A Look Behind The Pages

Everyone has problems. I know that. I understand that concept. But what irritates me isn't the fact that people bemoan their issues, but rather that they never think about how good they actually have it.

In today's society, everybody wants more. Bigger is better. You want more money. A better job where you get more for less. A better car. A bigger house. You want to go on vacation, get the latest iPhone or a new big screen T.V. And everywhere I look, people are saying FML because they don't get exactly what they want, regardless of the fact that they have everything they NEED. And when you overlook that fact, always trying to get to the next level of material wealth, you miss out on the simple joys of life. So, I'm going to break down for you the exact situation my family and I are in. Maybe you can learn from it and look at your own life and see how good you actually have it.

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

I was born on June 24th, 1987.
Today (it's midnight my time) is my 26th birthday.

I have very mixed feelings about this birthday. One, is because it will be four years until I'm 30


And another reason is because of how much things have changed.
Don't get me wrong, I haven't changed much over the years.
I've always been a nerd, rarely, if ever, got into trouble
and still am the crazy person that I was 10 years ago.

BUT
there are some aspects that have definitely changed.
My oldest daughter is turning five on Wednesday
*sobs* she's getting so big!
Although I am/have been a mother for the past 5 years, that's not what I'm focusing on today.
Today is about personal growth.


When I look back on my life, I see all the missed opportunities,
failures, achievements, happy moments,
and moments of complete despair.
Everything that I went through has led me to THIS moment, THIS point in time.
Are things perfect?
Far from it. But I am loving every minute of it
(even when I do get depressed and need a giant kick in the a**)



Luckily, I have a group of awesome friends that have yanked me off my unicorn and beat me whenever I need it. (They love doing it too, don't let them fool you)

But before my sleep deprived brain gets anymore rambly,
I just wanted to take this time and say:
THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone that has ever put me down, made me sad, or made my life hell.
I have grown stronger because of you.
Thank you to everyone who ever said that I would never do anything with my life.
That I would be nothing but useless.
Because of my anger towards you, and the feeling that no matter how stupid
or useless you thought/think I am that I KNEW that I wasn't and 
had something to prove,
I am now a published author.
WHICH I WILL HAPPILY RUB IN YOUR FACE!
(yeah, that's me bitches!)

And also, a very heart felt THANK YOU
to those few who have always stuck by my side,
who believed in me when I had nothing left to believe in.
You guys are as much a part of my success as I am, if not more so.
I wouldn't be alive (literally) if it wasn't for you.
I love you guys.

So, to end this rather disjointed blog I have to say only one thing:
I'm living proof that you can take any situation, any childhood (if you know me, then you know that mine was far from happy) and overcome it.

Whether you believe in yourself or not, 
you have the ability to become everything that you want, 
because you are capable.
You are priceless.
And the only way you will become what others tell you that you are is if you give up,
and give into their negativity.
Never do that, because you are so much more than what they want you to be!

Hope you guys have a great day,
and a very merry un-birthday to you!

I'm Insane Like That

Okay, so as many of you have already guessed, I am highly impulsive.
I'm one of those
"I have to wait? Why? It's right here in front of me! Pfft, don't give me that promo crap,
we're doing it NOW!!'
Type of person.

(is it just me, or does she look highly insane? I LOVE IT)

So, this is what happened on the 15th!

I poured myself a cup of coffee, and went to check my email:

and BAM! All formats were just sitting there in my inbox, taunting me!


And I was like:


I can freaking
HIT PUBLISH!!!

Some of my friends were all like:


'You have a blog tour going to start, remember? You should wait for more promo!'

And some of them were like:


so I sat there, with my fingers itching.
I looked at both aspects, and decided to tell my friends


SO I PUBLISHED EARLY!!!!
*throws confetti*





So here I am, feeling all of the above, then finally draining out and being all like:


Then I quickly turn to


But the bottom line is that
IT'S HERE!!!


So what are you waiting for?

And The 5 STARS Start Rolling In

I'm bored, so I figured I'd blog.
Some of you may be asking yourselves
"How in the hell can she be bored? Isn't she supposed to be writing?"
In which case I will reply
"Yes, yes I am. But I am FREAKING OUT!"
 


