The past couple days have been a crazy emotional roller coaster. After seven years, I’m leaving my job at the University Press of North Georgia and starting a completely new adventure with a new company. My years as an editor have been wonderful. The press gave me so much experience and many opportunities, but it’s time to move on.
Last night, I was asked if I was interested in applying for this new position. I submitted my resume at 7am this morning and got called into an interview at 11am. I was offered the job and promptly accepted it. I am not a rash person. This decision has been both frightening and exhilarating, but ultimately, I know I’ve made the right choice.
Though I’m leaving the publishing world in this new career path, my love of books and writing has not waned in the least bit. I’ll still be posting my book reviews here, I’ll still be writing, and I will still be an active committee member of the Dahlonega Literary Festival.
I also dyed my hair recently. SO MANY CHANGES! UGH!Maybe I’m going through a third-life crisis or something…
