Some Books To Read

Sometimes you have to put down the pen and actually take the time to open up a book. Many writers will do this from time to time especially when they are experiencing extreme writers block. So that is what I have done. I have put down my pen and decided that once again I need to read a few things. Maybe in reading I can get my characters talking to me again. The problem that I am now facing is that some of the books that I am reading are not books that I would normally recommend.
Series Books
I am one of those that enjoy reading a series of books.  Whether they are about a group of people or they are about a certain couple. So when I was browsing online I was introduced to one series by Mimi Strong. I know there are plenty of people who will read this series and fall in love with the wit and charm of the lovely if not chubby bookstore clerk. Unfortunately I am still stuck on the first book and can't seem to make it past anything. I am all for women's empowerment. I believe that all women are beautiful in their own way so this should in no way seem like that is an issue I have.
Ms. Strong's writing is witty but it is also a little too drawn out. The under confidence of the main character Peaches is touching but confusing when she is also extremely confident in her own skin. The fact that this a grown woman who is making puns like letting her "peaches" out. Though it could be seen a playful after trying to drag myself through the first book I am once again reminded that sometimes a character is just a character. There's something to be said about a strong woman but something to be said also about your leading man and in this case he is not a leading man. More of a boy who is playing in his fathers shoes. Again I am sure that as the series goes on it's one that will get better but as long as the first book is going it's not a keeper.
You want a good book series to read? Something that can make you giggle and make you feel the passion come alive? Well take a look at the Billionaires Boys Club by Jessica Clare or The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover, This is one of my favorite series so far. Below is where this series begins. I'll be posting more as we continue. And I'll be giving some sneak peaks of the next book I'm working on.

Writers Block

Everyone tends to have that one moment in their life that their brain just freezes up. Right now I've got that. My main issue is that one of my characters keeps getting killed off and I'm not ready for it. So now I'm stuck once again with this story in my head and no where to go with it. I guess I should just bite the bullet and let the character die but then its the question of which way do I want to give them the ax. On one hand I can kill him off in a gun fight and on the other there is the haunted house. But then again there is the street fight and his head gets ripped off. See? this is my problem, I have so many different ways for the guy to die and yet I'm just not ready.
Of course then we have the other story. Stacy and Christy are both ready to give birth, the MC is being turned upside down because of Danny and Stacy's dad. Then of course theres the mole in the club is willing to sell them all out to a rival with Stacy being the price. The other club doesn't seem to care that Stacy is pregnant much less branded to her brothers Vp.  So David and Danny have charged Tommy with taking out the threat to the MC's princess and are calling in a favor from an old 'flyby'. "Branded by Convince" should be out soon and hopefully Tommy can make everything right well at least as right as it can be in the MC.
Branded by Love is out and available to purchase on for $1.99 soon it will available for purchase in paper back with

Get a free copy of Branded- David and Stacey with coupon code XL33X from link is below. I am finishing up on their book and want everyone to see how they got started. Things don't always go easy for the guys of the MC.

The drawing was a success. I am so happy with the turn out though I can not wait for more. Their autographed copies are on the way. I am sorry that it has taken some time things in my world have been a bit hectic and something got pushed to the back for just a bit. I want all my fans to know just how much I appreciate them. I am hoping to continue to build my fan base. So here's what's coming up next. After David and Stacey's book I am going to visit with the boys of the MC. Since I haven't actually gotten the name I'm good with just the MC this way I don't step on any toes. Tommy's story is coming up next and I think you'll be surprised at who he finds himself linked to. His story is Branded by Convenience. You will still see David and Stacey and Danny and Christy but Tommy will be going on a  trip to keep his secrets hidden. 

Over at Amity House, The Night Ward is being torn in half by an up coming challenge and secrets that have been hidden for centuries start to come to light. Nurse Amy must make a choice will she choose love or destruction.

