Hi Cheryl! First of all, congrats on the release of your novel, THE CARNELIAN LEGACY!
Q: What would you like the world to know about Cheryl Hettick?
A: I love to write and I love to share
with others. When I combine these two things together, I create
something that I hope will last and resonate with many generations.
Q: Can you give a small blurb about what we can expect from this book?
A: Eighteen-year-old Marisa MacCallum
always knew the man of her dreams was out there somewhere. The problem
is--he's in another dimension.
Q: You've signed with WestBow Press. I'd love to know the details on how this came about and how you like working with them.
A: I am a firm believer that everything
happens for a reason. After searching for almost a year for a literary
agent (without success) I began to question the entire process of going
the "traditional" route. Just because I couldn't find someone to fall in
love with my story didn't mean that it wasn't worth publishing. When I
decided to go with WestBow, I was a little apprehensive at first, but
the folks there have been kind and gracious the entire way. I have
enjoyed learning the process of steps that turn a manuscript into a
physical book and looking back now, I wouldn't have done it any other
your blog, you made the announcement that in Sept 2012 that CARNELIAN LEGACY would be published (squee)! And lookie here, the time has arrived only six months later! That's so fast! What have you had to
do to prepare for this big moment?

one of my main characters, I am a recovering perfectionist and am always

Ready. Get Set. Fast five:
Q: Fill in the blank - If I were a shoe, I'd be a ______________?
A: Manolo Blahnik
Q: Favorite place?
A: Cannon Beach, Oregon
face to face with the entrance of a cave. All is black inside, except
for the red rimmed eyes of a creature. What happens next?
A: I would send in my fearless main character, Darian Fiore with his Excalibur to defend me.
Q: Rainy days and sweatpants or sunny days and a swimsuit?
What does your future hold?
A: I'm an Oregon girl at heart. Rainy days and sweatpants!
