AskMissA: My new adventure!

Hey everyone! I decided to start living one of my dreams, not just talk about it. I have always wanted to write and have people read my writing. I recently stumbled upon an amazing online womans magazine called It allows todays modern woman, wheather you are a mom or a single gal, to stay in "The Know". Writers from all over the country contribute to their specific home city. I landed the Annapolis Author position last week. I am very excited to say the least. I've had my first article posted already. Make sure to check out the site as soon as possible. Click on Maryland and look for the woman wearing the blue flower in her hair. Thats my trademark. Also, I will be recouping my blog soon as well. Please let me know any ideas you may have. I am not the most computer savvy. Till next time!

My new book club adventure!

Recently some friends of mine thought it would be a good idea to get a book club together. I was a little weary at first, not because I don't love books. Anyone who knows me knows my extreme love for books. I was just unsure about whether we could all agree on one type of book. Everyone has different taste. I tend to lean more towards fiction novels including mysteries and stories with a strong female lead. I am happy to report that the book club is a big hit in my book. Our official name is "Perspectives". The name fits our group like a glove. We are 5 strong woman who all come from different backgrounds. We all have different takes on the books we read and bring that to the table every couple months. I believe that this book club will make me not only a better writer but a better person. I am am learning how to speak my mind and get my points across strategically. Our next meeting is October 2nd. I am finishing up our book "Committed" in anticipation of our next gathering. I will be updating with my ideas soon!

October Read-A-Thon!

It's almost that time again folks. October 22nd is the next Dewey's Read-A-Thon. I had such a good time last April participating. Thank you all for the support and cheerleading. For those of you that didn't get a chance to participate last April, grab your books and coffee. It's another 24hrs of straight reading coming up next month. Don't worry! There will be plenty of games and challenges to keep you motivated, and lets not forget the prizes. I am volunteering for the marketing committee this year to help get the word out. Any good book suggestions? I am starting to get my reading material together now! Last time I didn't make it the full 24hrs but this time around I am determined. Please let me know if you have any questions. I had a little trouble posting the link but if you google Dewey's 24 hour Read-A-Thon it will pop up.

New Read!

Hello all my book worms! I have been away for a while but my reading has not stopped. In the last few months I have had time to get quite a bit of traveling in and complete a few more books. My current read is called "Committed" by Elizabeth Gilbert. This is the sequel to "Eat Pray Love" which was a big hit worldwide. I have to admit it took me a while to get into the first book but I am very pleased to announce my excitement over Ms. Gilbert's sequel. it is an excellent read so far. Any woman who is in a relationship or previously engaged in one can relate to this book. Marriage is a big topic in this book and I have found myself asking questions and learning so much right along with the author. I have never been married, but as many woman it is definitely something i would love to succeed at. I will update you all on my progress as i read more of the book. Has anyone read or is reading "Committed"? Please feel free to share any thoughts or feelings you may have. Talk to you soon!

I Missed You all!

Hello everyone,

I wanted to apologize for not posting in a while. Life has been very busy lately including a new move into our new apartment as well as a promotion at work. Verizon finally came out and hooked up my cable/internet so I have re-joined the land of the living. What have I missed? Anyone start any new books? I am still reading Water for Elephant's. I will give you an update later on. I did have a chance to see "Something Borrowed" this past Friday. It was amazing! I definitely recommend reading the book first and then seeing the movie. The movie had me laughing and crying all at the same time. Has anyone else seen the movie yet. I am working on an author interview with Emily Giffin so hopefully she can stop by and chat with us soon. I will check back in later with you all today. Talk to you soon!

My Golden Day!

I had a golden day yesterday. It was so golden that I woke up this morning wanting to do a little spring cleaning. Anyone who knows me is aware the I never voluntarily do any type of cleaning unless I have too. You might be asking yourself, what is a golden day? It can have a different meaning for everyone. A golden day for me is when I get to do what I love and then share that with other people. In this case that would be reading. I participated in the "Dewey's 24 hour read-a-thon" yesterday. It was an amazing experience. People from all over the world come together to do the same precise thing for an extended period of time. On top of that you have mini-challenges, plenty of prizes and best of all it's completly free. In this fast paced, penny pincing day and age I consider that a miracle. This was my first time doing the event. I plan on signing up again for the next one in October. The leaves will be on the ground. The pumkin seeds will be roasting in the oven. It will be the perfect time to throw on a cozy knit sweater and lay by the fire place with your favorite bookin hand. Those golden day's don't come by too often, but when they do you have to reach out and grab them. "Savor the Moment" is what I like to call it. Have a golden day everyone. Talk to you soon!

Check in hour 2!

Hello Everyone,

Reading is going well. I have switched my reading material to "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen. So far so good! I am going to update via the Dewey Read-a-Thon facebook page/discussion board. That way I will not spoil the book for those who would like to read it. I also wanted to share that I have officially downloaded Nook for my PC. This was a big step for me as I was not sure I wanted to jump on that bandwagon yet. I have not decided if I am going to purchase a Nook yet, but we are taking baby steps here right? I am an avid book lover so I am still on the fence. Does anyone out there have a Nook or Kindle? Please share your experience! I am eager to get different point's of view!

Back to my reading I go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
