I've never met Jackie Bouchard, but I consider her a good friend. She is someone I love and trust and has been such a great support to me during this self-publishing adventure. I loved her first novel, What the Dog Ate (such a great title) and cannot wait to read her second. Thanks for joining us, Jackie!
For one thing, the main character, Jane Bailey (I had to sneak Bailey’s name in there somehow!), would not stop talking to me. After she helped me get through the worst part of my grief, she wouldn’t shut up. She was all, like, “Oh, no, you don’t. You’re not just going to use me for your own needs and then toss me aside! I’ve got more to say!” (I tried to tell her to shut up and go away, but I created a monster.)
Thanks Sam for inviting me to guest post! I love this series and have enjoyed reading the other “Second Time Around” posts.
