Rachel Jones is a new to me writer, but I’m so excited I’ve found her.
I’m Rachel Jones and I write contemporary romance. My love for the performing arts has been the backbone for the two novels I’ve published and is present in the third that is nearing completion. I began my professional life as a music teacher. Then twenty-seven years ago, I became a night shift RN in the maternal/child arena. This part of me has found its way into my manuscripts as well.
Today I want to share a few things about the production of my debut novel, To Dance One More Day. The tag line: a broken ballerina repaired by the love of a trauma surgeon.
My daughter studied ballet for eight years, and I fell in love with that dance form. When I became serious about writing a novel, I wanted a ballerina for my heroine. I decided her career should be challenged by a medical diagnosis to provide some of the medical drama I interjected into the storyline. As I outlined the plot, it was a natural progression that my hero would be a physician. Also, a man that had an interest in supporting his community.
I enjoyed checking out ballets for my novel. My fieldwork took me as far as the Internet. Though live performances would have pushed my enjoyment up a notch, YouTube was sufficient for my purpose.
While researching, I decided to make a book trailer to place on YouTube. Here is the link for the book trailer we produced. Take a moment to view it and then comment below if you’d like to be in the drawing for a signed copy of To Dance One More Day.
