The month of January has a new meaning for me.
The month I:
- Began blogging
- I wrote a novel
- I found Blue Willow
- I met Ally Carter
- I realized I was a young adult author
Definitely wasn't going to try my hand at becoming a chef. The inspiration, however, was born, there I started a blog and began to write. Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Stephen King also inspired me.
All of you taught me to love books. Not just any books, Young Adult. A concept so foreign to me I was afraid to even visit the section in a bookstore.
I'm no longer afraid. I love to read and write young adult. It is where my passion is and will always be.
Thank you Blue Willow for showing me your love of books (especially young adult) and thank you bloggers for doing the same.
Now after all that sap and story telling we get to the good stuff.
BOOKS! Here is what I have to read... oh yes, I plan on reading all of them.
