Three Wishes with M. E. Purfield

I first got to know M.E. back in April or May of 2012 (I don’t remember which) when he let Grace, the main character from Winging It!,  interview him. I’ve always felt this post was fun and funny to read, so if you haven’t seen it before, check it out.  Anyway…I thought it would be great to lend him Eugene to see what he would wish for and so I’m just going to turn it over to M.E.

I don’t believe in religion or the supernatural. So this three wishes and djinni thing could be a bunch of hoo ha. But yet I am a spiritualist (Buddhists) and feel that reincarnation is practical. And I do believe in ghosts. Yeah, I’m contradicting.

I am a writer, though. People pay to read me spout off about the truth in the form of lies and slight of hand. So for sake of argument I will believe in three wishes for this essay in hopes to reveal some truth.

Wow. Three? Really? Seems like such a horrible number. Yeah, you could pick one, even save it for a rainy day. But three? I have a hard enough time making a top five list of my favorite movies/books/songs. Also, at this time in my life, I feel so content. What could I ask for that I don’t already have? I have a great wife who I’ve been married to for over 10 years and with for 18 years. I have a seven-year-old son who’s smarter than the average bear and I have a newborn daughter who took six years to get into our lives. I’m not rich, but comfortably poor. I have a writing career that is starting to pick up. I have a good part-time job that I like going to. I’m not in debt and have my own home. I have the best cats as pets. I have all the books and movies and music I could want. And most importantly I have my depression under control so I can enjoy everything I just mentioned.

So what the freakin’ hell should I wish for?

Material objects are out. I’m just not into technology that I don’t need to get through life. Meaning, I have my laptop, television, blue ray player, etc. I don’t need a so-fast-you-will-miss-it in-a-blink cell phone or a television the size of an elephant or a car that vibrates my ass and plays satellite radio tuned in to the Tiny Tim channel. See what I mean?

Got the love of my life, etc, etc, etc.

Sure I could ask for money. It wouldn’t hurt to have some bank in case shit goes wrong. But…I would feel uncomfortable with that. Struggle shows a person’s true colors. And I like to be a rainbow when all is said and done.

So I will have to give my three wishes to the world.

1)   I wish there was no money in the world. People could just work at what they love and make things for others. No one would be denied anything to live comfortably.

2)   I wish there was no hate in people. Yes, this is hard. And in some way as each generation moves on past prejudices and discriminations hate will fade. I’m not saying they have to love everything. Just that if something is not their cup of tea then they just shrug their shoulders and say, “Okay,” and move on.

3)  You know what? The last two are major wishes. Maybe I will use the 3rd for myself. I wish to complete my collection of Black Lizard crime books from the 80s.

What do you say Eugene?

There are days I’d definitely like to return to the 80′s M.E., but I really love the fact that you’re content with your life!  And I like your wishes, too. Eugene’s always said the big ones like love and happiness are the hardest to grant, but I’m sure he’ll give it his best.

SURLY GIRL by ME PurfieldAs for my wish today…I hope you’ll show M.E. some love and check out his newest release SURLY GIRLY (Miki Radicci Book 4)! Here’s all the on-line places you can find it (and him) hanging out.

Three Wishes with Mary Waibel

‘Tis the season to be jolly?  Baking?

Well, yes, but on the blog it’s also the season to be wishing. Today, it’s Mary Waibel and I really enjoyed her original wishes. Hope you do, too!

I stumbled upon Shel’s Three Wishes through fellow author Kai Strand. After reading her wish list (which you can read here) I sat and thought about my own wish but on the blog list. Like Kai, I wish I could cure diseases and eat whatever I want (and not have to exercise), but I think we all would make those wishes. So, I thought about what I would wish for for me, and here’s what I came up with.

More time in a day. There never seems to be enough time to do all I want, and inevitably something doesn’t get done. If I could have a few more hours in a day, I could spend time with my family, work, write, clean my house, and read/watch TV all in one day.  (Yes, my cleaning and TV viewing are really behind!) So, genie I wish for more hours in a day.

Escape reality. I love it when a book takes me away from the real world and transports me somewhere else with new people I’d love to have as friends, whose stories I want to read over and over just to be with them again.  I’d love to know one of my books allowed a reader to have this same experience. Genie, I wish that my books will allow my readers to escape reality.

A never-ending well. Every night, when I lay down to sleep, I think about the stories I’m working on, and the ones I’m waiting to start. Sometimes, new stories or characters come to mind and I excitedly think about where they could lead. With all the ideas that float around, and characters my mind creates, I know I have a well of stories inside me. Genie, for my final wish, I wish to never run out of stories to tell.

