The Comfort Zone of a Newbie Author

I’m a very private person. I don’t like drawing too much attention to myself. I’m the sit in back of the class and observe type of person. I don’t follow the crowd and march to my own beat. So when I started writing with the hopes of making it a career I had to stick myself out there so readers will notice me and step out of my comfort zone. Below are a few things that are outside my comfort zone.

Social Media: Coming out of my bubble to meet people. This is something I use to do well, but spending years in a verbally abusive marriage at a young age made me shy away from others. Having your self esteem and respect stripped from you will do that. I only feel secure within my close and very small group of friends. It doesn’t help that my creative side makes some think I’m weird. I found that other writers ‘get me’ and I’m not as strange as some think. LOL.  And my second husband showers me with love and support. So I’m getting better at coming out of shell.

Blogging: Who wants inside my head? It’s not all that interesting, not all the time. And it can be a dark place at times. I write paranormal after all. *wink* I have a dry humor that most don’t find funny, unless you know me. I’m learning that not so true. My blog is still something I need to work on.

Sharing my writing: This is the scariest thing out there. Even after being published, I get knots in my stomach and fear no one will like my writing. I’ve heard from more seasoned authors that this doesn’t go away. We can only try our best and write because we love it. Then send that baby out there and run! LOL

What are some things you do that is out of your comfort zone? 

Ravished Before Sunrise
By Lia Davis

Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or understands her and she's forced to live a quiet, boring life in hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of her romantic fantasies. She's to hunt her very own vampire and have her wicked way him.
Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching agency. At first he's appalled by the idea, but as he reads the details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his own for his little vixen.
However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema's inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.

Emalee’s pulse raced as she drummed her fingers on her desk and searched the website. A giddiness she hadn’t known since senior prom ran through her. The site claimed unlimited possibilities, a chance for adventure. Could they mean it? Because she’d already seen things beyond what humans deemed possible. Hell, her whole existence was unimaginable. 
Her life had taken a lonesome turn when a friend she hadn’t seen since high school noted how much younger than the rest of her classmates she looked.  Her long-lasting youth had become a liability. Drawing too much attention to her unusual gift wouldn’t prove wise. In some cases, it could get her killed.  With no alternative, she’d closed the door on her life among humans and moved into the local witch coven, where everyone was different.
“What will you do?” Her best friend since preschool, a coven member in good standing, sat next to her for moral support and encouragement. Ema didn’t need much encouragement. The second Beth had mentioned a one-night stand, she’d been hooked. And Madame Eve’s dating service would save her from dying of boredom, at least for one night.
But could she go through with it? A wicked smile tugged at her lips and her inner voice said, “Hell, yeah.” Human strangers gave her a sense of safety. They knew nothing about her past or her unusual abilities.
“Just one night?”

Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and two very special, equally different kitty cats. She’s a wife to her soul mate, who drives her crazy during editing/revisions. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes and very humid summers. But it’s her home and she loves it!
An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very activity imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She only recently became serious about publishing her work and loves it more than she imagined. Writing is a stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world she created, leaving the day job where it belongs.
Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.

Lia will be giving away a $5 Starbucks GC, Starbucks Via sample pack, and a swag pack to one winner at the end of the tour! Enter below via the Rafflecopter for a chance to win. :)
