So I’m dealing with a little conundrum and was hoping I could run the idea past you all. I’ve been working on content for my newsletter and a reader magnet and I can’t decide what you all might want to see/read.
I’m in the process of a contemporary short that I was thinking of making my reader magnet–which for those of you who don’t know is a freebie for those who sign up for the newsletter.
Or would you all rather have a short about my scifi romance series? Is there anything in particular anyone would want to see?
Feel free to comment below with suggestions or email me at email@example.com.
Also, if you haven’t yet checked out my book, its available for purchase on Amazon!
Soooo, I put my book The Alien Chief’s Bargained Bride up on Booksprout. There are 19 copies left when I last checked, so if you’re interested in getting a free copy of my up and coming debut fiction book, head on over.
You’re unable to snag your copy on booksprout.co you can get it now while it’s on sale for $0.99 on Amazon.
Mallory Delour would do anything for her little sister, Stephanie. So when a genetic disease threatens her sister’s life, Mallory is left with only two options: She can go into crippling medical debt to delay the inevitable, or she can become an alien’s bride with the assurance that Stephanie will receive life-altering gene therapy. For Mallory, the choice is easy…. But for Alek’dar, it isn’t. When the humans approached him, he’d been wary. But, by taking them up on their offer, he can kill two birds with one stone—a bride for him and an alliance with the humans. Happiness hasn’t been factored into their decision but that doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t find it. Unless someone, or something, stands in their way.
Well, I’m currently working on editing my book before its release, which is set on January 1, 2020 for those of you who dont already know.
I’m so excited about it! I actually recieved my own book as a recommendation from Amazon yesterday. It was kinda weird, but hey! So long as it’s getting out there. 😊
I also just got the cover for the sequel and went ahead and put it on preorder in Amazon!
Her sister had married an alien. It hadn’t even truly registered with Stephanie Delour that Mallory was gone until she found herself standing in front of their old home locked out.
She knew that Mallory had scrimped and saved where she could. But with the discovery that her sister had resorted to selling herself to an alien for enough credits for the treatment, she pushed herself through recovery.
Running off with the money wasn’t an option.
So, Stephanie decided to find her sister to, well, she wasn’t entirely sure what she was going to do. She just knew that a life amongst the stars wasn’t as appealing as it used to be. Not with Mallory’s fate looming over her head. Not without Mallory by her side.
Qui’da had come to regret not giving his sister-in-law a chance all because she was a human. And now the entire flock, his family included, had turned their backs on him. Given the option to either lose his wings or work with the humans, he chose the latter.
Losing his wings wasn’t an option.
But forced into close proximity with the wingless rats wasn’t much of one either. Unfortunately for him, he would be finding himself forced to work rather closely with an infuriating woman traipsing across the planet to find his old flock.

So, I’ve definitely decided to participate in Nanowrimo this year. For those of you who don’t know, Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Your goal: 50k words in the month of November. It’s not easy, but with determination I’m hoping I can achieve it again this year.
If anyone else reading this is participating, feel free to add me as a buddy.
I’ll try to keep you all updated every few days with my progress. I’m going to be working on the second book in a scifi romance series that I’ve been working on the last few weeks. My hopes are that once my word count for the day is reached, I get back to work on the first book but we’ll see.
As for the first book, it has a over 20k so far and is going well. I can’t wait to finally publish it and for you all to be able to read it. When I get closer to publishing it, I’ll even do a cover reveal for you all so you’ll be some of the first ones to see it before it’s live.
What did you want to be when you grew up? An astronaut? Fireman? Doctor? I, and many others of course, wanted to be the next famous best selling author, which obviously still hasn’t happened yet.
Where are you at in the long and arduous journey of following through with your dreams? For myself, I’m not where I would like to be. It doesn’t help that I tend to have dry spells of not writing anything at all.
So far I’ve published a poetry book, A Journey: Still in Progress, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten at the moment. A Journey is about dealing with depression throughout the various phases of life. It is grouped into three sections: Childhood, Marriage, and Motherhood. You can purchase your copy here.
I’m currently working on a couple of fiction novels. Both have single parents falling in love, one after being widowed while the other had been alone since the pregnancy. The first and lengthiest one at 16k words is Kara, followed by The Sweet Room at just 8.5k words. I hope to have these two and one other, The Christmas Bride published by the end of the year.
As of this afternoon, I am an officially published author. Currently, I’m not entirely sure how to feel about this new development. I mean, I’m happy because I’ve wanted to write and get published since I was a child but I’m also terrified at the same time.
I had been pushing off the release date for a while now because the thought of finishing my book caused me anxiety. Butterflies had been (and they’re still at it as I write this post) assaulting my innards for the last several hours but I knew I had to do it. So, I ripped off the band aid and submitted the book. It is now available on Amazon in eBook format and paperback (feel free to head over and purchase a copy of my book if you’re interested).
A Journey (Still in Progress) is a poetry book that details my experiences of surviving life with severe depression that had-until recently-been completely untreated (and it was—and is a very bad idea to let it go as far as I had). I didn’t write for over two years when it’s something that I love and feel passion for.
I’m going to just take a quick moment to say that if you are dealing with a mental illness, please keep it in check. It doesn’t make you crazy just because you can’t feel happy all of the time or because your brain doesn’t produce chemicals you need. It had affected every single aspect of my life and I almost lost that uphill battle. Please take care of yourselves because you do matter. I just wanted to mention that in the event that anyone needed to be reminded.
