Indie-Author Chick

That’s me.  THAT’S ME.  How weird is that? Just four months ago, I never would have thought that I would be a published author.  Not only that, people actually like the book.  Surreal, is what it is. I am working, impatiently, through my second novel, Strictly Professional.  Only 7 chapters in, but already at 104…

About that album

So, unless you’ve been under a rock, I’m sure you know Beyonce released a new album on Friday the 13th. I was up, writing a paper when I found out, and that homework assignment was quickly forgotten as I, after about 30 minutes of debating spending $16 on it, purchased the second album I’ve ever…

Waited too Late

Every year, I convince myself that THIS is the year we’re going to do our Christmas shopping early. Get it over with in September, or something like that. Guess how much Christmas shopping I’ve done? That’s right. NONE. I even waited too late to properly shop for Izzy’s birthday, since it seems like every reputable…

State of the Black Romance Novel

I recently ran across a forum thread on Goodreads that left me feeling rather disappointed. The gist of it was there was no interest in the black romance novel. That people would much rather read interracial, or even white romance. They seemed to be of the opinion that all black romance does is perpetuate negative…

Looking Forward

November was quite a busy month! Now that December has arrived, I am greatly looking forward to the things this month will bring. •The end of this semester. I’ve said it before, but I’m kinda over school. Just for right now though, lol. I’m anticipating all A’s, or at least mostly A’s, so it has…

Feels like – Randoms

It’s 23 degrees here right now. But according to my app, it “feels like” 16…..O_o I understand heat index and all of that, but dagnabbit, if it “feels like” 16 freaking degrees, that’s what it is! I woke up to 19 sales of my novel, Love and Other Things. This makes me feel all tingly!…

Love & Other Things

Yep, that’s the name of my novel.  Yep. MY NOVEL. Look at the cover! Designed by yours truly. And the title, Love & Other Things, is the work of my wonderful friend Krissy, because I was completely lost! Looooook!!!! Here is the description from the Kindle page: Third Time’s a Charm-  Tara is a 30-something…

Writing Myself Into a Corner

It’s 1am. Instead of doing something useful, (like getting some sleep, since I’m fighting an ear infection, and I have class in the morning) I’m sitting here in my bed, thinking about my book. I’ve put a lot of time, and a lot of energy, and lately, a lot of tears into this book. You…

Weekend Randomness

We’ve been biking. (We’ve been since this date, lol) That was a short one, cause we usually do seven or eight. It’s a pretty enjoyable way to blast through some calories, but the PAIN in my thighs. Sheesh. So, I ran across this tumblr: http://beautifulfitblackwomen.tumblr.com/ and y’all? My life is just… changed. I would see…

Baby #3?!

     Announcing a pregnancy with a one year old and a four year old is something I never thought I’d have to do.      And it’s so awesome that I don’t have to.      Thanks, God, for keeping my uterus empty. I appreciate that so much.      While we are open to the idea of…
