I’m feeling a bit …

I feel a little lost and out of bounds. Why do you ask? Well, I’ve been gone for so long that I’ve lost my momentum. I don’t regret my decision. I’m happier now than I’ve been for a long time. I just miss writing and communicating with my readers.

Some of them have moved on. 

giphy

I miss you!

But I miss you guys. I really do. I started editing my next book and I’m halfway done ith the one that comes after it.

So what can I do to get you back on my team?

don-t-be-shy-o

I just want you guys to know that I do appreciate you. I do. I really do!

I love u

Thank you guys for your support by buying my books without the promotion. Thank you for the messages to check up on me. Thank you for continuing to interact with my page even with my absence. 

So I wanted to share a piece I was working on with a group of writers. It was a new experience for me because it was a different genre. It’s only my part and I hope you enjoy it.

Mystery and Mayhem
Corina Legret

Corina woke up in her bed with no recollection of the night before. The last thing she remembers is the beautiful man that she danced with who looked a lot like the man who haunted her dreams almost every night. She rolled over and her body responded in pain. God, what happened last night. She thought to herself.

She opens her eyes and slowly sits up. At a snail’s pace, she  walks over to her bathroom and stands in front of the mirror. What the hell happened to my arms? She says out loud as she touches the light scratch marks on her forearms. With a panic, she quickly rips off her dress to inspect the rest of her body. She breathes a sigh of relief when she doesn’t find any more scratches on her.

As she reaches for a hair tie off of the counter so that she can place her hair in a messy bun, something catches her eye in the palm of her hand. It’s a name and number. Rebel she says out loud to herself.

What kind of a name is Rebel she mutters to herself. Then something clicks in her brain. It’s him. She rushes out of the bathroom to look for something more permanent to save his number on. She reaches into her bedside table and pulls out paper and pen. She stares at the paper and his brown eyes flashes in front of her face.

She puts his number back into the draw and returns to the bathroom. She turns on the water to let it warm up a bit. A few moments later she steps into the shower and she lets her mind wander back to the night before. Her body begins to remember his hands on her and she begins to feel a tingle all over her body. Then out of nowhere a pair of glowing brownish yellow eyes appear in her thoughts.

What the hell was that? She asks herself as she steps out of the shower. The eyes looked so familiar.She thought as she slipped into her usual outfit of slacks and plain white shirt, along with her coat. She also felt like the eyes were watching her. She shivered and she wasn’t sure if it was out of fear or excitement.

She was running late so she decided she would just make herself a cup of instant coffee. Why do I feel like I know who those eyes belong to? She says to herself as she pours her coffee to go. On her way out she pets Oscar as she always does. When she reaches the front door she rushes back into her bedroom and grabs the paper with the number. Just in case. She says to herself as she walks out of her house. Because she was running late she didn’t have time to admire her surroundings.

“Did you enjoy yourself last night?” Janice asks with a knowing smile as she walks into the office. Corina frowns at her and stops in her tracks. “What are you talking about?” She asks. “Well, you left with that hot guy you were dancing with. So I assumed you had a good night.” Corina does her best to try to remember what happened last night and she comes up blank.

“Hey, Janice.” She says as she walks towards Janice’s desk. ” I need you to look up this name and number for me.” She hands Janice the piece of paper and heads towards her office. As she gets to her office door she hears Janice  say,”What kind of name is Rebel?” Corina smiles to herself.

Rebel Black

Corina. He repeats the name over and over in his head. When he feels like he’s about to go mad he lets out a roaring scream.

He had been in the woods for a few hours. He had to wait until it got dark to find a way home. He wasn’t sure exactly where he was and he didn’t want to get caught.

After a few hours. He started to get impatient. I need to get out of here. He says to himself as he looks around. He sits up and closes his eyes and he begins to listen to his surroundings. At a distance, he can hear cars passing. He gets up and heads toward the sound.

After about an hour of walking, he sees the road. It’s quite busy. It’s state road 17. He sighs and sits. This can’t get any worse. He thinks to himself.

His stomach begins to rumble. Great. He murmurs annoyed with himself.

