News Day

Hey everyone! Welcome to our first News Day Post of the year. For those of you who've missed this piece of information, News Day will be a weekly feature where I share information from around the blogosphere. This can be anything from cover reveals (although the space will be shared with other news bits), book releases, competitions, bloghops to anything else we think people might want to know. I'll be trying my best to gather news, but I'd love if you'd please mail me any bits you'd like to share. Contact me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com with NEWS in the subject line.

Heads-up from my blog:

Next week, I'll be making a big announcement, so please don't forget to keep an eye out.

Guest Feature on Thursdays: 

I'll be opening up Thursdays as a regular guest post feature for people in our writing blogger community to visit my blog. It's open to anyone, regardless of where they are on their publishing road. Also, I won't only be doing guest posts on Thursdays. I just thought it would be nice to have a regular posting day for all my blogging peeps to get some exposure. If you're interested, please mail me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com with Guest Post in the subject line.

Book Releases:


Raised by an overly protective wulfkin pack, Daciana leaps at the chance to venture into the human world for her one-year independence ritual. But after someone steals the endangered bear cubs she’s been assigned to protect, she must locate them or lose her job and return home in disgrace. The sexy inspector on the case isn’t making this any easier. He knows nothing of her kind, and wulfkin rules forbid relationships with humans.

Newly divorced Inspector Connell Lonescu trusts no one but himself. He’s convinced relationships are a waste of time and thinks burying himself in work will ease the pain. Yet he’s attracted to the gorgeous and mysterious Daciana, even if there’s something slightly odd about her. Can Connell learn to trust the sexy but secretive woman?

Cloaked is the prequel to Cloaked in Fur, book 1 in The Wulfkin Legacy Series. Find out how Daciana and Connell fell in love and set in motion the paramount events that forever change their lives and those around them.

Blog Fests:

Lost and Found:  Valentine's Edition - February 1st!

Do you remember  that special feeling of love found?   And who hasn't experienced the emotion of love lost?  Some of you might have even lost a love only to find that person later for another go around.

This challenge asks you to tell your fictional/non-fictional story about love -- lost or found -- in the first special Valentine's blogfest for the month of February.  

Your post can be a short fiction, an essay, poetry, or even a song--let your imagination run free.   Any genre is fair game, be it romance, historical fiction, memoir, fantasy or science fiction.   After all there are no limitations when it comes to love. There's no word limit, but common sense shows that short and sweet is the go!

Don't be left out!   Sign up to participate by adding your link to the list here or on any of the bloggers' sites mentioned above!

WEP - February Challenge: February 17th to the 19th

Most of you are familiar with WEP (Write...Edit...Publish). Yolanda Renee and Denise Covey have got it together for February and are saluting, you guessed it, Valentine's Day. 

Now some of us love Valentine's, others hate it. Our blogfest gives you a chance to write about this 'romantic' day in whichever way you wish. 

Some ideas to get your creative juices going...maybe the angst of young love waiting for a Valentine's card from a school yard crush...the outsider who misses out and sees all her/his friends getting loads of cards (not that she's/he's worried about that)...the nasty boyfriend who texted her on Valentine's Day to break up with her...or, the husband who surprises his wife with a secret Valentine's Day trip to the place of her dreams...etc etc.

Endless possibilities.

The WEP linky will go up soon on the WEP website, as well as further information for this challenge. Posts are on the third Wednesday of the challenge month. This time it's February 17 - 19. Please consider joining us for our first challenge of 2016. There is an Amazon Gift Card of $10 for the winner. Judge will be Francine Howarth, intrepid Regency Romance author.

Special Mentions:

Yesterday, I did a guest post on Beth Fred's Blog, but we got attacked by gremlins, so the post went live late. So I'd LOVE if you guys could please go give it some love. It's about how I deal with insecurities, which seems like a good subject for this time of year. 

That's it for today! Do you have any news to share for next week? Let me know!


  1. Thanks for mentioning the Lost and Found blogfest!

  2. Sweet! Looking forward to more and informative news:)

  3. I'll make it my mission to achieve something worthy of being reported as news.

  4. Hi Misha! Thanks for posting this! I missed it due to family commitments but I'm back on board now!
