Derek Black isn’t just any blind date. Charming and handsome, yes, but something is amiss. From the glittering lights of Seattle to the shadowy foothills of the Cascade Mountains, hang onto your stilettos, Mimi! In one evening, she finds romance and danger on a champagne-fueled thrill ride. ~ Carmine Valentine

It’s Finally HERE!

Finally available for digital downloading on both Amazon’s Kindle and Kindle for PC, and Barnes and Noble’s Nook as well as other e-readers.  Some Day Somebody is Book 1 in my La Fleur de Love series.

Some Day Somebody is the story of one  woman’s encounter with independence, intrigue, and intimacy in the arms of
a man who helps her to realize it’s never too late for a new beginning. 

Carrie Jeansonne’s Plan for the rest of her life: Education  (check), Career (check), Provide for her three teenagers (check), Divorce  controlling, horn-dog of a husband (somewhat nasty, but progressing), and find  some happiness (not so easy).  The thirty-six year old mother wants to concentrate on her new drafting career in Road Design with no added complications – is that too much to ask?

Enter Sam Langley: Knocking on forty, single, and hating it. Formerly the office clown, his morose mood has prompted his co-workers to dub him “Oscar the Grouch” in the year
since his wife’s departure and his divorce.   After clashing with his new, outspoken co-worker, the surveyor can’t  help but be drawn to this brassy, sassy lady with her take no prisoner  attitude.

Plagued by her ex-husband’s can’t- take-no-for-an-answer  intrusions and sleep depriving phone calls, Carrie is reluctant to allow another man into her life.  By the time
she decides Sam could be more than a friend, the mysterious phone calls lead to
something dark and disturbing.  As Carrie realizes she may be dealing with more than her disgruntled ex, she struggles to overcome the obstacles threatening her happiness as well as her life.

I’m extremely proud of my Cajun heritage and try to inject the flavor and flair of southern Louisiana in the form of food, customs, dialect, or music. I would love the opportunity to introduce you to ‘my people’, the witty, wonderful, and sometimes wild characters of my imaginary world.

COMING SOON!

Last First Kiss

Book 2 of La Fleur de Love Series

Decisions….Decisions!

Okay, so I’ve decided to self publish. Yes, I’m sending my work to agents and publishers. Yes, I’m constantly editing my manuscripts to make them tighter, better. Yes, I’m getting some fantastic feedback in the form of high quality rejection letters…any of you authors out there know that a high quality, personal rejection is much easier to swallow than a ‘form’ rejection. UGH!   But all in all, a good rejection doesn’t put money in your pocket.

So, as I said, I’ve decided to try the self publishing route. E-books and print on demand from both Amazon (Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (Nook).

The dilemma? Choosing a genre for my stories. They contain suspense and romance but I’ve been told they don’t exactly qualify as Romantic Suspense. WTH??? So, I kick into research mode and pull up all sorts of articles stating the differences between Fiction, Romance, Suspense, Mystery, etc.

What it comes down to is this…I write fiction. I write from both the women’s and men’s points of view. They have romance, some have mysteries, all have a little suspense, but not as the main storylines. The five (and a half) books I’ve written are a series, in that each book will have characters that are included in the following book.  I’ve even found a fantastic name for the series that works in the Lousiana story settings.  I call it “La Fleur de Love” series. My books are novels, because they all come in between 90,000 to 100,000 words. They have subplots with multiple characters and storylines.  The problem is, I can’t seem to follow the strict guidelines called for by the industry for one particular genre. So what does a rambling, rebel writer such as myself do in this situation?

She sells it as Mainstream Women’s Fiction. Why? Because it allows me to do what I do best in writing, which is to bend the rules…color outside the lines…have some fun with my stories.

All I can do now is get them out there, and hope I find a family of readers who have as much fun reading my work as I have writing it.

Later,
Lori
