The Moment of Truth---5/30/2012---12:01 p.m.

Hello Readers,

I have so many mixed emotions right now. I am happy. I am scared as freak and part of me doesn't even know what to feel. My article hit today. I haven't seen it, but I imagine it hit front cover because I have already been getting responses. After all, it's not like I didn't know what I was getting myself into in the first place. My sister called my like ten minutes ago to look up my book. She works downtown at the courthouse, so of course, they get the papers first. I'm way down here in the country and I may not even see that paper until tomorrow. Anywhoo, back to the story. She called me from the courthouse. You know everybody in the office she works in is like family, so everybody was looking. I could hear them in the background. They was like come on give me the title some we can find you girl. I was like, oh no, there's a curse word in it, that's why I didn't put the series title in the paper. I know how much I brag about my book. I am so proud of my book to everybody except my family and their older friends. I mean my people are very religious and this is not the type of book I would want to show to my church family. Til this day, my mother is the only older person in my family who knows that I write. The only thing my mother is in the dark about is the cover. I never showed my mother the cover because I know she's going to try to find the book even though I told her never to read what I write. I consider myself the grey sheep of the family. I am not pure and white, but I am also not the total screw up that you'd expect from a black sheep. I told you guys before that I academically known in the community, but I never in a million years thought that one article could create such a buzz. I am proud of who I am and what I do, but I'll be honest, there is some doubt. I find myself struggling between who I am and what other people view me as. Writing erotica is sort of like breaking the chains between the two. I want to break out of what everybody expects of me, but I am kind of reluctant to see what may happen after those chains have broken. I'm excited to see what's next and I am relieved that everybody important to me knows now. A weight has been lifted, now I can do what matters most to me and that's write.

This is sooo ridiculous that I have to say this, but I honestly don't know how I want to release my next book. I am still adding on like I informed you in my last post, but I don't know when to stop. Most writers, if not all, get that feeling of when to end a book. I just haven't gotten that feeling yet. I don't know if part of what I am writing is going going to be the end of book 2 or the beginning of book 3. I won't know until I get everything in print and then I can see where I want to go from there.

Until next time, tell me what you think.

Changes---5/25/2012---9:49 a.m.

Hey Readers,

I wanted to drop in and give you a heads up. There has been a few slight changes in my book. Yesterday I said I was finished and I was...or at least I thought I was. Last night I was telling a friend of mine that I didn't like my ending. Well, I like the actual material, but I wasn't satisfied with it being the actual ending. Anywhoo, we talked for hours and she helped me develop a more appropriate ending. I'm going to keep what I've written and just add on. Now, I haven't really decided how I'm going to this, but I'm looking into doing another Part 2. This time, however, I am not going to sell the Part 1 first like I did on What it Took to Get Her. It's all going to be together in one book in all the formats I sell it in. Now that I think about it, it's good that I didn't set a release date yet, because I'd have to push it back again. Anywhoo, I was just stopping in to let you know what's going on. I have to cut this post short because I have an online Calculus module to learn and a final to take before June. Yep, that's my lovely college welcome.

Until next time,

Queen B

My First Big Article!---5/18/2012---2:26 p.m.

Hey Readers!

I just landed the most awesome opportunity in my life! I am going to be featured in the Mansfield Enterprise. Well...I'm used to being in there. In fact I've been in almost every edition for the past month. The newspaper joked that the 2012 Valedictorians of this parish are sort of like local celebrities, because of how often we had been in the paper. Anywhoo, all that's for academic, so that's not my point. At graduation, I received a Sheriff's Scholarship, so me and the other Valedictorians of this parish had to go get our picture taken for the newspaper. That's when the editor from the Enterprise approached me about my last appearance in the Shreveport Times. She's been trying to get in contact with me since that paper came out, because she wanted to run a story about me for her paper. She talked about how she thought it was interesting that I am a published author. I was telling her that when I do interviews and articles in the paper, my counselor and I didn't really focus on me as an author. We focus on me as a future OB/Gyn, because I am well known in my community through all the things I have done academically. Erotica isn't a genre my community would expect me to write, so in the paper we just call it adult fiction. Anyway, I know it is crazy, but I tried to sway her away from my author status even though I know this is great publicity. The editor was like, oh it's great you want to be a doctor and you are excellent in academic, but I think the readers would love to hear more about your books and this other side of you. People say that if you want to be known, you have to start with your community first and work your way up. I tried to skip my community, but it seems like my community is following me. It's not a bad thing either, it's scary because this is my first article in the paper that's not based on my schoolwork and I don't know how people will take it yet. People are going to always be proud of me as long as I'm not selling my body on somebody's street corner. I thought long and hard last night. I made up my mind and I called the editor this morning and she told me what she wanted and I've sent her all the information she needs to develop an article. This is me, this is what I do, and this is who I am and I am not ashamed. If people don't like it, I'm not going to stop writing or change my genre. This is my first article and it was basically placed in my hand. Where else am I going to find that without paying for a spot? Nowhere, so I'm jumping at any chance I get. Now I am super excited and can't hardly contain myself. So, I can't wait for it to come out!