Charmed_Memories_Eugene is working on wishes one and three, but I suspect Mary is well on her way with her second wish. Here’s a little bit about her book Charmed Memories:

Prince Trevor has always placed duty to his kingdom above the desires of his own heart. But when his betrothed is lost at sea, he finds himself torn between honor and love. After four years of searching for the missing princess, he begins to secretly long for Lady Bri, the Woodland Guide he works with each day. But the law says he must marry a princess, and Bri is barely a noble.
When Trevor learns that Bri was shipwrecked at the same time and place as the princess, he begins to believe he has finally found his bride-to-be. But his happiness is short lived. Bri has no memory of her past, and the princess wasn’t the only girl who disappeared from the ship. Desperate to prove Bri is his princess, Trevor unwittingly places the two of them in grave danger. Buried in Bri’s memories are deadly secrets someone wants kept from the light of day, and learning who she is may cost more than either is willing to pay.
It’s available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and MuseItUp Publishing

Three Wishes with Kristina Miranda

Kristina has been a friend and an early reader of my work for years. In fact, she was one of the first people introduced to Eugene, the genie in My Wishful Thinking. So, I’m thrilled to have her on my blog and hope her wishes come true.

Skipping over the wishes we’d all (hopefully) make to cure the world of all that ails it, I’ll move on to three completely frivolous wishes.

1)      I’d wish to be fluent in every language.

2)      I’d take the perfect trip with my sister that would start with three days in New York City. Then we’d hop on a plane to Europe where we would be free to stay wherever we wanted, whether a quaint cottage or a medieval castle, and explore to our hearts’ content. We’d spend a few days in our favorite spots and write.

3)      I’d fly my husband and two children to England to join the trip. I’d take our son to watch his favorite English soccer team play at their home stadium, and my daughter to meet her favorite British boy band, One Direction.

Now that I’ve thought of those wishes, I feel like making modified versions of them come true, without a genie! (Like learn to be conversational in at least one more foreign language, and to save for a trip!) But a serious wish, or dream, that always lives in my heart is this: That I will grow as a writer and uplift as many girls as I can, in some small way.  : )

Perfume PrincessHurray for travel and touching readers! And now for my wishes…

You may not know this, but Kristina has recently debuted with her novel Perfume Princess. It’s one of the sweetest stories I’ve read in a while and I hope you’ll head here to check it out!

Also, My Wishful Thinking has just started a Kindle Countdown Deal, so it’ll be 99 cents for the next few days.

Finally, I’m wishing those of you in the U.S. a Happy Thanksgiving and for those of you elsewhere a happy weekend.

Three Wishes with Shana Norris

Today Shana Norris is calling upon the genie from My Wishful Thinking. He’s out of his bottle and helping authors to fulfill their dreams. So, let’s see what would make Shana happy…

I’ve been thinking hard about what I would wish for if I had three wishes. My first instinct is to say “I wish for world peace!” and I do, but doesn’t everyone? (Or at least most people do, I hope.) But let’s say there are rules about the wishes, such as you can’t wish for things like world peace. So what would I wish for instead?

1. A big piece of land with a little tiny house. My husband and I have been talking about this lately. We’ve been reading about the micro-housing trend–we’re talking houses less than 500 square feet–and our dream is to have one of these tiny houses on several acres where we could have chickens and goats and pigs running around. We’re very much country people!

2. Having one of my books made into a movie with a big red carpet premiere. Because it would be fun to have it happen just one time. I won’t be greedy and say I want all my books turned into huge movies, just one would be enough. Then I could show up in a limo, wearing a designer dress I can’t afford, and all the paparazzi would be shouting my name. Move over, J.K. Rowling!

3. All the Lindor Truffles I could eat. Because I love those things. I get them every year in my Christmas stocking and they are just so good. They melt in your mouth and…mmm! Love them. So my last wish would be for a whole truckload of Lindor Truffles.

the rules of you and meMmmmm… Lindor Truffles. And, how funny Kai Strand wished for a movie, too. Euguene is geeky, but effective and I’m sure he’s on it!

While we’re making wishes I have one for Shana, and one for me, and one for other authors.

For Shana: I’ve read quite a few of Shana’s books and my favorite so far is The Rules of You and Me. It’s an awesome read!  She’s reduced the price to 99 cents for a limited time, and, let me tell you, that is too good to pass up—shoot it’s less than Lindor Truffles. So, I think you should grab it at Amazon or Barnes and Noble while you can.  

