    Thanks for stopping by – My fault Act 2 didn't post. – I thought I scheduled it but as I do most of these from my iphone my fingers missed the button and it stayed in draft.  Have remedied. 
    E.L.E stands for extinction level event, which supposedly the world has been through before and with 2012 prophecies looming, may go through again.  I am hopeful that as before some of who and what we are always survives.  Act 2 posted July 13 and is up now.  Thanks again.

    Hey, Michelle,
    Wanted to let you know that if you don't have a Kindle, you can download Kindle for PC and then download the book to read. Dunno if you can manage that though as it can be murder on the eyes, reading from a computer screen.

    Hi Michelle:
    Just wanted to thank you for stopping by during my recent blog tour for my debut novel, Finding Claire Fletcher.  I do appreciate it.  Hope you're having a lovely holiday season!

    Hi Michelle, I'd like to send you an email of the winnings from my blog giveaway, but the comment form above is not set up. Could you please send me your email to nlarondajohnson-author@yahoo.com. Thanks!


  14. S. Katherine Anthony on July 3, 2013 at 2:03 am

    Hi Michelle,

    I recently posted that I would have a cover reveal soon, it will be Wed. July 10th, and you said you might be interested in posting the cover for me. If you still are, can you please contact me at sk@skanthony.com 

    Thanks so much 😀

  15. Lexa Cain on July 3, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Hi Michelle! When you leave a comment on my blog, you put a direct link to your blog at the bottom of your comment. It's very handy for me as I can avoid opening a blogger or google page to get your blog addy. But how do you do insert the link? I've tried to do it with a=ref type html, but whatever blog I'm commenting on usually tells me that type of html isn't allowed.

    Thanks. ~ Lexa

  16. Sam on July 17, 2013 at 3:06 am

    Hey girl! I'm working out the last of the TREE OF LIFE: Branching Out collaborative writing challenge posting schedule for guest writers–shall I put you in? I sent a request awhile ago via FB, but I'm guessing you didn't see it:)Let me know as soon as you can–would love for you to join us!

  18. Nancy LaRonda Johnson on August 13, 2013 at 3:34 am

    Hi Michelle, wanted to see if you wanted to do the Next Big Thing blog hop. 

    I've been tagged to do a post on "The Next Big Thing" and am looking for others to tag next. If you don't know, this is when you answer questions about your work in progress. I'm posting tomorrow, but your post can be anywhere from a week to three weeks down the line, just let me know when you do post, if you accept, and tag 4 or more people after you.


    Please let me know as soon as possible whether you'd like to be tagged, so I can add you on my post tomorrow, and then I'll give you the questions your to answer. Hope to hear from you very soon.  ðŸ™‚

  19. Michael Di Gesu on September 12, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Thanks for you really sweet comment on my blog today. I really appreciated it, Michelle!

  20. Christine Rains on September 19, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Hi Michelle!

    Congratulations! You are the second place winner in the MORE THAN JUST A KISS blogfest! Yay! You have won a critique (of no more than 5 pages) from Laurelin Paige and myself.

    The winners will be announced officially tomorrow. Thank you so much for participating in the blogfest. Your kissing scene was well done!

  21. Gwen Gardner on October 31, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Hi Michelle! You're the winner of both my ebooks, Givin' Up The Ghost and A Guilty Ghost Surprised in the From The Great Beyond Bloghop. Please let me know which format you prefer, mobi, epub, pdf? Congratulations and thanks for participating. GwenMGardner@cox.net

  22. Lexa Cain on November 7, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Hi Michelle! You asked on my blog about how to find book bloggers. You can just Google "book review blog" and whatever genre you want. Then narrow them down to posted in the last month (to make sure they're still viable). If you find a big, good one you like, look at their blog roll and you'll find other book reviewers. You can network your way to bunches of them like this. 🙂

  23. Stephen Ramey on January 2, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    Hi Michelle.

    You've won a copy of my collection, Glass Animals, from the 'Tis More Blessed Raffle. Can you please contact me with your mailing address? stephen.v.ramey AT gmail DOT com or via my website. Thanks!

  24. Michael Di Gesu on January 20, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    HI, Michelle,


    How are you? I hope you had a wonderful weekend!… 


    I really enjoyed your poem for my bloghop and wanted to know where you live. You said earlier that you didn't qualify, so I am guesising out of the US. HOWEVER, I have decided, because there were so many truly wonderful entries to send enough COLOMBIAN coffe for the runner's up to enjoy…. A few pots worth at least. SO, if you are in Canada, I would definintlely like to send you some!



  25. Michael Di Gesu on February 20, 2014 at 4:35 am

    Hi, Michelle,


    I just wanted to let you know I posted for your bloghop… CONGRATS on THREE YEARS! Me too! LOL.

    Sounds like you really are enjoying your new job… good for you! I hope all is well and you've had time to figure out your next move for your new piece.

