"Welcome Author GAYLE HAYES!"
~~~About The Author~~~
The exhilaration of having written a complete novel was followed by more hard work, querying literary agents, who might represent Gayle to publishers. Half of the forty-five agents queried , responded by saying that they were not the right agent. They encouraged Gayle to keep trying. Instead, she took a stab at self-publishing at Amazon, and was encouraged by the response to Summer Solstice. She set about writing a sequel. Then, she got right to work on the final book of the trilogy. After putting the last novel on hold, while recuperating from surgery and traveling with her husband, Gayle finished it, resolving to take a break and enjoy the Christmas holidays. Instead, she was driven by the need to write 'The Sunset Witness' and did not stop writing it, until it was finished.
'The Sunset Witness' was a stylistic departure from the first three novels, now unpublished. While she waited for reviews, Gayle wrote 'The Scrimshaw Set.' Then, after two years of intense writing and promoting, Gayle decided to take a break to recharge her creative energy and decide whether stay the course, or chart a new one.
