Novel Release: Free Review Copy Available

Hey guys,

I just wanted to share with you all the fact that I have finally realized one of my lifelong dreams of having my book published called When Love Hurts. This book is the first in a four-part drama series.

It’s the first novel I ever published and it took a lot of work.


The structural edit was done by BubbleCow and I was thankful for their work and comments. I also had the proofreading for the book done by Suzanne from and I thought she did a fantastic job finding all the grammar errors and typos in my book.

Book description

Ever since her grandmother died on the day of her high school graduation, Jessica never had a family. Now she’s grown up and has fallen in love with a man named Chris that she thought was her soul mate. But she was wrong.

When she discovers evidence of Chris’ infidelity she confronts him. One thing leads to another and she leaves his place battered and bruised. She goes into the home of her childhood friend Jaylen who isn’t much of a child anymore with a growing business and bills of his own. She takes this time to confront her  life, her situation and her overwhelming need for love. But will the need for love be too strong for her to resist when Chris shows up looking for her?

It is on sale at Amazon for $2.99 BUT if you would like a FREE review copy of my book just send me an email at saying that you want the book. I wanted to offer readers of this blog a review copy first.

Warning: This book contains adult situations and is intended for a mature audience.

Would love to know what you think 🙂

      Thanks so much Lashanda! I really appreciate your thoughts. I’m aiming to have it release late October perhaps the last week. Not an exact date but that’s the best estimate i can give you right now. Thanks so much. 🙂

    Congratulations! I am going to buy a copy (thanks for the free offer, but I think you’ve earned to have me buy it after all your hard work). I’m traveling through the weekend, but can’t wait to write you a review.
