jr- excerpt[9831]

Morgan

Love.

A lot of people take that word for granted. Some do it because they’re scared to be loved by someone, or feel that they shouldn’t be. I have felt that way before, all because of the things I have done. I never thought I was worthy of it.

Until I met Hayley.

Hayley is and always has been the love of my life. When I first laid eyes on her, I knew she would be the one for me, but I let my personal views on love and life get in the way of happiness. When she made me realize how precious life can be, I let all of my past feelings go and just lived. That’s something I haven’t done in a long time. Since I have been with Hayley, I never looked back. Even with all of the bullshit that has happened with us, our love became stronger, which I’m happy for every single day.

Since Hales and I got married, we have been living a pretty normal life. We have a two- yea r-old son, Morgan Jr., who we call MJ. That boy is certainly a handful but I enjoy being a father to him. It’s definitely the highlight of my day. Not only are we parents, but Hales is working as a private event consultant with a high-profiled agency, while I took an extremely different career path. I decided to become a cop.

Yep, a cop.

After the incidents concerning my family, I wanted to give back to society in some sort so I decided to go to the academy. Throughout the training, I kept wondering if I was doing the right thing, but when I looked at what I have been through and the future that I will have with my family, I knew I was making the right decision. Two years later and I was promoted to being a detective. With my new title, I knew one thing I wasn’t going to do and that was abuse my badge like my so called father did. To be honest, I think that was another reason why I went into law enforcement.

Sometimes, I have to laugh at the life that I’m living right now. Me, Morgan Carter, the former womanizer, is talking about happiness and love and living a normal life. That’s something I’ve never experienced, but I’m glad that I’m able to now.

“Morgan! Morgan?!”

I looked over to see Hayley staring at me. She is still as beautiful as when I first laid eyes on her all of those years ago. Her curly hair was now a honey brown color to match her honey skin tone. Her brown eyes looked into mine as she gave me a huge smile and leaned closer to me.

“Hey, baby. I didn’t hear you come in.”

“That was because you were asleep. Long day?”

I slowly sat up from the couch and looked around. I looked down at my clothes realizing that I was still wearing the suit that I’d gone to work in.

“You must really have had a long day if you’re still in your clothes.”

“I guess I laid down as soon as I walked in.” I slowly replied.

“Luckily MJ is staying with my parents tonight, or you probably would have forgotten to pick him up,” Hales said. She paused before speaking again. “Or did you forget that he was spending the night there?”

I sat up on the couch and ran my hand through my hair. “I guess it’s this case I’m working on. Between meeting with the Sergeant and working these damn stakeouts, I guess I just lost track of everything.”

Hayley smiled and sat down beside me. She motioned for me to turn so that my back was facing her.

“I guess a massage is in order then.”

“That would be nice.”

Once her hands were on my body, I immediately relaxed. Just having her near me was all I needed.

“I know you can’t talk about any of your cases, but…”

“You’re right… I can’t. As much as I want to I can’t jeopardize any type of information we have on certain suspects. Not just that but I don’t want to put you or MJ’s life in danger.”

“I understand, baby. I just wanted to understand how your days are with you working on the force. I still find it hard to believe that you’re on the force.”

I chuckled. “I think no one saw that coming.”

She turned me so I could face her again. She ran her fingers through my hair and smiled. “I know why you’re doing it, though. You needed to find a purpose for everything that has happened with your family.”

“Let’s hope I don’t have to deal with any of them again.”

“I hardly doubt it. With Travis, Will, Caroline, and Sophia still in prison and Rick dead, that will be highly unlikely that you’ll come across any of them again.”

I leaned my back on the couch and sighed. “I have thought about it, though. Whether anyone would try and come after us again.”

“Morgan…”

“Hales, even though we have been living this perfect life, we still shouldn’t let our guards down. There could be other people out there who are working with Travis but just haven’t made their move yet.”

“Do you think you’re overreacting a bit? It’s been almost three years, baby. If anyone was going to do anything, they would have done so already.”

“Do you really think that? If anyone does make another move, cop or not, I will be ready.”

Hayley sighed. “Maybe I just got too comfortable with actually living a normal life compared to us always on the run looking over our shoulders.”

“I sort of forgot too, but just for a little while.”

Hayley leaned her head on my shoulder and I wrapped my arms around her. She gave a soft sigh.

“Should we be worried about this now, though? Your cousin is getting married next week, so whatever thoughts you’re having, you shouldn’t worry him about it.”

I caressed her shoulder, knowing she was right, but I can’t stop thinking about it, especially when I have information about Travis being released from prison. I didn’t know if I should tell Hales about it, especially since everything is going so good between us.

I’ll tell her when the time was right. Whenever that may be.

 

jr- guest post[9833]

What is something unique/quirky about you?
I used to play the clarinet in middle school. I was really good at it. I also wanted to be a news reporter and did a news show for a local public access channel when I was in college.

What are some of your pet peeves?
People chewing with their mouths open, and leaving trash in my car.

