Following is a list of all of our books/novels so far. Please Note: All books and words showing underlines are hyperlinks. We’ve had a few reviewers comment that the underlines are not used any longer to denote a book title. They didn’t notice the underlines were links to other books.
David was born in 1947 and Glenda was born in 1950. Of course, we used to underline book titles — that was standard in our day! BUT. As with everything else in life, editing and publishing, standards have moved on. So, we understand not to underline titles but rather to use italics. The underlines are simply to denote there is a link to each book.
Also, originally our books were listed as written by Glenda Clemens only. Glenda has finally convinced David that because he has a LOT of input in the stories and helps make the books better, he should be listed as an author too. Glenda comes up with the idea for a book and starts writing — what she calls the vomit draft. After several chapters she hands it over to David, then they talk. Really. No yelling or criticisms but just honest talking with critique. From there Glenda continues the story with David jumping in with ideas and structure suggestions. Luckily for Glenda, David does the major part of the editing.
From that point, we have Beta Readers who chime in with their thoughts and corrections. Then back to the drawing board and more editing. We are in the process of re-editing the early books. It’s amazing how much we’ve learned and how much difference we can make in each book. Below are listed our books and the links to Amazon. We are working on expanding each book’s distribution and will edit this page accordingly. For now, we hope you’ll read our books and leave reviews. Reviews are the lifeblood of authors.
