I Thought You Said This Would Work
This is both the title of my new book and what I say to my writer friends, agent, and publisher.
I say, “I wrote this book, do you like it? Is it working?”
And my people say, “Sort of, kind of, maybe, almost. Try this.”
Then I go back and I work and write and problem solve. I show it to my people and when they say get back to work, I say,
UGH, I thought you said this would work.
And finally, after time, my people say. “Hey, this works!”
In fact, this happened, I wrote this book, I sold it and it’s coming out April 2021 and this is what it’s about.
I THOUGHT YOU SAID THIS WOULD WORK
Samantha Holton and Holly Dunfee have two things in common. It’s not Samantha’s unwavering confidence conflict avoidance will lead to a happy life, nor is it Holly’s take-no-prisoners attitude or blistering sense of humor. Nope, the only things they have in common are that they despise each other and they love their best friend of twenty-five years, Katie Martin, their shared roommate in college.
The trouble is, Katie Martin’s cancer is back with a vengeance. Neither Samantha nor Holly can imagine a world without their friend in it and the two frenemies would do anything to make Katie’s life better even travel cross-country together to save Katie’s diabetic Great Pyrenees from euthanasia and bring the dog home.
To succeed, they will have to steal Katie’s ex-husband’s Winnebago, locate the dog, brave prejudice, a violent trucker, and their own crappy history and narrow-minded thinking. But neither woman will do Katie any good if they don’t confront a secret from their past that has weakened their bond. A bond that if strengthened, could be enough to save them all.
