Release Dates-Review-Hopeful New Sale
Happy Friday everyone!

Release Dates

I have received release dates for both of the stories I sold to Cobblestone Press. I was really hoping for a July release date...but, that's ok, I'm still happy.

One Week Stand will be released August 4th.

Vindication: The Adventures of a Private Jane will be released September 1st.


I've been agonizing on my first review...but here it is and I'm really happy about it. Euro-Reviews had this to say about "A Thin Line."

Lyric James has written a fantastic love story! A Thin Line is a sweet short story that was tantalizing to read. The setting for A Thin Line is the absolute perfect place for anyone to fall in love in. Sam and Melodie are perfect for one another. They are both two intelligent African Americans on their way to success. I loved the little twist that Lyric reveals about Sam as an author. That was quite clever! It was wonderful to read how Sam and Melodie discovered that there is a thin line between love and lust. When love is real you have to give your all and fight for it. Lyric James proves that she has got what it takes to make it in the literary world. I recommend A Thin Line for your reading pleasure.

Isn't that super! Now, I can relax. See the entire review here. Euro Reviews

Hopeful New Sale

I completed Sparks Fly today and sent it off to Cobblestone Press. However, I changed the title to "One Day At A Time." Wish me luck on another sale.

Have a great 4th of July! Can't wait to take my girls to see the fireworks!!! :-) Lyric

Update!! and Stuff!!

Finished all my edits on the two trysts I sold to Cobbletone Press earlier this month. So hopefully, I'll have a release date for both July and August. You can check out a blurb and excerpt of both "One Week Stand" and "Private Jane" on my books page.

I'm also in the process of completing "Sparks Fly" on my WIP page. I'm hoping to sub it to Cobb by the end of next week. Wish me luck. The hubby is out of town this weekend, so I plan to get a lot of writing done while he's gone.


I am a great supporter of other writers, especially my friends at LLOO and Cobblestone Press. So, with that in mind, I wanted to recommend some books for you to purchase and read if you haven't done so already.

Fire Alarm Neighbor by Anna Leigh Keaton

Tourist Attraction by Shelli Stevens

Fire and Ice by Vivienne King

Office Relations by Lia Sebastian

Lycan Instinct by Brandi Broughton.

I still have left to read, Bargain by Starlight, Bound By Love, and Crossing Borders. I'm sure these will be just as great as the others. And of course, please please please...purchase my book, A Thin Line, as well. :-)

Until Next Time...Happy Reading

Release Date!!
"A Thin Line" will be released, next Friday, June 16th from Cobblestone Press.

I was hoping I'd get a release date in June because I knew they still had some room left. And hot damn, I did.

I'll be announcing a contest next week and doing lots of chats in the upcoming weeks. So, come back soon.

Smooches, Lyric!

I Sold The Other One!!
Wowza!! I sold the other one. Talk about an author on cloud nine. I.AM.FLOATING. This book is the first in a series entitled Adventures Of A Private Jane. The title is "Vindication." Here's a blurb for you to enjoy.

P.I. Karyn Harris’ sister was killed in the line of duty and branded a rogue cop. She’s spent the last year grieving and trying to clear her sister’s name.

Zechariah Washington, an ex-cop and law student, is there to help ease her pain, but he wants to be more than a shoulder to cry on. Then, an unexpected phone call sends the couple on a life-threatening search to find the clue that will vindicate her sister.

Can Zechariah convince Karyn there's more to their relationship or will they both fall victim to the same people who murdered her sister?

Of course, when I get a pub date, I'll let you know. Doing the happy dance!!

I Sold One!!!!
That's right people. "One Week Stand" is officially contracted to Cobblestone Press and I'm downright happy about it. Here's a blurb for you to enjoy.

Jasmine Martin does not believe in happily ever after. However, her best friend is getting married and she promised to be her maid-of-honor. When she was in Las Vegas six months ago, Jasmine enjoyed a passionate one-night stand with a sexy doctor named Evan. After all what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Right?

Well, thats all about to change when sexy Evan turns out to be her best friends cousin. When she sees Evan again, that one night stand turns into one-week. Evan Harris believes its fate that brought Jasmine back into his life again. Before the week is up, can Evan convince Jasmine they can turn their one-week stand into forever?

When I get a release date, you will be the first to know.

Remember that post I did a while back that said I loved it when a story really came together. Well, hot diggity dog, I'm a happy writer this weekend. Not only did I finish that story, I finished 2. Yep, can you say it with me..."2" "2" "2" "2".

I am so happy with myself right now. I've finished them, edited them, and shipped (well..emailed) them off to Cobblestone Press and hopefully they'll agree to publish both of them.

My tentatively titled trysts are called One Week Stand and the first in a three book series called Private Jane-Vindication. I'm still waiting on a release date for A Thin Line.I sent edits back to my editor this week, so, hopefully I'll hear something soon.

I think I'm going to take a day to read those wonderful opening books from Cobb Press and then hop right back on the writing train on Monday. Whoohoo!!

Grand Opening Day!
Cobblestone Press, my publisher, is finally open for business. It's a very exciting day. To see the brainchild of Deanna Lee and Sable Grey come to fruition has been a joy to be a part of.

So, stop by, browse those opening books and due us the honor of purchasing a few. I sure am. :-) In fact, that's what I'm off to do right now. I'll even post my comments about the books as I read them and I hope you do the same.
