On the Making of My Convent Novel | Three Worlds One Vision - Publishing
Written by JoAnn Chateau

Fellow-blogger Rosaliene Bacchus has a new novel coming out soon. The Twisted Circle is inspired by real-life experiences, and it looks like it’ll be a dramatic, exotic, multi-layered read…

“When my friend and poet, Angela Consolo Mankiewicz, told me that my second novel had to be about my life in the convent, I balked at the idea. To embark on a journey back to a time and place that caused me grief would require some meaningful purpose…” ~ Rosaliene Bacchus

  • Thanks for sharing, JoAnn, and thanks for your optimism regarding publication. I have to forward it to my copy-editor for proofreading, and then begin the next task of finding a publisher.

    • Ohh, I assumed. Silly me. Would you ever consider self-publication? I have a young friend who’s been publishing on Amazon for 2-3 years, and he’s beginning to make money. (I expect him to be picked up by a publisher one day.)

      Anyway, the writing work on your recent novel is done. That’s the real accomplishment.
