Hey guys! Just wanted to check in and share a couple pieces of exciting news! First of all, The Rock Star of Vampires can now be found on iTunes! I want to thank the good people at Apple, as well as iUniverse, for working out a few kinks to make this situation possible.
My second piece of news is regarding my fourth book, which will be a follow up to The Rock Star of Vampires. Edits are almost done, the cover is picked out (will post as soon as I have the final version) and today I would like to announce the title.
Her Name is Mariah
Those who have read my last book will be familiar with the character Mariah Nichols and I’ve been told, people are anxious to see what happens next!! I can’t wait to share it with you:-)

I have some exciting news! Earlier this morning, I was able to retrieve some of my first book reviews that were posted on my original website. I thought the document was lost, so you can imagine my surprise to stumble across this information:-) I want to share a few of them with you:
Nadine – ‘Fire was so well written! The details were there exactly when needed. I could imagine everything so vividly. The story was intense and so interesting I had a hard time putting down the book. I read it until my eyes got dry! When I was at the end, I just wanted to keep reading and was hoping for another book to continue this one and now there is one. I read the first Chapter and can`t wait to read the rest. BTW the sensual scenes made me hot!!! Thank you MIMA for the excellent entertainment and information because this book was also very well documented.’
Maxine – ‘If you’ve never taken a day off work to complete reading a book, then you’ve never read A Spark Before the Fire!! I have not found myself engrossed so deeply in a book since the release of Fire. My world disappears, and Jimmy’s springs before me. Not one detail is left out, yet a lot of “didn’t see that coming” surprise moments spring up. A must read for everyone. Kudos to Mima. Yet again, you have caught and kept my focus on your words. Keep up the great work.’

Great news! My next book – The Rock Star of Vampires - is out!!! I’m excited to be able to show you the new cover and synopsis. My good friend, Mitchell Whitlock collaborated with me on the synopsis and I think it rocks!!!!
Did Hollywood get it wrong?
A year after transforming into a mortal vampire, Ava Lilith continues to have a lackluster life. The new dietary requirements and the intensifying of her senses aside, she continues to face unhappiness rather than the glamorous and provocative lifestyle that television and movies would suggest.
She then learns of an underground society of immortal vampires, led by the mysterious ‘rock star of vampires’. Cloaked in shadow, this Immortal sect controls the major powers of the world – from business and finance to science and politics – all manipulated for personal gain and to keep their existence concealed.
Ava finds herself drawn to this secret world where she could live forever and pursue all her dreams. But what will she lose, in order to gain immortality?
Warning – contains graphic content – like really graphic content.
One last thing, check out my latest interview with Melissa Holden!

So is everyone watching the Olympics? Yeah….me neither. But hey, I’m editing my next book, so I have a great excuse! The only thing I’m watching these days, is the final season of Breaking Bad! Now that is fantastic writing!
As I said, I’m in the process of publishing my next book. I’m pouring over the pages and obsessing about every word, like any crazy artist does before releasing their work for the world to see:-)
I can’t wait to unveil the cover in the upcoming weeks as well as tell you the title, but a girl has to have a few secrets. I will tell you this much – it is about VAMPIRES!! Keep up to date by signing up to my newsletter! Any ideas for my newsletter or website (I’m working on the latter!) please feel free to email me! Keep warm and keep in touch – Mima

Happy New Year! Well, we made it through all the craziness of the holiday season and now it’s time to get down to business!
First of all, I wanted to tell you that I have updated both my blogs, if you want to take a peak. My personal blog, The Truth and the Dark Side was updated just yesterday and my writing blog, Mima on Fire was updated in the last couple of weeks. Take a quick browse through and see if any topics interest you. Feel free to comment and share! And to keep up on all the latest blogs, news or contest, be sure to sign up for my newsletter! And don’t worry about getting bombarded from Mima on Fire emails cause I am doing well if I get one out once a week!
Okay so now it’s time for my big news! I am in the process of publishing my third book! It should be ready to roll in the next few months. I will continue to update this site and as always, my newsletter will be pretty consistent.
Try to keep warm! Peace out.

