VIP Reader Goodies: Free Serial Novella Coming Soon

Hey there lovelies!

Today I'm coming to you with an update on the Playing with Bad Boys series I've been working on this year.

First, the bad news: I'm delaying the launch of the series. I'd originally planned to release the first book later this month. The book is completed and beta reader-approved, but I've decided to complete all three books in the series before I release the first one. So the new publication date for Playing It Safe is my birthday, March 1, 2016.

Now for the good news. I couldn't leave you hanging for five months. So I'm writing a prequel novella to the series which will be available as a serial novella, beginning Friday, November 6th. The novella will be delivered each Friday to members of my VIP Reader mailing list for free! So if you're not already part of my VIP Reader family, be sure to put your name on the list here.

The novella will remain available in my VIP Reader Lounge, also launching November 6th, for two weeks after the final installment. Then the book will go on sale on Amazon on Friday, February 12th--Valentine's Day weekend. An appropriate time to launch a book where Valentine's Day plays a major role in getting my characters together.

I'm thrilled about this unexpected story and the opportunity to gift it to my VIP Readers. So excuse me while I break into my happy dance.

I've spent the past two weeks plotting and now writing the story of Hunter & Meredith. Unlike the rest of the series, which takes place in a fictional beach town called Pleasure Cove, this story takes place in London and gives us the backstory for the hero in Playing It Safe, Liam DeSeau. I'm a little in love with Hunter & Merrie's characters and Meredith's wild child cousin, who just might be paying a visit to Pleasure Cove.

Hope you'll join me in the VIP Readers Lounge. Meanwhile, may you have an awesome weekend worthy of your best happy dance.

You want Cheese with that Whine?

Hi, Kittens.

What? You're laughing at me and wondering why I misspelled "wine" in context with the "cheese?" I didn't make a mistake here. In case you haven't heard, author Adrienne Kama and I are putting on an in-person event in November in Williamsburg called "Kickin' It with Adrienne Kama and Bridget Midway." Registration is open now. The registration fee is $45 until September 19th. After that, it'll go up to $55.

So we advertised that the event will be on Saturday, November 7th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guess what? We're adding an additional event on the Friday night before the event we're called "Whine and Cheese", because when you're getting your ass spanked, there's always a little bit of whining and crying.

The Friday night event is from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. It is not free and open to the public. You do have to register for the event and pay. Registrants will be able to get up close and personal with adult toys commonly used in BDSM play. They'll also mix and mingle with people in the Lifestyle and can ask them questions. So if you've already registered, do you have to pay an additional amount for this extra Friday night event? Nope! Adrienne and I love our readers. We want to give you the best event possible.

In order for us to do that, I need to get off here and get some writing done.

Stay sexy,

#ThisTenderMelody- Coming Soon!

Hey, Y'all!

So this isn't my normal blog day, but here I am. There are two reasons for me going off schedule:

1. Our dear Loretta Walls (who normally blogs first Fridays) has moved on from Hot MAMA Land to focus on other ventures. We will miss her so much, and will continue to support her in whatever she chooses to do next. We love you, Loretta!

2. I have an upcoming release AND an in-person event to tell you about.

Saturday, October 3, 2015, I'll be having my FIRST EVER live, in person release party, to celebrate the release of my debut Kimani Romance title, THIS TENDER MELODY. You have pre-ordered it, right? I mean it will be out in less than two weeks in print. You can click here to grab your copy, if you haven't already.

 This is actually my 25th book, and I'm so excited to be having a celebratory event for it. What's more, the event will take place at the Blue Restaurant and Bar, which inspired the Blue Lounge- the venue where my jazz quartet, the Queen City Gents, plays a weekly gig. Pretty cool, right?

Tickets are only $35 and will include an autographed book, a goody bag, a full sit down dinner, and an awesome live jazz performance by the Presley Group. That's a lot for $35, y'all. Click here to grab your ticket, and I suggest doing it soon. Only 40 people can attend due to the size of the venue, and you don't want to miss out!

I really hope to see you there! This is the progression of events that I deem ideal. 

You purchase THIS TENDER MELODY, in your preferred reading format, and begin to read like this:

Then, you finish it, and are so satisfied with how wonderful it was, you can't wait to tell others.

SO enamored with the story, you realize you simply MUST be in attendance at the release party, so you purchase your ticket and make arrangements.

You journey to Charlotte, ready to have an awesome night with me and other readers who loved the book. And above all, you remember this:

LOL! Ya'll know I'm just being silly. Seriously though, click here and cop those tickets. It's going to be a fun night!

Until Next Time,
