So much has happened to me in the past few months that I almost feel as if I am a completely different person. I have given up on a dream that I chased for over five years... I have been hurt by a friend that I thought would end up being something so much more... I have managed to meet and hold on to a new bestie that I know will be in my life forever... And now... Well now, I am ready to put myself back out there. Ready to put my heart on the line for something that could potentially be an amazing choice. Now, some people may wonder why I am writing about this at all, but for those of you who are authors, you know that anything and everything in life can inpsire you and encourage you and since all of these emotions are prevelant for me right now, they are coming through into my writing. The question is... Is this a good thing or a bad thing? The jury is still out on that! I can say that for the first time in so many years, I feel hopeful, I feel inspired, I feel alive in a way that I haven't in such a long time. Is it too soon? Is it too fast? Is it too much? For now, it's totally awesome and in a way, one of the best things that could have ever happened to me.
The next book that will be released is something different. Something raw and emotional for me. Something that isn't paranormal, but just extraordinarily real and deep and... perfect. Perfect because it's not sugar coated, it's not magical in the sense that my other books are, it's not happily ever after for every character. It's real. It's dirty and it's messy and it's full of hope and faith... two things that I am holding on to right now with my eyes wide open and my heart on my sleeve. It's life. And if it does one thing for any person who reads it... my hope is that it inspires you to let go and live life each day without regret and without fear. Grab hold of anything and anyone that makes you happy, that brings a smile to your face or a tingle into your heart, take risks and know that everything that comes along with it is part of the ride... If I can bring that feeling into even just one person's world... well then, it's all been worth it.
