Blog Tour Guest Post + Giveaway: Never Let You Fall by Michele G. Miller


I want to thank Michele for stopping by my blog today to talk a little bit about 5 tool for writing!!! 
 So you want to write a novel?  Well if you do here are FIVE things that will come in handy as you type, type, type your way to your perfect little story.

Okay, so perhaps these are just the five tools I use when writing.

• Scrivener.   Scrivener is this amazing writing program that lets you do just about anything you

want.  There are boards to pin research, character pictures, scriptwriting tools, full screen

editing, save work in files by scene or chapters and then compile them into one manuscript.  By

far the best $40 I have ever spent! PLUS- it formats into mobi, epub, pdf for you!!

• Spotify- I can NOT write without music on in the background.  I have theme songs that I play

over and over when doing certain scenes or brainstorming.  When I don't need a certain song I

love the stations on Spotify and typically listen to the Indie station.  Hey us Indie creative types

needs to stick together ;)

• Pinterest- Yep, both a hindrance and a help.  I utilize Pinterest to search or pin visuals as I'm

writing.  I also use the google in general to search for people, places or things but it is Pinterest

that I NEED to keep those items I find all in one place.

• & Urban dictionary- Nobody wants to hear my character grumble 100 times per

page.  I am always searching out new and exciting ways to get character feeling and thoughts

out without making you sick of hearing the same word over and over!

• Facebook- My writing partners and cheerleaders are always just a click a way on FB when I get

stuck.  We maintain an open 'message' 24/7 and whenever I need them I can get them and

vice versa.  I also utilize Twitter for my chapter by chapter Beta readers (shout out to Beth and

Megan!!)  I shoot them a tweet saying "something in your mail" and they know to check my

progress and give me feedback.

So that's it.  Five things I could not live without while writing.  There are many more things I must have, like snacks, fuzzy socks, oversized sweatshirt…but these five items are tools of the trade that if you ever decide to write you might find helpful to you too.

Thanks Bookmarks, Spoilers & Happily Ever Afters for letting me stop by today! <3 Michele

Never Let You Fall

Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.”

Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her.

Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed…

As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything...

And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…

Get it here:

About the author: 
Having grown up in both the cold, quiet town of Topsham, Maine and the steamy, southern hospitality of Mobile, Alabama, Michele is something of a enigma.  She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow.  However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children’s laughter!

Her family, a doting husband and three awesome  minions, have planted their roots in the middle of Michele’s two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Never Let You Fall is Michele’s first novel and she is beyond thrilled to have finally followed up on a dream she has held for over 20 years!  God willing there will be many many more books to follow.