Strike One---5/17/2012---1:29 p.m.

Hello Readers,

On my last post, I informed you that I was looking into guest blogging. Well I did look into it and I found a site that same day. They had a list of about five topics to choose from and I did. It had to be like 250-800 words. I also had to include a picture that pertained to the blog and a couple other things that I don't remember exactly. Anywhoo, I check my email about an hour ago only to find the following:

Hi Queen,

Thank you for your interest in guest posting on ***** ****. Unfortunately we are only accepting submissions from our current authors. Good luck on finding another outlet for your article!


The Author Relations Coordinator

Now, I am in no way upset...maybe disappointed a little, but getting turned down comes with the territory. My issue is basically that I feel like I was misinformed, because the website was for anybody. Nowhere did it say, "Only for our current authors." Anyway, like I said, I'm not really upset, just a little disappointed. On the other hand, I am very intrigued about this entire process and I honestly can't wait to try it again even if I get shot down again. I am so intrigued that I can't wait to get more followers, so I can invite people to guest blog.

One thing that I did learn from all of this is that when guest blogging you need to try to stay within your own genre. That sounds easy right? Now understand this, I write adult fiction...well erotica defines what I write better. It's so easy to find an erotic book, but not as easy to find a blog written by an erotica author. When I search for erotic guest blog requests, I find blogs that have erotic stories for each post. If I do a submission like that it could be great by getting people to like my writing style and get my blog a lot of followers. It could also be bad because some readers may come to my blog expecting to find more stories only to find me promoting my books which they have to buy, so they leave and never return. Oh well, it never hurts to try.

Anywhoo, I am working on Chapters 16 and 17 of What it Takes to Keep Her. How I got to working on two chapters at once is a long, crazy story. I also realized that when I was in that crazy pen name phase, I have stuff under Queen B as well as still under Queen Breean and Breean. Forgive me for that craziness. As of right now, I’m officially Queen B, but for those first two novellas, you may buy an Ebook with Breean on it, but it’s all the same. I’ll try to upload new covers, but until then it’s going to stay. Well readers, that's all for now.

Until next time...

Queen B.

Nothing but Great News!---5/7/2012---3:07 p.m.

What's up readers!

I am swamped, because, first of all, I only had like four hours of sleep. I had to wait until my mother finished cooking so I could wash dishes, so I didn't fall asleep until around two this morning. Then, I had to wake right back up at eight to get ready for graduation practice, but it's all gravy. Today was the first day I woke up and realized I didn't have school...well, I realized that yesterday night, because my sisters' children were turning in early. I even made the mistake of asking my oldest sister could I take her twelve year old daughter with me tomorrow morning, because a couple friends and I are getting our hair and nails done before graduation and I know my niece would love that since it would be her first time. Well, that's when she told me no because she had school and if we went on a weekend sometimes, then she could go. Honestly when my girls and I go out on the weekends, the last thing I want to think about is babysitting my twelve year old niece. If she wants me to bring her back something, that's no problem. So those were a couple of eye openers for me. Graduation is tomorrow and I can't wait. I bought me a new outfit, getting my hair and nails done, and then some friends and I are going on a triple date after. The only thing that would mess me up is bursting into tears in the middle of my Valedictorian address. I want to wait at least until I'm back seated before crying, but I am putting some tissue in my bra just in case.

So do you guys remember the computer my teacher was supposed to give me? Well, I got it today after graduation practice. I took it home and I couldn't get it to stay on. It starts up, but when you set it down, it shuts off completely. After trying it again, it doesn't come on at all anymore. I might attempt to look at it some more when I get home, but I really don't care at this point. Thankfully, I got my own computer a few days ago. I was in Wal-Mart with my mom the other day and she was looking at tvs. By the way, I don't know if I told you of not, but my mom's 42-inch stopped working one night it was storming. We thought lightening had struck it, but the outlet was still working. Strange, but turns out it's an internal problem and we're going to have to get it serviced. I have no idea where to get the thing serviced at, so my mother told me to buy another tv. I mean afterall, I'm going to have to get one anyway since I need one for my dorm. I was going to get a 32-inch even though my dorm is supper small, but my laptop screen looks bigger than a damn 19-inch. I hate 19-inches with a passion. So, the 32-inch that I was going to buy was like 300 and something dollars, plus tax it would be like 400 and something. That's when I got to that point where I had to make an educated decision. I was like, there's one Samsung laptop left and it's $478. Plus if I buy the thing tonight, it'll be paid off and I wouldn't have to worry about any monthly payments. I need a laptop not only to write, but for school in the fall. That 32-inch is not going to help me pass a class, so if I paid 400 and something for a flat screen I might as well come out of a few more dollars to get a laptop. I must say, that bitch is sexy. You have to excuse me because I don't refer to cars and electronics and cute or pretty, they are my biggest addiction (right under shoes) so I call them sexy. The picture quality on this thing is amazing, it shows just like the Samsung tv. My aunt has a Samsung LCD 50-inch and that's sexy too. The picture looks like real life, or sort of like the soap operas look. Anyways, like I was saying, I have a laptop now, even though I still don't have Internet, but I'll be moving out in a couple months so it really doesn't matter.

Anywhoo, I am looking for more ways to reach the public and get my name out. While doing some research, one thing stood out to me and that was guest blogging. Call me slow, but up until two weeks ago, I had never heard of this. Now that I know about it, I would be crazy not to try this, so that's going to be my goal for the next few weeks. All I have to do is find someone who will let me write on their blog. Sounds easy enough right...not. Hopefully, this will work out for the better and I will be letting you know what happens.

Until next time...
Queen B!

New Look---5/4/2012---12:14 p.m.

Hello Readers,

 First of all, for those of you who was looking at my blog a few minutes ago, I apologize for its crazy appearance. I got tired of starring at all that pink and decided to switch up my background a little bit. I know you were looking because I notice my page views going up, but it's done now and I love the black wayyyyy better than that bright pink. Anywhoo, when you browse around my blog you are going to notice some new features and gadgets, so please feel free to use them. One feature, in particular, that I hoped you noticed is that I have added an extra page to my blog. It will, hopefully, be the first of many extra pages to come. In the top, left hand corner there is a tab that is titled Books. It's pretty self-explanatory what you'll find when you click that tab, but I'mma tell you anyways. It features the book that I have completed, where you can pick up your very own copy, and the price. Now, drum roll please...I also have a works in progress heading in there and it not only tells the book's name, it also shows the cover of my book. With the cover photos, there are also back cover summaries. If you read my blog regularly, you've probably already read the description, but if for some reason, you missed those posts, you can check it out there. I didn't put my email address on there, because by now you all should know that you can reach me at and yes I do respond to each and every email that I get. The email is no secret and I didn't create it for nothing, so contact me for whatever and feel free to pass it on to a friend.

Umm, let's see...oh yeah, now I know what I was going to say. I finally uploaded all my epubs and I think I've even fixed a few errors in the first one. Can you believe I didn't procrastinate this time? Anyways, I uploaded them yesterday. It usually takes about two to three days for review and after that, you should be able to buy it. Like I said, Part 2 is out there on a different level, so, again, please email me at with all your feedback whether it be praises or criticism. I say email me, because the comment box on this blog is for your response to each blog post. On the other hand, I like to talk and I'm very opinionated, so don't be surprised if I copy and paste your message in one of my posts and discuss it. I don't reveal any names, just ideas, comments, and my honest opinions.

As for as my new book, I'm going to be honest with ya'll, I don't have an expected release date. In one of my last posts, I told you guys that I was shooting for Christmas...I think that's what I said. Well, I told you guys that when I was overwhelmed in research papers and big college exams. Some way, I found some extra time on my hands and I am up to Chapter 16 right now. Bad news is that the little net book that the school let me check out has to be return before I graduate, so that will be Monday. That means I can't write as much, when I want. Good news is my math teacher is giving me his old laptop, but he said it was like one of the first ones that was made and on top of that it was filled with viruses. Thankfully, his daughter completely wiped it clean, but that also means that all the downloaded programs like Microsoft, was wiped away with the viruses. I don't know how that's going to work. Then even if the computer does work properly, I may be gone for nine weeks for training, which means I have to postpone writing the last few chapters. With all that being said, I could be done way sooner than Christmas or way later...but hopefully sooner.

