Fantastic Review!


*Reviewed by Bitten By Books Rating: 5 out of 5 Tombstones

YIPPEE!

What do you get when you mix the Muse of Laughter, a calamity-ridden man, a fantastically eccentric red head, a Chihuahua with the heart of a rottweiler, and a task from the Gods? An utterly fabulous story filled with humor and depth, that's what. This story practically flew off the pages and I had so much fun... I loved this spin on Greek Mythology...and the back story for Drew's family curse was interesting. The interplay between the different deities was well done and a rather humorous version of what was said to happen rather frequently when Olympians take sides. I also got a real kick out of Thalia's various shoe stores. I highly recommend this tale if you're looking for a laugh out loud story that is the perfect remedy for a downer of a day or a long day at work.

Big Day! Big Day! for No Funny Stuff!

Song of the Muses Book III is RELEASED!





Wow, what an experience it's been. I must say the best part was meeting the Muse writers. Alisha Paige is the Best of the Best people I've ever met. Masha Holl and Hywela Lyn (Both have marvelous stories in Book II) have been adorable. The other muses were just fabulous folk, and I'm proud to have worked with many of them.


My title, No Funny Stuff!, did pretty well, staying #1 on The Wild Rose Press's Bestsellers List for a solid month, and sat on the Bestsellers List over 2 months! I'm very proud. TWRP was wonderful to me, and my editor Ami was awesome. It feels like the end of something great, even though I'll have a long history with TWRP. More stories are coming. I have two more contracts in the works with other publishers.


Writing for Thalia, the Muse of Comedy, was a whole lot of fun. I just might write another. She's a wealth of unmined gold.


Buy your copy now! E-book or paperback! Your favorite flavor! Laughs aplenty!


Love, Michele

Halloween night, I’ll be at the #1 Halloween party in 100 miles radius! I’m lugging out my fire-dragon sorceress costume—my very favorite costume--and going to town. The party’s thrown at a with cool things to look at and good food and drink. I can hardly wait. I don’t get out much.

I love this costume because the corset was made by a friend of mine who has passed away--too early--so wearing it is one of those times when I honor his memory. Gold leather with a dragon etched into it, identical to the dragon necklace of the costume. Wearing his creation on the night the dead are closest to the veil separating the worlds, I think of him.

Bless you, Bret, wherever you are, and thank you for your talent and craftsmanship.

Everyone commenting on my blog will be entered into a drawing for a copy of my Greek Romance novella, No Funny Stuff!

Everyone, have a safe and fun night,

PINK RIBBONS! Laughter: An Essential Part of Breast Cancer Recovery


“Laugh when you can. It is the best medicine.” Lord Byron

How can a few jokes change the course of breast cancer?

Researchers are finding that those who laugh a lot through their breast cancer treatments have a high rate of recovery and a low rate of remission. Why, you ask? Laughter floods our bodies with chemicals called endorphins. These ‘happy” chemicals alter our bodies into staying happy. Becoming happy creates a chemical map to remain happy. It’s a lot like smiling when you don’t feel like it. Fake a few smiles when you’re unhappy, and you’ll find yourself feeling better and spreading joy beyond yourself.

But, can laughter kill cancer, physically-speaking?

"One characteristic of the cancer patient who does well,” says Dr. Michael B. Van Scoy-Morsher, an oncologist in California, “is the ability to often put cancer in the background for periods of time."

That’s what laughter can do, put breast cancer on the back burner of the body and healing in the forefront. Humor gives us power over things that bring us down, gives life to hope, and hope to life. The worst problem can lift a bit with a hardy guffaw or a bashful smile. Laughing relieves the stress that contributes to cancer, giving our bodies a “vacation”.

Humor affects our entire brain, especially the prefrontal cortex, the nest of perception and mood. The emotions and moods we experience directly affect our immune system, strengthening our fight against the challenge of breast cancer. Laughter often shows us what’s most important and real in life. A sense of humor allows us to perceive and appreciate the incongruities of life and provides moments of joy and delight. These positive emotions can create neurochemical changes that will buffer the immunosuppressive effects of diseases and stress. That’s helping your treatment along the way.

The secret of laughter … is that our bodies are hardwired with some surprisingly powerful natural reactions to extended hearty laughter. These side effects include:

•Blood & all major organs are fully oxygenated leaving us bursting with energy
•Blood pressure drops, circulation improves and pulse rate drops
•Depression is lifted, even chronic depression is often cured
•High endorphin levels put us in a great mood and reduce any aches & pains
•Immune, digestive & sexual systems that are switched off by stress are switched on
•Self confidence is boosted, communication skills and creativity are boosted
•Our lymphatic system is massaged and our immune systems boosted
•Stress levels reduce by 75% or more and we become more stress resistant
(Source: Laughter Yoga)

Humor is the Anti-Cancer. Laugh at the enemy and you will win the everyday battles.

