Stay with me is now available on Amazon, Smashwords and Google Play. I am still waiting for it to go live on Nook and Kobo. I don't know what is taking it so long. Normally that are just as fast as Kindle but for some reason that was not the case this time around. I will keep you updated on when it does finally go live with them. Now that I've completed Stay With Me my next goal is to finish up the other two books that I have been working on for quite so time. The book that follows 'Only Me' and 'Remember Me' called Second Chances. And I really want to complete Shift but I think I am going to have to print it and do some major revisions there. I feel like it's missing something and I don't think I can just add it in. So I see a re-write in my future. I think that I have found some new inspiration with Shift so I am looking forward to getting back to work. I always knew that Shift was going to take a bit more in the way of research and so far that seem to be holding true. In other news I am also moving at the end of this month. I will be moving from Charlotte to Winston-Salem. Joy I love packing (said with all the sarcasm in my body). It's not a far move only an hour and twenty minutes away. However to some of my family members I may as well be moving across that country. I am looking forward to the change. Somewhere new. So that is all for now as soon as Stay With Me goes live on Kobo and Nook I will post the buy links. Off to work now. Goodbye for now.
Well everyone Only me is available on the following eReaders Kindle, Kobo, and Nook (The product page isn't up yet.). It is all so available on smashwords and the paperback is available in my eBookstore and will be on Amazon within the next 5-7 days. I am. I am waiting for smashwords to finish processing it so that it can go to Apple iBookstore. I am thrilled at since this was the second go round I didn't have any really problems with getting things done.
Although Google Books is giving me some trouble apparently I can not use the following character [space] I kid you not that is what it told me when I tried to upload my book last night. I'm trying to figure out if they just want one long run on sentence or what. It's ridiculous really what do they want from me. I am so happy with how this book turned out. If you go over to the Snip its tab you can read one of my favorite excerpts from the book.
I brought back some of the characters for Remember and I also created some new one. Now what I have to do is make a decision on what to work on next. I could keep working on Shift. I'm in chapter eight page 125 my goal is to have at least three hundred pages. Or I could work on another Romance novel. It's one that I wrote almost seven years ago. It needs a little polishing and maybe a few more chapters. But I could probably have it done in a month. I think I will live it up to my readers.
Which one would you rather I work on first. Should it be Sci-Fi or should it be more Romance. I'd love to know what you as a reader would want. So please leave me a comment, or a suggestion. Well I am off to go and deal with Google Books wish me luck and Happy reading.
So I have been hard at work doing a multitude of different things. Mostly preparing for the up coming holiday and recovering from the last one. I am taking a break from writing Shift in order to give myself sometime to decide where my story is taking me. So while I am taking a break I am not slacking off I a working on another book entitled Only Me. It is a romance novel base here in Charlotte. Since I haven't written enough to give you a true teaser I will give you the back cover notes. I hope that you like what you read, Only me will most likely come out before book one of Shift so you can look for it soon in ebook stores. Without further ado here's a sample.
Sienna Sanclair never thought that when she ran from her unwanted fiancé' that she would be running right in to the arms of another. She had decided a long time ago never to be like her mother. She had big dreams and there wasn't a man in any of them. However Liam Pierceson would be the man of any woman's dreams, just not hers.
Paul Newlyn has just been given the gift of a lifetime. Too bad for him his gift has decided that she doesn't want to be given. In a last ditch effort to win her over he decides to give her a gift of his own. A gift that could prove to be the biggest mistake of his life.
Liam Pierceson high powered business attorney has never been afraid to fight for what he wants and with Sienna Sanclair he is sure that this will be a fight to the death. Every time he takes a step forward she makes him take two steps back, but there is just no way he will give up on this witty island beauty. He likes a woman that can keep him on his toes.
Read on as the story unfolds on the woman that refuses to be claimed and the two men hell bent on have her as his own.
So I know it's been awhile since I have updated my blog. I have been really busy. With what you may ask well motherhood of course. It is amazing. My kids drive me crazy, especially my daughters. My house never stays clean for longer that an hour, someone is always hungry and I can never get any work done but my world would be empty without them. My oldest daughter is giving my a lot of trouble as most pre-teen girls do. My two year old it doing what two year olds do best. Getting into everything and bouncing off the walls. My son and his snarky comments and digs at his sisters they are all just insane but I love them all more than my next breath of air, and I need them just as much.
That being said I am making some headway on Shift. I have been working on it as much as I can. I've been reading my work and I like what I'm reading but I am bias so I don't really think my opinion really matters. So it will be up to my readers. I am hoping the you all will enjoy reading it as much as I am enjoying writing it. I've been finding time somehow not really sure how (I'm sure it has something to do with only sleeping about 5 hours a day) but I have been reading some books as well the latest book that I read was The Ghost Hunter By Lori Brighton. I really enjoyed it.
Before I go maybe I should give you a little something to enjoy while you wait. Here is a little teaser from my upcoming book Shift Bond Unbroken.
Aamina sat at the table with Yasmin slurping down her second soda. Every few minutes or so her eyes would dart around to the entrance. She was sure that Yasmin thought she was crazy to be honest she thought so herself. Her subconscious was taking over her life. Bringing her dreams out into the light of day, making her act like a mental case. The stresses of her life were finally catching up with her.
