Seeing LOVE with new eyes…Can YOU be that open?

One of the greatest things about being an author is that I can, through my stories, encourage readers to think about things differently. Maybe even radically differently. At the most basic, there is this: I write M/M romance. I write YA M/M romance. My goal is to have YA LGBTQ romance mainstreamed into all YA romance, which is certainly a challenge, but quite achievable….

Writing guest blog posts for the release of The Red Sheet like it was what I was born to do!!!

I have been so freaking busy. Seriously. (This is weird…it is kind of like having a REAL JOB!!!) In any case, I have been writing guest posts for blogs and review sites I am going to visit (for my release of The Red Sheet) like it was the reason God put me on Earth. In between writing guest posts, I have been doing edits…

In solidarity- re-blog of Tilda Swinton in front of the Kremlin

Tilda Swinton risked arrest waving a rainbow flag in front of the Kremlin in violation of Russia’s new homosexual propaganda bill. And she wants everyone who can to re-blog it in solidarity.  

Mia Kerick’s 5 star review of Fairy by Cody Kennedy!!

Cody Kennedy is an author I have come to admire over the past year for creating convincing YA characters who have great depth, as well as for devising I-can’t-put-down-the-book-although-it’s-2AM kinds of plots. I thoroughly enjoyed Omorphi and then Safe back in the fall of 2013, and since I was having trouble waiting for the release of Tharros, the sequel to Omorphi, I searched around…

What are readers saying about Philippe Bergeron of Out of Hiding?

Readers connected with Philippe in Out of Hiding. Here’s my proof: Sandy says: Ms Kerick does a fantastic job with her character development. We fully understand where Philippe’s pain comes from and can sympathize with him. So much so that I may have shed a tear…or two. Okay, more than two, but this poor broken man, who felt all alone, who thrived on being invisible…

Say Something

My number one writing song lately. It speaks to me…

The party’s over–it’s a new day! And I’m assigning HOMEWORK!!

Okay, so I had a great time…no, make that a FABULOUS TIME at my Facebook Party. And I will admit that although the champagne was merely “virtual”, I was pretty buzzed by the end of the event. Was this due to an adrenaline rush thanks to the need for super-speedy typing? Too much sugar in the online-rainbow-cake? Or was my buzz caused by the…

TODAY IS THE BIG DAY

Hi everybody. Today is a big day for me because it is the day I take a dive. Hopefully a pretty, graceful swan dive and not a face-planting belly flop!! January 25, 2014 from 3-5 Eastern time is Momma Mia’s BIG UNVEILING!! MY LIVE FACEBOOK EVENT. https://www.facebook.com/events/207036119485952/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming Don’t get scared. It is a rated PG 13 event, so I will not be “unveiling” anything…

My brand new surreal life…PARTY CENTRAL?

For a girl who avoids parties in her real life in the way one might avoid a nasty stomach virus, my online life has certainly turned into PARTY CENTRAL. You see, joining Facebook in the name of promoting my books has successfully managed to drag me out of my shell and has motivated me to socialize. And yes, at first I went into social…

Just call my life PARTY CENTRAL!!!

For a girl who avoids parties in my real life like a nasty stomach virus, my online life has turned into PARTY CENTRAL.

It’s a PARTY!!! Out of Hiding is released!!! Woohooo!!!

Yes, today is the official “Welcome to the World” party for two young men who have become very near and dear to my heart. Philippe Bergeron: and Dario Pereira: As you can see, neither man can keep his hungry, searching hands out of his own hair, but that will change when they finally meet and their needy hands GET BUSY in each other’s very…

never lose your faith in people

Sometimes when we question others, their feelings and motives and actions, our time and effort would really be better spent by turning that reflection in upon ourselves. This may sound like something to which many would respond by shrugging, and saying, “yeah, I knew that already, tell me something new.” But I gained this golden nugget of wisdom through personal experience, and after all,…

My Case for Being a Follower www.miakerick.com

It takes all types to make a world. It most certainly takes a number of leaders to shake things up. But please don’t ignore the essential role of the follower. (www.miakerick.com hehehe) Let’s say you have a dream. Well, most would agree, it needs to be followed. Calmly, if possible. And another common sense “following” rule of thumb: Follow your heart. I would argue…

Is it wrong?

Is it wrong that I am sitting at my breakfast bar, perspiring profusely with untainted glee? Nobody announced a wedding engagement… Nobody is having a baby… My kids still don’t put away their laundry without being begged… I still need to lose a few (hmmm) pounds to fit comfortably into my jeans… But I went on Facebook five minutes ago, and I saw this:

Just a taste of my current WIP, Random Acts

  Here is chapter two of what-Mia-has-been-up to! Chapter One is too…uh, I just can’t share it right now, that’s all. It will spill too much of the flavor…  (And by the way, my MC “Bradley” looks like Bradley Cooper- it makes Random Acts lots of fun to write!!)     Meeting an angel     My truck is running like shit, I thought,…
