Theresa Ragan: Lost in Time
This is an awesome story of an author who spent 19 years trying to get a book published, finally released it on her own, and has sold over 160,000 books in the last 10 months. The synopsis of her book sounds very interesting. Twin girls born in medieval times, one of them is sickly and sent to the future for medical aid. At the age of 24, not knowing anything of her origins, she is whisked back to the past and into a forced marriage, and no one will believe her story. Very cool twist.
But it’s the time-traveling the author endured that really moves me. 19 years of querying, landing an agent, performing 20,000-word edits at the behest of potential publishers, all to no avail. And then the desperation of self-publishing two decades later.
Welcome to the future, Theresa! And congratulations. What an incredible story of perseverance and coming out on top.
