In January 2014, I made a New Year’s resolution to finally write a book from start to finish. Up until that point, I’d start a book then stop. I’d taken creative writing classes while pursuing a degree and fell in love with writing. I just couldn’t seem to finish a story.
I’m usually anti New Year’s resolutions because I believe I’ll never finish them. But something about that year was different. And on September 23, 2014 I finished a story from beginning to ending with a novella. (I set smart goals ;) )
This novella ended up getting rejected by a publisher and in my newness to writing and desire to share my story, I embarked on an Indie path. I got the book edited, found a cover designer, and hit published.
I later became a hybrid author—being published traditionally and Independently—but A Life to Live is what first made me an author. Set in Nottinghamshire, England, the story takes you on a journey about a bucket list.
Mia took her deceased mother’s bucket list and promised to check each item off, traveling the world in honor of her mother’s dream. When she arrives in Nottingham, she unexpectedly runs into her old high school sweetheart. You’ll have to read the book to see how they fare. :)
I loved discovering the fun of writing and cheering the hero and heroine on toward a happily ever after. I kept on writing once I fulfilled that New Year’s resolution and haven’t looked back.
A Life to Live is currently on sale for 99¢ on ebook but I’d like to offer a $5 Amazon gift card to one lucky commentator. Simply let me know if you’ve ever visited England in the comments or tell me if you have a bucket list. Comment by 10/2/21 at 3pm EST and I’ll pick a random winner.
