Back online after two months offline PLUS I penned some ugly first drafts!

Some people swear that they can’t live without their tablets/laptops/computers but when you’re forced to do just that, life has a funny way of going on anyway. My tablet died in June. And affording a new one was a bit of a challenge so I had to wait. 

Life, however, roped me in and dragged me down into a whirlpool but things managed to work out and I’m here. Still standing and, hopefully, a bit wiser. While all that was going on, I rediscovered the “old school” way of writing. That was how I used to do it and I have to say it felt like I was going back to my roots.

It. Felt. Great.

I was a lot less judgemental and the idea flowed so much better. I enjoyed writing these stories and the process in general. Of course, it’s a bit more work because I have to now transcribe what I’ve written but I’m good with it.

So, in my offline time, I wrote out Fortune’s Smile and Fashion House,
two standalone stories, plus I outlined a story for a new series I hope to release 2017/8. 

Plus, I’m planning to release something special for the Baxter Family Saga before I get Baxter 4 ready (😩 yes, yes, I know. There wasn’t supposed to be a Baxter 4 but Quinn made a liar out of me. More about that later)

So, as I play a monster game of Catch Up as well as some other pressing personal business, I will be trying to get my self-publishing ducks back in a row. 

I will keep you all posted.

About A~P

Palessa started reading her first romance novel, at the age of 11. Then she got introduced to V.C. Andrews, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Anne Rice and many more notable contemporary authors as well as some of the classics, A Tale of Two Cities, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Great Gatsby and others. It was during her teenage years that she dabbled in writing. First, it was in her diaries, then she started creating characters, stories about romance, the supernatural and much more. Being an International Baccalaureate student as well as entering college, left little time for writing and so she put it and the ideas aside to pursue a career. It would take almost 20 years, a radical move from the city she grew up in, Miami, FL back to her Caribbean birthplace, and a chance Facebook meeting with Sable Hunter to start the juices flowing again. After some fits and starts, the Baxter Family Saga was born. Unchained Hearts is Palessa's first published fiction book with Beau Coup Publishing. She considers herself just a storyteller that sees no reason to shy away from the juicier romantic elements. She currently lives in the mountains of Jamaica with her crazy, cracker-munching-mutt Ivy and a farm, primarily managed by agribusiness partner, also known as Dad.
