The Sheriff - Joshua Stokes

Just dropping a note to let everyone know I am still here. Been busy marketing my newest novels 'Dumping Grounds' which I published under the name Lila Beckham and 'Beyond the Willow Tree' which was published under Susan C Beck. I also published a 'flash fiction' 8 page (mini-novel) called The Empty Room. I have also been writing! I started another novel - a sequel to Dumping Grounds. I've had many women wanting the character of Sheriff Joshua Stokes - to return. LOL, it seems they cannot get enough of the sheriff! Everything is available on Character Bio: Joshua Stokes 50-year-old Joshua Stokes is the charismatic and dedicated sheriff of Mobile County, Alabama. If asked to use one word to describe him, most folks would say, levelheaded. Women find Joshua attractive, and although he could have his pick of available women in the county, Joshua chooses to live alone. He enjoys the solitude of his 150-year-old cabin that sets alongside the Escatawpa River and was once the residence of the old Moffett Plantation’s overseer. Stokes is a spiritual man unconcerned with material things. However, deep down inside, Joshua Stokes is a lonely man who drinks too much and hides his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Stokes is known for his manners, strength, and old-fashioned approach. His dedication to the law and his passion for maintaining the pride and chivalry of the Old South make him a desirable lawman. Until next time - Y''all have a good day! Susan aka Lila

What's been going on?

What’s been going on?

I know; I look studious,

I also appear organized, don’t I. However, I can assure you that I am not...  I am teetering on the edge of a cliff and hanging on for dear life! I am the worst procrastinator in the world when it comes to telling people what has been going on in my life. Mainly because my mind is as busy as a beehive in the springtime and about as unorganized as those bees are when the hive is disturbed. Here-lately,  have been going in so many different directions that I don’t know which end is up most of the time. I wanted to touch base and let everyone know what's been going on with me. 
First off, I have published another book. This one is another Thriller set here in Mobile and I called it Dumping Grounds - it is sorta a sequel to A Murder in Moffettville. So far, it is getting rave reviews by readers, now I hope some pros will pick it up and review it too! It is published through Amazon & its company Create Space. I also used a pen name (Lila Beckham)on this one and plan to use her on more. I've submitted one of my stories to Virginia Quarterly Review hoping to get it published (Y'all keep your fingers crossed) I am anxious for everyone to read it. I just published an eight page flash fiction mini-book (The Empty Room) under the Lila Beckham persona too. It is also available through Amazon (only as e-book.)
Right now, I am trying to finish editing the sequel to She Walks the Night Winds so that I can publish it. I know I have several people who are looking forward to reading it and getting it in book form. My latest endeavor is trying to learn how to market myself and my books (LOL) not so easy for me. I have sponsored a Giveaway on Good Reads for a Signed Copy of Dumping Grounds, due to be given away on Aug 10, 2013. Good Luck if you are one of the ones hoping to win it!  Until Next Time Adieus Amigo's :)
