You. Are. More.

Slide1

We have a crisis in the world. We have many actually, so many that facing them can be daunting, overwhelming, even to the most seasoned volunteer or advocate.

To be honest, most of them we can only have a minute impact on, at best, but there is one that we can have a profound impact on immediately: ourselves.

Oftentimes we forget that we are a statistic, because, well, who wants to be reduced to a number? The hard truth, though, is we are all numbers on many pages, but not all of them are bad.

Body image. Body positivity. Body love. Self-love. Self-acceptance. Fat acceptance. Size acceptance. Confidence. = Equality.

How you treat yourself, how others treat you, is directly tied to equality.

If you wouldn’t ridicule your best friend, call him or her fat, ugly, worthless, lazy, and every other negative adjective available, then why would you say those things to yourself?

Unknowingly, we have all contributed to this dynamic of inequality throughout the world. We label and segregate based on every factual part of us from gender, race, sexual preference, age, and, more often than most these days, size. We allow the number in our jeans, the number on the scale, to define our worth, to define who we are and what we deserve. We oppress ourselves based on numbers, but numbers have never defined who we were.

The size of my jeans don’t make me a good person or a bad person. The number on the scale doesn’t tell you what I have or haven’t accomplished in life.

But we treat ourselves as though they do.

Another hard truth? We set the precedence. We may not have been the first to put ourselves down, but we’ve allowed the trend to continue.

Before you face the world each day, you must first face yourself.

What you say to yourself each morning defines who you are, the same way that what others say to us defines who they are.

As a mother, of course I wish I could give my children the world. I’d do anything for them. And it took me years to realize that loving myself was doing something for them.

They watch us. They see more than we think and know more than we want them to.

I didn’t want my children looking in the mirror and seeing only what was wrong with them, finding only what made them less than to society. I didn’t want my children growing up lacking in anything, but had forgotten that confidence is the key to everything: health, happiness, success. Equality is treating yourself and others with equal respect, equal acceptance, and equal love. Equality is treating yourself and others the same. Equality means facing yourself and others with equal confidence.

Anyone who follows me on instagram (@christinlovell) knows that I am all about loving who you are, as you are, and I’m the first to do it. I’m far from perfect. I have flaws. I have fat, chub rolls, stretch marks, numerous scars – some sizable, dimples, blemishes, freckles, moles, grey hairs and so much more.

But I love myself anyways.

It wasn’t easy at first. I literally had to start by finding one new thing to love about myself each day when I looked in the mirror. Slowly, but surely, the list grew…until, one day, I loved more than I hated. I accepted more than I rebuked. I came to a place where peace overruled turmoil, where happiness overruled upset, and where equality overruled inequality.

Was it as earth shattering as I expected it to be? No. I didn’t suddenly wake up one day feeling like I could strut around the beach in a two piece.

Would I be willing to do that today? Yes.

Why? Because I believe everyone deserves to be happy, and who the heck can be happy with every imperfection covered and smothered on the beach, beneath the blazing hot sun…or in the water, where your soaking wet layers will cling to every pore on your body, preventing them from breathing? Covering what others deemed as ugly didn’t make them any happier, and it didn’t make me any happier. In fact, it made me miserable.

If you wouldn’t force your best friend to cover up their “imperfections,” then why would you force yourself?

If they don’t like what they see, whether your “flaws” are buried beneath ten layers or naked and bared to the world, they’ll still think the same; they may even speak the same. In fact, they do speak the same. I’ve received similar comments on both fully clothed pictures and less layered photos (on instagram.)

Another truth? What they say has zero impact on who I am as a person. What they say has no reflection on what I deserve, what I’m worth, what I’ve accomplished, what I’m capable of accomplishing, and so much more. Their words have never defined me, and will never define me. Their words have never defined you, and will never define you. Their words have only defined who they are, what they are afraid of, what they fear most, what they are insecure about within themselves.

And that is what the words we speak and think to ourselves each morning say about us.

What you say to yourself defines who you are, the same way what they say to us defines who they are.

I can disregard numbers. I can disregard facts. But I refuse to disregard myself, the same way I refuse to disregard you.

You are more than a profile, more than numbers, statistics and data. You are unique. You are beautiful. You are imperfectly perfect, just as you are. And, whether you are a size 2 or a size 32, you deserve to be happy. You deserve what you believe your best friend deserves. And, slowly, I hope you come to realize that the world will only believe you deserve better if you believe you deserve better.

You will only be happy if you choose to be happy.

