Guess Who's Doing NaNoWriMo?

Posted: 23 Oct 2008 10:57 AM CDT


  Yes, I'm crazy and not sane at all to involve myself in this. On top of that, I'm really going out on a limb and challenging myself by starting my first Christian Romance novel. Lawd da help I've already got a title: Eve's Deceptive. I'm already envisioning the cover which is a first since I usually don't do [...]

Reader's Question: Sweet Justice ending


Ok, I just finished reading Sweet Justice. You have got to be kidding me, G can't die like that. Is there more to this story?

If not, here are my thoughts: G doesn't die, but blacks out. And before she dies, someone comes into the laundry room attacks Nick and knocks him unconscious. Her savior then takes her to a secret place and nourishes her back to health. But when she awakes, she realize that it is Jerry. And because she fear that Jerry is going to start hurting her again, when she has the chance, she runs away. But she does not know that while locked up this time, Jerry has changed dramatically and realizes that he loves her and their daughter and wants to get out of the game and make everything right in his life. But now G is on the run with Nick and Jerry both looking for her...

Well you get my gist, but of course in the end Jerry has to kill Nick to protect his family and he has to prove to G that he really has changed.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I have read all of your books except for Sex Weed ( I just downloaded it to my smart phone today) and Stone's Revenge (I will read it next week, I try to limit myself to 1 book a week); and I still think you do an excellent job and I really enjoy reading your work. And the warnings you posted about reading your books on the smart phone are so true; the burning of dinner, the reading while driving, the lack of sleep - I have done it all. LOL.

Keep up the great work. In the meantime, I will try to wait patiently for your WIP's.

A true fan,
(Fort Worth, TX)



I liked the story line, but unfortunately, that's not how it's going to go.

Sweet Justice will be wrapped around another book (Kinda like Silent Lynx will be wrapped around King's Paradise story)

I'm honored that you love my work.

It's always funny when a reader enjoys my stories that much that they do the same thing I do when writing the story (I.E: burn food, lack of sleep, but I've written while driving.)

Make sure you tell the masses and thank you for supporting my literary endeavors.
