Getting there

I know it's been a little while since I wrote anything but I have some things that are going on in my life. First off I am going to a local author expo where I'll bring copies of my two novels and I'll be meeting other authors. That is in September so I'm pretty excited about that!

Second the sequel to my book From Within is scheduled for the fall. It's going very well and I'm very excited for this one. It went a completely direction which I find to be really interesting. Sometimes you just let your mind wander and I think it turned out really well.

That's basically all this happening in the writing world. I am currently working on a new novel that is sort of different then my first two. But more in line with my first one. I think I'm more into the mystery/thriller genre.

If you're a Goodreads follower you should definitely check me out. It's under Melissa Rose Bushèy. Thanks for reading and for the support!

Vacation 

I just got home from vacation with the hubby and I have real interesting ideas for my next novel or novels. I’m really excited about it!! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July as I did. I didn’t do much, I watched fireworks from the vicinity of my home. 

I just wanted to check in with everyone and let everyone know I am on Goodreads and I changed the kindle cover to my first novel Braver Than Yesterday. The paperback will remain the same. I hope everyone will check it out. 

Have a good weekend everyone!! Thanks for the support!

Why not

Writing for a living is a struggle, well for me it is. I’m trying to do it for a living and well it’s not turning out very well. Writing takes structure and words and well thought out planning. You give your life to it and what do you get in return? Nothing really, I mean yeah the desire that you wrote this piece of art and you let everyone read it. Words that pour from your soul onto a piece of paper. Some people don’t even care about it. They look at it and go eh and that’s it. I’m hoping for more then that. 
Have you ever seen Girl Boss? I want that life. The life where you don’t care what people say, you’re going to do it anyway and your way. If writing makes me happy so be it, I want to be happy! I want to be my own boss, I want to write and sell my books. I want to wake up each morning knowing that somewhere in the world there is someone reading my book. That shit makes me happy and there is no one that can tell me otherwise. So thanks to everyone who purchased my novels and to those who read it. You are the best people in this world because you’re a passionate reader and you took the time out of your busy life to read the words that I wrote! I appreciate YOU! 
Don’t take shit from anyone! You do what you want to do!

Goal

I know it’s been awhile since I wrote anything on my blog but I’m still here. My mood reflects my writing so this won’t be the most positive post. I haven’t had the ability to continue writing the sequel to my second book because I lack ambition. Hopefully I can get it back because it’s not fun being down and not able to focus. All I can think about is everything else that’s going on in my life. 

I’m trying hard to promote my book. I was so happy that my yoga studio allowed me to put my books in their boutique. When I went there last night, one was sold. I was really happy! Things like that make me really happy and in all honestly I want to make people smile and feel good. My books are on smashwords and Amazon and they’re on Goodreads. I am happy that they’re both out there but I hope one day I’ll be successful and reach my goal of becoming a full time novelist. That’s my real passion. But for right now I’ll do what I can to get it out there!

A change…

So I wanted to change my pen name for my writing. It made more sense to me because there was someone else out there that had a similar name as me. So I changed it to M. Rose BushĂ©y. I think that sounds much better anyway. I appreciate the love and support everyone is giving me through this journey I’m on. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!

A Change…

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great weekend, some of you may have a longer weekend that others but I hope you enjoy it. I also want to wish everyone a Happy Easter if you’re celebrating. 

So I wanted to let everyone know that the workshops are going pretty well with the show that I’m in. It just started so it’s all fairly new to me. 

Also I wanted to let everyone know that I decided to go a different route instead of Amazon. I took my novel off of there and decided to go with Barnes & Noble. I also changed the title to Braver Than Yesterday because it honestly it just makes more sense. I’m very excited about it so I hope everyone takes a peak at it. Thank you all for your love and support. 

Have a great day!

Feeling..

There is really no feeling like printing out your manuscript and feel the warmth in your fingertips. I start leafing through and flipping the pages and feel the air in my face. It just feels so wonderful to know that I created these words and I put them down on paper. With my second novel done I decided to make it a series. I’m very excited and super blessed to have this amazing gift. I never thought my mind would wander as much as it does. I have quite the imagination and so happy I get to toy around with ideas. Doing a series never really crossed my mind but when it did I thought eh I don’t know if I really want to do this, but as I thought about it today I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to do one.

I’m grateful for everyone here that reads my blogs and comments and likes my blogs. I feel honored to make someone’s day a little happier and brighter. I love reading blogs of inspiration–it makes me feel more amazing and it makes me feel stronger then I have before.

I want other people to know that inspiration can come in any forms. From seeing something that makes you think wow I can do that or from words that someone says. It’s a truly good feeling that there are people still left in the world that want to make YOU feel better and help you accomplish your goals. Don’t let anyone stop you! If you feel strong about something go for it and if it knocks you down, brush it off and continue on.

Thanks for reading everyone!

Proud

The weekend wasn’t that eventful, however I did audition at a theatre that’s local in my area. I was super nervous about it but I did it!! I sometimes amaze myself doing something like that. I just wanted to share that with everyone!

In other news I am nearly done my second novel and very excited about it! I can’t wait to share it with everyone! 

Hope everyone has a good rest of the weekend and if your somewhere on the other side of the world you’re probably in the middle of the night or it’s already Monday where you are. Enjoy your day/night.
