Are You Reading Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One This Weekend?


The book is finally out. After a few months of haggling with myself to get it done, I finally released Anatoly from my clutches. I have to admit that it’s hard. You grow so close to the characters until the manuscript is never really complete in the author’s mind. I could re-edit, rewrite for the rest of my life on the Medlov Men and never find a stopping point, because I enjoy it so much.

Alas, I have worked through my desire to keep this project close to my bosom and given my baby to you – for your personal entertainment.

So, now my question is, what are you doing this weekend. Outside of all the other things we have to do – soccer games, homework, dinner, weddings, hitting the gym, grocery shopping, laundry, quality time with the family and loved ones, etc. – I truly hope that you’ll be reading my book as well.

So far, I’ve received nearly 100 emails from our Quill Pen readers who have already read the book. They want to know when the second part of the book is coming out, because in the past I have been notorious for disappearing for months after a book drop. Well, not now. I’m back, ladies and gents. And Book Two will be released on November 1st. It will also be $3.15.

The second question that seems to be very popular is will all the questions be answered in the second book that arise from the first book. The answer is ABSOLUTELY! I love giving you a firm foundation and understanding of the characters and their state of mind before we get to the action and adventure of it all.

This book, in paperback format, which will come out on Amazon in one week, is 400 pages long. However, on the Kindle, they say it’s 246. If you’re hoping to get the paperback for your collection. We’ll send a separate update on that.

I really hope you buy the book today. We’re on the Amazon bestseller’s list in both Romantic Suspense and Multicultural/Interracial Romance. This is because you all have been so very wonderful with your support over the years.

I cannot express my gratitude for each of you. This new book is a celebration of life for me. LIAM is here, and he’s beautiful and precious and wonderful. The love I have for him is immeasurable. Y’all he is so perfect. God has been good. So, I’m on cloud nine. Thank you for being patient with me.

Also, I still have to put my collaboration with nine other amazing authors in our New Orleans project, Creole Nights. This was my first paranormal romance. Warlocks: The Creole Coven is the last book in the box set. I plan to re-release it in December with more meat. Make it bigger, better and more exciting. However, I can say it was an honor to watch the women on this project work. They are true professionals and talented their crafts.

So now back to my question. Are you going to read Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One this weekend? I truly hope that you will. And don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon, especially if it’s a good one. LOL.

Sending all my love to you. May you have a wonderful weekend.

Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One
“Life has a way of coming full circle, even for the wealthiest and most powerful of men. If he is lucky, that closed circle will lead him to his purpose.” Renee Medlov

Anatoly Medlov has seen a few things in his young life. From rags to riches, the beautiful blonde Vor was elevated from the poverty-ridden streets of the Kapotnya District in Moscow to the lavish, billionaire lifestyle of his international Russian Mafiya father, Dmitry Medlov. However, ascension did not come without sacrifice for the young prince of the underworld. Every woman Anatoly has ever loved or had affection for in his adult life has been scarred by him in some way.

While on a mission to find his half-brother in Miami, Anatoly is faced with a chance to face his demons and save his marriage, but what he doesn’t know is closing the perpetual circle of hurt in his life will lead him on a larger journey to save his baby sister from a sinister man and its sex trafficking ring.

Anastaysia is right under Anatoly’s nose, being trafficked in the same city that he’s in to carry out his father’s orders. Torn from her family and tricked into slavery, she discovers that there are worse monsters in this world than her brother, Anatoly. With no way to find Anatoly and no way to run, she must depend on her prayers to be heard and a miracle to happen.

Gabriel’s Regret: Book Two Synopsis

holding gun gangster sitting in chair

That’s right.  I’ve hit “Publish” on Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes and Noble’s Nook, and we’re waiting to go LIVE on the platforms to bring you my next story…

“There is nothing redeeming in what we do.  We are simply bad men.” Dmitry Medlov

Russian Billionaire bad-boy Gabriel Medlov is in serious mortal danger.  Captured by a Neo-Nazis separatist group while trying to save his black girlfriend and business partner, Valeriya Nenya, during an ambush, he is relegated to being the prisoner of a man who not only hates Gabriel’s family, but also hates everything that the handsome six-foot eight crime boss stands for.  However even though he is a captor, Gabriel refuses to be broken, either mentally or physically, by anyone so beneath him.  Reaching down inside of himself, he discovers that his past experiences with his family were not crutches but actually lessons designed to prepare him for this very moment in his life.  Will what he has learned keep him alive?

 

The Medlov Crime Family is not taking the kidnapping of one of their council members lightly.  While they are no strangers to abduction, they realize it will take drastic measures to get him back in one peace.  The head of the organization, Dmitry Medlov, pulls his men together and wreaks havoc on an army completely unready for his unrelenting retribution.  The message is clear.  He wants his nephew back.  But even with his vast resources, can he get him back alive?

 

While protected by the Medlov Family from the outside world, Valeriya Nenya has to wage her own war inside the family, not only to get Dmitry to take her back with him when they extract the man she loves from the clutches of the Neo-Nazis but also to fight the battle going on between herself and the pregnant ex-girlfriend of Gabriel whose secrets will cost someone their life before the tale has ended. But who will die?

 

Read the action-packed, sexy, organized crime sensation about the original Russian Mafia Crime Family that will have you screaming for more.  One-click Gabriel’s Regret: Book Two by USA TODAY bestselling bwwm author Latrivia Welch today.

