August 27th, 2004 Chat with Cheryl St. John
21:44:11 [Jacqueline] Hi Cheryl! You’re early.
21:44:37 [CherylStJ] I had to figure out the Internet Explorer thing
21:44:46 [CherylStJ] Had never done it before
21:45:04 [CherylStJ] going for a drink
21:45:19 [lilsis] Hi, me neither
21:46:18 [lilsis] Am looking forward to the next book!
21:47:59 [lilsis] Are you having a book signing soon?
21:48:01 [CherylStJ] I’m back
21:48:22 [CherylStJ] I had one in Des Moines a couple weeks ago
21:48:51 [CherylStJ] and I’ll be doing one in Orange County in a couple of weeks
21:49:03 [lilsis] NO!!! I was in Des Moines a couple of weeks ago!
21:49:10 [CherylStJ] and then at RT in Kansas City in October
21:49:24 [CherylStJ] You were????
21:49:39 [lilsis] Just like passing you in the hospital several years ago when our mothers were both there.
21:50:08 [CherylStJ] on the 16th I was at Valley West Mall Waldenbooks
21:51:03 [CherylStJ] What’s your name, lilsis?
21:51:24 [lilsis] I stayed in Des Moines when we went to Ames for the Women of Faith Conference The nights of the 14 to the 17th
21:51:32 [lilsis] Connie
21:51:45 [CherylStJ] oh my goodness
21:52:11 [CherylStJ] bet that was good
21:52:12 [lilsis] I bought your last book that weekend!
21:52:29 [lilsis] Just not at that mall
21:52:33 [CherylStJ] I did see it everywhere on vacation
21:53:03 [CherylStJ] I’ve been to the Cornerstone church in DM
21:53:13 [lilsis] Love the conference and being there with a daughter made it very special.
21:53:28 [CherylStJ] sounds great
21:53:46 [CherylStJ] Hi chat
21:53:58 [Jacqueline] Welcome Lilsis and Chat
21:54:00 [lilsis] I have another Daughter in KC perhaps we will run into each other there in Oct.
21:54:02 [CherylStJ] I’m thrown off by having to put the curser back every time
21:54:18 [CherylStJ] I’ll be there for the RT convention
21:54:41 [CherylStJ] The big signing is Oct 18th
21:54:50 [CherylStJ] Hi rom
21:54:58 [Jacqueline] Welcome, Romnvlst
21:55:32 [Jacqueline] I planned to be at RT this year, but things came up and now I’m stuck at home…again
21:55:33 [lilsis] okay….perhaps this time we will not only be ships that pass so to speak
21:55:39 [Jacqueline] Hi Lainie!
21:55:42 [CherylStJ] This is like a costume ball <g> Not sure who the nicknames are
21:56:22 [Lainie] hi!
21:56:50 [CherylStJ] Jackie, do you handle the drawings?
21:57:02 [Jacqueline] Cheryl, we’ll wait a few minutes for others to show up before we begin the chat. Can you change your font to red, so you stand out?
21:57:13 [CherylStJ] Hi *lizzie!
21:57:26 [CherylStJ] Is that red?
21:57:36 [Jacqueline] I can draw, or you can draw. It’s up to you.
21:57:42 [*lizzie] Hey, All
21:57:48 [Jacqueline] Hi Lizzie!
21:57:50 [Lainie] Kim will be here but she’ll be a little late
21:57:55 [CherylStJ] I’d like for you to, please
21:58:17 [Jacqueline] It’s close enough to red for you. Okay, I’ll do it.
21:58:20 [CherylStJ] Susan, what does the PO stand for> <g>
21:58:30 [Jacqueline] Welcome Susan
21:58:38 [*lizzie] trying to get to black
21:58:46 [SusanP-O] Hello to everyone! PO stands for my last name of Pippiin-Osterberg. Thank you for the welcome!
21:58:48 [Jacqueline] Ouch!
21:58:57 [CherylStJ] I’ve never been here before so it took me a while to figure it out
21:59:00 [Jacqueline] that hurt my eyes, lizzie
21:59:18 [Lainie] I can’t read the green either
21:59:19 [*lizzie] Yikes mine too
21:59:21 [SusanP-O] Mine too!
