November 9 Colleen Hoover

November 9November 9 by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 angsty this is why I love New Adult stars. This book made me laugh and it made me hulk rage angry. This was me at one point during the story

But CO Ho made up for these feelings and then she gave me them again!

I won't spoil this story for anyone  so here it goes:

This is what i wanted to do at several points reading this

But the feels is worth it.

Some things I knew were coming and that's okay  they needed to happen and others I feel like Colleen just wanted to torture my paper heart but I love her stories anyway  :)

Read it you'll like it maybe even love it but don't touch Benton I love him  hehe

Black Rebel News

So I know it has been a while since I updated you guys on what is happening with the second generation of my Black Rebel Riders' MC Series. I have gotten a few questions regarding release dates and what the future looks like for the series.
I really wanted to get A Rebel Love released back in August but life had other plans for me as well as the voices in my head. Without getting into spoiler territory for those who follow me but haven't read the series yet, I will keep this as brief as I can. 
Book 7, which is A Rebel Love still needs to be read in order with the rest of the series to follow the Story ARC. This book is Tread and Truth's story, but also has POV scenes told from some favorites from previous books. Hence the needing to read in order.  
I will also be introducing new characters whom I hope you will love as much as the rest of my rebels. 
Colt/Cole will have a book and I do still have The Diary of Gypsy Red in the works. 
I don't have release dates as of now. I know that sucks. I hate not having a plan set in stone, but I really want to do this series justice and hope you understand that I am taking my time with them to take you on the best ride I can give. 
I know I have some other titles I have announced. I am still working on those too. I will not be announcing any future books until they are ready to publish. I get so excited and eager to share what I am working on with you, but sometimes I get blocked and I can't push past it, or life happens and I fall behind. I hate leaving you guessing when it will release. 
That said, I do plan to release the titles I have announced prior to this post. They will come out in 2016/2017. I am not sure if I will have another release this year, but I am writing daily.

A Rebel Love

Black Rebel Riders' MC #7 A Rebel Love is coming your way soon. Below you will find the Blurb, cover, teasers and an excerpt. 


This is Tread’s story and how he found A Rebel Love.
Brotherhood, respect and loyalty…Marc ‘Tread’ Adams has those things. Nights of meaningless sex, he has those too. The one thing Tread doesn’t have is love—love doesn’t exist in his life. He wants that ride or die love. He’s searching for that can’t eat, can’t sleep love. The parties, the girls, the empty bottles—they have meant nothing to him. Maybe he is looking in the wrong places, seeing the wrong faces and traveling the wrong roads.

Christa ‘Buttercup’ Franklin fell in love with a boy who grew into a man she swore to hate. Nothing good would ever come from The Black Rebel Riders’ MC in her eyes. As far as she was concerned, everything they touched turned to shit.  However, things change and so do people. What will Christa do when she has to depend on the man she swore she’d never love to save her brother?

Grady ‘Truth’ Williams has always been content with the life he leads, but Truth has never been in love until now. He craves someone he shouldn’t harbor feelings for. Lines become blurred between brotherhood and desire, creating an internal war he isn’t ready to fight.

Amy ‘Peaches’ Mathers is a club girl, so why should she feel she is any different from the rest.  She has always been told you get what you give, but she never intended to fall in love with a patched brother, especially one who is in love with another.  Amy has a choice to make…she can run from her feelings or fight with everything she has to claim the man who has stolen her heart.

The Black Rebel Riders’ Series continues to ride free or die trying. Are you ready to ride?
**This book contains M/F/M situations*** And also contains a bonus POV from a favorite character or characters.

