Writing Hard and Clear About What Hurts (a heartfelt guest post)

Melissa Tagg Faith, Guest 14 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 …

    It’s my super happy pleasure to welcome Jill Lynn Buteyn to the blog today. In addition to being a wonderful author, Jill shares a very important obsession with me: Parenthood…the TV show.

      Yeah, this post was bound to happen sooner or later. ‘Cause, you know, why wouldn’t I write a post about how and why I fell in love with my own fictional character? And it’s release day for Like Never Before, so the timing is perfect!! Here’s the thing: If you’ve heard me talk about Logan Walker, the hero of Like …

        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… …

It’s also my first time releasing a project …

                Guyyyyyys, today my awesome friend Rachel McMillan is here! She’s no stranger to this blog.

                  All right, friends. I’m just going to be super honest today, okay? I mean, I like to think I’m always honest here, but I usually try to couch the transparency in funny stories and slightly off the wall confessions about crushes on characters and plans to stalk my favorite band and etc etc etc. But today…today I’m just going to lay …
