Welcome to Victoria Pinder’s Site.
I’m so happy you stopped in to check me out. If you came because of Mything You by Greta Buckle, that’s me. So no worries.
Woot, woot, In 2013 I can now call myself an author soon. This is the reason for the site. How did this happen? Well I wrote a manuscript. After writing that story, I asked myself, well what does one do next? I googled online and saw this event happening in two months, Romance Writers of America National Convention. Sounded perfect. Agents and editors and learning. I’m in. Signed up, called a friend who lived there to stay with her and voila, I’m not attending a conference. And I jumped right into volunteering to meet people. I stuffed those bags, and talked to other writers who hadn’t finished a book. Now I was scared.
After that hard work, I needed a drink. Other writers were there. And it took about two minutes of agents and editors talking about what they look for. My book wasn’t any of that. Drat.
But I also learned so much more. How to write correctly.
I tried hard to fix that terrible manuscript. And I’m super stubborn. The Aquarius in me is a rule breaker. It’s hard to follow and do what I’m told. It’s not in my nature. And there is always the exception to every rule or there is another way. Yep, and I have well over a hundred rejections piled up on that manuscript that I tried to fix. I even have another 90K sequel to that book done too. Sigh. Mything you became my way to do something else.
Everyday I learn something.
Now it’s 2013, I sold four manuscripts to two different publishers. Two Weeks in Miami comes out from Corvallis Press. The Zoastra Affair will come out from Soul Mate Publishing, and I have to say this editor seems super cool to me. I like Soul Mate. They bought Chaperoning Paris and Scared to Love from me too.
Plus, I have quite a few other stories in the works or to tell. Nora Roberts has 200 books, so there is a LONG way to go.
If you didn’t come to talk books, I’m open in my blog to talk about whatever anyone wants within reason.
Look around. I do love making youtube videos. I’m on that way more than any other site, watching videos.
Never take yourself too seriously. For my day job they make us dance. Wedding Anthem was my idea in 2013 though chose to go on a cruise instead of practice. We dance every year and will try to find the classic 2011 and 2012 editions of the Evolution of Dance and A night to Remember. Did I mention I’m a horrible dancer? You can clearly tell. in these epic disasters of my performances.
