It’s New Years Eve and my short story Wreckless is available on Amazon, Nook, Kobo, and Smashwords. Grab your ebook device and get your copy! Writing a short story was no easy task for me. Let’s face it, the challenge is to compile a 60,000 word novel in a 10.000 word story. That’s HUGE! It must come with everything and I’m proud to say this story definitely does. After going through a series of editing and test reading this story has been shaped into the baby I wanted it to be. Yes, it was just as hectic at times to get it right but it was well worth the fight!

Wreckless dives into the life of a love sick fanatic, Jasmine Johnson. She is completely mesmerized by a college cutie Maurice Desmon Jones. He on the other hand has no clue. Jasmine never actually approaches Maurice but when she sees the opportunity someone steps on her toes and gets to him before she can. Oh that is more than Jasmine can handle. She goes into a jealous rage and acts on her emotions. That puts her in a deep situation that will have major consequences. Jasmine tries to fix her problems but she only ends up causing more. This story has everything, drama, revenge, murder, suspense, thrills, pain, misery and inspiration.

New Years Resolutions – Keep it simple

It’s that time of year again, out with the old in with the new! So do we dare get into the New Years resolutions? It depends, do we actually stand by them throughout the year, or does it become a distance memory as the year passes. I’m thinking a little bit of both. I can’t remember keeping one single resolution. However, I know there are some people out there that manage to make it through. These are the top New Years resolutions I’ve found people make the most.

Even though we may mean to do the things that we say, it doesn’t always happen that way. The best way to hold on to your new years resolution is to keep it simple. Don’t slack off, just do it. Yeah that may be easier said then done but try it you might just surprise yourself. As for me, I don’t have a long list of resolutions to keep up with. I’m going the simple route. My New Years resolution is to read the Bible in it’s entirety. You might think, that’s not simple. True the Bible is not a easy task to tackle but it is just one task. With the focus on just that task I have confidence I can get it done. As for you, what’s your New Years resolution?

 

New Release ‘Wreckless’ a short story

It’s time for a new release from Love Is A Drug, Ink! Writing this story was exciting for me. Being that it is a short story my challenge was to compact the love, drama, action, mystery, and thrills that I write in my full novels. There was no room for error and I couldn’t fall short. I must say, after finishing it and re reading, I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve been a author since 2010. My debut novel was Trouble In Paradise and it took me nine months to write it. I always played with the possibility of writing a short story but always saw it as too big of a challenge. You might say, why? Well because it couldn’t miss anything the full novel had. In other words, it had to have a beginning, a middle, and a end. Let’s face it, I’m pretty long winded. My husband says when I talk about something I go on, and on, and on, about it without coming to an end quickly.

After noticing it myself, I thought that’s just me long winded, so now you can see why writing this story was the biggest challenge. With all that said this story goes off with a bang! It was a joy to read. At one point I call my self proof reading for errors when it came back from my editor and midway into the story I realized I hadn’t been proof reading at all because I’d gotten so caught up into the story. That was a super plus, if I can captivate myself, surely I can captivate you! This story will be priced for $1.99 on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Kobo, ibook, and smashwords. It will be available on ebook. Only my full novels will be available for paperback. Wreckless releases on New Years Eve, what a great way to bring in the New Year! Below is the book blurb, check it out!

Jasmine Johnson wants nothing more than to be swept off her feet by classmate and cutie Maurice Desmon Jones. Everything about him, from his obvious confidence to his charisma, makes her melt like ice cream on a sundae cone.

One day, someone threatens to challenge her for his affection and Jasmine goes into a jealous rage, unable to control her emotions.

Obsession sends her over the edge and there is no turning back. In the eye of a brewing storm, she has to come up with a clever way to get out of the catastrophe she has created and she won’t give up, even if she has to die trying.