For me: Dolphin Girl will be participating in a Kindle Countdown Deal. This is the new promotion at Amazon where the clock ticks down how much longer the book is available at the sale price. At press time of this blog, it had just started and will be available for a very limited time at 99 cents and then increase to $1.99. So if you haven’t read it yet, you might want to pick it up. Or let a friend know about the sale. Here’s where to get it. 

For other authors: You can use my genie to make three wishes. Right now I’m scheduled into December, but if you’d like to contribute a guest post that would appear on a Wednesday here’s where you can contact me.

Three Wishes with Kai Strand

My Wishful Thinking features a good-hearted, but so-last-century genie. See, his old master never really let him out of the bottle and he’s a little behind the times.  I thought: Now that he’s out of the bottle–or in his case, the bag–maybe he could help a few other authors. Today, he’ll be granting wishes for Kai Strand.

When Shel Delisle asked what my three wishes would be, the answer was much harder than I expected. I would love to cure pediatric cancer, but I would also love to eat as much pizza as I want without gaining weight or clogging my arteries. Since I have such a wide range of wishes, I thought I’d target them to my writing career. Even if I had a genie offering me three wishes for my career, I find the possibilities too broad, but here it goes.

I’ve never wanted to be famous, but I would love for my career to be successful. There are many definitions of success, but for this purpose, we are sticking with financial. I’m a wife, and mother and I want to contribute financially to the family. I don’t want to have to eat potatoes and spaghetti because I can’t afford fresh veggies and meats. I would like to go to any movie I want without having to worry if I can afford the admission price. So Genie, I wish for my writing career to contribute to a comfortable lifestyle for me and my family. In other words, I’m not asking to be a New York Times bestseller, unless that is the only way to support a modest lifestyle (while allowing me to contribute to pediatric cancer research.)

I want to change the world. One reader at a time. Without them knowing it. My books are written to entertain first and foremost. I don’t write deep thinking books. I’m not angling to change your viewpoint on politics or prejudice or principles, but I do want to expose my readers to options. Some may be obvious, others not so much. You may never meet a gnome-elf that grants you a wish, but you may have to decide how to handle bad family members and my book, The Wishing Well, could show you how to endure. You may never invent a product that makes you a media sensation, but you might have rumors spread about you and my book, Save the Lemmings, could show you how to divert bad attention to good. So Genie, I wish for my books to find the right audience. Whether it is readers who simply want to be entertained or those who might need new options in specific situations.

Finally, a movie. I would really love a movie adaptation of the Super Villain Academy series. This is the over the top fun wish – if you couldn’t tell! I would love to see these teen villains and their counterpart heroes come to life on the big screen. To see their powers in action would be so exciting! And the good verses evil theme always makes a good story line. Especially when the viewer is conflicted about whom to route for. Ideally, I’d love to have Joss Whedon produce it. So Genie, I wish for Joss Whedon to produce the movie version of my Super Villain Academy series. Genie…? Genie…?

Those are sweet wishes, Kai, and I think Eugene is working out the details! Here are some details on Kai’s books so that you can be a part of the wish fulfillment.

Beware_of_the_White_FinalBeware of the White

As is tradition, Terra learns on the Saturday past her twelfth birthday that she is a Natures Spirit. It is her legacy to serve in the peaceful underground city of Concord. Learning she is named in a prophecy and being threatened by the leader of the death tribe…that part breaks tradition.

The Trepidus are the death janitors of the Underworld, responsible for delivering fatalities with a smile and cleaning up after themselves until Blanco, recent leader of the Trepidus, decides the day of reckoning for his species is coming. He begins organizing the creatures and leads them toward an uprising. The prophecy says there is one person who can stop him. Terra.

With Spirit of Security, Frank, protecting her, Terra attempts to complete her training and discover her Spirit talents. Together, they go on a rogue investigation to learn how to defeat Blanco. In the end, it comes down to a battle of the minds. The future of Concord is at stake. Will Blanco, the older, more experienced being win? Or will Terra, the young, new Spirit earn back the peace of the city?

Three Wishes with Eileen Granfors

eileen granforsToday I have Eileen Granfors for a guest post. I met Eileen when I did a series of author interviews conducted by Grace Lightbourne, the main character in Winging It! You can read Eileen’s interview here. 

But before you go (or go and come back), stick around and read the rest of this post because Eileen will be making three wishes, and maybe, Eugene, the nerdy genie from My Wishful Thinking,  will grant them.