So chuckle when your hair falls out from chemo. Buy crazy wigs. Use this chance to see how you’d look in different hairstyles and colors! Write a funny song about mammograms and sing it to your friends and yourself every day. Smile at your kids at play. Snicker when your dog chases his tail. Build yourself a DVD collection of movies that crack you up. Collect jokes, plan fun. Imagine that breast cancer as a small adversary to your grand attitude. Time flies when you’re having fun!

A breast cancer diagnosis is not a choice; it’s a challenge. How you face and deal with your breast cancer is your choice. Laugh your way into more life. Make breast cancer your favorite target of hilarity and humiliation. Attack the attack, a German martial arts concept. Make your humor more progressive than your sickness.

Here’s to LaughAngeles.com and their list of 40 Laughter Exercises!:
http://www.laughangeles.com/40-laughter-exercises.php

Wishing you good health of body and laughter of soul.

The Person Most Excited

The greatest people I've come across in my life are a wonderful couple named Ron and Roberta Parshley. Bobbie Parshley is the most giving of people, sacrificed time with her husband so that he could help someone in need. If she ever complained, and she had the right to, I never saw it. I had the chance to live with them for a while, and I never saw a more generous person. Roberta Parshley has the most perfect soul possible in a human. She lives on an Alabama farm now around family and animals, her greatest loves. God, wait to take her sweet soul to Heaven just a little bit longer than she wants to hang out so the people around her can be so lucky.

Thank you, Bobbie, for all you gave me, much more than you know. You're the closest person to being a saint I've ever known. I love you, Bobbie.

Ron Parshley. I don't know where to start. He was my mentor, my life's best friend, my father, priest, my fellow journeyman on this path. Although I'd spent my life studying the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks, Ron opened the entire world of history to me on so many more planes, spiritually most importantly. More than just myth but the development of the soul, of God. He changed me immensely. Ronald Parshley, Lord Sylvanis, had been one of the co-founders of both the National Association of Pantheism and The Pagan Allied Network, a direct initiate from Alexander Sanders' hand. I'm so very proud to be of that line :-) The entire pagan world with miss him until we pass from this life. Freedom of Religion in the United States owes much to dedication and love of Ronald Allan Parshley. So do I. He was my most beloved cheerleader in writing. He'd had so much faith in me, he'd recommended me to a very well-known pagan author and personality for the position of co-author of her upcoming book. I'd declined, unready for such a big task. He'd be so proud to see me Greek Myth Romance. He'd be the person most excited for me. I lost Ron in 2001, about a month after 9/11. He's my life's greatest loss. He'll always be missing. I love you, Ron.

It's NO FUNNY STUFF!'s Big Day!

Wow! A year ago, I wouldn’t have believed anyone who told me I’d be involved in a novella anthology and write a Myth Romance nor a comedy. Now I’ve been asked to do another. It’s been a priceless experience. I’m so proud, my smile makes my cheeks ache.

NO FUNNY STUFF!

is the first of two tales of
Thalia, the Muse of Comedy!


Something's Rotten at the Gates of Heaven

Under conspiratorial inspiration of Olympian thrones,
Thalia, the Muse of Comedy,
sends a blessing of love and laughter to Drew Murphy,
a young man cursed to a short and miserable life.
But when her favorite messenger Daisy Sullivan
accidentally launches the magic
--wrong time, wrong place, wrong method, wrong everything!--
Thalia must force to light buried secrets
of a millennia-old family curse
and face down a most vengeful Immortal
on his own bloody stage
if she wishes to free both Drew and Daisy from an unJust fate.
Ares, the ruthless God of War,
loves only one thing as much as he loves bloodshed....
How's Thalia supposed to make THAT funny?
At least, she's wearing her best sandals!

***
$3.00, less than a cup of Starbuck’s Coffee and more laughs!
What a bargain! :-)

Buy My Book!
Have you bought my book yet?
My family says I’m worth $3, but not much more.

Love, Michele

LAD holds #3 for almost 2 weeks!

My launch of Looks Are Deceiving went well. LAD held it's #3 position on Siren's Best Sellers List for nearly 2 weeks, and that really shocked me! Promotions is hard work, but when you see your book on any Best Sellers List, you want to keep it up! Siren Publishing has been very good to me.

LAD goes into print in September! I can hardly wait to HOLD a book I wrote in my hands. I'm going to take it into the book store, put it on the shelf, and take a picture of it.

So strange that the first book published wasn't Luminous Nights. I always expected that to be the Big One. It still will be. I'm trying to talk my artist-exboyfriend to do a cover for LN. He's so talented. What a brat he is! One good spanking oughtta fix his wagon.

