by DL White Genres: African American Romance, Contemporary, Romance Format: eBook Source: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ibooks, Kobo Good morning and happy Writing Wednesday! 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 […]
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.
Happy Indie Author Day, 2017! Believe it or not, this is my FIRST Indie Author Day. I heard rumblings about it in years before, but never paid attention or celebrated it. The libraries in my city don’t participate so it’s not a Real Life thing, strictly in this online world. I figured I should jump in this year and celebrate, since my feet have planted firmly in self published soil. A few authors are talking about what this day means to them. For me, one word resonates. Freedom. The idea of contracting with a publisher and agreeing to all of their terms, the slow publishing cycle,not having control over […]
I decided to do a lil TuesdayTease of Leslie’s Curl & Dye, since it’s Tuesday and the book is out! Snatch it up Amazon, or read it free with your Kindle Unlimited subscription. Enjoy! I drank my iced coffee, looking around the room that was a shrine to his old life. “You probably get asked this a hundred times a day, but do you miss the court?” He started to nod, then grimaced. “I mostly miss being on a team, traveling, playing for TV cameras, whatever. I was kind of a ham.” “Yes, you were,” fell out of my mouth before I could stop myself from saying it. But he […]

Hey everyone! I am knee deep in edits for Leslie’s Curl & Dye. While stuck in traffic I took a few mins to ramble about my upcoming release. Look for it, coming soon!
Hello there! For anyone that is interested in my August results since my post on how I was making more of a marketing effort, I have some numbers! Technically I should wait until tomorrow but the change in books sold and $ amount will be miniscule and I wanted to look at the numbers today. First, let’s look at June and July. I blot out $$ amounts but you can figure it out if you’re good at maffs. What’s important to me is # of books sold and pages read. 30/98K in June and 29/59K in July. Not stellar, by my own personal standards. An average of $5 to $15 […]
I know, this is your favorite topic, right? Right after writer’s block and right before the discussion about whether romances have to have a happy ending. But seriously. Let’s talk about it. “Millions of people want to read your book.” -Chris Fox I have been publishing since 2015, stumbling through most of it like a newborn deer, making an okay chunk of money here and there but for the most part, coasting along and making pizza money. You know, that deposit from Amazon that could cover a nice large pie and maybe some garlic knots from your fave pizza joint. I kind of got sick of working so hard for […]
