At the end of last year, I shared my title and synopsis for my upcoming Contemporary Romance release, For Brooklyn’s Love. I’ve decided to share all the covers in the Philadelphia Heights Series, with you guys. I’m also going to share Granting Tessa’s Wish, synopsis this week.
Why am I revealing so much so soon? Well, one, many of my fellow authors will tell you, when we know our readers are counting on us to release a book, it keeps us accountable. It also keeps the excitement up. Two, I feel like you guys have been waiting two years for me to release a book. Unfortunately, this is why I’m separating from my New York publisher – to regain creative control.
With that being said, I know you want to know when my next book will be released. My prayer is that it will be released on Valentine’s Day. However, I have to operate in excellence and make sure that I’ve severed all ties with my publisher before hitting the publish button. However, please know that For Brooklyn’s Love is completed, going through second round edits and will be released soon (let’s keep praying).
Lastly, I miss you guys. The feedback, the adrenaline rush of waiting to see how you feel about my new characters and the jitters of release day. I miss it all. Will you love Brooklyn and Barry as much as I do? Will you understand her story? Will you appreciate that I write romance without sex? I believe a great story can be told without sexual scenes and that we all are old enough to use our imaginations (LOL).
One of my favorite authors, Sheila Copeland, was a great example of this. I loved every last one of her books and let me tell you, she killed the romance scene. She is a Christian author, like me, and was able to pull me in without using sex. Kimberla Lawson Roby is another one who showed me it can be done.
I still love some of my favorite writers, B. Love, Christina C. Jones, Alexandria House, Stephanie Nicole Norris and my new fave, Nia Forrester and I will continue to support. But I know God led me to write Contemporary Romance with Christian elements because there are a group of women out there, like me, who long to please God in our real lives and in the entertainment we choose.
