What’s Next For Sheena Binkley?

Hello everyone! And Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I have been so busy that I forgot that In Love With My Best Friend was released on this day four years ago. That day, I was so proud of myself for doing something that I never imagined doing, and that was publishing a book. Sure, I’ve written books, but I never thought about publishing them. That day still feels like it was yesterday because many of the things that I have experienced then I’m still experiencing now as an author.

After In Love With My Best Friend, several other books were released, including Our Love, and Love Unbroken; but the book that really got me noticed among the romance genre was A Chance At Love. Not only did that book reach #1 in the African-American Women’s Fiction category, but it also became my best-selling book of my career. That story made readers want to read more of my stories, which made me a bit surprised, but also happy, because my dream was coming true.

As time progressed, so has the books that were released. From romance, to new adult, to even urban, I wanted to tackle all of the genres that I were interested in and have even read as a reader. I wanted readers to relate to my stories as I would when I read another author’s work, because that’s what being an author is all about. You want to be able to create a story that not only touches you as the writer, but touch your audience as well.

Throughout my writing journey, I have seen a lot of success, including another #1 best-seller with Trust Me, great series with In Love With My Best Friend,  and Love, Life, & Happiness, signed with an urban publisher, launched several great series that were edge of your seat drama, and even started my own publishing company. There have been a few bumps in the road and probably burnt some bridges with some people, but no matter what, I have learned a lot along the way. I’m still learning to this day, which to me helped me become a better writer. As I look back on everything, I know I have came a long way, and I know there is still some room for improvement. I may not have the recognition as other authors, but I’m still proud of what I have accomplished so far in my career. There may be some things that I wish I could change, but it’s all a learning process.

Now that I have been in the writing business for four years, there are still some things that I want to accomplish, including reaching a bigger audience and writing more books. One of the books that I will be working on will be If It Isn’t Love, which will be a spin-off from the Something Just Ain’t Right series. This will be Lamar and Tamara’s story as readers get to learn more about their relationship. Not only that, but I will be doing a short story involving Hayley and Morgan, which I will probably add to If It Isn’t Love (I’ll keep you all updated on that soon).

Not only that, but I will be doing another spin-off from the Love, Life, & Happiness series involving Cheryl and Marcus as well as write the third book from The Love Chronicles series, How Deep Is Your Love. The third book from The Lost Story will also be released sometime this summer.

I will also continue with my short story, Love. I released the first three chapters last year, but I will relaunch it in the next few weeks with the entire story released on my blog. I think you will love the story of Sophia and Patrick.

Love

One of the things I have always been grateful for is you, the readers. Thank you so much for supporting me and reading my stories. I’m extremely grateful for the readers who have stuck by me and have been a reader since my first story; so for that, I’m thankful and blessed that you all continued to support me.

Again, thank you. 🙂

At Any Moment by Brenna Aubrey
(Gaming the System #3)
Publication date: October 31st 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Synopsis:
It’s Dangerous to Go Alone!

Mia Strong never expected to be deciding the rest of her life at age twenty-two. Is she willing to become a human lab rat? Does she need to write a will? Does she ever want a family–and if so, with whom? She can’t dodge the tough questions–not if she plans to live to see twenty-three. With her life hanging in the balance, Mia wants nothing more than to rely on Adam Drake, but he’s hurt her before.

You Must Gather Your Party Before Venturing Forth…

Adam Drake knows that he’s made mistakes, but when he discovers what Mia’s facing, he realizes how much those mistakes could cost him. Now he has to choose between being the man who can save Mia’s life or the man she can love. No matter how much it tears him apart, Adam knows he has to put Mia first…even if it means he’s out of the picture entirely.

Will their love survive this epic battle or is it game over?

This novel is the third and final book in Adam and Mia’s trilogy, but they will be featured in future Gaming the System novels.

Monica:

I’d always been unlucky with love. No matter how much I’ve tried to experience it, something always happens to make me turn away. When I was with Donnell Patterson, I believed I finally had a chance at it, but I ended up destroying it by being selfish. Now, I have a second chance with Zack Hall. He’s a woman’s dream – smart, generous, and sexy as hell. But now that I’m with someone else, why does Donnell keep coming back into my thoughts? Should I let go of the past, and start with someone new, or go back to the person that I’ve always considered my one true love?

Donnell:

Monica Taylor and I have had our shares of ups and downs. Honestly, we had more downs than ups. But no matter what we did to each other, we always found our way back to each other; but she did the unthinkable when she tried to hook up with Marcus Walker. Now, I’m with someone new, who makes me really happy. Dominique Sawyer is amazing; not only is she smart and beautiful, but she’s also drama-free. But if she’s so perfect, why do I keep thinking about the person who has continuously broke my heart?

Reviews, Reviews, Reviews!!!

Hi everyone! With all authors, reviews are very important so interested readers can not only know other readers’ opinions about a particular book, but also to express their thoughts on a certain character, scene, or the book overall. For me, as a reader and an author, I love to read reviews, because honestly, that’s how I’m able to determine if I want to purchase a certain book. Sometimes, the blurb will grab my attention, but majority of the time, I will purchase a book based on the reviews alone.

For many authors, especially unknown ones, many curious readers will probably look at reviews to see if it’s worth their time and money. That was the case with me when I first started out. As much as I love the readers who spend their hard-earned money to purchase and read all of my stories, no one ever comments on them. If you have ever purchased or read any of my books, please post a review on any retailer website or book websites, such as Goodreads. That way other readers can read your thoughts. Not only that, but I will be able to know if there are any improvements I will need to do on future stories (there are always room for improvement). So it would be beneficial as well as informative. But for those of you who have posted reviews on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Goodreads, I sincerely thank you for it.

Again, thank you to everyone who have purchased all of my books, especially the latest release, The Wedding, Part II. Writing is something I love to do and will continue to do for years to come 🙂

It’s Live!!!!
