Overwhelmed? Yeah, me too!

Hey ya'll!  Just popping in to see what's up.  It's that dreaded time of the year.  Christmas.  *shudders*  I know, I know I'm all bah humbug but I'm not a fan of Christmas.  Looking back I don't know if I ever was besides the fact I received gifts.  I used to help my parents with the lights, then one year it was "if you want the lights, you need to do them yourself".  Kind of ruined the whole idea.

This year I have three little munchkins of my own and I realize that I've not really fed them the whole Christmas spirit as I should be.  In all fairness, I had a 7yo boy, 3yo girl and a 1yo girl.  The boy is a typical "eh" kid and the girls really didn't understand. This year there has been a lot a squealing about Santa and lights and all that fun stuff.

But I just feel so overwhelmed by the gifting portion of the extravaganza.  Now, don't get me wrong, I adore giving gifts I really do. It sucks when the funds and other limitations stop you from giving what you really want, but hey that's life right?  I think my problem came from the fact that most of my family is fairly spoiled. Everyone has everything they want, and I hate buying for a need.  My boy is very eh about everything and NEVER gets excited.  The most excitement you get out of him is when he flashes his cute little dimples.  My girls love everything, but then fight if there isn't two of everything.  *sigh*

And the crowds! Oy vey! I do all my shopping online.  I refuse to go anywhere other then the grocery store during the month of December.

On an up note, I finished writing book two in my series by Bottom Drawer Publishing!  Check out some of their other books by checking out their site.

If you guys are on Instagram I'm @morgemerson and you can see my stuff here, I take a lot of photos of my silly kids.  You've been warned.

And if you are on Tumblr ( which I LOVE ) my blog is here.  There you will see evidence of my love for all things Loki from Avengers and the man who plays him.  Oh, and I love geeky things and gothic things.  Weird I know!

I'll update when I have news to share for my first book!

Keep smiling!

Winner winner chicken dinner!

Well, not really but you get the idea!  The winner of the $10 GC to any ebook retailer is..... ( drum roll ).....


Woot! I'll email you!

Thank you to all of those who commented and offered up advice! ( BTW, winner was picked using )

I have been trying to add a progress bar on the page so that my word count is shown for each new book I am working on.  Problem is that HTML and codes seem to be outside my grasp of understanding.  Therefore, I shall have to research and figure it out before I throw my laptop across the room.

As of right now I am a little over 9200 words into book two of my "Moonlight Lovers" series.  That might change so don't quote me yet!

As soon as that is done I need to dive into book three! The plan is to have them release one month after another.  Of course I'll make sure to update as soon as I get release dates.

Next post I'll post some of my favorites songs to listen to while writing.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!

HELP! I'm a virgin.....

OK, not really.  But I am when it comes to blogging and websites and all this cool stuff that people use to promote themselves.  I am on Twitter, but in more of a stalker kind of way not in an actively talking to myself kind of way.  And I am on Facebook a lot in various groups and posting half naked men. I knew that would get your attention.

Point being, I'm going to be releasing the first of three novellas in a series.  In case you didn't know it's my first release EVER! I'm way excited and really want to be successful.  That's why I need your help!

Other than giveaways, why do you read blogs?  What draws you to a blog?  Is it smutty pictures, or excerpts or just to find out about the author?  I need ideas! Oh, and what turns you off?

So here is my very first giveaway, in my very first blog post! Wow, I really do feel like a virgin again.  Leave a comment with an idea what I can do to be awesome and make my blog awesome and I'll randomly select a winner for a $10 GC to whatever ebook retailer you'd prefer. I'll draw the winner on Sunday at midnight.
