Michelle, Mary, and Me

Today’s post is brought to you by the Letter M.

M is for Michelle

Spiralling Out of Control by Michelle Dennis Evans

Temptation, depression, seduction, betrayal ... Not what Stephanie was expecting at fifteen years of age. Uprooted from her happy, all-girl high school life with a dream filled future and thrown into an unfriendly co-ed school, Stephanie spirals into depression. 
When charismatic high school senior, Jason notices her, Stephanie jumps in feet first and willingly puts all her faith and trust in him, a boy she barely knows. 
Every choice she makes and turn she takes leads her towards a dangerous path.
Her best friend is never far away and ready to catch her … but will she push Tabbie too far away when she needs her most?

This novel contains adult themes.
Recommended reading audiences 15+

Available from Amazon or the Michelle Dennis Evans WEBPAGE.

M is for Mary

I met the endearing Mary O’Regan during Niamh Boyce’s The Herbalist 

tour. I enjoy the clips and poems Mary posts on her Blog. 

Mary writes fiction and nonfiction. She’s a writer for The Catholic Herald. 

On her blog, she’s started a “How I Met my Husband” series and has invited me to participate.

M is for Me

Please visit Mary's BLOG  and find out how I met my husband. There’s friendship, romance, and delinquency. And The Breakfast Club (sort of).

Autumn's Crest

Remember all that good news I shared on that other Post? 

No agents have gotten back to me yet. My inbox is eerily silent. Perhaps it’s haunted?

But I must continue to juggling and accidentally dropping beanbags while I hope for some inbox exorcism that leads to page requests. I’m up to 21k+ in the new YA. Upwards and onwards.

This month, I did get a little happy news. My poem, “Autumn’s Crest,” was accepted in Halcyon Magazine. 

The magazine is free online. Details to purchase the gorgeous magazine are included in the link above.

If that link doesn’t work, click this link. 

And if you’re interested in submitting for the Winter issue, details are HERE. 

While I continue to write, query, and wait, these small successes keep me going. I always hope I’m about to crest towards success. 

My critique group’s writing retreat 2 weeks ago filled me with inspiration in many ways. The view certainly helped.

I wish you could smell the crisp air.
Thanks, Judy Mintz. 

Writers, what keeps you going?
