Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3, testing...

*tap, tap, tap*

Is this thing on???  Hello?  Anyone out there???

So...I started a blog.  Everyone else seems to be doing it, so why not me?  Yeah, I know, if everyone else jumped off a cliff, would I do it, too?  No, not so much.  I'm not really a fan of jumping off cliffs--it might mess up my purple hair.

As the title of this blog suggests I will mostly be talking about books in some way, shape or form.  I'm a bookseller (I own a new and used bookstore in O'Fallon, MO called Rose's Bookhouse), I'm a book lover/reader (time permitting) and a book writer (or "pre-contracted" as some of us like to call it).

Since life interrupted my writing flow a few years ago--all good stuff, I assure you--I've been struggling to get pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, as the case may be.  Perhaps the blog will help me to just write.  Small steps.  The characters still live in my head.  They talk and laugh and cry and love and scream and shout.  But I seem to have lost the focus to give them their voice.  So perhaps I need to find mine again before I can give them theirs.

Here's to hoping I have something worthwhile to say and that my voice can be heard.

Are we sure this thing is on???


  1. It's on! :)
    Welcome to the blogging world!!

  2. Thanks! Now I'm trying to figure out how to link up the blog with my facebook page...where for art thou, Kim?

  3. I saw this on FB first. Congrats on blogging--just don't forget to write that Great American Novel.

  4. Nag, nag, nag. *cough* I mean, write, write, write. *grin* The novel will be GREAT. I'm not sure about American though. Perhaps it'll be Russian or British or maybe Canadian?