21:59:31 [CherylStJ] Sorry, I thought perhaps you were another Susan who was having trouble getting in here
21:59:34 [*lizzie] now I’m where I should be
21:59:44 [lilsis] No green please
22:00:03 [SusanP-O] I didn’t have any trouble at all.
22:00:13 [CherylStJ] and who you should be <g>
22:00:35 [CherylStJ] *lizzie has some BIG news!
22:00:55 [Jacqueline] Spill it, lizzie

22:01:45 [CherylStJ] You know I’m so excited I can hardly stand it
22:01:48 [Jacqueline] Yes!!
22:01:51 [Lainie] congrats lizzie!
22:01:55 [SusanP-O] Congratulations, Lizzie!!
22:01:58 [lilsis] Wow! Congrats!
22:02:16 [*lizzie] Thanks all! I’m rather astounded by the whole thing
22:02:23 [Jacqueline] Congratulations, lizzie
22:02:48 [CherylStJ] does that mean green with envy??
22:02:59 [CherylStJ] how’d you do that?
22:04:00 [CherylStJ] Well, it’s a great story, and *lizzie has worked hard to get it marketable
22:04:23 [*lizzie] You’re my biggest fan right now! Thanks.
22:04:46 [CherylStJ] I saw you had a chat here a few weeks back but I coulnd’t make it
22:04:55 [CherylStJ] no problemo
22:05:28 [*lizzie] You missed a fun time!
22:05:30 [Jacqueline] Naw, just smiling for lizzie. If you click on the ? by the text box, it brings up the icons
22:05:37 [CherylStJ] Hi Teri
22:05:44 [Jacqueline] Welcome, Teri
22:05:54 [teri_chapm] Hello ladies
22:06:05 [CherylStJ] I’m afraid to click on ANYTHING for fear of getting kicked off
22:06:05 [SusanP-O] Hi Teri
22:06:18 [teri_chapm] so what have we been discussing?
22:06:33 [SusanP-O] I have those same fears when it comes to computers!
22:06:38 [CherylStJ] It’s been fun seeing my book everywhere I went this month
22:06:43 [lilsis] Good Cheryl I thought I was the only one feeling that!
22:07:01 [CherylStJ] it was even al Mall of America at a place called Book Warehouse
22:07:30 [CherylStJ] I went vacationing with a box of books and a roll of stickers
22:07:54 [CherylStJ] gave away books along the way–to waitresses and such
22:08:21 [CherylStJ] one to the girl who helped me buy a suit
22:08:41 [lilsis] I took your books with me to a mountain top in Colorado to read.
22:08:49 [CherylStJ] shameless promotion

22:12:27 [Jacqueline] Welcome Glenda and Susan!
22:12:33 [CherylStJ] Hi Glenda and Susan
22:12:48 [Jacqueline] You have a very impressive bio, Cheryl.

We’ll be using protocol so please type “?” to ask a question and “!” to make a comment and “ga” to signify “go ahead” when you’re finished.
22:13:17 [CherylStJ] makes me sound good, huh?
22:13:28 [CherylStJ] You should see me tonight
22:13:38 [Jacqueline] You are good. Can you tell us about your latest release?
22:13:54 [CherylStJ] in my RWA 96 Tshirt
22:14:18 [CherylStJ] Sure–it’s part of the popular Montana Mavericks series
22:14:30 [CherylStJ] but of course the story stands alone
22:14:55 [CherylStJ] it’s about a footloose pilot and a sensible lady doctor
22:15:20 [CherylStJ] who fall fast and hard, and then have to deal with their impulsiveness
22:15:21 [teri_chapm] Cheryl how long did it take after you sent a ms did you hear from the publisher?
22:15:31 [CherylStJ] I had a lot of fun writing it
22:16:01 [CherylStJ] well, I submitted things hand over fist when I started out

22:16:18 [CherylStJ] and stuff in the slush pile takes months and months
22:16:28 [Jacqueline] Hi Julie
22:16:40 [Jacqueline] <Does lizzie need the tape?>
22:16:43 [CherylStJ] it really varies with the publisher
22:16:51 [teri_chapm] Do you enjoy reading as well as writing?
