New Review for CONSEQUENCES...

Yes. I broke down and entered Book Two in The PRISM contest a few months ago. Then I was pleasantly surprised to see a 5 STAR READER REVIEW on Amazon:

"I'm so glad I got this one. It was beautifully written, emotional, and hard to put down. 
This is a writer to watch!"
Thank you, Nancy Brandt!

Hi Everyone!
I've joined my good friend and paranormal author for a joint blog. All future postings will be there, so come visit when you get a chance: 

Shela Sky has sold a novella to The Wild Rose Press. It's entitled The Vampire's Touch, and if you've enjoyed Retribution! and Consequences, I'm sure you'll enjoy her author voice as much as I do! She's already gone through the edit process and is waiting for a release date. Yep. Sometimes things move really fast.

The blogspot, ParanormalPassion, will be an exciting venture. We're hoping to entice a few more authors to visit and guest blog with us. If you're interested, please email me at
Thanks ~ Mickey Flagg

The Release Date

A few weeks ago, I received an email from my editor, the fabulous Callie Lynn Wolfe. She congratulated me on completing my third and final novel in The Champion Chronicles Trilogy. I felt full of bittersweet excitement, having worked so closely with Callie since I signed with The Wild Rose Press in 2007.

I can't believe it. Almost five years! I'll forever be grateful for her guidance, patience, and support. As a new writer (definitely not a young one) the opportunity to work with the best of the best has been thrilling!

So back to the reason for this post. Like many authors gearing up for another book signing, I labored all afternoon once I had Callie's email, and created post cards to hand out. I had to get HIS SOUL TO KEEP and its stunning cover out there, right? Along with reviews for Retribution! and Consequences... I simply typed "coming soon" for Book Three, and the promo cards arrived four days ago.

There's a reason people procrastinate. I should have, I guess.

Last night, that altogether thrilling email arrived from my editor. And with a cyber drum-roll...

HIS SOUL TO KEEP releases in ebook and print on JULY 22, 2011

Remember my post about changing the blurb? Well, here's the final one:

Destiny is rewritten for Michael Malone, a mystically enhanced vampire, with an outcome so unexpected that everyone in his world is stunned - Michael most of all. Suddenly mortal, he faces challenges unlike any he has ever experienced.

Alana, his Guardian and soul mate, questions how the evil that lived within Michael was vanquished. Lukas, his human son, doesn't trust his father's heartbeat, and Michael himself has no answers.

The bonds of their love will face the greatest test of all when the ancient demon anchored within Michael for 317 years is discovered alive within an innocent human. Can Michael, Alana, and Lukas destroy the evil unleashed in order to give Michael his soul to keep?

I'll be signing Books One and Two on March 19th at the 2011 Create Something Magical Conference
hosted by Liberty States Fiction Writers. 
Time: 5:30 - 7:00 PM
Where: Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel, Rte.1 & Gill Lane, Iselin, NJ 08830

Come and meet some of New Jersey's finest authors :)

Thanks for stopping by!

The Cover

On the heels of a title change, His Soul To Keep has a cover.

So far, the blurb is as follows:

Destiny is rewritten for Michael Malone, a mystically enhanced vampire, with an outcome so unexpected that everyone in his world is stunned—Michael most of all.

“Tell me how this happened?” asks Alana, the Guardian he will always love. Lukas, his rebellious human son, is just as curious. Michael gives no explanation, believing “The why is all that matters now.”

Then, his outrage intensifies when the demon that had lived in Michael's soul for 317 years is sensed, alive and well, living within an innocent human. He'll face evil unleashed, his soul to keep. 

Thanks to the talented Angela Anderson and Rae Monet, the trilogy will end with the most stunning work of art an author could wish for. Do you agree? Stay tuned for a release date ~ Mickey

It's official: HIS SOUL TO KEEP

Okay. My editor warned me that I might have to change Book Three's title.

Did I listen? Nope.

The edit pass is done. We're ready to go to the next step.

Then the email comes.  We have to change the title of Inheritance!

At first, panic set in along with but that's the title in my head and it's written in stone! It ends the Trilogy and maybe even provides the segue for another series.

Then I thought about it. My editor and I brainstormed, coming up with every possible one-word title to fit The Champion Chronicles and a vampire on his singular road to redemption.

As expected, every title was already taken - multiple times if you scan through Amazon.

Tucking my panic away for two days at work wasn't exactly easy. I don't have the type of job where I can share information about writing a paranormal series. One sentence, however, which came to mind the first night, had me thinking. I ran it by my daughter. She liked it. I ran it by my son. He didn't...

I thought, this fit's, it sounds intriguing. I'd read the back cover, even look inside to see what the book's about. Then I realized, not a one-word grabber like Retribution! and Consequences... but still interesting, since my vampire's soul is the heart of the matter in my series.

So now, officially, The Champion Chronicles: Book Three is ~


I jumped the gun by a day and referred to book three as HIS SOUL TO KEEP in an interview with Don Smith for The Wayne Patch 
Please click on the link to read my interview while you're here :)

A new blurb is finished, and of course, any other revamping (yes, pun intended) requested will happily be tackled. But reading the ms once more, the title is perfection. 

If you're a writer, have you had to change the title of your book? Did you experience the same kind of panic? When you wrote the novel, did you have a second title waiting in the wings?

I guess the moral of the story is keep an open mind. Sometimes, change is good.  

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for a release date!
