It’s happening.

Lovely souls,

I think this needs a slight explanation. I’m sure more of you all were excited about the massive WIP list for me, and I was also. Things happen. Life happens. So, with that said, as of now, my SLEEP SWEETLY SERIES is complete. You have SLEEP SWEETLY & the side short, technically Book 2.

I thought I could write all the things and be ‘superwoman’. I quickly found out that is NOT the case. As of today, until probably next year, I’m taking a much-needed break from writing, as well as social media.

Releasing 4 stories within my first year of being a published author, permanently axing two story ideas isn’t going to keep me down for too long. Just a few months.

February 2018 you will receive my next to-be-published work. Hopefully, this time will be a time of reflection, rest, rejuvenation, and I’ll be stronger than I was this year.

I know most writers take a much longer break than I am taking. I know some need shorter to recoup.

You may see some posts about work of other author friend’s of mine. So, my website will be active. I just won’t be updating you personally.

At any rate, I will be thinking of you. I hope you will be thinking of and praying for me.

Until next time…

Keep flying high,

Superhumans, girls, and…

Hi, lovely souls!

Happy Wednesday! How are you all? I hope you are well. So, what am I going to talk about today? I’m going to give you a little peek into the lives of the other two heroines within the Sleep Sweetly Series. Universe? Series.

Oh, right! That’s right. I’ve made a few, small changes to the cover of Sleep Sweetly.

1. Sleep Sweetly Book 1 Cover

See? 🙂 Small.

Well, there are two more books within the Sleep Sweetly Series. And in the back of Book 1, I added the first chapter for the second book (a side short, really)- SWEET DREAMS. Seeing as this story is a side short, I’ve decided to place it on pre-order. The link should be live soon! 😀 I will update this post when the link is live. 

I’m here to talk about the girls… and their superpowers! Yes, the other two girls in this series are superhuman….. (Ooooohhhh!!!)

We see Teagan’s power unveiled in the side short, SWEET DREAMS. She’s got the ability to harness and unleash lightening and create storms as a means of defense and protection.

In book 2, my heroine Paisley’s power in all things water. Aqua-woman, if you will. Her story will be a WIP sometime next month.

So, do any of you write superhero stories? Seeing as this is my first time venturing into this sub genre of fantasy, I’m excited.

Any tips? Tricks? Leave me a comment below! 😀

Have a wonderful Wednesday, lovely souls!

Until next time!

Writing all the things…

Hi, lovely souls!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are well.

As I eluded in  Facebook post, I’m going to try my hand at all the things. And today, I’m going to break those projects down even more for you.

*This is my writing line-up, not my publishing line-up. All release dates will be kept between me, myself, and I, as I do not want to up a date out there and not deliver to you.* 

2017: (4)

  1. Book 2 in a series. Which series? What series? I thought you were a standalone author, Angel. Not so! I’m continuing a dearly beloved book… One that I had fun creating the world for. I’m sure you all know which book I’m referring to 😉 More info on that to come later. 
  2. Book 3 is series above.
  3. Book 3 in a collection of contemporary standalones. You’ll be familiar with Blake and Samantha from TRUST ME  soon. They have decided they aren’t done with me, yet. So, there will be two more books within that universe. 

2018: (2)

  1. Super secret project 1: another fantasy book. That’s all I’m going to say. 
  2. Super secret project 2: another contemporary. This one *might* be within the TRUST Me universe. 

2019: information to come.

 

So, I know I’m still being super evasive, but I hope you’re just as excited as I am for my writing journey!

Thoughts? Am I doing too much?

Until next time, lovely souls!

Keep flying high!

OH! Wait! I’m thinking of starting an exclusive, limited membership street/launch team. Yay? Nay? More information on this to come (if I decide to do it!)

Book 1: Nowhere To Run
How did a text message lead to blood on her hands?

Melanie Pittman never should’ve responded to the message her boss sent, demanding she join the festivities at his mansion. With her job on the line, she showed up, only to flee moments later, covered in her boss’s blood.
And his son had watched her flee.

She’d known his willingness to not turn her in was too good to be true. Now he’s blackmailing her: sex for silence. The only thing making this situation worse was the fact that she enjoyed the things he did to her. The way he handled her body, the dirty things he said to her, she loved it all, even though she knew he would never think of her as anything other than a toy he could play with, manipulate. He held her freedom in his hands.

And now his older, more ruthless brother knows what she’s done.
What will it take to keep him silent?

