Happy Holidays! Onward and Upward

So much has happened in 2014 that it is a bit bittersweet to see it close. So much in my writing world has been accomplished. Some of those celebratory moments weren't planned, but were opportunities that I stepped up and grabbed, while, for other milestones, they were part of my goal plans.

For The Readers in 2014

  • Into The Pride was my first foray in urban fantasy, which earned an Evernight Reader's Choice award. 

  • One of A Kind (1st book of Meadows Family), published with Kimani Romance, featuring four cousins and their bid to be independent and finding love on their own terms.

  • Part of the Executive Assistant anthology, as Michelle Rhys, an erotic romance set in the corporate boardroom.

  • Carnival Temptress, part of the Revelers series, on my self-pub platform.

  • Part of the free Tiny Treats Holiday micro reads with A Holiday Miracle.

  • Read and recommended over 150 books for the USA Today Happy Ever Blog

Behind the scenes:

  • Finished writing two out of three novellas for Boroughs Publishing
  • Participated in NaNo with a 50K word (rough draft) book completed
  • Jotting down ideas, collecting several research books for big project.

And what does 2015 bring?

So far it will be...

  • On self-pub platform: Something To Hold, Making Promises, Island Rendezvous (backlist from BET Arabesque books by end of January)

  • One To Love (March), which is the 2nd book of the Meadows family series.

  • Two of three novellas from Boroughs Publishing to hit digital shelves. Release date to be announced.

  • Participating in St. Patrick's Day Tiny Treats Holiday Collection.

  • Participating in 12 Alphas/ 12 Months multi-author box set (July); sequels to my story will be in separate box set in September

  • Participating in Bad Boys on Vacation multi-author box set (July); sequels to story will be in separate box set in September
I look forward to continuing reading and recommending books for USA Today Happy Ever After Book club. And you can be sure that I'm also working on a variety of projects, behind the scenes. Thank you for your support. Feel free to join my newsletter email list to keep updated with my busy schedule.

All the best,

  1. I just found out about the passing of one of my friends, Monica Harris Mindolovich. I met Monica in camp and spent many summers getting to know her. We went to different high school, but still had contact until after college. I had been searching for her for years, but there are so many people named Monica Harris! I enjoyed reading the article/obituary that you wrote about her and just wanted to say ‘thank you’. She was such a beautiful woman inside and out and it sounded like she had a good friend in you.
