Still here …

Posted May 26, 2017 by Victoria in Always, Misty Grove / 0 Comments

I haven’t updated in a while. I’ve had two releases since Deadly Obsession.

 

A Love For Always is Nate and Sylvie’s book and is the last book in the Always series and could be read as a standalone.

 

 

Fighting Chance is the first book in my exciting new series set in a small town with not-so-small-town intrigue.

 

The next book, Saving Grace will be out by mid-June. Stay tuned!! 🙂

Cover Reveal and Teaser Cha..

Sorry for the silence in almost a month. Real life got in the way. Good new is; we’re at the home stretch before “Always Been Mine” goes into publication. I’m in the middle of final tweaking and proof reading and I’m targeting a date in December with a new release price of 99 cents for a week. This is in appreciation to everyone who’ve read my previous work and who are loyally anticipating each of my books. As with each book, writing this one has been a journey. I’ve always wanted my characters to be strong and badass, but I realized it was more rewarding to explore their vulnerabilities as well. Gabe and Beatrice’s path back to each other is not an easy one. There are too many internal and outside forces stacked against them, but there is no question in my mind that they are perfect for each other. I hope I am able to convey this sentiment at the end of the book. This book is a touch darker than my previous offerings, and I understand if it’s not for everyone. I have to remain true to my vision of my characters, and that means taking some risks […]

Berserker Serum Trivia

Where in the world do I come up with ideas? It all starts with the news. I remember around two years ago a woman shot an intruder five times and he still managed to run away. Georgia mom shoots intruder five times It turns out some stories like this are more common than you think because usually a perp is amped up on drugs and pumped so full of adrenalin, they’re unnaturally strong and don’t feel pain. Anyway, this reminded me of the movie WANTED with Angelina Jolie. This movie was about assassins who could perform superhuman tasks because they could produce excessive adrenalin when stressed. So I thought what if the adrenalin surge was drug induced instead of natural. Surely it’s not far-fetched with the CIA given its secretive programs. 😉 There’s also the case of military amphetamine. This drug is to battle fatigue, it is called the “go-pill” and is used to keep pilots alert and sharp-eyed.The side-effect is the inability to sleep so they’re issued a “no-go pill” afterward to help them sleep. Yes, it’s kind of whacked, which is why the practice is under fire because of an accident. But that’s a whole other story. Why […]

Some clarifications: “..

Just finished 5 chapters of rough draft of Always book#2. Gabe is a hot mess. 🙂 Now that “It’s Always Been You” has been out for a few weeks, I’ve been getting questions about Caitlin and her past. I’ll spoiler it below. If you have not read the book, you probably shouldn’t read past the spoiler lines. spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler It’s been brought up in passing in the book. Now that I’ve seen some questions, in hindsight, I probably should have written more to explain this part. In the rolling car meeting between Porter and Travis, Porter said specter agents are recruited at a young age from foster homes. This is so they have no link to a past, no identity at all. They’re “ghosts.” I guess with this in mind, I’ve projected on Caitlin into acceptance that she was raised in the CIA to have no identity, no past, no real friends or family except fellow specter agents who also, do not, technically exist. Her life with Travis was the only one that was real, yet was still a lie in itself. This was something Travis had to accept and is the main […]

Thank you, readers!

Thanks to everyone who has read my new book “It’s Always Been You.” Thank you for the awesome reviews! Many times I almost wanted to leave a comment on the review because I was so thrilled how the review captured exactly how I wanted the book to be perceived. But as a reader myself, I feel a review is really for another reader to make an informed decision whether to read a book or not. So I controlled my twitchy fingers and decided to thank everyone in this blog post. 🙂 I know the book didn’t work for some; I know my writing style is not for everyone. I’m so excited to start working on Gabe and Bee’s story. The plot is developing nicely and there’s nothing more exciting than to see connections snap into place. I’m finding that Travis and Caitlin’s characters were easier to write than our next couple. I’m not sure if you all noticed in book #1, but Bee doesn’t fit the “self-sacrificing, goody-two-shoes” mold. I discussed this with my friend about how Bee’s character may not be entirely likable. She flat out told me: “You don’t have to make her likable.” Which means I’m going […]

Finding inspiration in the ..

    Before I wrote the first book in the Always series, I read a couple of non-fiction Navy SEAL accounts to gain an insight into the psyche of the planet’s greatest warriors. When we watch them in movies or television you’d think that was all Hollywood exaggeration depicting how strong and  unbreakable these soldiers are. Little did I know that when it comes to the SEALs, they are nothing short but real-life superheroes. I read Lone Survivor and watched the movie as well. It was hard. The four SEALs were outgunned and outnumbered against dozens of Taliban fighters. Riddled with bullets, and suffering from numerous fractures, their mental toughness and never-say-die spirit still took down a chunk of the enemy forces. However it was the book FEARLESS that left an indelible mark on me. It was about the life of DEVGRU (SEAL Team 6) operator Adam Brown. He passed the SEAL Team 6 selection process one-handed and with one eye (separate incidents injured his eye and gun hand—he had to relearn to shoot with his left hand). His struggle climbing out from hitting rock bottom because of drug abuse into becoming one of the most legendary operators of DEVGRU […]
