The Infamous Muse…

The muse. Sometimes it sings to you, sometimes it whispers. Sometimes it’s silent. Sometimes it hits you like a ton of bricks.

Click here to watch a video of me explaining one of the funniest or oddest (depends on your perspective) moments a muse hit me. 😀

So what was one of your odd or funny moments a story idea hit?

What REALLY Happens When You Click the “BUY IT NOW” Button On a Book?

Every time you click that ‘Buy Now’ button, ‘Read For Free’ button’ or ‘PreOrder Now’ button — whether your at Amazon, iBooks, B&N, Kobo or wherever you purchase your books — you’re helping an author’s dreams come true. You might not realize it when you click it, but that is exactly what happens. Every. Single. Time.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank each and every one of you. You have made more than one of my dreams come true and all you had to do was click a wee little button.

The most recent dream you helped me — along with Kathryn Le Veque, Christi Caldwell, Cynthia Wright, Eva Devon and Eliza Knight — accomplish was making the USA Today Best Sellers List. With Dreams Only Of You is making a lot of dreams come true!11659551_939260139450682_2630922266083120639_n

I am eternally grateful to you, to all of you.

No matter the author, no matter the book, every click, every turn of the page you do helps one more author attain a goal and get closer to fulfilling a dream. So in reality, you’re part of something awesome, something spectacular, tangible or intangible.

Know my heart and know that I am humbled by your kind words and encouragement. Know my heart and know that I appreciate each and every one of you. Know my heart and know that I am grateful. I would not be where I am today were it not for all of you.

With gratitude,

Suzan

WE DID IT!!!

Yesterday afternoon, I was trying to sneak in a nap. Yes, I do that sometimes.

My phone is always on silent, especially when I’m writing. I glanced over and saw I had a call from a CA number. I assumed it was a telemarketer and ignored it. I glanced at it again a few minutes later and realized my phone was blowing up with numerous voicemail messages, texts, and PM’s. My initial thought was that someone had died.

I checked the first message. It was from the sweet, soft spoken, and amazingly talented author, Cynthia Wright. “Suzan, I’m not sure if you’ve heard yet, but we made the USA Today Best Sellers List!”

Hand to God, I started jumping around the room, squeeing like I’d just won the lottery!

The next voicemail was from my sister from another mister, the divine and beautiful author, Kathryn Le Veque. One long AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! It was a good thing I heard Cynthia’s voicemail first or else I would have called 911 and told them my friend Kathryn was being attacked! lol

Our novel With Dreams Only Of You – The Legend of the Theodosia Sword hit the USA Today Best Sellers List.

This is the first time I’ve ever made that list. It’s a dream I’ve been keeping closely guarded since publishing my first novel in December of 2011, one of those secret dreams I was always afraid to say out loud for fear someone would scoff or I’d sound vain and egotistical.

But it has finally happened!!

Together with Kathryn Le Veque, Christi Caldwell, Cynthia Wright, Eliza Knight, and Eva Devon, we wrote a multi-genre collection unlike any other historical romance collection. This is not a bundle of past work, it is a collection of brand new stories that begins with the origins of the Theodosia Sword in ancient Rome and travels through centuries until we end up in contemporary times. Each of us took an era and wrote our individual stories. And we had a blast doing it!

Roman Scotland – The origins of the Theodosia Sword.
Medieval England – The legend begins.
The Scottish Highlands – The legend takes a twist.
Tudor England – A new dimension to the legend.
Georgian Era – The legend upon the high seas.
Regency England – The legend has new life.
Contemporary Times – The legend concludes.

I want to thank these exceedingly talented women for allowing me to be a part of the collection (even if we hadn’t made the USA Today Best Sellers List) I’d still be just as happy and proud to be a part of this collaboration.

I also want to thank our readers for helping to make yet one more dream of mine come true. I believe I can speak for Kathryn, Cynthia, Christi, Eliza and Devon when I say we are grateful to all of our amazing readers.

Now I’m off to go buy up every copy of the paper that I can get my hands on!

With love and gratitude,

Suzan
