Christmas in July

For those of you who aren’t newsletter subscribers, this will come as news to you. I am in a Christmas collaboration with twenty plus amazing authors. Our books center curvy women and Christmas. What’s not to love, right?

Well to celebrate, we’ll be doing a takeover on July 25, 2022 in Geeky Girl’s Whole Latte Books. The fun starts at 9:00 AM EST and goes until 9:00 PM EST. I’ll be popping in at 1:30 PM, but there will be a lot of new-to-you authors ready to entertain with games and giveaways. You’ll also get the cover reveal of my Christmas book.

Hope to see you.

A busy release and more

With my third book, I have come to the conclusion that I will never not be a nervous wreck during release week. My mind is a non-stop scroll of to-dos, signing up for ways to get the word out, hoping that the risks I’ve taken as a newbie will pay off, and the list goes on.

Thankfully tomorrow is the 4th and a day to take a breath and reflect. There are many concerning issues impacting women of color like me, and it is all too easy to spiral into negative thoughts, but tomorrow I am determined to put all that aside.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I am able to wake up every day and write, challenge myself and in doing so, deliver great stories to readers who love romance.

If you’re a newsletter subscriber, you know I am currently working on a short novella to be part of Hope Ford’s Heart of a Wounded Hero Series. I finished writing my first draft and it’s out for my critique partners to tear apart. I love the critical feedback I get because it makes my stories stronger. I’m hoping to release in September 🤞🏾 but will update soon. If you want to be one of the first to know what’s going on such as cover reveals, pre-orders, and new releases, subscribe to my newsletter.

In the meantime, my July is getting packed. First up is my takeover in Chelsea’s Angels Facebook group from 3:00 PM EST (9:00 AM HST) to 3:30 PM EST (9:30 AM HST). Hope to see you there.

Last of the Oliveris

I’m sorry for neglecting you. It’s been a challenge for me to juggle—aka learn to navigate and post— on social media. I don’t think I’ve gotten the hang of it yet, but I make progress every day. Between that and writing, I haven’t given you as much attention as you deserve. I intend to post more regularly though. I’ve been writing like a fiend so there will be more to come.

First, the finale to the Oliver mafia series. The final book features Lorenzo and Onika and I must say I really loved this couple. They are fire together. If you haven’t done so yet, check them out.

As my release is so close to another author friend of mine, Aurora Paige, I will be joining her takeover of the group 1-Click Addict Support Group to help her celebrate her release. Join me and twenty other authors on July 1, 2022. The takeover is from 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM EST. My half hour begins at 8:30 PM.
