Not sure if you've already seen a few of these posts floating around the blogosphere, but myself and a group of fellow bloggers have all teamed up today to pay tribute to an author who is every bit as incredible as her books. The hilarious and fabulous Myra McEntire.
Well, we all have our own reasons to celebrate her awesomeness. Maybe it's her hilarious tweets or her sweet and steamy books. For me, it's more personal than that--though that may be because I'm lucky enough to *know* Myra a little.
Myra is exactly the kind of author I want to be. Classy (well, when she's not tweeting about Moonshine and pimped-out big wheels--then she's just my favorite person ever), kind, generous, supportive, and most importantly, REAL. She's not afraid to be herself, whether it be admitting that she's running out for emergency chocolate in frumpy flannel, or being the one to jump in with a blog post that says everything I'd been thinking but couldn't figure out how to say.
I value her opinion so highly that she was the friend I turned to when I needed one. more. opinion. on the early chapters of LET THE SKY FALL to make sure I wasn't crazy for thinking I could write YA. And it was her sweet, encouraging response that gave me the courage to finally send pages to my agent.
So if you aren't following this amazing lady on Twitter or her blog you NEED to. And if you haven't read HOURGLASS--or pre-ordered TIMEPIECE--here are some handy ways to do just that:
