Saturday ramblings

Happy late Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. My husband and I enjoyed our dinner very much and I for one, ate way to much food! I normally don't like the holidays as much since we moved overseas, mainly because holidays are a huge deal with my family. I have a huge family LOL. As in, I have 5 brothers, and aunts and uncles and tons of cousins. It's so big, that I don't know the names of everyone...that sounds bad but I think everyone knows what I mean. But, even though we can't spend Thanksgiving with our family, we did enjoy spending it with friends. My hubs is still eating freaking leftovers, so I guess I did a good job at cooking. We even put up our Christmas tree last night too! It's funny though, cause last year I couldn't put it up. Apparently while moving, we lost a piece to our stand, so we had to improvise! Worked out pretty great in my opinion. 

What do you like to do for the holidays? Is there something special you like to do? Growing up, we would always put up our tree the day after Thanksgiving and wake up super early to go Black Friday shopping. I did do the tree, but no shopping. Which is good for my bank account haha. 

Enough of my ramblings. I do have some news to share. 

In my last post I had said I had writers block. And I did. It was so bad and I was so worried I wouldn't pull out of it. Funny thing though, literally the next day after I made that post, I got a great book idea. I started writing, and even though I didn't get much done, I was so proud. Maybe I just needed a little break, I'm not sure, but you should know I'm very excited I at least wrote more than one paragraph. I'm excited that I've actually been "hearing" characters talk to me again. You have no idea how much this thrills me. Although this new book is looking more to be a novella, I'm still happy I'm slowly getting back at it. 

Another thing you should know, this novella is going to be about the secondary characters in Temptation. You will get some of Viktor and Ava, but this one is all about Trixie and Sebastian. I have had a lot of my beta readers ask for their story, and now that I'm thinking about it, I can see why. Sebastian's part in Temptation was left open and I could've left it that way, but since he's been talking to me, I've decided to go deeper into his story. Trixie, let's just say it's going to be an emotional ride for her. Her story is probably going to make you cry. But, l will give you a little hint.

Trixe is confident, strong, beautiful, but something that she never expected happens, and suddenly her life changes. 

That's all you get ;-) 

I can promise you it will be amazing, or as amazing as I can make it be. This novella is going to be called Addiction, and if you're reading this post, this short story is going to be a lot about some experiences I've recently went through. Maybe y'all will love it, some might hate it, but I'm actually stepping out of my comfort zone again for this book. I don't write these sappy love stories, but lately that's all that I can write. Maybe there's a reason behind it, I honestly don't know. 

BUT, of course there is going to be on kinky stuff. I wouldn't be me without that :-)

Anywho, I hope you're getting excited about a spin off to Temptation as much as I am. I'm shooting to be finished by December, so we shall see. I'll keep you updated, and I'm trying to remember to post...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Until next time,

Life has been crazy...

I know it's been a while since I last blogged. I did great there for a while, and I'm sorry for not being constant with my blogging. Sometimes I honestly don't know what to blog about or what to say. I don't know if all you want to hear is about my books or if you're interested in knowing more about my life and what I've been doing. For the most part, I try to do a bit of both, but other times, I like some things to stay private. I'm a very private person, and I hate when others talk about things that's happened just to get those sympathy votes. I am not that person.

With that being said, yes there has been a recent shitty things that's happened in my life. I will not say what it is. Only those close to me know what is actually going on, but just know for those that have commented or messaged me telling me if I needed anything, or they're thinking of me, THANK YOU.

My husband and I have gotten bad news and some days I don't really know how to move forward from it. But, just know I see where some of you have liked or commented saying you hope all is well, and I really do appreciate that. You guys have no idea how much it means to me to see that. Or even the messages telling me if I need anything to just let you know. I know it sounds crazy, but I really feel a connection to you, and just knowing you care more than I thought, well, it's a great feeling. It's one that I've needed and I hope you know how much I really do appreciate it. I strive on being true to myself, and refusing to be fake. What you see is what you get from me. I'm the same person, even if you've never seen my face or just follow me. Everything I post is not just a front. So when I make these types of posts, please believe me when I say, this is coming from the heart. This is genuinely written, with all the love and appreciation I have for each and every one of you.

Since the bad news, I haven't been able to write. I don't feel the urge to write anything actually, and I hope and pray that changes. I've had a few small ideas coming and going, but the need to type it out isn't there. I've never had this happen to me before and it scares me to death. Writing is my passion. It's my escape and my way of putting these million ideas and thoughts to use. I hope this block doesn't last. I know after I finished Temptation, I took a break, but I had no idea how much shitty news would affect my writing.

So, for those waiting for book 3 of the Worshipped series, I am very sorry it's taking me longer than I had anticipated. I really wanted book 3 to be at least halfway written by now. I just want you guys to hang in there with me. Please be patient with my block and as soon as I start up again, you will be the first to know. I'm going to try and get back at it in December. I have a few ideas to help motivate me into getting back into the crazy world of writing.

I just want to say another THANK YOU to all of my amazing supporters. Even if you never see this, I hope you feel the cyber love from me. Without you, I wouldn't have a reason to continue writing or publishing. You make me want to work my ass off getting you those stories you love, and before I hit publish it was just a hobby. It's still a hobby, but one that I want to work on everyday. I want to get that feeling back. Just know, I'm not giving up. I'm here to stay and I'll fight to get that writing urge back.
