One Week & One Day

It’s been one week and one day since I sent off my manuscript for INESCAPABLE: The Beginning. Have not heard anything yet, but I am still feeling great about the request. It took twenty-one days after I sent my query letter for the request, so I’m still excited. Of course, I have everything crossed that I can cross (eyes, legs, arms, fingers, toes, etc) and that has been a problem walking, seeing, holding things and especially eating. (grin)

On another note: I will be attending the In’DScribe Author Reader Con in Palm Springs, California, September 17 -20. To celebrate my attending I have put the Kindle version of book one INESCAPABLE: The Beginning on SALE now through December 31 for 99¢.

Action-packed. Full of suspense. Romantic. Fiery. Just a few words used to describe the new Inescapable series by Madge H. Gressley. Add a little romance, murder, mystery, sci-fi, and a dash of evil and you have the perfect combination that will have you on the edge of your seat and begging for more.

Several of my fellow authors who are attending also have their books on SALE. Here are a couple….

WEDDING BANDS by Ev Bishop: RONE Award finalist. 99¢ on Amazon

A terrible misunderstanding separates high school sweethearts, Jo and Callum. When they meet again years later, will they be able to get past their hurt pride and old wounds, or will they go their separate ways permanently?

SOMETHING GOOD by Darlene Deluca–another new-to-me author and RONE finalist:

A mistake. A blessing. A tragedy.
And now, Mandi Evans has made it her goal to fade into anonymity. Once a straight-A student with her choice of colleges, she’s withdrawn into a life that consists of two jobs, an online class, and memories. Crippled by the past, she feels unworthy of a better life – until Lane Whitmore walks into the diner where she works six nights a week.


As the go-to wedding planner, Suzy can’t find her own wedded bliss and has one shocker of a wedding day. It doesn’t help that she’s still pining for her high school sweetheart, the one who got away. Handling neurotic brides is the best part of Suzy’s day until her son brings home a bombshell from Europe.

Day Two

Here it is day two since the most exciting day in my life happened. Yes, it even beats out my wedding day which was a very momentous event in itself! I am still flying three feet off the ground and get goosebumps every time I think about it. No, I haven’t heard anything yet, but then again, I’m sure the agent is extremely busy due to the amount of queries they get on a daily basis.

In the meantime since I reported my ‘great news’, INESCAPABLE: The Beginning and INESCAPABLE: Remembering have been hopping in and out of the Top 100 Best Seller List on Amazon. Have not made the #1 slot yet, but they will!

Book 3 INESCAPABLE: Tomorrow sales are good, and is moving ever closer to the Top 100 Best Seller List, too, but no reviews yet. I am anxious to know what my fans think about Tomorrow. Please write me a review and let me know.

Great News!!!

Just have to share with everyone my great news (at least it’s great to me), this afternoon I received an email from one of the many, many, many, many, query letters I have sent out seeking a literary agent. This agent asked to read the entire manuscript for book 1. I am so over the top!!!!!! I know it’s no guarantee that I will be offered reputation, but just the fact that they asked to read the whole thing is truly exciting. It took me 45 minutes to calm down after I read the email. I had no idea I would be so overwhelmed! Wish me luck and lots of prayers.