Book 1 Excerpt:

He walked away from the table, needing some air. He had to find her back door. Mason stormed down the hallway. How dare she ask him how long this would last? However long he wanted it to.
She was in no position to ask questions or negotiate. Mason unlocked her back door and pulled it open. He sucked in a deep breath as he stepped out onto the porch. It was cold as hell and here he was standing on a porch with no jacket on.
Shoving his hands into his pockets, he stared up at the sky. He should’ve just stayed at home. After having her read a passage from her book to him, he’d been ready to see her. So, he’d called his brother and moved up their meeting which had only lasted ten minutes and ended with them yelling at each other.
Nothing new there. The only new thing was his desire to be here, near her. What the fuck was wrong with him? She was right. They didn’t know each other. She’d given him head once. He’d investigated her and seen her around the office.
Other than that, there was nothing he knew about her except that she was capable of murder. Other than her curves, there was no reason he should feel this insane need to be with her. She wasn’t even his type.
Yet, he’d dreamed about her. He’d dream about his mom also. In his dream, he’d introduced Melanie to his mom and they’d gotten along perfectly. Hell, even her and Damian had gotten along, in his dream.
“Hey. Mason.”
He turned to find her standing in the doorway clad in loose fitting jeans and a Chicago Cubs sweater. His dream girl. She was beautiful. She looked so sweet and innocent. Nothing like what he was used to. Mason cleared his throat.
“You ready?”
She shook her head. “I have a few more things to pack. I just wanted to tell you that uh, the reason I asked how long this would last…”
“Not this again.” Mason turned to stare at the backyard once more.
“It’s just that, I visit my grandmother once a week. I don’t know what it is you’re going to want me to do. Well, I know some of it, just not all of it. Anyway, will I still be able to visit my grandma?”
Her grandma. He’d forgotten about her.
Mason nodded.
“Thank you. And uh, that’s where I was yesterday. I waited on you to call. When you didn’t, I went to visit my grandma. I turned my phone off while I was at the nursing home.”
He felt like an ass. He nodded again.
“Okay,” she said. He could hear her stepping away from the door. “I’m going to finish packing. I’ll be quick.”
Mason stared over his shoulder at her retreating form. “Melanie.”
She stopped in the hall and glanced over her shoulder. “Yeah?”
“Take your time. You don’t have to rush.”
She smiled. It was a small smile, but it was still a smile. Probably the first real smile she’d ever aimed at him. She nodded then continued walking down the hallway. Mason faced the backyard once more.
What was it about Melanie Pittman that had him yearning for another one of her smiles?

This writer is….

You guessed it, lovely souls.

I’m experiencing writer burn out. For real, this time. I guess the hype and excitement from finally publishing my first book, then the second book baby, and waiting for my third book baby to go live on July 12th of this year… has gotten to me.

I tried to start a new story yesterday, and the words just were not flowing. I blame myself, partly. And I also blame other issues I shall not discuss.

Why do I blame myself? I haven’t given myself the proper time to ‘stop and smell roses‘, so to speak. I haven’t given myself time to just… breathe and enjoy the fruits of my labor. I’ve wanted this… dreamed of becoming a published author for YEARS. DECADES even.

And I need to celebrate the fact that in nearly a month and a half, I have published 2 books, with a third on the way. My first year as an author, I’ve published 3 books. That’s incredible and amazing, and so very humbling. I still am in awe every time I go to Amazon and type my name into the search bar.

It’s still so surreal. I pray it always will be.

I said all of that to say this: I’m on hiatus for a few months. No writing. Tons of reading (which started this morning. My backlist of TBR books is HUGE, and they are waiting for me). And lastly?

Enjoying my time and basking in the beauty of the title of published author.

Have any of you dealt with (or are currently dealing with) writer burn out? Any tips?

I know this isn’t a happy-go-lucky, uplifting post, but I just wanted to be transparent with you.

I hope you understand (and relate, if applicable).

Catch you around, lovely souls.

Until…

Keep flying high!

#SneakPeek of TRUST ME…

Hi, lovely souls.

How are you?

As you all may, or may not, know my third book baby TRUST ME is now available for pre-order and is coming soon!!! 😀 I’m excited for you all to meet Blake and Samantha. So excited that I have a sneak peek for you all!

Let me know what you think? Any and all feedback is appreciated!

Enjoy a little bit of Blake & Samantha:

Blake

“You look good, man. You look fantastic.”

I laughed out loud, running my hands over my mouth, wiping away the crumbs along my lips. I didn’t say a word as Quanell Warner walked into my office. I finished the last of my chicken hoagie in peace while looking my friend over.

Light, butterscotch skin. Cropped fade with light waves. Tall, yet stocky. Quanell, known around town as “Q”, had all the ladies running wild, except for one- his ex-wife Mila. With his bright blue eyes, he was a heartthrob and had a habit of being called a ‘panty-melter’. A true player, through and through; since his divorce from Mila was final.

It pained my heart. I thought they would work it out after she had confessed to cheating on him. Q had seemed to move past it, but… I know now that wasn’t the case. He loved Mila, his high school sweetheart. They had met when he was only seventeen and she was fifteen.

