How long did it take for you to publish this book?
I self-published A Story of the West so it wasn’t a very long process. The editing took a couple months. The biggest delay was when I procrastinated because of doubts about my ability.
What's one of your most favorite lines in the book and why?
“‘Is this woolie weather?’ Lavina asked.” The way I use this question gives my hero, Matt, an opportunity to share a laugh with his sweetheart. Besides, how many people know what woolies are? (No, they’re not long johns.)
Turn to page 52. What is happening?
Oooh, good choice. After thinking he has lost the woman he is falling in love with, Matt finds her again. He uses the excuse of buying a horse to make the journey to the distant town she has moved to. They are reunited on this page.
What's next for you, Susan?
I am currently writing a sequel to A Story of the West that I plan on having out by late spring. It has a different flavor as it takes place in more recent times and I’ve challenged myself further by taking a different approach to this book.
Thank you so much for this interview, Susan! Can you tell us where we can purchase your book?
