2014? Bring It, Bitch!

HappyNewYearsEveOh, what a year 2013 has been! And it’s about damn time. After three of my friends got jobs they wanted this past year, I said it was my turn. Boy, did Life and the Universe decide to throw me a bone! I know I haven’t blogged much, but that’s just how crazy it’s been. I’m going to share the Top 10 moments of my year with you, and what’s to come in 2014.

1) I have released new books via Just Ink Press from people whom I am proud to call Just Ink Authors.

Impulse final-smIsola dei Sogni, where fantasies and dreams come true. Mia only went as a favor for her sister. Her fantasy was a good book and a bottle of wine. Until she met Dylan. Then her sense disappeared and fantasy took over. Dylan has arrived at Isola dei Sogni to help out—with reluctance and just as a favor. Then he meets Mia.

EnslavedThe gods are flawed . . . and they make awful parentsThe gods are flawed . . . and they make awful parents. Deryck knows first-hand the cruelty of the gods. Three thousand years after his birth, he is still trapped, forced to service humans as an Incubus—unable to choose whom he sleeps with, and living a life completely devoid of love. There is no out for him. No hope. Or so he thought.

NemesisPrince Charming was a putz. Prince Charming number two was even worse. After the last prince ran off without any notice, breaking her heart and their engagement along the way, Nemesis Mussolini swore off men and passed the time kicking ass and slinging drinks, something her mafia father would never approve of.

The DracoveKylie O’Rourke has unwittingly walked into the path of two vampyres—one who wants to use her as a sacrifice, and one who only wishes to win her heart. As she is pulled into their clandestine world, she learns more about her history and the reason behind her horrible nightmares. Master vampyre Cianán searches for the one woman who could take his immortality to the next level—godhood.

Gods and VampyresWar. The act never changes, only its players over thousands of years. When Kylie is taken for use as a sacrifice in an ancient ritual, Grantlund races to save her life, but he has to wait for that perfect moment or all will be lost. Not only does he have to go up against his former Master, Cianán, one of the oldest and most powerful vampyres on Earth, but now the gods are involved, and Cianán has a very prominent one in his corner.

IntoTheDarkness-FinalMagic. Darkness. Choices. Whether or not you believe, there are more mysteries in the universe than man will ever be able to explain. From wanting the truth, to facing demons, Into the Darkness is a dark paranormal story that will take you on a journey to explore your psyche, thrill you, scare you, and leave you with a satisfying read that haunts you. The stories all revolve around a magic object—cursed or blessed, you make the decision.

TemptationWhen Meryl goes to Isola Dei Sogni, she tries to kid herself it’s for her sister, Mia, who desperately needs a break. It has nothing to do with the silhouette of the man on the brochure. A man she had to say goodbye to. A man who is one hunk of gorgeous tiger shifter. No, nothing at all to do with that.

In Too Deep_200x300Meghan Sterling—CIA agent. For six months, she’s been living in Central California under the name Clara Osbourne—and not by choice. The Cold War is over; however, she’s still tasked with infiltrating a potential cell of Russian sympathizers, possibly ex-KGB operatives. The CIA has heard they’ve found a way to render the vast agricultural hub of Fresno, California useless, tainting the produce as well as beef, milk, and poultry produced in the county.

MiM_200x300Prince Charming was a putz. Prince Charming number two was even worse. After the last prince ran off without any notice, breaking her heart and their engagement along the way, Nemesis Mussolini swore off men and passed the time kicking ass and slinging drinks, something her mafia father would never approve of.

MRooker and MeIMG_20130607_1950092) I sat next to Michael Rooker during the ENTIRE weekend of Phoenix Comicon, and that’s when I really became a fan because he’s a pretty awesome guy. I have never seen a celeb so devoted to his fans.

3) During one of only two breaks the freight train of a man took, I got to meet my namesake, Nichelle Nichols, and she is such a wonderful person! So polite, so amazing. After 44 years, it was an honor to meet her. Rooker took the photo for me. 🙂

4) I don’t have breast cancer. YAY! If you knew how much that beast loved the women in my family, you’d understand why this is such an exponentially big deal.

5) I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my B.A. in English…finally! I’m still trying to decide on whether or not to go for my Master’s in Creative Writing or English Literature. I’ll make that decision early this year.

6) I am blessed with an AMAZING new job that I fucking LOVE! A job I’ve wanted for several years now. I am also blessed to have the benefits that come with said job. I love this help desk job so much that even the nocturnal creature I am doesn’t mind waking up at 5:30am.

7) I found a wonderful new doctor who has done for me in two months what others couldn’t do in a much longer period of time. I’m walking straight, I don’t need my cane, and the pain is minimal now. She has me changing my diet and feeling great with the acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatments. I’m looking forward to what’s to come in this realm of my life.

8) Umi is doing well, and we have a new dog, Princess the Chihuahua, who has become a part of our forever family now after her mama and Umi’s good friend, Kathy Slater, passed away a few months ago.

9) I’ve started working on the second Kick-Ass Girls Club novel, Assassin. I’m excited, and I hope you are too! It’s going to be a fantastic ride.

10) And I’m about to launch the Just Ink Press website store soon. Who’s not excited for that?

I hope you all have a wonderful new year and that it is filled with great tidings and blessings.
