Excerpt from Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One

Only three chapters left and I’m done with Book One. But here’s a little excerpt from Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One.

Right behind where Anatoly stood mulling over his next move, a shiny black S-Class Mercedes Benz pulled up to the curb, and the driver, a Russian man with a low buzz haircut, jumped out and opened the back door for his boss.

A tall blonde man emerged from the back seat donning a tailored tuxedo under a black wool coat. He immediately noticed the young man standing on the sidewalk in a pair of jeans and light jacket too flimsy for the fall weather, but Anatoly didn’t notice him. He was too focused on the huge oak doors in front of him.

Snow crunched under the man’s Italian leather dress shoes. A deep baritone interrupted the silence. “Are you looking for someone?” Dmitry asked, stepping up on the sidewalk.

Anatoly turned around and ran his gaze up to the 7-foot giant’s piercing eyes. Flakes of snow landed in the man’s blonde curly hair and a gust of wind caused him to tug at the top of his coat. He looked down at the boy with ice blue eyes that seemed to burn straight through him.

Anatoly swallowed hard and cleared his throat. Digging in his hands down in his pants pockets, he answered. “I’m looking for Dmitry Medlov.” He stood up straighter. Something about the man, demanded it of him.

“What do you want with him?” Dmitry asked curiously.

“Kirill Derevenko sent me from Moscow,” Anatoly explained, noticing the driver’s posture tense. The driver didn’t bother to hide the guns under his jacket or his suspicion of the boy’s presence. Anatoly glanced back up to Dmitry, hesitant to blurt out their familial connection so quickly. “He said you were expecting me.”

There was a brief awkward silence.

Dmitry’s smooth tanned face finally lit up pleasantly with a toothy smile. His high cheekbones were rosy. “Kirill! Yes, he is a very good friend from back home.” He winked at Anatoly. “I’m the man you’re looking for.”

Dmitry’s Closet is still on Amazon’s Bestseller List and Mae Reads Reviewed the Book

Hi Everyone,

Mae Reads reviewed Dmitry’s Closet on YouTube. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to hear from my fans. Take a look and check it out. Shout out to Mae.

Also, speaking of Dmitry’s Closet, it’s still on the Amazon’s Bestseller’s List. I’m so honored and so proud of your support.  You know, when I first published this book back in January of 2010, no one was writing bwwm mafia books.  So, people took it with mixed emotions.  I got my butt handed to me on a few of the reviews, LOL, but the overwhelming consensus was that readers wanted more and encouraged me to continue on this road, developing the Medlov Crime Family.  Here we are six almost seven years later, still doing what we do.  I’m in the process of working on two new Medlov books: Anatoly’s Retribution and Dmitry’s Redemption.  (I have the “R” thing going there).  Anyway, the reason that we are here is because of YOU.  You paid the money, spread the word, suggested the book to friends and in your book clubs, sent me emails of encouragement and most of all you believed in me.   I love you all. I thank you and I’m so humble and grateful for your blessings on my life.

Here’s to seven more years of The Medlov Crime Family!

Your biggest fan,

Latrivia

It has been a long twelve hours.  But after many phone calls to Amazon by myself and fans, the book has finally been released and the block has been removed from US readers.  Other readers in other countries were able to access the book, but those in the states could not.  They told us that the KDP office was closed Monday-Friday, but we spoke with mangers and asked them to send urgent emails.  For those managers, I am grateful.  For every fan, I am thankful.  Your support and patience is what keeps me going.  I want you to know how much you mean to me.  It’s funny. Adversity comes at you from every angle.  They didn’t want to release the book.  Three readers gave me bad reviews because they could not download the book even though they had not read one word, but GOD was there and he made all those crooked places straight.  I’m smiling with you as you read this and I’m grateful for being so blessed to have you.

So here it is.  Click the link and purchase today from Amazon.  Gabriel’s Regret: Book Two LIVE.

Sincerely your biggest fan,

Being Black in Ukraine: A Need to Adopt

Some of my readers have reached out in either disbelief or denial that there are people of color in Ukraine. I was so happy for those emails from people who were shocked yet impressed that we had a presence there, and heart broken by those who sent emails saying such a thing simply was not true. We need to know. And in some cases, we need to help. Look at this video and you’ll understand my heartbreak.
