The Ten Things I Wish I Knew About Being an Author

1)   Persuading a literary agent to even consider looking at the synopsis of your manuscript is akin to swimming through concrete, but when it happens, Life is fantastic!

2)    Rejection by literary agents is harsh, but the rejection is a sign to revamp your novel.

3)   Writing a novel is not as easy as it is made out to be. Writing a second novel is definitely not as easy as it is made out to be.

4)   It is wonderful to have your book read by strangers and receive positive, heartwarming, huge-smile-making feedback.

 5)   English and American spellings do not mix well in the same manuscript!

6)   Ensuring that the design one has in mind for one’s book cover comes off can result in the graphic designer and author ending up with several more grey hairs than they started out with.

7)  The writers and bloggers I’ve met are a generous, helpful, lovely bunch of people!

8)   The thrill of being published and seeing your book enter Amazon’s 100 Hot New Releases at Number 20 is up there (almost) with the thrill of holding your babies in your arms for the first time.

9)   Editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing and editing is never enough. An error or three always, always, sneaks into an edited-to-death manuscript.

10)  Writing will not make me rich but it makes me supremely happy.

BLURB
1968, Srinagar, Kashmir and Nina is devastated by the death of her new-born baby girl.
Sister Angela and Father Michael at the mission hospital step in to nurse Nina back to health
but when the friendship between Nina and Father Michael turns to love, Michael makes a
decision which will resonate through the years.
It is 1981 and in Kinsale, Ireland, Nina, devoted to her son Joshua, lives a loveless existence,
but a chance encounter changes everything. Michael is back in her life, he leaves the
priesthood and happiness is within their grasp.
But when past and present collide, their whole world is turned upside down.
Only by facing the consequences of what has gone before, can Nina and Michael embrace
the future.
Janna Gray guides us masterfully through this poignant story of love, loss, betrayal and
hope.
