I want to shout out to my publisher at Shadoe Publishing (shadoepublishing.com) who arranged the early release of Heart of Fire due to demands of the public. Thank you K’Anne Meinel for rearranging our scheduled timeline and working so hard to have it released.

Blog Hop

1) What am I working on? Heart of Vengeance – sequel to Heart of Fire – It ties my last two books together.

My first book was the crossroads and I have received five star reviews on it.


My second book is Heart of Fire which will be released on Feb. 1,2014


Detective Danni Pacelli’s life was going as planned when promoted to homicide.  When she meets her new partner Annabel Flanery, the charming young Detective, the perfect life she fought so hard to protect, was now at stake.  Danni quickly realizes the feelings she has for Annabel are more than infatuation.The more the two battle to save lives and fight crime together, the more in love they fall.

2) How does my work differ from others of its genre? I write lesbian fiction. My story lines are in the nature of romantic adventure, suspense, thriller, detective, and crime. What makes them different is only the perception of what a person sees as the norm. Heart of Fire which will be released February 1, 2014 and can be purchased on Amazon, createspace, or direct from my publishers website www.shadoepublishing.com

3) Why do I write what I do? I love to write. Since I was a child it had consumed most of my time. I love to lose myself within the characters. I feel what they feel and live within that moment with them. It is also a way to give back to our community and I pray they enjoy what I write.

4) How does my writing process work? I do not have a set process. I can be walking down the street and a scene comes to me. I usually write it down right away. However, when I write, I do not see the screen or the keyboard. I am seeing what they see, I see what they feel and I narrate the story.

My bio is up on Amazon

corrected by fireplace2

The excitement you feel when you see your bio up on Amazon and your hard work in print is such an amazing feeling, and when I open each book and I read the reviews. The feeling I get is beyond words. I am so grateful for the people who took the time to rate and describe the feeling they got from reading each book. I will be adding new titles soon and I pray that each of my fans really enjoy each new book. You maybe fans of my writing, but I am your fan for having faith in my book to buy it and then share your read with others. Again, I want to thank each of you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story that grew on me, December 20, 2013

This review is from: The Crossroads (Paperback)

At first I didn’t like any of the characters, I found’em too cocky or screwed up. But as I kept reading something about them started to make sense. By the end I was so absorbed in the story I didn’t see the end coming at all. Now I’m left with a one question: will there be a sequel?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! December 31, 2013

I saw this advertised on facebook and thought I would buy the kindle version so if it is not a good book, I would not be not be out much money. I wish I would have bought book. This is a keeper. So, I will order the book because I want to read this again. I want to turn the pages. I started to read it as a way to fall asleep. I never got to sleep. I could not stop reading it. There was a good mix of dialogue with description which kept this flowing so nice. The love sense were amazing, and the most important part was I could relate with the characters. I can see them as real, not these fictional made up/never going to exist stories that leaving you feeling cheated. Ms. Carter, thank you for a great book, I saw from the back of the book you have another book coming out. I like what I read so far of it. I will be watching for it. A++++ author.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXHILARATING!!! December 13, 2013

By AnnMarie Bongiorno

Format:Kindle Edition

I was amazed how well this story flowed. I couldn’t stop reading it, and that is rare for me. I have read so many books over the years, some good, some okay and some poorly written. This is one of the best I have read in a long time. I look forward to the next book HEART OF FIRE. The few chapters you inserted at the end of the book drew me in right away and I can’t wait to read it. When will it be available? Thank you for writing this and I have added you to my favorite author’s list. Look forward to more from you.
