Sue Mydliak was born in Flint, Michigan. Came to Illinois when she was a little girl and graduated from Downers Grove South. It wasn't until the book Twilight came out did she develop her interest in writing. It was then in 2011, that her first book, Birthright, was published and made best seller the first week it was out. This lead her to make Birthright into a Trilogy. She has written two other books, Night Games and an anniversary book, Forever, which is Birthright's story, but whose story line is different and geared more for adults. She is currently writing two other books, Eternal and Secrets and has finished illustrating a new children's book, JellyBean Turns Three (see her Children's book website, http://susiebbooks.strikingly.com/)

Book Signing Event in Ottawa Successful!

Best book signing ever!  Sold and signed 21 books and I beat the infamous author, Stephen King who did a book signing there and only sold 6!  I was thrilled!  Everyone who saw the event posted in the paper couldn't wait to get their copy.  Some came from an hour away to just get their copy, talk about die hard fans!  I couldn't have been more happier than I was today.
I gave out posters and book markers and talked up a storm to those who came.  We talked how they got interested in Vampires and what got me started...just a breeze it was.  It was like I knew them and we just chatted away and the little ones that came in were so, so cute!  Oh my goodness I got a hug from a two year little boy, he was so sweet!
We're in the planning of yet another event in September at the Book Mouse.  Things are certainly looking up!

Cutting Deep

Words like swords pierce your heart
Slicing so quick, so fast with an edge
so sharp, that all is lost within seconds…

Life drips out, drop by drop
Pooling there on the floor like a pond
Till you can’t feel no more
Nor wish too…

You shed a tear
But all is lost…
             For good….
                            And so you say…

The woes of a writer...

We write our dreams, hopes down on paper or type our thoughts out on our computer, but however we do it, we do it with pride, love and great affection.  It is with all that, that when we finally reach our goal of it becoming published do we celebrate its birth, but then and not always, we find a fault and our world comes crashing down.
Its like having a new car and finding a scratch on it and we think that little, tiny scratch is as big as the Grand Canyon and it is no longer "new".  
I know, been there.  My novel, Birthright had one of those big scratches in it and I felt like a failure, but I got to thinking, everyone who has ever read my novel loved it.  Did they see the flaws? "No."  They only saw what they read and to them it was grand. " Can't wait for the sequel!" they said.  It's those wonderful readers that keep our worries at bay, keep us sane and realize that all is right with the world and that our scratch is just that a "scratch".  Nothing more, nothing less.  
So, with that, we pick up our hearts, place them back into our chest, plaster a smile on our face and once again, pen our dreams away on paper...or whatever is available within reach.  You my friends, authors in the spotlight are dreamers who cast wonderful scenes down for all to read.  Do not worry about the rock that is in the road, but kick it aside and carry on!  

Birthright in The Times!

My interview with The Times from Ottawa has finally come out!  It was a great interview and enjoyed it immensely.  Check it out!
