Like most humans (especially the female ones), I wear many hats in life. Wife. Mother. Daughter. Friend, Employee. Volunteer. Blogger. For about a year, I have flirted with the idea of putting on the Writer hat – I have always wanted one, actually.
A tiny book idea is being coaxed into the open where it can mature. I have incredible friends and family in my corner, and I sincerely appreciate what they have done to encourage me to date. I can only imagine the gratitude I will express when I sit to write the Acknowledgements part of this book. If all goes well, others beyond my team of supporters will read it.
As this project unfolds, I will be dialing back the number of reviews on this blog… one of the reasons I have not put on my writer hat sooner was because of previous commitments. I have been a reading fool all year, and I LOVE getting books from friends, agents and publishers in exchange for honest reviews. I look forward to getting back to that in the new year. Until then, I will continue to participate in promo posts, excerpts, guest posts, interviews and author spotlights when possible. From time to time, I will post my thoughts on this writing journey as I make my way from here to there.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for following this blog. As of today, I have 1,480 subscribers via email, 877 likes on Facebook and 472 followers on Twitter. I have been wearing this Blogger hat for a year and a half, and it is truly humbling to know that friends, fellow book lovers & kindred spirits have supported this labor of love. – kris
