Authoring is Awesomesaucing
A lot of authors are trying to keep this on the down low, but I’m here to tell you that being an author is amazing. No—seriously—it is a wonder and a joy unrivaled by anything else. I’m not trying to make you jealous or anything, but you totally should be because authorin’ is rockerin’.
See what I just did there? I made up two words and you have to trust me that they are real because I’m an author and that makes me an expert in wordses. And grammars. And everything else. And if you try to challenge me on that I’ll just tell you that I’ve done copious amounts of research on the topic because of a book I’m writing, then I’ll put my hands on my hips and stick my tongue out at you because that’s what I do whenever I’ve won an argument. 


In addition to being an expert and always being right about everything, authors also have a free pass to being moody. When an author stops in the middle of drinking a cup of coffee that you’ve fetched for them and suddenly throws the cup at the nearest wall then rests her head in her hands and adopts a thinking face, you know that she is in the grips of an amazing fit of inspiration that will lead to a book of magnificent journeys, characters, romance, and subplots; a classic tale sure to rest its weary pages on a bookshelf in every home. And if putting up with a broken glass and coffee mess everywhere (that you, the non-author have to clean up) is all you have to do to get this masterpiece, well yeesh, shouldn’t you be grateful to be in the presence of such genius? And it’s not like we got any coffee on you…although if we did it would be perfectly justified.
Okay, satire aside, being an author actually IS awesome, but not for any of the totally true and appropriate reasons I gave you above. Being an author is awesome because of readers. Because when readers like your book, they sometimes tweet or email you to tell you. They talk about your characters like they are real people, and they feel things in their hearts, minds and souls when they’ve read your writing—and that is the best compliment and most moving experience an author could ever ask for.
Now go get me some coffee. Because I’m an author, and I said so.

About the Book (I am actually doing a giveaway right now. SEE GIVEAWAYS)
The Vampire Relationship Guide, Volume 1: Meeting and MatingJosie wants what she's never been able to have--sex with a vampire. When she receives an invitation to a party thrown by one of the world's richest vamps, she doesn't stop to question her luck; she just jumps into her favorite stilettos and heads out to the event of a lifetime, secretly hoping that she'll come home with a party favor in the shape of a sexy coffin dweller.


But the great undead, much to Josie's chagrin, aren't just pale sexbots with pointy teeth waiting to satisfy her carnal desires; they are dangerous--and sometimes cranky. With a single-minded focus on fulfilling her sole sexual longing, Josie unwittingly entrenches herself in the twisted and sometimes antagonistic world of vampire relationships with no one to guide her, but herself.

  1. Hahahaha Evelyn! I'm guilty of getting on Twitter and lusting back and forth about Walker *raises hand* and I'd give anything for the sexy vamp to be real! Great post and would you like sugar and cream in your coffee? You scared your last minion away and they didn't leave notes :p

  2. I love making up words!! I use some weird ones in my every day vocabulary. I have 3 kids and also a potty mouth so I have churched it up with saying things like Mother Trucker and What the Hello and randomness like that.

  3. The list of words I have added to my Word dictonary is long...very long! But that is the fun of being in charge of your own works.

  4. Me too--although, you should disclose these words to loved ones before using them and assuming they will understand what you're talking about. Hubby gives me the strangest looks sometimes...

    My favorite thing is to combine words. Like, in our house we don't stay STOP or DON'T, we say, "STON'T" :-)

    And Bels--I said I wanted a latte--A LATTE DAMN IT!

  5. hahaha, most people who are not around me enough think I have problems. And others that are go home saying crazy things. I keep joking I am going to make a dictionary.haha. Just a few weeks ago we were on a roller coaster and I was going to freak out and started yelling OH SNAPPLES! People next to me looked at me like I lost my mind.

    My kids pick up on my words a lot. Its so funny! they all say flip regularly and oh biscuit burner (have no clue how this came about but its suppose to be an insult)
