This 5 Star Amazon Review Warmed My Heart!

"Dating Maggie" is a witty, sweet, romantic love story, that will remind you of what it was like to feel young again and so full of hope and perseverance. Maggie's story was hilariously written and charming, with a modern and honest depiction of what it's like being in the dating world today, and really out there trying to find yourself. I loved the author's writing style and will definitely look forward to reading another book from her in the near future. 

I'm so thrilled to see that readers are enjoying my book! And I'm super grateful when anyone takes the time to review it. Now that I'm a novelist, I try to be more diligent myself about reviewing the books I've read. It didn't really occur to me in the past. From what I gather, they can help new authors emerge from the heap in the mysterious over-crowded book world that is Amazon. 

See the post below if you'd like a chance to win a paperback of Dating Maggie. The giveaway ends November 25, 2015.

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?
