“Real Life” for Andrea Boyd
Unfortunately, I was told at an early age that because of medical reasons, I wouldn’t have children. But God had other plans and blessed me with three.
Consequently, my sole focus before becoming a writer was to raise those three blessings. Then, like most empty-nesters, after the last one moved out of my house I wondered what would be next for me. That’s when God called me to write. (Click to Tweet!)
Andrea Boyd’s Debut Experience
With traditional publishing, it takes a long time from the moment your book is ready until it makes it to print. I was in my late forties when I finished my first book. Securing Aisling. Time seems to run out faster at this age.
After praying about it, I decided to publish the book myself. Indie publishing has its own set woes, but it is also very satisfying.
What’s up with Andrea Boyd at Present
Also I have two contemporary romance series going on.
Sweet Tea Holiday Collection
In addition, I have one book in the Sweet Tea Holiday Collection so far. Heart’s Desire focuses on New Year’s Eve, and I am working on a Christmas story to go next in the series.
Walden Beach Series
I just released the first book in the Walden Beach series. Irresistibly Yours is about Vivian Emerson, a woman who has suffered through one bad marriage and has no desire to try again. Then Bo Manning sweeps in with intensions of changing her mind.
The second book in that series is also in the works.
