First, though, I’m thrilled to be hosting the host of the BBF and fellow author Kayla Curry!

I Never Guessed I’d be an Author by 25 (Plus a giveaway!)


Lauren is graciously hosting me for the Blogger Book Fair.
I’m Kayla Curry, creator and head organizer of the BBF, and I’m here to tell
you about my journey.

Four months before my 25th birthday, my debut novel, Obsidian was published by Martin Sisters
Publishing. If you rewind a few years, you’ll see me getting married at 21. The
couple of years before that was my party phase. So, how did I get here?

Well, I do have a background in writing. I wrote my way
through high school as a journalist for the school newspaper. I took every
writing class I could and after graduation, I continued to write short stories.
Eventually, the writing dwindled, but one dream brought it all back.

One dream, pushed me to write and write until I finally had
a full-length novel on my hands. I went the traditional route, and queried
publishers. I remember the exact moment I got the contract offer. It was one of
the most memorable moments in my life and that moment changed everything for
me. It’s the moment I officially became an author in my own eyes.

Now I’m getting ready to publish the second book in the
Mystic Stones Series, and I basically have my own business. I’ve started this
fun thing called the Blogger Book Fair, and I am proud of what I’ve done. I
keep pushing myself to build up a business that I am happy to call my own.
