Celebrating One Year!

Can you believe today is one year ago I started this blog? And when I started it I had no idea what I was doing, lol. Boy, a lot can change in one year. I kinda know what I'm doing now! *snort*
I can hear some of you laughing out there! *Eyes everyone out there in internet land* Oh hush, lol. I'm better than what I was. :) So what if there's been a few times I gave myself a headache trying to figure this thing out? Or butchered the English language while screaming at the laptop... yeah, lol. Even made up a few worlds. ;) LOL.
Looking back has been an eye opener. I'm shocked (and very thankful) how well my blog has grown. I've had a lot of fun doing it; and okay, there were times I wasn't too happy with things... but that's life, right? Life isn't a bowl of cherries. But I fumbled around until I found things that seem work. I've had some very interesting people on, found new author's I like (and hope you guys did too), and grown as a writer. Laughed at some of the funny things said here... both by myself and you guys! I can't wait to see what the next yeat brings, and see how I've grown at the end of it.

So, as a thank you, I'm running a very short contest. Starting from when this posts to Tuesday evening is the length of the contest. Yup, short, lol. I have some things planned for this week, and this was spur of the moment.

At the end of the contest, I'll pick one person to win a GC from Amazon for ten dollars. Just leave me a comment and an email addy.

Please remember the email addy or I can't contact you! I'll pick a winner and contact them by email. When they email me back, I'll send the GC. If I don't hear back by Wednesday afternoon, I'll pick another winner.

Thanks so much guys!



  1. I love all your stuff, can't wait to read more. I'm also waiting impatiently for the 11th to come so I can buy your new book. I read the first in the series and am eagerly anticipating both the second and the third. :)

  2. I have loved your work since ever since I stumbled upon The Harvest on Lit. I have enjoyed following your blog and can't wait to see what you come up with next! I have also discovered a lot of other great authors through your blog. So looking forward to the year to come!! :)

  3. Congratulations On what a wonderful year Hope there's many more.

  4. Omedetto!!!~ Congratulations!!! *throwing some confetti*. I really really love your stories from the very start (including in that site which you knew). I always check everyday if you have new updates...Keep up the good work...


  5. You sucked me in aaaaages ago with Soul Alchemy, and one week and many sleepless nights, I finished The Harvest for, oh, maybe the third time, and my love for your work has never wavered since. The Harvest alone I've probably read ten or eleven times, and when I have my own lovely digital copy, I know I'll read it many more times, as I did and do with Priceless. Ahhhh I can't express how much I love your work! For as long as you write, I'll be a fan. So much love!

  6. Congrats on one year and hopes for many more.

  7. Congrats M! I know you'll wanna smack me, but I can't believe it has only been a year! lol wait... I only mean, I would have thought it was longer b/c look at the blog! There is so much on it. You've been able to launch all those books (how many in a year?) and grow your fan base. I'm really impressed you found time to do this around all the writing. So keep it up and I wish you and your blog many more anniversaries :)

  9. Happy Birthday to you!! ;) Congrats on your awesome success! Can't wait to see what's in store next!

  11. I still laugh, thinking about my reaction when I was told about Nighttime Wishes. YOU TOOK TENTACLE PORN? SERIOUSLY?

    But I'm really glad she did (and for the record, it isn't really tentacle porn but it's damn hot!)

    I've enjoyed getting to you know you as a friend, and writing with you, and I just know GRL is gonna be a blast.

    Happy Blogiversary, Michelle!


    Whose email addy do you want? You didn't specify, just said AN email addy. How about Lucifer's? No wait, he doesn't have one. Judas does -

    Or you can have mine One of them, anyway lol

    Yep, I'm a cheeky bitch!

  12. Love your work!looking forward to more ^_^

  17. So excited for you! I was around last year when you were just starting out, and it's great to see how your membership has grown, as well as the success of your books! They're always at the top of my "to-read."


  18. I love your blog! I love to read new stuff but I do not have the money in the mooment to buy the things I want to read. So winning a GC would be really neat!

  19. Congratulations on your excellent web log. (The word "blog" makes me queasy for some reason.) I look forward to seeing more good stuff about you and other authors. Thank you!
