My thanks to everyone who voted for the 2017 Awards. I'm thrilled that so many of you enjoyed my first story. Writing The Farmer's Daughter, and interacting with my readers was an amazing experience. My editors, beta readers, friends, and my wife all helped me to stay on course and learn.
One of the things I learned was to finish the story before posting it. It is my intention to do so with my current story, The Girl Next Door. TGND is set in a future world where there have been amazing advances in genetics. If you enjoyed The Farmer's Daughter, chances are you will also enjoy The Girl Next Door.
1. Write the entire story first.
2. Avoid in-chapter POV changes when writing in first person.
The Clitoride nominations are open! If you've read and enjoyed my story, please vote for it. I've also been nominated for Best New Author.
About halfway through writing TFD, my mother called and accused me of writing pornography. She said, "Men use those stories for...you know what they use them for!" I wish I had recorded the conversation. My laughing made her really mad.
There should be a separate Clitoride award for "Author Accused by Mother for Writing Porn."
Mom has read the completed story, and she's calmed down. She now refers to TFD as Amish Erotica. I love my mom.
Readers, please vote for your favorite authors and stories. It means a lot.
Chapters nine and ten conclude the story, The Farmer's Daughter.
It has been a great deal of fun writing this story. When I started, there were so many things I didn't know. It was difficult to understand the constructive criticism I received. I've since learned a few things.
Thank you for reading my story.
Eight wasn't supposed to take months to write. I got off on the wrong track and it took four attempts to get it right. The story in this version is far better than my original idea.
Chapter nine is in work.
After you read chapter eight, feel free to let me know what you think.
