Writing Process Global Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Two weeks ago, Lynn Lovegreen hosted me on her blog for the Writing Process Global Blog Hop. Today, I will be giving my take on what inspired me to write as well as host three authors. 🙂

What am I working on?

Currently, I’m getting ready to write the third book in the Something Just Ain’t Right series. I’m also working on re-releasing one of my previous stories, Our Love, as well as gearing up for a new series that is a spin-off from the Love, Life, & Happiness series.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

My work is different from others of its genre because it provide diversity with the main characters.  I love New Adult fiction, so when I began writing, I wanted to focus on characters that were not only strong minded, but also diverse.  That was the concept I had in mind when I wrote the Love, Life, & Happiness series. Although there are starting to be more NA books that feature African-Americans characters, it’s very rare that you would encounter a book, let alone a series, in this genre that have predominately African-American characters.

Why do I write/create what I do?

I love to write in certain genres, especially romance and women’s fiction. I also like to step outside of the box, and that was what I did with my current series, Something Just Ain’t Right. I never thought about doing romantic suspense, but I didn’t want readers to see me only as a romance author. I want to be known for other areas of writing as well. That’s what make being a writer so great, because for me, I have the ability to explore many areas and to develop various characters.

How does my writing/creating process work?

Since I have an 8-year-old son, I usually do all of my writing late at night, when it’s just me and my computer. Music is very important with my writing process because it help create various scenes for my stories. I also create playlists for my stories, which describe my thoughts through a particular scene. There may be times when I would have to revise a scene or two and even go through several rounds of editing, but it’s all worth it once I receive the final result.


Please allow me to introduce you all to three new authors that will be continuing the blog hop. These authors are very talented and have wonderful stories available. Please check out their blogs or pages to learn more about them and their work. 🙂


Té  Russ- Author of Love After War (Available now)


Growing up an introvert, Té Russ found solace in literary arts at an early age. She found reading to be a vehicle to broader horizons and writing a form of self-expression. She began writing love stories in her adolescent years as a way to expel her youthful thoughts of love into words. Since then she has gone from writing stories and thoughts of love in journals to attending college for journalism and falling in love, which has allowed those youthful words of love to blossom into a series of stories in her romance novels. Though she has an immense appreciation for the sheer smell that books collectively exert, she also has found balance to her introverted nature with adrenaline inducing activities. So if she does not have her nose pressed deeply into a book or her pen ticking through a pad, you may also find this mother of three jumping out of airplanes, cheering her husband on at the top of her lungs at MMA fights, buzzing down the interstate on the back of motorcycles, or kayaking.

Alexandra Warren is a twenty-something new author from the middle of the map, Nebraska. She enjoys writing young adult contemporary romance novels.

Alithea Elizabeth- Author of Love On The Track (Coming Soon) 


“A diva is someone who is a perfectionist who does her best in her craft.”-Pattie LaBelle

Those are the words of the legendary Miss. Pattie LaBelle. She sees herself as a Diva in the music world; just like I see myself, Miss. Alithea Elizabeth, as an upcoming Diva in the literary world.

I was born and still do live in the beautiful island of The Bahamas, where I’m currently a student at The College of the Bahamas studying Secondary Education, specializing in History and Geography. I’m actively involved in my community as an Advisor with the Junior Achievement Bahamas. I enjoy reading, writing, traveling, shopping and spending time with my family and friends.

I was in love with writing from an early age, writing all over my mother’s walls.  However, after being put in timeout a few times, my mother gave me a notebook and a pen. From that time, I have always been putting my pen to paper, writing short story about my family and friends or even about my family vacation. It wasn’t until 2012 when I decided to write my debut novel, Love On The Track.  After a few setbacks I got discouraged, but thanks to  supportive family and friends, I’m currently working on publishing my first book in the near future.

Writing is my passion…..


Her Global Blog Hop will be in May.  

The Thursday Interview

Hi everyone!!! Recently, I did an interview with “The Thursday Interview.” Check it out…

No.1 Would you break the law to save a loved one? .. why?

I believe I would. Knowing that my loved one is the person that needs help, I would do everything in my power to help him or her when needed. It’s just a part of loving someone and for them to know that you have their back no matter what. I hope my loved one would do the same for me (which I’m sure of), lol.

No.2 What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

Being alive is just going through the motions, not experiencing life for what it is. With truly living, you’re doing everything that you want to do, experiencing new things, surrounding yourself with great people on a daily basis. It’s also knowing the importance in being happy and living a full life.

No.3 What motivates you to write?

I have a vivid imagination, so I think that’s the inspiration I need to come up with storylines, characters, etc. But I also think it’s my love for writing and being a reader that makes me want to create stories that are interesting and engaging.

No.4 Why do humans want children?

There could be various reasons. Majority of humans want children because they feel they have a tendency to love and take care of others. They have a nature in them to help guide someone in this world. Some may just want children to keep their namesake and to continue the legacy going.

No.5 What was the biggest challenge in creating your book “Trust Me”?

Since this book is a part of a series, the biggest challenge was to create an entire new storyline, but keep the same theme as with the first book, Love Unbroken. At the end, I was able to provide a new focus with characters that were first introduced in the first book, but was able to add more personality so readers could root for them as individuals as well as a couple.

No.6 What is the most important thing you have learned in life so far?

To always live life to the fullest. Do not ever regret the choices that were made in the past or the present and to never doubt yourself.

No.7 How did you come up with the title “Trust Me”?

Since the story is all about giving your all to someone and for that person to do it in return, and believing in that person, regardless of their issues or flaws. With those thoughts in mind, the title fit the story perfectly.

No.8 How do you handle personal criticism?

At first, I couldn’t handle criticism. I would always take it to heart, putting doubt in myself on my decisions and my abilities as a writer. Now, I just let the criticism roll off my back. Not everyone is going to like my work, so now, it’s just something that I have to deal with.

No.9 Why should people read your book?

I believe readers will enjoy this book, because it has every element to a good story: Romance, drama, and hot love scenes. Who wouldn’t want that in a story?!

No.10 Why is there something rather than nothing?

In life, you have to have something to strive for, whether it’s a job or school, or just to be a good person. No one should live life empty and meaningless; everyone should have something they want or long for.

Random Thoughts

Hi everyone!! I have been VERY busy with putting the finishing touches on A Chance at Love as well as writing Trust Me, so of course, I haven’t been able to do a post in quite some time. Now, a random thought came to mind while I was sitting at work (Yes, I still have a 9 to 5). I was thinking, should I post the first chapter of Trust Me for anyone who may be interested in reading it? Since the story comes out next month, I was thinking if I should post the chapter to give everyone a chance to preview Cheryl and Marcus’ story (also to check up with Riana and Shawn).

If you are interested in reading the first chapter, there are a couple of ways to voice your interest. You can do so by replying to this post; you can send me a tweet @ChevonBink, or you can message me on Facebook. If enough readers are interested in reading the first chapter, I will post it on here soon.

A Chance at Love will be available next Friday on Amazon and Barnes and Noble! Make sure to download your copy and see what happens between Tia and Charles. If you loved In Love With My Best Friend, then you will definitely enjoy this story!

Also, I will be announcing the winners to all the recent giveaways on this blog. The announcement will be soon, so stay tuned!
