Latrivia Nelson’s 2014 Release Dates

*May Change

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for me. The last leg of the 2014 year, and every book that I’ve been working on for this year needs to be out by December 31, 2014.  Why?  Because I have a 12-book list for 2015, and I’d like not to have to write two books a monthJ

So many readers have wanted to know what in the world is coming first and when.  And you guys know how I feel about listing a deadline, but I’m going to do it as long as you don’t hold me to it.  Fair enough. You get what you want and I get an opportunity to at least try to be goal-oriented.

This has been a fun year truly.  I felt like my old self again, actually even better.  So, I’ve been writing notes, outlines, quotes and now I think I’m finally ready to do some writing.

Plus, I’ve put together an awesome little video of the covers.  You know me. I like to impress you.

Take a look and tell me what you think. In the next few days, we’ll take each book and list the synopsis and move forward with how you can give your input.

Big hugs and kisses to you all.

So Close to the Finish Line

I know the question is, what happened?  Even as I sit here and right this, I’m asking myself the exact same thing.  I went to North Carolina to participate in the Beautiful Trouble Publishing Eat and Greet, which was awesome by the way, and then I came home to complete hysteria.  Deadlines were falling out of the sky like dead birds and the minute that they hit the ground, they infected me with more work.  In between traveling like a complete psycho, hitting the office, and taking care of home, I was getting four hours of sleep at most, but the one thing that I did accomplish was Saving Anya.  I have notes that go a mile long, at least.  I wrote on napkins and paper bags, on books and notepads.  I got great ideas that forced me to change the story at least ten times.  But you know what, somehow all of the hysteria in my life only made me more creative.

On the due date of Saving Anya, I had a choice.  I could drop a book that I would be embarrassed to put my name on or I could wait and give you something that was worth your money.  So that’s what I’m doing.  I’m literally on the cusp of this book being finished and I feel damned good about it.  I can’t tell you how good that feels.

Now, in order to that, I had to fade to black.  I didn’t accept any phone calls or send out any emails.  So, I promise that I’ll answer all of them once I’m done.  I didn’t get on Facebook, Twitter anyone, or even blog.  That was so hard not to do.  But I had to focus .  Every moment that I could, I wrote.  Now I am so close to the finish line.

Being such, I can finally get back to at least blogging with you guys.  There are things that I can’t wait to ask you, and I can’t wait to share like my experience with the best group of gals in the world from BTP.  That will be in a blog entry shortly following this one entitled The League of Extraordinary Gentlewomen. Even though I was under the gun, I got a chance to meet the world’s most amazing librarians, some seriously empowered authors and devoted fans. It was totally worth pulling away, and my mom even went with me.  That was so cool…even though she is more of a free thinker than I first knew.  That’s a whole other blog entry.

So, I’ve been taking care of Adam, who is getting better by the day.  I’m proud to report that he’s looking great these days.  I’m so proud of him, and so proud that he’s pulling through.  With everything that he’s been through, to see him smile and laugh (my brother-in-law and sister-in-law came down for a week to help out and totally made our month), is better than any amount of money.

You know, people always say that they’ll do anything for their spouse, but sometimes we have to prove it.  We have to put everything down and stand in front of the bus with it moving at top speed and say take your best shot because I’m not going anywhere.  Well, that’s what I’ve been doing in his healthcare.  I’ve been standing in front of that bus, and even though the impact hurt, I’m not flat yet, ladies.  I’m still standing.  But the bus…isn’tJ

So you want to know when the book will be out.  You don’t want empty promises.  Well, let me give you a real timeline.  This book will be finished in draft form by this Monday.  Our good friend Karen is going to look over it and give it her proofreading and editing seal of approval and then we send it to the printer for a week.  Basically, we’ll b ready to take e-book orders and pre-orders on March 27th or sooner.  Then it’s on to The World in Reverse.  Hey, no one ever said life was easy.

To everyone who has called and sent emails, I want you to know that I love you, appreciate you and pray for you also in return.  Thanks for being amazing, and having patience.  This has not been an easy time in my life at all, but God has given me strength, and I’m still here.  And as long as I’m here, I’ll be writing for you guys.  So, I may be late, but I’ll be there.

Until next entry, have a great one.

XoXo and all that jazz,

Latrivia

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.