And, sometimes, that means choosing to bare more flesh than normal when it’s hot, humid and horrible out.

I am not ashamed of my numbers, for, the numbers are just the numbers. They don’t tell anyone if I’m a good person, if I’m a good mother, sister, friend. They don’t tell you if I’m smart, funny, witty or bright. If my numbers change what some of you think of me, then they change what some of you think of me.

But sharing your numbers won’t change what I think of you; they won’t change how I see you. Your numbers won’t tell me who you are; they will merely tell me what you are…according to more numbers, according to charts, to reports and to statistics.

And you are more than that. I am more than that. We are all more than numbers. We are more than what other people think of us. And the sooner you realize that, the sooner you accept that, the happier you’ll be.

If you are for equality, then you can’t be against yourself. If you are for equality, then you should be for confidence, for acceptance, and for happiness, for one and for all, no matter their numbers. People try to spin it, but, the truth is, my numbers have no bearing on your quality of life, the same way your numbers have no impact on mine. Discriminatory factors are just facts. They don’t reveal character, morals, values or worth.

If you are judging others based on facts, then it’s time you realized: They. Are. More.
If you are judging me now based off my numbers, then it’s time you realized: I. Am. More.
If you are judging yourself based on anything other than heart, then it’s time you realized: You. Are. More.

You. Are. More. – Christin

It’s my birthday.

To be honest, my birthday never felt special. It’s always felt like just another day; it just happens to be the day I was born.

Some birthdays are more reflective than others, though. This year, it is more reflective than most. 2015 is the last year I will be in my twenties, and oh what a decade it’s been. There were so many ups and downs, but, beyond that, your twenties really are about figuring out who you are as a person, and trying to decide what you actually do want in life. But, even once you know those things, it doesn’t mean everything miraculously falls into place.

I know who I am. I know what I deserve, what I’m worthy of. I also know what I want.

But that hasn’t rocked my world the way I thought it would. They don’t tell you all of the hard work between where you are and where you want to be. To a degree, I knew it wouldn’t be easy. But I didn’t know it would be this hard.

I have plenty to be grateful for, but, my life is nothing like I imagined it to be a year before I turn 30. Which means, I have a year to make it that way or a year to make it better than I imagined. Sometimes, things don’t turn out the way we want them to, but they always turn out the way they’re supposed to.

In my twenties, I learned that it’s okay to want; we just have to be able to separate the wants from the needs, the desires from the necessities. There is a clear distinction that needs to be maintained if we want to maintain our humanity.

They say, “knowing is half the battle,” but, really, it’s just the beginning. Knowing gives you a sense of direction, but never gives you a safety net. Be prepared to take some leaps of faith. I’ve made more blind, faith-filled moves in the past few years than I have in all my other years combined, and I plan to make many more before I turn 30. A leap of faith is not a leap of praise, though. Expect of yourself and no one else. Reversely, live the life you want to live, not the life others expect you to live.

Today, I’m defying expectation and living without regret. Today, I’m giving in the biggest way.

Stop what you are doing. Go to Amazon (after 3 a.m. est) and start one-clicking like crazy. Why? Because every single one of my books is free for my birthday. (January 13th, 2015)

Yes. You read that right. Free. F.R.E.E. Zero dollars. Zero cents. Every. Single. Title.

Expect the unexpected, but don’t be afraid to give the unexpected either.

Happy Birthday to me, and Happy Tuesday to you. – Christin

Goodbye 2014.

Slide1

I won’t lie. For my family, 2014 wasn’t a good year. It was a hard year. We faced challenges we had expected but still weren’t prepared for. They say it’s during the toughest times that we see what we’re made of, what we’re capable of, what our potential truly is. But that’s difficult to recognize in the midst of soul-deep heartache.

It wasn’t until my heart started to heal, until I was emotionally able to look back without falling apart, that I was able to acknowledge the good amongst the bad. In the middle of the gloom, between each deliverance of hardship, was joy. There were memories that will have to sustain us for years to come. There were smiles, joy and laughter. There was wonderful. There is always wonderful, if we look hard enough for it.

