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…

LET’S ALL BE IN A BOOK FLASH MOB!!!!

It is difficult for me to tread on unknown pathways.

I mean, the ropes could be tied wrong and it is a long way down!! What if you get hurt? I just don’t…

A VERY Personal Statement by Mia Kerick “Accepting Myself”

There are thirty bags of clothing in my garage. I’m not talking about those tall, white deodorized kitchen trash bags. I’m talking about heavy-duty, “a dumpster-in-a-bag”, construction-grade trash bags, each stuffed to the top with preppy attire in slightly varied sizes. Enough white button-down collar oxford cloth shirts to outfit a (plus-sized) private girls school. No (size sixteen or eighteen) woman in the state…
