It makes me smile when someone I've never met likes my page, or of course when I read a nice review from a complete stranger. 
I love that although we never met, you've read what I have written and get it. Not everyone will, I understand that, but those that do, thank you. It makes me feel less crazy.

Next Step For Me.

It's still a rough draft, but I'm coming close to finishing my new book.  Through all of it, my biggest problem so far is that I have no idea what I'm going to call it.  I think I might hold off until after I write the second book before I decide.  Have the book names connect in some way.  Just an idea.  Did I mention that I'm going to wait until I'm almost done with the whole story before I release any of it?  No, I don't think I did.  Well, that's my plan.  There is definitely going to be two, but if I stay focused I'll be giving you another trilogy.  Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted.

Writing Update

I was working on a follow up book to Dreamless and suddenly a whole new idea came to me. Something I didn't think I could wait to do.  So, I'm working on something new.  What I'm doing...I can't tell you...yet. When it's all said and done, you will be pleasantly surprised.  I won't give a date for my next book, or maybe it's books, because I'm really enjoying writing this story and I don't want to rush it.  I want it to be perfect.  It might be one book (probably not) might be may even turn into another trilogy.  Time will tell, but I'm knocking it out.  Be patient and it will be worth the wait.

What I've been up to

I know I've been slacking a little on keeping you all up to date on my writing, but things have been a little crazy on the home front. I will always put my family above all else and I'm sure you understand that. I work a full time job as well, so that sucks the life out of me sometimes, but through it all I understand this...

Life has always had it's ups and downs for all of us and at the end of the day one up and can erase or help you forget the downs. That one up can put a contagious smile on your face that will brighten not only your day, but others around you and knock that little demon off your shoulder that's been trying to fight his/her way for control.

My up right now is that my niece will be bringing a beautiful little girl into the world tomorrow, unless she's stubborn like the rest of us Ruddy clan and hangs out until Tuesday, and I couldn't be happier. If you only knew her you would understand my excitement because she is a strong, beautiful woman who is going to be an amazing mother. 

I'll be writing again soon because the story is already playing out in my head, but in the mean time I'm getting ready for a blog tour. I'll keep you posted on that. I just had a blogger read the trilogy and she loved it and will be posting her review on 8 Oct. I'll share it with you all when it's out. 

Also, since I'm babbling, if you are a writer and someone asks to read your book in return for a review...make sure that the person actually reads your genre. I had a blogger request the book and I didn't do my research. If the person mostly only reads books on history and cooking...don't expect a great review when you give her a paranormal fantasy romance. Blah to her for using me. hahahaha

This is all for now and I'll talk to you all again soon.

Damn Football!

You have got to be $hitting me! My entire relationship with my husband and his family has been me screaming "Go Rutgers!", while they screamed, "We are!" This house will be unbearable on Saturday when they meet for the first time since John and I have been together.

Why doesn't the dog get it?

Not understanding why my dog looks at me like he is the one with an issue.

I go down to the kitchen to find my husband a bit perturbed. I ask him what's wrong and he looks at the dog.  I glance around and don't see the DunkinDonuts' box anywhere.  I ask my husband how many did he buy because our son is complaining that he only ate one and wanted a second.  My husband was nice enough to tell us that it didn't matter anymore since Jackpot, our dog, knocked the box off the counter and decided to sample each one that was left.

Now, I go into the kitchen to make lunch and Jackpot is staring at me, waiting for a treat to be thrown his way (habit).  I only got one Boston Creme this morning so I'm not seeing a treat anytime in the near future for him.

"Dreamless" at Amazon

"Dreamless" at B&N

"Dreamless" at Google Play

"Dreamless" at Smashwords

In the beginning, when the battle for heaven was won and the rebellious angels were cast into hell, not every angel had a place. Those who hadn't chosen a side were sentenced to exist between the two parallels…earth. The angels who repented were called the Fallen, peaceful angles that existed amongst mankind. Those who rejected their punishment became known as the First, angels that survived by stealing souls.

Over time, a First and Fallen unite and the Protectors were born.

Eighteen year old Mira Daly had one goal, get out of Redding,WY and never look back. That was until her best friend goes missing the day before graduation. Chloe’s disappearance brings back haunting memories of her father, and through the help of some unexpected new friends, the story of who he was and what she’s meant to be unfolds.

With a living, breathing, nightmare determined to destroy her, Mira knows the only way to survive is to accept her fate and meet this demon in battle.

Those who hadn't chosen a side were sentenced to exist between the two parallels…earth. The angels who repented were called the Fallen, peaceful angles that existedamongst mankind.

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Hope everyone is doing well.  I'm thankfully back in my writing groove. Twenty chapters into my new book and still going. This will be a bit longer so it will take a little more time, but August is still looking good. Will keep you posted. Have a great 4th of July all.