“Aamina.” Yasmin whispered loudly waving her hand in front of Aamina’s face. “If you don’t start talking soon I’m going to march you right across campus to student counselling “
Aamina blinked a few time before saying “I’m not sure exactly what to say.”
“What happened to you today? You could start there.”
“Let’s just say I woke up on the wrong side of the couch.”
“Huh, Aamina you’re not making any sense.”
“Oh” Aamina groaned slapping her hand over her eyes. “None of what I’m about to tell you is going to make any sense. You’ll probably bypass student counselling and take me straight to mental health after I tell you what’s bothering me.”
“Try me?” Yasmin said leaning back in her seat and giving Aamina a bemused look.
“I guess I should start at the beginning.” She said taking a sip of her soda. “All summer long I have been having dreams, dreams of a man.”
Aamina eyed Yasmin for some sort of reaction, when she saw none she continued. I have watched this man being hanged, shot, and tortured. But every night he is there in my dreams as though nothing happened. Save the scars he otherwise appears to be the picture of health.”
“I dreamt of him one night speaking to a guard and the next morning I woke up and was able to speak Farsi. And today while I was in history 1160 I saw him.”
“Aamina,” Yasmin said shaking her head in disappointment. “You fell asleep in history class honestly it can’t be that boring.”
“I didn’t fall asleep Yasmin. He was there I mean like really there standing in front of me.”
“The guy from your dreams was standing in your history 1160 class.” She stared at her doubtfully
“Yes.” Aamina said nodding vehemently. “I knew his name before he even said it to me.”
“You spoke to him?” Yasmin was sitting on the edge of her seat now.
“Well no not really, he tried to introduce himself but I high tailed it out of there before he could say much more.
Yasmin sat back in her seat and stared at Aamina. “You know maybe you taking this history class was a bad idea. I do believe the strain of having to do real work has addled your brain.”
“You don’t believe me?” Aamina said disheartened.
“It’s all just really hard to swallow Aamina.” Yasmin sigh and folded her arms across her chest. “I mean come on if the shoe was on the other foot would you believe me?”
“I would try.” Aamina said acidly.
“Well as much as I would like to. It’s a bit too much to wrap my head around.”
“Look I have to go Yas. I’ve missed the last two days of work and I don’t want to miss anymore so I‘m going to go home and get ready.” Aamina said standing to leave.
“Aww, Aamina don’t be angry with me.”Yasmin said standing up to stop Aamina from leaving. “I want to believe you really I do. In the meantime why don’t you drop that history class? You don’t have to continue it on my account.”
“No I’m no quitter, I’ll just avoid dream boy at all costs. See ya later, Yas.”
I'm having a rough week. Not really accomplishing very much, due to the fact that I am dealing with a pretty severe cold. Since I have two jobs being Mommy and being an author I had to choose which one I could keep up with while trying to deal with said cold. As I have mentioned before in previous blogs, I have a two year old daughter who requires most of my energy and time so I made an executive decision to be mommy only while I nurse my cold. The problem is, is that I miss writing so I am not sure how much longer I can hold off on writing. I think I am going to try to get some work done today. If I can just stop coughing long enough to type without making too many ridiculous mistakes. Also while getting so much needed rest the other night, most likely a little high on cough syrup I had a dream that gave me my next idea for a good book to start writing but it is probably several month down the line, because I have to finish Part one of Shift and then the is Passion's Storm followed by Book two of Shift. I may work on it after that.
As I said I have so much to do and so very little time to do it. I'm going to do and take some Day Quil and drink some tea and tune out Wonder Pets and try getting some much needed work done. So wishing my headphones weren't broken because Wonder Pets is proving to be almost impossible to block out. Someone save me from preschool television.
I have been working so very hard on shift in the hopes that I can have it done by the end of November. I am enjoying the story line a lot. I really can't wait to complete it so that I can get feedback from readers. I would have to say that this is indeed the hardest part of writing for me. Not being able to write it fast enough. But I don't want to rush it. I want it to be perfect before I put it out. So I have to practice patience which is not one of my strongest points but I am trying. I think I will be doing a cover reveal soon or maybe a teaser but I haven't decided yet. So we will see.
Every now and the during the day I have to take a break from write and do something pointless. So today I was trolling facebook as I often do when I'm board and I came across one the those little pictures with the snarkie phrases on it and this one said something about moves like Jagger. A song a happen to like the only problem is now the song is stuck in my head and I can't stop singing it so I figured the only remedy to this is to pass it on so I am going to attach the video to this blog in the hopes that it gets stuck in someone else's head and gets out of mine. Enjoy, I'm getting back to work.
My book has finally gone live on ibookstore. I am thrilled. Also just found out today that I sold my first book in Great Britain. I am now international. I am so excited. I have been working on my next book which to me has a very interesting plot. I can't wait to get this book out onto my computer screen, so that I can get it out to my readers. This will be my first sci-fi novel. I am experimenting with a new genre. I couldn't help it though. If you have read my previous blogs you know that I have no control over the stories that come out of my head. The characters tell me the story I just put it on paper. But the way that this story is playing out in my head has me riveted. I am looking forward to seeing how readers will like it . As far as google books goes I am still waiting. *sigh* Oh well whatever will be will be. I'll keep you posted.