Only time will tell. Before we get to the wishes, here’s a little about Eileen’s newest book, The Pinata-Maker’s Daughter:

Scholarly Carmen Principia jumps into college unprepared socially. First, there’s her weird roommate. And the men she meets! Radical protester, Franco, who shares her Hispanic heritage, or frat rat Joe, who makes her laugh? Follow her adventures, some hilarious, some heartbreaking. Okay, take it away, Eileen!

When Shel and I talked about this blog post, I thought, “piece of cake.” Darn, a cliché already. But I did think it would be easy. After a few sleepless nights (I take things way too seriously), here’s my wish list:

Wish #1: Put reading books for pleasure back on the daily agenda.

My first wish is that we would once again become a nation of readers. Some of my friends and family members say they have no time to read anymore. They are so busy with Twitter, newsfeeds, and status updates in social media, they’ve crowded out reading for pleasure.

We’ll spend ten dollars on a movie (or more), but balk at the price of a book. Well, the movie is probably 90 minutes long. Most books provide three or more days of pleasure. And they can be shared, increasing their value.  Whether your choice is e-book, paperback, or library edition, a book is an investment in yourself and in society.

Wish #2: Best sellers for positive books that are not about extreme sex and violence. I am thinking about books like Caroline Leavitt’s Is This Tomorrow, Anita Diamont’s The Red Tent, and Laura Moriarty’s The Chaperone.

My second wish ties in with the first. I write positive books with moral choices. My characters rarely swear, they don’t kill people, and they don’t blow things up. What they do is look at themselves and think about how to change. Their internal struggles may also include conflicts with family members, but my characters are not action heroes, psychopaths, or members of the mob. They are as close to real people as I can make them with times of heartbreak and times of humor.

Wish #3: Study other cultures. Think about the eradication of disease and illiteracy. Join forces with active movements. What a wonderful world it could be.

Do I need a third wish? I have one more. Since people will be reading more and reading books that aren’t so flashy, maybe we could understand one another better. Reading about other cultures in places where we ourselves have not travelled would be my third wish. Let’s open up our eyes to the rest of the world. ABC news reported that one fourth of America’s liberal arts majors said in a survey their #1 employer would be Disneyland. The world we live in is not Disneyland. Why pretend? A generation ago, the Peace Corps was a popular choice for American college grads. Let’s learn about India (Jhumpa Lahirir) and Africa (Clive Cleave) and Afghanistan (Khaled Hosseini). We live in a global economy. It would help us to understand other cultures.

Thanks. I love those wishes, Eileen!

My Wishful Thinking, book reviews, and getting some things off my chest

Putting writing out into the world is a scary, scary thing.  Some people will love your work and some may hate it.  Not that long ago one- or two-star reviews could tie my stomach up in knots. It bothered me that someone had paid to read a story of mine and disliked it so much that they felt compelled to leave a horrible rating.

When I got my first low-star review, I wanted to contact the person and give them a refund. It seemed like good customer service to me, a chance to apologize and make it right. My earliest jobs were in service and the customer is always right had been ingrained into my psyche. But I decided not to do this for a couple reasons.  The first is that bookstores seem to be very fair to customers with their return policy.  But the primary reason is a cardinal rule for writers: do not engage with your reviewers, good or bad.

Eventually the sting of my first low stars wore off. I’ve been blessed with far more high-star ratings and emails from readers who truly enjoyed my work. Why spend time and energy worrying about the others? I couldn’t change it even if I wanted. The old saying about pleasing some of the people-all of the people-some of the time-all of the time had become manifest in my life. After all, there’s a reason that saying became a cliché.

All that aside, there are still reviews that bother me. Readers who misinterpret my intention, who don’t understand what I was saying–or rather, trying to say—really, really, really bother me. No one wants to be misunderstood whether you’ve taken six months of your life or six years of your life to craft the book and build a theme into it and have people come away with the exactly the opposite of what you were aiming for. Not good, not good at all.

So, I feel the need to defend or explain what I was trying to do with My Wishful Thinking, because several reviewers have complained that there are no consequences for the girls by wishing poorly.  This is simply not true.

*SPOILER ALERT* If you haven’t read the book, I’m going to get into some very specific examples so maybe you want to skip ahead or skip altogether.

First of all, it’s true that not every wish had consequences. When the girls wished for the rain to stop, climate change didn’t ensue. When they wished for a jumbo free, no cal Frostie they broke no laws about large, unhealthy beverages.

But every other wish did have a consequence, and usually not a good one.  It may not have been the outcome the reader was wishing for, but there you have it–wishing doesn’t always get you exactly what you want.

