Tiana Laveen author. Cross Climax

Tiana Laveen was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and now resides in the southern midwest with her husband, two children, and feline companion. She enjoys a fulfilling and enriching life that includes writing books, drawing, painting, listening to music, cooking, and spending time with friends.

Tiana Laveen is a uniquely creative and innovative author whose romance fiction is geared towards those who not only want to temporarily escape from the daily routines of life, but also delve into social taboo as it pertains to interracial relationships. Tiana creates a painting with words as she guides her reader into the lives of each and every main character.

Her first book series entitled “Cross Climax” tackles interracial dating, marriage, and sexual relationships head on without any false bravado. “Cross Climax I” and “Cross Climax II” allow the reader to dive headfirst into short stories that are packed with seduction, romance, and heart-pounding punch. The two novels in conjunction lead to a surprising, but fulfilling conclusion.

Her third novel, “The Slave Master’s Son,” transports readers back to a time and place where interracial relationships were not accepted by the dominant society. The novel delivers a scintillating, historical account of one family’s struggles to deal with love, lust, and consequences.

About this author edit data
I was born October 10, 19** in good ole Queens, New York. I had a difficult childhood because I developed severe eczema and most of my schoolmates shunned me until high school. Books became my friend.
Early in life, I found myself fascinated by the macabre. I would actually set my alarm if one of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock, Rod Serling or One Step Beyond episodes was coming on late at night. These kept me up til the wee hours of the morning.
Being raised in Amityville was the icing on the cake. I went to see the actual “Amityville Horror” house and swear it literally took my breath away.
My biological mother died when I was 13, the age when puberty reared its ugly head. Needless to say, I was a wife and mother by the time I was 17, divorc…more

Wealthy, Famous, Sexy, Successful, The “Boyz” Got It Going On … Or So It Would Seem.
There are no siblings more charmed than the Wilson brothers of Ladera Heights, California. Fine and famous pro golfer Mason has money, respect, a beautiful, loving wife and two wonderful teenage children. Claude’s the most successful realtor in the “Black Beverly Hills.” And handsome, carefree “baby boy” Torino, who runs big brother Mason’s club, Foreplay, can pick and choose the honeys he wants to share his time and his bed with. But beneath the surface of ideal lives are secrets that could shatter three perfect dreams and shake a family to its core. Legacies of loss and obligation, of tragedy and madness, threaten everything the Wilsons have worked so hard to achieve, exposing deep, raw, and devastating wounds that an outside world cannot see — wounds that can be healed only through honesty and love. From the phenomenal author of “The Chocolate Ship” comes a gripping and powerful novel of passion, commitment, intrigue, and family that will not be easily forgotten by anyone who gets lost in its pages.

How to improve your writing, Three tips from great Writiers.

When George Plimpton asked Ernest Hemingway what the best training for an aspiring writer would be in a 1954 interview, Hem replied, “Let’s say that he should go out and hang himself because he finds that writing well is impossibly difficult. Then he should be cut down without mercy and forced by his own self to write as well as he can for the rest of his life. At least he will have the story of the hanging to commence with.”
Today, writing well is more important than ever. Far from being the province of a select few as it was in Hemingway’s day, writing is a daily occupation for all of us — in email, on blogs, and through social media. It is also a primary means for documenting, communicating, and refining our ideas. As essayist, programmer, and investor Paul Graham has written, “Writing doesn’t just communicate ideas; it generates them. If you’re bad at writing and don’t like to do it, you’ll miss out on most of the ideas writing would have generated.”

So what can we do to improve our writing short of hanging ourselves? Below, find 25 snippets of insight from some exceptional authors. While they are all focused on the craft of writing, most of these tips pertain to pushing forward creative projects of any kind.

1. PD James: On just sitting down and doing it…
Don’t just plan to write—write. It is only by writing, not dreaming about it, that we develop our own style.

2. Steven Pressfield: On starting before you’re ready…
[The] Resistance knows that the longer we noodle around “getting ready,” the more time and opportunity we’ll have to sabotage ourselves. Resistance loves it when we hesitate, when we over-prepare. The answer: plunge in.

