I didn’t forget about the #evernighties post for this week, but with the day I’ve been having, things got away from me.
So the topic is how much of myself is in my writing… a lot. I mean it. I’ve written about teachers. I was a teacher. An art teacher. I’ve written about second chance romance. I know about those because DH and I have had our ups and downs. I write about small towns. I live in one and have lived in them most of my life. Runners and cross country are parts of my life right now. Being a parent to a teen is something I know a bit about, too.
I don’t know a place called Cedarwood, but I would love to visit there. I don’t know any statues that have come to life, but there are a few I’d love to have do just that. Imagine the stories they could tell. I don’t know any vampires or shifters, but hey, I’m game to meet one.
So yes, my life has factored into my work a lot. What about you? If you’re an author, do you have your life in your work? Readers, what real life thing would you like to see more in books?
Now for my latest Evernight novella, Soft Clay!
Soft Clay by Megan Slayer
book 4 in the Celestial Mates series

Celestial Mates, 4
Two souls trapped—can they find freedom in each other’s arms?
Nike, the goddess of speed, can’t move. She’s the goddess of strength and she can’t shatter her curse. The goddess of victory has lost her weapons—her shield and spear. She put her faith in a human, only to be cursed. Can another human be the key to her salvation and freedom from the clay?
Charlie needs someone who can understand him. A person to cherish him. Male or female, he doesn’t care. He’s intrigued by Nike’s statue. Call him infatuated. But she’s a statue and they don’t come to life from true love’s kiss, do they?
