Hello all you gorgeous people! I wanted to take back over Tears for a moment and say thanks to an incredible start for 2014! As you may have noticed, I've been promoting some great authors lately on the site and haven't been doing much original posting. What am I doing? Well .... since you asked! I've been busy working on new titles and thought this would the perfect chance to share some of the incredible work by other authors. Kindle Alexander hooked me up with Ena at Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and I can't even tell you how hard those ladies work!
For my friends interested in M/M romances please go check out Kindle, if you're not already crazy about her books of course, and help support her as she deals with all the BS about people claiming she's buying book reviews. Let me say on that note, this lady has TONS of people signing up for ARC's of her work and it really is a load of BS, but that's an entirely full blog post in itself. She's been nothing but incredible to me and will always be considered a friend of Crimson. But here I go getting off topic again.
Enticing Journey promotes virtual book tours for authors. They work their arses off to make sure you find out about new books hitting the shelves. I've found plenty of incredible books to keep me reading when I should be writing thanks to them. So while I'm slaving away to bring you new titles, I decided to share these promotions. I remember how hard it was to get anyone to notice my work in the beginning and it's because of people that run these virtual tours that we get seen.
At the top of this post, you'll notice that awesome new glimpse into the personal author site. I hope you guys will take a minute to pop over and give your opinions. You can find it at www.authormichellehughes.com and I wish someone wasn't hogging michelle hughes dot com, but alas, that's breaks! Since the beginning of the year, book sales have been amazing! January ended with a top #100 overall bestseller, 5 Nights. That book is still kicking butt on the charts and Whore is starting to climb as well. I wish I could say I've had time to sit back and enjoy that, but another book has been possessing me, so I've been writing a little over 3,000 words a day on it. I'll release more info after all the copyright stuff is filed. Yes, I'm still a little leery about sharing things without one.
If you're reading this post, I hope you see the facebook like page, but I know some of you get these via email and not from the blog. I would love it if you take the time to like me at www.facebook.com/authormichellehughes since I spend hours there these days. So an updated author site, two books already kicking for 2014, and one in progress! Something tells me this might be a productive year? Add that to getting two teenage girls through high school, and my two little men in elementary, and yeah I haven't really had a lot of time to just breathe. But honestly I'm having the time of my life and you can rest when you're dead, right? Well okay not if you believe in ghosts, but let's cross that bridge when it comes!
These are my little angels at my sister's wedding.
I had to share their gorgeous faces. My teenagers are twins, but you'd never know it by looking at this picture. One wants to be a traveling nurse, the other wants to own a mortuary. My little men want to work for the FBI, CIA, or some form of law enforcement. Basically they just want to be able to shoot big guns, I'm not sure yet if I hope they continue that interest or decide to become something a little safer. Also I'm thinking American Dad might have influenced them a little on that, and you can blame my husband who's addicted to that show!
Can I get off topic or what? So back to what's going on. I'm hoping to get the work in progress finished up by the end of the month, and then it's on to the other million and one ideas running through my mind. I started out with three ideas for a book that merged into one, so who knows what I'll start working on next. I really don't get much control. My muse decides what it will allow me to write.
Thanks for glancing into my insanity for a few minutes! I'd love to hear what you're doing to kick 2014 with a huge bang! As always, I love hearing from you folks, so please drop me a line or comment here. I really do appreciate all the love and support you've given. I honestly can't say that enough. Who'd have thought some little homemaker from Rockford, Alabama could meet so many incredible friends! Whatever you're doing today, I hope it makes you smile and those dreams you're considering? Get out there and live them! Life is all about living the dream!
