I made my novella, “Undeniably Yours,” available on Amazon for free this week only. I wrote it a while back. It’s only if you have Kindle Unlimited. I read so much, and I just adore Kindle Unlimited because I get to read whatever for only ten bucks a month. For readers it’s like a dream LOL. It’s also why I made mine available for it, because if I saw it was featured on KU I’d be thrilled.
Side note: KU said that I read a total of forty books in 2022. YAY! I’m going to shoot for one-hundred books read in 2023. What are your goals? Other than dropping like fifty pounds, reading, and traveling, I don’t have anything extravagant. (Or do I?)
That just took a turn.
Anyway, if you want to read it, please click here.
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!
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. 😏

I published my fifth romance book this week. Just in time for the holidays. I don’t get a lot of reviews, and I don’t think I ever will, but the feeling of accomplishment I get whenever I finish telling a story, a romantic one at that, gives me such pleasure. I live so much in my head I fear that it’s where I prefer to be most of the time. Anyway, I wanted to let anyone know who is still following this poetry blog that it’s available on Amazon. And that my author website is finished as well. I will leave the information below.
I’m sorry that I’ve been M.I.A. My grad work has picked up, and I’ve also been writing the sequel to my romance book. But, I have some good news. I have released a new book! Today! This one is just a small book of poems, and I’m more nervous about this one than any other work. Maybe because it’s not fiction. I mean, it’s thoughts, and feelings, and it’s more of who I am than a romance novel. I’m wondering if any of you feel this way? That you can write anything, except when it’s about you?
No? Just me?
Anyway, if you want to read something interesting, (LOL) and support an indie author, then click the link below. If you find yourself overwhelmed with the poems, then be kind and leave a review. I love you all, and I hope to be back up here tonight with some more stuff.
For the past couple of weeks, I have been stressing about my book. Whether or not people will love it if it will sell successfully. I expected average reviews. 3-4 stars rating. But to get five? That is absolutely amazing! It’s been an adventure. And now that I’ve gotten my feet wet, I am writing furiously for my second novel. I think all the jitters and kinks have been worked out.
