It’s me, the girl who hasn’t the first clue what she’s doing or what she wants to be when she grows up! Here I am!!
I wrote a book, I’m guessing you know this, but maybe you don’t…
Anyway, it’s publishing soon, so here I am trying to get my crap together and make a website. It’s janky, just like my book cover. (Also I loathe the word ‘just’, you’ll find out later why)
Some back story on why I decided I could write a book. First, I never thought I could write a thing, I was a slacker. In college I wrote English papers the night before they were due and prayed (to the lord baby Jesus, while crossing my fingers and standing on one foot) I filled in what things they asked for on the rubric.
So, twelve plus years ago I found myself in an apartment, you’ll become acquainted to in the first chapter of Ginger Devil. Said apartment was embedded into my brain and wouldn’t leave. I dreamed about the place. I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just (there’s that stupid word again) say for kicks and giggles that it was a crappy apartment. –also that’s were the story related to me ends, the rest is complete fiction
About four years ago I was talking to a nurse friend of mine, Betsy, and she told me I should write a book. Well lookie here Betsy, I wrote a book! But I didn’t write it then.
I still kept having nightmares about the mold on the ceiling and such. Then one night in late October 2019 I told my husband about an idea I had for an opening to a book. I was talking about for someone else to write, not me! Another person, my husband said to write it down, and I did! He actually read it and said it was good. This is a lot coming from my husband. He doesn’t give praise where it isn’t to be. For real y’all. He’ll tell me if I’m being irrational right to my face as I’m screaming about how the entire house needs to be clean in the next 2.5seconds before I explode. –I’m irrational sometimes and I need to be told. I don’t get butt hurt about it for too long
If you’ve read down to here, thanks! Thank you for reading this mess of a post or maybe you skipped right to the end, either way thanks! I wrote Ginger Devil from November 2019 to February 2020. You can purchase it for your own enjoyment on May 26th!
