Wow. Looks like I haven't posted anything since way back in June! Wow. I guess it's official, I am not a blogger. I'm a writer who has nothing much to talk about. Tonight however, I have a little something to share. I just completed a full length novel which I started out writing as a novelette. It sort of got out of hand and I sort of regained control by letting the muse roll free. I guess, as an independent writer that is the way to go.
This novel was supposed to be an interracial love story. The couple is interracial but I don't think it follows the normal formula for the genre. It's just a love story about a young Black woman with certain issues with food and sex, who happens to let a young Caucasian male get all under her skin and manage to open up her world to include romance and love. I think it is both sexy and sweet. Just like Dalton. Jolene had a bit of adjusting to do but she grew on me, and Dalton just had to love her as much as I did. I hope to have it polished up and ready to go before Christmas. It's a good story so if you should read it and like it (or if you don't like it) leave a review or contact me via my Contact Page and let me know what you think. You won't hurt my feelings if you are honest and respectful.
Yesterday, I worked on the e book cover,wanting to do something a little bit different. Somehow I just wasn't satisfied with anything much with the fonts and texts, so I got on Facebook and had my friends comment on what they liked or didn't like about the different mocks I put together. Bless my Facebook friends, they always come through for me. I'm no graphic designer but I do enjoy making my own book covers and book trailers. I'm not feeling doing a trailer for Just Like My Coffee at this time. Don't know why not, maybe later.
Anyway, I'm all excited. After it is released, I hope you check it out.