Now, why am I freaking out?
Simple.
So far EVERYONE freaking loves The Prophecy.
Now, I know. That's absolutely awesome and a hell of a lot better than what I was expecting.
Lets be honest, I'm still waiting for that horrible review that will make me want to cry.
BUT the fact that there is 100% worth of 5 STAR reviews so far leaves me with this:
They love the first book SO freaking much,
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SECOND ISN'T UP TO PAR?
 
Lets face it. I could slip.
My writing genius could take a steady decline into the sub-par or,
Goddess help me,
truly awful dribble.
 
So I'm faced with 'what-if's'.
WHAT IF
the second book sucks some massive a**?
WHAT IF
everyone is disappointed?
WHAT IF
I go from all 5 STARS down to all 1 STAR reviews?
WHAT IF
the sky turns to ash and my nose falls off?
 
I know, a lot of paranoia without even a HINT that any of that could happen,
but the fact still remains that it is ALL a possibility.
 
So I guess I better just buck up and get to writing, eh?
If I let all the thoughts consume me, I'll actually have disappointed people because
I wont have ANYTHING written.
O.O
That would not be good. Cue the angry mob.
 

 
So I guess I'll just shove all that paranoia to the side
and get back to work.
We'll see how it all falls together in the end ;)
 
Until next time, Happy Reading ^.^

I love love love this song. Featuring duel, fighting vocals, it mimics Light of the Moon so well it’s almost scary. I love the way the voices compliment each other, the way the song builds, the way it’s almost poetic in nature and yet very relatable. I wanted to create that feeling when I wrote Light of the Moon.

Her Master's Voice Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway

Author’s Bio & Picture:

As a writer of erotic romance, the beauty of the genre is not in creating lavish settings for my stories.
Nor is my fascination for erotic romance drawn from the opportunity to create handsome heroes and beautiful heroines.
My real love for the genre stems from the opportunity to take my readers on a journey and engage as many of their emotions as possible.
I believe writing erotic romance gives authors the most influence over how a reader feels as we engage them in our stories.
Writers of action books, or horror books certainly can create compelling situations, but with erotic romance we writers can immerse our readers in a multitude of emotions unprecedented in any other form of creative fiction.
I can frustrate readers, make them laugh, make them cry, delight them, intrigue them, inform them – erotic fiction is a total emotional experience, and it is gratifying to hear readers respond to stories with passion.

I believe readers want to be engaged and drawn into the pages of a story, and as a writer of erotic romance, we have the greatest opportunity because our stories are always relatable. They may be fictional worlds and fictional characters, but the themes of love and romance and erotica are so universal, and so personal to each of us that we all respond to stories in different ways.
But we all respond.
And that’s the true joy of writing erotic romance. It matters not so much how you respond as you read… it matters only that you do respond. If a writer can engage you and make you feel, then the story’s journey is one well worth taking.

NEVER LET YOU FALL RELEASE DAY!!!!



               








A special Excerpt just for you...

“What do you feel?  Anything strange?” 

She flung her hands up in the air as she answered me. “Yes, I feel something strange!  This whole thing is strange!” 

Placing my finger on her lips, I shook my head in frustration.  “Skye, what do you feel here?” I asked again, pointing to her chest.  “How do you feel?” 

She stood for a moment with her lips lightly pressed to my finger, slowly closing and reopening her eyes.  There was a sheen to them that spoke of unshed tears, and as she raised her hand to pull mine away from her mouth, I saw her fingers tremble when  she whispered, “I can’t deal with this, Xander.” 

“Yes, Skye - you can and you will,” I warned her.  “This is going to happen whether you want it to or not.  I told you that I’m safe, and I…” 

Skye broke into hysterical laughter at that.  “Safe?  You’re telling me that a legion of demons is after me and there’s nothing I can do to stop it.   How in your book does that equal safe?”

“You don’t know me, Skye, and you don’t know Rioden and… what we can do.  I told you that I would protect you, and I will.” 

Shaking her head, she took a small step back and admitted, “You’re right about one thing, Xander,” as she wiped a tear from her face.  “I don’t know you, so how can I trust you?  No matter how you make me feel.  Please just leave me alone.”  She spun on her heel and sprinted away, leaving me to stare after her.



