Monday Featured Blog – Regan Leigh


Hello Folks!
I hope your weekend was great. Mine was subdued, but good. Nothing new to report ;o)

Well, we have another great blog – they all are aren’t they? LOL. Regan is a great friend and fabulous Beta! Don’t get any ideas – she’s all mine ;o) Just kidding…

She has a fantastic blog over at Regan Leigh Her posts are random and quirky…hey sound familiar… We have a lot in common which is why I was so lucky to find her on twitter one day ;o)

She loves to blog about music, writing or whatever fancies her at the time. If you haven’t seen her haunting, beautiful book trailer for Mallory’s Story you can find it Here She also has a great post on Lay vs. Lie (I know it helped me) You can find all the grammar goodness Here.

She’s also having an awesome contest where you can win a copy of The 3 A.M. Epiphany by Brian Kiteley! You can find it Here

Regan is a wonderful person who’s willing to help anyone who needs it. I’ve read her writing and I can tell you, it will be in the stores someday. She knows emotion, and she knows it well. Her story Hayes, actually brought me to tears. Yeah. That. Good.

Her profile Info:

I’m an aspiring author. That’s who I am in a nutshell. 🙂

I used to write as a kid. Even into high school, I wrote short stories. Something happened when I went to college and grad school. I started to hate reading. Not only did I hate to read because of all the required texts, but I had lost my desire to write.

I didn’t regain my desire until October of 2008. That’s when it hit me. How could I have forgotten? I’m a writer.

I started writing every hour I could spare, and after three weeks of non-stop writing in January of 2009, I had three hundred pages. It was like my muse was pushing me aside and typing it for me. I had no idea how I was writing so much and so quickly, without feeling tired. I lost sleep, but I didn’t even miss it. I wanted to be writing all the time. I still feel that way.

I know that I may be writing for years before anyone actually enjoys my finished product, but that doesn’t really discourage me much. My only real fear is that I’ll stop writing. That can’t happen. I won’t let it. I’m a writer and I don’t want to forget that again. So, no matter how stressful it is to think I may be writing complete crap each day, I’ll keep doing it.

You can find her on Twitter as ReganWrites

I also want to thank some of my peeps for awards I got recently! Anyone who wants them can have them ;o) If I had time I’d pick some people, but instead – take em if you want them – you are all wonderful and deserving ;o)
