And So She Waited Excerpt Reveal

EXCERPT REVEAL & SALE
TITLE: AND SO SHE WAITED
AUTHOR: Shakuita Johnson
SYNOPSIS:
**Mature audiences only 18+…contains darker elements and no
HEAs**
This is not a story about love, but a story about how love can
consume you. Heart, body, and soul. A story of loving someone so much that the
love you feel harms you.
Have you ever loved someone so much, that before you realized
it, they owned half of your soul?
Raven Sinclair’s first love had always been ballet until she met
Remy Peters. She fell hard and she fell fast and never looked back. He was
everything she always believed she wanted but he had other plans.
Remy Peters didn’t believe in love and he wasn’t looking for it.
He just wanted to have a good time in between classes and swim team. He’s been
seeing Raven for over a year and a half and he’s not sure how it’s lasted this
long. It’s not like he’s made any commitments but when he stumbles on the
prettiest girl he’s ever seen, he knows it’s time to let Raven go.
Matthew Masterson has loved Raven since he first saw her in
ballet class when they were five. They have been best friends ever since and
he’s not content to stay there. He sees Remy for who he really is and wastes no
time in telling Raven every chance he gets but is Raven his happy ever after or
does fate have other plans?
Love, lies, and obsession…three lives bound by twisted desires
for what they can’t have.
EXCERPT:
Remy Peters felt her arms wrap tightly around him, and a playful
nip on his shoulder. He smiled to himself but made no indication that he was
awake. A cute little growl sounded behind him and he could no longer hold in
his laughter.
“You think you’re so cute, dontcha, Remy
Peters?” Casey Summers scolded.
Casey was a gorgeous little blonde with bright
blue-green eyes. She was petite and extremely laid back. She knew what the
score was and didn’t mind Remy being himself. She also didn’t try to make him
do any more than he wanted to. She never asked him to commit, and didn’t hound
him. Just the way he liked it.
His laughing ended when he heard his phone
chirp from the nightstand. That sobered him right up. Raven. It couldn’t
have been anyone but her. It had always been her, for the last year and
a half now. He sighed and snatched the phone. He didn’t know what her deal was.
They just hung out from time to time. Nothing more. At least he hadn’t led her
to believe that there was anything more than when he had time to stop by.
Morning babe. Have a great day! XOXO Miss you…
“Let me guess. It’s Raven,” Casey said.
“Why don’t you just tell her the truth?”
“There’s nothing to tell. She’s not my
girlfriend,” Remy said.
“It’s been a year and a half. Either just
be with her or let her go. Stop jerking her chain.”
“Oh, you’re concerned now? Doesn’t stop
you from coming over, so mind your own business.”
“Whatever, I’m going to shower.
Asshole.”
Remy didn’t need a damn lecture. He hadn’t
made any commitments. He was a free bird.
Ding.
He picked up the phone again to read the
message.
Hey babe…you awake yet?
Well, if he hadn’t texted her back the first
time, what the hell did she think? He placed the phone back on the dresser and
decided to catch a shower with Casey. The phone started ringing on his way in
but he ignored it. It was just Raven, and he didn’t feel like talking right
now. He had other plans and they involved Casey, naked.
***
Remy emerged from the bathroom fully dressed,
in a comfortable pair of faded blue jeans and a cool graphic tee. Casey had
rushed out of his apartment with the promise to call later, but it didn’t
matter if she did or didn’t. That was the great thing about no expectations and
no commitments.
Remy picked up his phone and noticed a
voicemail from Raven. He would see her at school no doubt, so he didn’t bother
calling or texting back. He was sure she would be sending another message
shortly anyway. If he didn’t have the occasional feelings for her, he would
have ended it months ago. She was getting way too clingy. He honestly didn’t
know why he hadn’t stopped talking to her yet.
He checked his watch and realized he had
lingered too long. Damn. Late again. He was glad that he had no classes with
Raven this year. He liked to keep their contact to weekends, preferably when no
one knew. There was no way he’d ever take her out during the day, let alone at
night. Sometimes she’d approach him when he was with his friends, and that
would really set him off. He wasn’t ashamed of her but he didn’t want people
thinking they were serious. Nor did he want to be leashed and collared. He was
a free bird, and Raven was too clingy. She hadn’t started off that way, but she
definitely was now.
“I’ve got to stop this before it blows
way out of control,” Remy said out loud.
Problem was, he had no idea how to get out of
the mess it took him a year and a half to get into. He would have to ask his
buddies what they thought he should do.
As Remy locked his apartment door and headed
to his car, his phone went off again.
Ding.
Please call me. I’m starting to worry. You
never came over last night, plus we need to talk.
Remy grimaced. What had he gotten himself into with this girl?
It never got to this point with anyone else. Did she not know how to keep
things causal and fun? He did not want a girlfriend, ever. He’d never had one
and he didn’t plan on having one any time soon. He was only a sophomore in
college, for god’s sake. He had years ahead of him before he was ready to
settle down with one girl. Only until grad school would he even consider
getting serious with someone. The two of them were just going to have to sit
down and have a long talk. She would either get on board or find someone else
to obsess over. It could not be him.