I have two autistic sons, one of whom is on the low functioning side of the spectrum. They don’t think like me, function like me. It’s a struggle to watch them struggle. What I have to remind myself is: I see the difference, but, this is their normal. Kaleb is a computer genius with an infectious laugh. For the past three years straight he’s talked about being a police officer. He is the safety patrol of our house, regulating us on all things safety. He doesn’t have empathy, but he definitely knows the difference between right and wrong. And Roman has an eye for detail, for mathematical detail, that I’ve never witnessed before. He lines anything and everything up, and he paces back and forth studying his work from every single angle to ensure each item is spaced to perfection; as he adds to the line-up, he readjusts every other item until they are perfectly spaced again. You can put a measuring tape to his rows and everything will be exact; he’s a symmetrical genius with, what I consider, an amazing gift. The cherry on top? This year, he finally said his first word. We weren’t sure if he was ever going to be verbal. Speaking that single word renewed my hope for him.

We lost my children’s grandmother. I can’t say that my heart has healed yet. I miss her more than I ever missed my own mother. It tears me up when Kaleb asks about her. In his naive, uncomprehending mind, he believes she will come back. Every time I have to explain it to him, my heartbreak is renewed. But in the midst of my deep-rooted sorrow is joy, is wonderful. It’s so easy to want to be selfish, to wish I had found a way to keep her here, but that would have meant keeping her in pain, in constant, bone-chilling pain. In the midst of it, I could only see the loss we faced. Looking back, I’m beginning to see the blessing it was. She’s no longer suffering. That’s not something to cry over; it’s something to rejoice over.

There will always be these tiny holes in my heart for the people I’ve lost, for the simple things my children lack. But I always hope, with each new year, that eventually the joy in my life, the blessings, the wonderful, will fill those wells sadness carved.

We’re not in 2015 yet, but I know that the amazing I seek will come. Seek is the key word. Happiness will always be a choice. We choose whether the aching swallows us whole, or, like a kinky erotic romance, it leads to more pleasure.

I’m choosing pleasure. I’m choosing to believe that amazing things are ahead, and then, I’m going to seek them.

I’m saying goodbye to 2014 and entering 2015 with renewed hope, with optimism. Because, even if I lose all I have, I will still have the sweetness of what was, and, therefore, I will still have wonderful.

Each and every one of you is a part of my wonderful, a part of the pile of blessings I say thanks for every day. Thank you for sticking with me, for continually supporting me, for being my wonderful when I felt I had no other. You were the difference in 2014 for my family. If you feel unloved, unwanted, undesired by everyone else in your life, hear me now: I love you, I cherish you, I value you. You are my wonderful. You are the difference in my world; you were the little bit of light in the darkness this year. I adore you and am so thankful for you.

Each and every one of you.

Thank you for getting me through this rough year, and here is to a better, brighter, new year with much more wonderful.

Happy New Year! - Christin

Big Announcement!

Slide1

After many, many, many, many, many months of back and forth, earlier this week, I signed a 15-book publishing deal: an 11-book publishing deal with Permuted Press and a 4-book publishing deal with Post Hill Press. This includes the revision of, edited and expanded versions of, previously published titles and/or series as well as new books y’all have yet to see or read. These deals include electronic books, audio books, (mass distribution) print books, and more.

What can you expect?

Less of me and then more of me. I will be hiding out in my writing cave quite a bit more (more than usual) in the beginning of 2015 before breaking out into the sunshine and interjecting myself across every (social) media platform until you’re sick of me. lol I will be doing my best to keep up with your messages, but as it is, I’m extremely behind. Y’all have overwhelmed me in the best way. I can assure you, though, that I read every comment, every e-mail, and every message. Promise.

What will be affected?

1. The rights to the Vamp Chronicles have officially been signed over to Permuted Press. I fought hard for this series, as I know it means so much to many of you.

The details:
Each title in the Vamp Chronicles series will be revised, expanded, re-edited and reformatted, and each title will receive new cover art. There were 2 short stories previously released as part of this series; those shorts will now be attached to the back of the title before it. (TIoW will be at the end of book 3 and Reflections will be at the end of book 5.) Unfortunately, because each title will be re-copyrighted and will receive a new ISBN number through the Library of Congress, distributors will categorize it as a new title, rather than a previously released title. So those of you who have previously purchased any of the titles in this series, unfortunately, you will not automatically have access to the updated versions. However, many of you have asked for print versions of the Vamp Chronicles, and I’m excited to tell you that they are coming! Not only are they coming, but, at some point, you will be able to walk into your local book store and pick up a copy of Diary of a Vampeen. The print versions will be the updated versions. This and pricing are the single aspects I fought the hardest for. And Michael, the President of Permuted Press and Post Hill Press, fought hard for you as well. He stretched and compromised on a lot. They truly value each and every one of you the way I do, and will be doing all they can to get every book I will be giving them to as many readers as possible, making them as accessible as possible. They are offering fans of this series things I never could, bringing it into places and spaces on a world-wide platform that I never could, and I’m so excited to see where this series goes because of it.

