“Where do you think you’re running off to? Him? Never!” ~ Excerpt from ENTANGLED DREAMS:

If you've been keeping up with Entangled Dreams, you know that our female protagonist, Alexandra Nicole "Nicky", has had a very traumatic childhood and is in a worthless relationship. Now she's met a new man and isn't quite sure. She's tryingif she could just stop making mistakes!

Before you read, remember that I write more than just romance; I write romantic-suspense. Although there is some violence, I will never glorify an act. 


The force behind his assault propelled her body backward against the wall. She struggled to stand upright as she launched herself toward the front door. She managed to get the door open before he grabbed her, sending her plummeting to the walkway.
As she crawled across the concrete to the stairwell, he clawed at her bare legs, his nails digging into her flesh. She managed to disentangle herself from under his grasp, feeling the concrete scrape her naked knees. She struggled to stand again, but he subdued her with a stranglehold.
"Where do you think you’re running off to? Him? Never!"
He started dragging her backward into the apartment, and she kicked and struggled to free herself. Remembering a technique she’d learned as a child, she let herself collapse, deadweight in his arms. Once free, she darted toward her only escape. Just as she made it to the stairwell again, he grabbed her. But this time the force of his attack caused her to lose her balance, and she felt herself falling. The last thing she saw was him reaching out for her.

That was just a teaser, of course. If you missed the first few excerpts of Entangled Dreams, you can read the first three chapters here

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

Now, if you’ve read any of my novels or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings; and as in any fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
