I still can’t believe we are at the end of 2019, the end of
the decade! It’s impossible for me to mention the end of 2019 without mentioning
the end of a decade. I started self-publishing in the middle of the decade, in
2015, and if you ask me, I wouldn’t even say that’s when I really started
publishing. There was so much I didn’t know about self-publishing, so many
mistakes made, but those mistakes taught me valuable things. My first story, No
Fraternizing, Pt. 1, wasn’t even supposed to be a part 1. “Part 1” was
supposed to be it. But after almost a year after publishing that story, I
got a few messages from readers curious about how the story continued. I didn’t
even know I had readers before their messages. And that’s what this decade
represented for me… a time of discovery.
It’s here! my final release of 2019, Ebb & Flow, is now available on Amazon and on Kindle Unlimited. This story is the first of its kind – a continuation to a subscriber-only short story, available to all to read. Honestly, these characters were truly worth that continuation. Nubia and Naazir’s story is a story, like I’ve said, that strips away the optics of love and forgiveness, baring its bones. You’ll feel what they feel, go through the motions of their decisions, and truly feel invested in their love. Quite simply, you’re in for an experience 😉. Click the link below to download your copy!

In the middle of planning Ebb & Flow’s book release, I was hit with a story idea birthed from just a name mentioned in my previous release, Last Comes Love. A simple curiosity about what that character’s home life would be like morphed into a story idea I had to outline a few weeks before Thanksgiving. I just went with the idea and the motions of developing the story and what resulted from that flash of inspiration was a beautiful story I’m sure you’ll love. Meet Eva and Jaleel in my short holiday story, Home for Christmas! Check out the synopsis below…
So, one of the things I do to prepare my books for release, is listen to them. I often read the whole book outloud, but I like to hear it. I use Microsoft Word’s read aloud feature to give the book a bit of an audible type feel. I’ve been listening to Ebb & Flow these past few days and each time I press play, I fall more and more in love with this story. Naazir and Nubia’s story isn’t like many others, but that’s the case for a good few of my books. This scene here, the one this teaser was plucked from, is a dope one. It’s from a conversation that sets the tone for the book and gives insight on their relationship from Nubia’s point of view.
We are finally in the month of December. Later this month, I’ll be dropping my final release of the year, Ebb & Flow. I’m so excited for you to read Naazir and Nubia’s story. It’s a raw romance that takes you through many phases of their love, especially when there are outside forces at work. Love wins at the end but the journey does ebb and flow like ocean waves.
Here’s a teaser, a quote snipped from a very pivotal scene in Ebb & Flow…