Chapter 1
“Yo, Amy!” Roberta yells my name as she comes back in from her smoke break. “Your tall, dark and sexy is waiting outside on his Harley. Damn, if I was twenty years younger. What I wouldn’t give for a ride.” She shakes her head. Her salt ‘n pepper gray hair falls out of the poorly secured bun she had it in.
“I can ask him to take you down the street and back. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind,” I offer. Truth is a sweetheart.
“Darling that’s cute, but I didn’t mean the bike.” She winks and starts counting out my drawer for the night.  I giggle and blush. Roberta is a crazy bitch and I love her dearly. I couldn’t make it through this crap job at the gas station without her.
I make some money on the side being a club girl at the Roadhouse, but not enough to get me out of this dead-end wasteland. The guys at the club treat me right though. I spend most of my time with Grady, or as most know him Truth. He treats me real nice. Always picks me up from work anytime I ask. Never questions anything I ask, ever. He’s my best friend and I am his number one fuck.
“You’re crazy,” I tease and laugh. I can’t wait to tell Truth about his admirer.
“Why do you think Cal likes me so damn much? I keep him on his toes. I could teach you a thing or two that’d have your biker boy out there begging for a taste.”
“I think I’ll be alright.” I try damn hard not to even begin to imagine what she is suggesting. “Am I good to go?”
“Yeah baby everything looks good. Now go fuck that sexy thing and come back tomorrow and tell me all about it,” she says not even bothering to look up as she finishes banding the twenties and fifties for the moneybag.
If she only knew the things I do with Truth and his friend Tread. I could make Roberta blush and that is saying something.

Adventures in Writing: with my children home

So it has been a while since I have done an adventures in writing post. Apologies, I know so many of have you have missed my adventures (insert sarcasm) ha ha. Anyway, the kids are home on summer break, which as much as I gripe, I love having my babies with me. Don't tell them I called them my babies becasue then I will hear shouts of, "I am not a baby!" They don't understand that in my eyes they will always be my babies.

Back to my original reason for posting, sorry, I was getting lost in memories of days of sweet baby smells. Now I get, "he farted on me!" Charming I know. So here is how my summer has gone thus far: I have started four books- and I have probably only written 15 thousand words collectively. This is sad times folks. I wake up before my kids do with every intention of writing something-anything before they awaken, but then social media beckons me. And like the sheep I click on my email, my Facebook, Twitter etc. Then before I know it I have lost two hours. Two hours I could be writing  something magnificent or a total piece of shit, but at least I would be writing something. Sigh.

By the time I get my shit together and start my spotify and crack open my next masterpiece, I cringe, just as my fingers are ready to stroke the keyboard, I hear, "I'm hungry, what's for breakfast?" Some mornings I really have my act together and get breakfast ready before I sit my ass down at the computer, but that is rare, so I sigh, and grumble under my breath and fix breakfast. Once their tummies are getting filled, I sit down thinking okay, I've got this, but then I think well now I have lost my mojo, I'll just check my sales or Facebook and then I lose another precious hour.

I scream at myself, mentally...not aloud, I am not that crazy, yet. I open my WIP back up and then I hear, "It's my turn! MOM! He's hitting me. Well she's pinching me!" then a scuffle breaks out.  We go through this for the next thirty minutes or so until I can get them to see how ridiculous they are being.

We flip a coin to see who gets to play a video game first- becasue they can't be bothered to play together. I sit down again. Then my phone rings. I take my call and go back to my fantasy land that is waiting for me. My characters are shouting for me and waving. They are starving for my attention too but then comes, "I'm hungry! I need a snack, What are you making for lunch?"
"I hate that. I don't want that. You hate me. You want to make me eat stuff I don't like."

After lunch I try again to write and then I get, "Why are you on your computer so much? You never do anything fun with me." Here comes the guilt train all aboard. I start thinking about what was the last fun thing I did with them, granted it was the day before that I had spent the day playing chess and chutes and ladders, but I still feel guilty. Am I not giving them enough of my time? I remember back to my childhood...did I count on my parents so much for entertaining me? No I didn't. I was outside. I was riding my bike, roller skating, playing basketball. But still my guilt remains so I try to entertain them until it is time to cook dinner. Then I get sucked back online and after watching Alf reruns on Hulu until we fall asleep, I do it all over again the next day. This is my life and I wouldn't change any of it, except maybe I would get my shit together and get us on a schedule. Happy writing folks.

Reader tears, Outlander and Black Rebel Riders' MC

Reader tears, Outlander and Black Rebel Riders' MC...all drifting in a sea of hey look at me!

