What to do when your best friend the rock star wants to act like Florence Nightingale

Kae and The RageHey, guys. I’m on my way to see Endgame. Finally. I’ve been waiting for this and dodging spoilers like you wouldn’t believe. But I didn’t forget to blog this week *pats self on the back*  My next young adult title Kae and The Rage will be out this month. Here’s an unedited snippet that continues from my last blog. Let me know what you think. Oh, and if you guys read my last release How to Love a Pink Demon and liked it, please leave me a great review on Amazon. I hate to beg, but it looks so unloved. Thank you!

“You sound bitter, B.”

“I bloody well am. I feel like he’s got my balls in a vise, and I want out.” Continue reading “What to do when your best friend the rock star wants to act like Florence Nightingale”

What to do when an old love doesn’t want to let go, and the new love isn’t sure she should hold on

Kae and The RagePeace. I’m getting close on this one, y’all. It will be out this month. This blog snippet picks up where last weeks left off. Billy’s inspecting Kae’s injuries and making the opening move in his bid for her hand – getting rid of an old entanglement. Let me know what you think.

She pushed down the sheet, and he whistled.

“Bloody fans,” he muttered, ghosting fingers over the dark, ugly bruise that covered nearly the entire side of her left thigh. “And here!” He touched the bruises on her left shoulder and arm.

“Cute, huh?” She joked. “You should see under my shirt.” Continue reading “What to do when an old love doesn’t want to let go, and the new love isn’t sure she should hold on”

When you feel like sh&$, there’s nothing like a visit – and a hug – from your best (guy) friend

I forgot to blog last week. WTF? Bad writer! Sorry guys. But I am determined to publish another book in the next few weeks. Here’s another unedited snippet from my next effort. It picks up where my last blog left off. And to make up for being an absentee blogger, how about a cover and title reveal in a few days? Just so you know your girl means business. *winks*

He was across the room in an instant, gently wrapping his tall, good-smelling self around her. She sighed happily. He was like a warm, comforting barrier between her and the pain that was slowly driving her crazy.

How to Love a Pink Demon is now live! She’s out, she’s out, my next book is fiiii-nally out. Phew.

I did it. I finally cut the cord. It’s only been an ice age, but How to Love a Pink Demon is live in the Amazon Kindle story. Phew! I hope you love Steele. I didn’t actually do her justice. She’s seriously much better in my head. We’re talking the black, female Jason Bourne sans … Continue reading How to Love a Pink Demon is now live! She’s out, she’s out, my next book is fiiii-nally out. Phew.

Steele: Business and money should never be personal.

PINK_Demon_FinalHi guys –

I’m determined to release this sucker next week, so I can move on to my next project. I gotta speed up production! I’m also going to officially move my blog posting date to Saturday. Wednesday hasn’t happened in awhile, and backdating is lame. So, we’ll see how I do. Meantime, here’s another snippet where the last one leaves off. Let me know what you think!

XOXO

Tommy called later to confirm she’d come tomorrow to meet Miles and sign the papers.

“That soon?”

“Yup. He’s the no time like the present type, likes to keep busy. You’ll like him.”

Steele raised a brow. She didn’t like anybody. Continue reading “Steele: Business and money should never be personal.”

Be careful asking for what you want. You just might get it.

PINK_Demon_FinalI am driving myself nuts. I haven’t published anything in so long, I’m having major anxiety about publishing this book. I keep thinking it needs this, it needs that. Arrrghhh! I have gotta cut the cord. Until I do, here’s another snippet for you where the last one leaves off…

XOXO,

SS

Tommy laughed. “I know, it sounds typical, but he’s a big name over there. And he’s not doing bad since he branched out over here either. The Hollywood Foreign Press said he’s got the Midas touch, talent and the ability to not only pick great roles, but ones that increase his star power exponentially with each and every film.”

“You sound like his American press agent.” Continue reading “Be careful asking for what you want. You just might get it.”

Why I used the N word in my latest erotic paranormal romance novel.

PINK_Demon_FinalHey y’all. I don’t want you to be surprised when you buy this latest offering in my Demon Series and see some tough language – the n word specifically.

The word has evolved considerably, been essentially taken back by black people, which I’ve always found extraordinary. But it’s still emotionally charged, full of shitty historical context and wrathful feelings most black and white folks would gladly leave by the wayside forever. But its modern iteration is still perfect for this particular book.

My heroine Steele explains it briefly in the book, asking our hero Miles to look up the word niggardly in the dictionary.

The word doesn’t appear often in the book, and when it does it’s in very natural conversational situations. I know people these days tend to go from 0 to 100 for even the slightest offense. It’s doubtful this blog will allay that sort of response completely if folks are determined to go down that road. But at least this little preface is here for those who care to look, read and understand. Continue reading “Why I used the N word in my latest erotic paranormal romance novel.”