Where is Luminous Nights's publisher? Come out, come out, wherever you are....

It's No Funny Stuff 's turn. It's been some experience working on an anthology. What a writing challenge.
a) Never wrote anything so small. 35,000 words. I'm a Big Story writer.
b) Never wrote anything that must be funny. It's about Thalia, the Greek Muse of Comedy, so it demanded some chuckles. I sure wish I were Katie McAlister! She SLAYED me with You Slay Me. If you haven't read it, do.
c) Never wrote anything that hadn't sprung from my own head. My first book was 270,000 words. That's a crazy size. It's two sequels were that big too. LAD was my smallest story at 90,000.
d) Never wrote with other writers in mind.
Whew....
Despite fears, I'm proud to be involved with The Wild Rose Press, really great people. The writers I've worked with are some of the nicest ladies you can imagine.

Right Around the Corner!

My newest release is coming up fast!
Looks Are Deceiving will blast off in less than 2 weeks. I'm excited, nervous, optimistic, and your garden-variety terrified. I can imagine the haunting feeling of having not done enough promotion is natural, even though you've done tons. There comes a time when you have to sit back in the audience and watch your kid perform in the high school play. I'm proud of how this story has evolved.

I've been placed in the board of my RWA local chapter. Most people probably intended to get onto the board. It strangely fell into my lap so I'm going to answer the knock of Opportunity. She's done me right in the past. Steve, one of my very best friends , told me, "90% of success is showing up and listening." He was so right!

Have you seen my book trailer for Looks Are Deceiving?

Looks Are Deceiving's First Review!

A review by Anna Small
author of To Tame the Wild Wind

While contemplating which brand of ketchup to buy, cash-strapped college student Elissa Baker receives a proposition by three goofy guys eager to set up their workaholic friend. The offer is too good to resist: 300 dollars to go on a blind date with Greg Moretti, whom, they assure her, is a handsome bachelor. Behind on her bills, Elissa accepts their offer, not knowing that the real reason they chose her was due to her ragtag, disheveled appearance.

Greg and the 3 “Amigos” have had a lifetime of playing jokes on each other, and Greg informs his buddies that he can fall in love with any woman, regardless of her appearance, as long as she has a brilliant mind. Little do the Amigos know that Elissa’s real beauty is hidden behind grass and dirt stains and work clothes. She appears at the classy restaurant where Greg works (turns out his wealthy family owns it) and confronts him with the stupidity and childishness of the bet. He convinces her to play along for a full month; at the end, the Amigos will award her $1,000.

Thus starts an unlikely pairing of the studious, sheltered Elissa and outgoing, devastatingly handsome Greg. As they go around town pretending to be a couple, love begins to blossom - an inconvenience to Elissa, whose sights are long-set on the FBI Academy. he resulting misunderstandings and a mysterious case of disappearing wine wraps the reader in Tampa’s seductive world of fine food, expensive wine, luxury homes, and old money.

Michele Hart has written an artful erotic romance with strong notes of suspense that leaves the reader breathless. I was drawn into the sensual world that opens up for Elissa as her love for Greg blossoms. Ms. Hart has created a page-turner that leads the reader from the underworld connections of the restaurant business to the glittering social scene of power and money, woven through with dark, sexy ribbons of desire and passion, danger and betrayal.

Looks Are Deceiving's New Stuff


Oh, I've been doing so much in preparation of

Updates on Upcoming Releases!

Looks Are Deceiving

I’ve sent in my publisher edits for Looks Are Deceiving, and I’m proud of how the story has matured through two publications.

Siren Publishing was very easy to work with, and I’m sure I’ve put LAD in the best hands. Siren was voted #1 Publisher by the 2007 Preditors & Editors Readers Poll AND Siren made 2nd Place last year. I really think LAD has landed in the top of its genre of Erotic Romantic Suspense.

Check Out Looks Are Deceiving Here!

Looks like Looks Are Deceiving's e-book release date is MAY 19th! YAY!

No Funny Stuff!
a tale of the muse of comedy!

I’ll be turning No Funny Stuff! over to my publisher in the next week or so, a few weeks early. I’m a touch nervous over it. The assignment, a short story with a theme supplied, was quite a challenge for me on so many levels, and I learned a lot, not just about writing, but comedy, human psychology and relationships, group dynamics, and the e-publishing industry. I wouldn't trade the experience.


Here's a bite of No Funny Stuff!






I've been quite blessed to be a part of the

SONG OF THE MUSES anthology, 9 Tales of the Greek Muses of Inspiration, Book III

No Funny Stuff! is due in e-book August!

SONG OF THE MUSES
comes in paperback October!

Luminous Nights awaits its moment.
