Played the right way - social media can help you THRIVE!
There are always people who will question what we do, there are people who won’t believe in what we do. There are even people who will try to knock us down. But there are even more people out there who are JUST LIKE US!
People who want similar things. Who have similar personalities. Who will “get” our jokes and our struggles. Those people are our tribe. THOSE are the people you will attract if you are REAL and GENUINE and just trust your gut enough to be BOLD and BE YOU!
Those people will follow you, like your posts, dream big with you, help you grow, stretch your perseverance and make life BEAUTIFUL!! They “get” you! And THAT’S all that matters!
Your honestly and your story will be a gift to THOSE people. And their honesty and their stories will be a gift to you.
You’ll find fulfillment when you jive with your tribe. Because where passionate people gather, big things happen.
Make big things happen!
Let's all hang with the royals and wear crazy hats!
Ruby from BETWEEN a ROCK and a ROYAL would be more likely to wear a headscarf while she's cruising down the highway in her convertible, but her guy, Leo, comes from a long line of royal hat-wearers ;-) http://sylviestewartauthor.com/between-a-rock

SMOKE AND MIRRORS part two in Scott and Tori’s epic love story is coming August 24th!
It’s a fight to love each other, but it’s a love worth fighting for.
Tori’s life had been defined by loss. The loss of her father. The loss of her innocence. And finally, the loss of her vision.
She prides herself on always rising above anything life throws at her, but losing the man she loves would ruin her.
Tori has always ferociously guarded her fragile heart, but she’s trying hard to let Scott inside her fortress. As her walls begin to crumble the shadows of her past begin to haunt her. Can she trust that Scott will still love her once he sees what lies within?
Tori longs to escape from the pain of her past and reclaim the art that is screaming inside her soul. But is her artistic career yet another loss she'll never regain?
While Tori wrestles with her inner demons, Scott wages a war against his controlling nature; confronting his own fear of loss.
Scott wants Tori to promise her life to him. The problem is Tori’s unpredictable. Some days she’s a hurricane and other days she’s a light breeze. He walks a tightrope between protecting her and letting go, struggling to gain trust of her tattered heart.
Smoke and Mirrors is part two in Scott and Tori’s epic love story. You can read part one of Scott and Tori’s story in Chasing Fire. Both novels are full length books featuring a hot-as-hell alpha and a sexy artist who both have filthy mouths. Intended for a mature audience.

Two more days for Book 1 of The Virgin Diaries!
I have a confession to make. I hate my math professor, Connor Daniels.
From the moment he walked into class, he’s been a thorn in my side, nitpicking every little thing that I do. It burns me how he expects me to be just as perfect as he is. I get that professors are supposed to challenge their students, but he’s such a . . .
He’s a dick.
Cocky. Big-headed. Egotistical.
So why can’t I stop fantasizing about him? Standing up there in his tight jeans, his bulge practically flaunted in my face. I picture the victorious way he’d smirk as he bent me over his desk, flipping my skirt up and taking me. Like it was inevitable.
But here's the thing . . .
I don't want him to just take my body, or my virginity.
I want him to teach me . . . everything.
❤ MEET THE CHARACTERS ❤
Dean Donahue (Unbowed #1 and #2 ) is a thirty-year-old entrepreneur who helps run his family's real estate and luxury hotel empire. A certified workaholic, he prefers things to be neat and orderly, and makes schedules for his schedules.
He is also a paying client at fetish club Elysium, which he frequents when he can as a Dom. Order, routine, dominance, and control are his kinks, along with tightly laced corsets and inflicting just the right amount of pain. He knows exactly what he needs from a submissive -- which can be too intense for some.
Dean is the middle child who grew up wanting to keep the peace in his elitist household. He tends to put others first, and his upcoming two-month vacation with escort Belle Bennet is the first he has taken in nearly seven years. His resort staff would call him intense but caring, highly focused and a perfectionist, but also open to innovation and an all around great boss.
I can't wait for you guys to meet Dean and his newly hired submissive Belle SOON in the first of the Unbowed standalone duets. 💖

One of the nice things about being single is getting to focus on your passion without the distraction of a partner. I've got so much I want to accomplish as an author in the next four months. I gave myself a deadline and I'm sticking to it. First book out...so many more gems to pull from the vault. #amwriting#romanceauthor#awriterslife#purposedrivenlife#relationshipgoals
He was a strict and demanding college professor turned professional director who excelled at giving acting lessons. She was his shy and uncertain former student who became a professional actress under his tutelage. They fell in love, married, and won two Tony Awards before tragedy struck and a simple kiss ripped them apart.
Six months later, Peter Thorton decides to take matters into his own hands by making his famous wife, Kate, an offer he knew she wouldn't refuse. Plainly put, he wants her back and he intends to do whatever is necessary to achieve his goal, even if it means giving his stubborn, willful, leading lady a daily reminder over his knee that she had promised to obey him.
Loosely based on Kiss Me Kate, Acting Lessons is an on-stage spanking romance. Available on Amazon and Blushing Books.

Today’s office view. Feeling a little under the weather, so I’m working from my bed. That’s one of the things I’m most grateful for with this career—being able to shift my work around the needs of my family and myself. .
Also, I’m so in love with this wall tapestry. Probably my favorite thing in my room. Tangled-inspired art. #amwriting#authorlife

Our society is so caught up in the physical aspect of beauty that too many people forget the inner work. What good is it to be stunning, but evil or dumb as a box of rocks?
Have you ever met someone who was beautiful until they open their mouths?
