**NOTE: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BOOK REVIEW REQUEST, PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK, Book Review Requests, AND READ IT CAREFULLY.  I HAVE SUSPENDED BOOK REVIEWS FOR THE MEANTIME – MY LIFE HAS TAKEN A SERIOUSLY CHAOTIC TURN AND I JUST DO NOT HAVE TIME**

Who am I? I am a person first and foremost – a person on a mission to try and discover what my life goal is.  I have an idea, I know what industry I want to venture into – the how and where are still yet to be seen.

I am simply a Reader.  I can’t spell it out any more simpler, I love to read, as my posts will show – I read everything and anything I can get my hands on – books, magazines, newspapers, internet articles, you name it.  Though instruction manuals tend to get glossed over 😉 That being said, I love to learn about all kinds of things, read about and keep up on current events and try to stay somewhat on top of what’s going on – Politics though is still something that seems to escape me – I just don’t get it –  don’t understand it, though I am trying.  Sports though are one arena I avoid – as they too confuse the you know what out of me…my poor hubby has a devil of a time explaining football to me.

Where am I going? Publishing…that’s the world I want to venture into.  Me, a Mom of two and a Wife who loves to read, and has worked as a professional administrator for the better part of the last 12 years is looking to put her MBA to good use! I have an MBA in Marketing, graduated in 2007, because of where I live I cannot put it on my resume (sad I know) as employers here are either intimidated by the fact I have more education than they do – or they think I am going to take their training and knowledge and go run somewhere else (this is not something I am prone to do, I tend to settle into a job and stay put for as long as I am permitted – as job changes annoy me to no end – so if I am going to make a leap, like this one, it tends to be well researched and well thought out first) which I don’t fully comprehend, why would an employee vest that much time and energy into a position only to up and leave at the first chance they get?

Anyhew, that’s me in a nutshell…keep reading as I’ll include not only my thoughts on books, industry trends and fanfiction there may be some insight into the publishing world as a whole included!

Also come see me on my Financial Lessons Learned Blog!  Where my world of Finance becomes 100% Transparent

  5. Very cool that you have an MBA in Marketing. I’m just going back to college again – and don’t think I can handle anything more than an AA degree. So I have much respect for ya. Hope God guides you in the paths to take in order for you to be able to someday soon reach your publishing goal!