Just so you know, my book about the quickies with a spin, is still going to happen...eventually. The Boss Bitch Chronicles have really overwhelmed me. I told you guys before that I daydream a lot, well I already have three books in my head for this series and when I get them out, then I can really start on something new.

One last thing before I close, I am working on another huge project. It is so huge that I it is going slower than I hoped, but that's what happens when you have to rely on other people to get your work done. This could be a major movement or an epic failure if only I can get everybody to cooperate. I was just giving you a heads up even though I know you probably won't be hearing about this until about next year.

Until next time...

Queen B!

Moving On---5/03/2012---3:42 p.m.

Hello Readers,

This post is going to be very brief, because I am a little sad on right now. I literally just finished my last day at school. I could go tomorrow, but I'm done with all my work so I have nothing to do there and some of my classmates are skipping school and going out for the last time together. Of course, I could not past down that oppurtunity especially since that's not going to be counted against us. Anywhoo, I was amped all day and everything just hit me at the very last minute. My bestie and I were playing around with this boy in our class that we hang with a lot and we hugged. Well even though this group hug and fake crying was for show, it hit me so hard right then and there. I really am going to miss them clowns, because we have a lot of great memories together that I guess I wasn't so ready to let go of just yet. I've finally written my Valedictorian address, but I don't have a clue how I'm going to do this speech without crying on the mic. I've already told my class that I'mma act real stuck up on stage because I don't want them to say something and make me cry, but anytime after that, I'm all ears. As far as my book, I don't really have anything to say right now because my mind is kind of blown at this moment. I just needed to get that off of my chest, however I am going to try to upload all of my epubs when I log off. I know I've been promising them for months, but they will be up within the next couple of days so look for them on Amazon.

Until next time,

Queen B!


Hey Readers,

I am pleased to inform you that I have successfully created the cover for my second book. It took me a while to decide what direction I wanted to go. You know, do I want to do something different or do I want to keep my flames. Personally, I believe the flames match my fiery personality and it matches the personalities of my main characters, so I kept the flames. Hope you like it, if you don't too bad because the flames are staying around for this series of books. (Of course I have something different planned for the rest of the books in my head).

Graduation is approaching quickly and I only have a week left in school. All that work I was complaining about on one of my last post is almost finished, thank God! However, I still have a lot of papers to write so my time and energy is very limited. I used to look at my favorite authors and say, "Why the hell does it take you year or more to write one fucking book?!" Well, at that point, I didn't realize that authors have lives outside of writing. So if things keep going at the pace they are now, this book won't be released until Christmas. I will let you see the cover eventually. Hell I haven't even finished creating the epub for What it Took to Get Her Part 2 because I know a lot of people bought copies of part one and I'm not going to make you pay for both parts if you already have the first one.

By the way, I don't remember if I told you or not, but the second book in the Boss Bitch Chronicles is What it Takes to Keep Her. The story, of course, still revolves around Chelsea Rodriguez, Khloe Kai, and all the people that cross their paths. Well since I'm on the subject, I might as well attempt to give you a quick summary of what's going on with these two girls (I haven't pre-written anything so I'mma have to go off the dome lol).

When I last left off, Chelsea Jones had just become Chelsea Rodriguez and Khloe Shelton had just become Khloe Kai. Both of them where still just baby boss bitches. Now they are fresh out of college and in a confused stage where they don't want to accept their boss bitch status, or rather they can't accept it yet because of a few curve balls life has thrown their way that causes them to put business on hold in order to take care of home.

Chelsea and her husband, Rashad have been the ideal couple since high school. Since day one, everybody watched their love blossom and wished they could have at least a portion of what they have. Just when Chelsea thought things couldn't get any more perfect for, tragedy struck and caused her to question every aspect of their relationship. She does some things she's not proud of and brings them to the brink of divorce.

She is the first one in her family to graduate college, she has fifty girls under her command, and she owns a chain of stores and a chain of condo complexes. Khloe brings in millions every month, she married with kids, and she thinks she is living large. There's only one problem: she still hasn't been home to mama. After graduation, she finally decides to return home and finds herself in a shocking situation.

Will these girls learn to juggle their business and private lives and move on? Or will these boss bitches in the making lose control to the equally powerful men in their lives?

Okay now that if a rough draft of the back cover summary. That is what some of the book is about, just remember the summary is subject to change and I may put a completely different one on the back cover on the book depending on how I feel that day.

Anywhoo, I'm in the middle of Chapter 13 so let me go finish that and I hit ya'll later.

Until next time...

Queen B.
