National Coming Out Day 2017!

Today is National Coming Out Day 2017! It is observed annually to raise awareness of CIVIL RIGHTS for the LGBTQ Community. I’m celebrating with the Human Rights Campaign (see below) by supporting LGBTQ EQUALITY on Facebook and Twitter. I hope to do a small part in helping to create an environment in which people can live authentically. “Coming out is one of the most courageous…

What’s Goin’ On…

I’m drawn to the struggle of LGBTQ individuals. I’m not LGBTQ, myself. And none of my children or close friends have confided to me that they are LGBTQ people. I am merely an ally, with no motivation other than my strong desire that all human beings enjoy the fullest scope of human rights. The struggle of an LGBTQ person to live authentically without prejudice…

TIMMY ASHTON’s BRILLIANT ARTWORK that accompanied me to EUROPRIDE CON 2017!

    I recently returned from my first experience as a keynote speaker, which took place in Berlin, Germany, at the Euro Pride Con 2017. It was an amazing and humbling experience, and I have a lot of people to thank. Dani Elle Maas and Marc Fleischhauer, along with the awesome behind-the-scenes assistants, ran a warm and friendly, positive and educational, LGBTQ book convention….

Re release of Inclination by Mia Kerick August 10, 2017

It had been on my mind for a long time… with Inclination, the story of a devout Catholic teen, Anthony Del Vecchio, who is facing the reality of his gayness, I knew I could do better. And so at the time where my contract expired with CoolDudes Publishing, and I had the options of pulling it, improving it, or leaving it as it was,…

I keep trying to write THAT book

  This is all I wanted to say. Mia ❤

RELEASE DAY- IT COULD HAPPEN Playlist by Mia Kerick

I’ll be the first to admit it: most of my books are angsty. I write about anguish. Troubles. Torment. This is not a crime, as far as I know. I write angst because it’s what I like to read. I want to feel a character’s pain. I want to earn every single bit of my happy ending. And so, I want you, my readers,…

COVER REVEAL for IT COULD HAPPEN by Mia Kerick

Today is the official COVER REVEAL DAY for my JUNE 5th release IT COULD HAPPEN from Dreamspinner Press. It Could Happen by Mia Kerick is the M/M/M romance of three eighteen-year-old high school seniors. It is a best friends-to-lovers story. I enjoy writing stories of polyamory, and in particular, coming-of-age polyamory. The three young men in the book—Brody, Henry, and Danny—are faced with many…

I DON’T COOK

I don’t cook. Well, I did cook once. It was actually one of the things I looked forward to most when I first got married: cooking my man his dinner. Unfortunately, he wasn’t particularly enthralled by the two meals I knew how to make: Chicken Rice Casserole: chicken breasts/ cream of mushroom soup/frozen broccoli/ Minute Rice   Tuna Noodle Casserole: can of tuna/ cream…

LOVE IS WHAT I SEE

  I just wanted to pass on the rainbow joy on yet another day where TRANSGENDER EQUALITY has suffered a setback. Mia ❤  

Adult Romance with a Transgender Character in Mia Kerick’s New Release, Scarred

Today is a big day for me: It is the release day of my first novel with a crossdressing and frequently feminine-presenting character who falls under the trans* umbrella. As I struggle to deal with our new White House administration, I have grown increasingly concerned about the emotional and physical safety of transgender individuals in our society. As an author, one of my goals is…

FUN with Mia’s Homemade Memes

I’m not even slightly technically inclined, BUT, necessity IS the mother of invention, right? Not that I invented canva.com’s meme-making system, but the necessity to promote my books drove me to a frenzied trial-by-error approach to figuring out (aka inventing) how to make memes to use on social media. I credit Julia Ember with the big heads-up. THANK YOU BIG TIME, JULIA!!!! She pointed…

FAIRY TALE PLAYLIST for IN A GILDED CAGE

“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” G.K. Chesterton   Hello everybody! Many Fairy Tales that we love bring to mind music– largely thanks to Walt Disney! Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White-too many fairy tales to name- make you think of the songs that accompany…

It’s the Climb

I’ve seen a lot of other authors hit them-low points in their careers when it seems like the harder you work and the BETTER you write, the less happens to move your message and the size of your readership–your career, itself–forward. And the more you have to WAIT for a YES or a NO, and for the sometimes dreaded, but always needed, reviews, allows…

RELEASE DAY for IN A GILDED CAGE by Mia Kerick, my first LGBTQ FAIRY TALE RETELLING

Yes, it’s a Rapunzel story. And let me tell you, I did my research. Here’s a taste of what I read in my effort to strip the Disney version of Tangled down to the most basic version of the tale. It comes from an article on Flavorwire called, “The Disturbing Origins of 10 Famous Fairy Tales” by Emily Temple. Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your…

The (messy) Story of Making a Self-Published Short Read… SOL Shit Outta Luck by Momma Mia Kerick

ONCE UPON A TIME… I had some time on my hands. Every year, Mr. Mia goes on a LONG fishing trip to Chappaquiddick, an island off Martha’s Vineyard. It’s his favorite time of the year. Lots of men shuttle in and out of the house he rents, and they fish a lot at odd times of the day and night, dictated (I think) by…
