Did you know I’m still alive? Ha! I know, I know. I haven’t posted on this blog in ages. With Devotion‘s release and managing my other blog (www.KristieCook.com), I just haven’t had the time. But this is my blog about writing and sometimes I have something to say about writing or to writers specifically, so I don’t want to close it down. Today is one of those days.

Well, earth-shattering in my world anyway. I’ve made two decisions this past week that completely change my writing life. And I feel really good about both of them. I’ve been contemplating both for some time and I came to their realizations within a few hours of each other. Coincidence? I think not. I believe that they work together to finally launch my stories into the world. I’m excited and scared at the same time…excited because my stories will go beyond a tight circle of friends and into the world and scared because of the risks and the potential changes to … Continue reading
