So, there you go on the Official Announcement!

Now, if you’ve been following me on Social Media in 2018, you know that each week I have a theme I chat about on my social media channels. Every few weeks, I focus on one of my books and we have now made it through the Ariya Adams Trilogy to Book 3, Sacrificed! For those of you who have been with me since the beginning of my writing journey, with my first novel Protected (Book 1 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy), you waited a looonnnggg time for Sacrificed to come out! Hopefully it was worth the wait, and you’ve had a chance to read it! It’s available on Amazon in e-book, paperback AND it’s part of the Kindle Unlimited Program! (Find it here!!)

Sacrificed Paperback FINAL Cover

As I have mentioned in other topics and posts, a LOT happened to me personally in between the release of Awakened and the release of Sacrificed. Not just that, but the style and way I approached Sacrificed was completely different from both Protected and Awakened. For the first two books in the trilogy, I sat down and wrote them from start to finish … no outline, no set plan, nothing!! With Sacrificed, I had the beginning written, and I had the end written. The problem was working backwards and figuring out the middle. I did not like writing that way! Haha. It was something I  learned about myself during the hiatus and my writing journey — I work much better going from beginning to end!!

But, it all worked out in the end because Sacrificed is out and the Ariya Adams Trilogy is complete. Have you had a chance to read it yet? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear from you!!

Stay tuned this week as I’ll share more behind the scenes information on the third and final book in the Ariya Adams Trilogy. And pay close attention to my Facebook & Instagram pages on Wednesday for a giveaway announcement & opportunity!

Have a great week!!
