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.
Sign up for my newsletter to keep up with the latest and feel free to contact me anytime!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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: email@example.com. 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!

I can’t believe I’m back so soon! I also can’t believe I almost spelled ‘August’ wrong. For being a writer, sometimes I can’t spell and occasionally, my reading isn’t so great either. I recently was at a pub and glanced at the menu and told the waitress I wanted a ‘cheddar club sandwich’ – it was actually listed as a ‘cedar club sandwich’. The waitress probably thought I was illiterate.
On a more positive note, I have two new interviews for you today! The first is with this wonderful book promotional site, Bookloads and is put together by a lovely lady, Dawn Husted. You got to check it out to learn about new authors!

So this morning I had the bright idea that I would take ‘a few moments’ of my time to create a newsletter. Long story short, I wasted my entire day researching, opting in (then opting out again) of various sites that I thought would make my life somehow easier by allowing interested parties to easily sign up for my weekly newsletter and keep everyone posted on…well, everything:-)
As it turns out, I’m a bit of a fuck up and well, now we are on to Plan B!!! From now on, I will keep things updated on the home page of my website. Someday, when I become more tech savvy or patient, I will look into doing some kind of newsletter but I feel that this will work quite sufficiently for now.
I welcome you to check in often and I’ll try to get my act together;-) Also, there’s always fun stuff on my Facebook and Twitter – not just pimping out my books but also posting all sorts of interesting and wonderful things. Oh and please join me on Goodreads and if you are so inclined, you could also become my fan!!!!
