Abbi Glines Anthologies
|1||Cop Tales||2018||Description / Buy|
She was 18 when she left with her high school sweetheart. She married him, paving the way for a life filled with hectic schedules and demanding school activities. The author’s life is never dull. She maintains a pace that few other authors can match.
Glines publishes so many novels each year because it only takes her a week to write her first draft. On most days, she writes for six to eight hours. But she isn’t afraid to work for 12 hours straight where necessary.
Juggling her writing schedule with the demands of her family is challenging. Sometimes, she overworks herself. She has to take deliberate steps to keep from burning out. But she wouldn’t change a thing because she has dreamed of writing fiction ever since she was a child.
Though, at the end of the day, Glines’ family comes first. She won’t hesitate to put her manuscript aside to focus on her children. The author’s interest in stories was born at a young age.
As a child, she was always telling stories. Unfortunately, she presented some of her stories as though they had actually happened. Her mother did not appreciate Glines’ penchant for telling lies. However, she also noticed that her daughter had a gift, which is why she bought Glines a notebook when she was nine.
Glines was expected to put her stories on paper rather than telling them to other people. The notebook changed the author’s life. It introduced her to the joys of writing. She started dreaming of a future in which she wrote for a living.
It took several years for her dream to come true. ‘Breathe’, her first novel, came out in 2011. While it wasn’t the first story she had ever written, it was the first novel she wrote to completion.
She had started several novels in the past but she had failed to finish them because her abilities as a writer were lacking. When she completed ‘Breathe’, the author realized that she had successfully eliminated the weaknesses in her craft. She was finally ready to give writing and publishing a serious go.
Back then, the author made the mistake of using a small indie publisher. She did not know any better. It took her a while to realize that the indie publisher had nothing to offer her career. She encourages aspiring authors to focus their publishing efforts on the five biggest publishers on the market.
Otherwise, they are better off self-publishing their manuscripts. Glines has emphasized the importance of hiring a professional editor and cover artist. She believes that newcomers should start by nurturing a loyal fanbase through platforms like Amazon and Barns & Noble as opposed to hunting for traditional publishers and agents.
Glines eventually became a traditionally published author. However, the years she spent in the self-publishing arena had transformed the writer, teaching her everything she needed to know about the industry. In 2011, when her first novel debuted, Glines was not ready to navigate the waters of traditional publishing.

Fallen Too Far: Blaire Wynn was naïve. She had dedicated the last few years of her teenage life to her sick mother. Now, she was starting over, having abandoned Alabama for Florida in the wake of her mother’s death.
Life in Florida was complicated. Her rich father had a new wife. The couple had gone to Paris for the summer, leaving Blaire alone with her stepbrother. Suddenly, the spacious beach house was too small.
Blaire couldn’t stay away from Rush, a gorgeous young man that kept getting under her skin. Rush knew better than to surrender to his feelings for his step-sister. She was off-limits. But he couldn’t keep his hands to himself.
Never Too Far: Blaire had ruined her life. She had dared to fall for her stepbrother. Rush had responded to her feelings by revealing a secret that shattered her world. She couldn’t forgive him, so she fled back to Alabama. But Rush had no intention of giving up on Blaire.
