The Call Story

Annette Newell

I have been writing seriously for the last five years, after I finally broke down and joined the world of computers. Sitting looking at my empty screen, I thought, yes I could write the first paragraph and see how it goes.  Well it didn’t stop at the first paragraph, and it didn’t stop at the first book either. I am now the author of 6 novels, 5 which my dear editor Pam Lee has on her All Romance Books site. I was searching for publishers on the net when I spotted All Romance Books. I read their ad, and I read it again. Was my book good enough? I liked it. Would others see the potential?  I geared up my synopsis, my first one was extremely difficult but after I played around with it, it sounded okay to me. I made a nice letter to Pam saying how I was new and I asked if she had time maybe she could look at my manuscript.  I wanted to send it in. I wanted to take the chance. I think the hardest thing I ever did in my life was to push that send button to All Romance Books. In a matter of days, not the weeks or months I expected I got an e-mail from Pam.  I sent my work in on April 28, 2005 and on April 30, 2005 I was offered a contract. I still have that very first e-mail. I want to quote my editor.  “I read Sea Of Love today. It is a very sweet, romantic story with plenty of emotion for the reader. You did a very good job and it will take little editing. We would like to offer you a contract for this book if you are interested.”  Now that was the shock of a lifetime. I expected an immediate no because I didn’t have that much faith in my ability at first. My five books came out, almost one after the other, so for me I didn’t have too much time to think about what was happening to me. I will forever be thankful to All Romance Books and everything they did for my writing career. Pam Lee and Gina are the best.