What inspired you to write this book?
Just Right is a novella that is part of one of my series, Something Just Ain’t Right. I did the series over two years ago, and I figured I should write an update on the main characters of the series. It felt good to go back and write about how the couple of the series changed over the years and what they have accomplished after everything that has happened after the series ended. I think the readers of the series were also happy to read about how much the characters have changed and just to see how they are adjusting to life now.

What can we expect from you in the future?
I just wrapped up the third book, How Deep Is Your Love, from my current series, The Love Chronicles. This book is a romance/new adult novel that is a continuation of the main couple in the series. The story is an emotional roller coaster that readers will experience. I know I did while writing the story, so I know readers will feel the emotions throughout every scene.

Where were you born/grew up at?
I was born and raised in Houston, TX.

If you knew you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
I would spend my last day with my family, and I would do all of the things that I would love to do, including bowling (if I can), going to the beach, and watching the sunset.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
I mainly listen to music to unwind. When I do, I’ll just put my earbuds in, lay back and just relax. Shopping also helps too, lol.

How to find time to write as a parent?
Writing when you’re a parent can be a challenge, lol. My son is 10, so I try to balance everything on a daily basis. I would usually write when he’s asleep, or on my days off from work. When I have a huge deadline, I would either try to write while I have some down time at work. That way, I wouldn’t have to worry about writing as much when I go home.

Advice they would give new authors?
My advice to new authors is to never give up on your dream. There will be critics and naysayers that will criticized your work, but don’t let that discourage you. Also, write because you love to do it, and not for the fame or money; because believe me, sometimes writing is not all it’s cracked up to be. You must have patience and thick skin to be in this industry; if you do it for the wrong reasons, then you shouldn’t be doing it at all.

How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing for about 27 years, since I was 9, but I have been a published author for four years.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
Unique, imaginative, spunky, energetic, & romantic

30 Days 30 Authors – Kay Blake

Now, here’s Kay! 🙂

farmto table(5)

  1. Besides writing, what else do you like to do

Not too long ago I received my bachelor’s in developmental psychology. I am an avid reader. I love books. I loved reading and the written word. I love movies. I love being around my cubs (my kids). So that is usually what I do when I’m not writing.

 

  1. What inspired you to become an author?

I love to write. I love the written word. I originally when I was younger wanted to be a singer, but that dream died once I realized I don’t like performing in front of people. After that I wanted to be a criminal prosecutor but after my first child, that changed. One of the things I have always done was write. I used to write songs, poems, short stories and fan fiction growing up. Writing gives me peace and I honestly enjoy telling a story.

 

  1. What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?

I first published a short story in 2014 which was cool, but I think when I first published my novella Second Time’s a Charm it was surreal. I couldn’t stop smiling. I had it in print and it was seriously amazing. There were no words for that excitement and pride I felt.

 

  1. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

Hopefully I will have a bigger audience of my work. I would love to be signed to one of the big five publishing houses. I just want to create stuff that people enjoy and if I can get a bigger reach and do so living comfortably that is my main goals for the next five years.

 

  1. What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?

Write. Everyday. Even when you don’t want to. Don’t expect things to be prefect. It won’t be. Don’t expect to be J.K Rowling tomorrow most likely that won’t happen. Keep working at your craft. Getting yourself out there and keep going. Also always be yourself in your work. Let your voice shine through in your words.

She’s beautiful. She’s different. She sees him. All of him. And now he wants her more than he’s ever wanted anything.
Can he leave his past demons behind and have the future he never thought he deserved?

farmto table(5)

1. Besides writing, what else do you like to do?

I love to craft. I knit, crochet, and quilt.

2. What inspired you to become an author?

Books inspired me to become an author. I never was much of a tv watcher, even as a kid. And when I turned ten or so I started spending a lot of my summers in the library. I’d leave with as many books as my arms could carry. Reading turned to poetry, poetry to short stories, short stories to novels.

3. What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?

I felt like I gave birth, again. LOL

4. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

My husband and I have a vision for our next five years. My writing related goal is to have a virtual bookshelf full of books and to travel more on writing excursions. I’d also love to expand my editing and publishing services.

5. Do you have any new projects that you are currently working on?

I’m writing on a new romantic suspense novel scheduled for release early 2018. I have a contemporary romance novella coming October 9, 2017 called Hidden Desire. And I have a holiday romance appearing in Holidays Ever After coming December 5, 2017.

6. What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?

Do it! And don’t stop learning your craft.

Synopsis from Black Diamond:

Camille Blackwell, an undercover FBI agent, poses as a jewelry purchaser in an international diamond trading company in hopes of identifying the domestic players in a vicious rebel group suspected of trafficking conflict diamonds.

The Bureau requests CIA renegade Marc Fulton’s assistance with sweeping international intelligence to identify the major rebel organizations with finances and stateside connections strong enough to evade criminal prosecution, despite Camille’s objections.

Sparks fly when Marc and Camille meet, their attraction is instant and tense. However, both resolve to focus on the case. But when Camille receives an encrypted memory stick from a murdered co-worker Marc may be the only person she can trust.

Black Diamond is the eagerly anticipated debut novel by Ja’Nese Dixon. True love, like black diamonds, is rare and precious; but when murder and a persistent criminal threaten a frail relationship, can love triumph?