(Re)releases:
The e-books will begin re-releasing in Spring of 2015 (or sooner) and will continue through until the final book in the series is released. (Yes, they have the rights to the previously unreleased final book in the Vamp Chronicles series: The Break of Dawn.) Print is a different ball game. I’ve learned a lot about the print market over the past months speaking with Michael. For instance, what Barnes & Noble will put on their shelves in November, they are typically buying for in Spring. There is a lag that requires precise calculation of the market to determine when the best time to release something would be. A meeting of the minds is happening in January of 2015, and they will prepare a release schedule then of exact dates for as many of my titles as possible. As soon as I have those dates, I will be sharing them with all of you.

2. The rights to the Future Alphas series has officially been signed over to Permuted Press.

The details:
Each title in the Future Alphas series will be re-edited, possibly expanded, and reformatted, and each title will receive new cover art. As with the VC, they will receive new copyrights and will be catalogued as new releases. Michael and his business partners are especially excited about this series for reasons many of you have expressed previously.

(Re)releases:
The e-books will begin re-releasing quickly (probably in Spring of 2015 as well). They also have the rights to the third book in the Future Alphas series, which is previously unreleased, and, as with the VC, the Future Alphas will be going into print. I had a conference call this morning and they are already beginning to set things into motion.

3. The rights to the One Soldier series has officially been signed over to Post Hill Press.

The details:
Each title in the One Soldier series will be re-edited and reformatted, and each title will receive new cover art. As with the others, they will receive new copyrights and will be catalogued as new releases.

(Re)releases:
The e-books will begin re-releasing quickly (again, in Spring of 2015 probably) with a fourth title (not yet released) rounding out the series. Post Hill Press only does mass market print distribution, so this series will likely be bundled and made available for purchase in bookstores nationwide. Post Hill is also looking into audio books for this series, which I’m super excited about. That is a platform that, again, without this contract, y’all would never receive.

4. The rights to a brand new young adult, sci-fi trilogy – Daughter of Dosai – has officially been signed over to Permuted Press.

The details:
This series has it all: emotion, drama, politics, action, suspense, thrill, sci-fi, mythology, romance – it covers so much in three books, with each one leaving you on the edge of your seat for more…hopefully. It’s a series that is ground-breaking in many ways because of the topics, theories and conspiracies it touches on. And it will be my first young adult piece that truly falls within the traditional definition of science fiction and horror. I’m equally nervous and excited about it!

Releases:
The e-books will be released in rapid succession in the first quarter of 2017 (tentative) with a print book (if the final word count is conducive to a single binding) to follow.

I’m so excited about this next chapter in my writing career! (If you can’t tell. I’ve only used the word ‘excited’ a thousand time it feels…)I feel very good about my collaboration with Permuted Press and Post Hill Press, and I know my titles will be in very good hands.

As previously promised, as more solid information is passed on to me, I will begin sharing it with all of you.

I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason. There are moments when you just know things, events, meetings, have been orchestrated by a higher power, and those are the moments when some part of your past seems to align with the present and make sense for the first time. The past four years of writing aligned when I met Michael, and the past six months of negotiating aligned when I signed on the dotted line, and I can’t wait for the next moment in my career when beauty aligns with brilliance and changes everything for the better.

Thank you to each and every one of you for reading my books, no matter the number. Thank you to each and every one of you for continuously supporting me in all I write, in all I release, and in all I continue to do. I have what I have because of each and every one of you. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and the blessing you’ve been to me, my family, my career, and my life as a whole. So often people think they are just one person. Yes. You’re one person. But to every single author who makes a living as a writer full time, you are invaluable. It is all of you collectively buying each release that makes a difference in the life of the author and all of those he or she supports. You are the magic. You are the voice.

You are not the reason we keep writing, but you will always be the reason we keep publishing.

Here’s to 2015 and all it stands to bring for each and every one of us! – Christin

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Despite what my family has endured this year, I know that I still have so much to be grateful for. No matter how bad my worst day is, I will always have something to be thankful for.

This year, my family lost someone pivotal, a vital link in our chain, someone that was a ball of super sticky glue that held us together. I can’t say that my heart has recovered yet. I can’t say that my children’s hearts have recovered yet. But we’re thankful anyways.

