Do you self-publish or are you traditionally published?  

Short answer:  both:)  For details and tips based on my experiences with self-publishing, click here.

When is your next book coming out?

I keep my website updated with my most recent/upcoming release.  You can find excerpts and more information here.

I'm writing a book/novella/poetry/collection of short stories.  Will you read it and give me feedback?

As much as I'd love to do this for everyone, I'm a terrible critic!  I don't like pointing out flaws or being negative, so it would be a waste of your time and mine, not to mention that it would wilt my soul.  I'm more of the encouraging type:)  I would highly suggest finding another author whom you trust and have confidence in and asking them to be your crit partner.

Do you sell signed books?

I do!  You can visit my store here.  If you have already purchased a book or merchandise elsewhere and would like for me to sign it, please send the item(s) along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to me here.

Do you provide author interviews?

I love to participate with interviews! Just email me with the details at m.leighton.books@gmail.com

Do you attend signings?

I do. I will post a schedule of sites on my blog and on my website by the end of January of each year.

How do you feel about [insert bad news, drama, questionable behavior or highly flammable topic here]?

I am allergic to drama and I try to avoid negativity at all costs.  I'm pretty good at it, too, so chances are I have no idea what [inserted item] is even about:)  I'm one of those who firmly believes if you don't have anything nice to say, just don't say anything.

Now, on to the important things:

Left or right?  Right

Pantser or plotter?  Pantser to a fault

Married or single?  Very, very, very happily married (to the awesomestestest guy in the world!)

Coke or Pepsi?  Coke

Chocolate or french fries?  Chocolate

Edward or Jacob?  Edward!!!!

Cats or dogs?  I love 'em both, but I'm a bit partial to dogs. They get SO excited to see you!

Favorite color?  Red

Favorite book?  The Bible

Favorite movie?  Dang it!  This one is so hard!  I can tell you that my most quoted movie is Anchorman. What can I say? I'm a Will Ferrell fan:)

Favorite character?  I could never pick one. They're like my babies! Or boyfriends and best friends! I can't choose!
