Not Enough Hours in the Day!

I know it has been a minute since I posted on my blog. I have been busy working and .... life. But I shouldn't let that get in my way of writing and sharing. I love to share my experiences and hear about your as well. Speaking of sharing, I have been researching and reviewing a lot of webisodes on the Internet lately and have come across some really great ones that I feel are worth mentioning.

Ok, so one that I have found is called Celeste Bright, which is written by Sonya Steele. It's an awesome drama/suspense. I cannot wait for the next episodes to come out.. Check it out.

There are 10 episodes and she actually has each episode deconstructed on her site. You can read and see the episodes on her page here. I absolutely love this!

Another one for you 24 or Keifer Sutherland fans! I ran across one by him called The Confession. In one word, AWESOME! For some reason, the first chapter is not on youtube, but you can view all of them on FB here. I was able to get the trailer however.

If you are looking for some comedy.. I found it... Hilarious!! It's by Issa Rae...called The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl. According to the site, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl follows the title character and friends as she navigates through life, love and awkward situations. This one here is episode 5 but i believe there is 6 now... funny stuff (depending on your sense of humor)

New Project!

Intimate Betrayals Web Series Now that my interesting blog tour has ended, I have had time to dedicate towards the next book in my Intimate Betrayals series! The Ladies Club is currently in process with the hopes of finishing it really really soon; then off for the editing process!

Also, I wanted to tell you some other great news! If you remember, I was asking your input on the interest in a web series...well, that is a project that I have been working on too! I am currently in the works of bringing Intimate Betrayals web series to life! I am very excited! Right now I am trying to raise funds to help me cover the costs of production, equipment (both sound and cameras), lighting, etc.... I just recently launched a project on kickstarter.com If you are interested in helping me out, I'd appreciate it! Of course, there are things in it for you as well!

Picture of Beauty and Full of Heart

I know this has nothing to do with reading, art, writing, or expression...but I just wanted to talk about my love of horses...I practically grew up around horses and developed a love for them. At one point I wanted to buy one...not to race, but to just have. I think they are beautiful animals that are full of rich personalities and strong hearts! Though I knew I couldn't afford to keep one; they take a lot of time, money and energy to keep them healthy and right...they can really eat, but they have to to sustain their weight and energy, I still contemplated getting one.

I just finished watching Secretariat. It was an awesome movie! 

You know that great race horse and thoroughbred legend,  whose record breaking time of 2:24 (1 mile and 1/2 in distance, I believe it was )...in the Belmont Stakes Race in 1973 hasn't been touched...and probably wont be anytime soon. The Belmont was the third leg of the Triple Crown Series of races...won by 31 lengths! If you don't know times or lengths....let's just say the horse blazed the track and all behind were wayyyy behind!  This horse was AMAZING! I found myself really into this movie and wanting to see more of the horse than the actors LOL!!! His speed and heart was untouchable.

Another all time great is the New Zealand born Phar Lap! He was just as amazing as well. He dominated the Australian racing circuit.   During the 20's Great Depression times, this horse uplifted many peoples hearts! He died in 1932, as the third highest stake winner in the world!

Both of these horses were great animals. But most of all what I loved about them and all animals is that they have HEART! They are strong and persevere against odds that seem impossible. There is nothing impossible and there is nothing that you cannot accomplish....just takes time, effort and energy on your part. That is what I have always known and was told growing up...and still believe. This is how I feel about my books and my writing. I know that it is hard work behind the scenes and will do what it takes to succeed. I'm putting my whole heart into this and know that one day (hopefully soon) that it will pay off. God put these amazing creatures here to show us how this is done. They do what they were put here to do... run! I am here here to write...as authors and human beings, we have to know, feel, and believe undoubtedly in what we do...Just look and think about the greats...all we have to do is take and follow their queue.

The End of the Road

So, tomorrow (7/3/11) ... it's boiled down to the last day of the Intimate Betrayals Book Blog Tour and I have to say that it has been an experience. Please be sure to stop by my last stop @ Book Lovers Hideaway.

I want to thank the hosts that extended their help and knowledge (as they know it was my first time organizing such a tour)...thanks so much for your help! I had the chance to meet people that I otherwise maybe would not have met through this tour and that was great. I love d the opportunity that was given to me to not only introduce myself, but my colorful characters as well. Hopefully you followed the tour and got a chance to learn more about them through the character interviews.

Hopefully, if another tour is done with my next book, it will be as successful or even more successful that this one.

Ebook Winner!

Congrats to Daniela! Thanks for participating! I hope that you enjoy! Your info to claim the books has been sent!
