Posted on Updated on

Blood Thirst; An Eternal Romance by [Dormaine G.]Octavia, a human, appeared into this world with a mysterious past unknown to even her. Victor a cultured man of influential prestige was born a savage vampire. They should have never been but their attraction was so profound neither could deny their love.

“Tell me to stop and I will.” He came to stand in front of her after hearing no more words of resistance cross her lips.
In a split second, he wished he could sire her and take her for his own. He wanted to tell her everything. This world, his world, about vampires, but he could not.

Victor gripped her face within his palms. “I cannot let you go. I will not,” he exhaled, caressing her lips. “But if you want me to, I will leave you be. Forever…”

“This is madness…” Octavia gazed up at him speechless. She tried to resist him, but the words of refute would not flow.

“And I cannot breathe when you are not near. I cannot think when you are not by my side. The last few days have been murderous knowing that I could not have you” He kissed her, not allowing her to refuse him.

He would never let her go.

Posted on


Tommy Ford,  best known for his role on Martin as Tommy,  was taken off life support an Atlanta hospital Wednesday afternoon, TMZ reports. Ford was on life support after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen. He was 52.

Ford’s rep released a statement on behalf of his family confirming his passing, which read: “It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of our beloved Son, father, brother, husband, and friend Tommy Mykhal Ford.”

A Los Angeles native, Ford’s other credits included the Fox 1990s drama “New York Undercover,” the 1990 CBS sitcom “Uncle Buck,” and NBC’s short-lived “Singer & Sons” from the same year.

On “Martin,” Ford usually played the straight man to star Martin Lawrence in the sitcom about a radio and TV personality. Ford played the lead character’s best friend. He was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in 1996 for his work on “Martin,” which ran from 1992-97.

In recent years Ford had been a mainstay as an actor and producer of independent films and telepics geared toward African-American audiences, including 2016’s “Blues for Life” and “Love Different,” 2015’s “Every Family Has Problems,” and “Conflict of Interest.”

From 2006 to 2008 Ford hosted TV One’s comedy competition series “Who’s Got Jokes.”

In the 1990s and early 2000s Ford logged a slew of guest shots and supporting roles in films. His TV resume ranged from “Law & Order” and “MacGyver” to “Judging Amy” and “House.” His film credits included 1989’s “Harlem Nights,” 1992’s “Class Act,” and 1997’s “Against the Law.”

5 Questions with Chloe Quinn

Posted on Updated on

chloe-author-pic-black-and-whiteFavorite Read: This question is always a tough one for me because I love to read. But I will limit it to one. Currently I am enjoying a great poetry book by award winning author Lexi Miles entitled Focused on Love. Okay and if I can sneak one more in I would say Custom Fit also by Lexi Miles. (I’m a fan of her work). *Smiles*

Where do you find inspiration for most of your books? I tend to draw inspiration from everywhere. Like with my current work Daphne, I was inspired after watching a marathon of Hallmark Christmas movies. Most of the movies took place in a small town. So I figured what would be a better setting than Daphne being set in the fictional small town of Donna’s Gate, Ca where Daphne grew up. Then the story just took off from there. Like the movies I watched, I knew Daphne had to have an uncomfortable situation she had to overcome. So I decided on making it about Daphne’s return home after she loses her job at a production house in the big city of San Francisco, Ca. 

Do you have a favorite writing space? I would have to say, put me next to a body of water resize-cover-daphne-copyand I’m good. I love to write by the pool, a lake, and sometimes even near the ocean. I would have said a coffee house too but I wasn’t too sure if could say the hot water they use for making the drinks would count. *giggles*

What tactics have you found to be most effective against writer’s block? I find if I step away and relax my mind, I normally can get passed the block. Some things I do are take my dogs out for a walk, watch an episode of one of my favorite shows, play a game on my smartphone, or listen to my ambience sound spa machine.

The other thing I find helps is talking out the point I have gotten stuck on.  I don’t care how crazy I appear talking to myself out loud, but I discuss what would be the most logical next place to take the story aloud because it really does end up helping me get to something good.

Are you an active participant in the cover design of your books? I do love that I have a say in the design of my book covers. Having this freedom is great. Being able to give specific description guidelines of what my characters look like in my head to my publisher and the publisher follows those guidelines, delivers a real pleasing end result I believe for the readers. I imagine it will help readers connect even more with the headspace I was in while I was composing the book. I think when the right depiction of the characters appears in the cover art it makes it feel, for me anyway, like the final step for completing the book has been achieved.
