I can not believe it has been almost a year since I hit publish on my first book. This past year has been amazing. I have met so many wonderful people and look forward to meeting many more of you. I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me, whether it has been buying my books, sharing in this journey with me or simply cheering me on thank you. I may not be a NY Times bestseller out of the gate but I hope to see my name on the list one day. But I can say that I have hit several top 100 charts on Amazon, Amazon UK, Amazon Australia among others. That in itself is a huge accomplishment for me.
There are so many people who have been there for me through all of the ups and downs and I am afraid to list names because there are so many of you I'd surely miss someone. But My Dummies and 101 ladies you know who you are. And a huge thanks to my support team Glenna's Beautiful Strangers, you ladies amaze me and thank you for always having my back.

I am breaking up with you. It's not me it's most definitely you. Why is that do you ask? Well for one you are extremely nosey. It is none of your business what my phone number is or whether or not I played t-ball at four. You are constantly changing, I can't keep up. You give me whiplash. Make up your mind already! Like pages used to be a great way to meet new readers and find new authors or blogs or companies I wanted to get to know, but now you are asking the little man for money. I am sorry but if I am going to invest in advertising it is going to be with someone who puts the money where it's mouth is and reaches who it promises to reach. Why do people bother to like pages if you aren't going to show the people who like it anything that is posted. I am an Indie author and it is a tough gig. I mean tough, you ever heard of a one man publishing house? Well that is what an Indie author does, and no it isn't your fault I am a struggling writer in hopes of reaching the masses. But you know what is your fault- that I have lost out on the one place that was a great avenue to reach the people who like my books and want to keep up with me without having to friend me and even now if they friend me they still don't see me, unless I look like a conceited ass-hat who likes and comments on all her own post before anyone else does, just so that they are visible. When I first started my like page last year my post would on a good day reach 1,000 people and now I am lucky to reach 50, so thanks for ruining what once was a enjoyable site for the little guys like me. And there are lots of us who I am sure will agree that no it's not me it's you.

Before Lynae, my heart was just sitting lifeless in my chest. I wasn't living. I've hidden away the shame and the regret for so long, that I never thought anyone could break through. She did that, and so much more.
I need Lynae more than I need air to breathe. She is everything to me. The night Lynae walked into my life, I knew that I would never be the same. My heart started to feel again.
Now that I've pushed her away, the walls that I had built stand to destroy us. I have to get her back. I can't live without her.
She is the one thing in this world that can make my heart beat.
Moving cautiously forward, I close some of the distance between us. The sight of her, her smell washing over me, has my hands itching to reach out and feel her in my arms again. “God, Sweetness. I’ve missed you so much.” I keep stepping forward until I’m standing right behind her. I’m only a foot away, and I can hear her breaths coming out in quick pants.
Lynae turns around, leaning against the counter, but keeps her head down. “What are you doing here, Connor?”
I hold my hand up to lift her chin, but she pulls away, turning her face to the side, refusing to look me in the eyes. “Please look at me.” I bend my knees, bringing us face to face. The pain I see reflected back when our eyes collide rips at my chest. Tears are pooling in her eyes. “I love you, baby. Please talk to me. Say something. Anything.”
Lynae’s bottom lip trembles. “What do you want me to say?”
I know what I want her to say. I want her to say that she loves me and that we can go back to the way things were. “Say whatever you need to say to me. Just talk to me.” I reach out again to trace her bottom lip with my thumb and cup her cheek. This time she doesn’t pull away, she closes her eyes and lets me hold her face. “Please.”
“I can’t do this, Connor. I just can’t.” her voice cracks.
“Can’t do what? Can’t love me? Please, you have to forgive me. I am so sorry for hurting you.”
Lynae grabs my wrist in her tiny fingers and pulls my hand away from her face. She tries to push me away, then places her palms flat against her stomach. I fall to my knees, reach out and wrap my arms around her waist pulling her to me, and bury my face against her belly. “Connor!” she gasps.
“Please, Lynae. I’m begging you. I need you. Please tell me that you still love me.” I can feel tears pricking my own eyes. My throat feels like it may close up from the gut wrenching pain I’m bulldozing through me.
Lynae’s hands find their way into my hair. She doesn’t push me away, she lightly runs her fingers through my unruly hair. This small sign of affection gives me hope. “It’s not that I don’t love you, Connor. It’s just-“
“Just what? Sweetness, I will never forgive myself for what happened. I can’t even begin to imagine how much you must hate me, but I’m asking you to please give me another chance.” I beg looking up into her eyes so full of pain.
“I don’t hate you. I wish I could, but I can’t. I still love you, and that’s what makes this so hard.”

When I first decided to do the Masquerade series I really thought there would only be three books but my characters' just aren't having it. So my news is that there will be more books in the series. Book four will be titled Beautiful Nightmare and will take place in New York City. I am really excited that I have made the decision to continue the series. I do not have any release dates set. I have grown to love the Masquerade Club and all of the characters' in the series I'm not ready to say goodbye just yet. I do have several other projects going on at the moment, so I am unclear of my release order at this time. Thank you for loving this series as much as I do and continuing to follow me on this journey. I could not do this without all of the support you have given me. You guys rock my socks off! So, what is my releases looking like? This Tuesday 3/11/2014 I will release Beautiful Lover book 3 of the Masquerade series. This summer I will have a biker novella in an anthology. I am working on a standalone titled Our Last Goodbye. Also I am working on a sequel to I'm with You, titled Just to be with You, this book will pick up with Brianna and Hurley, but do not worry Bella and Cutter will be along for the ride. I have not set release dates for these titles but I hope to have them out later this year. Oh and I did not forget about my dirty biker series, The Black Rebel Riders' are coming I just don't know when as of yet. But Baby, Rebel, Striker and Rumor can not wait to tell you their stories! If you have any questions about any of this feel free to message me anytime. You can usually find me hanging around on facebook or twitter. Much love xoxox Glenna
