Blog Tag Tour - My Writing Process

Author Mary Ann Bernal

I’m always up for playing a game, especially if it is a word game! Author Mary Ann Bernal invited me to join in a game of Blog Tag. Yes, I could probably use physical exercise, but the temptation to write is too great. My promise to myself is that after writing this, I will run a couple miles… or eat some chocolate….or drink a Dr. Pepper. 

Please stop by Mary Ann Bernal's blog and visit with her a bit here I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing Author Mary Bernal’s The Briton and the Dane: Timeline. You can read all about it here.




The game is afoot, er...ahand...






What are you currently working on?

Thank you for asking Mary Ann! I have several projects in work.

~ I am currently working on getting all of my titles on auido. Four of the six are available on Audible or ITunes. 

~Chosen. This is a family drama novel that follows a couple through the heartache of not having a child of their own to the obstacles of adopting. It is a moving novel that will move your heart as choices, both positive and negative, occur. You can read an excerpt here  and I will be posting excerpts on Sundays if you want to follow along.

Princess Alexia and the Dragon – Spanish edition soon to be released in kindle and audio

~ On Top of the Rainbow – Spanish edition soon to be released in kindle and audio.


How does your writing process work?

There is a writing process? Ha! I have several projects going on at once and I have to divide my time in between them as well as include time for marketing and my full time job as an aircraft mechanic. 

I spend time writing without worrying about mechanics or concept. Sometimes I write chapters out of sequence and then suddenly, like magic, the pieces of the puzzle link together. 

After that, I spend a lot of time on editing. And editing some more. And editing again. Then I get an experienced editor to look at the manuscript and fix the errors that person finds. And then I submit it again to another editor. 

How does your work differ from others of its genre?

I will direct this response to my next release Chosen. 

I think Chosen has a different feel to it than other books in the adoption category that I have seen. 

What sets this book apart is that the adoption couple this book is loosely based on chooses to remain married after blood tests confirm that they would be able to have their own children if they were with different partners. To them, it was a choice to stay together. It was a choice to go through the trials of private adoption. 


Why do you write what you do?

I write because I love to create and I can’t draw or sing. I write because it is in my blood to do so. I follow in the footstep of my Great-great uncle Walter E. Taylor.
