I hope to get the book trailer up soon, and also post a favorite scene from the novel here. Again, many thanks to all those who read the excerpt and decided to purchase the ebook. This story made the Quarterfinals of Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Awards in 2011
A favorite scene that takes place in the prison. Josh is visiting Nevaeh:
HEAVEN will be up this week, although I may have to change the date again, this time to the
I got a creative burst just before publishing it, so I decided to pull the ebook and include the new info. My marketing/promo for the full novel will be an eleven chapter, two day free download.
Free Eleven chapter download starts tomorrow on Amazon!
And yes, I changed the first name of my Afro-Cuban character in honor of Trayvon Martin.
This book was supposed to be out last year, but there was a secondary romance in the book that needed a bit more work. So I held off until just the right scenes came to mind, and putting the couple together didn’t seem so improbable.
Just for fun, I thought I’d cast the movie of this book:
For Josh Duval, the wounded Marine, I’d cast Hayden Christensen:
For the part of Marko, I’d like to see Mike Epps in the role:
I’d cast an unknown actress in the part of Nevaeh. An excerpt of the novel can be found here

What a pleasant surprise! HEAVEN was first submitted to Amazon’s Break Through Novel Award Contest back in 2011. It made the quarterfinals but didn’t go any further. Though the ABNA Publisher’s Weekly reviewer liked the characters, the storyline didn’t grab them. Fair enough. It was shelved, but a decision was made to see just what the public might think, especially since the Vine reviewers on Amazon were very gracious and complimentary on the excerpt and blurb. Following up on a hunch (tastes are subjective after all) we decided to bring it back after a few tweaks in the story. However the excerpt under Free Chapter Views on this site and simultaneously on Scribd.com have generated the most reads out of all the other excerpts wikkidsexycool.com lists as a free read. It was supposed to be out in July, but didn’t quite make it.
September is more realistic. Looks like the editing won’t be finished until late October.
