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!!

It is a spur of the moment story, which usually happens right after I've finished something else in a series and need to keep my mind active but not pressured. It's another MC with minimal connections to other books. The Reapers and Shadow Riders are mentioned in passing, but there's no appearances being made by anyone. This is a full standalone. 
During Pre-Order/Release Day, the book will be 99cents.After release day, it will change to $5.99 but will remain in Kindle Unlimited.
The Pre-Order never panned out, therefore the book will just be on SALE for $3.99 on release day (June 30th) and the day following. Full price will be $5.99 next week and will be in Kindle Unlimited during the entire period.Styx's story for the Shadow Riders should come out later this year as I've said, but I've realized over the last year that I can't force myself to finish a story that just isn't coming in the time that I'd like or need …

HELLO. HI.

SO...

So yeah... I'm late. 

VERY LATE.

If you know me by now, you had to know this was coming.

If you're just learning about me, WELCOME! 

I'm never on time with anything. I try and try and try and I always fail.

But.

You need to know that this book nearly killed me. I mean that, it nearly took me off this earth because I wasn't sure if I could actually pull off what I wrote. But I did, somehow. At least, I think and hope I did. It came full circle from beginning to end and took me completely by surprise with the outcome. I honestly didn't know if Axel and Tatiana would get a real happy ending. I honestly thought the epilogue would turn into a funeral, and it almost did. ALMOST. THAT is how much this book almost took me out. The HEA I initially promised and thought would come with the territory of the story just almost didn't happen at all. I was certain by the second to last chapter that she would walk away from him out of f…

SEXY BIKER ROMANCE: A Wild Reapers MC: Reaper's Fight ~ New Cover, Arc Copies, Belated New Year and March Release

First thing's first:

Hope you all haven't forgotten about me!


Second:

Happy New Year! I'm a month late and ten dollars short given that it's now February, but I wanted to get that out there before going on. I hope your year is going well so far and if not, I hope that it improves GREATLY, as I'm hoping mine will soon enough.


Third:

"Why the hell are you sitting over there acting as if he's not talking about helping to save a kid from a piss poor motorcycle club that operates inside the basement of a run down liquor store formerly owned by Nazi's, motherfucker?"

Easily one of my favorite lines from the book.



Fourth:

REAPER'S FIGHT ~ A WILD REAPERS MC WILL BE RELEASED TO YOU in MARCH of this year for $4.99

The date will come later this month.

It will also be in Kindle Unlimited.
