The novella is also the set-up to Lamar and Tamara’s spin-off, If It Isn’t Love, which will be available in January 2018.
What happens when the chaos ends and their normal life begins?

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.
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. 🙂
Hi everyone! The Love Interview series continues today with the breakout couple of the Something Just Ain’t Right series, Hayley & Morgan! Let’s find out what these two been up to since their series ended two years ago.
SB: Hi Hayley and Morgan! This is truly an honor to be sitting down with you two.
Hayley: We’re glad to be here, Sheena.
SB: When your story first came about, it was sort of a transition period for me as I branched out into the urban genre. I didn’t expect for this book to be such a huge success. Readers were shocked to read some of the things that occurred between you two.
SB: Uh, yes! I mean, you two have endured so much. At first, it was just a typical love story, but with you two running from killers and deranged family members, your story was made for a good Lifetime movie.
Hayley: LOL! I wouldn’t go that far.
SB: I said it was. But tell me, if you had to change anything from those moments you two had experienced, what would they be?
Hayley: Probably me getting shot. That’s something I would definitely change.
Morgan: That’s something that I would change, too. I never want to experience that again.
Hayley: The two of us have been through a lot, but it showed a different side to us that I’m glad we were both able to share with each other. That is something that I wouldn’t change.
SB: I really hope you don’t get offended, Hales, but I can see why you fought so hard to be with Morgan. He’s hot!
Hayley: I know.
SB: You’re blushing. That’s so cute!
Hayley: I’m pretty lucky.
Morgan: No, I’m the lucky one. I always had a thing for Hales since we were kids, so I’m extremely blessed that I finally have her.
Hayley: I feel the same way, Morgan.
SB: Speaking of your childhood, let’s talk about Lamar. How is he, by the way?
Morgan: He’s good. Aren’t you interviewing him and Tamara tomorrow?
SB: I am, but I just wanted to see how he’s doing.
Morgan: He’s good.
SB: So things are still good between you two?
Morgan: Yeah; why wouldn’t they be? We resolved all the issues we had with each other and we’re pretty tight now.
Hayley: Especially since we’re all family now.
Morgan: We were always family, but it’s just official since we’re married.
SB: I must say, married life is definitely working for you two.
Hayley: It is. We’re very happy and more in love than ever.
SB: That’s good to hear. And how’s your son, MJ?
Morgan: Morgan Jr. is doing fine. He just turned one last month.
SB: Any more children in the future?
Hayley: We wouldn’t rule it out, but our lives are so hectic right now with me being a talent coordinator and Morgan’s a cop…
SB: Whoa. Morgan, you’re a cop?
Morgan: Hard to believe, huh?
SB: You can say that.
Morgan: After what happened, I felt I should do something that would make a difference, so after Hayley had MJ, I decided to join the force. Of course she didn’t really like the idea.
Hayley: I figured we were in a good place; I didn’t want anything else to happen to you.
Morgan: It won’t, Hales. Besides, I’m more into the white collar crimes. Nothing will happen to me with those.
Hayley: You never know.
SB: Are you investigating a case now?
Morgan: I am, but I can’t discuss it.
SB: That’s understandable. What about your family? Are they still in prison?
Morgan: Yes, they are. They’ll be locked away for a long time, so that we don’t have to worry about.
SB: And Kyle?
Morgan: He’s doing well. He recently got engaged to Demetria, so they’re planning their wedding now.
SB: Wow, I didn’t think those two were still together. But give him my congrats.
Morgan: Of course.
SB: Is there something that you wanted to share with your readers about an upcoming event for you two.
Hayley: Yes! Morgan and I do have something great to share. You approached us to do a short story which we agreed to do. It would be fun for you all to catch up on where our lives are now.
SB: It definitely will be. Again, Morgan and Hayley, thank you so much for taking the time out to talk with me.
Morgan: Anytime, Sheena
Hayley: Of course!
SB: Hayley and Morgan’s short story will be available sometime this summer. It will only be on my blog, so if you are a SJAR fan, you will definitely want to read this! If you haven’t read the series, it is available only on Amazon.
Check back tomorrow as I interview Lamar & Tamara as they discuss the upcoming spin-off to the SJAR series, If It Isn’t Love.
