Benediction for a Mended Heart

I’ve had some ups and downs,

and I was afraid to fall.

But you answered the call.

So consumed with my innermost thoughts,

Struggling to connect the dots…

But thank you.

Because there’s a lot I’d be facing if you didn’t come through.

Two Books in One Month!

Hello everyone!

I’ve been so busy! But never fear I am still here. I pleased to announce that I will be putting out two books in the month of January. (God willing) If it has to go to February I’ll be okay with it, but for now I’m trying to be positive about everything. LOL. This will make seven books total. In three years I would have published three poetry books and four fiction books! I never thought I would be able to put out my own stuff but I’m so grateful that I can, and be self-published too through Amazon! I hope that I can entice you all to read my fiction book.

*I’ll post it here when it’s released.

My goal for 2023 is to continue writing. To continue expressing myself in the wonderful way of prose. My goal is to lose a little more weight, but not stress about it. My goal is to finally allow myself the chance to open up when it comes to love. I can admit that I’ve been a bit standoffish when even the idea is mentioned in my presence, but since I’m being honest I thought it best to start here. I love you all, and if I don’t post anymore this weekend, then I want to say Happy New Year!

Stay safe, and I love you all.

After Sunset

In June of 2020 I took the plunge and published my first African-American paranormal romance. I loved every moment of it. This book was something I’d been working on for a long while, and I finally had the guts to publish it. I got reviews, (not many as this was released on Amazon and I self-published) and I was pleased with the results. Now I am working on the sequel.

It’s taken me almost three years but I am pleased to say that I am almost finished with the next book in the series, Before Midnight. I lost inspiration, then gained it back. I had writers block. Tonight, as I’m working on the next book I am marveling at how far I’ve come. I used to be so afraid to publish my own work. Always fearing that it would never be good enough.

But publishing my poetry on this website, and seeing notifications of other writers reading my work truly warms my heart. You all gave me hope that maybe my writing isn’t as meaningless as I once thought it would be. It’s what gave me the strength to try. If I had to give advice to any person struggling with the decision on whether or not to post their work, I would tell them to do it. To try. Because you’ll always wonder.

And you are better than that.

By the way, if you’re interested in reading the first book, see below the hot book cover for link. 😏