Is It Fall Yet?

Yes I know we had a crappy winter last year but please for the love of all that’s holy I’m ready for this summer to be done! Finished…put out of it’s misery! I need the fall back and fast! Although I’ve kept myself busy with my fun Kiss and Tell: Encounters of a Prostitute serial, I’m still ready for school to start back and the leaves to change colors…Change. That’s what I need right now. A freaking change! I’ve managed to screw up my knee even more than it was screwed up before and I’ve not done nearly enough of what I wanted to do this summer. But I didn’t get to see family twice in the span of two weeks and my cousin got married…so yay! Another cousin graduated high school. So those were good things! I ended up with a wicked sinus infection that lasted 3 weeks and I thought I was dying. Now I’m just trying to make it the almost 7 weeks left before the next college school year starts…pep talk every day for $200 Alex! That’s how I feel right now…but I have decided to take control of my publishing hat…I’ve started a two year plan for my books and also hope to get a small 2-3 author publishing company up and off the ground by the start of the new year. I have book ideas coming out of every place imaginable so that’s always a plus but I miss school. I’m excited to start the mental health counseling part of my dual program and I can’t wait to get back to the psychology field…I have been writing though!

So tell me…how is your summer going? Loving it? Hate it? Wish it was over? Let me know in the comments and we can be miserable together :) Anyone going to the Boston Comic Con this year?

How to Plan your Publishing Business

Before you explore author-publishing possibilities in this series, lets first have a look at your business plans as an author and the most important question: Why are you writing?  Are you creating for yourself (as a hobby, just for the fun of writing) – or for an audience?
.

Can you answer these questions: how many books with the same topic / the same genre are on the market? What is the sales ranking of these works? How are these books priced? What is the social media ranking of the most successful writers in this genre? Where are these books sold on- and off-line? The advise you read here is based on the assumption that you want to entertain, inform, increase your audience and eventually earn some money with your writing.

If you’re producing work for an audience, it means:

How to Start Your Own Book Publishing Business

Where to find all these publishing business information – including lots of links:

95% of all authors have to do the marketing for their books – even if they are the “lucky” ones who found a major, traditional publisher. Only celebrities and star-authors, such as James Patterson or Danielle Steel get publicity from their publishers.  The question for authors is now: Why should they sell their manuscripts for a pittance to publishing houses at all, if these publishers are sending out a mass-press-release only and are otherwise not involved in the marketing part? What are they good for?

.
Authors are smart and able to start their own publishing business, REAL publishing, not POD and not Vanity Publishing: Finding and getting quotes or referrals for an editor, a book lay-out company or book designer, cover artist, e-book formatting company and a printer is not difficult.