Just an Update

So, I will admit that I took the last two weeks and didn't exactly work on my new book. I caught up on some reading that I wanted to do and frankly, I've just been tired. I did work on getting the trilogy into paperback so that should count for something.
Then it dawned on me that I promised a new book by August. You might ask why I would do that to myself and I'll tell you. It motivates me. My OCD personality needs it and those of you that know me personally know I thrive under pressure.. With that being said, I've had my two kickass friends go over the 12 chapters I have so far, again, to make sure that it was still on point and to make sure I can get right back into the swing of things.
So, pressure on people..."Dreamless" will rock your world NLT August.

I  write because I really do enjoy it, but nothing is more satisfying than when my mother tells me how much she loves what I've done and gets off the phone with me because I'm interrupting her and she wants to keep reading. I gave her the 3rd book on Wednesday. I can officially smile.

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Working hard on my next book. It's a paranormal suspense that will keep you guessing. I'm hoping to have it done by August, but we will see. I'll keep you all posted

Gift of Prophecy Now Available

You can find the final book in the "Gifted" Trilogy at the following sites:
 Gift of Prophecy:
B & N

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Gift of Prophecy

Regan’s arrival in Ireland may have heightened her powers, but it has also given Agrona and her minions more cause to make sure she doesn’t make it to her coronation. She battles the enemy with Jake and her friends at her side, all of them understanding that some may be lost in order to save the Tuatha people as a whole. With every attack and the harsh welcome she receives from the council, Regan is more determined than ever to prove why the deities have chosen her to be the Queen.

Although part of her has sadly accepted that she may never see her family again, it isn't until Regan is pulled into the Otherworld and handed over to Agrona that she hopes they can all survive without her.

Available on June 2nd.

Update on the final book in the "Gifted Trilogy"

22 Chapters completed for the final book. What does that mean? I'm into 23 and three chapters away from bringing the trilogy to its end. I'm getting excited again, but I'm still working on a title. "Gift of Regan Takes No $h!t" isn't going to work so I'll figure this out.

Final Book Coming Along.

So I've completed 16 chapters for the final book in the "Gifted Trilogy".  I see the light at the end of the tunnel, especially since I know where I want to go with this.  I'm almost sorry it's coming to an end, but I have more ideas starting to swirl around in this brain of mine so I'll be continuing.  I'll keep everyone posted on the progress and maybe, just maybe, I can get it done sooner than the end of June.  No promises so don't harass :}
Right now the hardest part is coming up with a title.  I hope that is the least of my worries.

Poor Scooby-Doo

I know this is random, but I am at a loss.  My son loves the new Scooby-Doo episodes.  He's watching and I'm in the other room listening.  Suddenly, I hear Fred tell Daphne that he loves her. WTF!  I could have sworn that the show was successful when they simply focused on solving mysteries, having guest appearances, like the Harlem Globetrotters(you know you all remember that one), and eating nasty food. Why or Why bring the drama of relationships into it?

Book Two "Gift of Power" Available Soon

Here it is...the cover reveal of my second book "Gift of Power". The book will be available on Kindle, Barnes and Nobel and Smashwords on the 22nd of April. In celebration of this accomplishment the first book "Gift of Sight" will be available at a discounted price. Hope you enjoy Regan's story and look forward to the final book that will be out sometime in late June or early July. Gift of Power: Regan is finally with the man of her dreams and is excited to learn that her parents are still alive. Despite declaring, to those closest to her, that she will take her position as Queen, her priority is to find them first. With a mission comes a plan, and the only way for Regan to be successful is to learn how to control her new powers, face her enemy, and do what she can to hide from her destiny a little while longer. Unfortunately, every step forward, she gets knocked back. Someone or something has been watching her and reporting every move she makes back to the council. A council who is not only eagerly awaiting her arrival in Ireland, but have apparently started to plan her future. Will Regan give up on finding her parents and being with Jake to make the council and her people happy? The truth will surprise you and the outcome might just break your heart.

Sunday, April 13, 2014

I am hoping to have my cover early this week.  I will do a cover reveal as soon as I approve it.
I'll let you in on a little secret.  The book will be available shortly after the cover reveal so get ready.

Here is the synopsis:

Regan is finally with the man of her dreams and is excited to learn that her parents are still alive.  Despite declaring to those closest to her that she will take her position as Queen, her priority is to find them first.

To be successful, she will have to learn how to control her new powers, prepare herself to face her enemy, and ignore the nagging feeling that comes with responsibility.  With a mission and a plan Regan and her Guardians are ready to take them on.

Regrettably, there appears to be a spy among them.  Someone has reported her decision back to the council and they expect her to take the throne in just a few short days.

