I’m the only one who can write this story.

Does that read like an egotistical edict from an author who thinks she/he is hot stuff? If it does, read it again, this time with a touch of desperation.

Writing isn’t easy. Pulling pure thought from the air and translating it into print form is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It can be exhausting and exhilarating, frustrating and fulfilling. And it takes an inordinate amount of time.

If a person can type sixty words a minute, they should be able to write thirty-six hundred words an hour, don’t you think? It doesn’t work that way.

Each author is the only person who can tell the story they are meant to tell. It’s a gift given to us. Managing our time to get the story told is simply a way to honor the gift.

You are the only one who can tell your story.

I is for Ian Coulter’s Amethyst Cove series.

Double Deuce
Deuce of Diamonds
Ace, Deuce, Trey
Circle of Steel

Free spirited Ian Coulter works hard and plays harder. An ex-cop turned private investigator, Ian enjoys meeting new men and making new friends. A night out ends up with one man on the floor at his feet, and another asking for his help. Big trouble’s brewing in little Amethyst Cove, and Ian’s a step behind. He’s quick to see Rick Mohr is the man holding the flare at the end a long, dark tunnel.

Undercover agent Rick Mohr walks a fine line, serving two masters. Insider trading, counterfeit printing plates, and a blown-up yacht have Rick stuck between two Federal agencies, one of which has been compromised. Rick has to discover the mole before it’s too late. When Ian Coulter walks into his life, Rick grabs the chance to salvage his assignment with both hands.

It doesn’t take Ian and Rick long to discover joining forces, and sharing resources, has definite perks, ones not found in any departmental manual.
