Top 10 Reasons to Read my Book

Me in LA back in the day.
I'm an avid reader but I understand how hard it can be to take a chance on a new writer. I mean I watched Cindy Crawford's Meaningful Beauty informercial that promised me the fountain of youth but I still wouldn't let myself fork over fifty bucks.

The good news is that my book is cheaper than the fountain of youth. It's only $3.99 for the e-book. That's the same price as a grande latte.

And if you are over the age of 25 (Maggie's age) this story will take you back to that youthful time of yore. If you are younger, you will probably relate to Maggie's struggles as she pursues her dreams and tries to find love in the big city.

Still not convinced? Here are ten more reasons to read my debut novel:
 
1. There's a hot rancher in it. This list could really end here.

2. You loved Bridget Jones's Diary and hope Dating Maggie is half as entertaining.

3. Holidays are around the corner and you need a unique gift to lift a friend's spirits.

4. You know me, maybe by my "real" name and you're curious what's under the cover.

5. It's fall and you are looking for escape in the pages of this modern love story.

6. You like to be able to tell folks at parties that you are a "Patron of the Arts."

7. Getting to the sexy/humorous sex scenes sounds like fun.

8. You are a big-city dreamer just like the main character.

9. It's time to renew your license at the DMV and you need something to read while you wait.

10. Your book club needs a new story to discuss over wine.

But wait, there's more.

Bonus reason:
You live or have lived in LA or Portland, OR and enjoy reading stories that are set there.

Writing Inspiration

I just answered this reader question over at Goodreads and thought I would post my answer here as well. If you write, what inspires you? How do you get inspired to write? M.J. GreenwayThere are so many times when I'm inspired by something I've read or watched on TV. For example, I remember reading Gone Girl and yearning to be able to one day write a book that well crafted.
That said, most of the writing time isn't about inspiration, it's just about writing most days and seeing where you get. I write an outline and start with a few characters and conflicts and an idea for an ending. As days pass, more details occur to me and snowball into a full fledged story over time. Walks or bike rides can help too.
For my romantic mysteries, Sarah Starting Over and Greyson Starting Over, I wanted to write about parenting and grief and my friend urged me to write about a disabled character. Because of my childhood love of Murder She Wrote, I also wanted to try my hand and writing a mys…

Bachelor in Paradise

I admit to watching a few episodes of Bachelor in Paradise. It's purely for research purposes. Lol. I just don't understand Amanda's bad taste in men who moan loudly on camera when they kiss. And also, now I want to read Andi's book about their break-up. What is your reality show guilty pleasure?
