Special Guest: Michelle Miles

Today I have a guest who I met on twitter. We bonded over the chest of the actor that plays Captain Morgan in the commercial that I’m attaching to the end of this post.  Michelle Miles is one of the writers who has a short story in the Entangled Anthology and I asked her to come on and talk about it a little. I’ve read her story in this anthology and it is quite spectacular. The hero sounds tres divine.  Her bio in the book says she’s a lover of Victoria Holt and is a pantser- I knew I liked her for more reasons than Captain Morgan and his chest.  Without further ado, here she is:

MICHELLE:  Wrapped Up in Entangled

 First, I want to thank fellow Tweeter, Jillian Chantal, for having me here today! We share a love of Captain Morgan. The guy on the commercial. Not the booze. Well, okay, maybe the booze too.

 One of the things I love most about being a writer is giving back. I’ve been a contest coordinator for several years and I love calling those unpublished folks to tell them they’ve finaled. I’ve befriended several along the way and kept up with them. I like hearing about their successes and even when they get a rejection (because that’s still a success).

 When I was asked to be a part of the Entangled Anthology, I was ecstatic. This was a chance to give back in a different kind of way. Being able to share my story and being a part of a group of eleven authors who are all giving back to the same cause has been awesome. Cancer has claimed several of my family members, so I not only do this for breast cancer, but for all cancer.

 All the proceeds for the Entangled anthology are going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. BCRF-funded research has helped save lives and improved the quality of care and rate of survival for tens of thousands of breast cancer patients in the past decade. Their research has revealed that the “cure” is a mosaic made up of as many approaches to diagnosing, treating, preventing and surviving as there are different types of breast cancer. The anthology is also a mosaic made up of many stories donated for this worthwhile cause.

 Entangled includes ten suspense-filled paranormal stories from me as well as authors Lori Brighton, Michelle Diener, Cynthia Eden, Jennifer Estep, Misty Evans, Nancy Haddock, Liz Kreger, Dale Mayer and Edie Ramer, plus a novella by Allison Brennan. Stacia Kane contributed the foreword and the book’s formatting and cover art were also donated to the project.

 To help support BCRF, you can purchase your copy of Entangled (ebook only) from Barnes  Noble, Amazon, Smashwords, and other online retailers.

  1. I’d never seen the commercial. I have Entangled on my list to read. Right now my daughter has my Nook so have to wait for her to return it.

    Nice to get to know you Michelle.

    • Lavada- I hadn’t seen it on tv either. When Michelle tweeted it, I looked it up on the ‘net. Thank God for the ‘net.

  2. Hi, Michelle! (and hi to you, too, Jillian). What a GREAT endeavor, and so necessary. And I can see why you two bonded over this guy. Very nice! 🙂

    I was thrilled to be part of the anthology with Michelle! It’s been a fun and exciting experience.

    • I’ve read your story, too Allison- I enjoyed it.

  4. Hi ladies! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Hope you enjoy my story and all the others in the anthology. And yeah. He has a yummy chest!

    • Hey, Michelle! Happy to have you here- you think your character could send me some cupcakes??

  5. Hi Michelle!

    How great you have Entangled up today. That was such a fun project to do with everyone. It’s been a great experience!

  6. LOL on the Capt. Morgan video! I’d not seen that in a while!

    It’s such a kick knowing Michelle, and a true honor to be one of the ENTANGLED authors with her! Thanks for being a lovely hostess to all of us, Jillian!

    • Thanks for popping in, Nancy- Love your story, too!! It is a wicked cool anthology!!

  7. Hi Michelle! What a lovely interview. You are an amazing woman and writer. I’m proud to know you. 🙂

    Thank you, Jillian, for helping spread the word about Entangled and Captain Morgan. hehehe

    • AHH, Misty- thanks for coming by. I adored Sweet Demon! Lovely story.

  8. You gals are the best. Makes me feel all warm and tingly.

    I think Chloe would be glad to share her cupcakes. 😉

    • Michelle- I went to Italy this summer and the tour guide on my Venice tour had the same type package your hero had. Very disconcerting. AND LOVELY! LOL!

  9. Very, very nice. Love the video.

    Great interview, Michelle. Its a worthy cause that I was thrilled to be a part of as well. Not only do I know a number of people with breast cancer, but I’m currently going through it myself. Not a pleasant experience … believe me. Any monies raised in this project will be going to a wonderful cause.

    • good luck with your battle, Liz. I adored all the stories in this anthology and I think it’s beautiful that so many writers donated their time and talent to such a great cause.

    • Liz – HUGS! I know you’ll pull through this like a champ. 🙂

  10. Great post, ladies! And I do love the way you bonded! 🙂

    • I thought you might like him, Cindy!! You can never have enough sexy pirates.

      • Huzzah! I totally agree

  11. […] Busy Weekend Done September 19, 2011 By Michelle 2 Comments Today, I’m over Jillian Chantal’s blog, a fellow tweeter, talking about Entangled. Please stop by and say […]

  12. Oh, and cynthia. Your story with the hot alpha was awesome. I particularly loved his chest.

    • I totally have a thing for good chests. 🙂

  13. Today I read the on-line journal of my cousin who is fighting breast cancer. A lot of technical verbage with a spattering of stuff I recognized, like hair loss, nausea, etc. And I cried. She’s not that much older than me. I am so grateful that y’all did this. Thank you.

    • Prayers for your cousin and hugs for you. I wish her good luck in her battle. Thanks for coming by and taking the time to comment.

    • HUGS – I know how hard that must be watching someone you love going through that. I’m glad we could help in some small way. Thanks for coming by!

  14. That is a great cause. I can’t wait to read these stories.
    BTW – Have you ever tried Captain Morgan Burgers. They be scrumptious. 🙂

    • Nope. We don’t have those here. Is it a restaurant?

    • Those sound great! Do you have a recipe?

  15. Michelle, it’s been a pleasure to get to know you through the anthology. I love it that you and Jillian met on Twitter.

    • It was great to meet Michelle on twitter. Cynthia had told me about the anthology and then I realized I already followed both Michelle and Misty. It was pretty cool!

      • One of the great advantages of Twitter – meeting people you never would otherwise!

      • Amen to that!! Without the internet, even. What a great thing Al Gore invented, right?