Baby, it’s cold outside!
Brrr…..I’m not loving this crazy winter stuff. After living in Vancouver, BC for three years, my body just isn’t prepared for these chilly days! I guess there is no turning back now, winter has arrived!
And with December comes Christmas shopping! Don’t know what to buy for the book lover in your family? Anyone on your list who is a nostalgic for the 90s? Perhaps your best friend is a music lover? I have a couple of great books that you can find anywhere online or can be ordered in by your local bookstore! Check them out here!
In the meanwhile, I have a new blog to share with you. This time around, I’m talking about bullying – and it’s not just for the kids! As a society, we seem shocked when kids bully one another and yet, don’t adults do it as well in the form of verbal attacks, gossip and well…..turn on the television sometimes, especially to a reality show.
Check it out and hope you have a great holiday season. Don’t let it stress you out and if it does, my advice is to grab some eggnog and introduce yourself to my friend, Captain Morgan. He’s a lovely man.

Hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween! I stayed in, handed out treats to some adorable, little people then watched Will Arnett on The Millers followed by Michael J. Fox – hey, you gotta support our Canadian boys!
So, along with finishing the last few chapters of my next book, I also attempted (once again!) to start a newsletter. I’m sure it is a simple process to all those computer savvy people out there but to me, it was a bit of a learning curve. I invite you to sign up to get my latest blogs, news and of course, updates on my next book! I promise you, I won’t fill out your inbox with useless crap but I will keep you up to date on the latest.
Have a great November (I refuse to call it ‘Movember’ – it’s a great cause but quite honestly, mustaches creep me out:-) and don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter!!!

Brrr……it’s getting cold outside! Great time to catch up on some work, such as writing blogs and doing more editing on my latest manuscript! I also had an opportunity to stop by a local museum to check out some cool things, including this typewriter. Can you imagine banging out a book on this beast?
Speaking of which, I am well into the editing involved with my latest book. Although I hate editing, it’s definitely wonderful to see the end results. I also have new posts in both my writing and personal blog. Catch up on all the news and send me a shout out on my Twitter, Facebook or email me at email@example.com. Halloween is about to make it’s spooky arrival and I may even dress up! If I do, I will post some pictures in the future. Happy October!!!! Keep reading.

I apologize for not updating my website recently but it has been a very hectic month. In fact, you can learn all about it in my latest blog! Now that things have calmed down, I’m hoping to put more time and attention on my writing.
Speaking of my writing, I am still working on edits for my next book, along with searching for an agent. It’s a lot of work but definitely well worth it and the more I review my manuscript, the happier I am with the results! I’m very excited about my next book and can’t wait for everyone to read it.
Happy October and remember, you can always contact me with questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
September 1, 2013
Wow! It’s September 1st! Can you believe it? The summer is coming to an end, school is about to start again and a new television season awaits us.
Meanwhile, I’m doing edits on my latest manuscript and writing notes for a future project. I’m also exploring various options including finding an agent; but at this point, I have a bit of a wait and see attitude. Agent or no agent, I plan to have another book out in 2014. And it’s going to be HOT.
I have lots of fun things planned for the fall including video updates, surveys and I’m thinking about starting an advice section. Any thoughts?
Any questions, comments or ideas just sent me at email at email@example.com If you have any writing or publishing questions, I will address them on my homepage in the future.

So here’s the news! I’m currently in the process of moving from west to east! Tried the western living thing and it’s not really for me and as my friend Nadine used to say, ‘I’m heading out for a new adventure’. So in between packing, cleaning and killing the fruit flies that invaded my home, I took the time to write a new blog about coloring outside the lines.
Do you color outside the lines?
OH and if you wish to contact me, you may do so at my new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in touch! In the next update, I am hoping to add a survey. And maybe I will do my next update in a video format. Anything could happen, so check in and check in often.
Have a fun end of summer week!
