What was I thinking?

by Amy Gregory

writerspace blog picHave you ever gotten ten steps into something and stopped cold, only to find out you can’t go back? It’s in that moment you think—What In The Hell Was I Thinking!?!

I am living in that moment, have been for a while and I am not seeing that light at the end of the tunnel yet. By the picture, I think you get where I’m going with this!

See, I’ve found, even as an author, I like reading about my favorite authors, what they’re up to, what they like to do in their spare time. Yes, I do read the blogs and articles about marketing, about trends, etc. But I really like to connect with people, whether it’s at a conference, an email, or messages to Facebook, Twitter or my website. I like to know what people like in books and what drives them crazy about what they’re reading.

Love their online store, love Chip and Joanna, and I love it’s one of those shows I can watch with the whole family and laugh. But why did I think we should live out that show? Lord only knows.

We’d been looking for a new house for about a decade. When this one came on the market I was at a conference. My husband texted me pictures. I distinctly remember telling him, “buy it, we can make the house what we want, we’ll never find that piece of land anywhere else.”

Oh boy. Um? Insert—“what was I thinking?” There’s even a country song with the title. But, it’s going to be what we want when we’re done. It’s our new saying around here. Soon. Someday. One of these days, it’s going to be perfect. Uh? Laughing—kind of.

Amy GregoryWe love rustic and log cabins so we’re going to go with that and I’ll post pictures as we go on my website just for giggles. However, this is a picture from this morning as I type this. So welcome to my world. At least I can say, it’s never boring! Stay in touch, but hang on it might be a bumpy ride.

Oh! And I almost forgot. Why wouldn’t I just throw a new release in the pot of crazy and stir it up? Right? Easton’s Everything is releasing November 17th. My deadline to my editor—forty-eight hours. Yep. Two days. I told you it was never dull around here.

For those of you that don’t know me, I’ll first warn you, my life is crazy and I have a very broken filter! — Oh wait! Maybe I never had a filter? Not sure, now that I think about it!

I am a Kansas girl, still happily married to my high school sweetheart from a tiny little town, and we have three busy kids. Our youngest raced motocross and I fell in love with the sport. We live in a bigger city now, but still have those roots and a farm down south, so the Finding Perfect series is close to my heart as well.

I didn’t set out to become a writer. It all started with a dream I had. After a few nights of the dream becoming more vivid each night, I began writing long-hand. A month later—I had Carter and Jesse both typed. I fell in love with it and now I get antsy if I can’t write.

Ideas now come to me usually through lyrics in songs, so my poor iPhone is loaded beyond capacity! (And iTunes loves me! $$) As you can tell, I’m pretty snarky, a self-proclaimed smartass and very proud of it.

A few of my favorite things (besides the husb & kids) my puppies! (Mia, yep, based on one of them!) Love to shoot my pistol, do archery league when can and write as much as humanly possible! I’m almost always in Wranglers or Levis, a true Ariat boot wearing, Jeep driving, coffee addict. (Yes, Jeep—Alex had one too!) There’s bits and pieces of me in some form or another in all the books. Not on purpose, just works out that way LMAO!

With the kids going in different directions and helping husb run our company, I don’t get to many conferences a year, but I love to chat with readers, many of who have become close friends just from a single message on FB or email. If you have questions, I’m pretty candid, ask away! I love to talk.
