Speaking of serials... 🐾 The 738 page monster that is #Fearless started life as a four-part serial, released in the fall of 2014. I started writing it out of spite after my fic was plagiarized, but quickly got sucked into the process. Those initial releases were tiny by comparison, but I had excited readers, and they felt huge at the time. Surreal, almost. Two million words later, and, wow, it feels so often like I go nowhere fast, but SO MUCH has happened in the world of this series since the very first Part One. Thanks for coming along on the ride, everyone. ❤️ There's more to come. 🐊🐾#amwriting #writerslife #DartmoorSeries #LeanDogsMC #books #series #bikers #outlaw #familydrama #darkreads #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #contemporaryfiction #LordHaveMercy #author #authorsofinstagram #bookworm #bibliophile
Book update! So as I mentioned a little while ago, I am going to be publishing my first children’s book soon and I want to start telling you a little bit more about it.
Lost Property is about a place where all the lost items in the world end up, and a boy called Ben who finds himself there on Christmas Eve, while looking for a model aeroplane that he built with his granddad. He meets Rodney Treacle, an elf in a lime green suit who promises to help him. From the dizzy heights of Umbrella Mountain to the creepy aisle of socks, they search all over Lost Property, but when the aisles start to shrink and boxes explode, Ben begins to wonder if someone is out to get him. -
As things start to come together I will post more quotes and more illustrations and you can follow @onegraydot for even more sneak peeks! Scroll across to see an early character sketch of Ben. .

Quel est selon vous le meilleur endroit pour écrire? 🖋
J'aime bien les cafés où on a la possibilité de voir les gens dans leur quotidien. C'est de l'espionnage, mais c'est gentil 😅

"Could I be any more mortified?" She resorted to the only thing her emergency toolbox could muster - a Chandlerism - whilst flapping her arms maniacally as though she were hoping to take off in flight. What she really wanted was the ground to open up and swallow her. Why was he not saying anything? Why were her arms still flapping? He held her gaze in all seriousness and then, just as she was about to pass out from the embarrassment; his face eased up and he smiled. "Honestly, that has made my day," he said. "I'm sorry for putting you on the spot, I just couldn't help myself. Bloody hilarious. I don't care if you print a few pages of your personal sh*t - you do good work." He walked over toward her holding out the printed paper. She took it from him, still struggling to come down from the blood rush. "See you at the board?" he asked. "You betcha," she replied. He chuckled again and left the room. She was reeling. You betcha? You
betcha? WTF brain, she thought, you are really

Only 10 more daysssss — who else is freaking out? Just me? 😂 🥀 Deception and Chaos 🥀
Blurb: Sophia Cova lived a quiet, normal life, shadowed in sadness after the loss of her parents in a tragic airline accident. With her older brother being her only living relative and her anchor, Sophia is sure she’s destined for a brighter future. But that was until she was taken.
Stolen from her mundane, orderly life, she was drugged, and woke to every woman’s worst nightmare.
With only four grimy basement walls and a rancid mattress, she loses her sense of time, and preserves what’s left of her dignity by hurtling herself into the safety of her mind. The men, the beatings, they come and go with no reaction, until she hears one word that sends an arctic chill through her body. Sold.
On the eve of Sophia’s bidding, all hell breaks loose in the mansion of horrors. Gunfire and screams erupt all around her, as panic rises.
Snatched by one monster only to be taken by another, Sophia slowly starts to learn that not everything is as it seems. When secrets unravel, and the twisted game of cat and mouse ensues, The Puppeteer pulls his favorite strings and chaos brews. Lives are lost while the clock ticks, and only time will tell who will be killed next…

Y’all I’m so excited to reveal my cover!!!!! Thank you to everyone that has spread the word!!!!!❤️❤️❤️
Baseball Lover comes out Nov. 14. Thank you @bexlovesbooks for designing this beautiful cover.
Sometimes life rears its ugly head and messes up your world.
I know too well. It happened to me five years ago when I lost my fiancé.
It took me awhile to get back on my feet, but I finally got my life in order.
Don’t commit. Don’t get attached. Guard your heart.
Seemed plausible…until a tall, dark and gorgeous man commands my attention.
He is the worst kind of temptation.
Funny, charming, and did I mention hot?
Every woman’s fantasy.
A professional baseball player.
Suit up heart because I have no desire to become one of his stats.
Sometimes life drops a little miracle right in front of you.
In the form of a beautiful goddess.
Who’s also intelligent.
Oh, and doesn’t fall for my bullshit.
In fact, I don’t even think she likes me.
I’m an athlete, and I’m used to challenges.
You don’t make it as far as I have in my sport without having goals in mind.
I’ll pursue her like I’m pursuing the MVP award this season.
And, I will conquer.
Please TBR on Goodreads click link in my bio.

Phenomenal advice from author @colleenmwerner #Repost @colleenmwerner (@get_repost)
It’s amazing how much of a difference taking some time to slow down and BREATHE can make in regards to mental health and overall wellbeing.
I woke up this morning feeling emotionally exhausted and not really wanting to deal with the responsibilities of the day. Nevertheless, I pulled myself out of bed and got myself ready. While I was on the train, I decided to devote some time to meditating, to see if I could calm my mind. Shockingly, after just 5 minutes of a guided meditation, I felt completely rejuvenated. My mind was at ease, and I felt significantly calmer. While meditation definitely doesn’t fix all of my problems, it is one of my tools in my “mental health toolbox.”
Coming back to my breath and allowing myself to just be in the moment instead of ruminating and allowing my brain to take over is one of the most grounding things I can do. As hectic as life can get, one constant is that my breath is always there.

Yeah, you male entrepreneurs need to have your pics done too! The quality of what you put out there reflects the quality of what you are offering. It might be time to up your social media marketing game!
Changed up the scenery today, started a new manuscript at @kaysdailygrind. It’s the perfect place to write, fall decorations, chili for lunch. 🌶 Where do you get #inspired?
There’s nothing better on a chilly fall evening than a page-turner, a cozy blanket and maybe a glass of something to warm your bones. This collection is some of my very favorite, unputdownable books. What are your favorite fall reads?
