My 1st Novel – DONE!

I took a little hiatus this summer from my blog.  The main reason was to finish and polish my first novel and enjoy the summer with the family.  I’m happy to report, the novel ‘Magick’ is being published Sept 16, 2016, and is available for pre-order now.

Yahoo! MAGICK is here.

It’s been such an experience and an exciting time for me so far, although I tend to dread the marketing piece of being an indie author, none the less, I’m jumping on the train.  It’s also providing the momentum of writing the 2nd book – I ended up with a series on my hands!

I write under the pen name, Mira Monroe.  A story for another time as to why…  It’s a YA (Young Adult) fantasy novel for ages 14 and up.  If you enjoy a fun adventure check out it out.

Avg. 4-star reviews on Goodreads thus far in ARCs; as one reviewer said:

…I love a good ending and usually, I either remove or add one star to my final rating because of it. It was very tensed, full of action and magick and it all went really well. I was really excited at the end and this fact speaks for itself… – Reviewer

Well worth checking out this new author Mira Monroe!! I was lucky to get an advanced readers copy, but it comes out soon. Magick sets up a delightful maze of alternative realms. It’s ingenious. And just when you are truly frustrated (but in a good way like on the edge of your seat) the story unfolds beautifully. I’d almost describe it as a psychological mind teaser with alternate planes and realms set in the current day and with an almost fairy tale style… – Author of First Born, Janelle Gabay

MAGICK

Willow and her best friends, Emily and Lucy, are making plans for a great senior year and daydreaming about life away from sleepy Chepstow, Massachusetts. Willow tries for a life under the radar, where her biggest adventure is dating Daniel – voted best all-around guy. Her life is perfect, until a long-lost grandmother reveals that not only does she come from a long line of Wiccans, but she’s also part of the royal family – and next in line for the crown! Not everyone is happy to discover this outsider is about to take the throne, and Willow’s life is in danger – along with those around her. Willow’s world is turning upside-down, as a new realm invades, complete with rogue Guardians and a handsome warrior who’s sworn to stand by her side. Rhydian knows everything she doesn’t, and Willow must learn to use her magick to uncover the dark secrets about her family’s past in order to save the Edayri realm and everyone she’s ever loved before it’s too late.

Thanks to all my fellow writing peeps for the support over the last 9-12 months.  It’s a fantastic community of support and I love it.  Cheers to a great weekend!

Infamous-ly fantastic!

There is a lot of buzz about the Hunger Games, I did not board that train, because I didn’t get hooked within the first few chapters so, I gave up.  Maybe I’ll give it a go later, but my excitement is all about Nick, Nick Gautier (pronounced Go-Shay).

Infamous is the title of the 3rd book in the ‘Chronicle’s of Nick’ series written by the talented, Sherrilyn Kenyon.  I received this via my Kindle on March 13th and had it read by March 16th – yep it’s that good, a bit darker but still a great ride!  This is a young adult spin off of one of my favorite characters in the adult paranormal romance series ‘The Dark Hunters’ by the same author.  I have to admit I just want to know what is going to happen with this character and how this will be weaved into ‘The Dark Hunters’ series.  If you haven’t given it a try, you should or at least your teens should… what an adventure and what fun!

About the book:

Now Nick’s saga continues in the next eagerly anticipated volume…

Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him.

He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive such a difficulty? But that isn’t the primary skill he has to master. Survival is.

And in order to survive, his next lesson makes all the others pale in comparison. He is on the brink of becoming either the greatest hero mankind has ever known.
