What Happened To Miss Independent?

Hi everyone! The story I've been working on is finally a finished product!

 
 
I love this cover a lot! I wavered between this and a set of diamond rings. The latter was really pretty, but it didn't really fit for the vibe I was going for, story wise. I feel like this cover really pulls the entire story together. Miss Independent is the first in a planned series and I am working on the second one as we speak (as well as my other stories, lol). The title and storyline were inspired by Kelly Clarkson's song with the same name. Originally the main character, Vanessa, was quite different. Then again, I first had the idea for the story when I was seventeen. Attempting to pen a twenty-something character at that age when I had not gone through enough experiences myself was not the easiest thing to do, so of course, a lot changed in that respect. Vanessa and company are probably my favorite of the characters I've written thus far, if only because they are similar to many people I have known in real life. I can relate to them, not just as a woman of color myself, but to their circumstances (some, not all) and I'm hoping that whoever picks up this book will be able to do the same.
 
This is probably the first time I haven't been shy or biting my nails in sharing my work, fearing it won't be liked or judged in a harsh manner. Whether you love it or loathe it, it's something that I am truly proud to share with you all either way!
 
 
Here is the trailer for the book:

As well as the blurb:
 

What happens when you learn the love of your life is marrying someone else? What happens when that someone else is your former best friend?

Twenty-three year old Vanessa Rae Brown has it all – exceptional beauty, smarts, and an envious career as the Editor-In-Chief of the popular Attitude Magazine, founded by her famous mother. The only thing she doesn’t have is what she’s always wanted, a life with the handsome Nathaniel Taylor.

Unfortunately, Nathaniel decided that a life with Vanessa’s former best friend might be better suited for him. Not because he wanted it, but because he didn’t have much of a choice when Vanessa dumped him in their senior year after she caught him having sex in the locker room showers with his now fiancée, Sheila Harris.
Five years have passed since Vanessa has laid eyes on either one of them. Now with their high school reunion just around the corner, it’ll be impossible to continue avoiding not only their impending wedding, but Vanessa’s lingering feelings for her ex., and immense hatred for her former best friend.
 
 
The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon kindle for $2.99. It will be released on January 15, 2015.
 
The physical copy will be released today on CreateSpace for $16.45 and on other channels within 3 to 5 days. I will provide links when they become available. I will also provide sample pages for the physical copy IF possible. Otherwise, waiting until it releases on Amazon Kindle this Thursday to read sample pages might be your best bet. It's not physically in bookstores (until or unless there is a future demand), so you will only be able to purchase it via online retailers. I am planning to do another Goodreads giveaway at some point as well.
 
Stay tuned and hope you enjoy reading!!

"CODE BLUE" UPDATES: PRE ORDER NEWS

For those interested, Code Blue is up for PreOrder on Amazon! CLICK HERE!

If you've yet to pick up the first book in this series of standalones about the Shadow Riders MC, Inflamed, CLICK HERE!

I apologize for such a long delay, but 2016 has been a ROUGH year and the last few months have been terribly hectic with many unexpected family things going on that I couldn't control, but I'm back now.

I haven't done a preorder for any of my books in about a year, but I've been asked so often about Code Blue since the release of Inflamed earlier this year that I thought it might be better to have a firm date set in place instead of one that I was hoping for (September). The release will be February 17, 2017. And just so you know, this book is even longer than Inflamed by a few thousand words. Blue's story and backstory really took me by surprise, as did his connection and bond with Roxy. They're two broken halves that came together and made each other whole and I re…

Are You Ready for A Brand New MC Romance?! ~ Introducing 'Reaper's Promise'