One wish/consequence I want to elaborate on, because it was mentioned specifically by one or two of the reviewers, was the girls’ shoe wish. Someone felt this was akin to stealing. First, I want to say that this is a magical world, where things materialize out of thin air, so, no, in my mind the shoes did not go *poof* from the store to Em’s home. What the girls received is a “copy” of the shoes. No shoe store, or other customer with the same size was injured in the making of the shoe wish. The result? The enormous pile of crap that the girls had to deal with.

I’m going to digress here. About a year before writing this story a friend of a friend passed away and they were tasked with handling the estate. The woman who died had been a hoarder.  I know there are reality TV shows about this, but unless you’ve actually been confronted with a home like this you have no idea. It’s truly, truly mind boggling, and is some kind of  psychological sickness. She had not just one pair of every shoe imaginable, but multiple pairs. Ten pairs of the same sneaker. Most had been worn, because the soles were dirty, but the shoes were not anywhere close to worn out. One room was literally floor to ceiling clothes. Sometimes she had bought twenty or thirty of the same shirt—five white, five yellow, three black and on and on, most of them still tagged.

Before going to her condo, my friends had told me about what they were facing, but the full impact of what they were saying did not hit home until I saw it.  It was, in a word, overwhelming. Seeing that, changed my views on having and acquiring stuff. I’ve become much more selective about purchases, and now spend a little time every day getting rid of things. This is the result of this wish. The feeling of helplessness and “what do I do with all this” that comes from an over abundance.  It may not be what was expected by readers, but the wish delivered results that the girls hadn’t anticipated.

Some of the other wishes had silly consequences. Like when Em’s new and improved boobs made it so that she couldn’t wear her favorite shirts. Certainly, this is not earth-shattering and even seems shallow, but it was an unintended result of something she hadn’t fully thought through.

Without spoiling every wish, I’ll just say that most had somewhat comical results. This book was intended to be a light commentary on wishing well. I do realize there can be dark outcomes from greed and that was my point in writing the story, but I didn’t want to write a super dark story. I’m not that kind of writer and I wouldn’t do a good job of it. I’ll leave that to the horror writers.

Still, I want to point out that there was one dark result of wanting what you want when you want it—the magician. His soul, after years of selfishness, had putrefied to the point that he was a caricature of evil.  The girls never reached that point, they’d only been wishing for a week or two, but the idea of what they could become existed in the story.  No one would want to be the magician, and so it was a cautionary tale.

One reviewer was bothered by the happy ending after all these bad wishes, but I’d like to point out that happiness only came into Lo’s life when she focused on others, rescuing Eugene because he needed rescuing, wishing for her mom. Eugene’s sacrifice and resurrection is ultimately what brought joy to her life, allegorically speaking.

Okay, so there you have it, my view of the book I wrote.

*SPOILER OVER*

I’ve been debating about writing this post for a while. Because I’m worried that it could be interpreted as engaging with reviewers. I thought and thought and thought, and then I finally decided that I just wanted to be on record about my intent.

Yes, I understand that there are consequences. There always are. That was the whole point in writing it.  And now, because I didn’t do a Music Monday post, the song sums up how I feel about this.

Music Monday — We Can Work It Out

Conflict.

It’s at the heart of every good story. It can be the main character versus nature, or society, or themselves, but often it’s shown through conflict with another character. Recently, I’ve re-immersed myself into the POV of Grace Lightbourne, the impulsive and sometimes outspoken Angel in Training from WINGING IT!  Grace seems to end up at odds with so many characters — Archangel Michael, fellow Guardian Aisha, her Dominion-roomie Faith.  But, I was writing a scene in the second book where Grace has a dispute with Mercy, and it made me uncomfortable.  So, it was time to take a break, and take a walk.

In go the ear buds, on goes Pandora, and then comes this song (which, BTW, I hadn’t heard in a long time.) It reminded me that the conflict with Grace and Mercy can be worked out, and to just go ahead and write the scene.

Tension between people who care about each other is normal and natural. In fact, it’s a lot easy to let things go when you don’t care, right?

In MY WISHFUL THINKING, two best friends, Logan and Emily, must share a genie, which inevitably leads to conflict.  In DOLPHIN GIRL Jane has conflict with her mom, but loves her with all her heart.  Both of those conflicts made the story stronger and I hope made my readers care more deeply about the outcome. So, having faced my fear of conflict, it’s back to writing the story.

Oh, and if you’re curious about the conflict between Logan and Emily in MY WISHFUL THINKING, it’s featured today over at the Free Kindle books and Tips blog.
