Beachwalk Press Turns 3!

Happy Birthday Beachwalk Press! I'm so lucky to have stumbled across this publisher when I was looking for a home for my first book Business and Pleasure just over two years ago! I can honestly say that I could not have found a better home, nor a more supportive group of authors. Here's to many more years together!

My three favourite things about being an author?

Just three? I could talk about this all day!
  1. It is never a chore. Writing has been my hobby and my passion all my life, and now I'm a published author it just feels great to share that with other people. It could never be seen as a job, because it's how I unwind.
  2. I've got to know some great people from all over the place, people I would never have had a chance to speak to otherwise. Every day is an experience, learning and growing and making some great friends.
  3. It allows me to develop creatively while staying at home to raise my children, and do a degree at the same time. I can't think of anything else that would have given me those kinds of opportunities from my own living room.
I truly feel blessed to be an author, and one with such a great publisher!
