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

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

Excerpt  – Copyright Ivy Love 2018

Killer:

An unconscious girl sits tied to a lone chair in the middle of an empty room, her dark hair matted to her face as she awaits a fate not even she realizes she has been chosen for.

I watch from the corner, waiting for her to regain consciousness. I’ve done this enough now to know just the right amount of drug to use so I don’t get bored waiting for my new friend to wake up. I’m not sure which is more of a thrill at this point. The actual kill or the calling card I leave for my new friend, Agent Winters. I enjoy watching these idiots run around trying to connect the dots and failing. Then they had to call her. Now, I get to watch her struggle to connect the dots. I don’t take pleasure in seeing her struggle, but it’s an important piece of the puzzle. She isn’t dumb, she just can’t see the big picture, yet. But she will… and when she does. It will be something she’ll never forget. I can’t wait.

My new friend is stirring now. The fun is about to begin. I love watching them wake up, looking around, trying to figure out where they are. The confusion evident on their faces. Watching them as their confusion turns to terror when they realize they’re bound and unable to move. It brings me an indescribable thrill. I watch as her eyes dart around the room widening as she realizes her situation. I always wonder what is going through their minds in this moment. I’ve asked, but they never answer me. They just beg and plead for their worthless lives.

I can feel the excitement beginning to bubble inside me. It’s almost time to reveal myself. Not yet though, she’s not ready. She’s not afraid enough. There’s a moment when I can feel their fear in the room. When that moment happens, that’s when I show myself. It’s when I feel ready, because their fear is inside me, it’s as if I can feel it running through my veins.

I can hear her breaths quickening, her muffled cries getting louder and the chair scraping against the concrete floor.

It’s time.

I’m so excited!

Hello everyone!

Today I spent the day working.  Now, tonight I get to put together a timeline for the release of A Killer Past. I’m so excited to release this book and can’t wait to share it with all of you.  I’ll be putting details out on Goodreads and will be doing a cover reveal as well!

Soon, I’ll be posting the date of the release too.  I am so excited about this book. I have been excited about all my books, but this one has a different kind of excitement.  A kind of a nervous/anxious/worried excitement.  I’ve been researching and trying to get this book just right and I’m hoping I’ve succeeded.

Anyways, I’m just popping in to tell you to keep watching this because the news is coming!

Love, Ivy

Lists Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em

Hello again!

I’m all about lists.  I have lists for everything, for work, writing and everyday tasks and then I have lists for lists. Then I have lists within my lists.  Yes, I know it’s ridiculous, but it does actually help me.  I stay organized and I stay on track with things I need to do.

So, my question is do you make lists and do you use them?  Are they helpful for you?

I mean, there are nights when I can’t go to bed until I actually put things down on paper.  I have to get my lists out of my head and onto paper that way I stop thinking about it and can shut my mind down, haha.  For me, lists are not only useful they are therapeutic.

I’m just curious if there are others out there who feel the same way I do.  Let me know what you think.  I’m off to make swag, write and get some work done.  Have a wonderful day <3

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.

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

Day Two – Late Night Thoughts

Hello again,

I’m back.  Two days in a row. I said I wanted to reach out to you more and I do. Plus, I used to blog all the time and I do miss it.  I enjoy writing in general.  Sometimes it’s a way for me to just lose myself from a day.  Other times it’s a way to release the crazy thoughts from my head and other days it’s just because.  I’ve always loved writing even before I pushed publish on my first book. My journals and diaries were my best friends.  I don’t know about you, but my childhood diaries were where I could be honest about how I felt about everything.  It was the one place I knew I could never be judged, because I was the only person who would ever read it.

I realize it isn’t the same now. Every time I realize a book, I’ll be judged on the contents, but as long as I’m happy with what I’m sharing then that is all that matters in the end.

That’s all for now.  Time for research, writing and then sleep.  Until later.

Love, Ivy
