Series: The Binge and Purge Method

I have a problem.

I read a series until complete, and not remember half of it. I am a binge reader. I will read the series in its entirety, skipping meals, laying in bed, foregoing a night out on the town, etc until it is complete. The problem?

Just. Keep. Writing.

Great Inspiration.

Hey there, lovelies!

I know it’s been awhile since I posted. I’ve spent the last few months buried under deadlines and finishing up coursework–so far this year I’ve gone to grad school, and written and edited THREE books, all coming out next year–and getting ready to head back to Nashville.

Recently, I am at a crossroads in my life and have repeatedly been asked what I want to do, or what it is that I like to do. Jokingly I replied that I should write a book, however, I can’t seem to get this “joke” out of my head. The thought has consumed me. The giant elephant in the room, where my conscience continues to wonder day and night, the voices, the subtle whispers, all I can think is…. WRITE… WRITE….

So begins my plunge into the unknown.