In a borderless game of cat and mouse, will a chance at happily ever after be thwarted at the deadly scheme of the faceless leader of the Imperial Dynasty?

1. What inspired you to become an author?

Writing comes from my soul. I wouldn’t be myself if I wasn’t a writer. I really believe it’s my calling and fate. I write the genres I write in because I enjoy them and the interest comes from the heart. I write BWWM books because I strongly support interracial relationships. This is a personal lifestyle choice so of course I wanna write something that I’m interested in and that reflects me. That’s why my books come from the heart concerning that aspect. I wanted to write stories that showcase couples in BWWM relationships for readers interested in them.

2.  What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?

My debut novel was published by Simon and Schuster so I was elated. I couldn’t believe it had finally happened because I’d worked so hard for years trying to get someone to notice my work. Unfortunately, my mother passed away around the time the book was released so emotionally I wasn’t there. I was still proud but because of the difficult loss, I became detached from what I’d accomplished and though it was my first novel published, it will always link to a very difficult part of my life.

3. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I don’t like to answer these types of questions. LOL! I’ve been in the writing business 20 years now, and I’ve learned that you can’t plan on anything careerwise or in life. We can hope things turn out as planned but life always throw curveballs so I just go with the flow and execute my goals to the best of my ability from day-to-day.

4. Since you participated in the 31 Days 31 Authors event last year, has anything changed with your career since then? 

Not really, I am still grinding and releasing books and doing my best to keep work going.

5. Do you have any new projects that you are currently working on?

I have completed three installments of the Stripped Series. I am looking for the entire series to be around 4-5 books. Captured (Book 2) is available now and will release October 17th. You can pre-order it at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0751HZN4M/ref=series_rw_dp_sw

I have also completed a Christmas story I will be releasing in Dec. and am getting ready to work on a standalone.
6. What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?

The best advice I would say is to make sure you are writing from the heart and if you aren’t then you won’t last in this business because it’s tough. Also, everyone should research the craft and business side of writing. Be prepared to continue learning and growing because that’s the key to being a good writer.

Excerpt from Stripped:
(Winston confronts Jonathan)

 

Jonathan walked in wearing a black, crew-neck T-shirt and slim-fitting black slacks. “Am I interrupting something?”

“No.” Shauna jumped, rushing to him. “How are you, darling?” She kissed his cheek. “This is Detective Winston Lewis.”

“We finally meet.” Jonathan’s silver-gray eyes danced. “I’m Jonathan Wild. Welcome to my home.”

“Thanks.” Winston kept a stiff tone. “Stay away from Dee.”

Jonathan grinned, glancing at Shauna. “He’s forward like me. I like that, Winston.”

“Don’t make me repeat myself.” He squinted. “Stay away.”

Jonathan patted Shauna’s cheek. “Give us a moment.”

Shauna smiled at Winston, his gaze following her out the room.

“You like what you see?” Jonathan stood next to Winston. “Shauna I mean?”

Winston broke his stare from the door.

“Don’t feel guilty. She’s a beautiful woman. She had me speechless the first time I met her.”

“I have no interest in anyone here. What you’re doing to Dee, it’s not happening, Jonathan. I’m not standing by while you manipulate her.”

“Are we talking about the same woman?” His brows met his forehead. “Because the Deidra Quarter I know wouldn’t let anyone manipulate her.”
“You don’t know a damn thing about her.”

“Did Tran offer you any refreshments—”

“I’m not playing with you.” Winston stood chest-to-chest with him. “Dee’s my woman, and I’m not letting any man take her away from me.”

“Does she realize you think of her as property?” Jonathan sauntered across the stone floor. “I’m flattered to see I threaten you.”

“Kiss my ass. I’m not threatened but you will be if you don’t leave Dee alone.”

“What am I doing to her?” Jonathan stood by the chimney with his arm propped on the mantel. “She’s the one who keeps coming by even when it has nothing to do with the case. You should have this conversation with her.”

“I’m having it with you.” Winston lifted his chin. “You don’t wanna go there with me. I will do whatever I have to, to protect my relationship.”
“Well.” Jonathan made a fist, mocking. “Deidra brings out the animal in you, huh? She’s a grown woman who makes her own decisions. If she wants to see me, then she’ll see me and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

“Why am I getting so worked up?” Winston chuckled. “It’s obvious you’re the killer and doing this to throw Dee off her case.”

“Oh, no.” Jonathan rubbed his buzz cut. “I’m a lover, not a killer. My interest in Deidra has nothing to do with the investigation.”

“I’m warning you.” Winston rushed toward him. “Stay the hell out of our lives.”

“Does Deidra love you?”

Winston gaped, wondering what his angle was for the question. “Of course.”

“Then why so upset?”

“Because you can make her believe anything. That’s what you do with women isn’t it, Jonathan? You got self-esteem issues or something? Think a woman won’t want you unless you manipulate her and lock her in your compound?”

He lowered his head, smirking. “These women beg for my attention.”

“Yeah, because they’re brainwashed and can’t tell if they’re coming or going.”

Jonathan passed a dirty look. “Most times they’re coming.”
