Giveaway Reminder + I Made My First Book Teaser

There's still time to enter to win an e-book of DATING MAGGIE at Apryl Baker's Blog!

In other news...I've recently discovered Picmonkey. They make it easy to edit photos or make logos or graphics. I'm a writer with no graphic design experience. I learned about this site from a group of fellow Limitless writers. I made my logo at the top of this page. I also used a photo I took of a snowman to create a winter book teaser. Sure, I still need to practice but it's fun learning something new. And I apologize for inserting a shirtless cowboy in this winter scene...like I said...still learning.

Now if only I could find a Star Wars tie in for DATING MAGGIE promo I'd be set. Maybe I should show up at the long lines where folks are "camping out" and hand out paperbacks. I'm just spit-balling here:) I hope you all get a chance to build your own snowman sometime during or after the holidays!

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?
