About Me

Well, my name is Michael. I’m not vengeance, I’m not the night, and I’m definitely not Batman; I’m a writer. Welcome to my world.

Besides my novels, I also write short stories, ranging from superhero fiction to wacky random humor. It’s a hobby. Some people play ping-pong, some people riverdance, I write.

Also, I have a dream. My dream is to one day sell 423 copies of a novel I’ve written. Why 423, you ask? Because it’s exactly one more than John Cusack’s character sold of his fictional novel in 2012. If I can beat that, I’ll be happy and content with my lot in life.

If you would like to contribute suggestions, comments, feedback, insults involving elderberries, anything, I have attached a Contact Form.

    Hello πŸ™‚ Just popped over to say thank you for subscribing to my blog, means a lot to me. How did you end up over there, can I ask?

    • Well, I saw your comment on the Hack Novelist’s blog, and I recognized your name from the NaNoWriMo Spork Room. We devotees of the Sporky Force ought to stick together. πŸ˜›

      • Miriam Joy permalink

        Ah, right! Spork room win πŸ™‚

  3. Did you actually get your novel published?

    • Well, self-published, through a print-on-demand service called CreateSpace. So it’s still shiny and new in paperback form and you can buy it, but it’s not published traditionally like through Random House or HarperCollins. Wave of the future, and all that.

  4. Hi, Michael,
    I came over from the Byronic Man and think I’ll stay.

    • Hi! I’m glad you came over, and I do hope you’ll enjoy staying around here. As Bruce Wayne said to Terry McGinnis in Batman Beyond, “Welcome to my world.” πŸ™‚

  5. That’s pretty funny to set a goal that surpasses a fictional character played by John Cusack. But hey I like John Cusack ok? Everyone needs a goal. good luck! πŸ™‚

    • I liked him too, though I think 2012’s the only movie I’ve actually seen him in. πŸ˜›

      • You’ve only seen him in 1 movie? Wow! lol…I think I’ve seen every movie he’s made. At least those that are released. His sister Joan often co-stars with him which is interesting. You should check out High Fidelity its one of my favs.

      • Oh, boy, you need to Netflix Say Anything, immediately. Or maybe that’s just a movie for chicks? Anyway, I wanted to marry Lloyd Dobler for a long, long time (can’t guarantee the movie will have the same effect on you, however :))

  6. Liked your site, I see you work in library, thought you might like my short story about a guy working in library.

    Found your site through Bryonic Man.

  7. you seem fairly interesting for a librarian from the Midwest studying law. I mean, you’re no Batman…wait – maybe you are & this was just to throw us off the scent. πŸ™‚

    • Or maybe I’m not Batman but I want you to think I am so you’re thrown off one scent and on to a completely different scent…:P

  8. The professor enjoys wacky random humor. Some say that’s what the professorish mind is.

  9. Congratulations on finishing your first novel!

    I liked your recent Trifecta post by the way.

    Best,
    Ana

  10. I have nominated you for the Liebster Award (at http://consciouscacophony.wordpress.com/2013/11/22/playing-liebster-by-the-rules/) because I enjoy your writing style. Thanks πŸ™‚

    • Thank you for the award! I shall accept in a proper post as soon as may be. πŸ˜›

    Yes, you must. Go! Answer the call of the mountains πŸ˜‰

    Hey Michael…This isn’t an award thing, I promise. But I wondered if you were interested in participating in a β€œwriting process” blog tour. I’m really trying to focus on writers whose work I admire because I want to hear about how you work. It’s also an opportunity to share what you’re working on with other bloggers. I would include a short paragraph about you in my blog tour response. I was tagged by Michelle Terry of MamaMick site. This is her contribution: http://mamamickterry.com/2014/07/29/unpolished-and-earthy-blog-tour/

    I need to tag three other bloggers who are willing to answer four questions about their writing process and tag three bloggers in return. I hope to get mine up this week. If you don’t have time or inclination, I completely understand. I will still love your work. Thanks for considering!

    • I can definitely participate. I have a bit more time available now that the bar exam is over. πŸ™‚ I’ve not always been the best at these blog tours, but I will definitely do a post in response to this one. πŸ™‚

      • Meg permalink

        Yes! Thanks so much, Michael. Could you do me a favor and email me at meg.galipault (at) gmail.com? That way I can share details (not that there are a lot but it is easier than communicating via comments).

  13. How are you doing on selling those 423 copies?

    • Not quite there yet, I’m afraid. I need to go and tally up, but I don’t think I’ve hit 23 yet, much less the 400 after. Still, one soldiers on. πŸ™‚

  14. Wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Blogger Recognition Award – see my post at https://talesofeneana.wordpress.com/2015/09/15/blog-award-time/. I know not everyone participates in blogging awards, but I wanted to give you a big fat gold star, even if you decide not to accept the award.

    Cheers!
    Joy
