On this episode of “The Romantic Side of Suspense,” I chat with Jessica R. Patch, who writes inspirational contemporary romance and romantic suspense. She is the author of the Seasons of Hope series, Unleashing Love, and ten Love Inspired Suspense novels including the popular Security Specialists series and the Storm Chaser series. You can find her spending time at home in Mississippi with her family and collecting recipes to amazing dishes she’ll probably never cook. Jessica is represented by Rachel Kent of Books & Such Literary Management.
“It’s easy and it’s not easy to write,” Jessica said. “If you’re a seat-of-the-pants writer—if you just make it up as you go, and that’s how I was originally—having a manuscript is fantastic because once it’s done, you write your proposal and send it in. But when you start selling on proposal, they want a full synopsis, which can be about seven to 10 pages.”
