Then I meet her.

It’s #BellLetsTalk day. My mental health journey.

Whenever #BellLetsTalk Day comes around, my posting and tweeting finger gets ready. That’s because with every view of the video in the link below, Bell will donate 5 cents to mental health initiatives.

I applaud Bell for initiating so many conversations about mental health and the stigma surrounding it.

My own journey with mental health has been an ongoing one, and it’s something I work at every day. I first experienced some hardship after the birth of my first son. I didn’t notice it coming on, but knew I was being plagued by dark thoughts and horrible nightmares. For quite some time, life continued. I thought I was okay, just tired and adjusting to having a baby. If anyone had told me I was suffering from post-partum depression, I would have scoffed. “Me? I’m not depressed. I’d know if I was depressed.”

But here’s the thing. You aren’t always the first one to realize it.

My husband pulled me aside one day and told me he thought there was a problem, that I wasn’t myself. In truth, I wasn’t. He was gentle and patient as he explained the things he’d seen, the things he’d heard me say. And then he suggested we visit our family doctor together.

As it turned out, I did have post-partum depression. The knowledge shocked and saddened me. How did I not feel it coming on? Shouldn’t I have seen the red flags in myself? Our doctor explained it was perfectly normal for me not to notice it in myself. It wasn’t a failing. It didn’t mean I was “broken” or “wrong.” I just needed help.

I sought treatment and am so glad I did. Since that day, our family has battled other mental health related issues as well. We’ve always been fortunate in that any stigma we’ve experienced has been minor and mostly self-inflicted. Of course, we were fortunate. So many others encounter horrible reactions and lack of support.

When your mental health is suffering, it is so easy to think there’s something wrong with you. However, the fact is our society needs to be better educated on mental health awareness. We need to learn to support each other better, which is why #BellLetsTalk Day means so much to me and so many others.

We talk openly about mental health in our family now. We have all struggled with it. We have all seen doctors and have had to have difficult conversations with each other. And I’m happy we did. If I saw someone suffering, as my husband did with me, I would have no problem counseling them to get professional help. The world can be a lonely place, and we are constantly surrounded by difficult imagery and messages. I know I still have to work hard to maintain good mental health, especially in the current political climate.

I sincerely hope today’s efforts will help everyone to open up dialogues in their homes and workplaces, so that we can build better support systems and help those who need it. No one should have to suffer alone in silence. Let’s talk.

One night. One too many drinks. One mistake. That’s all it took to derail my marriage.
Now, all I can do is beg for a second chance. To try and redeem myself in a bid not to lose the love of my life.
I’m determined to use every second, every moment I have to show my wife how much she means to me—to rebuild the trust I shattered.
But the harder I try, the more I start to realize our marriage had fallen into a routine of complacency and misplaced priorities long before my indiscretion.
Isabelle is a strong, passionate, beautiful woman—a wife who has sacrificed so much for me. I just hope it’s not too late for us, and that I’ll be able to convince her that our love is meant to be kept.

Anything Once Cover Reveal from @AuthorMekaJames.

Anything Once by Meka James
Release Date: January 22, 2019
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Erotic Romance

Quinn has been happily married for ten years. Her relationship with Ian is built on love, trust, and honesty. At least that’s what she thought…until a four-letter word changed everything.


After finding her husband alone in a rather awkward situation, Quinn starts to question her beliefs about their marriage.

While they’ve always had a healthy sex life, it was far from adventurous. She loves her husband, and he loves her, but the revelation allows worries to mount, and insecurities to grow.

After having a candid conversation with Ian, Quinn realizes that it all boils down to one very important question.

Is she willing to try anything once?

The answer is…yes.

