That one came out of left...

Okay, so in today's episode of Michelle's tiny little world, I'm going to step into the shallow end of the crazy world called Indie Writers. Now, in no WAY, SHAPE, or FORM am I going into it - I'm sure you'll find it on FB or Twitter. I just thought I would add my two cents (not that they will get me anywhere - Gas is freaking over $3 LOL!)

My two cents -

The author world... it's mean. I'm done.

See. I didn't really give much. I just know of constant gossip. Constant bickering. And loads of Mean Girls posts. I honestly graduated high school 14 years ago and I feel like I keep waking up....

Yep. I went there.

Anyway, I don't know the whole story of all the drama (well of each story cause there is more than one drama story), so I keep my nose out of it. I don't want to be a part of it. I don't like confrontation.

I'm done. I don't want to say the wrong thing and be the next one in some hot water. Why can't we all just get along? hahahahhaa!!

Anyway, enough about that... I'm really hoping to get this new book out to you by the beginning of December. If you are on my author fan page - you'll probably start seeing a lot of teasers for it in the coming weeks. My kids think I'm crazy when I am writing it - I will write a funny scene and start laughing. Naturally they'll come running over to my laptop thinking I'm watching something funny only to see that mommy is writing and suddenly I become the crazy one. *Shrugs* I just hope you guys enjoy it as much as I am!  :D

Well, apparently I have to make food? These people had lunch... and I have to make dinner? UGH ;) A mom's job is never done. I hope you guys have a wonderful week!

One BIG story!

Well it was bound to happen.... I created a 'box' set of Dark Secret and Wicked Spell! You don't have to oneclick...well twice, you can actually ONE click both stories once! Does that make any did in my head and I wrote it down and now I'm starting to second guess myself LOL!

So now that's out of the way - I've gotta say I'm feeling quite professional haha! I just got my first set of business cards, totes, pens and notebooks today! I have my first set of swag :) yes, I'm totally poppin my collar (as the kids say... or do they still say it? LOL).

Hmmm...What else... OH! I'm about a third of the way done with my fairy tale book! You guys, I'm serious when I say - this book is going to make all you mommies know exactly what I'm talking about and you non-mommies know exactly what I'm talking about hahaha! This fairy tale is not your average fairy tale - this is one that has gone COMPLETELY wrong. It's hilarious. Or at least I hope you think so.

So, bear with me - I'm going to be doing a big cover reveal, blog tour, and everything else I can possibly think of. If you are interested in beta reading for me - PLEASE contact me on my author page. I'd love your help in finding out what you think and what else I can do!

Okay, guys, this was just a quick update - so I'll have more for you in the coming week :D


OH! here is the link for the 'box set'!

A bit of a rant...

Well if you haven't seen it already - Wicked Spell is FINALLY out! However - I find myself a little down.... no not because it's out, but because I just found it on a pirated website. Yep. It was released on Friday and already out.

Now, I can't tell you how hard I worked on it. How hard I worked on both Dark Secret and Wicked Spell. They are my other kids. They are my late nights. They are my losing sleep. And for someone to have put them up on site that lets you download them for free? Really?

I consider myself a very generous person. If you need help - I'm there. If you need an ear to listen - I'm always there. If you scratch my back - I'm totally going to scratch yours. I like to help people out. It's just who I am. But when I'm finding my book that was just released 2 days ago on a pirating site... yeah. It makes me lose my faith in society. I'm not going to say that I'm going to stop doing giveaways, well cause that means I'm punishing everyone and that's one thing I don't want to do.

Today, though it just makes me what to take my ball and go home. I'm a little peeved. Now, I can say I looked again and I don't have any # of downloads from the site - a fellow author had 10+ THOUSAND! The fact that all of my books are on there just pisses me the eff off.

Anyway, I do wanna thank all that have been true to all authors (not just indie) and buy your books from a legit site. Writing could be just our hobby, but it takes money away from us when you don't use a legal site (iTunes, and Amazon).

Alright I'm done bitching for the day. Thanks for listening. Well, now that Wicked Spell is out - I can finally finish up my Romantic Comedy! You guys, I think you're going to love this book. It's called Careful What You Wish For: A Fucked Up Fairy Tale. LMAO!! I am cracking myself writing this (which sometimes after a few martini's doesn't take long), but its going to be epic. I think you'll love it. I'll definitely keep you posted on release dates and so forth.

Until next time...

Less than 24 hours away!!

OMG OMG OMG! I'm over here really freaking out. I don't know if it's the fact that I'm realizing I'm getting older or the fact that Wicked Spell will be releasing in less than 24 hours. A mixture of both, perhaps?

Either way, I don't know if I'm going to be able to sleep. It's like Christmas for me. I've got my birthday that I always get excited about and a book release that I am trying to stay on top of. I guess the beer that I said I wasn't going to have tonight, it's going to happen.

Right now, though, all that is going to through my head is how much I want to hug and kiss each and every one of you. Okay, maybe not kiss, but definitely squeeze you hard. Bloggers, readers, friends, family.... you all helped me do this.

Yes, I'm playing the Tom card. He's amazing and sums it up right there. Also if you stare at it long enough it goes faster and you're like OMG... I need a moment to myself. Inappropriate. Sorry.

So since it is already nearing midnight in the UK... yeah I'm already ready to start this party... Let's rock!!

Be sure to pick your copy of Dark Secret and Wicked Spell. Make my birthday wish of coming true....

Okay, I'm totally done with the gif's. I love you guys! Links to the books are below. :D Party on Wayne. Party on Garth :D

If you know me, you will know that I love my birthday. I guess it never bothered me that I'm getting older. Okay, that's a lie, but I do still love my birthday. I mean it's on a day called Talk Like A Pirate day! LOL! And 32 isn't that bad, right? Don't answer.

My birthday is also awesome because.... .WICKED SPELL is FINALLY releasing!!!!! FINALLY! If you haven't seen it (which I think that's impossible because I blew up news feeds on Facebook all over the world showing it off. Either way, I'll post it again below. You probably have an idea how excited I am, but I can tell you - I'm getting a little stir crazy over here and if it wasn't a birthday present to myself to push publish, I might have pushed it a couple days ago.

Wicked Spell is my fourth book to be published and getting ready for a release still has yet to get any easier. I do have an amazing support team though and you guys are awesome! I truly love you guys!

Now, to a sad subject....

Earlier this week, my dearest friend messaged me and told me that her father had passed away. It broke my heart. We had talked about the way his health had been going down and then it happened all of the sudden. Now, I never met the man, but the stories she had shared with me and how close I feel she and I have gotten over the last couple of years - I felt like I did know him. I'm trying to set something up to donate a portion of my proceeds of Wicked Spell to ALS(which he battled)... I'll keep you posted on that :)

Well, that's about it from me. I'm sure you'll be seeing more as Wicked Spell gets closer :D Have a wonderful weekend! Stay safe xoxo