    Keep me posted. The timeing is great now for me. I am just finishing up a job now. I ususally like to foucs on only one or two at a time, so I don;t spread myself too thin. It's important to me to give my clients my complete attention.

    I hope you're well… Take care,

    Hi Michelle,

    I have just joined Insecure Writers Support Group. That much I could successfully do.

    Since you are an administrator, I figured you could help if you don't mind.

    I don't know how or where to find to the badge to put in my blog. 

    I have the HTML code from the site, and I believe I should go to my site, click on Blog Posts, find a way to add code. I just don't what happens then???

    When I successfully do that, how do I join the Weds. support group? I can blog as a computer geek, a skill I have luckily mastered, but how will my blog post reach this group? Will the code do it? Where will I see it? 

    Lastly, I am so confused, but I am hoping for a happy ending here.

    Thank you,


    Author –  A Sinister Obsession

So nice to meet another drabler! I found your llink here from a comment you left on a blog I follow for the A-Z. Come on over to my place and let's visit

  29. Debi O'Neille, writing against the wind on April 24, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    To send you a private email, because I had a couple questions about your suggestion turning my blog articles into an e-book. I did look at the other blog e-books, but I still have a couple questions. Unfortunately, I can't get that contact form to show an actual form, so I'm hoping you use the email button on my blog and send me an email, so that I can reply via email.

    Hi I'm looking for your contact info for a bookreview/post?

    Can you email me at EdenLiterary at gmail dot com

  35. Julien Ayotte on February 24, 2015 at 10:33 pm

    Thank you so much for the 5-star rating on “Flower of Heaven.” This was my debut novel at age 71 and it has received four national book awards in two years since it was released. Most of my readers are pleading for a movie on this novel, but wait, there is more. In August, 2014, I released the sequel, “Dangerous Bloodlines”, which promises an even better story than the first one, if you can believe it! And there is a major section set in Krugersdorp, South Africa, as well as action scenes in Mekelle, Ethiopia and the Middle East, while the romance and intrigue continues in the vineyards of Orvieto, Italy, and Stockholm, Sweden.
    “Dangerous Bloodlines”, in my opinion, is even more thrilling and heartwarming than “Flower of Heaven”, and I guarantee it will bring tears to your eyes. Now, if I can convince someone to take the two books together and make a blockbuster film, my life would be complete at age 73.
    I don’t know how you got to read “Flower of Heaven” in South Africa, but I can’t tell you how wonderful it makes me feel. Spread the word…especially when combined with “Dangerous Bloodlines”, you will not be disappointed, I promise. Reviews like yours make my day and, although the book carries a 4.6 rating on Amazon, the more ratings, the merrier.
    How can I reciprocate?
    Julien Ayotte

  36. Julien Ayotte on February 26, 2015 at 3:59 pm

    Thank you for the wonderful review of Flower of Heaven. How did you hear of the book in South Africa?

  37. Murees Dupé on February 26, 2015 at 8:33 pm

  40. Jessica Edouard on February 4, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    Because I am brilliant, when I entered my information in the wee hours of the morning on my phone at the IWSP site, I bungled. Entry #265 has the wrong website info for my blog. I re-entered with correct information and I curious if you can delete the bad site? Also, I would like to join the facebook page-https://www.facebook.com/jessica.edouard.1 🙂 Sorry for the headache and thank you! I am excited to join this group. <3

  41. Jessica Edouard on February 4, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    Oh my … IWSG … I am curious … coffee, here I come.

  42. Dee on March 3, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    Hello! I just signed up again for the IWSG- and I think I boo-booed as my blog address is coming up as my name on the list of bloggers. Is there any way to cancel that and then I can just sign up again? Sorry- I’m woefully technologically impaired…
    Thanks for your help!

  43. Nicola on April 27, 2016 at 7:05 pm

    Hi Michelle

    I was thrilled to read I’d won a copy of Cherie Reichs’ book. How do I claim it?

  47. joylene on March 4, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    It’s so good to be back at your blog. I hope you’re doing well. I was away for 18 months, so it’ll take a bit to catch up with your news. Which I’m going to do right now. Best to you, Michelle.

  48. Grace Mattioli on February 2, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Dear Michelle,

    I’m writing to tell you about my new literary fiction novel, The Bird that Sang in Color. This book has been workshopped with notable author, Lidia Yukvavitch, who called it “beautifully rendered, hugely moving, and brilliant.” It has received stellar reviews from various literary book blogs, individual reviewers, and Midwest Book Review.

    Part family drama and part self-actualization story, this is about Donna Greco, who in her teens, subscribes to a conventional view of success in life and pushes her freewheeling, artistic brother, Vincent to do the same. However, he refuses to conform and she harbors guilt for her supposed failure to ensure his happiness until she discovers a book of sketches he made of his life, which allows her to see his internal joy and prompts her own journey of living authentically.

    Based on your current book reviews, I believe you would really enjoy this read. I would love to send you a free copy in exchange for an Amazon review. Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience.

    Warm regards, Grace Mattioli
