Hey, romance addicts. Amber Daulton is back with another great book and interview. She joins us to share her writing process and a new Valentine’s adventure romance, My Valentine’s Adventure.
Amber Daulton is the author of the romantic-suspense series Arresting Onyx and several
standalone novellas. Her books are published through The Wild Rose Press, Books to Go Now,
and Daulton Publishing, and are available in e-book, print on demand, audio, and foreign language
formats. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and demanding cats.
How did publishing your first book change your writing process?
Boy, is that a loaded question! I’d modeled my style after what I was reading, only to learn with my first publisher that passive voice and head hopping are now frowned upon. I would love to go back in time and tell myself to do more research into grammar and writing style, and not to read so many romance books written in the 1990s and earlier. The writing and publishing guidelines have changed over the years, and what was accepted back then is no longer accepted now, as least for beginners without a huge following.
