Sneak Preview #DarkFacade | #SneakReader #amwriting #amreading

And you know you’ve been waiting all morning. I bet you even checked what time zone Detroit was in and was wondering why I hadn’t posted this morning.

I wake up at five and literally am going at sixty to one hundred miles an hour as soon as I put my feet on the floor.


I know… no, excuses!

I promised you a sneak peak to Book four and I’m going to give you just that.

I’d like to thank #SneakReader, SDunn for her help in a pinch early in the morning for helping me and responding fast to an email for some story research.

I’d love to hear your feedback. There might be some major errors in this puppy because Momma was very overwhelmed this week.

Okay, no more talkie talkie, time to post an excerpt…

#DarkFacade Book 4 Coming soon | Updates & Partial Book Cover Reveal #Sneakreaders #amreading #amwriting

Life as we know it for me has been a bit difficult.


Not only am I struggling to get into a house because currently my family and I are homeless (but staying with my father, which is a tale in itself), I’m also going through the gambit with men and my writing life. I’ve also started a new job that’s consuming all mental activities and making me really exhausted once I get home.

I’m suppose to be finishing up the edits to His Substitute Wife, but I had to put it down to get the house done. On top of that, I need to finish off Dark Facade Book Four.

I just need to work out the last part. I figured out who killed Lisa and I’ve pretty much wrapped up how I’m going to use Onyx, while slipping in a little bit more about what’s going on in her life – you know with Blaque & Shadow.

(Currently listening to The Tourist with Johnny Depp and I keep typing their lines.)

Also I’m working with @paytonleaf on the final book cover for Dark Facade.

Coming up with a fresh and final book concept to tie all the other books together is very difficult.

I really had planned on book three being the final and leaving it at that, but so much story line had to be put in book four so this is all new.

For this book cover, I thought to concentrate on the rugged Philippe. I hardly have men on my cover and I wanted to do something just a little bit different.

I’m going to incorporate some elements from book one and three into this one and go from there. Wish me luck and thank you for your patience.

Now that I’m 80% moved into my home – kids still need beds and I have other things around the house that need to be worked on (a roof, a basement, a kitchen and so forth) I think I can sit down enough to hack out all the notes I’ve made on scrapes of paper, on my phone and @Evernote (my most favorite app for writers in the world).

Next post will be by this Thursday when I’ll have an excerpt of the book available for you – my loyal #SneakReaders.

COVER REVEAL #DarkFacade Book Three #amreading by @paytonleaf


Evasive, but artistic.

Well, what do you think? (Answer in the comments below)

I’m really deep into getting this book done before next week.

Reviews are pouring in – some good, some bad – but I’m going to take this it like it is.

I do warn readers this is different than what I usually write and I would like to note, I originally wrote this in 2007, so stop telling me I’m trying to copy 50Shades.

Honestly, I’m not trying to.

This story originated when I saw a building with the address I describe in the book and the concept of the story came to me.

I’m excited about the hoopla the book is getting and I do appreciate your patience in getting the story to you.

Dark Facade: Book Three is coming.