About the Author



 Having grown up in both the cold, quiet town of Topsham, Maine and the steamy, southern hospitality of Mobile, Alabama, Michele is something of a enigma.  She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow.  However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children’s laughter! 


Her family, a doting husband and three awesome  minions  have planted their roots in the middle of Michele’s two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Never Let You Fall is Michele’s first novel and she is beyond thrilled to have finally followed up on a dream she has held for over 20 years!  God willing there will be many many more books to follow.

An Update

Hey everyone!
I know you guys are probably wondering where in the world I went too. Well, I didn't mean to leave you. I came into some really bad health issues, which lead to financial issues. So, I was regrettably forced away for an unforeseeable amount of time, and I apologize for that.

It has come to a point where I have to make a decision. It was rather frightening to discover that I can't do everything that I want to do, no human can, and to continue on as I am will lead to devastating consequences. I'm a mother, that always comes first and I'll never give that up. I'm an author, and I'll never give that up either. So that leaves only one thing for me to take out of my life. And that is the massive blogging that I have been doing.

FIVE DAYS OF NATUSCH DAY ONE!

Welcome, my Wicked peeps, to Day One of Natusch!
During the next FIVE days, Amber Natusch will be in the spotlight with her  Caged Series!
Today is the review for book one,
Caged
(oh, and don't forget to enter the giveaway ;) )
 

"I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality.
I was too."

After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural.
As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered.
When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.
She chooses poorly.
Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it

******IMITATION BLOG TOUR******

Today is my part in Heather Hildenbrands Blog Tour for
Imitation!!!
A wee review ;)
Author Interview
And a GIVEAWAY for a necklace designed for Imitation!
 
Everyone is exactly like me.
There is no one like me.

The rough fabric of my cotton nightgown chafes so I lie very still. They say my discomfort comes from being built like one accustomed to niceties. How is that fair when I myself have never experienced anything but copies of the real thing?

My entire life is an imitation.
I am an Imitation.

I’ve been here five years. Training. Preparing. Waiting.
And now I have a letter.
My assignment has begun.
I am a prisoner.
I am not Raven Rogen.
I am here to die.

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY SEVEN!!

Its the LAST day!!!
Are you still alive after all that awesomeness??? ;)
 
Today is a review for Quinn's first book in her new series, Elfin!
 

Before tonight Cassie Tate’s biggest concerns were whether she could pass Algebra and how she was going to keep Elora, her best friend, from dressing her in a skimpy fairy costume for Halloween. Her feet were firmly planted in suburban reality and she had no reason to believe her life would be anything but that of a typical teenager. That is until tonight, when Cassie saw something that no human was ever supposed to see; in the blink of an eye she was thrown into the world of the Light and Dark Elves.
He comes from a realm where light and dark have fought for millennia. He is of a race known to humans only in myths and legends. The darkness that lives inside him is a part of both who and what he is and it makes him the most gifted spy and assassin in the history of his time. His life is not his own; he lives in the service of the Dark Elf King. He slays who he must, has mercy on no one, is relentless in his hunt, and never tires of seeing his prey fall. He is Triktapic, assassin, spy, most feared of the Dark Elves.
Now, in the midst of his King’s complicated plans to expand the Dark Elves’ holdings into the mortal realm, for the first time, Trik finds his loyalties divided. For no Elf, Dark or Light, can turn away from their Chosen.
Unbeknownst to the mortal realm, the battle between Light and Dark is being brought to their doorstep. The only one who can keep it at bay holds darkness in his heart like a lover, and the one who can sway that heart must decide if she can look beyond his black past, beyond his evil nature and see the man he is destined to be.
The questions must be asked, does love really cover a multitude of sins? Can true love actually conquer all or will his darkness consume those around him until all that stands is an assassin with the blood of the mortal realm on his hands?

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY SIX!!!

Welcome to Day Six of the Week of Quinn!
Its the last leg of the race!
Today is the review for Quinn's latest book in the Grey Wolves Series, Fate and Fury!



