#TeaserTuesday – Dream Chasers

After hugging me and DJ, Sunny sat down and crossed her legs. She gave me an amused smile.
“Dreamz, what have you done?”
“Man, it’s not what you think,” I answered, assuming that she had watched the finale inside of Aubrey’s dressing room.
“I was checking out your girl too. She’s wearing that hell out of that Cavalli dress. I know that dress well, and no reality star can afford that. Did you buy that for her?”
I shrugged. “Maybe. If I did, she doesn’t need to know.”
“That girl has you all twisted up.” Sunny giggled. “You spent forty stacks on a dress? I’ve never seen you like this.”
“What do you want, Sunny? I know you didn’t come in here just to tease me.”
She grinned widely. “Actually, that’s the only reason I’m still hanging around. And maybe to give you some much needed advice.”
DJ burst out laughing. “How can you give him relationship advice? You act like we don’t know your track record. We grew up with you, Sunny. We know we can’t trust your relationship advice.”
Sunny smiled because she knew he was right. We all went to junior high and high school together. We weren’t the best of friends, but that doesn’t change the fact that every aspect of her current and past relationships was tabloid fodder.
“You tried it, DJ! You were at my wedding! Obviously, I’m doing something right because I’m not divorced. I’m not giving your cousin relationship advice because he doesn’t have a relationship to advise on. I’m giving him female advice. And I’m not talking to you; I’m talking to your cousin.” She turned towards me. “Dreamz, I think you’re about to do something really dumb, and you better tread carefully. You hurt that girl to her core on national TV. Millions of people saw her embarrassed by you. Her forgiveness isn’t going to come easily so don’t expect it just because you still like her. Your feelings don’t even matter. From what I’ve seen on the show, she’s more likely to say fuck you and your feelings than forgive you so you better be prepared for it, friend. She’s a tough cookie. I like her though. And next time you want to dress up one of your girls, call me. That is what I do for a living.”
Sunny’s harsh words hit me hard. Seeing Chase at her school and our brief conversation solidified my feelings for her, but we hadn’t had a conversation about what happened. Sunny could be right, and I was overestimating Chase’s feelings for me. Damn. I didn’t know what I’d do if Chase rejected me in front of a live audience.


Chasin’ Dreamz Playlist

Every book I write has a playlist that I listen to almost exclusively while I’m writing. I spend almost as much time building this playlist as I do plotting the book and writing the character sketches. It’s that important because without the music to inspire me, nothing would ever get written. This is one of my favorite playlists so far…#2 behind the Untitled playlist…so I thought I’d share.

I’ve been Hoovered!!!

I’ve been Hoovered.

I didn’t see it coming at all.

Before I continue, let me issues this disclaimer…

Aside from Harry Potter and the Twilight books, I’m really not the type of adult that reads young adult or new adult books. I lurk around the genre and know the major players but I’m not searching for YA/NA when I’m buying books.

This is why I’m not exactly sure how I got Hoovered.

Colleen Hoover is a name that kept popping up in nearly every single on of my book recommendation emails. I saw some of her covers and thought they were gorgeous covers but not my cup of tea. One day, I’m trying to make room on my Kindle and I saw that I actually had Hopeless in my library. I don’t even know when I bought it.

A Hustler’s Promise – The Complete Series

I knew when I typed The End on A Hustler’s Promise 3 that I would eventually package this series as a complete set. At first I was worried because, despite being my biggest selling series, most of my readers already own all three books and I didn’t want them to feel compelled to purchase the boxed set just to read the bonus novella, The Takeover.

Therefore, I decided to release The Takeover independently of the set and also include it in the set. I’m still not sure if it was the greatest decision from a financial standpoint, but I often act from my “reader’s brain” when it comes to releasing my work. Not only do I release the books that I’d want to read, I release them in a way that is beneficial for readers. I’ve been burned many times by authors who include the last book in a series in a set so it forces readers to buy all the books that they already have just to get to the ending. That’s not a fair business practice.

Also, as a reader, if I’ve heard good things about a series and I know that the series is done, I’ll buy all the books at the same time. It’s like binge-watching Criminal Minds on Netflix, which I definitely did. So, here it is, A Hustler’s Promise 1-3 plus the bonus novella The Takeover.

Even if you’ve already read it, please spread the word.



Rayshawn and Jaicyn never make a promise that they can’t keep.
High school sweethearts turned adult partners-in-crime, their need to survive for each other as well as with each other is the fuel keeps them hustling. The pair learns the hard way that money and power will always breed jealousy and envy.
As they battle threats on their lives, they know the dangerous game they’re playing is bound to catch up with them. The price they have to pay for the decisions they made is steep.
Loyalty is tested, friendships lost, and the strength of Jaicyn and Rayshawn’s relationship is questioned. When the smoke clears, who will be left standing?
