Peek Inside

Hi guys! I know I've been quiet for a bit, but I've just been getting ready for my daughter's 5th birthday, which is this weekend. I brought her a new princess canopy bed, and she LOVES it. I know my book has been out for less than a week and I want to thank everyone who brought their copy! You guys rock, and I hope you are enjoying it (if you haven't finished it yet).

Anyway, I want to give the rest of you who hasn't read it yet a tiny peek inside. Here's a great excerpt from the beginning of the book:

Editing! The word scares me, but the editing on my next book to release, starts today! I'm so excited, yet nervous. I can't wait to have this book done, so I can share it with you guys. It's the first book I ever sat down and finished on a computer. It's well over 90,000 words, so you know a lot of work went into it. Wish me luck!

Big News!

So, I am now officially back on the market for a publisher. I am not one to dive deep into details and yadda, yadda, yadda. To me, I feel like things happen for a reason, even if it's beyond my power or not in my favor. That being said, I'm pushing forward. I will be self publishing a few books that I have written. If I don't like that route, I will be querying along the way. This is a new thing to me, and though I'm nervous about putting out my own books, I feel that my work needs to be out there. I truly appreciate everyone who has been with me on the ride to publication. I hope you will stick around!

I am excited that my first self published book will be out on Valentine's Day!! Woot! Woot!

New Cover

So, while I'm "resting" with a headache, I came up with a cover for another fiction I submitted to my publisher. It was actually the first full length book I ever typed up. over 95,000 words! Whoo that was some dedicaton lol. What do you guys think?

Telling your best friend that you’ve always been secretly in love with her should be easy right? That’s what Marshall Lockhart thought the night his best friend Caydence Williams planted a big one on him.

Marshall Lockhart may not have it all, but there’s one thing he can’t live without.

Caydence Williams, his beautiful best friend, and the girl he is madly in love with.

Today he’s gonna muster up the courage to tell her that. That was until the unthinkable happened.

Being murdered could really put a pin in your plans.

Caydence is devastated after losing the piece of her heart that fit perfectly. Finding Marshall alive in a place she’d least expect turns her life upside down, especially since she’d watched him and he had definitely been dead and buried. Without questioning the obvious–rescuing him from the unknown, she gets mixed up in a tailspin of trouble. Waking from the unknown, and coming to his senses, Marshall feels hollow, furious & hungry…very hungry. Fighting to stay in control of the unfamiliar beast inside of him, he finds his own dilemma. Little does Caydence know, the boy she once knew was buried deep inside & the monster inside of him was way too far on the surface—clawing its way out. But the bond and flourishing love of the two together may prove to be stronger than the obstacles thrown their way.

It's Almost Here!

Hi everyone :) I can't believe my new book will be here in less than a week! I'm so excited! And to show how excited I am, I'm posting an excerpt here! Yaay! So spread the word and don't miss this opportunity.

Here's your look into Heart of a Stripper:

Nevaeh walked into the apartment she shared with her dad, and saw him staring at the TV. They locked eyes briefly as she stood by the door, before closing it. She was surprised to find him awake that time of day, in the afternoon. Sucking in a breath, she started to walk past him to her room. He was wearing a white tank top and blue shorts with white socks. His hair was rough and he had a beard to match. Of course, there was a can of beer in his hand, and she was sure he was drunk.
“Where the hell you been?” he grumbled, in a husky voice.
“School.” She said, sarcastically as she slipped between him and the TV.
“You’re in my way!” he shouted throwing the beer can at her.
She dodged it, and it hit the flat screen TV that she brought a few days ago. On impact, the beer splattered all over the screen. That enraged him and he shot to his feet.
“Look what you did, bitch!!” he shouted.
“Sorry, I didn’t let it hit me.” She said cynically, yet hurt by his words.
“Clean that shit up now! And after that, cook me dinner.” He ordered staring over at her.
“I’m not your wife dad.” She answered.
“What did you say to me?” he asked, narrowing his eyes at her.
Swallowing hard, she shook her head.
“Nothing, dad.” She sighed walking towards her room.
“Get back here and clean my damn TV!” he shouted.
“I have homework!” she shouted back, as she sat her book bag on her bed.
Her room was tiny, but she was working on making it look cozy. So far, she had a twin sized bed and had decorated her walls somewhat. Closing her room door, she pulled out her text and notebooks before sitting down. Not too soon after, he door swung open and her dad was standing there, more than irate.
“Don’t sit there and act like you’re smart.” He barked. “You’re not good for anything but lying on your back.”
Nevaeh looked up to him as she gripped the pen she had in her hand. She fought back tears as he kept tearing into her, chipping away more and more of her soul.
“You’re a whore just like your mother. Don’t think I don’t know that you sneak out of the house. You’re never going to amount to anything but a slut.” He bit.
“You don’t know anything about me.” She whispered.
“I know plenty.” He insisted. “You think making a little money from selling your body is going to help you? You’ll never amount to anything just like your mother.” He growled.

New Release On Valentines Day 2013 Heart of a Stripper

“The love that lasts the longest is the love that can never be.”

For twenty-five year old Mitchell McCallister, that statement never seemed true. Finding the woman he loved happened in a snap, or so he thought. That was, until he found a connection with someone else, in a place he least expected. One kiss was all it took to keep him breathless and wanting more, but falling for a stripper he would never see again seemed foolish.

Being abandoned by her mother and living with her alcoholic father, Nevaeh Sky never really knew what it meant to feel wanted. Moving to a new town still wouldn’t change that, right? Waltzing into the office as a senior transfer to her new high school, Nevaeh is bemused to find the very mysterious stranger who was too shy to make a move on her at her new job. Having Mitchell as her new principal, she’s sure it will cause more harm than good.

With an impending marriage, Mitchell struggles to keep his distance from Nevaeh, until he finds her beaten and bloody on the school steps. Taking her in and learning her secrets, the explosive forbidden attraction between them leaves Mitchell wavering; not only with her, but in his own life. Determined to save her from the life she’s chosen, Mitchell has no idea his world will never be the same again.

But will saving Nevaeh be worth destroying everything he’s worked so hard for?
