Summer Time!

Hi Sugas! Happy summer!!

I hope this newsletter finds you all well and enjoying the hopefully beautiful weather.

I’ve been spending the first few weeks of June adjusting to my son being home for the summer, work, summer camps, tutoring, summer fun, AND writing.

It’s happening … the writing, that is.

I’m currently working on Marty’s story. I hadn’t planned on writing his book now. I had been working on a totally different story—one that would be a part of a new series—but when Marty’s story came to me, it came with the force of a tsunami. The other stories in its wake needed to run for cover or be decimated. So, I put aside my new series and went to work full-time on Marty’s story. And while he’s a character we know (and love), his story doesn’t really focus on the band (though they are definitely a part of this book). It introduces a whole slew of new characters—his family. And let me say, what a bunch of characters they are!

Bit of a timeline … I hope to release Marty’s book in early Fall. (fingers crossed).

In the mean time, July will see the release of Baby, It’s You, a Stars on Fire novella I wrote for the limited release anthology, Hot for the Holidays. It’s an important little novella and I wanted to make sure readers could get their hands on it (and the paperback as well).

The cover reveal for Baby, It’s You is 7/8.
The release will be 7/25 (Christmas in July LOL).

Baby It’s You BLURB:

It’s been a long road for the members of Last Star and they are ready for some holiday fun …

Mia’s last minute plans to produce a holiday song for their fans had the band converging on their lead singer’s in-home studio—in the middle of cold and snowy December.

But Marty, Clark, and Todd would do anything for Mia … especially a pregnant Mia.

What could go wrong?

More than you think …

Reviews … to read or not to read?

It’s a scary feeling to read someone’s words about these words you pretty much threw your heart and soul into. To hear the criticism as well as the love. Good or bad, reading reviews can leave me an emotional mess.

Recently I received a review of Losing You that made me think about the entire writing process of the book, of the characters (especially Tom, and not just think about him; I haven’t been able to get him out of my mind since), of giving up. These parts of her review … god … got me right in the heart:

Tom. Best friend and lover. I’m so glad to have his story. Tom’s story of Mia. Tom’s story of Marc. Tom’s story of Lizzie. Tom’s sadness, strength, and love. Tom was good through and through. His story was a mixture of beauty and heartbreak.

Thank you for Tom’s story. I can only imagine the heartbreak and tears that went into each page of his story. But the man who we saw in the other stories needed his own and it truly was beautiful.

This was the hardest story I’ve ever wrote; so emotionally draining in ways my therapist might have said, “oh sh!t!”. This book was the closest I ever came to giving up and saying, “what the f$ck am I doing? Why am I putting myself through this?”

I just wanted to thank you the reviewer for her words and to also take this time to thank all the readers that have written a review for one of my books.

Reviews aren’t just about those stars next to the title on Amazon or iBooks. To me, they are about the drive to continue when you are trying to juggle all the hats you have to wear plus the ones you want to wear; they’re the drive to better my craft when left a negative or critical review despite the fact that it adds another hat to juggle. To me, they are a connection to you, the reader, telling me what you think.

So, again … thank YOU!

And because that review let Tom into my head again, my Teaser Tuesday post this week features Losing You

It’s available now on Amazon as well as Kindle Unlimited!

Sharing is Caring — Never Over You style, Part 1

I’ve been working on my website today and the mood to share with y’all was overwhelming me. So … here’s a little snippet from Never Over You, Book 3 in Mia and Ethan’s story. Please remember that this is subject to change.

wall“Don’t walk away from me,” Mia said, her voice trembling with emotion.
Slowly turning around, he regarded her and saw the tears streaming down her face.
“Please don’t go,” she pleaded, her other hand clutching his arm as well. “Don’t leave me.”
“I’m not going anywhere, suga,” he answered, shocked by the way she reacted, the way she cried harder in reaction to his words.
What the hell is going on … he thought as he pulled her into his arms for an embrace. She grasped his face and then her lips were finally against his. Desperation laced her kiss. He wanted to question it; he wanted to know what was bothering her, but it had been so long since she had kissed him like this, his body overruled his mind and he returned the kiss, backing her up against the wall. His mouth covered hers with an almost savage intensity. Her hands traveled from his face to his hair, her grip tight as she held him to her. Reluctantly, he broke the kiss and spoke her name.
“No, I don’t want to talk, Ethan,” she said desperately, her lips all over his face.
“You’re avoiding the problem.”
“I know. Just let me. Please?” she begged, kissing his lips. “Please?” she repeated, her sweet mouth caressing his chin.

SYNOPSIS:

What happens when you continually run from your demons?

When Mia watched Ethan walk out of her life, she did what she did best—she ran—ran from the only person who ever made her feel safe; home.

They work even harder to try and find you.

He was her everything and she let him slip away.

And when they do … they’ll come at you full force, guns blazing.

Hitting rock bottom forced Mia to stop. Now she needed to dig herself out. Figuring out how to do that required help, maybe a plan. She had to face those demons. Not an easy task when she spent her entire life running from them.

Would Ethan still be there for Mia after all was said and done? Or would she find that he had moved on? Or would he still be into her?

“Should we even be doing this?” he asked, kissing her chin. “We both know how you have a tendency to lose control when we make out.”

A laugh escaped her as she looked at him in incredulous wonder. Keep making her laugh, he thought.

“Yeah, maybe you’re right,” she said, settling back on the couch.

Until she turns the tables on me.

“Wait. Seriously?”

“I really don’t want Allie to be mad. She’ll make my life miserable. Though,” she said, tracing his lips with her finger, “I am pretty tempted.”
