Official Fan Page on Facebook

bwSo, I’ve been listening and I’ve been trying to deliver.  And I know that you all are tired of having to sift through personal “stuff” on my pages just to get the basics.  Many of you don’t care what I ate for lunch or hear the chatter between “us” that goes on about why Dmitry’s eyes are a different shade of  blue from Ivan’s.  You just want to know when the next book is coming out, where the next book signing will be,  watch the latest book trailer or interview, post your questions and move on.

In fact, quite a few of you have suggested to me (to the point of asking Megan to get on it) to have a normal Fan Page on Facebook that you can “Like” without having to see 1,000 pictures of my children.  LOL. I get it.  And you know what???!!! It’s finally here.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: V4 Finally Released!!!

It’s been a long time coming, and to all my faithful fans, I do apologize.  Life always gets in the way of my writing plans.  It makes me remember a saying, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”  During the last quarter, I had planned to drop several books, including V4.  My expectations, however, did not include my husband nearly dying in sleep, kids with insane homework assignments and several family trips, outings and visits.  Not to mention, RiverHouse opened a new office dead smack in the middle of the financial district of Manhattan (NYC).  I have been buuusssyyy.

The good news is that Adam is doing much better.  You don’t realize how special they are until they are nearly taken from you , right beside you.  For that, I am so thankful to my dear sweet savior, Jesus Christ.  The office is working out great in New York and will offer even more opportunities for readers and authors alike who follow RiverHouse and the family visits were awesome.  I saw my cousin for the first time in ten years and it was amazing.  We are even moving to the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area next summer. 

But with everything going on, my writing slowed to a pitiful crawl.  Now, I’m back.  And as normal after being pulled away from my work, I am on fire.

I have a lot in front of me.  Saving Anya and The World In Reverse are due out both on Christmas Day.  It will be out no later than December 31st.  Please be patient with me.  If I pull this off, this will be the biggest project that I’ve ever taken on.

Now on to Volume 4 and Book One of the Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 4

Now a widower, Dmitry Medlov’s life has completely changed. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, his aspirations quickly move from more money to more power. Only the power he seeks is held by the commanding and elusive Czar of the underworld, Boss Smirnov.
When Dmitry successfully talks the underboss and the all-knowing eye of the underworld, Khalid, into arranging a meeting between he and Boss Smirnov, he has no idea what troubles he is about to face. There are secrets that will be exposed in Prague that will forever change his young life again, leading to a decision that will rock the underworld for good.

Meanwhile, back in London, the city is buzzing about the deaths of the entire board of directors of Dmitry’s newly acquired business, Hutton Industries, minus the company’s former front man, who was involved in a gruesome home invasion that left him blind, deaf, mute and paralyzed.
With no witnesses, leads or proof combined with the botched attempt on his own life during the horrid chain of events, Dmitry is looked over as a person of interest by Scotland Yard and is given carde blache to turn his new private company into his personal money laundering hub right under the public’s nose with the help of his Africa girlfriend, Oxford University senior and business genius, Elsa. And it’s just in time for his new secret alliance with the leaders of a powerful paramilitary sect led by Elsa’s father in Angola, Africa.
Dmitry’s new found power creates a checkmate for his ambitions to be boss but puts a target squarely on his back by not only organized crime heads around the world but also by his own brother, Ivan. Secret alliances are formed. Money is exchanged, and a definite war is looming. Only no one is willing to give up as much as Dmitry is to be king.
Read the last volume of the first book, The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov and witness the heart stopping rise of a giant and everything that he’s willing to do to become the world’s most powerful and deadly boss.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book One

If you’ve been waiting to buy all the volumes of Book One of The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volumes 1-4, the time has now arrived.

By popular demand, Latrivia S. Nelson is proud to announce a compilation of the first four of the twelve volumes from the Medlov Crime Family Short Stories Series.

Dmitry Medlov wasn’t always a billionaire crime boss. His rise to the top was a painstaking process that took many years and many trials and tribulations. From breaking out of prison on a twenty-year bid in Russia to trafficking guns in the back alleys of London and finally toppling a dynasty run by a blood-thirsty Czar, this seven-foot tall, bad boy had to earn every penny.

