Author Spotlight: Michelle D. Argyle

For today's post I decided to spotlight one of my all time FAVORITE authors! If you know me, you know I do NOT like reading very much and it takes me forever to get through a book. WELL, this author I am going to spotlight has changed that for me. Her books are so eye catching and the stories just pull you in and you can't put that darn book down! She has a mixture of different books from fantasy to fiction which is fantastic. This author's name is Michelle D. Argyle. She offers kindle editions along with paper pack and hardcover copies which is amazing because I tend to lean more towards kindle editions because I read when I can't sleep! 

My two FAVORITE books that she has wrote thus far are CATCH which is a story about a girl who meets a guy while on vacation who can be considered kind of sketchy. This is my most favorite book. It is a quick read but so catchy and pulls you in. The next best part is you can get this book for FREE if you get the kindle edition. 

My next favorite book which I am currently reading is CINDERS which is a book about Cinderella and her life after marriage to a prince and how it isn't what she expected exactly. This book is really good and such a fun story and idea. This book is $2.99 in the kindle edition but is also available to purchase in paperback. 

With all this being said! I am going to be GIVING AWAY one of Michelle's books in paper back edition or in kindle edition. YOUR CHOICE!

Getting to know the author Michelle D. Argyle:
My name is Michelle Argyle. I publish under the name Michelle D. Argyle, and I've been writing seriously for 20 years. I have 9 published titles to my name. I write contemporary fiction and some fantasy. 

 Why did you become a writer & how did you get into it?

I started writing when I was ten years old. I remember reading some books and thinking that nobody was writing the kind of books that were in my head. To get those, I had to write them myself! I started seriously writing when I was 16 years old, and finished my first novel that same year. It didn't get published until 16 years later (after I rewrote it about 20 times!)

What is your favorite book you have written so far?

While that's kind of like asking a mother which of her many children she loves the most, I'll narrow it down and say that my favorite book I've written is If I Forget You, a story about a girl who's so bad at remembering faces and names that she falls for three different guys because she thinks they're the same guy. Sadly, this book is also my least read book, but I still love it dearly. Avery, the main character, is more like me than any other characters I've written. 

 Why do you love writing?

Sometimes I ask myself why I love writing so much. It's certainly not easy, and it often doesn't feel very satisfying because success is hard to reach in this day and age of publishing. But there's no feeling quite like finishing a novel and knowing that it's something nobody else but me could have created. Writing changes me for the better. I learn more about myself than I could in any other way, so it's definitely rewarding in that respect. When I die, I'll die knowing I left a part of me behind that other people can hold and experience for a long time to come.

What author/s inspires you?

There are several author friends of mine who have changed me in ways I can't even begin to describe. If it weren't for them, I would probably have quit writing years ago. I hate to name anyone specifically because it means I'm leaving out others, but some of the most influential authors who have continually helped and inspired me in this harsh industry are Jenn Johansson (writing under J.R. Johansson), Janci Patterson, Kathryn Purdie, and Natalie Whipple.

 Do you have any upcoming books?

I'm querying a novel right now for a literary agent, and I'm actively writing a new novel, but nothing is planned for publication at the moment.

 What is something interesting about you most people don't know? 

Most people know I love food, but many might not know that I love very strange food like peanut butter and tomato sandwiches, liver, and pretty much every kind of cheese ever made.

Product Review: Mr. Sketch- Scented Washable Markers

This post was sponsored by Mr. Sketch Scented Washable Markers as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap! I received a complimentary product to facilitate my review. So I just want to give a HUGE shout out to them and a huge thank you for sponsoring this post!

WOW, I was so excited to be able to samples these. I love anything that smells good and I love having markers on hand for all my crafts and of course for when the Nephew and Niece  come to visit! These came at the perfect time.. my sister and her family were in town! Needless to say we were all so excited for these markers. I opened them as soon as I got them from the post office and smelt every single one! By far my favorite one is the banana one. It smells HEAVENLY!! I loved all the scents they were so much fun. I also love the fact that they are washable! I mean come one.. markers leak through paper and sometimes you just can't get them off so it was great when I let the kiddos use these markers to draw some pictures.

Seth, Chloe and Nico all had such a fun time coloring with the markers especially Chloe. I love their creations that they made, so cute and they show off their personalities! 

Needless to say I give these markers a 10 out of 10! They are fantastic and smell WONDERFUL. You can find them at Walmart, Target, Staples and online at Amazon.com. They run about $7.99-$9.99 but I promise you they are well worth the money!