The truth will surprise you and the outcome might just break your heart.

Saturday, April 5, 2014

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

So, to celebrate my big 4-0 I thought I'd share that I have finished writing the story for my 2nd 'Book Gift of Power' to include the 1st chapter of the final book. 
I wanted to wake up this morning knowing that I accomplished that task still in my 30s. Why? Because I plan on doing so much more in my 40s. Estimated time for the 2nd book to be available for your reading pleasue will hopefully be the end of April

Lesson 101 to self-publishing a book.

Edit...then publish. OH! I swear I knew that but the excitement shrunk my brain. 

I finally got past the excitement of writing a book and did the right thing and paid someone to edit it. This way when you say...shouldn't there have been a period or comma there? I can simply say...blame my editor. 

My wonderful Editor, who definitely gets my dry sense of humor (his is worse) liked what he called "Chick Lit" and finished editing my book, line by line by line by line. He claims I have a phobia to commas. We argued over this but he wins since he is Welsh. So although everyone so far has enjoyed my book, despite the fact that my grade in all those English classes should have been lower, it has been properly edited. 

I have currently completed 21 chapters to the 2nd book so I might just meet the deadline I put on myself, End of April. I have beta readers signed on to let me know what will need work and Geoff the Grammar Nazi will gladly make the corrections before I put it out there. 

I have submitted, for the love of God, I hope, the final edition of "Gift of Sight" on Amazon today so it will be available starting tomorrow morning. Of course Smashwords has it right now.   Since they are who I am using as a publisher, they will get the right copy in your hands, through all the right channels, within the next week or two. 

Where it will be available...Amazon, B&N, KoBo, Sony, Apple, Diesel, Flipkart, Oyster, Scribd, Page Foundry and Library Direct. When Google Play has their webpage up and running It will be available there as well. 

Thanks to everyone for being patient. I will keep you posted on the 2nd book. Erin Manbeck-Gifted Trilogy

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

So my book is now available through Amazon, Google Play, Apple, and Smashwords.  I wouldn't suggest B&N yet because the cover image hasn't appeared.  Kobo should be soon as well. Sony???? When they are ready.

Sunday, March 9, 2014

Where you can find it right now.

You will be able to find my book At Amazon. com as well as Books on Google ::)
Will keep you posted regarding other locations.  Have a Great Sunday!  Hope you turned your clocks forward're late.

What happens when you have no PATIENCE!

As a lot of you know...I have no patience.  I was so excited about getting my story out I didn't look at the bigger picture.  I wanted to give you all something that I loved and was proud of.  I gave you one, I love my story, I loved writing it, and I'm going to continue.  The second...I failed.  The excitement pulled me away from what readers like besides a great story...a well edited product.

I will never be afraid to admit my mistakes but the good thing is that this is one I can fix.  I have done the right thing and had the book edited because even with helpful eyes reviewing a book, you get so caught up in the story, you sometimes don't see those dirty grammar errors (good sign that the book is great).

So short story long, ha...I have uploaded a new version of my book on Kindle that will be available tomorrow.  I won't promote the other stores where you can find it until the corrected copy of it is in their hands as well. For those of you who already purchased it...when the new version is out Amazon says you just have to put your book in the cloud, power down your Kindle, turn it back on and hit sync.  That should give you the newest version.  If it doesn't, let them know and they will make sure you have it.

Lastly, Thank you all for the supportive words of encouragement. I am definitely working on the second book.  I will keep you all posted on when my book is available with other on line stores.  Talk to you soon.  

Monday, March 3, 2014

Where you can currently find my book:

as well as :

Here's a new book for all to check out!

What every girl wants…a manipulating boyfriend, hidden powers and to find out the only person you trust explicitly is hiding the truth.  

After witnessing her parents’ abduction when she was 13, Regan O’Rodaigh turned to the one person she could always count on, her Grandmother.  Gram teaches Regan the important things; what it takes to be strong, independent, and that you should always trust your gut.  So seven years later Regan's life seems to be on track as she is going to college, dating Sam, the campus hottie, and has the most amazing best friend, Jackpot.  If she could just manage not to be such a smart ass life would be perfect…but according to who? 

It takes a year of dating for Regan to finally realize that Sam is not her future.  The problem with that is Sam won’t let go.  He believes she is the key to him ruling in a world that Regan never knew existed.  What does Regan do when apparently nothing is what it seems and she doesn't know who to trust?  She gets ticked off, follows her gut, and gets ready to take anyone down who steps in her way.  

Jake has never been in love.  That is until he meets his newest assignment and wants nothing more than to be the man she wraps her arms, and hopefully her legs, around at the end of the day. He will protect her with every power he has but can he avoid having his heart broken in the process.
