#WriterWednesday - Summer 2015 Writing Update

June was a busy, uber productive month for me and I couldn't be happier about it! I finished another piece of the Been So Long series puzzle, a companion novel that chronicles the life of Christina Dandridge, the mother of the main character in the series. The book was not easy to write and at times I wasn't sure if I would ever finish writing it, but I did and I am too thrilled about it!

Here's the blurb:

Born to an interracial couple in Arkansas circa 1960, Christina Dandridge’s life was tumultuous from the start with things only growing worse as the years passed. Wrought with abuse and abandonment, Christina’s life is a journey of ups and downs and trials and triumphs.

This is a companion novel to the Been So Long series, chronicling the life on Mona Lisa’s mother and setting the stage for the dysfunction that plagued the lives of both Mona-Lisa and her sister, Cleo.

Cover reveal coming soon! Release date: 9/1/15.

What else am I working on?

Sedução (Seduction): a prequel to Ain't Nobody which gives you a little insight into how Victor started his very unique career. This story is packed with a little heat and a whole lot of drama. I'm hoping to be finished writing it by the end of July with a projected publication near the end of the year.

- See Me, Too: a sequel to the novel, See Me, which catches the reader up on the goings on in Olivia's, Ben's, Jason's, and a few more old characters' lives while new characters are introduced. Old skeletons have lasting effects on many of the characters and there may be some new secrets revealed.

It's about 30% complete. Hoping to finish it in a month or two.

-Dragonflies (Fantasy YA Novel): Nerdy Nathan Park has a crush on Elleny Foster, so when he finds her in need of some tutoring, he uses the opportunity to get closer to her, but when she gets too close to him, his deepest darkest secret is revealed.  Can Nathan handle being exposed?

I've just scratched the surface of this book. Hope to have it completed in time for publication sometime next year.

I have several other book ideas floating around in my head, but I'm determined to finish these first.

Thanks for dropping by and as always, be blessed...
