Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween my little ghosts and goblins!

Halloween is my favorite 'holiday'. One night to be something or someone completely different, free candy and as you get older, free adult beverages LOL. But seriously, there is something about Halloween that I absolutely love.

Since I love this day, I decided to make it like my Christmas and put the books up for sale! Dark Secret, Wicked Spell and Careful What You Wish For are all on sale this weekend only. SOOOOO get your sweet fix with Careful What You Wish For. Your witch fix from Dark Secret and your warlock fix from Wicked Spell.

All three book are zero calories, but I can't be responsible for the calories you eat WHILE reading. ;)

Anyway, I have two kids that are going to get me candy... I mean... I'm taking trick-or-treating tomorrow and then staying home away from all the crazies that I've seen to run into this week. With that being said - please be safe everyone. Don't drink and drive. It's not worth it. Don't eat all the candy. It's not worth it. Read the books. Totally worth it.

Anyway stay safe and remember to join in the release party event and keep an eye out - CWYWF (Careful...) is on blog tour starting on Tuesday! xoxox

Happy Halloween!!

Save An Author - Read A Book

Hi guys!

Careful What You Wish For is officially out! I'm sure you have seen me posting a million places. I'm not sure if you are actually seeing any of them cause Facebook really sucks at putting feeds out there - but I think with my posting every hour or so, you're bound to see ONE of them, right?

I know that all I do is seem to rant on here, but I gotta take a moment to let a little steam -

I saw a post of another author talking about book sales are at their all time low. However, when a book goes on sale for .99, sales increase. Yeah, I'm all about getting things on sale and using coupons, but when it comes to this I can't seem to keep doing. Don't worry- I will have sales. I just can't afford to have my books stuck at .99. Here's the thing about what indie authors make:

At 0.99 on KDP Amazon we make 35% of those sales. So of that 0.99 I make 0.34. Yeah. I make sweat shop prices haha or at least that is what my husband once compared it to. I'm not trying to complain about sales, I LOVE to see I have new readers coming in. I just hope you like the book at that point. I'm by no means trying to sound like I live off this, but some authors - they do. Sure, we could go get real jobs and make this a part time job, but some people don't have that option.

I love you guys and I don't want you to think that I'm some sort of bitch. I try not to be. I just hope that you understand when we hear 'I wait until the book to be .99' OR WORSE 'I wait for free days' that is like saying you don't believe in fairies. One dies. One author loses hope and doesn't think they can make it in this world. It's true.

Okay, I'm don't standing on my soapbox. I just had to let that out.

Anyway, I hope you guys get a chance to check out this book. I really hope it is something you would enjoy! Blog tour starts in ONE WEEK! As does the release party! This week will be a crazy one, especially with Halloween coming up, so if I don't get a chance to - have a SAFE and happy Halloween :D

This is not a post that is meant to brag - it may sound like it in the next line, but will soon be explained.

I have 4 books out right now. I have published 4 freaking books and I'm about to publish my 5th. (now this is where I redeem myself) Waiting and anticipating the reviews and the moment the book goes live - is still a gut wrenching, anxiety building waiting game. I still am not used to it!

Each book that I've put out is not for everyone. My mom wont read my first book, only because I told her that it has lots of sex. She read my second book and was like, uhhh it was a little steamy still! She read my third and LIKED it. A lot. The 4th she still hasn't gotten around to, but she's read this new version and has LOVED it! She can't stop talking to me about it haha! She is insisting I submit it to some Hollywood studio and make it into a movie. LOL!

I'm about 3.5 days away from the release of Careful What You Wish For and I can't hardly wait! I have received a lot of really good reviews and yet I'm still in shock it's almost out. I think since I'm a type A personality, I'm giving myself a damn ulcer.

I really HOPE you guys like it. It's been an exciting story to write as well as getting my book wife who has fur babies, but not the stinky children who talk back, to get me out of my mom zone for some of the parts.

My editor giving me pointers and working on it on her days off. This is the moment that I actually live for, even though I lose sleep and worry about what else I could have done or needs to be done!

Anyway, I thought I'd get some anxiety out by jotting down my thoughts. There is nothing really new to report,  but I'm sure you'll hear back from me in 3.5 days LOL! <3

Will Work For Food... lol just kidding

Where has this year gone? I swear it was just January the other day and now we are 15 days away from Halloween! The year is coming to an end and FAST! I guess I lost track of the time while writing. I have gotten so lost into my stories - I lose track of time. Like, even just during the day, I realize Oh Shit! I haven't showered yet! It's just crazy to think in the last year, I have published (after this book) 3 books this year alone!

Me writing, was only to be a small hobby to get me not to call my husband every hour, asking how is day was going. Yes, I did that. Yes, I got bored being home. I needed something to fill my day and yeah.... it overwhelmed my day trying to fix my plot or where are my character's hands going to be placed or I need to research bars in the area. Then, I'd all the sudden get an idea for another story and start getting those ideas down and stop the other story altogether. My poor husband... LOL! "honey, lemme just write this last thing down...." hours later....

