I also want to thank the readers who followed me to each blog. If you did you most likely entered in the giveaway! If you didn’t you still have time to visit the blogs but you’ll have to do it today!
This month was also National Novel Writing Month. Now I participated in NaNoWriMo last year but this year I couldn’t get it done. Womp womp womp lol. I know right. I’m always up for trying it again, I will never stop writing and the NaNoWriMo presents a challenge I believe all writers need every once in a while to sharpen up there writing skills. Even though this years challenge didn’t go down the way I’d hoped, all is not lost in writing land. There are so many stories circulating through this head of mine you wouldn’t believe it. I’m convinced I’m going to have to go back to carrying around a handheld tape recorder to make sure I don’t lose one detail of these stories.
So be it! Where there’s a will there’s a way. I hope your turkey day was grand. Hope your Christmas is even better. If you participated in NaNoWriMo tell me how your experience was and if you won! I’ve decided to start doing giveaways right here from this site. I’ll only announce the giveaway on this site and to the subscribers of my newsletter so in order for you to be in on it you’ve gotta stay up to date with me! I’ll let this post be the first! If you’ve never read the Trouble In Paradise series leave a comment on this post and promise to review it and I’ll pick someone to win a copy. That starts right now!
As I finally put the finishing touches on my book there is sigh of relief. I’m excited, pumped actually this series has been a good one to write. As a writer I not only create the characters and their emotions, I have to deal with them like the reader does. Some characters get on my nerve like Danielle (the nemesis) but I still love them all in their own way. Now I can let them speak for themselves and tell their story and I believe you will love it. I write romance but I take pleasure in knowing that my stories aren’t your typical romance stories. They come pact with much drama, thrills, suspense, obsession and restoration. So along with the new release comes, another round of contest/giveaways so make sure you are subscribed and connected to my newsletter. Only readers who are subscribed can participate in this upcoming contest. If you’ve never read the Trouble in Paradise series then you should get familiar with the characters. Subscribe to my youtube channel to see previous and present book trailers. Coming up this month I’m participating in a black writer’s and bookclubs literacy festival. This event happens September 20, 2014 from 10am to 5pm. This is the original release date for the paperback version of For Better and Worse but the fact is it maybe available sooner! Yay! As for the Kindle and Nook version they will be available September 27, 2014. The Kindle version is available now for pre-order.
Coming out of hibernation, Danielle Shumaker has put behind her the pain and misery she’s caused Victoria and Joshua. Blinded by her selfishness her ultimate goal is still her main one. As far as Danielle’s concerned Joshua belongs to her, always has and always will. No amount of therapy can cure her love addiction and no matter what anyone says she will fight for him, even if she has to kill someone AGAIN.
Wedding bells are in Victoria and Joshua’s future, Victoria is excited to be Mrs. Eubanks. However, when she closes her eyes at night, Greg invades her dreams, the passion and love leaves her wanting more and waking with doubt about her upcoming marriage. How will she get over this man or does she even want to?
Well it’s that time again! For Better and Worse part 3 of Trouble In Paradise will be out soon and to gear up for it’s debut I’m having a series review. This event will be held on Facebook’s event page wall. This will be another fun filled event with giveaways of course! To give you a little back ground on Trouble In Paradise. It is my debut novel released in 2012. It is the first book in my romantic suspense series.
Synopsis; Victoria is thankful for a lot of things- Joshua, the love of her life, a career change that starts a new chapter, and a condo in the suburbs of Chicago Illinois. Her jaw drops when she opens the garage and finds a brand new Cadillac wrapped in a huge bow. She is ecstatic and ready for the next steps towards her future. This is Victoria’s fresh beginning.
When Victoria and Joshua start their journey things take a turn for the worse. Victoria finds out her nemesis and Joshua’s ex, Danielle Shumaker has flown to Chicago to try to get Joshua back. Victoria is determined to win this fight, when she finds out Joshua has secrets of his own. Distraught, confused, and feeling the sting of betrayal she falls into the arms of another. When emotions run high and desire digs deep Victoria finds herself caught up in Trouble.
During the event we will discuss this story in detail and find out your likes and dislikes about characters and scenario’s played out in the story. We might even have guest characters in attendance. That should be very exciting. Upon completion of this part of the discussion we will move right into Vengeful Intentions which is part 2 of Trouble In Paradise. Both of these books are out and available on ebook and/or paperback on Amazon.com. A little bit about Vengeful Intentions.
Synopsis; After serving eight long months in jail and becoming obsessed with the woman who put her there Danielle Shumaker is released when the evidence held against her comes up missing. With Victoria clouding her mind with thoughts of revenge Danielle is caught off guard when someone wants to make her pay for past transgressions. Not needing the added drama Victoria is still torn between her feelings toward Greg and her undying love for Joshua. With new knowledge that Danielle has been released from jail; Victoria is stunned knowing Joshua has not been honest with her. Things get hotter when Joshua catches wind of Victoria’s affair and Caroline wants her husband back by any means necessary. Will this love story end in tragedy or will these couples learn to forgive and forget? Find out in part II of Trouble In Paradise.
As intense as this book cover looks the story is much more intense. I’m so excited about the release of part three and the book cover will be unveiled during the event.

Saturday April 26, 2014 we had a ball during the release of my new story Broken. The event was hosted on a Facebook event page wall and there were a lot of giveaways. First of all Marissa Palmer who is the author of the Lost In Bliss series was hosting the event with yours truly because her story was also being released on the same day. Marissa writes up under the pen Name Janae M. Robinson. The name was inspired by her three kids Ke’Asha Janae (Janae), Michael (M.), and Breanna Robinson (Robinson). What a unique way to come up with a pen name right? You can find her books on Amazon. So as the event went on we played games and gave challenges for our guest to win gifts. This post is to give a special shout out to those winners.
