Beachwalk Press has graciously offered to sponsor the Grand Prize giveaway which is: $100.00 to either Amazon or Barnes and Noble (winner's choice). Additional prizes will be chosen and awarded by the participating authors.
Now, we've each been tasked with sharing what we love about writing. Here are my thoughts on the subject.
Three things I love about being a writer.
1) For starters, I feel tremendously fortunate to have the opportunity to write. I wanted to be an author since I was eleven years old, so this is a dream come true. It’s truly a labor of love for me, one I enjoy and look forward to.
2) Working from home is awesome. I’m a homebody anyway, so being allowed to wear my comfortable jammie bottoms and whatever top I grab—and skip the bloody bra—is fantastic.
3) I love immersing myself in words. Whether I’m reading for pleasure, research, or simply mental nourishment, wrapping myself in words is a heady pleasure. Now imagine the decadent thrill of actually manipulating words—shaping, compressing, stretching, and snapping them. They shatter, flex, heave, bend, and pulse with energy. They can have mass and weight or float away like a soap bubble. Wet and slippery or stuck fast, they convey exactly what we want them to. The options are limitless. It’s our imaginations and selections that make everything we create unique. I love that, most of all.

Here it is.
What season captures romance best in your mind? Do you love warm summer strolls, picnics, or beaches? Maybe snuggling in front of a flickering fire after a day of skiing is more your style. How about the smell of autumn in the air, fallen leaves crackling as you canter beneath a glorious canopy? Maybe spring thrills you, the return of vibrant greens and bold flowers expressing the urgency to celebrate life and love.
Let me know and you'll automatically be entered in the drawing.
