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

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.

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

It’s been a while

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry it’s been a while, real life came in and decided to take over as it does sometimes.  But, I’m still here.  Since I’ve been gone, I’ve had the chance to see my cover and it’s AMAZING! I love it and can’t wait to share it on the 28th!  I’ve also been to my sisters graduation and my first Harry Styles concert as well, haha. It’s been an interesting few weeks.

Now I’m in the home stretch of putting this book together and I’m trying to spend every minute I can into it, making it perfect.  I haven’t put out a book in such a long time, my nerves are getting the best of me.  But, I’ll be ready!

This week, is edits/re-writes and teaser pull-outs.  I’m so excited!  It’s going to be a good week 🙂

Alright I’m off to get work done, so I can get writing done.  Have a wonderful day!

Love, Ivy.
