Music is such a huge part of my life. I’ve been making mixtapes and soundtracks since I figured out how. And my writing is heavily influenced by music.Read More
For the past couple of months I have been working on my branding. I am getting myself ready to publish a short story at the end of September and I really want to succeed. So this is a little of my branding story.Read More
I am getting my author website up and running. It's a little scary. There are a lot of things I don't know technology-wise, but I'm confident I'll have it all figured out soon.Read More
I am a member of a few writing groups on Facebook. I am usually lurking around the edges, reading things quietly and riling at this thing or that or rolling my eyes at others, feeling the pain in my heart for some lost souls....Read More
I am so super excited that I have an up and running website!
I am sitting with my son doing homework and itching to play around with plug-ins. One of my kindergarteners is working on writing letters correctly. The other one is playing Minecraft. There's a pot roast in the slow cooker. I should be at least attempting to clean house so it looks like I did something today besides being a child taxi, but I'm just so excited. I want everything to be good. I want my readers to find my website and buy my book and think I'm awesome and my writing speaks to them....
It's all just so overwhelming. Starting from scratch is hard. Figuring everything out on your own is hard. I wish I wasn't so antisocial and had friends to make my webpages for me.
There are blog posts everywhere that give basics for websites and blogging, it just takes work. So if you're in this same boat, don't get discouraged.
Hi! I'm new here.
Right now I am writing a message to my four subscribers (hi guys!), and not entirely sure what I should write to introduce myself.
My name is Mercedes Siler. I have red hair and brown eyes, I'm 5'8" and can stand to get more active. I have three kids and a husband, and a really loud guinea pig that begs for carrots every time I walk in the room or open the refrigerator door.
I write New Adult Fiction/Romance. My stories are steamy and peppered with only the best, sailor-like cussing. My dialogue is en pointe, only the best real talk for my characters. Their struggle is real but their endings are forever happy. I write only what I believe in.
I hope that you'll enjoy my blogs, like my social media pages and subscribe to my newsletter where you can get the first two chapters of my Debut novel Chasing Stars before anyone else.
