Publishing delays can sometimes mean a long wait before a book is published

If you find writers’ processes interesting, then you’ll want to check out

You don’t usually think of authors having to wait years for their book to be published AFTER the contract has been signed and the publisher has acquired the book, but that’s what happened to Cynthia’s book Rules. And in that time, she had to change some details in her book because they became outdated. It’s so interesting to read–but not something that any author ever wants to have happen to them. I really appreciate Cynthia’s honesty in sharing the details and frustrations; it may help other authors facing the same thing, to know that they’re not alone.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
