June 1 update - thank you, thank you, thank you!

June 1 Update 

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I logged in for the first time since my May 13 hiatus announcement to find my reads reached 19k! What an absolutely wonderful surprise. You guys are rock stars! 

I am slowly working back to my Booksie posting schedule, I promise. I am going to take some time to focus on editing and rewriting "Beyond Dark 2", and I want to rewrite "BD 4: Magic Touch". It simply isn't what I wanted it to be. So, no new updates upcoming, but I am working on some things while I process my current mental health issues. I'll be okay - one day, one moment at a time. But I figured you all deserved an update, at least, since I said I'd be back at the end of May. 

I'll upload the second draft of BD2 when the rewrites are done. In the meantime, I'm returning to the research stage for "Magic Touch". You can really tell I hit burn out stage with that one. I'm removing it until I return to rewriting it. I'll keep you updated! 

Thank you for sticking with me. It really does mean the world to me. Even us writers get burned out on our passion and have lulls where we doubt our abilities. I think I just need some time to rework some things and not be in such a fast-paced first draft stage for a while. 

As for the short story... I still haven't decided what to do with it. Post it here? Save it for a newsletter freebie? I eventually want to rework it into a novel for Emily's character but I may post it here for the time being, as I didn't plan on submitting it anywhere else. 

Anyway... thanks again for the reads and support. It means a lot to me, truly. Stay tuned for updates and second drafts coming up, but there won't be anything new posted for a bit. I'll let you know when that will resume. Take care of yourselves. 

Love, 

Lav

"Beyond Dark"

"Beyond Dark": Rewriting and editing stage for Books 2, 3, and 4 - no new updates for a bit. 

"Magic Touch" takes Alyssa and Thayer to the blinding lights of Las Vegas, where murders crop up around a famous magician. Is she the culprit, or is someone around her trying to destroy her career and reputation? Magic comes with a price - but who is paying it? 

"Beyond Cover": I am archiving the series to do a complete rewrite. BD3 gave me a lot more ideas of what to incorporate into BC and I know it can be much better. I don't currently have a timeline for BC's return. 

Thanks for your patience, and for the support!

Profile Information

​I am a 32-year old author who wants to share the worlds inside my head with everyone. This is a journey I have been on for almost ten years now. The first book of my crime fiction series, "Beyond Dark 1: Belladonna" is now available at various retailers as ebook and paperback!

The theme woven through my books is survival. We survive adversity, trauma, hardship and obstacles every day. I survived a decade of child abuse and domestic violence. I want fellow survivors to know they aren't alone. You matter. It is okay to hit rock bottom, to fall, but we don't need to unpack and live there. Writing is what helped me survive, and continues to do so. It has been my life-saving foundation while struggling with mental illness and PTSD. Now, I want the worlds inside my head to reach you.