He inhales deeply and he smells food. But, it seems like it’s a good distance off. With resignation, he gets up and begins to follow his nose in the shadows of the trees. How he would get the food was a problem he would worry about when he got to the food.

It’s that time again! …

My fourth book! This is my fourth book and I still feel like I’m about to hurl! Writing this book was really fun for me. The new character introduced in this book is very special to me and I can’t wait for you guys to meet him Trust me you’ll love him!!!after the heartbreak

After the Heartbreak (Undying Love #2.5) by Isabelle Connors

Blurb:
It’s the anniversary of our first time. I can never forget it because it’s the only time that I’ve ever felt whole. I am nothing without you and I can never forget the day when you gave yourself to me … so I wanted you to remember too.

Excerpt:

I look up to find the most intense dark brown eyes I’ve ever looked into on the most ruggedly handsome guy I’ve ever seen. His dark wavy hair compliments his dark eyes and tan skin. Usually, I like men clean shaved, but the scruff that he’s rocking only adds to his raw and carnal sex appeal. He oozes confidence in a way that doesn’t come across as arrogant. He is perfection on two legs.

I want to thank everyone who has stuck with this series from the beginning! You guys are seriously AWESOME!

 

Thank+you+for+the+gif+_1702c7a2b305471dd44c75a00aeadb32

So, with that I must return to the writing cave. It was fun socializing with humans. But, the voices in my head demand to be heard! But, before I go I thought I should share the cover again, you know … in case you forgot what it looked like.

We Are Live!!!!

This is my third go around and I’m still so very nervous! Especially, with this mini book. The story is really special to me and I truly hope that you guys love it!nervous

You’ve already seen the cover. Now, it’s time to get to know the characters. I truly love Skylar! He is an enigma. He can be a cocky condescending jerk. You find that out in The Before. But when he loves, he loves hard! You see how hard he can love in The Introduction. You also see that he’s not perfect in The Heartbreak.

I don’t know if I’m biased (I probably am), but I feel like he’s a well-rounded character with flaws just like you or me.

So, thank you to everyone who has supported me and purchased, reviewed, or shared my book! It truly means a lot to me.

How Does A New Author Get Their Name Out?

So, I’m a new Indie author. My current genre is YA/Romance. In the future, I would like to venture onto NA/Romance or Contemporary Romance.

With so many different authors in this genre it’s quite hard to breakthrough. It’s even harder for readers to trust you and take a leap and read new Indie Authors. So, my question is, what should a new author do to get their names out there? What should new authors do to get people to buy their books?

IMG_0402

After the shock that your new book has not skyrocketed into the bestsellers list; or hasn’t become the next Twilight or Fifty Shades wears off. I would like to congratulate you into the reality of being an author in the 21st century.

:O

So, really what should I do? Am I doing things right? (Prepare for shameless plugs).

I’ve scowered the internet for persons to review my books. Some, persons I’ve sent my book to and I’ve heard crickets *sigh*. Some, have me on a waiting list. (I can deal with that). But, some have been great and have reviewed my books within a few days/weeks. (Thank you for that. You guys know who you are.)

I have a contest on my Facebook page. Great prize by the way. I’m giving away a Kindle.

Contest Time!

I also did a giveaway on http://www.librarything.com. This is a great site if you want to do a giveaway with an e-book. I think I’ve given almost a hundred books away. But, I’ve only gotten two reviews so far. Still waiting!

I’ve put my books on sale. They are both on sale for 99 pennies everywhere. (Buy links below).

The Introduction

 The Heartbreak
I’ve done blog interviews. I’ve given my books to countless bloggers for reviews. I’ve sent out countless e-mails, some answered and some not. I have signed up for countless free and paid advertisemnet. Although I’m no major star, when I google myself (I had to check Lol) my visiblity isn’t too bad. But, it can be bettter.
So, my question is what else should I or any other new authors do to get our names out there. I know for sure if I ventured into erotica my sales would be a whole lot better, but that’s not what I want to write. So, since that’s not what I write although I I like to read it (don’t judge me) it’s not what I write. So give me some advice. I’m all ears. Comment here or find me on any of my social media accounts and give me your thoughts, ideas or just say hi. I enjoy meeting new people.
