Hi everyone! Wow, I cannot believe it has been a year since Trust Me was released! I still remembered release day and there was a bit of a delay with Amazon and how readers were frantically asking when would it be available. That was when I knew that this book was going to be huge; and it definitely was.
Trust Me is the second book in the Love, Life, & Happiness series and it’s Cheryl and Marcus’ story. When I wrote this story, I knew the readers would love it, but I just didn’t know how much. To this day, Trust Me is still the most talked about book, not only in the LLH series, but for all of my books, period. Everyone automatically fell in love with this couple, especially with Marcus. I have to admit, Marcus is one of my most popular characters, mainly because of how he was represented in the series. He was the womanizer who changed his ways all in part of one woman. He’s likable and so damn sexy (especially with the scene after his and Cheryl’s first date). Not only did Cheryl change him for the better, but he did the same for her, as she was able to let go of her past and let herself fall in love.
Trust Me was my second #1 best-seller on Amazon, as it was the top seller on the African-American Women’s Fiction and African-American Romance lists for two weeks. Based on readers’ interaction, this was the book that helped gain popularity for the series, as it not only focus on the two main characters, but also with the other characters in the series.
As always, I have to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported this book. I still get emails and comments from readers regarding this book and how great it is. For that, I will be giving away copies of this book for free today, only on Smashwords. This will give a chance for those who have not read the book to download and see why this story is so great. The code for the free download is: WT53G.
If you have any favorite scenes from the story, please feel free to put them in the comment section below. 🙂
Happy Sunday!!! One year ago tomorrow, A Chance at Love was released on Amazon! It’s hard to imagine that it has been a year since this book was released. For those of you who do not know, I never intended to make a series out of In Love With My Best Friend; it was meant to be a standalone book; but after receiving emails and comments from readers asking about Tia and Charles, I had to write a book about them. And that was how A Chance at Love was created. Never in my wildest dreams did I realize how popular this book was going to be.
After it was released, the book went to #1 on the African-American Women’s Fiction best-seller’s list and stayed at the top spot for three weeks, making it my first #1 best-selling book on Amazon. Not only that, but it created a huge fan base for not only Tia and Charles, but also for the original couple of the series, Camille and Trevor. This was the book that had readers talking, which was pretty good considering this was a book I was never going to write.
For that, I have to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported this book. This was such a fun book to write and I still have great memories of these wonderful characters.
To celebrate the book’s anniversary, tell me your favorite moment from the book on the comment section below.
Also, here is my favorite song from the book’s playlist, “Can’t Hide Love” by Earth, Wind, & Fire. Every time I hear this song, it makes me think about the book and the relationship that Tia and Charles had throughout the story.
