Hey Nerdy Peeps! HAve you met my book baby? I honestly wasn’t sure when I would make this post and I can’t believe I’m typing these words. My book baby is done with edits! So, here is a sappy post that will be full of tears and happiness!
Deadly Love is ready to publish
I cried when I edited the last edit for my book baby. They weren’t sad tears, or tears of frustration, they were tears of happiness. I have put long hours and tears and frustration into this book, and I can’t believe it’s finished.
I guess now comes the part of publishing. That means there will be a pre-order link coming soon and then a purchase link, and let me tell that this part is what I’m really nervous about.
Why are you nervous Jessie?
Because I am putting my book baby out there. I’m putting my dream out there. People are going to read it and I hope y’all fall in love with it. I started this journey in November of 2017 for NaNoWriMo and it took lots of edits and lots of patience to get this far. So, guess what? I’m going to share an excerpt with you!

I killed him. He was dead. I knew he was dead, I double checked. I walked over to his lifeless body and watched for his chest to rise and fall. When it didn’t move, I knew he was dead.
The man walking towards me now said otherwise. How did this even happen? It was a clean shot, right through the heart. Then, another shot in the heart just to be sure. So, how in the hell was he walking towards my barn? I pulled my gun from my jeans. He was about 150 feet from me when I aimed and fired, only to slip on a rock and miss the shot to his head. He didn’t even flinch. In what felt like a split second, he had me pinned up against the barn wall with his hand around my throat. I then watched as he threw my gun across the field. He wasn’t cutting off my airway, but he had enough pressure to let me know he wasn’t playing.
“You missed,” he smirked. “Also, bullet-proof vests work wonders.”
“I see that,” I answered angrily. “Guess I’ll aim higher next time.” I wasn’t sure what he meant by that last comment, but I would worry about that later.
I was at a loss for words. I still couldn’t believe he was alive.
The best way not to have to marry him was to shoot him.
He was the son of a drug dealer and that was not the life I wanted. Now I was screwed, especially if they found out he was alive. I did not want to marry this man. We had nothing in common and he knew I hated his guts. All I wanted to do was live a normal life without the complications of my past. Since the bullet didn’t do its job, it looked like that might change. Unless he had other plans?
You didn’t think I would give you all of chapter one, did you? Hehe nope, you’ll have to read it to find out the rest.
Here’s the beautiful cover for my book baby, designed by me! I can’t wait for it to be in the public even though I am freaking out!
This is real! I can’t believe this is actually happening and it only took nine months to get here! Stay tuned for the pre-order link and other goodies!