It’s so easy to lose sight of our blessings in the day to day shuffle and scuffle. It’s easy to overlook even the smallest things as a positive contributor to your life somehow. If you have something as simple as an automatic coffee maker, you have something to be thankful for. Some people have to hand-grind their beans, then brew it all in one pot over a fire and somehow strain it before serving it. If you have a washer and dryer, you have something a massive portion of the United States doesn’t. It’s always surprising when I come across someone who doesn’t own a pair, because I rely on my own so much, but people still exist that way. They load their kids up, sometimes on a bus, with bags of dirty clothes, soiled materials, and go to the laundry mat.

It really is so easy to lose sight of our blessings.

One that I assure you I’ve never lost sight of is you. I am so grateful, so appreciative, so overwhelmed with emotion every time I think about all of you. You make it possible. You made it possible for my family to eat today. You made it possible for me to pay my rent this month. No matter how I look at it, you’re the reason I am where I am and that my family has what it has. Words can’t express how thankful I am for each and every one of you. Whether you bought one of my books or all of them, you contributed, you helped, you blessed me. You bless me. Each and every one of you are a blessing to me and my family, and I am so thankful for you!

I will be making a large meal today with some traditional Puerto Rican dishes, as my children are half Puerto Rican, and some traditional Southern dishes, as I’m from South Carolina, and no matter where I live, I’ll never be able to kick the Southern out of me. I hope you all enjoy your day, whether you are celebrating with us in the US or not. Above all, though, I hope you realize your blessings, no matter how small, and can open your heart to the meaning of this holiday.

And, when your day is nearing an end, when your full, feeling comatose and utterly spineless, that would be the perfect time to read. And, I happen to have a new release for all of you adults out there. Details and links are below.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! – Christin

A WERE, A BEAR, AND MISTLETOE
(A BBW paranormal holiday romance.)

Curvy Ember is not having a good Christmas. She was jolted awake by her brother, whisked off into the woods – against her will – to a secluded cabin, and then locked inside…by her own flesh and blood.

On the other side of that door, trapped with her, is her true mate, a werebear named Mack. He’s sexy, arrogant, and hates fat women, which means they could never work. Ember knows that, but darn if Mother Nature will let her turn off her attraction to the handsome grizzly. She’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame, even when she doesn’t want to be.

The holidays have always been a time for magic and miracles, though, and this Christmas, the sparks will fly, the claws will come out and the truth will be revealed. After all, Mother Nature never gets it wrong.

Warning: This title contains a feisty werewolf with plenty of excess sexiness, a smoking hot werebear who could charm the panties off of any granny, lots of sass, lots of banter, lots of growling; oh, and lots of flaming hot sexy scenes.

Housekeeping.

I’ve been out of town for a good part of this month. On the upside, I got a *lot* done. On the downside, I’ve still got a lot to do…

VAMP CHRONICLES:

Many of you have messaged me and left comments about the Vamp Chronicles. The books will be re-released in 2015. The final book will be released in 2015. The moment I can provide anymore information, I will. The second I can be very specific, I will. The moment I have anything concrete, I will immediately be rushing to tell you all. I will say that you are not waiting on me at this point, though. (Yes. That was a hint.)

KINDLE UNLIMITED:

You will notice that a healthy amount of my adult titles are now in Kindle Unlimited, a subscription service through Amazon that gives you access to thousands of books for 1 flat rate every month. If you want to learn more, CLICK HERE.

UPCOMING RELEASES:

I have a slew of releases coming up. Essentially, for the next 3 months solid, I have a new title coming out every 2 weeks. The first one – to be released Wednesday, November 26th, 2014 (just in time for Turkey Day) – is a BBW paranormal holiday title. (18 & older.) It’s a read with a lot of sass and angst, but, as always, it has a HEA. I’m really excited about it.

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed this or not, but every year, I release a BBW holiday short, since the year I first began publishing (2011).
2011 – Curvosity (Yup. It was a Christmas title.)
2012 – Her Xmas Present (This one is currently in a box set with a lot of other sexy holiday shorts. CLICK HERE to read more about it.)
2013 – Merry Christmas to Me (This one had a hot guy with an accent. Who doesn’t love one of those?)
2014 – A Were, A Bear and Mistletoe (It’s all in the title. A werewolf. A were-bear. Mistletoe. Oh, and a meddling alpha…or so it seems.)
2014 – A second holiday title will be popping up soon as well, and, dare I say, it’s even more indulgent than the others. Stay tuned.

I will be posting about each new title as it comes time for release.

