New Release Date!!!

Hi everyone!! Hope you all are having a wonderful day!!

For the past two months, I have been working hard on writing Only You, but of course, with working a full time job, as well as other unexpected events occurred, I won’t be able to make the deadline that was set for Amazon to release the book.

With that being said, I decided to delay the release date to about three weeks and set a new date for September 3rd. I want to be able to take my time to write this story, especially since the last story I’d released was back in November of last year. But I promise you all, the story will be well worth the wait.

For anyone who has already pre-ordered Only You, you will still receive your copy on the new date.

If you haven’t pre-ordered, you still can by clicking on the link below:

It’s My Author Anniversary!!!

Good morning everyone!! I hope you all are having a wonderful week and are getting ready for a great weekend!

I can’t believe it has been eight years since my first book was published. I’m sure you all have probably heard the story before that In Love With My Best Friend was going to be the only book that I was going to release; but that one novella turned into multiple books that I’m so proud of. The road to becoming an author has not been easy for me, but I wouldn’t regret anything that I have experienced during this eight-year journey.

For everyone that has been supporting me from the beginning, I would like to say thank you. Thank you for reading my books, and actually liking them, and just being wonderful. Without you all, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

And I know I’ve been busy with other things, but I promise you all that I will be releasing new books later this year, including the Love, Life, & Happiness spin-off, Only You, so please make sure to pre-order before the release date, which is August 6th.

Here is the synopsis for Only You:

Drew Harrison has always been unlucky in love. Since he’s always focusing on his career, he never took the time to date, let alone pursue a relationship. Now that his residency is on the right path, he’s ready for a bit of romance in his life. With the help of his brother-in-law, Marcus, and cousin-in-law, Shawn, Drew is set out to find the perfect woman, but a series of disastrous blind dates make him want to forget dating all together. But what he doesn’t know is that the perfect woman has always been right in front of him. Will he realize that before it’s too late? 

Kayla Watkins is also unlucky in love. After ending her engagement, she’s ready to see what the dating world is all about; but after a string of bad dates, she realized why she never dated in the first place. When she accidentally collides into Drew at the hospital where he works, she didn’t know the handsome resident is also the guy that her sister, Gina, is always calling a “smug bastard.” She wants to get to know Drew, but after their second meeting, she later learns why her sister calls him that. 

The two continue to run into each other until a crazy encounter unexpectedly puts the two in an awkward situation. As they began to bond, Kayla and Drew soon realize that there is chemistry between them; but an unexpected visitor comes back into both Kayla and Drew’s life, causing their budding relationship to go into a tailspin. Will they be able to get pass the issues they could face, or will the two end things before it even start? 

Check back here for more updates on this new book, along with other projects I have coming up. I also have an author anniversary approaching soon, so to help celebrate, I have an awesome giveaway coming.

Until next time everyone, have a wonderful and blessed week! 🙂

Coming August 6th!!

Hi everyone!! Hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday! A few months have passed since I’d announced that I’ll be writing a new book; but with so much happening at my day job and with other projects going on (I’m currently taking HR courses), I kind of put writing on hold. After many months of deciding on the best time to release my next book, I finally decided on a release date.

Only You, the latest spin-off from the Love, Life, & Happiness series, will be released on August 6th!

Book Update!!

Hi everyone! I hope all is well. I know I have not been posting lately, for which I do apologize for. As many of you may know, I do have a full-time job, so my time has been consumed with handling a few things there, which has delayed my writing time. But not to worry, I have been planning to work on my new story, which is titled Only You. It’s the latest spin-off from the Love, Life, & Happiness series. It will be Drew’s story as he tries to find love, but of course, as any romance story goes, he will find love when he least expects it.

Since this is a LL&H spin-off, you will be getting an update with the crew, as they’re still adjusting to their new lives as successful adults. The story will be released sometime in June, but will be going on pre-order very soon.

Here’s the cover for the story:

Blog Tour : Black, White, & Red All Over by Deann D. Matthews

Write Now Literary is pleased to be organizing a two-week book tour for Black, White and RED All Over by Deeann D. Mathews. The book tour will run February 1-12, 2021.

Genre: Christian Mystery/Suspense

ISBN-13: 978-1735575209

About the Author

Deeann D. Mathews is an author, musician, and fractal artist, from San Francisco, CA. She is the author of Black, White, and RED All Over, the first in a series of clean Christian mysteries, and also the author of Seasons Siblings’ Timeshare Tiff, a fictional take on the famous fall weather of her hometown. She is also the creative director of Praising Pilgrims Music, a small publishing company of music and music-related materials based in San Francisco, California. Ms. Mathews is also actively creating fractal art and other creative works across a variety of disciplines on Peakd.com.

About the Book

Ironwood Hamilton, new captain of police in Tinyville VA, is put at odds with his regional police colleagues when a new and confrontational Black newspaper hits them all with a demand for public release of records about police brutality in Lofton County. With the help of one loyal lieutenant and a relative with a famous name and suitably dangerous temperament, Captain Hamilton must gather the clues to a plan for rogue police action that will eventuate in blood and fire!

Excerpts

“It used to be ‘what’s that black and white and read all over?’ was a joke told about the newspaper, but every newspaper in the hands of racist reactionaries in the South has indeed been red all over – soaked with the blood of innocent Black people brutalized and slaughtered over lies in print that continue to this day.

“No more will we allow the wholesale placarding of racist tomes about ourselves and our children to pass for news. No more will we not have a voice to raise in challenge. No more shall we, the Black populations of Tinyville, Littleburg, Miniopolis, Smallwood, Shortport, Big Loft, and the rural countryside be passively painted as savages while the real savages sit comfortably in places of law, commerce, and politics. Be it known to all Virginia: those days are over! Hereby understand that the Lofton County Free Voice will roar back at the voices of racist reactionary news, beginning in Tinyville, then across Lofton County, then to the uttermost parts of Virginia!”

Captain Ironwood Hamilton and Lieutenant Patrick O’Reilly of Tinyville’s two-man police force stood at the nearest public bulletin board nearest the police station, reading what they had been reading, over and over again, on their regular dawn walk through the town.

The lieutenant was 25 years old, medium height and build, with bright red hair, ruddy skin, green eyes, and a shocking Southern drawl (unless you know the Scotch-Irish history of the southeastern United States).

The captain was 45 years old, six feet tall, sinewy, with iron-gray eyes and hair to match. His features looked like something that those Southern artists who loved to carve Confederates out of marble would have adored – classic, strong features, handsome, calm, and resolute. The slight pinch in those features from the sudden headache the captain was experiencing would of course have been glossed over.

“Wow,” said Lieutenant O’Reilly. “Have ever you read such bombast in all your life, Captain?”

Captain Ironwood Hamilton shook his head slowly, slowly because of the headache that was increasing every second.

“It’s only bombast if the Lofton County Free Voice can’t do what it says. I rather think it can, or at least can make a gallant effort.”

Lieutenant O’Reilly’s green eyes got wide.

“Captain, you’re not serious! A Black newspaper? In Lofton County? They won’t last a week!”
Captain Hamilton shook his head again and restrained his urge to rub his throbbing temples.

“It’s not 1819, and these are not amateurs we are dealing with. Just from this first issue, I know they have a good chunk of money in hand, dedicated people, and good strategic and tactical sense.
