If you’ve ever wondered what goes on in the head of an author (it’s frightening), whether two women can stick to a single topic for fifteen minutes (that’s what editing is for), or if you are the only person who messes up every day and doesn’t have everything together (spoiler alert – you aren’t) this is where you want to be.

Once a week, join Kristi and Lindsey (and sometimes our friends) as we explore what we can do to edit our lives and make tomorrow better than today.

Life is a rough draft. You can edit it all you want, but there will always be a chapter you never saw coming.

Meet Lindsey and Kristi

Lindsey P. Brackett has read obituaries on the radio, conned middle schoolers into reading Shakespeare, and directed musicals despite not having the ability to sing or dance. These days, she writes southern fiction infused with her rural Georgia upbringing and Lowcountry South Carolina roots. Her latest novel, The Bridge Between, is a follow up to her award-winning debut, Still Waters, the 2018 Selah Book of the Year. Someday Lindsey hopes to balance motherhood and writing full-time. Until then, she’s just very grateful for her public school system.

Connect with Lindsey and get her free novella, Magnolia Mistletoe with newsletter signup at lindseypbrackett.com or on Instagram @lindseypbrackett.

A lover of stories from before she could read, Kristi Ann Hunter is the award winning author of more than ten sweet regencies written from a Christian worldview including the Haven Manor series and the Hawthorne House series. She functions on a steady diet of chocolate, Chick-fil-a diet lemonade, and swoony visits with her book boyfriends (and her hubby). When she isn’t writing, she spends time with her family in Georgia playing board games, being a dance mom, and living her own happily ever after.
