Guest Post: Author Lindsay Paige

I would like to welcome Author Lindsay Paige to my blog today. She is a wonderful author who is a voice for her generation.

Are you a teen? Do you love to write? Do you struggle with handling school, a social life, and writing?

Today, I'm going to share how I deal with the things I mentioned above. I probably shouldn't say this, but writing comes first for me. If I have to choose between going out with friends or turning in a project on time and writing because the light bulb just went off, I'm going to choose writing. Each and every time.

However, especially with my anxiety, I need to balance my life. I do make time for friends, me-time, school, and other hobbies. I have to. If I don't, then I end up being one stressed, on-the--edge-of-a-panic-attack person. My life is a balancing act.

I have to balance my emotions to ensure that I don't over think, over analyze, or get too emotional. I have to balance my work and school and writing. I have to balance my me-time and my social life.

That is the main technique for handling being a full-time writer, full-time student, and part-time sub shop attendant. It works for me. Mainly because if I want to do something bad enough (or know that something really needs to be done), I find the time to do it.

Sweetness (Bold as Love #1)
Emily wished she was invisible. But after moving to a new town with her dad, a charming boy makes it impossible for her to disappear. Despite her feelings of unworthiness, Emily soon finds herself drawn to the safety of Jake's world.

Good looking and the star of the hockey team, Jake has a lot going for him. What most people don't see is the difficult life he has at home. When quiet Emily steals his heart, Jake vows to help her discover she is worthy of love.

Just when the two of them realize the sweetness of their relationship, they are put to the test. Only together can they overcome their haunted pasts to fight for a future together.

I'm Yours (Bold as Love #2)
After the incident with Claire, Emily encounters more problems. Conrad is back with explanations and hope. Emily wants to give him a chance to explain himself. She can't help but wonder why he left. However, Jake isn't comfortable with Emily going out to eat with an old lover.

Will things be too much for Emily to handle? Will Emily do the one thing she knows best and withdraw? Will Emily and Jake's love for one another keep them from shattering?

Whatever it Takes (Bold as Love #3)
Their first year of college isn’t what they expected. Emily is still struggling with the loss of her baby, while Jake seems to have no trouble with it at all. Emily is so conflicted about how to deal with the miscarriage. On top of that, she’s having nightmares.

Can Jake help his Sweetness? Will she allow him? Their relationship is suffering and Jake is determined to do whatever Emily asks of him. But when Emily makes a suggestion that she feels will help with her grief, could it tear the couple apart forever?

From MM: I'd like to give a big thanks to Lindsay for stopping by my blog today and sharing her books. Whatever it Takes, is the newest edition to this wonderful series and will be released in June 2012.
