My Writing Process Blog Tour Day

Posted by Leanora Cowan on April 14, 2014 at 2:50 AM Comments comments ()

Welcome to My Writing Process Blog Tour Day. This blog tour is where writers and authors answer questions about their writing process. My friend Nikki Walker posted hers last week. You can check out her writing process here: http://nikeezbookstore.wordpress.com/2014/04/07/my-writing-process-blog-tour


What am I working on?

I'm currently working on Volume Four of my Voluptuously Curvy and Loving Series titled Drafted For Love.

Drafted For Love tells the story of Gabrielle Wright, who is a powerhouse when it comes to representing her clients and negotiating contracts. She even opened her own sports agency and is the top agent in the industry, but when it come to her romantic life she is throwing in the towel. She is a feisty, independent, plus size woman that wants a man that can love her the way she deserves, and not just see her fame and money.

Sebastian Scott is a college senior that has been so focused on his grades and football that he doesn't get to party like his friends. Plus he's tired of all the games the women his age play to get next to him, because of his promising football career if he gets drafted into the NFL. He wants a woman that knows her own worth, and that can love him for the man he is, and not for what he can do for them.

As you read the story ask yourself will these two work focused people open each other’s eyes to the burning passion that two people can ignite in the heat of them moment, or will they keep it strictly business? Will Gabrielle finally lower the walls around her heart and let a young man ten years younger than her show her what true love can be? Is Sebastian up to the task to win Gabrielle's trust and love?

 I am also working on Volume Five of the series titled Dreams Come True.


How does my work differ from others of its genre?

 My novels are different because I have added spice and passion by creating stories about plus size women that are feisty, voluptuous, and intelligent, who know what they want and will do what needs to be done to get the men they love.


Why do I write what I do?

 I write romance because I love happy endings and the passion between two people when they discover true love with their soulmate. I also wanted to focus on women that were plus size because you don't see a lot of romance novels with plus size heroines. I wanted women to be able to relate to my characters and realize that no matter their size or shape that they deserve love and should not settle for anything less than total happiness.


How does your writing process work?

 When I start a new project I always sit down and outline to book from beginning to end. Sometimes my characters have other plans and decide to change some things but its always good to have a outline for reference. After my outline, the fun begins with researching my story location, characters professions, and other topics. Once I start writing, I normally six to eight hours a day and its normally after my kids go to school or late at night after everyone is in the bed. The next step for me is the editing process after I finish my first and second draft, which I normally do till I can't find any more errors. Then I edit some more just to make sure I caught every thing because I want to give my readers the best.

 Thanks for stopping by and reading my post!!  You can check out the writing processes of my fellow authors Don Abdul, Theresa Henry, and Renee Luke next Monday, April 21! 




Don Abdul - I'm a writer and author of erotic fiction in my 40s. I discovered creative writing as a way to escape the dullness of small town life from an early age. My journey as an author of erotic fiction began with a passion for writing erotic poetry and then spicy short stories.

Some of my other works of erotic fiction have been published under my Nom de plume, Tyrese Jordan.

Theresa Henry - I grew up and currently live in London, England.

I love to read, and discovered the enjoyment that can be found in books at around the age of nine. I have been an avid reader ever since.

Abandoned but not Alone is the first book I have ever attempted to write, and I loved creating it from start to finish. I want to write all the time, once I get started I just seem to have so much to say. If you knew me personally, your first comment would be 'nothing new there'. I'm a great talker, putting pen to paper or in this instance, finger to keyboard, has given family and friends a welcome respite from my constant chatter.

Renee Luke - Renee Luke is a multi-published award-winning author, who has written for several houses, but is now self-publishing. She writes stories with rich texture, deep emotions, and realist characters. She creates stories where sensual seduces erotic and believes in love, romance, and happily-ever-afters.

Author brings awareness to women’s self – esteem issues with her newest romance novel

Raleigh, NC – Leanora Moore, who has released two previous romance novels, has released a new romance novel titled Smooth as Silk to bring awareness to women’s self-esteem issues and also women empowerment. Smooth as Silk was released February 1, 2013 and is available for sell on Amazon.com, Barnes & Nobles.com, and Booksamillion.com.

“Love is about passion and desire not shape, size, or color.” Smooth as Silk introduces a new kind of heroine, which is why the series is called Voluptuously Curvy and Loving It Series. This series is about feisty plus size women that want to be loved just like the next woman. This book is the first of many in the Voluptuously Curvy and Loving It Series. In this series, you will read stories about plus size women that live ordinary lives, whether it's as a waitress, executive, or a teacher. While they are dealing with their issues, they don't let it keep them from finding love and happiness with the man of their dreams. With this series, Leanora wanted to set the stage for women that are larger than most to understand love doesn't know weight or size and only you can stand in your way of happiness. This series also lets the plus size women know that they may be plump and curvy, but they can be just as sexy as the next woman who is looking to find love, and it just means you have more for him to love. Also, you need to love yourself first, and as the divas say, “If you got it, flaunt it”.

In Smooth as Silk, Angela Patterson has had a hard life, now Angela is living her life to the fullest and making a living doing the one thing that makes her happy and that's singing. Angela sings at a nightclub called Olivia's, where she hopes to be offered the deal of a life time to boost her singing career.

Gary McNeil owns McNeil Records and runs his record label with his twin brother Barry, and their other siblings. Gary has always focused on work and his family till he laid eyes on Angela Patterson across the room in a crowded restaurant and he couldn't stop thinking about her. Fate steps in when his cousin tells him about an amazing singer at his club and when Gary and his siblings check out this new singer, it turns out to be his mystery lady from the restaurant and he has to sign her to his label.

At the age of 31, Leanora decided to write her first novel titled "The Caress of a Younger Man". Since then she has written another romance novel titled "Heavenly Kingdom", which she introduced plus size heroines into her romance novels. As an author, Leanora wanted to bring something special to the romance genre, so as a plus size woman herself, she wanted to give her readers someone that they can relate to. She hopes to book speaking engagements to speak to young women about these issues and to empower them. She also wants to help aspiring authors to take that final step to get published.

Starting Over

Posted by Leanora Cowan on May 21, 2012 at 11:45 AM Comments comments ()


 i just started the writing process over for the third time and each time it seems like it gets harder and harder for authors to get published. I am so glad i have such a great publishing home at Publishing America. I want to let all New Authors that it may be hard at first, but there is nothing like seeing your name on the cover of your book to make you realize that all that hard work pays off in the end.

If any of you need any help of advise please contact me and i will be that shoulder to help you though the process. I know how it is, to feel like your all alone and don't have anyone to understand what it feels like to get that first rejection letter.

Again just let me know if you need any help.
