Introducing Kai Williams......
Monday, November 24, 2014
Sorry I've been so negligent in posting on my blog. During the school year, it's difficult to find the time to write. So since I'm off for the week, I thought I'd take some of my free time to put words to paper or computer actually.
Now the trick is to find all of that free time because while I'm off I also want to get a few things done. So I'll get back to writing after I clean all the tile floor, shampoo the carpet, drop my car off to be worked on, clean out the closets and kitchen cabinets, cook dinner every night, decorate the house for Christmas, take Gracie to the groomer, and spend quality time with the family. No problem! That should leave me plenty of time to write. Right?
I have made some progress with my writing. I just sent the final edits for Taint Book 2 in The Unloveable Series back to my publisher. I've got a shifter book a third of the way written, a fourth book in The Teacher Series half written (which I'll probably never finish), the outline for Trust Book 3 in The Unloveable Series outlined, and a new Highlander Book outlined.
I've wrestled with which book I should focus on but thankfully the decision was made for me. Highlander Ewan and Cate have been screaming the loudest in my head so their story will be written first. Now I just need to actually get their story in the computer. Piece of cake!
I wish all of you a happy and safe holiday!

Abandon The Unloveable Series Book 1Hi everyone!
I want to sincerely thank Sam Crescent, The Script Chics, and Steamy Book Momma for helping me celebrate this new series. To thank all of my readers, I'm giving away a signed copy of Schooled, Lessons, Parental Involvement, The Highlander's Treasure, an e-copy of Abandon, and lots of swag.
On the 17th of this month, I'll celebrate the first anniversary of becoming a published author. Abandon will be my 5th published book and I still have to pinch myself from time to time because I can't believe my dream came true. I'm really excited about this new series and know I'm truly blessed!
Bye for now!

I've written a new series about a team of mercenaries that feel like they're unloveable because of their background. The first book will be released on Oct. 10th. Here's a sneak peak!

I spent the weekend in Rogers, Arkansas at the Indie Mashup hosted by This Redhead Loves Books. My daughter, Jessie, and my son, Nate, went with me to help set up. We had a great time! I had the pleasure to meet a lot of talented authors and very attractive models. I shared a table with Best Selling Author, Jennifer Theriot. What a nice lady and fellow Texan. I can't wait to go to the Houston Mashup on August 15th and 16th!
I have a new series called The Unlovable Series coming out this fall. Abandon, the first book in the series, will be released Oct. 10th and I just got a sneak peek at the cover, and it's hot! I'll share more about The Unlovable Series soon.
Bye for now!

I'm so excited that my historic romance novel, The Highlander's Treasure was released today. I'm such a huge fan of Highlander books that I wanted to write one. This book is actually the very first book I ever wrote and will always have a special place in my heart. I hope that everyone enjoys reading it as much as I did writing it.
I'm also thrilled to be going to Rodgers, Arkansas to be a part of the Indie Mashup hosted by This Red Head Loves Books. I'm as excited to meet the other authors as I am to be one of the authors. I don't think it's a secret that I'm a romance novel addict, and I've read many books by some of the authors that will be there. Another reason I'm excited is my son and daughter will be going with me! It's not often that my 20 and 17 year olds want to do anything together, so I'm thrilled they are giving up their time to go with me.
Book Cover Diva designed a sign for me to take to the mashup. Isn't gorgeous?

It's been a while since I've posted a blog. This is the crazy time of year in education because we're preparing students for and administering state academic testing, so I've purposely backed off some other things like blogging.
Parental Involvement, Book 3 in The Teacher Series will be released on May 3rd!
I currently have three projects started, but I probably won't find the time to finish them until school is out. I'm writing book 4 in The Teacher Series, a paranormal/shifter romance, and a serious contemporary romance. I'm not sure I can pull off a story without humor but I'm trying.
I'm really excited about going to the Springdale Arkansas and Houston Texas Indie Author Mashups. Not only will I get to meet some of my favorite authors but I'll also get a chance to interact with readers.
Bye for now!

Spring Fling Blog Hop
I think every season is perfect for romance or at least romance novels. I'm not just an author, I'm a romance junkie. My to-be-read list is longer than my grocery receipt, but I don't mind because I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't have a book to read.
I'm the author of The Teacher Series. Book 1 and 2 have already been released and book 3 comes out May 3rd. I combined three of my loves: teaching, writing, and comedy.
If you get a chance, like my Facebook page and then leave a message with your address. I'd love to send you some swag.
I'm giving away an e-book of Lessons Book 2 in The Teacher Series. All you have to do is leave a comment with the name of your favorite teacher and you'll be entered to win.

March is crazy busy for me. I'm trying a different marketing approach in hopes it will boost sales. I'm posting on other people's blogs, hosting a Facebook author takeover, participating in a couple Facebook events, I'm a stop on a blog hop, and I'm dropping off swag at a local independent book store. I almost forgot that I'm also writing two books simultaneously. Whew, that's a lot for an old woman! Each event will be posted on Facebook so everyone can find Michelle instead of Waldo.
I've taken a leap of faith by requesting a couple of bloggers review Lessons. I'm still so insecure about my writing. I'm going to do my best not to worry while I wait for their reviews.
For all my fellow teachers out there, enjoy your spring break because it's a long stretch to the end of the year.
Bye for now.