Love and Kisses

Getting Ready for the Drawing/Book News

Well helloo all my fans and friends. I've been working hard on two different books and needed to take a quick break. Well actually I'm working on two books and one beginning short story. (I think) I just wanted to pause for a moment and tell you what's new here in Nicole's World. My two Branded tales are now in one book and being sold on The paper back copy featuring the beginning two stories is $8.00 currently. I will be holding a sale pretty soon to raise awareness.
My first book drawing is coming up in less then a week on Facebook at my fan page if you want to be entered into the drawing for a free autographed copy of my very first book Night Ward then go to the link and like the page. Once you like the page you will be entered. The drawing will take place on Friday, August 17th. I will of course either post a picture or video of the drawing to so that all fans know it was done fairly. I invite any and everyone to participate and hope to have some more special giveaways in the days to come. I'm really excited.
A quick in on what I'm working on. I have a third part to the Night Ward series and I had to put it off for a bit but now I am back working with Amy, Drake and the whole Night Ward vampires. I'm tying up some loose ends before I end the world. I am also hard at work on the rest of Stacey and David's story in Branded by Love. We met them in the second Branded short story and I felt that there was a lot more to tell so they will be the main focus and you will be seen Danny and Christy as well.
The third short is a stand alone as of right now about two people from very different ends of the class spectrum. Both are business with their families but one likes to get dirty while the other rather sit in the office all day making deals. They are brought together by fate and a meddling grandfather. (Working on a title)
I'm also going back to an old idea I had and seeing if the the characters are still hanging together or not. We'll see what that one comes out but for the most part I am trying to get some books finished up. Hopefully we'll be seeing so more action. Alright break time is over. TTYL. Kisses

The new book covers/Facebook Contest

 Writing has always been my passion, what's great is that I get to share my passion with the world. My Branded Series has actually had a really good reception. I had to go and choose a new cover image so that it would work better for the formatting on the book. After redoing the cover I decided that I wanted people to know who's story they were starting with. So Danny & Christy got their own cover. Since the next story in the Branded series is about Stacey, Danny's sister and Christy's best friend.
Since the second story is basically an introductory to both Stacey and David, Danny's best friend, I made this a short story since the will be more to their story. This was also named Branded but I made the distinction with David & Stacey. I have recently been asked if I am proud of my work. Well of course, I've had a blast working with my characters and I always get involved in their stories.  Since both of these stories are the beginning of the series I have also had the chance to turn them into one book. So I am introducing for the very first time Branded in paper back. This book will contain both stories so that you can see where it all began. You can purchase it from I am also doing a give away on Facebook. For all those that like my author page by August 16 will be entered into a drawing on the 17th. I'm trying to get the word out. The winner of that Drawing will receive a free autographed copy of the very book that I ever put out. Night Ward: Welcome To Amity House. And one lucky winner will even get a special gift. So there it is today on the whole book front. My excitement on my books.

Answering Some Questions

I have been emailed some random questions through different sites and I always encourage fans to email me. Wow, I've got fans. Real life fans...
Ok the moment of awe is over not back to the blog. So I've decided to answer those questions tonight as I take a quick break from my writing. 
Is the Branded book your first sex scene?
Actually no, I wrote my first sex scene in another book entirely but I never published it and blushed during the whole thing so had decided that I couldn't write them. Then as I wrote Christy and Danny's story I found that was a little less blushy during the whole writing process.
What was the first story you've ever written?
I've actually written many stories so my very first one is hard to pinpoint. But one of the very first things that I wrote with the idea of being a book was set in the country side and involved a betrothed couple who meet up by accident after years of being separated
Where do you get your ideas?
From different sources the Night Ward series (that I am still working on) came to me one night while I was listening to Sober by Pink. I was going through a bit of a dark period in my mind and that song mixed with other thoughts brought on the idea of the Amity House facility.  Let's see, then the Branded series came to me from watching Son's of Anarchy. Something about sexy bikers but then I didn't want anything really like that so I focused more on the female side and with my love of tattoos....

Well that's it for that tonight. If you have a question you want to ask please feel free to email me at I will answer anything you ask until next time Happy Reading

Book updates

Well Thank you Smashwords and Lulu. Branded is doing pretty well so far and I am into the next chapter of the Branded series which involves Stacey and David. Like I promised Danny and Christy are also featured in this book and hopefully we will see more of the club I'm also hoping to introduce and actual name, but let's just say that 3 chapters into the new story I'm still working on it. I just wanted to give a heads up. Right now at Branded is being offered at a discount price for the month of July so you better get your copy so that you can follow all the fun. Also my two books from that Amity House series are on discount.
Branded Book 2
Well getting into the new book it's looking like it may be just a few words longer. So far we have two major issues in the way of Stacey and David. First there's David's ex Karen, who we met in book 1 then there is some family issue's going on with Stacey and Danny's father and his grand plans to try and regain control of the club.
I can't wait to see where their story goes and to see if everything will work out for them and Danny and Christy.
