I have always been a firm believer in fate. There has always been something inside me that gave me a nudge in the right direction.
These nudges became a downright pounding on my gut when I started writing. I kept fighting them, because there is NOTHING scarier than putting something in your brain down on paper and handing that over to someone else. Well, being inside my brain could also be pretty terrifying, but that is a whole other story.
There are a few places that I have walked into and felt like I fit in. One of them happens to be an online community of woman that I met through my love of books. I started talking to them in the middle of the day, when I couldn't stand the thought of one more boring day folding laundry, and in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep. Women from all over the world came together to create a glorious group that helped me remember what I loved to do. Write.
Tomorrow my first ever book, A Love Worth Biting For, goes live. Some people will love it, and some people will hate it, and still others will get a smile on their face which is all I could ever ask for.
Tomorrow I get to become an author. I get to do something I dreamed about as a little girl locking up my Lisa Frank journal with the butterfly key.
Thank you to everyone who let me into your online family, you gave me my dream. Tomorrow, let's all sit down and read something naughty. I hope I give you a little something to shift in your seat over. I hope I make you smile.
I will be grinning from ear to ear.
Barnes & Noble
And many other ebook retailers who know how to have a good time. ;p
I will be toasting my new career all over the internet. Find me on FB, Twitter, and chatting with Mary Hughes over at her blog.
