A View to A Nerd, Chris Redding
Genre: Romantic Mystery
LAUNCHING TODAY! Happy book birthday, Chris!
Waking up next to a dead guy can ruin your whole day. When a wise-cracking interior decorator wants to put her past behind her, the dead body of the mayor’s son makes it pretty clear that won’t happen too easily. A conservative former computer geek for the FBI is holding on too tightly to his past. His wife died under suspicious circumstances and he believes the decorator has the information to solve the case. Unfortunately for him, she isn’t talking… until a series of events convinces her she needs protection especially when her biggest secret threatens to destroy both their lives.
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your published book the first time?
It was pretty cool. It was as if everything I had done to that point was finally real.
When did you first decide to call yourself a writer? What prompted the decision?
I called myself a writer, with confidence, last year. The reason? I got paid. I ghostwrite and the income helped me be able to quit one of my part time jobs.
What is your best advice for someone just starting their first manuscript?
Learn as much as you can and realize that with every story, you will learn something.
It is easy to stop in the middle. Keep going. Keep plugging. Look how much you’ve done so far.
Breathe. Let it sit for a few weeks then go through it again with fresh eyes.
