Q&A Thursday with Cathy Tully!

Today’s Q&A Thursday is with Author Cathy Tully!

Enjoy & Comment!

What is the worst
thing you’ve written, how did you learn or know it was bad, and what did you
learn from it?
Well, that would have to be my first book, which I could
never sell. When I go back and look at it now, eight years later, I actually
laugh. But writing is a learning process, and with every book you write, you
get better : )
Why did you start
writing and when did you decide to go professional?
I started writing children’s non-fiction eight years ago.
When I turned that book in, Kidhaven Press decided that since Library sales
were so low, they were only going to use in-house authors…..so I turned to
romance and have been writing it since : )
Do you write in more
than one genre?
Which ones and which
do you like the best?
Yes, I do! I write, sweet romance, women’s fiction and
contemporary romance. I’d have to say women’s fiction is my favorite genre.
Maybe it’s because of my age, but I relate to that genre best.
Do you read other
author’s books when you’re writing? If so, do you read the same genre or
something different?
I’m always reading other author’s books. When I’m in the
middle of a new book, or starting a new book. I read mostly the genre’s I want
to write, but what I’m reading doesn’t necessarily have to be the genre I’m
currently writing in. 
What is the most
difficult part of the entire writing process for you? Queries, pitches,
editing..etc.
I find the waiting period awful! I’d rather have tooth
extracted without sedatives than wait another six months for a response. I’ve
gotten better at it, but still, I can’t stand it.
If you could have the
same type of career as any author currently publishing who would it be and why?
Lori Wilde or Kristin Higgins.   I love their books, and hope to one day join
them on the NYTimes Bestseller list J

travels to Promise, Massachusetts to look after her ailing grandmother where
