Follow my journey toward publication. Laugh, cry, point and stare-- it's all good. I'll leave a trail so that you, my fellow author, may have a straighter path to finding your own elusive publishing contract. Adventure awaits. Let's travel together...

Book News!

It's been years coming...
I've toiled and I've learned.
I've taken steps forward and steps back.
I've written and rewritten until my fingers bled on the keyboard (okay, slight exaggeration.)

But it's finally here. My book baby is going to leave the nest!

But first, here's a quick look back at my Adventures in Writing, my journey thus far. =)

Entering my first contest.

It didn't win. =)

But I was introduced to some incredible industry professionals that year.

And met some wacky writer friends.

I kept going to conferences, kept making friends.

Kept working, finaled in a major writing contest.
Believed I could do this, I was a "real" author.
Registered my publisher imprint: Orange Grove Press will be releasing books to Amazon and the world VERY VERY SOON!
You'll have to wait for another post to see my cover! But let's just say I'm in love!

Next step in the journey? Publication! And part of that is assembling a Launch Team (aka Street Team) to help me with letting people know about my books! (Yes, that is plural. Details coming in another post!) People who are dedicated to spreading news via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, blogs, Goodreads, small group studies, women's ministry groups, health club, MOPS, civic organizations, Scouts, PTA, etc., wherever you can think of.

Want to join my tribe? Just let me know--comment here, tweet me, FB me. Everyone gets a free electronic copy of my book, entrance into our special Facebook Group, and periodic drawings for prizes!

Thank you for being part of my adventure.
I truly believe the best is yet to come.

I would love to invite you now to join my mailing list. I'm afraid that I don't have much time for blogging these days, so signing up for my list ensures you'll be up to date on the latest. I only send out for "big news" like release dates, sales, freebies, and cover reveals, because I hate spam. You can sign up here:

So, hey, you might think... you gotta at least tell us what the book is about!
You're right! I do! Here is the back cover copy for
Grace in the Flames:

Three people. One God of Grace.

John Douglas thought he knew the future God had for him--raise a family and grow old with his bride, Hannah. But then a deadly house fire incinerates his faith, destroying the man he’d been.

Worship leader Jenni Dupont conquered her demons years ago and has the scars to prove it. But temptation strikes when her world is shattered, and this time she's not sure if God can carry her through.

Bar waitress April Johanson lives with the secret trauma of an abusive past. Desperate to stay off the streets of Vegas, she’ll do whatever is necessary to pay the rent.

When their lives intersect, God will ask them to do the impossible. To love Him even if…


You can also connect with me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MichelleMassaroBooks and on Twitter @MLMassaro. I'll be doing drawings and contests in those places periodically as well, so please stay connected.

Remember, if God has planted a dream in your heart, called you to a task, stay obedient! Even if it seems to take forever. God is never late.
