Unfortunately, a lot of Christian readers prefer the rated G type stories. But there is a niche market out there of people who like to read about real conflict. Just be honest and be yourself. I've written about every taboo subject out there and most people find the stories insightful, but there are a few people who hate them because the characters aren't perfect and mess up a lot. So technically if you write a good story and word gets out that it's a good story and the writing is good, then you'll get a readership that way. The only other option is to sell-out and write straight up secular fiction (which is impossible for me to do) or write stuff with no depth just to make sure you don't offend anyone (also not me.) I may not be getting rich, but I know that my books do touch readers hearts and even if it only changes one person's life, that's enough to keep me going. Sorry for such a long answer. (less)

About the book:

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want―money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly Read more of this blog post »

Jeremy Hi Michelle!

If you don't mind sharing--I was wondering, what's your favorite book of all time?

Here’s wishing you a weekend filled with wacky whims, wonderful weirdness, and well-disposed werecats.

-Jeremy :)


Jeremy Hi Michelle!

Here’s wishing you a yippee-filled Yuletime overflowing with yard-long yams, yapping yoyo-yanking yetis, yak-milk yeast-cakes, and yellow yarn-yielding year-end yard-gnomes.

-Jeremy :)


Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:
http://hauntedhousedressing.com/signe...


Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me yesterday. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened to create so many messages. Some weird glitch.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

btw Michelle, I've added your book It's Not About Me to my to-read list.


♥ Ibrahim ♥ Michelle, my sister,

Seeing what you are doing, one verse came to my mind in Arabic, and I shall quote it to you here in Hebrew:
יג צַדִּיק, כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח; כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה.

This is you. Psalm 92: 13. I have nothing more to say.

Keep being productive for our Lord of the Vineyard.

In Christ our Victor,

Ibrahim

I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads.

This site is brand new and in the editing stage as is our story. Please visit it as well.

If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com and all it has to offer, please ask. I'll be happy to answer. I’ll also update news when I can for example; did you know that in March Silhouette Desires will be putting out their 2000th book? The authors are celebrating with a special blog on eHarlequin.com :).

I wish! I had a deadline that I just finished a few days ago, but I had a trip to visit my dad who is terminally ill so that bumped it forward, then I was sick and had stuff back up. I just need to wade through the Carol books now that the Grace Awards are over. Then there are the blog tours. It never ends. I do have it slated to read hopefully no later than June. I will get to it sooner if I can. I just got swamped.
