    Yasssss . . . March Madness

    March Madness is back! I’ll have reduced priced ebooks and sneak peeks at the new ones that will be released. I write because I love crafting stories. What I’m terrible at is sticking to a release date, because all of a sudden a new scene will pop into my head, or I’ll need to do another edit. So please believe me when I say, thanks to all you readers who’ve been patient. The Queen of Comedy and other longer works are a priority, and I’m diligently working on making them the best tales that I can.


    Yassss . . . Lovers Lisa and Seth, from Reinventing Lisa



    Reinventing Lisa promo with three scenes



    Silence greeted Seth’s ears as fear flooded his body. Moonlight made it easier to realize Lisa wasn’t taking in a midnight snack. The kitchen was just as spotless as they’d left it. In the stillness he grew aware of steady breathing, and the sense that he was being watched. Seth rotated in the direction of the hallway that connected several first floor rooms, stopping to squint his eyes and focus on the living room.

    She was sitting in the rocking chair with a duvet covering her.


    Instead of a response, Lisa drew her knees up to her chin. Seth called out to her again. “Lisa? What’s wrong?”

    “I-I saw you just like that, the first day I was here.”

    “Like what?” Each footstep brought him closer to her.


    Seth dropped his head. Placing one bare foot behind the other, he reversed course. “And it didn’t scare you off?”

    “No.” Her next words were muffled by the duvet. “I couldn’t take my eyes off you.”

    Ozzy on his own copy
    Ozzy is the ex-factor, from the ebook The Player


    Excerpt from The Player:

    “I wish I could’ve seen you dance live back then.” He was sprawled on her bed with one of his long legs cocked up while the other was diagonal, his heel along the mattress edge. The way his legs were divided gave her a clear view of what lay heavy and thick between his legs.

    The way his eyes got that dreamy look in them, like he was imagining a number of things with her in that outfit gave Harlow an idea. “Close your eyes. Don’t open them until I tell you,” she ordered. “You’ve been a very good boy so I think you deserve a reward.”

    “I hope it’s what I think it is. But I may be wrong. Are you gonna do it? Are you gonna-”

    An AA heroine with vitiligo

    In keeping with my theme of diversity (with a focus on underrepresented women of color in publishing), I’ve got a New Adult romance featuring a young woman who discovers just how strong she really is:


    Young lovers Bree and Stone, from the ebook The Gorgeous Nothings



    Pictured: Bree Silvestre, lead character in my New Adult romance about a sexual assault on a college campus.



    If a six foot-something man could shrink to two feet, that’s what Tyshawn did. My words seemed to make him fold into himself. His shoulders slump, and his face is crestfallen. “Bree, please . . . I just need to explain.”

    “No, you-you get back. Get back or I’ll scream. You were there, and you didn’t do a damn thing except laugh. You saw me on the ground, but you didn’t do anything to help me-”

    “I didn’t know you needed help! Jamie said you had too much to drink, and he was gonna help you get home.”

    “And you believed him.”

    As I mentioned in a previous post, I need to get back to a few of my older novels in order to take them forward with their sequels. JUKEBOX II is also on that list:
