2017 Goals!

Happy New Year Everyone!

We are 8 days in to 2017. New year! New goals! New Aspirations.

I decided to participate in an #Instagram challenge (#igauthorlifejan) and one of the days requested that all those who participated share what their resolutions or goals were.

So here are my goals for 2017

Publish 3 Works

I’m currently working on my newest novellete which will be called Breathe You. This story is dedicated to a friend of mine, so it has some meaning for me. The next one will be my try at a rock star story. I wanted to do one just to see if I could, so I hope it comes out the way I envision it. The last is Book 2 of The Kim Brother’s Series. I just realized Book 1 on December 30, 2016. Book 2 deals with the middle brother David. And he is very different from Jae, so I’m excited about these for the year.

Take Better Care Of Myself

I know I haven’t taken the best of care of myself. I have fibromyalgia (chronic pain) long with a host of other things, and I know my body is paying for it. Yes, I do what I can, but sometimes I lay awake in pain hoping I can finally get a decent amount of sleep. I’m thinking of putting yoga as something to help during the week. Maybe two times a week.

Self Discovery

I think you are never too old for discovering things about yourself. Your likes. Dislikes. Favorite things to do. What you want to do with your life? It’s so many things. The next day isn’t promised to any of us. So, this year it is a goal of mine to make sure I learn as much as I can about myself.

Graduate with my bachelor’s degree

At the end of the month I will start my last semester of college. I should have gotten my degree in 2009. My bachelors. Life happened. Some of it because of choices I made, and others because of other situations. Anyway I went back to school in 2007 to get my associates, and I finished it in a year. I told myself  one day I will get my bachelor’s so after two and a half years (5 semesters), I will graduate in June and I’m so happy about it.

Know my WORTH

I think this is the most important goal for me. I have a habit of not realizing what I am and what I’m capable of. What I give off into the world doesn’t necessarily register with others because I’m giving. Now this is not to toot my own horn, I know I give so much sometimes that I’m empty. This year my focus is to appreciate me. Appreciate my flaws, Appreciate all the things that makes me “Kay” and know that if someone can’t handle me at my worst. If someone can’t see my worth, than they no longer need to be in my life, my space or in my aura. I refuse to waste time on people who doesn’t give a damn about me no matter the relationship. So definitely knowing my worth is quite important.

Write horror story via Wattpad

If you know me well enough then you will know that horror is my first love. I love reading horror books and watching horror movies. I love horror so much that I even listen to audio horror on YouTube. Anyway while I do write romance, I do want to dabble in horror. Stephen King is my favorite author of all time. I feel I should do many shorts on Wattpad as a horror collection to see if I can do it. If it goes the way I want to, I will publish a horror story as I would my romance stuff.

Make Awesome Memories

2016 I was fortunate to be at a book signing, speak on a panel and meet many other authors who I have made friendships with. I have hung out with people and tried new things. 2017 is no different. I want to make the memories for the days when I feel like crap, I have something to look back on like man, this was a great day.

I hope that if any of you have any goals, that you try your best. I wish you all the luck and light.

Until next time!!

Kay 🙂

Enjoy a collection of steamy stories with Venefica Publishing’s first anthology… Smut

Last Friday Night:
What Happens on Friday’s is our little secret… Jessica has a little secret. She met her husband Peter in a sex club two years ago, and her life has been satisfying ever since. But work calls Peter away for the whole week and leaves the weekends free for fun, f*cking and no holds bared.

F*ck Me Please:
Sometimes offices are for work, and sometimes offices are for f*cking!

Jennifer want nothing more than to be f*cked all over and sideways by her fiancé who is always at work. Taking matters into her own hands she decides that this time the ball was in her court.

Bentley:
Mature audiences only. Contains M/F scenes and adult language

Clarissa is back and this time she’s brought the men with her…This is the first installment in a six part serial. Although each can be read as a standalone, it is best to read them in order.

Clarissa is an acclaimed journalist and blogger who sets out to show the erotic side of escorting by writing a blog article for her followers. She speaks to six men, in Connecticut, asking them to tell her one of their hottest encounters with a client.

The first man she interviews goes by the name of Bentley. After being released from a juvenile detention center he opened Cupiditas with five of his closest friends. Join him as he regales Clarissa with tells of lust and desire with, Chloe.

Wanton Secrets:
Ms. Cage is looking for a bit of fun away from her high powered job. She goes to a place at the urging of an associate. Once there however, she gets far more than she bargained for.

Betrayal By Blood:
The debt was due… I was the payment. The one who sold me… was family.

By the Moon:
It was just supposed to be one night last summer, just a fling with him at his welcome home party. Just one hot, delicious, drunken romp in his truck was all we agreed on. Except we couldn’t keep our hands off each other and it turned into all night.

Rome was the guy all the local girls wanted; good family name, easy on the eyes, skilled with his hands. And I didn’t need linked to him. I didn’t want to be in the shadowed spot light that was his life.

