I’m a writer who has self-published over eighty titles, most under other pen names, but since this was the first pen name I started this is where I primarily blog about this whole writing journey.
This blog is mostly geared towards other writers. It contains links to posts by other writers that I found useful during my own progression as a writer as well as my own personal ramblings on being a writer and life.
If you want to find the advice from others look for posts under the category “Advice” or “Writing-Advice.” If you want my ramblings, look for “General Musings” or “Writing-General Musings.” If you want the posts where I get all philosophical about life in general look for the ones under “Life.”
If you’re interested in more about my writing in particular, look for posts categorized “My Writing.”
And if you want to send me an e-mail just send it to my handle, “mhleewriter” at gmail.
I have Amazon author pages up in the US and in the UK.
I also have a bibliography tab on here and each cover photo should link to the book’s Amazon page in the US. (Sorry, I’m a self-centered American, but that is also where the majority of my sales come from, too, so, ya know.)
Nice to meet you.
I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. You can read more about it here: http://staciebrown.wordpress.com/2012/10/04/liebster-blog-award/. Happy Blogging! 🙂
Thanks for the nomination, Stacie! Unfortunately, I am one of those anti-chain letter people. I even refuse to share those things on FaceBook where you’re supposed to share if you like children or wish people wouldn’t die of cancer. It’s a weird all or none thing I do…
But, I will say I believe in an instant connection when you first meet someone, but that it doesn’t mean things will actually work out and it may not be “love” per se. I read pretty much anything and everything, although my favorites tend to be SFF, Russian authors, and Spanish authors.
And I really don’t have any idols. I have an unfortunate ability to see everyone as far too human to put on a pedestal. But I’d say that if I had to choose someone it would be my father for all he survived in his life and how he still managed to be there for his family.
Thank you for replying, M, and you are welcome for the nomination. I don’t mind that you do not enjoy chain-letter-type things. I normally do not care for them either, but I can’t seem to resist these blog awards.
I enjoy reading your posts and I appreciate your taking the time to answer a few of my questions. I enjoy getting to know other bloggers, especially writers/authors. I like to know what makes people tick. 🙂
Glad you’re enjoying the blog. And congrats on your own award. Looks like it was your second one, so you’re definitely doing something right!
I nominated your blog for the Liebster award. I chose your blog because I enjoy reading it and find it interesting and useful. Whether or not you like blog awards, know that your work is appreciated!
Thank you so much! I AM terrible at these things. One because the thought of 11 to the tenth power seems like a very large number and two because as much as I talk about myself, I hate to talk about myself.
I’ll share my favorite dream (#4): A year or so ago I dreamt that I was in a plane that was landing. (This was actually before that Denzel Washington movie…) Anyway, the plane was coming in to land and a giant gust of wind caught the wing of the plane and flipped it over and instead of crashing we landed upside down. No one was injured. We let ourselves out of our seats and when we went to leave there were all kinds of people waiting to board as if it were the subway.
I liked it because here I was facing a catastrophic situation and it was all fine.
And music (#3): I listen to almost everything that has lyrics and isn’t angry. Recently I’ve been spending way too much money on the music from Nashville.
The most recent additions to my favorites playlist (which has 298 songs on it at the moment) are: As You Turn Away (Lady Antebellum), Change Your Mind (Nashville Cast), One More Night (Maroon 5), Lonely is the Night (Billy Squire), Change (Churchill), and Madness (Muse).
I can definitely see the appeal of that dream. I used to have similar dreams, though I don’t remember them very well. I like Maroon 5 and Muse, but I’m not familiar with the other artists. Maybe I am and I don’t know it. I’ll check out those songs 🙂
Warning – a few are country, so if you don’t like country music stay away from the Lady Antebellum and Nashville ones. 🙂
I don’t tend to like country, but that doesn’t mean I won’t like them. I take it on a case by case basis. There are country songs I quite enjoy. So I’ll give them a shot. Thanks for the warning, though!
