Sorry I’ve been neglecting my website. I’ve had a lot going on!
First, the 2019 Halloween Short Story Challenge has ended! I had 14 authors (and me) submit 25 incredible stories! The Kindle and paperback versions are on sale on Amazon! The anthology turned out great and I hope all of the authors are proud of themselves because they did an amazing job!
My second book in the Donahue Brothers of Texas, Texas Sized Mysteries series, Murder in the Maternity Ward is on pre-order for KU and the Kindle version, and the paperback is live now! So exciting! The Kindle version will be released on November 8th!
I’m scheduled to do a two-hour takeover on LitRing on November 9th to promote my book! Hopefully by then I’ll have completed Book Three in the series, Murder in the Houston High Rise and I’ll be able to tell you it’s release date!
My book was also featured in a giveaway as part of Kathi Daley’s Halloween Spooktacular! It was so exciting to be part of such a huge event!
The next writing Challenge gets underway on Sunday, October 27th! If you’re interested, or know someone who might be, you can sign up here! The next one will be the 2019 Christmas Spirit Short Story Challenge and will run from October 27 to November 10th. That way it’s before the holidays and I’ll have time to get the anthology ready to release for Cyber Monday! That’s the plan, anyway.
We’ve been passing around the “crud” this week. I have some health issues and this virus knocked me off my feet for a few days. I was supposed to spend time with my sons this weekend, but it looks like we’re all sick and need to rest! Boo!
I’m going to revamp my quote book for writers, Why Writers Need to Write, and I’m looking for people who’d be willing to read an advance copy of the book, give me feedback, help me choose a new cover, and post an honest review on Amazon. I’ve been told that people really like it, but I don’t have any reviews to back that up and I’m feeling a bit down about it. I think it’s worth working on, but I need some help! If you’d be interested in helping me out, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Advance Reader” in the subject line. You can also let me know if you’d be willing to receive free copies of any of my future books, in exchange for feedback and hopefully, a review! If you know someone else who’d be interested, send them my way!
If you click on any of the links to Amazon, I am an Amazon Associate, so I get a few cents for any purchases you make through my links. I appreciate it!
I’ll try to stay on top of things, but if you don’t hear from me for a while you can always check out my Facebook Author page! And if you sign up for the Challenge, you’ll have access to a special Facebook group! You can always email me at email@example.com, too.
Till next time, Michelle 🙂
