Free Kindle / Nook / PDF Story - For those new to Sienna Mynx

As much as I love to get paid for my work, I really feel invested in those that support and follow me through my growing pains as a author. 

I was going through my long list of stories, and fastly writing for my releases this April when it dawned on me--what about offering free short stories as well as published ones?

That's when my World War II love novella came to mind. I used to offer it free online, but removed it. I think I will add it to the mix and release it to the masses. I believe it's under 5K words and sizzling enough to qualify.  I hope you enjoy it. It will be released this April 15th.

New Face To: Daisy's Choice

So excited! 
After careful working and reworking of Daisy's Choice, I realized that the cover design originally done was not quite right. Aiden was not quite right. Then I found my muse, the guy who I envision to be the ruthless Aiden Keane. So I met with my cover designer and we came up with a new cover that captures the characters perfectly. 

Daisy's Choice is slated for release on April 25th (tentatively the 15th). The story is one for the record books and I am so nervous about it's release. But after staring at this cover all night I'm beginning to believe that this story will fascinate and entertain just as the first did. I hope so!

Sequel to Aiden's Game

It's been a helluva journey. Daisy's Choice was first written in May 2009. The story was a very in-depth look on the push and pull of old love and new beginnings. I had hoped that the rewrite would be a quick one for those requesting this sequel. It turned out to be a three month oddessy that has left me totally depleted and filled with pride.  If only it gives the reader the same experience will I have done my job!

Today - March 13th is the day I put the final stroke to the Epilogue and release a collective sigh. The story is over 140K words in length and 400 pages. I had no idea how long and involved it would be. But after several long hour debates (with my muse) I've decided to publish it as is. The love and hate between the characters could not be rushed or cliche'ed. Those that have grown to love these characters expect more. As an author I'm challenged with every story I write to give it 110%. Now I'm a little anxious and leery of the response the follow-up will receive.

I will share that Daisy's Choice, is not a romance. It's not erotica, it's definitely not a comedy. However, you will fall in love with coupling's, laugh at certain scenes and pump your fist in frustration at others. I guess the joy of self-publishing is the freedom to tell the story as it is, and let the readers decide it's value. That's what I will do with Daisy's Choice. The release is tentatively scheduled for mid-April. I can't wait to hear what you think!

The Love of the Irish

An imperfect romance can be the sweetest love. The anticipated sequel to Funny Valentine is here…

Back then, there wasn’t a prison wall dense enough to keep me from dreaming. And you know what? Princess was always there. Didn’t know her name, couldn’t tell you what she looked like, but I knew how I wanted love between my woman and me to feel.

In my dreams, Princess would give me a baby of my own. My moms would have the grandbaby she always wanted. My brother Nicky was alive. Just random stuff that wasn’t supposed to be my life. Now I’m living it, minus my family, that is. I’m living my dream. And this man knows how to love and appreciate...

Melvin Reed is grateful for a second chance at happiness. A wife and kid is more than he ever thought possible, after the crimes and sins he’d committed. But that’s all changed. Now he’s well on his way to having it all. What he doesn’t understand is his lady’s determination to delve into a past he wishes to leave behind. Who cares if they’re different? For Melvin she’s perfectly matched for him in every way.

Tia Jackson Reed has it all. A husband she loves, a new baby on the way, and a life full of love. Married for just over four weeks, she’s determined to explore all the different levels of marital bliss. And to Tia, celebrating their cultural differences is the key.  So she enlists the help of her sisters to bring in a new tradition for the Jackson family: St. Patrick’s Day.

Will Tia’s plans for St. Patrick’s Day bring them face to face with the worst part of Mel, or unify them even more?

This St. Patrick’s Day, you are invited to share another glimpse of love between a man and a woman perfectly matched for each other.  

Another Melvin and Tia holiday treat!
