Words from the heart…
What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, I had no idea where this publishing journey would take me. There have been ups and downs along the way. There’s the excitement of releasing a new book. Then comes the “am I even good enough” feeling, which sucks. What I am grateful for is whenever I’m feeling down, someone always seems to swoop in exactly when I need it and encourages me to keep on going.
Another thing that encourages me is being able to hold my words in my hands. Words that I’ve sweated and sometimes cried over. Nothing beats that feeling of seeing my hard work come to fruition.
If no one reads another word I write, I can still honestly say I am proud of myself for stepping out on faith and doing something I’ve always dreamt of doing. I am blessed that I get to do this, so I will never take it for granted.
What you can expect from me is that I will continue to work hard and get better during these next twelve months. The TK you see today won’t be the same a year from now. I’m shooting for the stars because it’s in my DNA. I’m doing this for me and for all those in my family who had their dreams cut short. If I can step out on faith, anyone can. Trust me.
I need you!
If you’ve enjoyed any of my books, I humbly ask you to encourage someone else to try me, either by word of mouth or by posting a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Your voice makes all the difference in the world. Thank you so much for your support. It means more to me than you know. 😍
A Young Moon: THE END!
Yesterday, I wrote “the end” to my sixth novel, A Young Moon. I really got engrossed with Asher and Laura, and I hope it shows. Here are some details about the two main characters:
Asher: He’s a rich southern boy who tries to masks the “southern” part when he moves north to Michigan to work his dream job. A dream job his big shot father helped him get. He’s an only child and is used to getting his way. Oh, and he doesn’t date anyone his age. He likes his women nice and seasoned.
Laura: A beautiful Arab American executive who’s fierce and strong. She’s a boss and a mother, but never had a chance to be a lover, thanks to her lame-ass estranged husband. For Laura, it was all work and no play. That’s until she crosses paths with Asher.
While A Young Moon is with my editor, I’ll be switching gears and jumping right into An Insatiable Eventide, the third and “final” Nighttime Cravings installment. I say that in quotes for a reason. 😏
By the way, I have a few surprises in the works that I’m pretty excited about. Can’t wait to share the news with you in the coming months. Make sure you join my reader group, Cherryville, for all the first looks. For example, the cover reveal for A Young Moon happens Tuesday, July 28th, but Cherryville will see it Monday, July 27th!
That’s all for now.
See you soon! ❤️-TK🍒