Now that man, who swore by the moon in a drunken confession that he was a witch, was at my library, silently waiting for me when I left work. I didn’t know what he wanted but he’d promised

me magic that night last summer. I didn’t believe in magic, but I knew the way he looked at me made me want to go back on my word.

Red:
Dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair… Wait, that’s the opening for my favorite Eagles song. Probably shouldn’t be drinking and telling you this, but it kinda sucks to be the wolf with no Red Riding Hood to seduce when one is in a mood, wait, I mean chase… chase, that’s it.

That is, until he shows up with flaming red hair and lots of muscles.

Bait, an erotic comedy, takes place in Baltimore where my protagonist, Katrina, is a thirty-something year old woman whose life has simply fallen flat after her ex dumps her. She finds herself going through the paces, hating every step, afraid to dare to be more. Until she bumps into Deck, young and impulsive yet wanting a real kind of love. By no means is he willing to become Kat’s “boy-toy” and he goes about convincing her to commit in a very… unconventional way.

Clash, an erotic drama, also taking place in Baltimore where the protagonist, Ava, has turned into a coldhearted and ruthless woman. She’s up for a promotion at her firm but is forced to work with her ex and prove to the board that she can work well with others in a difficult situation. She has every intention of getting in, getting out, and washing her hands completely of her past. Little does she know, Nick still loves her and refuses to let her ice him out again, but love cannot be forced.

Stephanie Kelley is a 36 year old sci fi geek who wishes Firefly was never canceled. She likes silly hats, karaoke, and doesn’t say “shiny” nearly enough. She is a straight up goof who has an obsession with all things gummy and makeup.

She works full time while pretending to be an adult. Who decided it was a good idea to invent rolly chairs that spin anyway? Chances are if you walk by her cubicle and she’s bopping along to her headphones there is a good chance it’s Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Dorothy or The Pretty Reckless.

She has a degree in Journalism but writes supernatural and fantasy stories. Something about the juxtaposition of those two things never fails to amuse her.

Free now to write whatever my naughty little heart desires I hope you enjoy every one of the – love, pain, angst, erotic filled pages I can conjure.

This Radio Love By: Misti Murphy Release Blitz

 

Title: This Radio Love 
Author: Misti Murphy 
Model: Cam Bruckman
Photographer: Kruse Images & Photography: Models & Boudoir
Cover Designer : Clarissa Wild
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is Doctor Love, your bad boy of the airwaves.
Think you know everything about sex, love, and dating?
 
You don’t.
 
That’s why you come to me. I’ve got your answers, Stalker Girl. I’ve got what you need. Right here, behind this zipper. You don’t want Mister Perfect. You want me. My voice, my filthy words tonguing your ear. And I’ve been dying to give it to you.
You’ve been all I can think about. And now that I know who you are, now that I know what you want, I’m going to make you fall for more than my voice on your radio. Think you can handle me?
 
I, Penny Morgan, career driven, self-confessed good girl, wouldn’t touch you if you were the last man on earth. So what if I’m addicted to calling you? So what if you caught me getting off to the sound of your voice?
I never date misogynistic pigs. I don’t fall for men who try to trick me. And the last thing I want is the world in on our secret. I know who you are now, Doctor Love, and if the public found out I was your Stalker Girl it would ruin us.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
(please remove if not reviewing ) 
 
 
Misti Murphy is a sadistic b*tch who loves to emotionally torture fictional people. If she did that in real life she’d probably end up in prison or a psych ward so she prefers to create dirty talking alphas and the sexually frustrated women who fall into their beds. And if someone needs to be smacked upside the head before f*cking turns to love then that makes her very happy indeed. 
She’s a huge believer in flaws making us human, and that not everyone likes bacon. She’s also addicted to chocolate and scared of the effects of the coming shortage. She swears like a f*cking trooper, and thinks that graphic smuttiness should be as real in fiction as it is in real life. 
When she’s not writing she’s the perfect housewife and mother. Ha bloody ha! When she’s not writing she’s hiding in a cupboard with her kindle, scoffing chocolate, and stalking facebook.

Color of Love Blog Hop

I’m an author who writes interracial novellas and short stories. I am a fan of a happily ever after and the kind of romance that consumes your soul with fire and make your cry with emotion once the last page of the book is reached.
For me love stories are extra special, but it is even better when we focus on those couples who already have it hard in the real world, why can’t they have a story that showcases their love and their lives as well?

My current novella which will be out on December 30, 2016. My characters Kasi (A Black Woman)  and Jae (A Korean Man) go through their trials to find love in each other and I hope that when it does come out, it will be enjoyed!
Now there are plenty of people (my fave authors) who writes interracial stories, some of who is a part of this blog hop!
Love is in the air especially during the holidays, and I wish you all the happiest of days with lots and lots of love!!!

We are celebrating multicultural and interracial love, so if you enjoy romance novels featuring people of color, then keep reading.