22:16:52 [julie] Hi!
22:16:55 [CherylStJ] and whether or not you have an agent
22:17:10 [CherylStJ] I LOVE to read! It’s why I write
22:17:14 [Jacqueline] ?
22:17:19 [CherylStJ] ga
22:17:50 [Glenda] ?
22:18:07 [Jacqueline] Cheryl, have you ever had a signing in Montana? I live there so…
22:18:28 [Jacqueline] ga
22:18:32 [CherylStJ] No, I haven’t, but I would sure love to
22:18:54 [CherylStJ] I’m taking invitations from RWA chapters to speak at their meetings and conferences
22:19:04 [CherylStJ] and they always have a signing

22:19:54 [Jacqueline] No chapter here.
22:19:59 [CherylStJ] IN fact I go to Orange County next month
22:20:04 [CherylStJ] bummer
22:20:18 [Jacqueline] yep
22:20:26 [Jacqueline] ga, Glenda
22:20:39 [Glenda] Cheryl, you said you love to read. Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
22:20:46 [Susan] ?
22:21:06 [Lainie] Hi and welcome. We’re chatting with author Cheryl St. John tonight. To enter your name, please type it in the upper left hand name box and then type “enter”. We’ll be using protocol so please type “?” to ask a question and “!” to make a comment and “ga” to signify “go ahead” when you’re finished.
22:21:11 [CherylStJ] I cut my reading/writing teeth on LaVryle Spencer
22:21:37 [CherylStJ] I also read all the divas like Jude Devereaux
22:21:54 [CherylStJ] and as romance evolved I loved Pam Morsi
22:22:03 [CherylStJ] Maggie Osborne
22:22:13 [CherylStJ] Megan Chance
22:22:38 [CherylStJ] I loved the old Erin St.Clairs and Lisa Gregorys
22:23:01 [CherylStJ] I try to read a variety of authors
22:23:16 [CherylStJ] both contemp and historical
22:23:40 [CherylStJ] but it’s reading romance that inspires me to write my own
22:23:51 [CherylStJ] it always has
22:24:08 [CherylStJ] although I love Stephen King and Janet Evanovich
22:24:15 [teri_chapm] ?
22:24:43 [CherylStJ] but their books don’t make me jump up and head for my desk like a Susan E Phillips or a Paula Detmer Riggs or Kristin hannah
22:24:49 [CherylStJ] ga
22:24:57 [Jacqueline] ga, Susan
22:25:01 [Glenda] That’s all. Thank you. ga
22:25:04 [teri_chapm] I wanted to know if you find yourself sacrificing your reading time to write?
22:25:22 [CherylStJ] oh yeessssssssss
22:25:37 [julie] ?
22:25:40 [Glenda] Hey Mo!!!
22:25:54 [Moe] Hi Glenda
22:25:57 [Moe] Everyone
22:26:02 [Moe] Sorry for interrupting.
22:26:04 [Jacqueline] Hi, Moe!
22:26:34 [teri_chapm] ?
22:27:46 [Lainie] Hi and welcome. We’re chatting with author Cheryl St. John tonight. To enter your name, please type it in the upper left hand name box and then type “enter”. We’ll be using protocol so please type “?” to ask a question and “!” to make a comment and “ga” to signify “go ahead” when you’re finished.
22:27:54 [Jacqueline] Oh no!
22:27:59 [Glenda] uh oh
22:28:13 [Lainie] did we forget the shoe glue?
22:28:17 [*lizzie1] Tape?
22:28:31 [Glenda] welcome back!
22:28:31 [Jacqueline] Evidently we did….
22:28:38 [CherylStJ] woops
22:28:39 [Jacqueline] wb, Cheryl!
22:28:43 [teri_chapm] So how do you do both? Do you?
