Well, now what??

I just added two deadlines for the sequel to "Paradise Taken" and my new book on goodreads.com.  Hmm.....this could cause a meltdown.  :)

I mean, teaching school and writing.....it's nuts!  But, there is a small group of you who actually want the second book to be completed and out there to read.  I am working on it to make it just right for you!  Hang in there.  I can't rush Kaye and Jake!

Want a little something from my new book?

This is NOT part of book #2 of "Paradise Taken."
This is a brand new standalone book I'm working on.....

Chapter 1 – Jen
I hated going to these stupid functions!  Weird guys with slicked-back hair and way too much cologne on gave me the creeps.  If it weren’t for my boss, I wouldn’t be here.  But, when he asked me to come in his place while he was gone out of the country, I couldn’t say no.  He’d never asked me to go to anything in his place, so I saw this as a positive sign that he was beginning to have confidence in me and my abilities.  Hell, I’d only worked for the crazy bastard for six years!  It was about time he recognized my strengths.


I noticed him walking toward my table, impassive face and stiff body language.  I was hoping he would pass on by because as good looking as he was, he looked like a total ass and I didn’t want to be stuck with a pompous jerk for the evening.  But, as luck would have it, he sat down directly across from me with barely a nod of acknowledgement.  Wow, how did this guy get a job in marketing?  What does he sell….sticks to shove up assholes?  That made me almost laugh out loud.  Nice one, Jen!  I silently patted myself on the back.  


Chapter 2 - Rylan
She was very beautiful.  I hadn’t seen her at any of the dinners before.  I found her sitting at the same table with me.  When she looked straight at me, I froze not knowing what to say.  Thankfully, some of the awkwardness went away as soon as Jim showed up and began his inquisition, taking her focus off me. 
I listened intently all evening to learn more about her.  What I learned was that she worked for a rival ad agency and had impeccable people skills.  She didn’t skip a beat keeping up with all the macho crap at our table and I was pretty impressed. 
She looked close to my age and judging by her conversation with Jim Davis, she was well educated and worked hard.  Knowing Michael like I did, he'd obviously seen her talent and respected her abilities enough to send her in here with all these sharks.   
I sat quietly most of the night, as usual.  I rarely saw a need in mindless, meaningless conversation anymore.  It served no purpose to me even though I did enjoy listening to it.  It occupied my mind and kept me focused on the present…on life.  


You guys are amazing!

After putting the book on sale Wednesday, I've sold 88 in 4 days!

Thank you for supporting my work!


"Paradise Taken" is on sale on Kindle this week for 99¢!!!!!!


I'll be reading AND writing this weekend while basking in the sun!  Check out my current reading selection on goodreads.com.

Oh, here's a little something extra for y'all.....

"I stared at her for a long time, studying her face.  She was so beautiful.  The fact that she was taking care of me now just amplified her beauty.  It was like I was seeing her brand new, for the first time.  My wife…."

My Jake...and a little teaser from book #2!

Love this picture of my "Jake and Kaye!"  *Sigh*
Little teaser here.....from Jake.

"I opened my bag slowly and found the most beautiful words I could have imagined.

“Hi, baby!  We love you and
 are here waiting for you! 
Love, K (and YOUR baby)”                 

I felt the air suddenly leave my lungs and I couldn’t move.  I wanted to be with both of them right at that moment.  I felt sick for leaving her…for leaving them.

Ahh....the weekend!

Planning on lots of writing again this weekend.  Working on book 2 of "Paradise Taken" and my new novel (that I think you'll love).

Waiting till the end of the month to put out teasers for "Jake's" book.  ;)

If any of you purchased the book and enjoyed it, please go rate and review it on goodreads.com, amazon.com or iBooks.  

Just a tidbit...

There is a character in "Paradise Taken" that is related to me.  ;)
