The Paragon is finally here!

Yes! The final book in The Nome Chronicles series launched today and I’m practically giddy. I’ve got a chilled bottle of Moscato waiting and I’m going to celebrate with that and a book. Oh, and chocolate cake. It’s become somewhat of a tradition to have chocolate cake and an alcoholic beverage with the launch of each book. =DFF John The Paragon ebook

Snatch your copy now, while the price is a low $0.99c. The price is that low to celebrate the launch and will go up to $4.99. The Paragon is currently available at Amazon and Google Play but will go live at Barnes & Noble (Nook), Kobo and Apple in a few hours.

When love turns to hate, is there a way back?

Since her father’s death and the subsequent betrayal, Neith trusts no one. She has learned to be ruthless and will do whatever it takes to defeat anyone in her way. Having once loved Invier only adds to her determination to crush him.

Invier can’t believe the girl he sacrificed so much for wants him dead, and he’s desperate to convince Neith he’s not her enemy. But her threat is not his only concern, nor is she the only one he needs to save. In the end, finding a solution might require him to resort to the very tool he hates—violence—and, he may need to kill the one he loves.

Invier and Neith’s struggles will bring them head to head in a final and deadly showdown as The Nome Chronicles come to a thrilling conclusion in THE PARAGON.

Blurb Work: The Pursual

Image result for blurbs.jpg

Writing the blurb for The Pursual has been the hardest thing ever. As in…the extra hardest.

I honestly didn’t think it would prove as difficult, even though I’ve read that it’s hard work.

(Yeah, I can be as delusional as the next person *Kanye shrug*) Continue reading “Blurb Work: The Pursual”

Introducing … Invier

I’ve introduced Neith as well as Landen Sohr – two characters in Book 1 of the Nome Chronicles Trilogy, The Pursual.

As I get closer to finishing the publication process, I realize I haven’t shared much about a major character called Invier.

Invier is Neith’s boyfriend. (In my head, I said boo, but I’m glad I typed boyfriend, lol). He’s a stubborn fella, but he loves his girl completely.

It was a little difficult figuring out what he looked like in my head. I knew components of his features but then one day, I decided to actually figure out exactly what he looked like

A round of editing done!

The Pursual, Book 1 in my series, The Nome Chronicles Trilogy, has been done for a while but due to a few issues, I only got to do a thorough review over the last 3 weeks.  I feel so good knowing I got through this last round of editing. I even had a glass of wine.  I’ve battled the flu and other issues in that time but feel so grateful.

But, all that work is just a drop in the ocean of what is to come. I want the story to have a professional developmental edit and proofreading. A professional cover needs to be created, the story will need to be formatted for print and ebook format. Even after all that, the work will not cease as marketing and networking will be essential.

Oh, and did I mention that I still have to edit Book 2 and write Book 3?  All of which will require the same steps needed for Book 1.

Still, I’m happy to be where I am right now.  Only God knows what will come of all of this but I pray this writing venture all goes well because I feel very blessed to be doing what I’m doing.

So, take it away Linnithia Leakes –

I CAN DO THIS!

Introducing … Landen Sohr

I continue to share little snippets of the characters in my current Series in Progress, The Nome Chronicles Trilogy.

Landen Sohr is a badass soldier who is part of Nome Reffour.  She is the head of security for the family and shadows Titan Reffour wherever he goes.

I envision her as an Asian lady who towers over everyone in height. She’s a blond baldy, with a square jaw and black eyes.

When I dug through the Google machine, I found loads of ladies who came close to my idea of Landen Sohr but none of them actually fit the bill.

Until I found a picture of Micah Gianelli. Continue reading “Introducing … Landen Sohr”

Finally Finished: ‘An Ember in the Ashes’

So happy I finally finished this book. It was a struggle in the beginning but I enjoyed it in the end.

Yayyyyy!!!

I finally finished reading An Ember in the Ashes and I’m having a happy Britney moment. Continue reading “Finally Finished: ‘An Ember in the Ashes’”

Introducing … Neith

Neith (pronounced NEETH, like Keith) is one of the main characters in my current series in progress, The Nome Chronicles Trilogy. When readers are first introduced to her, she is a seventeen year old girl on the verge of taking an important step that will affect not only herself but several others. She’s a bit naive about certain things, but eventually gets a bit tougher and smarter.

I’ve spent a lot of time with Neith in my head and in my writing. Sometimes, I know what she looks like and at other times, I don’t. I do know that she is a black girl with hazel-grey eyes and curly black hair.

I used to have pictures of what I thought she would look like, but then the computer crashed and … no need to go back to that most painful moment, right?

And so, now, I have to start again. Find images that closely resemble the character I have in my head.

Maybe her?
