Black Rayne Silent Screams by Yvonne Nicolas

14 Sep

Let’s see. Where do I start?

I remember the day I sat down at the computer and started writing. It was right after I finished a book from Zane. God, I love her writing. You could say she was my inspiration. In the back of my mind, I had always wondered if I could write an erotic novel, but was content with just reading them. My mother, also an avid reader, coaxed me to give it a try.

So, five years later, I finally did!

The first novel I banged out was titled, “The Shade of Lust.” Since mentioning it, I glanced at it for a good laugh. It’s in pretty rough shape, but it’s still sexy as all get down. One of these days, I may go back to it, dust it off and put out there for the readers to see, but for now, I’ll leave it locked up in the vault.

After I realized I could actually write a book, I wrote, Designing Love. I got the idea for this novel while working as an Architectural Designer for a small firm in Florida. The storyline for this one came easy to me and the love scenes came even easier.

The hero in the story, Devon, has the attitude many architects have to this day. Arrogance, yet brilliant. Josephine, on the other hand, shares his brilliance, but is humble about her work, which mirrors the personality of a friend of mine who is a fabulous interior designer. Love you, Michelle!

In my head, their love affair started out as a sweet romance. By the time it streamed from my brain to my fingers, it became a hot, steamy bowl of lust. LOL! Hey, what can I say? That’s where my muse takes me. I appreciate and love all of the emails I’ve received from readers expressing their enjoyment of my writing. And to answer the question that many have asked, yes, I am writing a sequel to Designing Love.

As long as God spares me with life and health, I’ll continue to wow the readers with my off the wall tales.

Black Rayne Silent Screams was a novel I’d wanted to write for some years, but was too chicken to do it since the very idea of it was pushing boundaries and breaking rules. It played over and over again in my mind as a dark journey where there are many obstacles and unrestrained sexual desire along the way. After being persuaded by a few friends, I typed my thoughts out and the edgy urban fantasy was born.

The idea to put a 17th century nobleman with a 21st century hip-hop diva seemed farfetched at first thought, but I somehow made it work. Though they are total opposites in every way, shape and form, they are drawn together by the sheer fabric of dark passion and the duty to protect a world that has no knowledge of the impending doom that’s about to fall upon them.

The next book in the series is Black Rayne Scarlet Moon. Like Silent Screams, this story is filled with lust, action and death, but of course, I had to push the boundaries ju-u-ust a little further. *snicker*

You can find both novels and Red Rose Publishing.

What are these green things?

10 May

I remember a time when it thrilled me to no end, that my children ate vegetables and would actually ask for more. Then I discovered that I could write novels. Fast forward three years, two point five books, later and this is a conversation I had with my child.

Child: Mom, there’s something in this, its green.

Mom: I put green beans in it.

Child: I think its mold.

Mom: It’s not mold its green beans.

Child: I tasted it, its mold.

Mom: How would you know what mold tasted like?

Child: Are your really asking that? No offense but you aren’t the greatest cook in the world.

Mom: I would never make you mold.

Child: God has that part taken care of. What are these green things again?

Mom: THEY ARE GREEN BEANS!!!

Child: They need salt.

There really are no words to discuss how sad this makes me that my teenage child had no idea what green beans were.  Or that my food has taught her what mold taste like. I’m going grocery shopping tomorrow and buying nothing but vegetables!!

And coffee

Oh and well I need starbucks doubleshots

Oh and stuff for the kids to eat… oh wait I’m getting vegetables.

Shopping list:
