  Cameron and Jai have it made. Successful careers, a sisterly bond that tops everything, and wonderful partners by their sides… or so they think. Over the course of a year, the sisters face some shattering blows. Relationships end, health declines, and addictions form as they embark on this journey, figuring out that pesky little thing called love. On Amazon: The Trouble With Love...

“You can pout all you want, Cameron, it doesn’t mean anything to me.”  Derek crossed his arms over his chest as he looked down at Cameron’s slumped form. She was supposed to be doing the new flexibility exercises he’d shown her, but she was full of excuses today. He was tired of it.  “Look, if you aren’t willing to put in the work, I can give this time to a client who is. So what do you want to do?” Oh, so now she’s pissed? He sighed about Cameron’s lack of response as he crouched down beside her. “Ms. Taylor, I-”...

Today's post full of GREAT tips if brought to you by the lovely Kristin from Musings of Me, author of One of a Kind and Better Off Friends. A commenter (Hi Tina!) asked about writing male dialogue, and it reminded me that Kris and I had JUST had a conversation about the very same thing a few days before!  She had some great advice, so I asked her to put something together to share, and she definitely delivered. Without further ado: How to be a man. . . When you’re writing So you wanna know how to tap into the mind of man when...

“Let me help you with that.” Before Jai could respond, her new neighbor Rashad was lifting a heavy box from her hands and heading into the building.  She wanted to protest, but after she’d dismissed the movers for dropping her box of shot glasses from around the world, she needed competent help.  She grabbed a smaller box from the back of the truck and followed Rashad into her first floor apartment. “Where do you want this to go?” he asked, turning to receive directions. “You can put it in the kitchen, on the counter.”  Jai was right behind him, with another box for...

Friday was interesting. I knew it wasn't going to be worth anything when it first started though.  I just woke up with a feeling of "Screw this day. Where's Saturday?" Nice little bit of foreshadowing that was. I made it through the morning mostly unscathed.  During my hour long break between classes I did some outlining for my next book, and ate pita chips. It was fine.  Time to go to class came around, and I went up the one little measly flight of stairs (in the building I was already in) to get to class. That's when everything just went to hell. I take...

“So you don’t understand the meaning of the word discreet? Your eager tail is gonna get us caught.” Cameron kept her voice low, being careful not to draw any unnecessary attention. She was glad that the gorgeous summer weather allowed them to sit outside of the restaurant as they had lunch.  It gave her a good reason to keep her oversized sunglasses plastered to her face, camouflaging her eyes as she people-watched against the backdrop of busy midday traffic. Jai rolled her eyes, but stopped craning her neck, making it obvious that they were sneaking glances at the handsome trio of...

So we got a whole inch of snow this past weekend. A WHOLE INCH. So of course the kids wanted to go out and play in it. [gallery type="rectangular" columns="4" link="file" ids="3256,3253,3254,3255,3257,3258,3259,3260"] Zoe is silly: I'm getting mostly positive reviews on my books, and that makes me SO happy!  Big thank you to all of you who share my posts, retweet my links, tell your friends about, and of course, purchase my books. I appreciate it SO much! In related news, Love and Other Things is free right now on Amazon.  It's not on purpose, and it's a whole long story that I'on even...

So, let's start with full disclosure.  I received a copy of Threads of Desire, by K.M. Jackson to read in exchange for my honest review. With that said, I honestly would have purchased it anyway, because I read Kwana's last release, Bounce (which I purchased myself) and absolutely loved it!  Kwana has a very fluid writing style, with just enough detail to keep you hooked, but not so much that it bogs you down and becomes wordy.  She's very good at creating characters that feel real and relatable, so I was excited for the opportunity to read one of her books...
