A Year Later

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine Day.

While we celebrated Valentine Day in our special way with loved ones, family or friends, the teenagers of Parkland held a day of remembrance to pray for their lost friends and promise they will never forget them. My grandchildren live in Parkland and were a mile away in their own school when the shooting took place.

One of the survivors, a lovely young woman only 17 last year, was interviewed in the Parkland Lifestyle magazine and explained how she overcame the trauma and her fears. She needed to show the world that this drama could not be repeated again. I was so impressed by the article I’d like to share some of its thoughts with you.

The day after, this MSD senior talked to her congresswoman and organized a march. “This happened at my high school. I had to do something. I’d wake up at 6 a.m. and slept at 2 a.m. I made so many phone calls. I contacted the bus companies, the parents, chaperones, reached out to the Civic Center in Tallahassee, organized cots from the Red Cross… “

Many more marches followed in the “Road to Change”. Those young people, not even 18 yet, explained they didn’t want to take guns away. They had conversations about extreme risk protection orders or universal background check or disarming domestic abusers. People would say, “Oh I can get behind that.”

People were receptive and the students felt America was behind them to protect the children in school. It’s amazing how fear can create courage.

This is not a political post, but a salute to my grandchildren, their classmates, friends and team members from various sports and activities.

You are still very young but you can make our world a better place.

A Recipe For Love @Natalieann121 #mgtab

Take an ex-Navy SEAL security expert that has demons he’s trying to outrun. Guilt piled on his shoulders higher than Mount Olympus and mistakes he’ll never forgive himself for.

Then add in the lone girl of the Fierce Five. The one that is always calm, cool, collected, and in control. Who puts her family business and obligations before any personal life. Why? Because it seems no one wants her for her, but rather her name.

Mix them together and you get Fierce-Ella. Two strong-willed individuals both looking for love—secretly from each other for years.

When I started the Fierce Five Series over two years ago I made sure to build each of the siblings characters exponentially in the next book. I’ve always had a deeper connection to my heroes than my heroines. But by time I got to Ella’s story, I realized she was by far my favorite all along. Watching her journey through each book while her brothers fell in love and she supported them was nothing short of…loving from a woman that most called cold.

Fierce-Ella will be released on Feb 19th and though I originally thought that would be the end of the series, I just couldn’t bring myself to do that. Not when I’ve become so close to this family. (Yes, authors get attached to their characters as if they are living in those worlds with them). So in the summer of 2019, I will be releasing Fierce-Sam, the first of the Fierce Family. The Fierce Five have 7 cousins that were introduced in Cade’s book. Of course they need their own stories!

Until then, enjoy Fierce-Ella. Or Brody, Aiden, Mason, and Cade. Each book can be read as a stand-alone or in any order. And if you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, then you can read them FREE! Or for 99 cents you can check out their parents story in How Gavin Stole Christmas!

 

A Celebration!

On January 16th, I marked a milestone with my 40th book was published! It’s hard to believe that I have now officially published FORTY books!! Rescued, Heal Me Series, Book 4 was released that day and it marks the big occasion!!! I must admit that I have even surprised myself with this!

It’s exciting to think of all the stories that I have released and how many more I still have to write! Who would have thought that back in October 2010 when I came up with my first plot, that I would ever continue writing, much less write over 40!!!

The first year I published (2011), I released two (My Blood Runs Blue & Blue Blood for Life). In 2017, I published 18 with the help of my thirteen book Celebration Series. Right there is half of my published books in two of those years.

With each release, I find myself more humbled by the number of people who download a copy and reach out to tell me how much they enjoyed the story. I am truly humled and so happy that I can touch so many people with my writing and look forward to the future!

Now, how long do you think it will take me to hit 50 books published?

Romance and Resolution by @AliciaStreet1 #mgtab

Okay, so we’re far enough into 2019 to have broken most of our New Year’s resolutions—or to know which one actually means enough that we will find a way to do it.

Knowing it’s time for a change and being determined to make it happen  is the basis for the Resolution Series collection of steamy romance by eight best-selling and award-winning authors. 

Eight Strangers. Eight Unique Stories. All Stand-alone Novels.

Mine is the latest release: After Hurricane Nina, Kip’s Resolution

Hollywood stunt man Kip Rocklyn loves taking risks, using his skills to cheat death. After nature gives him a tragic dose of reality testing, he wonders if he’s just a kid refusing to grow up. But can he fit in a world where he doesn’t hurl his body through space or race a motorcycle at breakneck speeds? Would a woman’s love make it possible?

Mina Winthrop has always been a straight arrow, with strict parents she had never even considered disobeying. And she dates men who never veer off the narrow path. Trouble is none of them turn her on. Which is why she’s got a secret problem—she is still a virgin at twenty-seven. And she’s decided Kip Rocklyn is the perfect man to rid her of that.

 

Kip’s Resolution is on sale for 99¢ during its launch~or free with Kindle Unlimited.

This is the fourth release in the collection and all the coming books are available for pre-order at a discounted price. You can check out the whole series HERE.