22:28:57 [CherylStJ] as I was saying before I was so rudely booted…
22:29:15 [CherylStJ] reading is an important part of my motivation
22:29:26 [CherylStJ] so I try to read at least a book a week
22:29:44 [CherylStJ] I have a stack beside my bed and try to read each night
22:30:08 [CherylStJ] if I read during the day it’s instructional or research
22:30:21 [CherylStJ] ga
22:30:38 [Jacqueline] ga, Teri
22:30:43 [Lainie] Hi and welcome. We’re chatting with author Cheryl St. John tonight. To enter your name, please type it in the upper left hand name box and then type “enter”. We’ll be using protocol so please type “?” to ask a question and “!” to make a comment and “ga” to signify “go ahead” when you’re finished.
22:31:07 [teri_chapm] Do you find yourself doing lots of research?
22:31:19 [Lainie] Jacqueline> I keep freezing and my system’s going very slowly. I hope to stay, but don’t know if my computer will let me
22:31:28 [CherylStJ] it depends
22:31:48 [Susan] ?
22:31:49 [CherylStJ] not for my historicals because I’ve done my time periods so often
22:31:54 [teri_chapm] thanks. ga
22:32:11 [CherylStJ] but I often need something specific like horses or ranch info
22:32:12 [Glenda] ?
22:32:22 [CherylStJ] or how something was done
22:32:42 [CherylStJ] and you can make up a lot of stuff with Indian cures
22:33:02 [CherylStJ] actually I do more research for my contemporaries
22:33:32 [teri_chapm] !
22:33:38 [CherylStJ] because there are really doctors and nurses and people who hold the positions I write about–like a pilot
22:33:52 [teri_chapm] ?oops.
22:33:54 [CherylStJ] so I have to know the facts and be credible
22:34:12 [CherylStJ] I love the Internet for researching settings
22:34:27 [CherylStJ] My current WIP is set in Oregon
22:34:49 [CherylStJ] and I had a ball learning about Cannon Beach and sending my characters there
22:35:05 [CherylStJ] sometimes–like for the book on the shelves right now
22:35:17 [CherylStJ] it has a Seattle ferry scene
22:35:29 [CherylStJ] and I found a live web cam!
22:35:32 [CherylStJ] ga
22:35:42 [Jacqueline] ga, Julie
22:36:07 [julie] Cheryl, which one of your books is your favorite
22:36:29 [CherylStJ] ooh that’s difficult to say
22:36:53 [CherylStJ] I ususally think the current one is my favorite AFTER it’s finished
22:37:13 [CherylStJ] but I could say I have a couple of favorites
22:37:22 [CherylStJ] Joe’s Wife
22:37:28 [CherylStJ] Saint or Sinner
22:37:50 [CherylStJ] ga
22:38:27 [Jacqueline] ga, Susan
22:38:38 [Susan] I don’t know if my Q came through before, because the chat froze. Here it is: I recently read Marry Me. . .Again, and loved it. Could you tell us how that story came about?
22:38:55 [CherylStJ] Sure
22:39:07 [CherylStJ] no, your question didn’t come through before
22:39:22 [CherylStJ] that was part of an in line continuity
22:39:34 [CherylStJ] Montana Mavericks
22:39:52 [CherylStJ] the editors come up with ideas for 6 to 12 books at a time
22:40:04 [CherylStJ] with a theme or plot that runs through all
22:40:26 [CherylStJ] they write about a 2 page idea of what they want the story to be about
22:40:41 [CherylStJ] and then they invite the authors they want to write them
22:41:02 [CherylStJ] so i got 2 pages about Devlin Holmes and Brynna the doctor
22:41:36 [CherylStJ] without conflict or plot, because, well basically, editors are clueless IMHO when it comes to creating a workable story
22:42:05 [lilsis] ?
22:42:11 [Susan] !
22:42:30 [CherylStJ] so then the author is left to not only make her story work within this frame, but also coordinate with the other authors and charcacters who flow throughout
22:42:38 [CherylStJ] it’s a major challenge
22:43:11 [CherylStJ] I’ve done several now, so I don’t freak when I see the stupid idea they gave me
22:43:31 [Jacqueline] <I have Glenda, Teri, then lilsis in line. We’ll begin the drawing after their questions are answered>
22:43:46 [CherylStJ] I cheerfully cash the check and come up with my own internal conflict that will carry the story
22:43:58 [CherylStJ] is that kind of what you wanted to know Susan?
