It’s a super day, and I’ll tell you why: my holiday short, Unexpected, is live and kicking! I have never kicked off the holiday season so early, but I really needed it, and I hope others that need some holiday cheer will find it in my cute and fun little ditty. A few people may recognize this short from a story I posted on my website a few years ago. It’s been niggling at me because… whatever happened to Will and Saidah?? So I took it down, retooled and updated and added chapters. It’s a very sweet, holiday themed, feel good story that I hope new and seasoned readers will enjoy! The book will be available for purchase on Amazon as well as Kobo, Barnes & Noble and iBooks. This means it will NOT be available via Kindle Unlimited. You can reach all of those stores with this handy dandy universal link: Unexpected. As soon as the book is available on other platforms, they’ll pop up there, so if your fave platform isn’t available, hang in there and check back! For today’s Writing Wednesday, I’m posting chapter one of Unexpected. I hope you’re intrigued and plan to snap it up and enjoy! “I don’t know why you’re being so difficult, Saidah. Just put on some clothes, run a brush through your hair and come over.” “Maybe I don’t want to go over there. Maybe I want to sit on my couch and watch A Christmas Story back to back while I drink myself into oblivion.” As if I needed to prove my point, I loudly sipped from my mug of spiked hot chocolate. “That’s the exact reason you need to bring your behind over here. You don’t need to be by yourself on Christmas. Especially on Christmas.”
I was thinking about SAME TIME NEXT WEEK recently, a book I don’t talk much about because it was my foray into interracial romance and it pretty much flopped. Not that the book isn’t good (because it is), but I didn’t and still really don’t know how to market this book. So while I am writing, I am trying to pop up some interest in a title that hasn’t received much attention but definitely deserves it.