So, it has been a while since I have written a general update or post, and I feel really shitty about that. I feel like I have been swept out to sea and drowning in an ocean full of- hey look at me! Self-publishing is tiresome and I am exhausted. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do and I love the book community but social media is taking its toll on me and I don't like it. Too often I am getting caught up in what everyone is doing versus what I should be doing. Everyone wants to know, what will it take to get noticed? What can I do to sell more books? The answer is...I have no idea. I just want to write and read. God, do I love to read and play with the voices who stir in my mind, tirelessly. 

If you love my books that is awesome and if you don't like them so much that is okay too. I don't love everything I read. This is mostly me rambling  and clearing my head but I used to share my adventures in writing with you and I felt compelled to type this out. So where am I at now? I have taken the past week off and gotten swept up in the epicness that is the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. Gah what a wonderful series. It has reminded me why I love to read and write so much. I love when I get those small reminders from time to time. There's just something so wonderful about falling in love over and over again with someone's prose. But the struggle is real-  do I want to write or do I want to read? In order to write I must read- reading is a writer's superpower. I have never understood writers who say they hate to read.

So, now I am reading my Black Rebel Riders' MC Series again. I thought I would have book 6 written by now but life happens. I had forgotten to take care of me and let a lot of things go while drifting in the sea of hey look at me! I have to remind myself it's okay to take time away. It's okay to binge watch an entire season of a great show on Netflix every now and again. So that is what I have been doing while trying to promote two books. I have been putting off writing book 6 to be honest. I have let myself become paralyzed by fear...fear of disappointing  those who enjoy the rebel series. And I can't write while feeling that way.  But I am getting back to work on it. I'm remembering why I started writing this series to begin with, I wanted to write what I want to read and that is what I intend to do. 

People have asked me how many books there will be in this series and I honestly don't know. Every time I start writing a book in this series I think it will be the last one but then my rebels raise their jars of moonshine and tell me-not yet, they still have more to say. Lastly, thank you for everything- for buying my books, reviewing my books, messaging me, shouting at me, shaking your fists at me, giving me the finger when I piss you off- ha ha. Thank you for sharing your tears of happiness and sorrow with me- I do drink them for breakfast.

Hope you have a great week- I have a date with Rebel Black...

The Suffocation of Katie

I have exciting news! I have a New Adult Rockstar Romance releasing April 10th!

Title: The Suffocation of Katie
The Suffocation of Katie

New Adult Rock Star Romance Novel by author Glenna Maynard.
Cooper's Religion is an Indie rock band on their way to the top but...one question...one lie stands to ruin it all. Kai Cooper is my pain and I'm Katie, his biggest regret. This is our love story and the journey to his first album-The Suffocation of Katie.

Kai—the lead singer of Cooper’s Religion, pulls up a stool and lowers the mic. Taking his seat with his guitar strapped over his chest, brown shaggy hair hangs across his eyes. His hand shifts, brushing his hair back and he smiles when a girl screams out, ‘I love you Kai.’ His dimples pierce straight through me owning my soul. 
His voice comes out so soft and smooth, it is sexual and romantic the way he strums his guitar. “If this is what being hurt by you feels like, then…I love pain…” No lyric has ever rang more true for me. “Being loved is just like being suffocated.”
His fingers move through the chords with ease and he looks at me, his eyes burning with desire. “I’m on fire,” he sings the chorus and I die a little on the inside. “I’ll be your pain and you’ll be my biggest regret…you set me on fire. Give me your love and suffocate me…I’m on fire.”

☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Five questions with M. Stratton

Eek! today I have the fantabulous M. Stratton in my hotseat! She is my brand of crazy and has a fork stabbing fetish, maybe. Ha ha kidding kidding or am I?

About the author

M. Stratton is an International Amazon bestselling author in the romantic suspense and mystery suspense categories for her debut novel After the Storm. She is a self-proclaimed dork that loves to make people laugh and can trip over nothing. Her inner rock star is always on stage performing to a sold out crowd but is quiet and shy on the outside.

