Ten tips to chase your dream {part 1}

Melissa Tagg Dreams 22 Comments

Do you know what I just love? I love talking to dreamers. And I randomly got to do so much of that last week! It’s like something was in the air. Questions from aspiring writers on Goodreads . . . a conversation with a stranger in Staples about his music aspirations . . . coffee with a friend who is working …

        Melissa Tagg Faith, Guest 16 Comments

        First of all, minor housekeeping note: I’ve been super absentee around these parts lately. I’m sorry…and yet not. Because April was thrillingly full with book stuff and speaking engagements and May is thrillingly carefree with lots of family and friend fun. I do hope to churn out a post in the next week or so, but thankfully I’ve got some …

              What better way to celebrate spring? (aka giveaway time!!)

              Melissa Tagg Giveaway 28 Comments

              Okay, here’s the thing: I started writing a post for this week about why I love Logan. Fake Logan Walker, I mean. My Logan…from my soon-to-release new book, Like Never Before. It started out funny and turned serious and got ultra share-my-heart-y. But then time got away from me and the post didn’t get finished and it’s totally okay. Because why not wait and …

                February 22, 2012 It was just a normal day and I was just doing a normal thing–procrastinating by way of checking my email. Only there was something unexpected waiting for me in my inbox. An email from an acquisitions editor at Bethany House Publishers telling me she’d followed my blog for some time and kept up with me on Twitter …

                  That New Year’s Post.

                  Melissa Tagg Faith, On Writing 10 Comments

                  Soooo…I keep saying I’m going to write a New Year’s post. Because that’s what you do when you’re a blogger. Even an infrequent (as of last summer-ish, I was all scheduled and committed before) blogger like me. It’s just what you do. You tell the Internet about your resolutions or your “one word” or your writing goals for the coming year… …

                    YAY!! It’s release day for One Enchanted Christmas.  I’m so excited. And nervous. And excited. And nervous. And… You get the point, yes? But I’m truly grateful to have had the time and opportunity to write this novella. It was such a blast…by far some of the most fun I’ve had writing lately. It’s also my first time releasing a project …
