#8SentenceSunday: Regrets….ALONE (Book 5 of The Butterfly Memoirs)


***WHOO HOO!!! ALONE will be #1Click ready this week!!! Look for it November 3, 2016!!! In the meantime, check out this weeks snippet! ***

Derrick continues to wallow in self-pity, drowning the aggravation of how his life has turned out in a shot glass while sitting in a strip club.


Shaun and I had been handed the reins two years ago. I took them and ran with them. Shaun caved under the pressure and left not only the business, but his wife and two beautiful daughters. Apparently, his drug of choice to escape the pressure went from weed to crack. A huge leap from a manageable narcotic to a killer.

I should know; I’d experimented with weed when I was in college and a few years beyond. But it was just a recreational thing, not habitual.

Bad decisions were made; the repercussions affected me and my family.

I had a lot of shit to make up for, and I had.

Thanks to Shaun, I was about to start over.

About the novel….

When Derrick’s brother drives the family business into bankruptcy, Derrick is left without a job and only one choice: start over. With a new job waiting in Atlanta, the only other thing he’s looking for is a woman who’s willing to fit his no-strings-attached relationship policy. But then he runs into Kelli, a woman with a smart mouth who challenges him in every way. She’d be perfect … if it weren’t for the fact she had kids.

Shortly after giving birth to her son, Kelli’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce. Forced to move in with her newlywed sister, Kelli is faced with raising two young children on her own, finding affordable housing, and landing a job that will pay her bills. The last thing she needs or wants is a man in her life. But when her brother-in-law’s best friend shows up for dinner, it’s impossible to ignore the sexual attraction.

Fate and finances have another plan, though, forcing them into living under the same roof. Despite their differences, Derrick finds himself breaking his own relationship rules. But as his luck would have it, just when he thinks he’s ready to make a commitment, tragedy strikes close to home and, with it, issues from his past that force him to risk it all.

  1. Good Morning MJ,

    Sometimes it’s hard to keep a family business going when you’re relying on members who have a different agenda. It’s really disheartening that Derrick was going to have to start all over. But also heartening that he’s not giving up.

  2. Hi, great snippet. I do have one request. I’m moderating for the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop and since you included your blog on the signup list, I have to ask that you include a backlink to the list in your post. Thank you,
    Jess Schira
