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.”

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

Short, sweet and to the point

Hello again,

Right now, I’m in work, see family, write mode.  I’m trying to get as much writing done as humanely possible as quickly possible with as little sleep as possible, ha! So far, it seems to be working.  I’m seeing progress and I’m in love with this book and I’m proud of this book. Really proud of this book.

So, all I can do is keep writing, keep working and keep moving forward.

I know this is short, but I’ve been so busy writing, I’ve been trying not to think of all the crazy crap going on around me.  I’ll end with this. Life is too short, so smile, love one another and enjoy life.

Love, Ivy

Thoughts on writing

Hello again!

I have been stupid busy at work the past week, which means I don’t have as much time as I want to write.  I know I need to work right now, it’s how I make a living.  My writing doesn’t bring in enough right now and I’m okay with that, I really am.  I write, because I love writing.  I write because I have a million stories in my head that I want to get out.  I have a great group of people that enjoy my books and one day if it grows, I’ll be okay with that too.

But, what I’m not okay with is how I am always comparing myself to everyone else.  I watch as other authors are putting out book after book after book and I just can’t and haven’t.  It’s frustrating that I  have these stories that are just sitting on my desktop in progress and it’s taking forever to finish them.  It’s frustrating that I’m so close to finishing A Killer Past and I just can’t get there.  I have moments where I think I should just end the story, but I know if I do I’ll disappoint myself and my readers.  It’s a constant battle with myself to remember that I am me.  I can only go as fast as my life allows.  I don’t want to disappoint people, but I also don’t want to disappoint myself by putting out something that I am not proud of.

Those are my thoughts for today, happy Sunday <3

Love, Ivy

 

Another Late Night Post

Hello again,

I’m getting ready to log off for the night, but I wanted to check in here first. I got in a lot of writing this weekend and I’m SOOO close to finishing A Killer Past.  If you want to add it to your TBR list, you can find it here on Goodreads.  This book has a bit of what I’m used to writing, but it will also be something totally different too.  I can’t wait for everyone to read it.

Here’s the blurb for all of you who aren’t able to link up right away:

Copyright Ivy Love, 2018

Agent Quinn Winters has worked hard to get where she is today. She is an elite FBI profiler, as well as a submissive. She tries to balance the two, but through the years, she’s always put her career first. Except, when it comes to her best friend Agent Willow Mavros. They have been best friends since college and know each other better than anyone else.

A new case has come across Agent Winters and her team’s desk. A case that threatens to break them all. As she and her team get deeper into the case, every decision she makes will not only affect her career but her submissive lifestyle as well.

If she can’t figure out who the killer is in time, she could lose one of her teammates forever.

I can’t wait to show everyone this book and the books after. I’ve been working hard and I have a lot of good stuff to share with everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend and don’t be afraid of Monday, we are going to kick this week’s butt!

Love, Ivy

Another Day

Hello again,

Have you ever just had a random itch to do something?  Something totally random, like get a tattoo, go on a trip or get something pierced?  I’m in that mood right now, except, I just want to pierce something.  Nothing too crazy, just a few more holes in my ear.  I’m sure it will pass, I get a feeling/itch to do something “crazy” every now and then, but the feeling hit me so hard and out of the blue, it’s kind of a where did you come from feeling.  Does anybody else experience that and if you do, do you follow it?

I’m actually debating doing it.  If the feeling doesn’t go away in the next couple weeks, I think I might.  We’ll see what happens, I’m hoping it just goes away like it usually does.  I’m not really an impulsive person, haha.  I am a planner all the way.

Tell me about your impulsive trips or decisions, I’d love to hear them!  Maybe it will encourage me to live a little bit more on the edge.

Love, Ivy

New Outlook

Hello again,

I try to keep things from getting too personal, because I want to keep my writing life and personal life separate, but in this instance they are overlapping.  This morning I lost someone in my family and it made me think, which is always a dangerous thing.

Why?  We have so little time on this Earth, why do we spend time doing things that only make us a little happy?  Why? Because, we have to in order to survive, i.e. money, food, etc.  I get that I do, but it sucks sometimes. I would love to write all day and just lose myself in words, but I know right now in life that’s not feasible.  For now, I have to steal moments in time to write and create and I can live with that, but it’s days like today, I remember every day that passes is another opportunity gone.

I could write a lot more, about how time is precious and to not waste it, but I’m in my head a little too much right now.  I think if you’ve ever lost someone in your life you understand time is important.  Whether it’s taking time to be with those you love or taking time to do something you love.  Taking time, to take a risk and a chance and just go for it.

So, I’m just doing it, I’m holding onto these feelings… and I’m pushing forward.  With that being said, I’m not waiting anymore, here is the link to my next book on Goodreads, please feel free to add it to your to-be-read shelves.  A cover reveal is coming soon.

I’ll end with this… I always say, that we never know how many days we’re given, so be kind, love one another and be happy.  <3

Love, Ivy
