Special Ops News and Information
Delta Force has been released a little over a month now. People have met Logan and enjoyed his story. Heartache followed by becoming a stubborn asshole to meeting the woman of his dreams who changes his life forever... Well let's say Delta Force invokes a lot of emotion!
OMG he's a beast! -- Amazon review
Holy Hannah! I figured I read a little before I go to sleep...well I could not put this book down and finished! -- Amazon review
[She] carried him when he didn't know he was being carried. -- Amazon review
This book is full of emotions, it makes you hopeful, cry, laugh, pissed and then happy. -- Author Lily-Ann Johnson, author of Blondie's Hero
What's next? Sniper is coming out mid-summer! If you've read Delta Force then you've met Tom Brody. Brody's story is told in the next installment and let me tell you... it's HOT!! Where Logan reclaims his life in Delta Force, Brody teaches his girlfriend, Tony, how to live life in the world of BDSM!
I've been planning out book three, Ranger, recently, and this story will take me into a very dark place. As thought on this story, plotting it out, and listening to the voice of Ponce (you'll meet him in Delta Force), I'm touched, moved, and scared to death to write this story. I chatted with a friend today about his story and before I could even tell her, I was on the verge of tears. Once I gained control of myself, she went a little nuts with me! It's dark story telling, more so than I have attempted before. So a part of me is excited to venture down this unknown road, while the other is fearful to considering knocking on that door. Once the door opens and I decide to walk through it, there's no going back. That is the exciting, and fearful part of it all!
You've also seen posts where I'm writing a book with Marianne Morea. Well we're closing in on being done! It may happen this week! Dragon Master is happening and our goal is to have it ready for Authors After Dark! We're both very excited about this story and cannot wait for you to meet King Tryst, Sebastian Lord Dragon, Jamie, Luke and Rowena!
Books, Books, and more... Returns?
There's been post among post recently of authors having books bought and returned. Maybe it's because the reader doesn't like it, maybe it was a duplicate purchase (although Amazon prevents this if you've already bought the book) or maybe the cost of the book is just too much.
Is 99 cents or the amount of $3.99 too much for someone's budget? Let's take a look at this and see...
Book for $3.99 is a one time purchase fee and the ebook you get to keep for the lifetime of your Amazon (or however you read through) account. (unless Amazon et al changes their dynamic, this is the way it is.)
Maybe the toilet paper was so good, but it was $1.00 more than the average? Would you use the toilet paper then return it to the store? Of course not! How embarrassing would that be! "Excuse me, Joe Q. Public. I wiped my ass with this, but I think it should be free, so I'm returning it."
Oh, and let's not forget Starbucks. If the latte is so amazing, would you drink it, then demand your money back because it was too expensive? Would you pee and demand a refund because the latte is now out of your system and you think, "it should have been in my system at least another full day." Imagine taking a bottle of pee to the Starbucks counter... Eww... just as bad as returning poopy toilet paper. Disgusting, right?
SO WHY IS IT OKAY TO RETURN READ BOOKS? GO TO THE LIBRARY AND GET A FREE BOOK!!! Don't tell an author to make their books free! We spend a lot of our time away from home writing these stories, time away from our families, and put so much effort into them. Whether you enjoy them or not, do not steal by reading and returning. If you loved it, leave a review saying as much. If not, we'll take that one to two star over a return any day. Please, for all things holy, stop returning our books!!!
My first event is behind me for 2016, the Novel Experience Event in Atlanta. If you missed it, you sure missed a great time! My next event will be in Jacksonville on June 4th! I hope to see you there! To check out my next in person appearance, go to my events tab (click here).

That's all from me for now. It's a lot, and a lot needed to be said. Make it a fantastic day and leave that review for the books you've read, don't return them, get excited with me for Sniper and Dragon Master, and I'll see you at the next event!
Readers gonna read. Writers gonna write. LOL!
TNEE went off as a huge success!!! Delta Force sold out within the first hour! Readers who already had read the story talked non-stop about Logan! I LOVED hearing that!!! They were also asking about Brody's story. <3
During my author book talk, basically a panel of just me with the readers, someone asked me about writing about my experience having an autistic child. This was a question I was not prepared to answer. Needless to say, I broke down and cried while answering. I apologize for that, as it was not expected. I hope I did not hurt anyone with my answer. Move, yes, touch, definitely. But not hurt.
That aside, TNEE was great! The Villain's ball was AMAZING and the food? Out of this world!!! If you missed out on TNEE, there's another con you can get into and trust me, you WANT to be there! Huge announcement is coming soon! HUGE!!! I'll post about it, tweet, and share as soon as it has been released! I already know so for now, my lips are sealed!
Delta Force, Deadly Alchemy, and Fatal Intentions sold out! Southern Roots did pretty well and Clive was talked about often. I also realize it's time to start drawing back on Chronicles of the Fallen. Which is good because MORE people have it so YAY!!
Most authors did very well at TNEE. Horror authors were represented well. Even YA and NA! Oh, did I mention the Villain's ball? Seriously awesome! Check me out as Lady Loki and Milly Taiden as Madam Magneto!
If you haven't attended a Romance Ink event, you really need to consider doing so. They BROUGHT it! Aside from hotel issues, which is bound to happen, the staff made the event completely seamless! Now, onto the next event!
Check out my events page.
Next for me is Sassy in Jacksonville. This event will take place June 4th. Are you coming? I hope to see you there!!!
Saturday, June 4th, 2016 the event will be at Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront. Main event time is Saturday 12-4. Currently there is no after party scheduled so I'm setting something up private with readers, more details coming soon! Click here for more information.
After Sassy is Authors After Dark in August! This is another Romance Ink event so if you're not setup yet to attend, you NEED to be! Seriously! If you wait to see who is attending, it may be too late to get a ticket! So sign up today! Click here for more information!
Oh! Back on TNEE for a moment, readers have been watching Marianne Morea and I talk online about Dragon Master! They asked for a reading and let me tell you... the room was silent and gasps were heard! Readers were ASKING for this story to be ready for AAD! So yeah, we're working our tails off to make that happen!!!
That's it from me for now. See you on the next trip!!!
In a matter of weeks I'll be heading up to Atlanta as a featured author at The Novel Experience Event (TNEE). This will be my third time as a featured author and cannot WAIT to see everyone!