She lives with her husband and son in Arizona, which is a big difference from where she grew up north of Chicago Illinois. As an only child she learned to tell herself stories to make the long winters go by quicker while dreaming of summer vacations. Now as an adult she still makes up stories to pass the time, but now she writes them down to share with other people.

When not writing you can find M. watching football (Go Bears!), NASCAR, or classic movies, watching her husband and father restore classic cars, and seeing who can be sillier, her or her son, and of course reading.

Things you don’t know about M. Stratton:
1. She loves the movie Twister… she can say all the lines along with the actors. She will also use those lines in real life as often as possible. 

2. Halloween is her favorite holiday. She starts planning months in advance. She has more Halloween decorations than Christmas. 

3. She once made up a monologue about her love of chocolate chip cookie dough for her high school drama class.

4. There are times she thinks she is so funny she has tears running down her face while laughing at herself.

5. M. can play the clarinet but is in awe of anyone who can play the guitar, piano or drums, pretty much anything where your hands have to do two different things at the same time. 

6. Cary Grant is her favorite actor. When she was in high school after Cary Grant died one of the cable stations ran a marathon, she watched his movies from 6 in the morning all day and night until 4 AM the next day.

7. Reading has always been an escape for her. She can devour a book in hours. When she moved in with her husband she literally donated over 1,000 books and saved over 1,000 for herself. She can reread books over and over again if she loves them. There are some that she has reread about once a year for the past 20 years.

8. She eloped after knowing her husband for only two months in 2006. They are still married over seven years later.

☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Five questions

1. What is your favorite dessert? Strawberry shortcake, but I don’t like it when the shortcake gets soggy, so I eat it really, really, really fast.
2. Coke or Pepsi? Coke, coke, coke and more coke.
3. Chocolate or vanilla? Yes please.
4. If you were a secret agent what would your codename be? Miss Terree
5. Love at first sight or lust at first sight? Both, the trick is knowing which one it is when it happens to you.

New Release

When Dreams Come True (The Star Series, #1)

When Dreams Come True (The Star Series, #1)

What would you do if one day all of your dreams came true? 

Melissa 'Lissa' Loring was a successful author. She was happy living in her home at the base of the mountains in Tucson with her assistant, Hannah Mills. First the phone call came; they wanted to make one of her books into a movie. Within six months, she was flying out to Los Angeles and talking with the studio about the final script and a list of actors to play the roles. Excited about her lunch meeting, she was shocked when her muse for one of the characters walked in and sat down at the table with her. 

Will Martinsson was riding high on his fame and loving every minute of it. He traveled the world meeting his legions of fans and could pick which roles he wanted. When the script was presented to him, he read it and was intrigued. Then he found out that the author had modeled the character after him, so he searched out information on her and his interest was piqued. He told the studio he wanted in, but he also wanted to meet her before he would sign on the dotted line. 

When two independent, successful people meet and have a strong connection, there is nothing they can do but see where the dream takes them.

☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Nine questions with Katherine Rhodes

Today in my hotseat is the wonderful Katherine Rhodes. I adore her, she is one of the best  authors I have befriended. 

About the author
Katherine Rhodes

Armed with her Bachelors of English, Literature from Montclair State University and a pen name, Katherine Rhodes has set her mind to writing erotic romances which are kinky, dirty, and fun. A lackadaisical laundry goddess, expert in the profundities of bad movies and awful literature, she resides in Philadelphia with her husband, three cats and a betta named Fishtian Grey.

☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Nine questions

1. If you could go back and reread any one book for the first time what would it be? It's actually a trilogy-- called the Fionavar Tapestry, by Guy Gavriel Kay. It was a gift from my high school English teacher and it was amazing, and still is. I reread it about once every two years. 
2. Name one song you could listen to everyday and never grow tired of it. My Immortal, by Evanescence
3. Do you outline your story or fly by the seat of your pants? I think I'm turning into a reformed pantser. I've been plotting a bit lately and I kind of like it. I don't always stick to the plot, but it makes it easier when I don't know which way to go. 
4.  If you could sit down with any Author for dinner who would it be and why? Anne McCaffery. I grew up loving everything about all of her books and all of the wonderful worlds she created. I loved getting lost in them. That she was a woman writing in SciFi at the time was amazing-- it was a male dominated world when she started and she didn't care. 
5. You get to choose the car of your dreams what do you get? Lamborghini. Rust Red or smoke gray. I have dreamed of that car since I was about 7 years old. Le Sigh.
6. What's one author you wish more readers knew about? Nawal el Sadaawi. (Ok, look, I'm kind weird and really into all kinds of crazy things.) She's an author from Egypt, and she's amazing. She doesn't write long books, but they are poignant and just dig in your soul and pull out all the feels. ALL the FEELS. Start with The Circling Song. 
7. What are you currently working on? The Darkest Corners, for The Club Series. It's a nice dirty BDSM erotica story. :D 
8. Finish the sentence...A world without books would be --the wrong planet. We obviously took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.
9. Tell me something about you that would surprise most. 
I'm ridiculously shy and awkward and have a terrible social phobia... most people are shocked to find that out because I come across as expressive and confident. I'm not. I'm a chicken.

Half-Soul (The Realm #1)

Half-Soul (The Realm #1)

Hell called to his soul, but his soul resisted. 

Or that’s what Asher Terhune believed. 

Born from the demonic seduction of his human mother, his birth destroyed her marriage. They were left with only a Guardian and Watcher to protect them from his demon heritage. Born with a half-soul, Asher quickly learned to use the Seven Deadly Sins to fill the hole inside himself. 

His favorite sin was Lust. 

Women had no chance of a second night with Asher, once he was done with them. And he had no intention of changing his ways. Until the sweet, calm, caring Sarah Illfrig rocks his world, and refuses his bed. 

Asher finds her refusal unacceptable and takes on the challenge of seducing her. Sarah pushes him away even as the desire she feels for him is pulling her in. 

But Sarah harbors her own secrets, and when the Guardian and the Watcher find out, it becomes imperative to keep Sarah and Asher apart.

☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Five questions with Lisa Suzanne

Today in the hotseat I have the supercool Lisa Suzanne, author of contemporary romance. She gave me a few minutes of her time recently and I am excited to have her on!

About the author

Lisa Suzanne started handwriting her books on yellow legal pads after she took a creative writing class in high school. She still has those legal pads full of stories, but now one of them is published under the title How He Really Feels. She currently works as a full time high school English teacher, and her favorite part of the year is summer. She has been blessed with the world’s best dog, a supportive family, and a husband who encouraged her to publish after reading one of her novels. She likes the advice of Ernest Hemingway’s famous quote, “Write drunk. Edit sober.”

 ☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Five questions

1.Do you prefer to write during the day or night? Before I published, I could only write really late at night! But now I write whenever I can fit it in.
2. Name one song you could listen to everyday and never grow tired of it. "Demons" by Imagine Dragons
3. What is your favorite dessert? Cheesecake! My favorite is the White Chocolate Caramel Macadamia Nut one from Cheesecake Factory
4.Do you outline your story or fly by the seat of your pants? I've always been a "pantser," which always felt extremely hypocritical given the fact that I teach high school English and I force my students to outline. But when I wrote Vintage, I needed to outline events because of the suspense angle. So I'm a recent convert from a "pantser" to a "planner." 
5. What are you currently working on? I'm working on a series that was actually the first series I ever completed. I started writing it probably fifteen years ago and it has gone through many changes and revisions over the years. I'm actually contemplating putting the first version up on Wattpad and then publishing the new, revised version. It's so completely different! I can't wait to finish it and share it! 

 Coming Soon! May 1st

Vintage (volume 1)

Born the daughter of a rock star and his groupie, my life should have been full of glitz and glamour. But the excess and embarrassment of that life didn’t interest me. Instead, I killed time at Vintage, a record store where I stocked shelves and lacked ambition. 

Everything changed the moment I pressed play. One simple lyric awakened me. 

When I stopped denying my attraction to the man behind the music, I started questioning his intentions. We were meant to cross paths, but it wasn’t because of fate. 

Someone was playing with our lives.

Volume 2 releases June 5
