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…

Trying to absorb the reality/ My life in 2016

This is my Facebook post from this morning. I will add to it below: I have been writing, but I will admit to having been EXTREMELY DISTRACTED by the US political landscape over the past six months. The possibility of having Donald Trump as the president of the United States of America has horrified me to the extent that I’ve been spending a great…

How PERSONAL STYLE Helps Me to Embrace my BODY

My blog post of September 20, 2015 attracted a great deal of attention and I’ve been asked to write another post about body acceptance! In today’s post, I’ve extended my discussion of body love to include the HOW TO’s in terms of changing the way you view yourself. A big part of this includes the creation of a personal style that you love–from lingerie…

I’m Guilty… of creative cursing.

Foul-O-Matic. Insult, swear, and curse word generator. It’s real. Google it. I succumbed to its lure. I confess: I was drawn in by its politically incorrect, crude, and perhaps even sleazy appeal. And I’m not proud of this lowly moment in my word-finding life. But I did it. I am guilty. Okay? So sue me. It all started with The Bearded Boob Inspector. Well,…

COME TO MY WINDOW wins Lesbian YA Rainbow Award, LOVE SPELL takes 4th place in Gay YA Fiction

Here is my Facebook post from this morning: So happy that “Come To My Window” won a Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian YA Fiction. It released last January during a time of huge turmoil, which I will not go into. I wanted to just forget all about this book, as in my mind it somehow caused my troubles. However thanks to support of good…

RELEASE DAY NOTES about CLEAN by Mia Kerick

Today is release day for my YA LGBTQ Contemporary Romance, Clean. And while there is romance, I struggle to classify Clean as STRICTLY a romance, because it is a book about social issues. In particular, it is a book about teenage substance abuse. The two high school seniors who are the main characters in Clean are not using drugs and alcohol to alleviate boredom…
