What Makes My Heart Beat Faster by Rosie Green - Guest Post & Giveaway



About Rosie Green

Rosie Green has been scribbling stories ever since she was little. Back then they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by ‘the baddies’. Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all, unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.

Rosie’s brand new series of novellas is centred on life in a village café.

What makes my heart beat faster 
Guest post by Rosie Green

A fortune-teller once told me (when I was but a young thing of 25-ish) that I wouldn’t really ‘blossom’ until later in life. And I think she was right.

My dream was always to become a published author. The ten-year-old me wanted desperately to write like my heroine, Enid Blyton, whose books I devoured with a passion. And I did try. But it was another thirty-odd years before I eventually got serious about the business of writing a book – and a good few more before I finally wrote something worth publishing.

But I finally did ‘blossom’. That’s exactly how it feels. And now I keep having to pinch myself that I’m actually an author.

These last few years have been the most thrilling, nerve-racking, adventure-filled and chaotic of my life. It’s been a steep learning curve but hugely rewarding, too – and there are so many lovely things about the process of writing a book that make my heart beat a little bit faster!

Beginning a brand new book – now that is really exciting! Starting with a handful of characters and an idea of plot, and knowing that in just a few short weeks, these ‘stick figures’ will have filled out and become real people in my head.

Finishing a book also gives me quite a buzz. A book tends to pick up pace as the finale draws near and I find I write faster, too, caught up in the exciting world of my characters.

And there are plenty of moments during the writing of a book when I’ll have a ‘light bulb moment’. I love those times, when I suddenly have a great idea for a plot twist.

Of course, the greatest excitement of all is when publication day rolls around, and the book you’ve been working on for months – your precious book baby – is finally released into the world. I’m certain that no matter how many books I might write in the future (and I intend to write a lot!), publication day will always make my heart beat that little bit faster!

  17. Awww, I love the covers and the tea towel is gorgeous! We are lucky to live near a park with a pond so enjoy taking the "little monsters" to see the ducks. I remember also on holiday a few years ago, a duck came across the road (wasn't a very busy one) and was almost in the cottage we had hired for 2 weeks, it came quacking across to us and then sat outside the door waiting for a bit of bread. Once it had had a slice, it tootled off back across the road (we watched to make sure it got safely across).