Appalled at Trump’s New Muslim-Ban Suggestion

americanflag

No, I’m not happy with what happened in Paris.  I’m not happy with what happened in San Bernardino. I’m not happy with 9/11.  I’m not happy with the fact that we’re still in war in the Middle East. I’m not happy with the precious American life lost in a war where men and women who didn’t die in war most often came back emotionally damaged and physically mauled.

ptsd-soldier-crying-300x200

But I think many others across this country and world are mad too, including most people of the Muslim faith, and most of the civilized nations – yes, even third world nations.  Let’s not get all ethnocentric and amnesic here in a country based in not only a beautiful melting pot but also centuries of systematic ethnic oppression.  We are in no place to judge.  Our very future depends on the ability for us to stick together; to uplift others; to believe in unity.  And also, what does that say to all of our patriots who gave their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places in the hope that they were liberating and protecting Muslims?  SMH.

_86836853_tayyib

I don’t want to get into the usual, “my best friend is Muslim” conversation as to suggest that just because we know someone who is Muslim then that gives us the right to condemn or not to condemn an entire people.  What I believe is that regardless of whether you know someone who is Muslim or not, you will not allow yourself to become a hate mongering idiot.  Because then, what better would you be than our own enemy?  And no one wants to be identified as a Hitler sympathizer, which is what Trump would have you do.  He’s basically like “Let’s give them all numbers on the wrist and corral them like cattle.”  Are you serious?  Are you F*c#ing serious?  What about all our Muslim leaders, our doctors, our lawyers, our historians, our military personnel, our first responders, our neighbors…the list goes on to the point where I am exhausted.  And you should be too, at the hateful rhetoric.

maxresdefault Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar-Net-Worth aasif-mandvi

Yes, I’m a good Catholic (my faith is my own and my desire is to please only Him), but nearly 1/4th of this world is Muslim.  How do you cut 1/4 of the human population out of the conversation of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?    To believe that all these people (1.6 billion with a B) want to kill Americans is…paranoid schizophrenia.  To suggest that we boot everyone out of our country who doesn’t think like us is un-American. To suggest that we can’t help someone of another faith in their time of need, like Syrian refugees, is STUPID.  To condemn those who are giving their lives to fight ISIS is inhumane.  To say that these people, HUMANS MIND YOU, have no right to life is immoral.  I don’t want any part of that crazy train.  And I’m embarrassed that he’s been given a mic to express himself.  I thought we normally kept those types in the back room of grandma’s house away from phones and other electronics.

Mommy Journal Entry #3,545

Superwoman

Today, our little Tierra came into our bedroom and crawled between us in the dark.  “Mommy, Daddy, wake up,” she said, voice all sweet and innocent.  We turned to find her shaking.  Both of us shot up.  Shag turned on the light and checked her forehead; I pulled out the thermometer.  She announced.  “I threw up.  I think I have a bug.”

We both jumped to action.  Ginger Ale. Crackers.  Meds.  Cold Towel.  We were hopping like beans.  Both of us discussed who should take off work while Shag rocked her in his arms.  And in the middle of all of this, it comes to me that Tierra is eight years old and extremely tall.  LOL.  Why is he still rocking her like when she was five?  Never mind, I can’t bring up how he spoils her at this moment.  We need to get her better.

Long story short.  There is a bug running around rampant and it’s loose in our hose.  Our little princess has it.  And the normal running order is Shag, me and finally Jordan.

Meanwhile, after hearing that she has a bug, Jordan covers his face like Michael Jackson and bolts out of the house for the bus ten minutes early.  I shake my head.  That’s the only time I can ever get that boy out of the house without pushing him.

Such is the life of Mommy.

PSA for Interracial Romance Readers by Latrivia Welch

But Why Do You Do It? An insightful look at why I chose to write Interracial Romance

Latrivia Welch Interracial Romance Author

 

I was out the other night having drinks with friends and we started down the rabbit hole of what led us to our professions.  This of course created buzz around our table and other people quickly pulled from their own tables and joined us.  I was three glasses of wine into the conversation when someone asked me a very serious question.

“Why did you choose to write Interracial Romance, specifically bwwm?”

I’ve been asked this before, but the person who asked seemed to be the type that would not take a flippant or even cosmetic answer.  They wanted details; they wanted to decide what side of the proverbial black aisle I sat on.  Was I a blind assimilator or was I truly making conscious decisions?

Anyone in an interracial relationship, who has interracial children, has a friend from another race knows what I speak of.  And I won’t delve too far into that because it’s the subject of a book that I’m writing and I want your responses later.  And it would be awesome to also talk abut this great show, Black-ish, that also hits some damn good points about the contemporary African-American experience.

 

19738

So back to the question…

I cannot lie.  I drank the last of my wine before answering.  After all, I did not know this person and this could easily go out in left field and with it my growing buzz.

“I’m tired of stereotypes,” I said honestly, when I was done with my Chardonnay.

The raised brow of the individual let me know that they understood what I was saying even if I hadn’t elaborated.

VIBE_Vixen-Michelle-Obama

Black women aren’t all money-hungry, poor, uneducated, angry, vengeful, loud and obnoxious as many books would have us portrayed.  In fact, we’re quite brilliant.

couple1

White men aren’t all rich, powerful, famous, gentle, courageous and classy (with a wink) as books would have them portrayed.

 

Each person is completely unique and there should be a story for each of us.  Now, that’s not going to happen, but it’s great to have a rainbow of stories about bwwm relationships that kill the stereotypes and create new discussion.  We deserve that.    We deserve to not fit into anyone’s box, not be forced to look a certain way, feel a certain way or be accepted only if we come from a certain background.  We need stories that tell a different story, that empower us and that flatter us and that just put us on an equal playing field.

Faces of a Couple

But I’m just one woman with one computer.  So tell me WORLD, what do you think?

Onward,
