One of the reasons I write …

I received the following message from a new reader of my series Ms. Nice Nasty and I LOVE IT! This is what writing is about for me! See, I’ve said before … Writing is my God given gift and I use it, not for sales (because it still pays as a hobby), but because it’s my passion. I write to build relationships, to help and to encourage.

You have to understand, I’ve had many of prayer sessions with God asking if this is what I should continue and each time He shows me that I have no choice but to do it! Yes, I am a preacher of God’s word and yes I write about sex however it doesn’t change my assignment! God equipped me for this and this is the reason I DON’T listen to naysayers.

I write because God planted the seed inside of me at my creation!

Anyway, here’s the message I received …

10927166_10200145892887160_782862172234870223_o Ms. Nice Nasty

Camille Holden-Shannon has always been who she says she is, a woman who can command a courtroom and bedroom without opening her mouth! She’s sexy, confident and not afraid; her credentials speak for themselves. She loves her family and her career but she cannot deny the fact that she loves sex and lots of it. She doesn’t break up homes; she simply gets what she needs and she’s gone!

Her career suddenly takes a turn in the right direction and she is thrown into the public’s eye and all hell breaks loose! A secret adds more fuel to the fire already burning inside her chaotic home and to make matters worse she finds herself being tormented by a ghost from her past! Can she hold it all together or will she break under the pressure? Will Ms. Nice Nasty hang up her stilettos or can she come out on top like she’s known to do.

When you allow your past hurt to push you into present sin, it may not work out so well!

For Camille, she proudly proclaims to be “unapologetic” about the way she lives her life but when her actions start affecting everything she knows, she has to make a choice between being ‘nice’ or ‘nasty’.

In Cam’s Confession, Camille finally takes therapy serious. She slowly opens the box of her past as she deals with the hurt that made her a woman scorned. Dr. Scott hopes with her finally releasing this demon, she can now move on with her life. But can she?

She thought revenge was what she needed but it only made matters worse. She thought sex would do it but it only made her worse. Now what?

With her life, marriage and career barreling out of control; will she be able to stop the train before it wrecks?

Find out in this 11,000 words special edition of Ms. Nice Nasty. Also, get a sneak peek into the first two unedited chapters of Ms. Nice Nasty 2.

All of her past skeletons come tumbling out at the same damn time!

Just when Camille thinks she has the chaos of her life under control, the clouds break and she has a hard time controlling the storm. Her already shaky marriage is crumbling before her eyes, add to it her husband’s pregnant side chick and all the skeletons in her closet; she may be in over her head!

Now, she’s standing face to face with Karma and it’s the last person she’d ever expect it to be. The same person, who has been tormenting her the last six months, is now threatening to ruin everything she has worked so hard for.

She should have listened when her mom told her, “your actions have consequences” because now she’s finding out the hard way. Will she back down under the pressure of being exposed or will she lay all of her cards on the table? What will it take for her to open her eyes?

Maybe she should have listened to her therapist or maybe it’ll take the possibility of losing her career, a near death experience of someone she loves or the unexpected death of a loved one, to open her eyes. Or is it simply too late?

Has her actions left her with more than she can conquer or can she survive with her mind, marriage and career intact? Find out in the series finale of Ms. Nice Nasty!

Wild Out Wednesday – #MsNiceNasty

“Oh, so let me get this straight. I’m the reason you went out and slept with someone else without a condom and produced a child? Very original Thomas.”

“That’s not what I meant. I made a mistake Chelle, I mean Cam.”

“Wow,” I laugh. “But you say I need therapy. You got the nerve to tell me what I’m doing wrong, always acting like I can never do anything right yet you’re no better than me. You sorry bastard. You walk around like your shit don’t stank, like you’re a saint who never make mistakes, yet in a few months your mistake will be born.”

“I don’t know if that’s even my baby.”

“You should know because if you used protection, you wouldn’t be in this position but no, you’re so busy trying to find out where I am and all the time I thought it was because you cared but in actuality you’re were just trying to make sure we didn’t run into each other.”

“That’s not true.”

“Oh but I have to give you credit, you did a great job at it because you even had me fooled but while you were checking on me you should have been keeping your side chick in check.”
“What do you expect from me when you walk around here like you’re single? You treat me like I am one of your children and you never take my feelings into consideration. You come in at all times of day and night, wear all this sexy ass lingerie and there’s no telling who you’re sleeping with but now you want to act like I’ve committed the ultimate crime. I made a mistake.”

“Great speech. You almost bought me to tears but it was actually the bullshit starting to burn my eyes. I’ve never said I was a saint because I sin everyday yet I never allow it to affect our home. You get sex whenever, wherever and however you want it and no matter what I’ve done outside this home, it has never been bought here so you can save all that shit for somebody who gives a damn because mine has run completely out. You fucked up and got caught; point blank period.”

“So what now?”

“Now, you get the fuck out of my face!”

“But–”

That was all he got out before I threw my glass right at his head.
“I asked you to get out my face. The next time something gets thrown I won’t miss.”

Bookaversarie!

Yesterday, April 7, 2016 was one year that I’ve released the first book in my second series! WOW!! Yes, I’ve written a few books since then but it’s still surreal. I mean, I never thought I’d be a published author but then Delphine Publications came along and I’ll tell anybody that’ll listen how grateful I am for Tamika Newhouse. She is a chick that grinds, minute by minute and she it taking the literary industry by storm (If you don’t know her, Google her) LOL.

10927166_10200145892887160_782862172234870223_o

But I didn’t start this post to be all sentimental but I’m writing this for somebody out there that doesn’t think they can do it. YES YOU CAN! You can do whatever you set your mind to. Please understand this, writing isn’t for wimps (I’ve said it before). There will be times you push and you still won’t get the sales you thought you should. There will be times you think you’ve written a great book and it’ll still get bad reviews. There will be times you pray for mega support and you won’t get it (even from family and friends). This is why you have to remain strong.

And STOP gauging your success off of what somebody else has. You are not them and they are not you. Don’t expect your book to be on New York Time’s best seller list the day after you publish and no one knows your name. Don’t release a book on Tuesday and expect a major publishing company to pick you up on Wednesday. It takes time in this line of business. Why? Because there are 100 other people writing about the same thing you are. But that’s ok, continue to write.

If you don’t get anything else from this post, get this … remain humble in your gift. Stay the course and it’ll eventually work out. You’ll go from getting $26 royalty checks to $2600 royalty checks … in God’s time! Let your work speak for you and it’ll happen. For the bible tells us in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

So as I celebrate another milestone, please understand; I am not there yet either but it doesn’t mean I’m getting off the ride. One of hese good ole days, I’ll be writing how I went from that $26 royalty check to $2600. Don’t believe me just watch!

God has given me an amazing gift and I know He didn’t give it to me to bury it in the ground because eventually it’ll pay off. So I’ll be patient until it does. You do the same thing. Don’t give up on what you have and what you’ve done. It will work out.

Trust in your gift!
