I shared this in my recent author newsletter, but am letting my faithful blog readers know, too: I’ve decided to participate in #the100DayProject! This project encourages people to do something every day for 100 days. Typically, this is something creative (crafting, knitting, drawing, even writing or other forms of art and creation). For my project, I’ve decided to do something a little bit different and give you a sneak peek at my author life through posts on this blog.
Why did I decide to do this? Because of you, my wonderful readers! I’ve wanted to let you in behind-the-scenes and saw this as an opportunity to finally share some parts of my life that you don’t always hear me talk about. Being an author – just like anyone else pursuing their dreams – has its ups and downs, and I wanted to share an honest look with you as to what my author life is like for me. As you loyal readers will know, I had health issues last year that I still sometimes struggle with, so even posting every day might prove challenging, but I’m going to give it my best shot.
Does this mean you’ll stop writing books? Definitely not! As an update: Royals 10 is with my editor (which means I’ll need to work on it once it’s back to me), Seaside Valleria 1 & 2 are also both very nearly done, and I’m already writing Seaside Valleria 3. So, writing these posts won’t detract from my lofty writing goals. I’ll just be sharing a lot about the writing process, the business of writing books, the process behind making covers, and more. (That means you could get sneak peeks of those, too!)
I hope by sharing parts of my life with you – the good, the bad, and the hopefully not too ugly – that you’ll gain a better understanding of my author life. I’ll be using #100DaysofMKAuthorLife so you can track my posts at my blog and across social media.
Want to follow me on my journey? I’ll be posting these ONLY on the Royal Blog (which is hosted on my sister site). If you’d like to subscribe (or update your current subscription), you can do so here.
Is there a topic about my author life you’d like to hear about? Hit reply (if you’re getting this as an email) or comment below on the blog post and let me know. I’d love to hear from you!
This is Post 1 of 100 as part of the #100DaysofMKAuthorLife.
