[Review] Lust & Loyalty by Shelly Ellis

[Review] Lust & Loyalty by Shelly Ellis

This book follows Shelly Ellis’ tradition (from the Gibbons Sisters on down) of turning out books full of family drama, sizzling sex scenes and page turning, rapid fire action. I love books that make me want to pop a bag of popcorn to eat while I read. It’s like a Soap Opera, but it’s a book. This entire series is FIRE, and I already need the next book.

*Snip* Dinner at Sam’s – Just another case, Gib

So…Hiiiiii…

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!

*All the usual stuff applies… unedited, subject to change. Or not see the light of day.*



Goals Schmoals- What that year be lookin’ like?

Goals Schmoals- What that year be lookin’ like?

I hate the word goals. And I have hated the word RESOLUTION my whole life. And it’s not just the word. Nothing puts me in a deer-in-headlights stupor than the practice of listing out things I want to do in a year. I have NO IDEA, people.

But… everyone’s doing it. And I don’t want it to seem like Im not thinking about my future, because “what I’m gonna do next” is always on my mind.

So… I couldn’t get my isht together enough to write a short for Christmas this year. However, I am giving the story I wrote last year, titled ALL APOLOGIES, another turn in the spotlight. Maybe I will come up with something short in the very near future. Until then, please enjoy a rerun of All Apologies! Click HERE, to read the PDF or download a mobi, epub version for your e-reader. ENJOY! Saidah’s Christmas memories have been warped by personal tragedy. Will wants to help her reshape her feelings about the holiday season. This short is rated R for language and does not contain sexual content.



[VIDEO] New Channel. WHO DIS? Intro & My books are on SALE!

I thought I would try out this VLOGGING thing, something new to dip into for the new year. Soon to be chock full of new info about books I’m writing and reading and my thoughts on writerly bookerly things… but for right now, I wanted to post a (terribly lit) introduction and take advantage of a good hair day. I recorded this three times so I was definitely not coming back another time to do it again because I didn’t like the lighting. Lessons learned! There are two videos posted on my newly launched AuthorlyBookerly channel. It doesn’t have one of them fancy newfangled custom URLs yet and it won’t until I hit 100 subscribers, so……………SUBSCRIBE!
