Aggravated Momentum Blurb:

Not everything is as it seems in what appears to be an average family. When danger lurks so close to home, skeletons emerge, and the darkest of secrets surface, causing twisted desires to become reality. Aggravated Momentum offers the perspective of some very diverse and unique characters, including fun, witty personalities to fall in love with, along with an intellectual killer to die for. You may be surprised as to whom exactly you can relate. Is it the cold, calculated murderer, who’s name is yet to be revealed? Markie or Kam, the independent sisters, guilty of nothing more than getting tangled with the wrong people at the most inopportune times? Or, the cowardly snake curled in a hidden corner? Who are you, exactly? And, more importantly, who are they? The deeper you dig into the psyche of another, the more breath taking are the secrets you will find.

A Stranger In France Blurb:

AWARDED BEST ROMANCE NOVEL 2017! BY VIRTUAL FANTASY CON AWARDS.
In A Stranger in France readers are taken on a fast paced, modern day romantic journey, that spans across the city of London, the glitz and glam of France, and the beautiful English coast. There’s enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat turning pages.

Career driven and successful thirty two year old Kate Brown travels to southern France to visit her best friend Tanya Adams, for a well deserved short break, and to forget her worries in London. Her path crosses with tall, dark, devilishly handsome and wealthy Nicholas D’Coix. As a young man, Nicholas turned himself around and built an empire of wealth, he’s now one of Paris’ top three entrepreneurs. In a whirlwind of steamy romance Nicholas and Kate fall in love.

Kate returns to London leaving Nicholas behind and the two are still very much in love. Kate faces a few surprises of her own on her return to London. She makes a bold life changing move, to make the most of her life changing dilemma. Touching on real life issues these two strong characters battle it out, against all the odds in the name of love for a beautiful happy ever after.

Making 2018 Our Bitch #writers #poem

Having been an independent and traditionally published author I have to say I enjoy doing things my way!! Great poem Didi!!

Didi Oviatt

To the Independent writers who charge each New Year,

With a fresh boost of confidence overpowering the cheer.

We lower our brows and draw conscious breath,

There’s no room for stagnancy we’ll write till the death.

The independent road’s rough, it’s yet to be paved, 

We hustle and work to make our own way.

Our bodies know nothing of rest or of sleep,

Our brains are too busy to let in the weak.

 Sometimes we’re distracted and sometimes we get weird,

Our projects have tendency to be permanently seared.

Our characters take over our personalities and minds,

We can never escape them its all part of the grind.

As the New Year approaches so does that itch,

And the confidence is cranked to make 2018 our BITCH!!

Happy writing, Indi-warriors!! The New Year is approaching and I can’t wait to see what it brings!! I know I have big plans…

T’is The Eve Before New Years Eve: Thank You Every Follower, Reader, Voter, Book Reviewer. Here’s What’s Next In 2018! #gratitude #amwriting #newyearseve

 

So it’s the eve before New Years Eve (for me in my part of the world). I have no idea what I want to write, all I know is I want to say thank you. I’ll just write what comes to mind to you all. This time of year I always get so reflective (even more than I normally am as a person),  I look back and think what have I learned, gained, lost, survived etc. But most of all I always ask myself what I am grateful for? The answer to this is you! Yes, you reading this, you make my list of gratitude.

I started blogging in 2016, just before my first novel A Stranger In France was about to be released. I did it just on a whim as I read ‘ that’s what authors do’ I had no clue what I was doing, but I started to have a lot of fun, I have connected with so many great people that I would not have, if it were not for WordPress. Over the past year and a bit my blog has grown, I’ve grown as a person, writer, mother and I want to thank:

  • Anyone who reads this.
  • Every Twitter, FB and blog follower.
  • Anyone who has liked or shared my rambles and posts.
  • Everyone who has read and reviewed anything I’ve wrote.
  • Every one who has read or even taken an interest in my writing and stories.
  • Every single one of you who voted for me and my work in the summer ,when my novel was nominated for the award ‘ Best Romance 2017’ by Virtual Con Literary Awards. I can’t believe I was even nominated, let alone managed to claim that title!!
  • A personal big thank you to my writing buddy, co-author and girlfriend from afar place Suspense and Thriller author Didi Oviatt. Who I love to bits.
  • Every author I that has allowed me to interview them for Meet The Author features. It’s be an honour to feature you all.
  • I am not religious much more spiritual, but I do ‘believe’ if that makes sense in some kind of universe power and higher being, that guides and protects us. I want to say thank you universe, for giving me such a challenging but rewarding year in 2017. And lining up things so that as of next year I can spend more  of my time doing what I love writing!!
  • I want to thank my mum. She is the most strongest, kindest, and  most understanding and supportive being I know. I’m the daughter of an immigrant,she  left the Caribbean  then came to the UK with nothing! But has shown me exactly what you can achieve with hard work. Even when your back is up against the wall and the shit has more than hit the fan. Thanks Mum.
  • I want to thank my four year old boy. 🙂 ahhh! That boy, he makes me smile so much. He has changed my life so much for the better. I can’t even imagine life without him he is my #1 thing I am grateful for, up there with my health.

So, that’s the end of 2017…. I can’t say I’m sorry to say good bye to it, it has been a very challenging year for me personally, but fantastic for writing. All though personally I don’t think I was as productive as I would have liked to have been. But like I said on the eve of New Years Eve, I look back and would not change it. I’m pumped up for 2018……. so what’s next.

  1. Finish  writing volume #2 of The Suspenseful Collection for January release.
  2. Go back and finish writing ‘ Once Bitten, Twice Shy’ book #3 of my Romance Set In Paradise series. Hopefully release this the end of February 2018. Try to write one or two more short stories for my Romance in The City series. First book released this month! First two chapters uploaded as a preview.
  3. Go back and finish writing my full thriller novel. I have named it but I’m not gonna share it in case I change it last moment. I say this because I started writing this thriller before I wrote A Stranger in France about three- four  years ago. I’ve chopped it, re wrote it, chopped it, switched it up tooooooooooo many times to be happy. Now I think I am happy, with about seven chapters finally! I hope to be done with it by spring/ summer 2018. Stay tuned. 🙂
  4.  I’ll let the cat out of the bag on this one, Didi and I already have volume #3 of the Suspenseful Collection outlined…. an all female line up! The kind of women?? I won’t share that as yet… stay tuned!! This one is going to be amazing to write with her.

2018 looks set to be a year of ‘ The Productive Writer’ I’m happy to say!

In advance,

Happy New Year each and every one of you. May 2018 be full of blessings, prosperity, goal achieving, happiness and good health. Thank you for your support in 2017.

Thank You
