So, if you didn’t make it to Indie Love (or you made it but didn’t get to my table), I have a few books leftover that I’d love to get rid of! I would even be willing to place an order for additional books if readers are interested. Check out this post for details on how to order signed books.
One of the things I love and admire about this Indie Biz is how we support and push each other. We all win when we’re all out front, our voices being heard and our art being consumed. I stumbled on Eliza David just a few short months ago and she is a (petty, vicious, delicious)TREAT! Eliza was kind enough to feature me on her blog today! I recently read her ah-mayyy-ziiinnngg novel The Follow (ya’ll know I’m a stone cold sucka for a rock romance) and I gave it high praise. So happy to have ‘met’ Eliza… thank you for giving me a little corner of your world today! Click the banner to visit ElizaDavidWrites and read all about meeeee!

I recently did a guest interview with author/blogger Cheryl Holloway. I talked about my writing process, the Ruby’s series that wasn’t supposed to be a series and my fave character to write, ever!
Trying to use all of my venues to speak to the people about the writerly things. I decided to hop on YouTube and run my mouth about the book I’m ALMOST DONE WRITINGGGGG.
Click it to watch, and I will record more.
I haven’t been sharing anything about my new project because I wasn’t (and still am not) sure it was going to take off… but sometimes you just have to put your author pants on (or take them off? Authors don’t like pants!) and stick your neck out there. So I’m sharing a snip today. Hope you like it!

When Ameenah Porter moves to the quaint beach town of Black Diamond Isles to fulfill her dream of opening her own smoothie shop, she encounters a man who is tall, dark and extremely handsome with a wicked taste for orange flavored beverages. She doesn’t need the distraction of a new man but Wade, who’s staying in the giant sized home at the end of her block, is irresistible.
Soon, Wade is a regular fixture at Tikis & Cream and while her days are busy, her nights sizzle.
Wade Marshall was supposed to spend the summer on Black Diamond Isles getting away from the city, ridding himself of the distractions that had been impacting his work. When he meets his bold, beautiful, sexy neighbor with the “glorious hips” and a penchant for ice cream, he tries hard to resist, but the attraction wins him over.
There’s only one problem: Wade is returning to Brooklyn at the end of the summer. Ameenah lives on Black Diamond. If they give into their desires, it has to be with the understanding that this fling is just that… a Beach Thing.
As the end of summer on Black Diamond nears, will they run from what they feel, or admit what they’ve known all along?
This book has been very much a slow burn. It did not hit hard like I thought it would. For a long time I considered pulling it because as popular as IR books are, it just wasn’t getting any attention. I’m glad I’m too lazy to do things like pull books down though, because over time it has been read and reviewed and pretty well received, so… YAY!
