A mystery. The first book I ever wrote.
I knew nothing about writing except that I had this movie in my head and I had to get this story on paper. The Lucianos needed to come to life.
The first draft I thought was gold. I knew I’d be a New York Times best seller. I shared the manuscript with my family, who all claimed they loved it. Today, I am embarrassed I ever let them read it but thankful they were so encouraging. Their excitement kept me going over the next twenty years as I learned more about writing, editing and refining the craft. Absolution, the first draft, became The Luciano Series with four books in it…so far.
When A Second Chance went to print I was excited to see my dream come to life! It was the second book I wrote. But with Absolution, it’s my baby, the first one coming to life. It’s beyond exciting. It’s like seeing your child taking their first steps, hearing that first word, or seeing that first smile.
The Luciano’s have been in my head for so many years they are like family to me and very real. I know you will fall in love with them as much as I have!
One of my crit partners who edited Absolution and is now re-editing Mercy, book 2 in the Luciano series, sent me this yesterday…
Okay, so I’m only up to chapter 6 of Mercy, but I’ve fallen in love with Antony, AGAIN, darn you. LOL. I’m enjoying this all over again.
Oh, Antony…. Mmmmwwwwwwwwwwah! Renie (Irene Onorato-amazing author)
