Writing Process Blog Tour

AwakeningIf you’re visiting from Jill Eileen Smith’s blog, Welcome!  Jill and I both write biblical fiction, but with some definite differences. Read more to find out what they are!

What am I working on at the moment?

I have two projects in progress right now. I’m working on the final edits for a contemporary suspense (with lots of history tossed in, of course!), entitled Awakening. It will release next month.

At the same time, I’m working on a trilogy of novellas that feature the magi who came to visit Christ. These aren’t your grandmother’s magi, however.  Expect an epic quest filled with adventure, intrigue and the supernatural.  I’m hoping to have the first of these out by this fall, just in time for Christmas!  (to sign up for a reminder when my next book releases, click here.)

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I sometimes say that I write “biblical” fiction, but it’s definitely not the usual type of biblical fiction. My main characters are never Bible characters, in fact, I typically use people from cultures outside of the Jewish people as my protagonists. I love giving readers glimpses of the pagan world and how it viewed the Jewish nation, and looking at the familiar stories of the Bible from the outside-in.

Why do I write what I do?

The ancient world has always fascinated me, and I love connecting the world history we all learn in school with the Bible stories we learned from a young age at church. All of the interconnections make for great stories!  For example, my latest release, The Queen’s Handmaid, is centered around the explosive relationship between Cleopatra and Herod the Great.  Did you know they were enemies?

How does my writing process work?

I love the pre-writing stage – the research (especially the research!), the outlining and plotting and scene-planning.  I enjoy the revising stage, too.  But that first draft – ah, that’s the hard part! Getting those words down for the first time requires lots of creativity and is very draining. That’s the phase that requires just sheer discipline!  I try to make writing a daily habit, whittling away at that first draft every morning, before much else gets going in my day.

Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to enter my monthly contest before you go!

And next week, June 23rd, be sure to meet and read more from the next author in line, Cara Putman!

Where it all began…

tracyat8

My “official” bio that floats around the internet and print interviews seems to always include some reference to the fact that I started my first novel at the age of eight. I still have this unfinished masterpiece, fifteen chapters of it scrawled in an assortment of spiral notebooks. The handwriting morphs as it goes, so I think I may have worked on it for several years.

Just for fun today, I thought some of you might enjoy reading that early start. I will keep all errors intact. Be kind. I was eight!

Do You Like the New Look?

A couple of months ago I spent some time analyzing my website, taking a look at the pages that my readers seem to most enjoy, learning that my travel stories and photos are a favorite.

As a result, I’ve recently had my site redesigned to make it easier and even more enjoyable to experience the stories and images of my adventures in researching my novels.

You’ll find the “Tracy’s Travels” link at the top will take you to the locations of my books’ settings, and give you a glimpse into the places where specific scenes take place, the inspiration for the plots, and some of my exploits while scouring the globe for new stories.
