Miss Independent: A Naughty vs. Nice Novella ~ NEW YEARS DAY SPECIAL RELEASE

Miss Independent: A Naughty vs. Nice Novella has been uploaded to Amazon and will release in just a few hours!!!!!!!!!! So now, it’s just a waiting game!

This was a quick and fun book to write even between all the stress of the holidays. Some questions from Truth & Consequences answered and some don’t. The rest will be answered in The Wedding, which will be the FINAL BOOK featuring all five main characters. Book 6 will only feature two of them and that book will release in the fall of 2016!

Naughty vs. Nice is *almost* 30K words, just being a few hundred shy of it. I was shooting for less, but every time I do when it comes to these characters, they always have more to say than I originally intend. It will be 99cents before going up to $2.99 after January 4th, so get it THE SECOND I tell you that it drops and tell your friends and fellow readers by liking and sharing this post!
Thanks so much and when the book becomes LIVE, I will forward the links! In the meantime, I know in some pla…

Miss Independent: A Naughty vs. Nice TEASER ~ NOW LIVE ON AMAZON

Vanessa spun around to Maurice, who after removing his gloves, wrapped his hands around her face and pulled her close to his mouth. She jumped back. "Your hands are ice cold, Mo!" she squealed. He dropped his hands down to her waist and jerked her to him. "I know," he told her, his voice low, seductive. She melted into him like a piece of chocolate beneath the heat of the sun and slinked her arms around his neck. "I was looking for you to warm me up." She laughed and dipped her head back, but Maurice wrapped two ice cold fingers around her jaw to pull her forward. He slipped his tongue between her lips, licking from side to side and swirling it around inside her mouth until it met hers, and kissed her deeply. She moaned so loudly that the noise could be heard throughout the entire house. He attempted to muffle it with an even deeper kiss and as her entire body collapsed against his in what felt like a faint, thus feeding into his ever growing erection, his…

Miss Independent: A Naughty vs. Nice Novella ~ BLURB!

As I mentioned in a previous post, you will need to read books 1 - 4 in the Miss Independent series in order to know what's going on with the characters in this book. I'll also advise to PLEASE read this book before reading The Wedding! This is book 4.5, meaning you may read parts in Book 5 that leave you lost and/or confused if you don't read this book first.

Now, check out the cover again as well as the official blurb!



It's Christmastime in New York City! A very special time of year to spend with family and friends! And this year marks the first year for Vanessa and Maurice as an official couple. To christen this very special occasion, they've decided to have their first Christmas dinner in their home, inviting everyone they know who means the most (and even the least) to them to make the very special announcement of their engagement. But as always with this group, things never go as officially planned. Someone ends up in the hospital. Someone ends up with a few …

Hmm....A Miss Independent Christmas?

I love the holidays! Christmas is my favorite time of year. 2015 has been trying me left and right but I'm determined to celebrate the rest of the year in style. I told myself and mentioned in an earlier post that I wouldn't pen another novel this year (mostly due to the stress of having written so many already back to back), but I missed Vanessa and the crew and wanted to know what they would be up to over the holiday's. I've also always wanted to write a Christmas book, so I did!



Miss Independent: A Naughty vs. Nice Novella This book takes place after Truth & Consequences and BEFORE The Wedding. There will be spoilers in this book, so if you haven't read Miss Independent, Decision Makers, Live & Learn or Truth & Consequences DON'T read this book!

And since this is a novella, taking place over Christmas and into the New Year, it will not be as long as the other books in the series. Some twists, turns and surprises will take place and some minor deta…

**NOW LIVE & ON SALE** Last New Book for 2015 ~ Not "Miss Independent" Related

*Takes a deep breath*


I've written a new book. An unconventional romance that is completely unlike anything I've ever written before. This story took me on a journey of discovery and I learned about myself, about intolerance and about people. I stepped completely outside of the box to write this story and after a lot of soul searching, I'm glad that I finally did and am putting it out there. It won't be everyone's cup of tea and I understand that, which is why I've written it under a pen name. I need to be able to spread my wings as a writer and create stories outside of my comfort zone and more importantly, stories outside of the norm. I need to be able to sink into myself and really think about who I am and what I want and who I want to be. I'll be 30 years old in two weeks and I'm realizing that time is tick, tick, ticking away and I can't waste anymore of it by NOT doing the things I want to do or writing the books I want to write out of fear. S…

Miss Independent Book 5: Blurb Reveal!!!

In The Wedding, the fifth book in the Miss Independent series, Vanessa and Maurice plan for one of the most important days of their lives as Sheila and Adrian question the current state of their relationship following a huge revelation. Meanwhile, Oscar and Nikki come to terms with mistakes made in the past just as Nathan and Melanie come together and announce their own plans for the future.


