The reading audience seemed to like the column and soon the Editor asked me to do a column on books. He knew I liked to read and it seemed to be a natural fit. It too proved to be popular and soon both columns were running in several newspapers in Georgia.

I also began doing personality profiles for various magazines. I also began to get quoted in the front sections of paperback versions of the hardback novels I had reviewed. It was published by a small press in Dallas, Texas. I was one of the truly lucky ones.
Eventually I entered into a contract with Mercer University Press and I am working on my seventh book for them. Thus the dichotomy began.

I was a critic by day and an author by night. That is when I became a critic, even though I was still just giving my opinion as I always had. Hey, whatever floats their boat.
It is an awkward position to be in. I have many, many good friends who are writers. Jeffery Deaver and I communicate by e-mail most of the time but when I go to see my son in Raleigh and Jeffery is at home we try to grab a cup of coffee. Basically I guess I am a book critic who is also an author. Reviewing is my main job and writing books is my second career.
I do a little thisa and a little thata. It makes for a strange career but it is one I could never have dreamed up in my wildest dreams. Not everyone likes my books. I understand that. I hope you understand that. Friday, July 29, 15 Minutes.
I wish I could tell you that the reason for the feeling of time flying is because I am so engrossed in writing my next novel on a daily basis. Some days I am, thankfully. But there are also many days in which the hours are consumed by laundry, kids, emails, Facebook—and sea turtles. My goal is pages on a good day. I like to start early in the morning, when my mind is fresh and the creativity at its best. I love those special moments when I wake with words in my head and dialogue so fresh on my lips I mutter them aloud. Typically though, my day begins with a good cup of coffee and a read of my local newspaper.
Turtles rule my schedule.
When I get the call at in the morning that tracks are found, I fly out the door to the beach to join my teammates to search for eggs, move them if needed, and set up the protection signs. As distracting as these duties are from writing, the adventures I experience with my Island Turtle Team are the perfect muse for my current book.
The conversations shared, getting my hands in the sand, playing a small role in the risky game of life for these sea turtles help fuel the storytelling process. It is these moments that create the words that I store to get to next paragraph, the next chapter, the next scene.
Still, the pages need to get written. Deadlines loom. There is no substitute for putting my hands to the keyboard and producing pages of story. Knowing when to turn off the research and turn on the creativity is critical to the process. I know this.

I tell myself this every day, multiple times a day. Where did the time go? Mary Alice Monroe is an award-winning, bestselling author of thirteen novels, plus one on the way. For more information, visit www. Labels: Mary Alice Monroe. However, paperback sales dipped nearly 18 percent and hardcover sales fell 23 percent compared to the same period previous year.
At the same time, eBooks sales have continued to grow at a rapid pace. And then there are the closing independent bookstores, falling like dominoes every week. Even Borders, hanging on by a thread for months, made the big announcement yesterday that they are finally done and… nearly 11, people who have been hopefully trying to sell our books will be out of work soon. Because he can make more money on the ever growing e-book market. More so than if his traditional publisher put his book out there. That one had me more shocked than alarmed.
Because for me the traditional publisher has always meant one thing—validation. That my work was good enough to pass muster and be selected for that inner sanctum. It had been rejected off and on for 5 years! My secret dream was to get it taken. And it was, by Hyperion Books. Watch list is full.
