I was supposed to do this yesterday but I got really sick. However, I want to dedicate the month of October to NJ Walters! NJ Walters was my very first Goddess of the Written Word back in January, but she deserves way more than just one month.
Not only is NJ an amazing author who tells the most wonderful stories, she is also an amazing person. It is because of NJ's encouragement that I am about to be a published author myself. She had encouraged me to try submitting my own stories and it royally paid off. If she hadn't, I never would have attempted it. Up until then, my stories were really just for my own enjoyment. I never thought I was good enough to get published.
NJ Walters is a fantastic author of so many awesome series. Her Tapestry and her Dalakis Passion are numbered among my favorites along with her Amethyst books. But NJ has also become my hero and I count her among the top people I know. Thank you so much for all your encouragement, NJ. October is dedicated totally to you!