Along the way, however, he also learned about a woman’s heart, the pain of losing a sick wife, the drain of taking care of a psychotic kid brother, the knowledge of finding out that he was a father and pride of building an empire all before his 25th birthday.

Read about American’s favorite mob boss in four short tales that will have you flipping through the pages and begging for more.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book One by national bestselling author Latrivia S. Nelson.

Now comes the good part.  The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book One will be available in print on December 23, 2011.  If you want to purchase, you can pre-order on the website.  It would be a great stocking stuffer, collector’s addition.  I do hope you consider itJ.

In the next week, we will also be releasing a new book trailer for Book One, which will cover all of the volumes so far.  Lots of fun on that one too.

Latrivia S. Nelson – We’ve Opened Our New Office!

So everyone has been wondering where I have been.  Thanks to everyone who has sent emails to check and make sure that I’m still alive.  I am.  It’s just that this has been the busiest last six weeks of my professional existence.  Many of you know that I am the President and CEO of RiverHouse Publishing.  This is my baby.  In an effort to try to open the doors for more authors like myself who have something to say and not really sure who will listen, I started RiverHouse to provide an opportunity.  As of now, we have five authors and counting, but we’re only just over a year old. 

This year, we plan to go after even more authors.  Bold Authors with Bold Statements to be exact.

This last month, we opened our new office in the swank Clark Tower in Memphis, TN.  It’s the tallest building in the city and from my 27th floor executive suite, I can see half of Memphis.  When I first looked down from my windows, I thought to myself that the world is so small and that we as people are so tiny, but we are also capable of amazing things.  Pyramids, the Parthenon, cures for diseases, going to the moon…who knows maybe even world peace one day.  And while, I have created nor done any of the above mentioned, I still felt accomplished that day. 

It was only after I got home that and settled into my bed for the evening that I thought about all the work I’d just signed up for.  So, I’ve been working on authors, traveling, attending speaking engagements, participating in book club meetings, writing books, meeting with like twenty people a day at the office, still trying to be a good mom and wife and occasionally cracking open the books to work on my dissertation.  It may sound like I’m complaining, but I’m totally not.  I think this is great, but I know that I have to get back to the things that I enjoy like this blog and my radio show.

Many of you also want to know what is going on with the writing.  Well, I’m happy to report that The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 3 will be out this month finally.  This was a hard project this time around, because the fun part about this series is that the stories are short.  However, every time that I worked on Volume 3, it kept getting longer and longer.  So, I had to cut some stuff and leave others while still trying to keep you entertained.  I’m also working on an awesome video with the RiverHouse team to put on youtube for your visual stimulation. 

There are also two additional awesome projects that I’m working on for the Lonely Hearts Series.  Filling His Seat will be out in April and Gracie’s Dirty Little Secret will be out in April or May. 

You guys know how I hate giving real drop dates, because they always seem to change.  So, I’ll just leave it at that.

Also, in 2011, I have received more fan mail than in the last year combined.  2,000 emails, letters, phone calls and texts.  You guys are amazing.  Your feedback literally is like fuel for this entire thing. 

You know my goal is to always entertain you.  We all work every day and need something to pull us away from our lovely lives.  When I’m writing, I’m always thinking of you.  I try to include the things that will make you laugh, make you cry, make you wonder.  That is the great part of being an author.  You get to evoke feelings in people.  For me, the joy of it is evoking happiness.  Everytime one of you guys sends me a note saying how happy you were with the book, my days brightens up.  And I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true.

Okay, so we have three books on the horizon.  We have a new office to push out more work and on better timelines. 

On another note, equally as awesome may I add, Joyfully reviewed did a great review on Dmitry’s Closet.   Joyfully Reviewed is one of the top romance review sites.  Everyone goes there to see what’s new and what’s hot.  So it was a real honor for Nakita Steele to do a review on our favorite Dmitry Medlov.  Also, for those who love Beautiful Trouble Publishing as much as I do, they did a great article on them too.  So congrats, Jayha!