So in summary - I get wrapped up into my stories and give myself an ulcer haha! Not really on the ulcer thing, but I do try to get things done, even if that takes over everything. Including a shower. Yeah, its gross.
What does this all mean, Michelle? (that's you asking by the way, lol) It means, that I need a break. My poor fingers need a break. I LOVE to write, don't get me wrong - I have 3 more story ideas written down that I need to get done. It's just to the point where I need to get things done around the house. My daughter is getting ready for kindergarten next year and I realized I need to spend all the time I can with her. Mentioned above, time just flies too fast. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not going to fall off the grid or anything, I have a facebook addiction, so you will see me on there. I'm going to be posting a lot, doing giveaways and a lot of promotion for my books, especially this new book. I think it will knock your socks off!
What I'm also going to be doing is helping other authors take off. I'm really interested in marketing, hell my minor is marketing. I want to try and put my work and other authors work out there. I want to see where I can go with it. Sure, it will come with a small price, but in the end I think it will help in the long run. So, please don't vanish from me. PLEASE be sure to check out my new book (it comes out on November 3rd, but you can pre-order today!). I promise this story won't let you down and you will LOVE it. But know that writing is my passion. I'm not just going to quit it that easily. I just think my family needs me around, I need to not be glued to my MSWord doc.
I love you guys! Really. Oh and don't think its right now that I'm taking a break. I plan on this happening in January. I need to finish up something's for a small project and then it'll happen. <3
Here is the link and the cover for the new book, just in case you haven't seen my numerous posts, too. LOL!  Thanks for being there for me. It warms my heart to know that there are people out there that enjoy what I've written :D

Cover Reveal for: Careful What You Wish For


One simple wish would change everything…Unless you didn’t even wish for it

Harley Simpson had one wish – to find Prince Charming and settle down. However, she still had yet to find that one guy, so she buried herself in her work and decided to just have fun.

On her way out for a night with the girls, Harley meets a mysterious cab driver. The woman starts to question what she’d really like in life. Although Harley found it rather odd for a cab driver to ask such deep questions, Harley told her.

A wish gone bad…

Harley finds herself the next morning, married to her boss and two small girls running around the house. She’s at a loss for words, especially since she’d never even kissed the guy and now she has two kids. Is this the life that she truly wanted or has fate gone completely wrong? Can she get out of her suburban nightmare or will Harley learn how to become that mom she never thought she’d be - in this messed up fairy tale -

Exerpt from Careful What You Wish For!!

So with each book that I write, I'm always thinking its my baby. Of course, who wouldn't. It's your book! But with this new book, I'm BEYOND in love with it! So much so that I'm going to share an excerpt from it! If you are on my page - which if you are reading this more than likely clicked on the link FROM my page- you will be seeing a lot of teasers. AND in 5 days you'll be seeing the cover! I CANNOT wait for this book to release, which by the way is in November!! EEK!!

Without further delay - here is a part of the book!!

Speeding down the road, my head in a fog from everything, I guess I didn’t realize how fast I was really going. Lights began to flash in my rearview mirror and a siren blared at me. “Oh no! I forgot my wallet!” I whispered.

Leila began to cry, “I don’t want you to go to jail!”

I turned around in my seat, “Why would I go to jail? Am I wanted or something?” I panicked.

“Good morning, miss. Do you know why I’m pulling you over?” the police officer asked.

I began to breathe heavily, “I was speeding, but officer – I’m in a bind, I-I seem to have woken up in the wrong place, I-I have these girls to get to school and…” I began to tear up as I tried to calm my breathing.

“Miss, have you been drinking?” he asked.

“What? N-no, I went out last night and then I woke up in this house and they are saying I’m their mommy… Officer…”

“I’m going to need you to step out of the car,” he commanded. The girls were beginning to weep in the backseat.  I unbuckled my seatbelt and stepped out of the van. “I understand the stress of being a parent,” he began. “But, you really need to not have a breakdown in front of your kids. I see it all too much around here. Just take a deep breath, things will get better. Slow things down and drive carefully,” he said, opening the car door.

I gave him a puzzled look, I kind of wanted him to arrest me, so I could have a moment to figure out or even find out what the hell was going on. Maybe even speak to a detective to solve this shit. I slid back into the van and buckled my seatbelt.

“Officer?” I called, as he walked back to his car.

“Yes, ma’am?”

“I… I must’ve gotten turned around. Can you possibly point me in the direction of the elementary school?”

“Miss, are you sure you haven’t been drinking?”

I sighed, “I’m sure. I just…” I paused a moment to think of some sort of lie, “I have a migraine.” The officer nodded and pointed down just down the road to the school just a few blocks away. He returned to his car and I slid embarrassedly into the driver seat.

I hope you like! Careful What You Wish For will be released in November :D
