I’m sorry I haven’t posted. I’m writing and being a mother.
I hope everyone had an awesome summer.
I wonder if you guys miss Mercy and the boys like I do???
As an update, for those of you that read Remember, it got a much-needed facelift and not the outside of the book, but the inside. I had the book re-editing yet again. And this time, I think it was done right. I can finally put that monkey behind me and get the paperback done.
In other news, I would love to finish the second book in Remember series, but it feels as though readers don’t want paranormal anymore. Is that true? I hope not, I love paranormal.
I am writing like crazy. I have two books that will release on audio this month. However, they aren’t under this author name. I have a book due to my editor on the 9/15. And I hope to finish my current WIPs by the end of the month freeing up time for me to get back to what I love. That’s writing young adult.
Thanks to all of you, who have continued to support me. I have a new adult dystopian book that needs to go through editing. I have a gorgeous cover just waiting for me to share. And I have to finish writing book two in the Charlize Daniels series.
I also have an idea for a contemporary romance book. So many ideas, so little time.
I just wanted to give a heads up that I’m still around.
REMEMBER IS LIVE!!!! AND FOR A LIMITED TIME IT’S 99 CENTS.
Sixteen-year-old, Charlize Daniels, is resigned to her place in the shadows until one day with a rush of death, she meets him.
He’s everything she’s not. Tall with face like an angel, a mouth like a sinner, tattoos and piercings to rival those of rock gods, in one word, he’s cocky. And worse, he comes with his own personal fan club.
Only their every meeting is suspect, leaving her to question why he only ever turns up when her life is headed south, backwards or upside down. His explanations are shady, and his hot and cold gives her whiplash. But his lips on hers burn and take her places she’s never been.
If only she can trust him. If only he reveals what he really is? Then hopefully they won’t end up on opposite sides of a frienemy line, and she’s forced to take him down. Worse case, he’s already planned to take her out first. And not on a date, but in a dead kind of way.
For a limited time, the book is 99 cents as a thank you for all your support over the years.
This week has been a trying time for our family as we deal with one of my children being a victim of a crime. We would like to believe things like what happened, happens to someone else. But you never know. I hope you and yours will never experience what me and mine are going through. I won’t say more in order to protect my family and the ongoing investigation. Thanks for giving me time to work through this and understanding my release delay.
Enjoy the rest of your week. Spring is coming at least in weather temperature for us. I hope you have nice weather as well.
Next month, I should be releasing my New Adult Dystopian romance. The story, originally named Looking, has been pulled from Wattpad. I look forward to sharing the cover with you. The book is in the hands of the editor. So it will likely change some from the version posted on Wattpad.
Last but not least, I hope to release another free “episode of Mercy and the gang” after the final book. That and I’m working on releasing Rogue, the follow-up to Alliance.
Hey guys. Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been busy. If you don’t know, I hit the USA Today list for a new adult book I wrote under a different pen name and that has started to eat up more and more of my time.
However, I’m still committed to my young adult books, including Remember. The book has been re-edited and gotten a new cover I’ve been sitting on for a while. I hope you guys will share for me. Sharing is caring, lol.
I also plan to publish my young adult dystopian novel that currently on Wattpad. I can’t wait to share that cover with you guys.
Anyway, here is the cover. And thanks for sticking with me. Without you all, my dream of writing wouldn’t be possible.
Much love on Valentine’s Day. I hope you guys are having a great one.
This is my apology letter. While I had every intention in the world to release Sacrifice of Mercy on October 15th, it didn’t happen.
It seems I’m cursed. Shortly after I made the release date announcement, road blocks started to surface in my life to cause this cluster F$@%. While I assumed nearly a month was enough time to do my final read through with edits, sadly it wasn’t.
My kids started to get sick, one by one and my husband too. It boiled down to: I have time and they need me (or so they whined they did, lol), so in my head ‘I’ll work on it the next day’. Well, as the virus worked its way through my household as viruses do with young children who won’t keep their hands washed or cough in their elbow unless I’m looking. So eventually, I got sick. And I happened to get it the worst. Three days I did nothing but feel as though I was dying.
After getting a bunch of meds from the doctor, at this point I’m scrambling to finish the edits. I considered accepting all and putting the book out there. But my critique partner suggested that I just share with you all what was going on.
Stubborn as I am, I was determined to finish the edits through hell and high water. In fact, I spent several sleepless ‘unproductive’ nights over the last few days trying to get done. Only the day came for publishing, and I struggled to try to stay awake and not taking meds to so that I could finish (meds made me sleepy). And I crashed, unable to stop myself.
Today, I had a follow up with the doctor. I’m not better. I have a course of meds to take, and doctors worried I’m not taking good care of myself. AND my kids woke up this ‘day off from school’ asking if I planned to take them to the movies and to get their Halloween costumes as promised. (I thought I would be done with the book when I made that promise).
I had to make some tough decisions.
And I decided I needed to come clean. And hope you guys will forgive me. I also decided I can’t keep letting my kids down because in their words, I’m always in front of a computer, and I don’t have time for them. (Guilty). I need to give them some time today.
So I beg that you all will understand I need just a few more days. I promise to put it up after I finish with the last 30 or so percent of edits. I hope it’s worth the wait. And again, I’m sorry.
*hangs head low*
Also, I’m not ignoring your post, comments, PMs, emails. I’ve just been so focused on the book; I haven’t read through them yet. And I’ll admit I didn’t want to feel any guiltier than I do. I will respond to all your messages in the next day once Mercy is live.
Again, I’m sorry…
