A New Year

Posted by Angie Merriam on January 14, 2014 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Well, it's been a while since I checked in. The holidays have come and gone and I know have a new year to look forward to. 2013 wasn't one of the best years for many reasons but I have high hopes for 2014.

In August of 2013 I took all 3 Neveah books off the market and hired an editor. Probably the best decision I've made as a self published author, so far. Books 1 and 2 have sold better the past few months than in the year prior so I'm thrilled. Book 3, Breaking the Wicked is set to be...

The Great Monster

Posted by Angie Merriam on January 13, 2014 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)

She stood facing her floor to ceiling mirror. Her reflection no longer startled her. Her body had changed considerably since the great monster chose to use her body as a host. That is what she called it now, “the great monster.” No one else seemed to have the ability to give her silent tormenter a name. Doctors were baffled and she sometimes doubted her friends and family truly believ...

The Bottle

Posted by Angie Merriam on January 13, 2014 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Sometimes the darkness is too much. The light feels so far away. Her heart is heavy and her mind weary. No one knows the sadness she feels. No one understands the secrets she keeps. She longs for an escape and finds one in a bottle.

She has become a master of deception. Her face gives nothing away. Her smile remains in place and she laughs at the right times. If only she could...

Calling Readers and Indies

Posted by Angie Merriam on August 19, 2013 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)

So, I tried to do this about a year ago and was disappointed with the poor response...however I still believe this is a good idea and could be beneficial to Indie writers and fun for readers! Here's the idea:
Over on my website I have a forum section with 3 discussion areas already set up.
1. The first one is a place to promote yourself to your hearts content...talk about your books, awards, future projects, interviews, ect....the only thing I ask is that you chose another I...

Fresh

Posted by Angie Merriam on August 14, 2013 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, it has been awhile! I can't lie, I tried out a new server for my website, and well, I am back so there you go...I have been a busy bee lately. I was hosting other indie authors over on the "other" site and lost all the interviews so I am sad about that. Looks like I will start from scratch here!

I also hired an editor for the Neveah series (finally) and I gave the first one a fresh new cover! I am beyond excited about this! The editor is fantastic! The cover is beautiful! I can't...

2012

Posted by Angie Merriam on December 31, 2012 at 12:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, another year has come and gone. Thankfully the world didn't explode,gravity didn't reverse, aliens didn't attack and 12/21/12 passed by as though it had no idea "it" was the day to end all mankind. We saw superstorm Sandy hammer the East Coast and watched as, once again, Americans came together to lend a hand (or a dollar) to the victims of the storm. We felt the heartache of the senseless crimes that claimed so many lives this past year, stealing away our feeling of safety and security...

Blog Hop

Posted by Angie Merriam on December 19, 2012 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)

 

I was recently invited to participate in a "blog hop" where I answer some questions and invite others to join, in turn creating a chain of blogs. An author, Olyn Warfield, whom I recently worked with on a collaborative anthology that featured her story invited me to participate, thank you Olyn. Her story is of her Doberman named Omar Blue, his pack, and their adventures in K-9 town. If you have a love of dogs and are curious how they live when we humans are not looking, check out...

Going home

Posted by Angie Merriam on September 5, 2012 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

It seems that the past year has been less than stellar. Nothing traumatic, like a death in the family, but a series of shitty circumstances keep creeping up and stressing me out! The constant ups and downs have kept me from going home for quit  a while. It was also those ups and downs that sent me home recently.

I called the little town of Klamath Falls my home until I was 21 years old. I was born and raised there and hated it with my entire soul! The brown landscape that was void ...

Hey everyone!

Posted by Angie Merriam on July 24, 2012 at 3:50 AM Comments comments (1)

I have an idea I would like to share with my fellow Indie Authors as well as readers! Over the past year I have spent a huge amount of time promoting my book. Liking pages, joining discussions, tweeting, ect...Promoting your work is not an easy thing to do, at least not for me. I have been brain storming and this is my idea and the theory behind it.

I want to create a forum where authors can promote their work shamelessly while helping others to do the same. You post your promotion then...
