Book Updates

Hey everyone 🙂

I know it’s been a while, so I wanted to update you on what I’ve been working on since Silenced released.  I hope you’ll all be happy to know that I have three releases planned this year.  I just purchased my first cover for the first book and I’m looking for the the other covers that will hopefully fall into place.

So, the first book is called A Man Betrayed (A Quinn Winters Novel) Book 3 in the series.  This will also be a standalone, just like the other two.  In Silenced you got a little taste of Carter, well this book is all his.  You’re going to learn his story, why he’s so special and what made him the way he is today.  It’s going to be intense and nonstop.  You can add it to your to-be-read today, just click here and it will take you to Goodreads.

The second book is called From Love to Ashes.  It’s just a random standalone book, that I’ve been handwriting.  I have had my eye on this particular cover for quite some time and as I’ve been writing this particular story, I realized it was perfect for it.  It actually had a different title at first, but this title is just perfect.  I cannot wait to share this cover and story.  This is the story of Cassie and Colt.  She’s been through some crazy crap and when she’s finally feeling brave and hopeful she meets Colt.  He’s too good to be true, she can see it from the start, but there’s no way the universe would let her get fucked over twice, right?  You’ll just have to wait and see.  You can add it to your to-be-read on Goodreads, here.

The third book is called Addict.  I love this book and I’m not sure why it touches something inside of me.  It touches on addiction and two best friends and how their life paths have changed.  They are still friends, but can their friendship survive lies, glam and addiction?  I cannot wait to share this one as well.  It is also a standalone read.  You can add it to your to-be-read on Goodreads, here.

That’s what I have coming up this year.  I’m hoping to have them all out by December.  I have my timeline in my head, but I’m not going to put out dates, until I’m certain of what they will be.  I hate disappointing people, so am going to keep them close to the chest for now.  But, keep checking back and be sure to check the “Coming Soon” tab for all the books.  For any of my new releases, be sure to check the “Book Info” tab.

That’s it for now.  Remember to smile and share the love.  I’ll be back soon with more.  April is going to be a fun month just to chat TV and movies, so be sure to come back and say hi.

Love, Ivy

All the words

Hi everyone 🙂

So, Silenced has been out a few weeks now and I’m working on marketing and pushing the whole Quinn Winters series, along with Cutting Through the Darkness since it’s in Kindle Unlimited.

Life continues to move on as it always does.  It has its ups and down, but with each passing day we grow stronger, smarter and ready to take on the next.  Now, I’m working on my next two books and I finally feel ready to consistently write.  For me, there is always a period after a release of mixed emotions.  Sometimes it’s hard to get back into writing, but then I push myself to start writing and I remember why I love it.

I love losing myself in the words and the worlds that I’ve created in my mind.  Every day a new story comes into my head and I walk it through from beginning to end.  Sometimes, I’ll end up scribbling some ideas down, others I’ll finish out in my mind and let float away.  But, each day I have a new world to lose myself in and I want to share that with people.

Like I’ve said before, I write because I have to and because I love it.  Writing has always been a happy place for me and I won’t let anyone take that away from me.

I hope you all have your own happy places you go, places that let you escape from reality for just a bit and feel free.

Until later <3

Love, Ivy

Excerpt – Copyright Ivy Love 2018

Quinn:
Knowing I was trying to protect my team is the only thing that’s getting me through all this. I love my job and I love my team. There’s no doubt in my mind about that day for me. I know I was doing the right thing.

This morning I had to retake my gun and fitness tests to prove I’m fit enough to return to work in the field. I’ve been working in the office, but I’m ready to go back out into the field and be with everyone again. I’m still sore and I know I didn’t run my best, but I know I’m fit enough for duty. I’m just waiting for a call from the Director.

For now, I’m sitting at my desk reviewing reports of smaller cases that local law enforcement has requested our assistance with. My team has poured over reports, crime scene photos, witness statements and been all over the country while I’ve been away to prepare these reports for the requesting officers. So far, nothing is sticking out to me that would require further assistance from our office. On the plus side, after reviewing our reports nobody from law enforcement in these cases have requested additional assistance at this time either.

