I am a very quiet person that dabbles in many hobbies.  I have found writing to be my passion to take me away from my stress and help me relax.  Very family oriented, I enjoy spending time with family and friends doing a big cookout or just having a good round of sister talk with the girls. I take each and blessing as a gift and never question why things happen.  We have to take the good with the bad to complete ourselves as a person.

Paperback Version of "Fighting the Desires"

I finally buckled down and finished the whole book cover for "Fighting The Desires."  When I first decided to write a book, I was so anxious to learn everything from publishing to designing the covers.  After doing two cover designs, I've come to the conclusion I don't need to know everything.  I will stick to the writing and let the designers do their job.

I have another cover in the works but I can pass off that design to the pros.  I'm dreaming edge dimensions, pixels and all the other formatting that goes with the territory of cover designing.  In an earlier post I vented my frustrations with Photoshop and Adobe InDesign programs in a whole...nothing has changed, I'm still  illiterate.  I used the programs I do know as best as I could and hopefully my final product will turn out as I envisioned.  Below is the final design for the book.



Until the paperback is available, "Fighting The Desires" is available for all eReaders for $0.99 at most online retailers such as www.amazon.com, www.bn.com and www.smashwords.com.

Fighting The Desires

Fighting the Desires is now available for eBook readers. Below is a brief synopsis.  I will be uploading it to www.smashwords,com soon and the paperback will follow thereafter.  I hope you enjoy the last series for the Lofton's sisters.

The year 2008 arrived as the Lofton sisters finally enjoyed a few years of drama free living, until Lieutenant Terrance Wilson entered Tina Lofton’s life.  His sudden investigation into her treatment of former patients who have turned up dead has turned her life upside down.
  
Dealing with personal issues that her sisters are not aware of, Tina now has to deal with the Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper prodding into her past and present, leading her on the verge of an emotional roller coaster ride.

Fighting The Desires 

Available at www.amazon.com and www.bn.com for $0.99.