22:44:23 [Susan] Yup. BTW, you did a terrific job.
22:44:38 [Susan] I highly recommend it.
22:44:42 [CherylStJ] thank you, Ma’am
22:44:57 [Jacqueline] ga, Glenda
22:44:59 [Glenda] Cheryl, how many books have your written? Are they all romance?
22:45:30 [CherylStJ] I am contracted for numbers 19,20 and 21 right now
22:45:36 [CherylStJ] and working on 19
22:45:48 [CherylStJ] and yes they are all romances
22:46:33 [CherylStJ] btw, #20 was a story I started for The Book Of My Heart Contest
22:46:45 [CherylStJ] I can’t wait to get back to it and write it all
22:47:21 [Lainie] Hi Kim!
22:47:30 [Jacqueline] Hi Kim!
22:47:58 [CherylStJ] hello Kim
22:47:59 [Glenda] ga
22:48:02 [Jacqueline] Is it the Book of your Heart, Cheryl?
22:48:27 [KimCox] Hi!
22:48:48 [CherylStJ] Yes, it really is. I am having to change it a little to sell it, but it’s a story I can’t wait to tell
22:49:10 [CherylStJ] I did a big no no and killed a child at the beginning
22:49:14 [Jacqueline] That’s great
22:49:23 [Jacqueline] Not that!
22:49:31 [Glenda] great? lol.
22:49:39 [Moe] Good Timing Jacki
22:49:43 [Jacqueline] I meant that you’re writing the book of your heart.
22:49:47 [CherylStJ] I knew what you meant
22:50:08 [CherylStJ] they let the dead child stay
22:50:14 [Jacqueline] ga Teri
22:50:18 [teri_chapm] Did you find it difficult to send your first ms to a publisher? Was there alot of stress over it?
22:50:26 [CherylStJ] trusted me I guess
22:50:36 [CherylStJ] no, not in mailing stuff out
22:50:58 [CherylStJ] the stress cam when I had my first editor appointment at a conference
22:51:15 [CherylStJ] I spent the whole morning in the bathroom
22:51:57 [CherylStJ] she asked for the ms, then rejected it because the hero was unromantic
22:52:05 [Glenda] awwww
22:52:13 [CherylStJ] but it sold to harlequin later
22:52:20 [KimCox] ?
22:52:25 [CherylStJ] Rain Shadow
22:52:33 [CherylStJ] and got a RITA nomination
22:53:01 [Glenda] woooooo!
22:53:18 [CherylStJ] yup–that was 10 years ago
22:53:38 [CherylStJ] I’ve done about 2 books a year since
22:53:49 [teri_chapm] good 4 you!
22:54:12 [Jacqueline] Okay, last question goes to Kim
22:54:14 [CherylStJ] I had another one ready as soon as the first one sold
22:54:21 [CherylStJ] that was a big help
22:54:34 [KimCox] I was going to ask if the rejected ms ever sold, but already answered.
22:54:42 [KimCox] so, I want to ask which house rejected it?
22:55:01 [KimCox] ga
22:55:06 [CherylStJ] It was Judith Stern at Berkely at that time
22:55:18 [CherylStJ] she’s changed her name since I think
22:55:36 [CherylStJ] and I think she’s at another house
22:55:49 [CherylStJ] never burn a bridge with an editor
22:56:01 [KimCox] amen
22:56:02 [CherylStJ] they always show up again at the next place
22:56:15 [Jacqueline] <editorial witness relocation program? LOL>
22:56:30 [CherylStJ] LOL!
22:56:40 [CherylStJ] yeah, but I can still find her
22:57:03 [CherylStJ] and someday I will send her a picture of me with a RITA
22:57:14 [CherylStJ] she can change her name but she can’t hide
22:57:24 [Jacqueline] Good plan
22:57:38 [Jacqueline] Okay, lets give away some books!
22:57:44 [KimCox] just wait until she retires
22:57:57 [CherylStJ] yes, I have that lovely finalist certificate on my wall
22:58:03 [CherylStJ] okay!
22:58:31 [CherylStJ] drumroll please……….
