I had the best time writing this book, it was my first experience with writing a complete book, going through the editing process, picking out cover art, the whole nine yards so I look back at this book very fondly.

Waking Up In Bedlam by Mia Bishop

Waking Up In Bedlam by Mia Bishop

Explore a world of myth & legends hidden within our own world. Where Elves & Fae rule from their dark and light courts, legendary hunters work to keep the balance, shifters prowl the streets at night, Arthurian myths come to life, and witches, ogres, and other mystical races work to ensure that the humans never find out what is hiding on the other side of the veil.

Ryder is a fake- and he knows it. He spends his days pretending to be a paranormal investigator and his nights entertaining groups of believers with his claims of communicating with the dead. Life is good and business is booming until the night a beautiful woman storms out of his seminar and a mysterious man drops an unexplainable case in his lap. Ryder finds out the world he thought was fake is actually real and even worse, he has become the paranormal world’s most wanted.

Jessa wants answers– and the human, Ryder, is the only one who can give them to her. She has one goal, keep him alive long enough to figure our why he has been haunting her dreams. The only problem is the more time she spends with him the more she realizes the answers she seeks are ones she isn’t ready to face.

Can either one of them accept what fate has laid out for them? Or will they fight their destiny at the cost of everyone they hold dear?

The Gateway Arch in St. Louis hides a secret opening to a fairytale world. Hidden from Rowan since childhood, it may have been where she was born, but it’s not her home.

The attraction between Luc and Rowan is instant and intense. They explore each other while unlocking the powers and abilities hidden inside Rowan. It is her destiny to kill Ulric and Luc will do all he can to see that she fulfills her role.

Waking Up In Bedlam Available Now

All of my hard work has paid off, Waking Up In Bedlam was release on November 14th! (On schedule, shocking, I know!)

Cover Art by: Something Wicked... Covers By Jamie

Cover Art by: Something Wicked… Covers By Jamie

My life has been full of chaos this month and especially this past week, I’m behind on NaNo this year, but the book launch had to become top priority. This week has been the hardest week of my life and with all of the stress at home I was ready to give up. I told Alexandra Webb (from The Self-Publishing Experiment) that I was giving up, that I couldn’t keep writing with all that was going wrong and luckily she flat out told me “No.” That I couldn’t give up on my dream even with my personal life falling apart all around me. So with her help I picked myself up by the boot-straps and did my best to fake it until I could make it. And the launch happened on schedule, I couldn’t be happier. And I have the greatest friends and support system in the world.

Life is still up in the air, things still hurt deep down, but at the end of the day I have to remind myself that regardless of what life hands me I am always a fighter. I always survive, even if I have to scratch and claw my way through the chaos until I can breathe again. Writing is my dream, sharing my stories with people is what I want to do.

So without further ado, here is my shameless promotions:

Waking Up In Bedlam by Mia Bishop

Ryder is a fake- and he knows it. He spends his days pretending to be a paranormal investigator and his nights entertaining groups of believers with his claims of communicating with the dead. Life is good and business is booming until the night a beautiful woman storms out of his seminar and a mysterious man drops an unexplainable case in his lap. Ryder finds out the world he thought was fake is actually real and even worse, he has become the paranormal world’s most wanted.

The only problem is the more time she spends with him the more she realizes the answers she seeks are ones she isn’t ready to face.

Can either one of them accept what fate has laid out for them? Or will they fight their destiny at the cost of everyone they hold dear?

Missed Opportunities

Gotta love a good ol’ fashion fuck up. That said, sometimes life gets in the way of what you had planned, you miss a deadline, an important date, miscalculate your checkbook, etc… We’ve all been there and done that. So this is mine, I was supposed to be part of a blog hop but due to power-failures which have been happening all week I missed the boat so to speak. But how can I make this negative into a positive?

Well for one, I was going to do a cover reveal and excerpt from Waking Up In Bedlam which is still in edits and I was going to give away a $10 Amazon gift card. I think that will still be my plan, no reason to not do it just because it’s not part of a planned event.

Beyond that, the only thing to do it is move on, there will be other opportunities to promote myself and get my name out there. So while it sucks that I missed it, it is another lesson learned. And I’m moving on.

So… Friday, July 26th (tomorrow), I will be doing my cover reveal and posting an excerpt from Waking Up In Bedlam and I will be having a drawing. All you have to do is comment on the post tomorrow and you are automatically entered in the drawing for a $10 Amazon Gift Card. A winner will be picked via Rafflecopter.

❤ Mia

All problems are opportunities in disguise.

All problems are opportunities in disguise.

Progress Made

Waking Up In Bedlam is getting just a little bit closer to being finished. I’ve been working on the edits for the second draft, I’ve gotten great feedback from one of my Beta Readers (still waiting for more). I made a smashwords account in anticipation of publishing my story. And I signed up for a blog hop in July, that is a big step for me. I’m hella nervous and super excited all at the same time.

Last but not least, I have my cover! I like it, it is simple and not overdone or gaudy looking. I have a pet peeve about covers that have way too much going on in them, I like simple, not plain but easy on the eyes. So I hope when my cover is revealed that people like it. *fingers crossed*

Anyways, my goal this week are:

-To finish up the edits for the second draft of Waking Up In Bedlam by the weekend so that it can go out for another round of clean ups.

-To hit a word count of 10k by Sunday on my newest WIP

-To finish my Beta Reading for my Friend Alexandra Webb by Sunday also.

 

Gonna be a busy couple of days, maybe I can buy some Z-quil and knock my husband out for 72 hours so I can get it all finished up. LOL, I kid, I kid.

Shameless Self Promotion

I have set up a separate blog to keep all of my short stories on, most of them have been written for Flash Fiction Challenges over at The Indie Writers’ Collective on Facebook. So with that being said, they are more exercises than finished pieces of work, all in an effort to get the mind working and break through any writers blocks.

I’m working as fast as I can on my first novella which I plan to self-publish as my first attempt at The Self-Publishing Experiment. Hopefully I will have more to post very soon. *fingers crossed*

The Self-Publishing Experiment- Mia Bishop & Alexandra Webb

I’m going to be joining my friend Alexandra Webb for The Self-Publishing Experiment. We are both going to be doing our best to see what it takes to make it as a self-published author. We will be journaling what works for us, what has worked for others, what backfires, and everything that turns out to be a totally misfire. We will also be interviewing any willing Self-Published authors and doing book reviews.

Stop by and check us out.
