Who's Got Skills the Sequel

I am working on the sequel to Who’s Got Skills and after being told off because I ended the story with a “To be Continued” and being threatened. I often get these questions
Is Shy alive? What’s up with Ray? I can't stand Chin. and When is the sequel coming out?

I wanted to give you an opportunity to sound off about the book. Aside from the fact the editing was not done well as I thought. It sucks because I spent a pretty penny but its a lesson learned. I promise to do better the second time around. Actually, I am working on the second edition with the edits as we speak.

Overall the feedback has been great about the book and the Motorcycle Community, NY, DMV, the military and many others has shown me great love and support. I really appreciate it. I have to mention the Karamel Divaz MC by name as they really helped me get out of the gate. I can't thank them enough.

What I have learned is after reading through different articles and blogs some thought of sequels are the first one is always better. My theory is “Go hard or Go home”

Giving you another book is not what is important. Giving you the personality of each character you have taken personally is my fire when I get overwhelmed. I have been asked if I am TC.

The answer is sometimes. I did describe my physical attributes similar to hers and I am sarcastic all day, ask one of my ex boyfriend's. But I am also Ray too and Shy. None of the story is true although Chin is someone who I knew but did not do the things in the book. His personality was so intriguing I created the character Chin around him. Smoke if you remember too is someone who was close too me.. I wish he still was but that's another story let me get focused.

As I work through the sequel I want to give some of you an opportunity to title the sequel. The easiest title would be the obvious Who’s Got Skills II.

Other thoughts for a title is Patience is Dead, The Rebirth of TC, Sweet Oblivion, Inviting Oblivion, Oil and Sugar, Truthful Liar, Skillful Liar. I could use some suggestions.

Let me have your thoughts. As I work through the sequel maybe I will add what you think should happen in the book. I am busy writing in my trusty beat up note book, on the back of flyer's and anywhere the mood hits and I have time.

Keep your fingers crossed I get this out over the summer

No, I am not desperate. It's a Wedding Dress Raffle thats all

So why the Wedding Dress Raffle?

Well, if no one has noticed yet, their is a recession. I was supposed to be married and it did not work out. Simple right? We had the rings, reception hall all I needed was some shoes and I was good to go. As fate would have it I broke it off. He wasn't a bad guy, the timing wasn't right. Actually we are great friends and he just had a baby. Really I am thrilled for him.

The dress is gorgeous and I figured I am a new author promoting my book Who's Got Skills, I didn't like the consignment shops in my area and really I was too spacey to remember to look for the shop to bring the dress to. Really, I wanted to do something nice for someone else. President Obama said how will you help others in 2009.

My way of doing is, I have friends that either have lost someone to breast cancer or had breast cancer. My mom is an RN Oncology Nurse and she loses quite a bit of patients to various types of cancer. Her stories of the great people she has aided made me want to give 5% of what I made from the raffle to the National Breast Research foundation.

I want to give a smile to a Bride that wants a dress but may not have the funds to spend allot of money for a dress and a veil.

Finally, I want people to read my book Who's Got Skills and enjoy a story about Love, Murder and Motorcycles. For $20.00 as an entry to buy a book. I consider that to be a great deal.

So no it's not a gimmick or get rich scheme. I just think my book is worth the money spent.

Breast Cancer Research is important and finally. If I can't be a fabulous size 8 Bride someone should be.

Now that I have explained to the ones knitting their eyebrows worried about the validity of it all go to my website and get Who's Got Skills at hit the Pay Pal button and you will receive an autographed copy of the book and a raffle ticket.

Winner will be responsible to pay for shipping and handling if only purchased one raffle entry or one – two books.

Purchase 3 books or more and we will ship the dress and veil to you for “FREE

Contact with any questions
Or call 240 320 3437

The raffle ends March 3, 2009 and will be announced on this blog.

Points just in case I forgot. The Monique Luo dress and veil are brand new purchased from David's Bridal

I don't have a picture of the veil but it is antique (ivory) scalloped edges and long Cathedral style

I hope you don't miss out on a great opportunity all for twenty bucks.

Heck you can't even fill up a gas tank for twenty bucks these days..

Good Luck