3. Esther Freud: On finding your routine…
Find your best time of the day for writing and write. Don’t let anything else interfere. Afterwards it won’t matter to you that the kitchen is a mess.

How to write a novel in 100 days or less

How to write a novel in 100 days or less
by John Coyne

How many times have you finished reading a novel and said, “I could have written that book.” You know what? You’re right. All of us, I believe, carry at least one novel around in our heads or our hearts. Novelist Toni Morrison put it this way: “If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
Writing a book is no easy task. Nevertheless, every day another book is published.
In 1996, according to Books in Print, 1.3 million book titles were in print. The number of books published in 1996 alone was 140,000 in the United States. So, why not you?

What you need
I believe that if you can write a simple English sentence (after all, that’s what Ernest Hemingway wrote), are alert to the world around you, and want to write a salable novel — really want to, not just kind of want to — then you can do it. I don’t think anybody ever became a writer by going to a workshop, reading a book, or even reading this article. Writing comes from something internal in a writer. However, this article will save you time, point you in the right direction, and help you write a novel in 100 days or less.

TOP TEN TIPS FOR WRITING A NOVEL

Top Ten Tips for Writing a Novel

1.Create a Schedule: If like many of us you lead a busy life with a hundred and one things you could be getting on with at any given moment, then it is of vital importance to schedule time in which you can work on writing your novel without being disturbed.

2.Work in an environment which inspires you: Don’t kid yourself, these things matter! If you plan on spending chunks of your time in a room, being imaginative, then you want the space you are in to reflect this; have your favourite photos and pictures up on your walls, stick some motivational quotes on post it notes for you to find and try if you can get a space with a view.

3.Be Observant: Let your day to day existence, people and that which goes on around you to be a source of inspiration. There is an endless supply of stuff happening out there for you to think about, write about and put your own spin on.

4.Invest in a Dictaphone: Making a habit of having a Dictaphone on you at all times enables you to never let those great ideas just slip away. They are relatively inexpensive and can be downloaded as mp3 files so you can review on your iPod at your own leisure.

5.Just Write: Don’t be too critical and judgemental of yourself. Or at least, learn to switch that off so that you focus entirely on creating. Once you have produced a sizeable amount, then review it as you have more context and therefore may look at what you have written in a different light.

6.Don’t hold back: Sometimes, you may get the urge to avoid writing something as it feels too emotional or close to home. As a rule of them, it is these moments which tend to make up the best bits so just go for. Trust me!

7.Writers block: If you find yourself in the position of just not getting anywhere with your writing, then take a break. Switch off from it completely for a while, go out and get some fresh air, socialise with some friends for a while. In a nutshell, have some you time. In my humble opinion, more often than not writer’s block stems from trying to force success and overworking yourself.

8.Get into the mindset of your characters: This really is important in making your narrative believable and characters well rounded. It’s always a good idea to do some research relative to your character’s career or interests to understand how they feel in would behave in certain scenarios.

9.Don’t just write when you’re happy: This may sound like a peculiar one but I would avoid only writing when you are ‘in the mood’ and feeling good. Obviously when you do these periods can be very beneficial and productive but so are other moods as they can provide variety and more dimension to your writing. So the next you come from work having had a bleak day and feeling utterly frustrated with everything, you know what to do . . .

10.Save regularly: This is an obvious one but there’s nothing worse than seeing thousands of words which you’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into get flushed down the toilet because you forgot to save. Always backup your work via something on the lines of a memory stick to prevent this from ever happening.

Writing skills you need.

Building on Your Idea

These are a couple of popular methods you can use to add flesh to the bones of your idea:

  • Free writing: Open a new document or start a new page, and write everything that comes into your head about your chosen topic. Don’t stop to edit, even if you make mistakes.
  • Brainstorming: Write the idea or topic in the center of your page. Jot down ideas that arise from it – sub-topics or directions you could take with the article.

Once you’ve done one or both of these, you need to select what’s going into your first draft.
