This year so far has been a year of growth that has been immeasurable. I’ve dared myself to move more toward challenges instead of moving away from them, poured more of my energy into creative writing, and I’ve spent less time freelance copywriting which was originally a scary idea. I honestly never saw anything past publishing my first story, No Fraternizing, Pt. 1, and it only became a part 1 when I decided to continue to give this self-publishing thing a real try. And I’m glad I did because here I am today, invested and inspired to keep going.
Indecent Arrangement, the first continuation from my Forbidden anthology is available now in paperback too! This story was a lot of fun to write and I’m so happy it can now sit on physical bookshelves.
Coming this Fall! The release date for my next release will be announced later this month. I’m so excited for you to read this story. It’s a bittersweet friends to lovers story that you’ll remember long after you’ve closed the book. Here’s a sample from one of the chapters. Enjoy!

I have wanted to do a series for the longest but I couldn’t come up with a theme. When the idea to work my version of the seven deadly sins hit and I let it marinate so that it became an idea I could be excited about, I ran with it. Like I explained in a previous post, the first book from the Love is Cure Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series, PRIDE, is complete and it is soooo good, but listen I’m bias lol. I love all of my books once I’m done with the first draft. The first time I pore over the first draft and self-edit it, now that’s a whole different story. But the love returns after it has gone through a few rounds of editing.
I can’t keep this to myself any longer. First, let me just
say this series has been at least two years in the making. I spent time reworking
it off and on, researched until my eyes crossed, misplaced pages then found them.
I typed several outlines on my old computer, outlines lost after my laptop experienced
water damage winter 2018. Inspiration has hit then went away only to come back
again and be overshadowed by a clearer more exciting idea at the time. But I actually
sat my ass in a chair this time, mapped out all the stories, and have already
It seems I got a lot of love for August 1st lol. I have three books to celebrate bookversaries! When I was working on my calendar last month and realized that I released not one but three books on the same date just years apart, I had to laugh. They Call Me Mello’s release was intentional. I liked the mirror effect of the dates 8/1/18. But NF2 and NF3 were purely coincidental… or was it? I find it cosmic that NF2, the book where Mello first makes an appearance was released on 8/1 like his book. I didn’t even plan that. Anyway, Happy Birthday book babies! They grow so fast! Have you read any of them?
