Happy Friday!

I think I have mentioned, I'm easily amused. Got excited to see Virginia Romance Writer's link to me, my name coming up on Google (I am a Google babe *g*), etc. Now, the other day I went to Loose Id's site to look at something. And swung by the page where they list authors/artists/editors/management. Saw my name and started bouncing in the chair! Said "Oh wow! My publisher has a link to me!"

So I click it. LOL and it leads nowhere. The link was wrong. It was a funny "I'm author, hear me roar!" moment quickly followed by an "Or not" moment.

Now I contacted Loose Id, and they already fixed it! I was quite happy they did it already, didn't take long at all. My hat is off to their webmistress for getting to it so quickly and efficiently.

So now I can go to Loose Id ( and click on my name to get to my website *beams*. Why yes, I have done that a few times now already.

When "Blood Kiss" is listed on the web site, I'm thinking I'm going to have to visit it a few times...a day. For a while at least.

I applied for and got my PRO status from RWA. It recognizes that you've completed a manuscript and queried a publisher or an agent or have been published by a non-RWA recognized publisher. I received a PRO pin. I'm excited about it. I know every little bit of information you can get to improve writing and make connections helps. Loose Id has been a godsend in that area. I've learned a lot from being there in the Loose Id community and the author community.

I read an advanced reading copy of "Christy's Ghost." Wow! It was an eerie, sensual read that had me turning pages until the end. It's being released soon from Loose Id. Check it out and look at that cover. Haunting *g*.

May the muses have Reeses

I'm glad D got your link fixed so fast - she's great that way. And I can't wait until Blood Kiss comes out either. :)

Links are fun. Googling yourself is fun. And obsessive. It's a great way to procrastinate!!!

Isn't it great to see your name on a publisher's site? Yes, I google, yahoo, and msn myself on my lunch hour. It's pathetic, my coworkers say it's pathetic...what's a writer to do? Nice site, by the way.

Nice blog site, Michele. :-)

I do that too, you know. I googled myself (smirks)it sounds a bit like selfgratification eww. LOL, no! It's cool! I am into my second book now, I still haven't gotten the nerve to actually submit the first one though, I have no idea if I wish to go paper or ebook. I am most confused. I am so happy for you missy! (hugs) And maybe I will get the courage soon... courage.. I am the Cowardly Lion. Perhaps if there is a chocy incentive.

My first book came out in May and I still sneak peeks at it and I admit to googling myself every few days (to find new reviews, honest!) and I get giddy when I see each new page and reference.

I honestly hope that I never get so jaded that this all isn't the coolest stuff ever.

Congratulations, Mechele, bask in it because it's really worth celebration.