The last few days have been the darkest of Sally’s life. After experiencing the joy of finding her mate, she now suffers the pain of losing everything she holds dear. Both the Romanian and Serbian packs have been captured, ripping Sally’s soul mate away from her almost as soon as she had found him. Her best friend and the emotional glue that usually holds Sally together, Jacque Pierce, lies writhing in a restless coma, having been put down by Desdemona’s dark magic. Jennifer Adams, the unshakable one, has revealed to her friends and her mate that she is pregnant, but the Fates have marked her unborn baby for death. Though she rails against the darkness, deep inside Jen knows that Decebel’s baby must die as payment for her own life, and the knowledge is tearing her soul to pieces. Cypher, King of the Warlocks, has claimed Jacque’s mother as his mate and agreed to help Desdemona open a door that would release a horde of demons from beyond the Veil.
Though her world is crashing down around her, Sally holds out hope. The Great Luna is not sitting idly by. She has commanded the Fey council to call upon the packs—all of them. And though Cypher looks for a way to open the Veil for Desdemona, he struggles to protect Lilly and the wolves at the same time. Peri, the ever-courageous High Fae, and a contingent of the remaining females of the Romanian and Serbian packs, push on through the rough Carpathian Mountains. Though they are bound to the human realm, they continue to search for a way to cross over to the land of the Fey. Meanwhile, in reluctant obedience to the Great Luna, the Fey council sends representatives to the far corners of the globe, meeting with the pack Alphas. The Fey must convince the Alphas of every pack to lay aside their petty territorial squabbles and battles of dominance. If they refuse, both the humans and the supernatural races will fall at Mona’s feet.
Sally holds to a shred of hope. Though Vasile, Decebel, and their pack mates endure the torture of the In-Between, living their worst nightmares over and over, Sally holds. Though she knows that it is only a matter of time before their wolves take over, she holds. Sally knows that if the males die, then so too will their mates who have performed the Blood Rites, including her best friends Jen and Jacque. Yet she holds. If the males lose themselves to their wolves and turn feral, so too do their mates. Still she holds. Though Vasile, the strongest Alpha in their history to unite the wolves, is lost beyond the Veil, Sally holds. Though Decebel, the only other wolf besides Vaile strong enough to unite the packs, suffers beyond the Veil, Sally will hold. No one is left to unite their race, and defeat Desdemona. Yet Sally still holds. She holds out hope that the Great Luna will not abandon them, cannot abandon them. Throughout the centuries, the Great Luna has always provided a gypsy healer to the packs, especially in times of great need. Now Sally is that healer. Sally fears what role she has to play in the defeat of Desdemona, but she will play it. Though heaven and hell unite against her, she WILL play it.
For too long the supernatural races have lived in separation, warring amoungst themselves, allowing trivial power plays and selfish disputes to keep them from uniting. That separation has made them weak. Now, being summoned as a collective force to the same land, will they come? Will they come in numbers greater than have been seen in centuries? Will they destroy each other and save Mona the trouble, or will they finally unite and fight as one?

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY FIVE!!!

The days just keep a rollin' by ;)
It's day FIVE!
We're ALMOST there, but not quite, so hold onto your panties because the rides still going.
 
Today is the review of Beyond The Veil
 

Though the Serbian pack has been brought to heel thanks to the downfall of their Alpha, the war is far from over.
Desdemona, a witch of unfathomable power, has escaped the wolves’ wrath, but she will not go quietly into the night. She takes refuge in a place where even the smallest sliver of light does not dare to enter. Though she had to flee, she has not given up on the treasure she wishes to acquire. Her depravity knows no bounds; she's even willing to search for the one who can assist her in opening a Veil that has not been opened in millennia – with good reason: the danger is incalculable.
Meanwhile, there are major changes rippling through the Romanian Grey wolves. Decebel has become Alpha to the Serbian pack in an effort to begin to unite the Canis lupis species. Their numbers are dwindling in the wake of the shortage of true mates and lack of offspring. The wolves are beginning to lose faith and darkness seems to be crashing in on them from all sides. But the winds of change are blowing, changes that will alter the future of not only the Canis lupis, but of another ancient race as well.
Amidst all of this, Sally is continuing to come to terms with her relationship with the playful, charming, flirty, unbelievably handsome bartender – who happens to be a member of the Romanian pack.
If all that weren’t enough, the Fates have decided to pay a little visit to Jen. It’s time to collect. She cheated the Fates of a life, her life. Now they want what they are due. The problem? It’s more than Jen is willing to pay.
Yes, the war is indeed far from over. Bargains will be struck, declarations will be made, sacrifices will be given, love will be tested, and trust will be questioned as evil makes its stand against them all.

