Real You: Authors, writing and the power of community!

The writing life can be very lonely. Especially for a first-time novelist who is naviagating a new industry of bookstores, bloggers, online sites, events all the while trying to pursue a dream. The dream? Quite simply: having a book in the hands (or on the screen) of a reader who it's perfect for. The reader who will love the story, be swept up by it, smile/laugh/cry/cheer. That's the ultimate goal and the biggest thrill. There are a lot of steps between my words and those hands. Along the way, I've met an astounding number of supportive authors. From the women who grace the cover of HERE, HOME, HOPE, to the many writers I've been blessed to have blog about the book and me, to the other writers who are friends in social media. It truly has been the unforseen blessing of the entire process.

And now, I'm so excited to be part of an amazing author event featuring 36 authors who have come together to support the launch of Melissa Foster's COME BACK TO ME. For three days, all of us have agreed to drop the prices of our eBooks to 99 cents! Fun, right? So, here is your opportunity to meet some of my wonderful author friends, try out some books from authors you may not have discovered yet and smile at the notion of the power of community. Head to the Women's Literary Cafe for the full details: Enjoy!
