I now Co-host on a weekly Podcast
Oh my gosh This time last year I thought I was losing it, I had characters playing on my mind for the first time ever. I never set out to be a writer. It never even crossed my mind. I was an avid reader and that was it. Now a year later I have published my first Debut Erotica Novella “Plentiful Package” which made it to Number #2 on Amazon Hot Reads in Erotica. Only a few weeks after the Paperback came out. It was right up next to Playboy international books. OMG that’s when I was like WOW!
I think of myself as an ordinary everyday person that loves music, having fun, relaxing with good friends and of course a movie addict. If I’m not writing I am watching TV. I know I know, but watching does help inspire the emotion one needs to write. Plus I love trying to work out the plots within the movies. So I am researching in a way.
I look back and serious think I haven’t really achieved much within a year. But my friends pointed out yesterday that I have. This time last year I was discussing the latest book we had just read over a coffee and this year we discussed my next book that is coming out and the show I now co-host on a Podcast. So taking a moment to really think about it. It is pretty amazing.
We discussed my characters, what is happening in the next book. How many followers I have on Twitter, everyone liked my fan page on facebook (my good friend Celine helps run). I have written 5 of the stories (need to be tweaked and edited of course) for the Simply Breathtaking Series. Plus another story that I can’t wait to finish. I have met some wonderful people on Twitter which seems to be my new home. I am additicted to it and never thought I would feel things for people like I have known them forever. Like they are just around the corner.
That comes to my next wonderful moment. Meeting Charity Parkerson, an author who gave me a five star for my novella only a week after it came out (which I hadn’t met before) we picked up each others books around the same time and I left her a message on goodreads. I found out on my first podcast produced by From Page 2 Screen and I was Shocked. Charity read my message and said “Wow, Melissa Craig I know that name.” WTF (sorry for swearing but it was what I thought) she knew my name. Hang on a minute go back. WHAT! Yes she said I know that name. Charity was reading my Novella at the time. That moment brought a tear to my eye. You have no idea and It was all recorded on the first Melissa Craig and Charity Parkerson Show. (check out itunes)
That is the moment I really thought OMG I have written a story, I am co-hosting on a Podcast, I am writing my next novella, I have wonderful friends, I have… I am…thankful for everything and everyone that is part of my life. Who knows what is going to happen in the future. But at this moment I feel I am on cloud 9 and thankyou to everyone who believes in me. Your support and friendship is everything.
Thankyou to the universe for allowing everyone to be in my life. Mwah!
