The Scenario invited some really cool people to go live on air to discuss self-publishing and I'm doing cartwheels in my head because they also invited me to join them! If you're in the Nashville area, tune in and listen live (107.1 FM/103.7 FM) this Saturday between 5-7 PM (CST).

blog tour + giveaway. more than a mistress.

More Than a Mistress is a love story between Sonia Kennedy, a sommelier (aka wine consultant) and Esteban Galiano, an Argentinean restaurateur. Although the relationship starts out in an atypical fashion, where Esteban pursues Sonia and she eventually becomes his mistress—or a kept woman—they fall in love with each other.

To add authenticity to the story, I researched sommeliers and wines and collected wayyyy more information than I needed for the book, so I’ll share a little bit of that with you today.

new release… no more love.

I hope yours is awesome. Mine has been hectic to say the least, but I'm finally at a point where I can relax a little and enjoy it. One of my plans is to tackle my growing reading list. I'm looking for suggestions, too. If you know of any good summer reads, leave a message on my Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram for me.

I  have exciting news! The prequel for Warren Jr.'s novel is finally here! Yes, PREQUEL. *smile* (I decided to write novellas for both Warren "No More Love" and Trent "Baby Love", introducing some of their personalities before I release their novels in the future.)

I've included another peek into No More Love. Enjoy!

no more love… in common.

The Legacy series is growing! I remember when I first introduced the Wilkerson family a couple of years ago. Since then, many of you asked about Paige Scott's family, so I released Baby Love and Love Is. Then some of you wanted to know even more about the Scotts, including Trent and Paige's brother Warren, Jr. Well, it took some time, but Warren very well could have met his match in No More Love.

Meet Warren (junior that is). Just like his late father and namesake, he is a player… except he's not one to get caught up in drama like his dad. There will be no out-of-wedlock babies (or in-wedlock either), no trail of tears in his honor, and damn sure no love. His path is his own and he doesn't have time for distractions - just unattached detours.

Meet Brooke. It doesn't take long for Warren to realize she's the perfect woman - as a player recognizes their own. She gets the rules and expects no exceptions. In fact, she even has a few rules of her own.

But what fun are rules unless they can be broken?

No More Love will not be released until next month, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek anyway.
