Another Year Behind Us. Hello, 2019.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m so glad to have made it through another year, and I’m glad you guys made it with me. May not be a big deal for some, but for me, that’s enough reason to celebrate. Cheers!

At the beginning of 2018, I made a resolution. Though I tried, I wasn’t able to reach my goal. Part of the reason was due to something that happened in my personal life, and the other part was due to my lack of drive to make it happen. Earlier last year, my hubby fell ill, right after my boys got over a bad flu. It caused a big scare. As a result, I directed all of my attention to my better half’s health, totally disregarding my chatty characters and even my own health. I was so concerned about him, I didn’t even realize I was sick myself. It was a respiratory infection, which truly sucks for someone with bronchitis asthma. *sigh* Thankfully, I caught it before it got really bad.

Nevertheless, throughout it all, my writing suffered. Life happens so it couldn’t be helped. That just means I have to push harder to get ahead just in case life throws another monkey wrench my way.

That said, I’m going to do things differently this year. Instead of announcing my new year’s resolution, I’m going to keep to myself and make it happen. I won’t TALK about it, I’ll BE about it. That’s my motto this year and I plan to stick with it.

I have high hopes that you’ll be able to stick with your plans to reach your goals as well. Let’s do it together!

Stay Ready

Staying low to the ground, Alexis crept into the hangar. She slipped into the nearest shadow and crouched against the wall.

The retractable ceiling was left open. Strange. There were no missions on record for the day. At least that’s what was reported on the log. So, why was the ceiling open? Several drones zipped by. They circled the field, lingering around the aircraft building.

Damn, this is gonna be harder than I expected.

She never backed down from a challenge before. So why start now? She flash-stepped across the massive space, going from one hovercraft to another, using them as cover. Hopefully, she moved fast enough to evade the drones’ radar. All she had to do was make it to the rear door. That would bring her closer to the canal, and closer the secrets within.

Almost there. I can do this. She took a deep breath and made a dash for the door.

Suddenly, the sharp shrill of a sword being drawn reached her senses. Alexis scanned her surroundings. The hangar seemed vacant, but that apparently wasn’t the case. She slowed her pace, but she kept moving. A threatening breeze rushed into her from the right. With it, a blade whistled through the air.

Reaching for her own sword, she ducked and swept her right leg out. Her foot caught the ankle of her unseen opponent.

A shadowy apparition emerged and flipped back away from her.

Alexis drew a trio of shuriken and launched them at the shadow. A series of silver streaks deflected the tiny blades.

Sword in hand, Alexis squared off. “If you wanted a battle, all you had to do was ask… Helena.”

Her adversary shed her ghostly form and stepped forth, wielding twin katanas. “You knew I would attack you?”

“The way you swoon over Tristan…” Alexis pushed her leather jacket from over her shoulders and let it fall to the ground. “Yeah, I knew it was only a matter of time before you made a go for me.”

Her preternatural eyes narrowed as her lips kicked up in a snarling sneer. “You don’t deserve him and I’m going to prove it.” Crossing her blades, she crouched in a battle stance. “I hope you’re ready, Moonlight. ‘Cause I’m not going to hold back.”

Smiling, Alexis held her weapon in a double grip. “Bitch, I stay ready.”

Alexis Moonlight Book 1

Available at the Ice Dragon Press Online Bookstore

Mankind had once again thrust itself into a war built on hate, bigotry, and power. History repeated itself tenfold. Only this time, it was worse. Racism and prejudice escalated to an all-time high. More than half of the world’s population were what society labeled as Exoticals, which was just another way of saying bi-racial. Despite that, humans still found reasons to hate each other. If that wasn’t bad enough, they damn near destroyed the ozone layer, so much that there were certain sectors—dead zones—where the air was unbreathable. Creators of their own demise.

“We are Scorpion Tail, and we’re here to rock you ‘til death!”

ScorpionTailAds2.1

 Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll… and MURDER!

Four unlikely individuals come together and form the indie band, “Scorpion Tail”. Their wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics thrust them into stardom in a small town in Georgia.

When a heinous murder is committed during one of their concerts, it puts the band under an unwanted spotlight. Because of their troubled pasts, they dread what the bad publicity will bring, but it doesn’t stop them from rocking on.

They gain the attention of Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious detective from Japan, who is determined to link them to the crime.

Scorpion Tail’s lead singer, MonaLisa, has plans to throw him off his A-game to protect the band. In a turn of events, she finds herself attracted to him. But, if she gives in, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keep.

While Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only who has his eyes set on her.

Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the death list?

Friday Giggles…

I know my neighbor is not a morning person, but I strive to make her smile anyway. She’s a divorcee and most of the time she’s pretty grumpy, but that doesn’t hinder my cause. I was watering my flowers this morning and she came out of the house on her way to work.

Me: “Good morning, neighbor!” *smiles and waves*

Neighbor: *Glares at me and groans*

Me: “You look nice today.”

Neighbor: *arches upper lip and groans again as she heads for her car*

Me: “I’ll miss you while you’re gone.”

Neighbor: *pauses briefly, shakes her head and climbs into her car*

Me: “I love you!” (And to clarify, I didn’t just say ‘I love you’, I gave her the longing expression with it, like I can’t live another moment without her. The expression is what sells it.)

Neighbor: *stares at me awkwardly and then erupts in laughter* “You are crazy, girl.”

Me: *waves again* “Have a nice day!”

Yeah, I may be a little crazy but I got her to smile. 🙂 Everyone deserves a smile.

Happy Friday, friends! Have a fabulous weekend.
