To start out this post on a bit of humor, this is me when I write...sometimes.
This blog post went up a few months ago and I think it's time to retell some of what was told then.
In the last few months, I've been to a few different events, with more setup for 2016. I'm going to post my own, honest opinion on things.
Not everyone may be in agreement with my post, and that's okay. Please do not go out of your way to "ruin" another author or coordinator. Why would you want to do this? What is your goal in doing so?
Did the author write a story you don't agree with? Do not read it.
Did the author steal your story line? File a complaint with the library of congress. Get an entertainment attorney on speed dial.
Has a coordinator become a threat to the industry professionals? I highly doubt it. Even if so, be a professional and take it up with them. Work together.
Has a model, reader, blogger or author crossed the line in some fashion? Take it up with them rather than blasting them on social media.
This is not intended to blast anyone or anything, nor is there any name calling. If offense is taken (which is not my intent), then reach out to me. I am one of the kindest persons you'll EVER meet, but never, ever, mistake my kindness for weakness.
It takes years to build up trust in someone but it can take only a second to destroy it. The mouth is a powerful weapon, use it wisely. Use it in a book as a man who is seducing a woman. Use drama in your story to build your plot, not drive away authors and potential readers.
Reminder that Southern Roots is still 99 cents! If you've not ventured into the world of Bobby Ray and Lexi, now is your chance to while it's on sale! When Paramour publishes, you can download ALL five books at once! None of them end on a cliff hanger and can be read out of order, although I recommend in order for character development.
While we're talking Southern Roots, I have toyed with the idea of extending the series. Where I've mentioned Paramour being the last book; this is most likely the truth. However, I do believe a collection of short stories will be coming soon. Clive is not done (he's a talker!) and I believe we'll be meeting his family (aka: brothers) very soon! I think Scarlet may also be back in the picture (you met her in Fueled Desire).
Writing, writing and MORE writing...
I've mentioned Marianne Morea and I have ventured into co-writing a story together. We are both pretty darn excited for this! Think... Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter in King Arthur's court. Yeah... it's like that. Again, EXCITED!!!! We've named the beauty "Dragon Master". Let your imagination run from there...
Almost a year ago I began writing a new series about military special ops. Book one titled: Delta Force. That is still happening! I've secured what will be the cover image and once I get to a point I can focus on that story, edits will take place. Depending on writing time, you may see it come early summer time. That is, of course, unless I have the third book in the Deadly Alchemy series completed... it is outlined so it will happen!
That is all for now. Stay tuned and keep in touch! Paramour will be here before you know it!
Oh, and the release date is October 22nd... MY BIRTHDAY!!!
