Love My Library Week with @MeganSlayer #library #reading #writing

I love when I'm asked how I came to be a writer. I usually say something about reading a book and thinking, hey I can do that, too. But the truth is, I've wanted to write a book since I was a kid. I've loved to read since I was four. When I was a kid, my mother insisted we go to the library. For me, it was a treat. We went there because we'd been good or whatever, but I loved getting lost in the books.

The library in the town I grew up has changed since I was small, but when I was a kid, the building was kind of old already. It had this mildly scary winding staircase where you couldn't always see who was coming and couldn't always pass around each other, but that staircase opened up to the children's section and I loved it. The circulation desk was this fantastic round counter. Seemed like the whole middle of the room was this counter. And over the counter? There was this gigantic (Well, it looked huge when I was a kid) stained glass window. I can't tell you what the image was in the glass, but I remember spending hours staring at it.

I used to participate in every Summer Reading program the library had. As soon as I knew it was time, I signed right up. I loved to read and to get rewarded for it? Yes, please. I remember reading the Babysitters Club books and creating a diorama about one of the books. Totally self directed. I thought, okay, there's this contest, I'm doing it. I don't even think I told my mother. I just did it. The funniest part was, I'd done it because I wanted to 'earn rewards'. That's it. I loved the book wanted to get something out of it. I won. The project I did on the quiet got me on TV on the local channel. It wasn't the greatest little program and I think I got scared into not saying much, but still. I got to have that experience because of my library. How cool is that?

So I ask you...what's your fondest memory of the library? It's national library week. Join in and share your story!

Speaking of stories, here's my latest novella, Her Sir! <3

Her Sir by Megan Slayer 

Evernight Publishing
Contemporary Erotic Romance
M/F, BDSM, Exhibitionism, Anal Sex, Toys, Spanking

There’s only one man for Andi—her Sir.

Andi McCarron knew the moment she met Sir’s gaze, he’d change her life forever. Despite other Doms wanting her as their sub, she only submits to him because he knows how to make her skin tingle. The pain delivered from his crop makes her spirit sing. She needs Sir but she wants more—except he’s not interested in taking the relationship outside of the club. What’s a girl to do when the man of her dreams, the one wielding the crop, won’t leave the club?

Dean Meyer craves his sweet sub, Andi. She fills his dreams and fantasies, but she wants a relationship. He’s not sure she can handle both his demons and secrets. Still, he can’t deny the attraction to her. When fate throws them together, he has to make a choice—give his sub what she needs or let her go for good.

Available from these fine retailers:

I know what you mean about always wanting to write and loving to read from the start. Libraries were my favorite places when I was growing up. :)

Congrats on your latest novella. Sounds wonderful!

Can't remember not loving to read. I didn't go to the library though, as my mother taught school and I got out an hour before she did. I wasn't allowed to leave the house until she got home, but she kept me supplied with library books of every description.
