SAY IT WITH ME…FINALLY!!!
If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll know I was having quite the panic attack yesterday! I submitted my kindle file to KDP at 10:30 a.m. expecting it to go into publishing mode within a few hours. WRONG. It was ‘in review’ all day. Literally all day. I finally went to bed sometime around 1 a.m. disheartened that my release day might be ruined, but when I awoke, it was LIVE! Thank the Lord LOL! I can breathe!
But before I start dropping purchase links and all that good stuff, I want to share with ya’ll my acknowledgments, because personally, it’s as important as the story itself, if not more!
Almost a year flew by since I Am Lioness was released, but Hear Me Roar is finally here! I can’t tell you all how happy I am this story is out for the world to read, mostly because I didn’t think it was possible. When I first sat down to write it, I had no clue what I wanted to do other than incorporate Maya, and of course Hazel going Pro. Other than that, my mind was a blank hole. I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to get it together and that even if I did, I’d fail my readers with a story that lacked the ferocity they remembered and wanted more of. But Knox and Hazel proved to be the fierce characters I’d loved since I first stepped into their world. Once I got to writing, it took off like lightning. I actually got it written in two and a half months. That’s a huge milestone for me! I’m usually such a slow writer, but the story just took on a mind of it’s own, and I powered through it. I hope it’s everything you all wanted out of their finale and maybe even a little more. I’m sad to see them go, but I’m also excited for what’s to come.
With that being said, every publishing journey has its moments of both trials and triumphs, and I want to take a moment to thank the people who saw me through this one.
To Mia, my ride or die- Thank you for always being there. Thank you for inspiring me, for pushing me, and for believing in me. You’re the bestest friend any girl could ever ask for. I love you to moon, across the pond, and back a million times.
To my Devils- all of you…thank you. Our little group has become my safe haven. Getting to know you and building great friendships has made this journey incredible. Your love and support means the world to me.
To my Diamonds- though most of you are new, I am so very thankful to have you all on my team. Thank you for taking a risk and jumping along for this crazy ride with me.
To my editor, Jenn- you, lady, are amazing. You have the patience of a saint and a heart of pure gold. I’m very lucky and so very thankful to have you in my life. Thank you for all that you do! I love you!
To my cover designer, Mary- there aren’t enough words to say thank you for creating these beautiful covers. You took your time, were extra patient when I asked for a change, and you never ever complained. I’m proud to say my books are a Passion Creation!
And lastly but certainly not least, to my readers- YOU are my rockstars. Thank you for reading, thank you for loving my characters, my worlds, my stories. They’re all possible because of YOU.
I tried not to ramble this time, but it’s never easy. I just feel like all of you need to be acknowledged because after all, these books would not be possible without you!
So now, without further ado…keep on scrolling for purchase links, GIVEAWAY deets, and release party info!
Title: Hear Me Roar (The Bloodshed Duet Book 2)
Genre: Erotic Suspense/New Adult
Release date: October 12th
With strength comes dependence.
I thought I had it all.
The Title. The Pro status. The man.
I thought I’d finally left the past where it belonged, thought the future would be nothing but a bright ray of light with Knox by my side.
I was wrong.
In seeking answers, I opened the doorway to a terrifying, psychotic ride no one was prepared for. And through that very door, the past -both his and mine- somehow wove its way as one and slithered back into our lives, creating a fresh hell that stirred doubt and resentment within us.
Will our bond, our love, be strong enough to supersede the forces threatening to break us, or will we swiftly crumble to the ground, piece by piece?
But wait, there’s more!
