Editing Process Has Me "INFLAMED"

So I've been MIA for a month.

I think this is actually the longest I've ever gone in not writing a blog because I often put one out every week. But I have been fully committed to finishing this book, making it the absolute best it can be and getting it out in a timely manner, both for myself and for readers. Writing a "standalone" is so much more different than a series because you have to make sure all your ducks are in a row in ONE book. Even if you add others on, they're still separate stories, so you all but have to make ONE book complete, no cliffhangers, no unanswered questions. It sounds easy to stick it all in a single book instead of stretching it over the course of many, but for me, it's not. I'm so used to having things to go back to or to help move me along that I'm having to make sure that everything from page 1 until the very last adds up and makes sense.

But it's been worth it.
 
In the meantime, I've been editing like crazy, drinking Starbucks espresso shots to keep myself awake and alert and it's been working for the most part. This book is longggggggggggggg. Really longggggggggggg, but I think it will be worth your time reading in the long run. Especially when you get to the point of the story where Mia and River finally "commit" to one another and become intimate. I'm editing those scenes right now and they are making me blush like crazy. I love Maurice and Vanessa with all my heart and soul and I love writing all of their intimate scenes. But when it comes time for "The Wedding", those two might have to STEP IT UP.
 
The scenes between Mia and River are so very steamy (to me), so very sexy (to me), so very ADULT to the point that I feel like I wrote.... some of my favorite.... love scenes..... ever.... in this book. They're just very romantic in a sense; there's just a lot of love shown between them during these scenes.
 
I actually couldn't stop writing some of them and then I went back and wanted to add more (today). I could've gone on for pages and pages and pages with some of these scenes because they were just so intimate and beautiful and just felt extremely real to me, but I had to stretch them out over the course of the book.
 
But the first time these two people make love, it is really something magical. I felt like a voyer as I was writing it because they played out in my head so clearly. Also, mood music. Mood music helps a lot when writing intimate scenes.
 
Anyway, the book will be out next week. LOL. I'm shooting for this weekend, but I'm making no promises on that due to Amazon's technical issues as of late that I've seen happening with other authors. That's why I didn't want to put an exact *date* for the book because there is always *something*. So when it finally drops, it'll be more like a SURPRISE, IT'S HERE.
 
That'll be the next post.
 
Just rest assured, it's coming. So hang tight and keep 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…

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.
