Synopsis

ALMOST HUMAN – The Third Trilogy
Novella #1 UNITING VAMPIRES (Vampiress Reigning – Part 1)
Fulfilling her destiny as the divinely appointed queen of the vampires is turning out to be a lot more work than Alyson had in mind…
She’s finally gotten her blood lust under control (mostly), talked her vampiress friend Sindy into behaving herself (mostly) and has managed to loosen up her husband just enough to let her have some fun, but being the all-powerful leader of the vampires is a position of politics with little room for playtime. Of course, Allie was never one to follow all the rules.
Visiting her human friends Ben and Felicity makes a nice excuse to shirk her responsibilities now and then, and if she doesn’t pull her mentor Cain out of his sulking, heartbroken shell, who will? The perks of being queen are pretty cool, but a free spirited vampiress with powers beyond belief and an itch… Continue reading

Undeniable Lover by Rosalie Redd is a fantastic enemies to lovers story. Rosalie Redd always writes fantastic heroes that I can connect to.

Saar, the heroes struggle with his desire for Kaelyn and his loyalty to Noeh, his leader was such a realistic and powerful struggle.

Though the fourth in the series, I felt like I was able to connect to this world and look forward to reading the others in the series. Definitely another 5 star read from Rosalie!

How I Came About Writing and My Writing Journey

Back in the tenth which was the year of 2014, I always enjoyed writing stories when our teacher gave us that particular assignment. I always came up with something new and exciting, if it’s not about wives killing their cheating husbands or maids having sex with their boss (those I kept to myself) it was either girls going to party and having fun. I always loved to write, it was an absolute passion of mine and when a friend of mine suggested I check out Wattpad, I decided that I should join it. When I first join, it was purely reading even though I had stories floating around in my head which I thought was never good enough. I continued to read until one day I finally gave myself a stern pep talk. I remember the words like it was yesterday “If this is something you love, just go for it.” So, after giving myself that pep talk, I finally decided that I was going to write my first amateur novel, “The Billionaire’s Proposal.” It’s a novel about two singles Nyla and Kyle who had a one-night stand and then decides they should start a relationship that later came to be a whole lot of mess. It was a novel that was properly written but I loved dearly and even though it wasn’t getting enough views, I still decided that I should continue to write it. It had eventually started to get popular, but the popularity wasn’t what motivated me, it was the fact that I was doing something that I love and what others love as well. Even though I had bad critics, and when I say bad I mean really bad like jumping off a cliff bad. I wanted to give up and throw in the towel, because this was a story that had come to mind and I thought that everybody will love it but oh my was I sadly mistaken. My loyal readers gave me some advice, and I took it and gobbled it up and after two days of feeling sorry for myself and being ‘depressed,’ I finally put on back my big girl panties and started writing again.

How and when my writing journey took off?

Back in early 2016, I was speaking to a Jamaican author and I was explaining to him that being published was something that I really wanted, it was something that I had dreamed of. This particular author was and is still very popular, he was the first author who had inspired me to write. I had asked him for advice and he told me everything I should know and I followed them thoroughly. From there and then I published my first novel in August. It was slow at first seeing that I was a new author and I didn’t have much experience, I tried to do what other authors were doing and nothing seem to work. For months things were slow and I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to. Eventually, I began to promote my book, I reached out about 50 or more reviewers with only about 10 responded back to me. It was rough but at the end of the day, I wasn’t giving up and I continued to push and push until sales picked up, it still wasn’t much but it was better. I am still trying, still fighting and pushing myself to reach my full potential when it comes on to writing because I want to be the best that I can be, set goals and smash the hell out of them.

This was another one of Jeff Fuell’s amazing books. I have read and reviewed The Goatman and The Empath, The Warrior & The Wind Rider and this one is just a mind blowing as they are.