But they weren’t destined to last.

“Appreciate that, man,” I responded, before twisting the cap from my bottled water and lifting it to my lips, welcoming the ice, cold drink. “What brings you by?” I asked, before setting the bottle down on my desk, leaning back in my chair, stretching my back.

My hands fell to my large, black desk, folded together.

“Just wanted to check in with you. That’s all.” His deep voice rumbled through my office, and I glanced out the window to my right.

My office was simple. Clean. Two bookcases that lined the right wall, filled. An extra desk, glass; containing a laptop and a printer for when I felt like switching up from my desk. Black, square armchairs- four of them- placed in a semi-circle in the middle of my office. Abstract paintings lined the four corners of my office, too.

A smile touched my lips, as I rose from my chair to greet my boy, who stepped into my office.

“You know you’re always welcome here, Q,” I said, before dapping my boy up, grinning at him.

He scratched his growing stubble, glancing down at me. Compared to my six-foot, two-inch frame, Quanell had two inches on me, standing at six-foot, five inches. The guy could have been a baller and was.

Truth be told, that was where the breakdown in his and Mila’s marriage started and what caused their demise. They didn’t hate each other; they didn’t communicate with each other. I didn’t blame them. Finding out the love of your life cheated on you and had a baby by another man was a tough pill to swallow, even tougher when that man was your ex-husband’s brother.

Mila was shady like that. But it wasn’t my place to condemn her.

“Just stopping through before you head out?”

Quanell chuckled. “Bro, you know how it is.”

I did.

Q seemed to do well for himself. Traveling around the world as one of the top ballers worldwide. He even was dating again, taking things slow. I knew deep down he didn’t want to risk another heartbreak. Enough though he fronted like he could have any woman he wanted, and even messed around with several after he confronted Mila about her cheating, Quanell was a soft, tender-hearted guy.

“Where to now?” I chuckled, as he walked over to my desk.

“France.”

I nodded. “Awesome! I’ll lift prayers up.”

“You already know. Thank you, B. I… uh…”

He looked away from me, opting to fix his attention on the zooming cars outside my office window instead.

“You ‘uh’ what?” I questioned, chuckling.

“I ran into your girl a few weeks back. She looked good, B. Still doing her thing down at the hospital. Still…” he let whatever else he would say trail off, and I was grateful for that.

The air that had once filled my lungs was now deflating them, and I rushed over to my desk, as fast as my feet would carry me, my hands gripping the bottle of water. I drank until the bottle was empty. My eyes closed, and her face came to mind.

I exhaled.

Inhaled.

Exhaled again.

Inhaled again.

Until I could hear my heart beating within my ears. Until I felt normal, not like my body was off kilter. My hands shook, as I ran my right hand along the back of my neck and squeezed hard.

“You all right, Blake?” Quanell asked, placing a hand on my left shoulder.

I opened my eyes, as my brown irises met his blue ones.

I released another slow breath.

“Yeah, Q. I’m good, man. I….” My own words trailed off, but that wasn’t lost on Q.

“You miss her, don’t you?”

I chuckled, hearing my laugh as it ricocheted off the walls of my office.

“Yeah, man. I miss her.”

Happy Tuesday, lovely souls! I hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day! Seeing as it’s #TeaserTuesday, I thought I’d bring you one.

This one is from my debut book baby: SLEEP SWEETLY.

Share your thoughts with me? 🙂

She sighed. It had been a year since the moment she found herself waking up in this part of the woods. A deep cove of nothing but trees and moss, hidden away from the rest of the wild, crazy forest. It offered her comfort, or at least that was how she felt the first few times.
Now, she needed answers.
She needed for him to set her free. Instantly.
Because the sleepless nights, or the times when she would wake up in cold sweats, weren’t cutting it anymore.
People around her thought she was crazy. She kept her head down, conversations short (apart from conversing with Jamie). She was open to him, now that Jerome had died. More open, really.
And as Riley closed her eyes, listening to the still, quiet of the forest, she felt him. Felt Jerome standing behind her.
“I’m right here, Rome. What do you want, babe? What do you want from me?” Her voice was barely above a whisper, as she opened her eyes a moment later.
Turning around, her eyes met pitch black. More darkness everywhere she looked. For miles, there was nothing but the darkness of night, yielding more time without Jerome speaking to her.
But she felt him.
She.
Felt.
Him.
“Jerome?” she called out to him again, her voice rising in pitch. Her entire body bent over, pressed toward the ground until she was laying with her right cheek to the Earth; her knees touching her chest. She whispered his name over and over… Until she swore she could hear his heart beating. Until she succumbed to the exhaustion of crying, accompanied by the heaviness behind her eyelids.
She wasn’t afraid to close her eyes and dream.
