I often hear people saying that maintaining a blog is better when you keep to a particular topic or theme, but then what fun would that be? My posts leap and bound in many directions and it keeps it challenging and fun for me. Lately though I have settled down to more of a pattern – a post featuring another author and my end of month Chilling Corner. These have become my definite inclusions. In between it is a case of whatever strikes my fancy. I do need to be more disciplined and work on my second novel, Unexpected Passion, a work now too long in progress and I will.
Meantime this featuring of others continues because I enjoy it’ and it is my way of contributing to the writing community which is a very generous one. This time I was approached by the author and it was so lovely to be asked to do this. Though I do generally have favourites I am open to others being featured because diversity of reading and writing styles is what books are all about. And presenting this is what I want my blog to be about.
We are all so different in our likes and dislikes but we can only learn this through constant exposure to things. Giving someone a chance is what I ask of others and I can’t ask that for me if I am not willing to give it. P.S. Don’t you love her choice of mood music to start off this post?
This month we meet M.L. Tompsett who is an emerging author of action fantasy paranormal romance. It’s You, is her fifth book and part of the Sex Lies and Family Secrets series and she asks you to come and join the journey with Dark Ones, Assassins, Wolves, Vampires & Witches and there you will discover:
“The life of a princess is never easy… but I must survive at all costs and protect not only my daughter but also my heart, if I’m going to be the next Queen of Silver”
Creating worlds in my head since I was little and discovered writing became my escape the everyday life and delved into the unknown, and years later I and still enjoy writing imaginative make-believe worlds with interesting characters, finally moving forward to the big wide scary world of digital and print publishing.
I am married to my childhood sweetheart, and we live in Victoria, Australia and have two fully grown extremely talented in their own way – sons. Over the years, I have worn different hats, apart from being a full-time caring mum and loving wife. I have also been a secretary, a football manager, basketball coach, manager’s assistant, mum taxi, business owner, author and a lover of fine chocolate, okay, nearly any type of chocolate, especially milk chocolate covered liquorice. (YUM) And a drinker of tea.
STAY by Shakespear’s Sister, is the song that started the ball rolling in my head, the characters, places and storyline developed and from there my book series was formed. It is exciting to see something I have been working on for far too long finally become a reality. I am currently working on the next two books in my two different series. Fingers crossed they will be out next year, and maybe another paranormal book.
I believe in, never allow someone to tell you – that you cannot do something you love to do. For me it is writing. For anyone out there sharing the dream and needing some help turning their completed manuscript into a print book, eBook or both I also create digital files – ready for uploading.
M. L. Tompsett