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY FOUR!!!!

Welcome to Day FOUR!
We only have 3 days left to finish out the Week of Quinn *cries*
They're too good to let go!
Today is the review for:
 

Darkness has descended on the Transylvanian Alps.
Four packs of the powerful Grey wolves – in a rare show of cooperation – had joined together here in an effort to help their pack members find true mates. Then they were betrayed by one of their own – an Alpha hell-bent on becoming the most powerful of the Canis lupis. And though the wolf's assassination attempt on the currently-reigning Romanian Alpha failed, his plans to get Decebel, the Romanian Beta, out of the picture were coming together even as his treachery was discovered. The wolf fled, leaving destruction, death, and a missing mate behind him.
Unbeknownst to the other packs, the wolf has employed a witch to finish the deadly job and help him gain another tool to increase his power. A curse of devastating proportions will cripple Decebel in a way that may dissolve his fragile bond with Jennifer. Meanwhile, injured and alone, Jen has been fighting for her life. She had come to terms with her fate, accepting that she would not share a life with Decebel, until help came in the most unexpected form...
Vasile will have to use all his resources – including Sally, the new gypsy healer of the Romanian pack – to discover a way in which to destroy the witch, lift the curse from Decebel and reunite him with the one woman who makes him whole, and solve a mystery that's been surrounding the Romanian pack for 300 years.


The sh*t hits the fan in Out of the Dark!
And what I mean by that is: Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen! It's about to get even more awesome up in here!
 
We continue the journey, meeting more new characters that each have a set of traits that are truly astounding.
From start to finish you will be sucked into the fascinating world that Quinn has created.
You'll be thrown through some epic loops during this book, followed by the whiplash effect of being b*tch slapped by what-the-ef moments!
 
Throughout the Week of Quinn, you've heard me go on and on about how awesome her work is.
You're probably sitting there going, 'yeah right, nothing can be THAT awesome.'
Well, here's some proof that you're wrong (and because you guys are probably tired of me right now ;) ).

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY THREE!!!

Woot woot! We're at day three!
Want to apologize to everyone for this posting late (like, really late) in the day.
Have had some massive computer problems to the point where I've had to go out and buy a new freaking laptop!
So bad news! This is sorta late! Good news, brand spanking new laptop!
Wooooo!
Today is the review of:
 
Just One Drop
 

Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human...or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn't more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane's pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel. Drawn to each other by something they don't understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn't taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won't ever find their true mates. Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can't seem to get enough of...go figure.

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY TWO!!

Welcome to Day TWO of the Week of Quinn!
*happy dance*
Today is the Review for:
 

With the challenge complete and the corrupt Alpha of Coldspring defeated Fane is now free to complete the mate bond with Jacque and perform the Blood Rites. Although the challenge is done, the affects are far reaching. Once it is known that Vasile one of the strongest Alphas in the world is in America, specifically Coldspring, TX, there is one Alpha who cannot over look the significance of this. An Alpha who happens to share Jacque's DNA, but is this the one she needs to fear?
With her mom driving and her two best friends, Jen and Sally in tow, Jacque set off for her happily ever after. She will soon realize a plan has been put in motion that will change her course and possibly tear her from Fane's grasp forever. It will take a wolf pack, her mother's love, her two best friend's unrelenting determination, her own will to survive and the undying love of her mate to bring her home. The question remains, if she fights, if she endures, who will she be, what will be left once she is back in her mates arms?

A WEEK OF QUINN DAY ONE!!!

Welcome to Day ONE of the Week of Quinn!
Are you guys excited? Because I AM!
Not only is Quinn an absolutely brilliant writer, but she's an adorably sweet person as well!
I mean, seriously, she's sooo freaking sweet it gives me a tooth ache!
 
 

Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis Lupus, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?
