365 Challenge: Day 264 – Simply (Author Alert: Melanie Mole)

Posted on Updated on

Simply: (a) easily understood or done; presenting no difficulty; straightforward or (b) 365 Daily Challenge word for today’s author alert — Melanie Mole

If you are new to the ThisIsMyTruthNow blog, the 365 Daily Challenge, or the Author Alert segment, check out the About Site section from the main menu. Below are some key things to know about this author, but at the end of this post, you’ll see the permanent page I’ve added to my blog. You can return to check out more on who she is, what she’s writing and how to buy her future work. Melanie and I met about 6 months ago when we somehow connected via this blog. She’d read a few chapters of my work and then introduced me to her publisher, which eventually lead to me publishing my novel. I am eternally grateful to her for helping me cross that finish line. Today, she’s out guest author and I am very happy to share more information about her and the wonderful books she’s written. I read her novel, Simply Does It, earlier this year — please check out the review. A small part of it below:

‘Every once in a while, it’s good to take a chance on a new author or a new book topic. I’m glad I did with this one and encourage others to take a look at the book for their own world. It may just give you a different perspective, one you might have heard before, but always need a reminder of. And if simplifying life is not for you, it’s still a fun tale about three experiences many of us don’t have very often in life. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to visit a convent or a monastery… now I have a good sense.’


When Melanie and I chatted this week about life being an author, one of the first things that came to mind for me was how she accomplishes everything she does. I read her book and learned a lot about her life, but I wanted to know more… Is there anyone pushing her  on the sidelines, I asked, curious to compare our experiences. She had a great response:

Support for a writer is so important. Yes, you can write without it, but it is so much easier to know that someone has your back no matter what you are going through. I am so lucky to have full and continued support from Rob, my other half. As soon as we met I knew that he was one in a billion, and he hasn’t disappointed me. I feel both lucky, and privileged to have him in my life, and I wouldn’t ever want to be without him, or his support.

 Everyone should be as lucky as her!

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

    Hey Jay! I don’t wanna be that person, but I wanted to let you know I tried three of the links down at the bottom of the page for Melanie and her blog link directs to her twitter. But the links for Twitter and FB are fine. However, I found her in here and plan to browse. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

        I know these things happen and like it when others let me know. Didn’t want to be pushy or anything though. No worries! 🙂

        Hi. I TOTALLY appreciate it. It looks like just the blog link was wrong, so I fixed it. You’re never pushy. Everything else went to the proper place for me, but if you find anything else, don’t ever hesitate to tell me. I am totally OK being corrected when I’m wrong! 🙂