Two people get married. Two people announce their pregnancies. And someone (may) die(s).

This will be the last one featuring all five main characters. Book 6 will only focus on TWO of them, and that will in fact be the final book in this series.

I hope you enjoyed/are enjoying Truth & Consequences. A lot of things from books 1 - 3 were finally revealed in that book. What wasn't revealed then will be revealed in The Wedding. You can expect more drama along the way, especially as more secrets from the past come to light during a pre-wedding getaway!

Look for The Wedding in early 2016! Deta…

Book 5 in the Miss Independent series ~ Cover and Title

If you've read all the way through Truth & Consequences, then you know that book 5 will be titled "The Wedding". This will be the LAST BOOK to cover ALL five characters. The book following will only cover TWO characters and will be the absolute final book in the series.

As much fun as these stories have been to write, these characters take ALOT out of me. I hope they're just as fun to read, but not nearly as draining.

And while we're on the subject of draining, I just want to make a quick note:

I've had a few emails sent by some who've recently read Miss Independent and told me that that they feel like Vanessa does nothing but whine in that particular book and that it would be better for them if she did less. And I get that. I do. The thing is, and I honestly don't know another way to say it, but she's *meant* to. I didn't go in trying to write her as a woman having it all together, because the facts are that she didn't and never has.…

Miss Independent gets a face lift!

I've recently updated the cover of Miss Independent!

I liked the last cover okay, but since I used real people for the covers of books 2 - 4, only "cartoonized", I wanted to have that same look for book 1 as well to give the series a more cohesive look.



The paperback version will be updated shortly!

I like this version a lot better because it reflects more of Vanessa's tone in this book. A little somber, a little bitter, a little angry. That's this book in a nutshell when it comes to her character. She's got a lot of, excuse my language, shit to work through in this book as well as the others, but this one shows the beginning of her journey. I can't wait to post the cover of book 5 to show just how far she's come since that very first page!

I hope you all are enjoying Truth & Consequences! That book took *a lot* out of me while writing it, despite it being a lot of fun to finish. If you liked what you read, reviews are always welcome! I love encou…

Truth & Consequences: Sent To You!

Received word from Amazon earlier this afternoon that those who initially received a DRAFT of Truth & Consequences have been emailed information regarding the correct version and how to download it straight to their kindle. Thank you to everyone who kept the "screwy" version and waited patiently for the UPDATES! It tells me that you are truly invested in these characters and I want to thank you for writing this series for me worth it! I hope you enjoy reading about these crazy characters and their adventures and the crazy journeys they all take in this book. Some things may piss you off, but I hope in the end you're happy with the results. If you enjoy what's written, please don't hesitate to let me know what you liked. And pass the word along to those you think may be interested in this series as well! Book 5 is coming in early 2016 (you'll see the title revealed at the end of TRUTH). Book 6 will come not long after that, and will be the FINAL book in t…

Truth & Consequences: CORRECTED VERSION ~ UPDATE

I received an email earlier today from Kindle Publishers informing me that the correct version of T&C has finally been published and is available for sale.

For those of you that have purchased DRAFT versions, you should be receiving an email from Amazon by October 15th (this Thursday) with regard to downloading the correct file! 

They will need to review the changes to make sure they are suitable enough, which they will be since what was originally uploaded was not the correct version.

This book was around 125K words total.

It's upload to the kindle reads at 428 pages.

And that's with me having cut a few chapters here and there. One including Mo and Vanessa that I may post at a later date. I really liked that scene but couldn't find a proper place to fit it within the story.

Thank you again, sincerely, to those who are waiting so patiently for the updates to hit your notebook. Y'all are really the reason I continue on with this series. As much as I love it, Truth

Truth & Consequences: OFFICIAL PART ONE

Thank you to EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has continued to order and hold onto the book in draft form while waiting SO PATIENTLY for the final copy to arrive to your kindle!
I just want to make sure that you know that once you've received the legitimate FINAL COPY, it will state so at the top of the page.
T&C is still "In Review" status in my account but hopefully it will finally be published today. I know that some of you have been waiting since *July* for this release and I hope to **** it is worth your while once you finally get through the pages.
I can't stress my apology enough.
In the meantime, here is the official Part One of Book 4 in the Miss Independent series, Truth & Consequences.





Part One
It was a mess to be had by everyone involved. Barely a few hours had passed since the Hampton’s fiasco, which meant that no one had any real time to fully recover from what had taken place at Nathan’s ‘Dinner from Hell’ the night before. It also meant that Vanessa and …
