Wednesday Writing with Eisley Jacobs.

Today I am joined by the fabulous Eisley Jacobs as she celebrates the release of her latest book, RUNAWAY CHOICES. Eisley lives in Denver, Colorado with her three children and husband. Eisley actively writes the characters that stroll through her head. The first YA Novel she completed was in high school, but somehow got lost in the shuffle into real life. While studying at college, stories began to plague her mind and she tried her best to keep them at bay while she did more important things like... like... who are we kidding. Her grades suffered because the voices wouldn't stop. So instead of going insane, she wrote.

So today, I’m here to talk about the process of writing. I hope you’ll grab …
