An author regroups.

Posted on

Rosanna Leo is one of my favorite authors, BECAUSE she writes the stories that speak to her heart. Her novels speak to me, because her heroines are women I would want as friends. They are independent, strong, intelligent, confident, nerdy and adoringly unaware of their own sexiness. Her heroes are pantydroppingly strong, sexy, intelligent and unafraid to be challenged by their women. And, the stories themselves are hot, smexy, at times bittersweet and poignant, but ALWAYS entertaining.

Additionally, most of her characters are women and men. OVER 30…..GASP!! They have life experience, baggage, and yes, continue to be sexual beings. Rosanna writes about women like herself. Women like me. We NEED her voice in the contemporary and paranormal erotic romance community.

So, if you have not read her books, please march on over to Amazon and download them. They are perfect for an afternoon stuck in carline, a stormy day at home, or a pamper-me day at the spa.

I’ve been wanting to write this post for some time. Not to air my dirty laundry, but because I’m a believer in the philosophy “in with the good, out with the bad.” Although I consider myself a positive person, I feel it’s important to acknowledge the bad stuff, get it out there, and move on. So this is me, getting it out there in the hopes of leaving it behind.

2015 was a disappointment for me, in terms of writing success and parts of my personal life. There. I’ve acknowledged it.

Surprised? After all, I had four releases in 2015. Count ’em. Four novels.

It was also a year in which my sales dropped considerably. When I do the math, it’s not encouraging. Of those four books, I was convinced three of them would have done well. These were books that spoke to my heart, perhaps more than others have…

      The feeling is mutual, Rosanna! As Casey Kasem would say, “keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.”

    Thanks for sharing, Michelle, great post. As an author who has had to put writing on the back burner for a while to deal with kids braces, their education, life. Rosanna’s post is timely and poignant. I will keep reaching for the stars though xx

        How about we look out for each other and any others that need a look out 🙂

        I like that idea – shared support, encouragement and adult beverages to celebrate and/or drown our sorrows. ❤
