Anticipation ~ Outside the Margins with Adrian J Smith

Join Prism Book Alliance® as Adrian J Smith goes Outside the Margins today.


October is my favorite time of year. The settling in of autumn brings me amazing inspiration, not to mention the threat of NaNoWriMo! I’ve participated in NaNo for three years now. I’ve had to skip some Camp’s, but every November I’ve participated and won. I love the challenge, I love the build up, but most importantly, I love the community.

In the last year and a half, I moved to the middle of nowhere in Western Kansas from the lovely metroplex of Dallas/Fort Worth. It was for work, and while I love living out here, what I desperately miss is the writing community I had in Texas. Weekly writers groups, conferences I could attend as a reader or a writer, people who I could just sit and chat plot points and issues with over a beer at my favorite pub.

I’ve struggled to find that community here. Not only because there’s a severe lack of people but because I’m a minister and no one in my ministry life knows I write, and I want it that way. Keeping the two separate is hard work, and often I find I’m more myself in my pen name persona than in my real name persona, which might or might not be a sad testament to my life.

Well, it’s October, which marks the start of NaNoWriMo, the gearing up, the anticipating, the plotting out and planning of books. This year I’ll be working on the sequel to my newly released bisexual vampire book. I really can’t wait. I’m beyond excited for a few reasons.

One: it’s a new story to work on, new plot but characters I love. Two: it’s a chance for me to try and find and create that writing community I miss so desperately. It’s a time for me to begin being AJ again.

About Adrian J Smith

Adrian J. Smith, or AJ€ as she is often called, has a generous and soft heart. She loves to rescue stray cats and dogs, as well as those who just escape. Her hoard of animals currently includes two cats, a dog and a fish, but no children as of yet. She’s passionate about LGBT et al rights, women’s rights and children’€™s rights.

AJ loves to read and write lesbian fiction, simply for the fact that strong women make her swoon and when two are involved her knees turn to jelly and she falls head over heels in love. AJ travels around the United States, and sometimes the world, gathering up stories for her novels. Currently, she lives in the middle of nowhere of the middle of nowhere and is rather difficult to find except on the internet, where she spends a lot of her time..