For the moment all is quiet and normal on the work front. I suppose that’s a good thing. I stand stretching my neck and look at my watch. It’s getting late and still no word from the Director yet. I don’t want to be that Agent, but soon I’m going to be knocking down his door to get my results.

I miss my team. I miss my friends. I miss the way things were. I can only hope my past decisions haven’t broken things past repair.

I feel my phone vibrating in my pocket and fumble to get it out. 
I stare at the number and answer it.

“Hello, Director.”

Reflections

This past weekend was my first book signing that I attended.  I’ll be honest, on the drive up I had plenty of time to freak myself out and I did.   But, I managed to keep kind of calm at least outwardly.  I realized while driving, I had forgotten all my toiletries, so had to make a stop to get those, but overall didn’t forget anything else, so was pretty proud of myself, haha.  I have a checklist for packing usually, but I was so worried about forgetting book stuff, I forgot about the stuff I needed for me, LoL.   When I got there, I went and found something to eat and just hung out for a bit.  People were still trickling in, so it was a good opportunity to chat with people online and just rest up.

The next morning, was full speed ahead.  I got my 80’s outfit for the party and just started chatting people up.  From there the weekend is honestly a whirlwind of fun and good times.  I met so many amazing authors and readers.  Internally, I was so worried about not fitting in or not being good enough, but everyone I talked to was so nice and I made so many new friends.

Three days later and I’m still on a book high, I’m excited about writing again and I cannot wait to share Silenced the next Quinn Winters book with all of you.

Evening Thoughts

Hello again,

I’ve been busy preparing for Rebels & Readers prepping swag, making lists, writing a fifth book furiously and still working. I’ve also been buying goodies for the raffle basket I’ll have at my table.  For every every book purchased, I’ll have a special gift included in their bag.

I’ve been working so hard to hopefully have everything go smoothly and while I know, things won’t go perfect, I’m hoping to have things organized well before it’s time to go.  If I’m organized at least there’s a hope things will go smoothly, haha.

I’ll be posting pictures of swag as I get it…but for now, time to write!

Love, Ivy

It’s been a while…

Hello again,

It’s been a while since I’ve chatted with you.  Don’t you hate when life and work get in the way of what you really want to be doing?  Let me update you on things.  You know I’ve put out another book, A Killer Past (A Quinn Winters Novel), well, I’m also over six chapters into the next Quinn Winters book.

I’ve also been busy getting ready for Rebels & Readers that is coming up in November.  I’ve started purchasing swag, my banner is being made, I’ve got some stuff for my table coming in and after the Amazon buying Createspace bs… I’m working on purchasing more books.  I’m very, very excited about this signing, as it’s my first signing!  I’m looking forward to meeting new authors and readers and experiencing another part of this life.

One thing I’ve been struggling with is time management.  I am working full-time and then some, trying to spend time with the man and my pups and still trying to write when I should be sleeping, haha.  Once I can get my schedule down, I know I can make this work, it’s just a matter of work actually being normal, the words coming regularly and things going as planned.  Sounds simple enough, right? Haha.

I think that’s everything for now.  I’ll keep you posted as things get closer to the event!

Love, Ivy

Two Days Until Release Day

There are only two days left until this book releases.  I am SO excited, but I’m also kind of terrified.  Like, to the point I didn’t give this book to anyone.  I am ready for the fallout of it, but I think the fear is two-fold.  The first part is not having released something in so long and the other part is that it’s something very different than what I usually write.  Yes, it has romance in it and yes it is a standalone, but it’s on a completely separate path then what people are used to with me.  I like that I can surprise people with what I write.  I like that I write what is in my head and what I want to write, but it is also terrifying.

I’m proud of what I’ve written, but there is always the worry and anxiety when I release a book, because every time I put something out, I’m putting a little piece of myself out into the world.

I’m not sure if that makes sense, if any of this makes sense, ha.  As release day gets close, I tend to babble.  I get anxious and just ramble about everything in my head.  At any rate, I’m VERY excited for everyone to read this book.  As the days tick off, I’ll be waiting anxiously and probably making more swag, hehe.

I’m also having a release day party on Facebook, you can find the link to the event, here. Come play, it will be fun.  Now, I’m going to go worry/think/be excited in my head, ha!  Have a wonderful rest of your day <3

Love, Ivy
