Welcome to Day 7 of #RRBC’s October #SpotlightAuthor #PatGarcia @pat_garcia! @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA #RRBCSA

Please allow me to introduce independently published author, Pat Garcia, member of Rave Reviews Book Club and Rave Writers International Society of Authors and author of the published short story, Turn the Light On. Read on as Pat shares some of her experiences with writing groups and how they have encouraged and inspired her!

WRITING ORGANIZATIONS THAT SUPPORT ME MENTALLY AND SPIRITUALLY

John Donne once said that “No man is an island.” I believe that. Therefore, I think that no writer can write a book alone. We need people on our side that are rooting for us; people who are willing to help us get to the next level.

In 2014, I received a big shock. The person who was pulling for me the most was diagnosed with a terminal illness, and the clock began to tick, with us not knowing how much time we had left. 

During these times, I learned how precious it was to open email messages from the organizations that I belong to. I wasn’t an active member of these organizations, but I always read the correspondence from them, and even read the books they would recommend. In other words, I kept my memberships alive. I also continued to write.

RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, better known as the RRBC, the Romance Writers of America (RWA), the Insecure Writers Support Group, and WEP, kept my passion for writing alive.  When I was finally ready to add Author to my resume, it was natural for me to ask 4WillsPublishing if they could assist me in getting my first baby published. They were more than willing to put up with a new kid on the block. From the book cover to the blurb, to the final edit, and the book trailer, 4WillsPub was right there by my side every step of the way.

I was a happy, but tired trooper when Turn The Light On went live on Amazon. Birthing that first (book) baby was an experience that I will never forget. I firmly believe that the principles I believe in, brought that book into being, and I got the assistance I greatly needed from an organization that I trusted and relied upon.

For the last time, I turn back to Della and Alessio. Della accepts the change in her fate, and her parting feelings are shown.

A solemnness about the moment, and what she had just committed herself to, gripped her heart. One year of silent intimacy with Alessio Terracina, had shown her how to cherish the silent moments of love. The quest to know him in the chaotic darkness of a world he deemed necessary to protect at all costs, would be her challenge.

Every writer comes to the point where they make a commitment. Silence becomes a hindrance, and they step out into the publishing world. Whether via an Indie Publisher or a traditional Publisher, we all desire to see our books shine in the best light, because what we write represents our vision of how we see the world. I am very thankful that 4WillsPublishing gave me their best when they assisted with my first book. Turn The Light On has a beautiful warm glow, and that is exactly what I desired.  

AUTHOR BIO

Pat Garcia can’t remember a day when she didn’t desire to write. At the age of three, Pat wrote her first story. No one could understand it because she hadn’t learned to write. So, she read the scribble on her paper to whoever would listen. Born in Blythe, Georgia, (USA), she is also a musician, singer, and songwriter and has released five CDs.

BOOK BLURB

Would you ever accept a dinner invitation to meet a stranger who never spoke one word to you during your time together? Would you accept that you could not even sit at the same table with them? How about, you don’t even know their name and you continue this “game” for months?

Meet Della Cartwright. A superstar at what she does professionally, but when the tall, mysterious, Italian stranger, Alessio Terracina, enters her world, she begins to question her judgment and everything about her.

In this short story which takes place over the course of one day, this otherwise savvy businesswoman is led into making decisions that could jeopardize her professional life and maybe even cost her her freedom. But the greatest danger…just might be to her fragile heart.

  1. Hi Pamela, thank you for hosting Pat with this lovely article. The publications of each of my books has been equally momentums, but the first one does have a special place in your heart. There is something very satisfying about seeing your name on a book for the very first time.
