#WriterWednesday - Inflamed 'Fun Fact!'

Did you know...?

The scene in which Mia & River finally talk about their feelings for each other and hook up was written about a month before nearly everything else that happened prior to it.

Right after I wrote the prologue and first three chapters, there was a giant gap of 'stuff' that was supposed to happen, but I wasn't sure how to fill it because I didn't know what any of that 'stuff' would be. So I decided to move forward with other parts of the story until it finally hit me.

That exact moment of their hook up came to me as I was writing another scene, and I just went with it, all while having zero clue as to how the hell they got to that point (given where they started)! It was only when I finished those scenes that I knew what I was building up to and how the story itself would come to an end. It amplified and intensified every conversation and encounter between them, hence the name of the book.

I changed the cover three times in the hope of reflecting not only the story but the way Mia and River came together, until I found one that I felt represented each aspect that I had attempted to convey with words:

The crown represents River. If you've read the book, then the reason why should come easily.

The wings represent River as well. Not only for the Hawk tattoo on his back, but it represents his one time desire to actually break free of the club and what it had eventually become under Wolf's handling.

The 'inflamed' heart represents both Mia and River, and how they felt about each other throughout the story, even through River's denials.


I hope you felt that intensity while reading, because I felt it as I was writing.

  1. This book is still with me almost a month later. Clearly the wildest and if not the most authentic MC romance I've ever read. I'll be spotlighting soon...

"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'

The original title was "Chained to the Bad Boy Biker" but as the plot grew to be more complicated and the characters developed, I decided to change the theme and title to 'REAPER'S PROMISE'.