MAINTENANCE:

Over the next few weeks, you will see a lot of updating happening across social media and this website. Some covers have changed, more covers will change, new releases will be added, out-of-date releases removed…there will be a lot being added, deleted and shuffled around. It will all be condensed as much as possible, more streamlined hopefully, and, overall, much easier to navigate. I’m the type of person who isn’t a fan of clutter anywhere but on a bookshelf. (Too many books = a lot of cramming and overcrowding on my shelves.)

CORRESPONDENCE:

I will be in and out a lot. Communication will be limited mainly to updates on releases rather than any blog-type posts…unless I’m inspired and suddenly have a window of free time that I can afford not to dedicate to penning another title.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the business side of writing/publishing. For most of this year, I was caught up in the administrative side of running this little business I have. I’m really ready to re-focus on the heart of why I write: because it’s my passion, because it’s what I’ve wanted to do for so long, because it’s what I’m driven to do. I would rather be writing than doing many things these days. Sometimes, in order to do that, I really have to unplug and withdraw. I’m in a house with 5 other individuals, 2 dogs, a bird and my “office” is in the center of it all: the dining room. I’ve begun to switch up my schedule. You’ll notice the time-stamp of when I post this. It’s after 3am and I haven’t gone to bed yet. I’m trying to do as much as I can while everyone is in bed asleep because I find I can actually concentrate then. I’ve always been a bit of an insomniac, but I can’t say I’m always a high-functioning one. Coffee gets me through the days…and nights. You do what you have to do, though, right?

Have a great day/night, everyone. Hopefully the next time I post, it will be with the information everyone – including me – has been waiting for. – Christin

 

Another update…and a new release.

Hello lads and lassies.

It’s 10am and I’ve yet to have a cup of coffee, so hopefully this will be a coherent post. I’m going to try to remember everything, but if I miss something, I will address it next time. Promise.

VAMP CHRONICLES:

I know many of you have questions, and, unfortunately, I can’t answer them at the moment. I have nothing definitive to offer you as of this moment. Soon I will, hopefully. I have collected all of your questions, though, and am attempting to gather answers, which I know is cryptic, at best, but, I can’t do any better at the moment. Very soon. Very soon I will have the answers (hopefully) and will pass them all along to you.

As a reminder though, TOMORROW, OCTOBER 31st, Halloween, will be the FINAL day you can purchase any of the currently available Vamp Chronicles titles!

ADULT TITLES:

I have a VERY large handful of titles that will be hitting Kindle Unlimited by tomorrow, October 31st. (Halloween is a big day for me this year.)

Even better, a lot of these titles are being thoroughly edited, re-written in places and expanded in others! Thus far, Merry Christmas to Me has been polished this way and I’m in the middle of doing the same with Curvosity. You will notice some brand new book covers along the way as well. So, get your Kindles ready. If you already own the book, you should have fun reading the updated version. If you don’t own the book yet, go snatch it up for FREE on Kindle Unlimited starting tomorrow!

Here is a list of books that will be hitting Kindle Unlimited:::
Note: All of the edits and updates will not take affect as quickly. By next week they should be updated, though.

SHORTS:
1. Stars and Sparks – an interracial BBW Independence Day short (bwwm)
2. Falling for Cupid – a BBW Valentine’s Day short
3. Her Xmas Present – a USA Today Bestselling BBW Christmas short
4. Merry Christmas to Me – a BBW Christmas short
5. Curvosity – a paranormal (werewolf) BBW Christmas short
6. Culinary Delight – a BBW culinary short
7. Speechless – Delphina’s – of Delphina Reads Too Much – favorite short of mine – a BBW vampire short
8. Hello Stranger – an interracial BBW short (wwbm)
9. Hot Flashes – a humorous BBW senior citizen short (no dirty scenes)

NOVELLA to NOVEL:
1. Summer Nights – an interracial BBW title with lots of sexy scenes between a curvaceous white woman and an extra delicious Puerto Rican
2. Hers (Snowy Mountain Wolves, Book 1) – a f/f paranormal (werewolf) BBW title that ends in a cliffhanger
3. Theirs (Snowy Mountain Wolves, Book 2) – a f/f/m paranormal (werewolf) BBW title that makes you smile wide by the end

NEW RELEASE ALERT:

I also happen to have a brand, spankin’ new title out, and it’s a little different from anything I’ve written so far…which could or couldn’t end well for me, depending on whether you lovely peeps like it.

Even better, it’s part of a box set, meaning you can get my new title, Vixen, PLUS 6 other stories for the super low price of $0.99! (That breaks down to less than $0.15 per title!)
