetes in late 2009. I struggled with continuing a writing career without my partner for several years. Finally in late 2013 I was able to pick up a few of the pieces, connect with our mentor from Ethan's Flight, and begin editing the massive first manuscript.

    With the support of my family, the encouragement and direction from my mentor, and the comfort, understanding and demands (When is the next book after Ethan's Flight coming out already?! Haven't I waited enough?!) from readers like you helped me take the steps necessary to pick up the pen and continue.

    Thank you all so much! I appreciate you all more than you know. So, I have been working on the massive manuscript to attempt self-publishing and see if I can succeed with Legacy. If the response to this is everything I hope and dream, I will take back Ethan's Flight and release the second book as well. If I don't feel the response is the best for the series, I will continue with my current publisher. Either way, there will be a second book in the near future.

Great conversation with a wonderful host

Dr. Katherine Hutchinson-Hayes might sound intimidating, especially if you know what she writes, but irl she is as heartwarming as a slice of fresh bread with butter and honey.
Katherine has the gift of putting her guests at ease, and digging into their passions. It’s a treasure hunt and they always come up with gold.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being both a listener and a guest of Murder, Mystery, and Mayhem Laced with Morality.
