What’s new? What’s am I working on?


#TGIM Everyone! I was about to do what I’ve been doing for the past several weeks and dive DEEP into my cave but then decided I’ve been too quiet lately and maybe I should explain why!
 
Okay so the plan was after BB18 I was going to prepare for the Orlando cover reveal. *Whispers* Those who attended BB18 have seen both Orlando’s cover and my surprise stand alone covers. Anyway low and behold on my way to the signing a story idea came to me for a completely unrelated book to any of my other books. But it excited me so much I even stopped and bought a notebook along the way to jot the idea down. When I got back from the trip, I did something I rarely do. I wrote the outline for the story so that I could set it aside and work on Orlando’s. Thing is the entire story came to me from beginning to end and I just had to write SOME of it down. Before you know it I’m 50k words into it and I. Cannot. Stop. Writing! Even still before I left to the signing I had several stories I was going back and forth from and the reason I haven’t done the cover reveal is because at this point they’re ALL in and around 40-50k words strong. At this point I have no idea which will be next but rest assured you’ll get one soon and I’m SO FREAKIN excited about all four!
 
Here’s a little about each one without titles, just to give you SOMETHING to look forward to for now!
 
A. Stand alone Romantic thriller told entirely in the h’s POV. It starts off as your typical couple stranded on a deserted island story with the slight twist that the h has no memory of her past before waking on the island. Tom, the H is no help when it comes to her identity since he didn’t know her before boarding the plane and he never even got her name. He dubs her Blue because of her striking blue eyes and it’s what she goes by the whole time she’s on the island. They experience many trials and tribulations of trying to survive. As the time passes they form a bond that becomes romantic and inevitably things get intimate. But the real twist starts when they’re saved and Blue finds out the truth about herself but even more curious the truth, or what she’s TOLD is the real truth about Tom. She’s completely floored and doesn’t know what to think especially because as the time passes nothing is what it seems to be. Her seemingly perfect life isn’t quite as she’s been made to believe. Each time she thinks she’s figured it out and is certain of who’s telling the truth something comes up and turns everything on it’s side again. I’m hoping to keep y’all guessing until the very end. 😉
 
B. Psychological mystery thriller told in THREE POV’s. The serial killer’s POV, the FBI agent leading the case Sebastian aka Bash Valencia, and Andrea’s POV, the person who may hold all the answers to the mystery. Bash a married man, along with his partner Kayla are leading the investigation of a mass poisoning at a fast food restaurant. It’s known early on that Bash’s wife is insecure about how much time he’s been spending with his fairly new very hot female partner. You’ll get a glimpse into the killers head every few chapters and won’t immediately know what Andrea’s involvement in this is. Time is of the essence for the two detectives to solve what’s likely the biggest case of their careers. With the entire world watching and the pressure to catch the killer mounting, Homeland security threatens to take over. After spending countless hours investigating the case they’re suddenly pulled off the case and Kayla falls apart. An innocent effort to console her turns into a “moment” of indiscretion. Immediately regretting it, Bash vows it’ll never happen again, even considers asking for a change in partners. Until the FBI gets a call from Andrea’s legal counsel saying she has information regarding the case but requests to speak specifically to the two agents who’ve been handling the case from the beginning. With Andrea’s help they finally have the major break through they’d been waiting for. But just as they’re getting close to finding the killer, Bash receives an anonymous call from someone claiming to know all about his “affair” with Kayla and threatening to pass on all the info to his wife if he doesn’t back off the case. With Homeland security detectives DYING to take the case from them and Andrea’s story not completely adding up among other strange unexplained discrepancies in the case there are many suspects and hopefully you won’t have a clue about the major twist when the truth comes out about who’s really behind the killings, the threats and WHY. Again I hope to keep you guessing until the very end.
 
C. Contemporary romance: I think it’s easy to guess which story this one is. Starts off as your typical baby-left- at-doorstep story but again, y’all know me. There’s a twist here too. As with most of my Contemp Romance stories this too will be told via dual POV’s. No the h isn’t anyone you’ve met in any of the other stories. She’s brand new to the series. But she is a native to Boyle Heights and a bit of a badass like Lila only not quite as “clean.” She has a kind of a shady past she’ll keep from O for good reason until it comes back and bites her in the ass and all hell breaks lose. It’s one of those scenes I’m DYING to write like when shit hit the fan in FM but I had to wait until I got to that part or it felt like cheating. =/ Very excited about this one especially since you’ll be getting more of Byron and then a glimpse of his exciting story-to-come that WILL feature a crossover character. One I’m certain will have y’all squealing with excitement! =D
 
D.Forbidden Love contemporary romance: Told mainly in the h’s POV but you DO get a taste of what’s going on in the H’s head every several chapters. For those of you into taboo stories this should be right up your alley. Unlike the others I actually have the blurb for this one already written down and you’ll get here NOW! 

It started off as an innocent alliance . . .

When Cami, my buddy’s sixteen-year-old daughter, came to me to vent, I thought I was doing the right thing. I’d listen to her teenage drama and pass along any information her parents should know about.

Only I couldn’t pass along what she confided in me about—her abusive father.

After assuring me she had a plan all set and would leave the moment she turned eighteen, I promised not to say or do anything that would land her in foster care. For almost a year, I was there to lend an ear as our innocent bond slowly grew stronger.

Until shit hit the fan.

Her parents had taken me into their home as a trusted friend in need. So, when they found out, they accused me of betraying their trust by luring their underage daughter into what they referred to as a secret and inappropriate relationship.

Months after being banished from their home and Cami’s life forever, I still couldn’t shake the guilt of leaving her in that abusive home. But I had too much to lose if I didn’t just walk away. Now that she’s reached out with a desperate plea for me to harbor her just until she’s eighteen, there’s no way I can refuse, despite the risk being so much bigger than when this all started . . .

 

So there you have it, folks. I know it seems I’ve been off the radar but I’ve just been SO BUSY writing I keep having to pull myself out of my cave for some air. Mind you these are only four of the MANY that are constantly buzzing in my head. Even as I was writing this post I kept stopping to write. So while I STARTED this post early this morning it’s now nearly noon and I’m finally getting around to hitting post. =/ Have a great week everyone and feel free to ask away if you have any questions. I LOVE talking about my WIP’s!