**This story contains discussions on infertility**
Quinn wrapped her arms around his waist and buried her
face in his chest.
“Baby, you okay?”
She nodded.
“You sure?”
She nodded again. “My legs are a little wobbly.”
He laughed, then in one swoop, bent down to pick her
up and carried her over to the couch. Quinn sat in his lap with her head
resting against his shoulder. Ian waited to see what she’d say, how she’d react
to him treating her so roughly, since he’d never been anything but gentle in
their lovemaking.
She intertwined her fingers with his and started
placing soft kisses on his neck. “I want to try.”
He rubbed his thumb across her knuckles. “Try what?”
She sat up to look at him. “More. Different ways. I’m
willing to give anything a shot, once.” She stopped and smiled. “More than once
if I like it.”
Ian sucked in a breath. “Really?”
Her tongue darted across her bottom lip before she
sank her teeth into it and nodded.
“Sweetness, you don’t have to do that.”
His statement was met with a rolling of the eyes and
muttering under her breath. Even after all these years, his Spanish was only
slightly less rusty than when they’d first met. He managed to pick up the words
“kind-hearted” and “idiot” during her quiet rant before she took a breath and
placed her warm hands on either side of his face.
“I know I don’t ‘have’ to do this. The last twelve
years of our relationship has proven that.”
Any rebuttal got silenced by the hard narrowing of her
“I want to do this. To explore new things.”
Sincerity radiated through her every word. This was
not the outcome he’d ever expected, but the possibility of getting to have new
experiences with his wife was an opportunity he wouldn’t let go to waste.

Merry Christmas, and a huge thank you to all!

I can’t even believe another holiday season is upon us, never mind a new year!

Honestly, most days, I still feel as if it’s October. December has been a blur as I’ve struggled to keep up with work commitments and family ones as well. However, despite the odd bit of stress, 2018 has been a good year for me and so much of that is because of you, my readers and friends.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has followed and supported my work in some way. I appreciate each comment and share, every book review and every sale. My readers give me breath and wings, and allow me to return to each writing project with enthusiasm and excitement.

My blogger friends, I can’t thank you enough. You do what you do purely out of love, and your work is so appreciated in the romance and writing communities. Bloggers are my rock stars, and I love you.

To all the author friends who have generously shared their time and platforms with me, a hearty thank you as well. There is a reason I came to this community with anticipation. It’s because the people are good and kind and supportive, and so many of you have proven this. I can only hope I’ve offered you the same love and camaraderie.

Merry Christmas to you all! I wish you health, happiness and peace for the new year!

Okay, 2019. Let’s do this!

I dart through the clubhouse, breaths quickening with each step. Back in the house, I take the stairs two at a time. Racing into my bedroom, I dig out a pair of well-worn jeans, slip into them, and transfer my cell phone into a pocket. I pull on socks, then root around in the bottom of my closet for my hiking boots and lace them up. They are the closest thing I own to motorcycle boots. With one foot out the door, I pause, considering one additional accessory.

You think he’s hiding something. Better to be safe than sorry. Especially given Kort and the other missing women.

Reaching between my bed and nightstand, my fingers sweep across the four access keys of my gun vault as if I’m playing a piano piece. As the last button in the combination depresses, the side of the safe pops open. Grabbing my compact Walther PPS handgun, I drop the single stack mag, checking it for bullets before jamming it back in and racking the slide. I locate my inside-the-waist holster in my sock drawer and slide it just behind my right hip, securing it with a belt. The gun slips in and once my loose tank top gets pulled down, the weapon barely prints.

Digging my wallet out of my purse, I slide my driver’s license and concealed carry permit into my back pocket. Leaving my bedroom, I clomp back to the clubhouse, grabbing my mother’s leather jacket and helmet off two pegs on the wall next to the French doors.

An end to one of my books. A possible new beginning.

This past week, I received the rights back on one of my books. I won’t go into why it happened, but it’s safe to say the writing was on the wall for some time. Suffice to say, a publisher and I decided it was time to part ways. I wish them well and I thank them for their support over the years.

For those of you who follow my writing, the book on which I received my rights back was Night Lover, one of my paranormals.  If anyone out there has been looking for this book, I apologize it is no longer available. For those of you who read and reviewed Night Lover, I would like to extend a huge “thank you.” Your support means everything.

So, now what? This is a question I’ve been asking myself for a while. I know I could take this story to someone else and possibly get it republished. However, I don’t think I will just yet. Night Lover was actually the first book I ever wrote.  It was the book of my heart, the one I most wanted to read. Nevertheless, I recognize it had some issues. The love story wasn’t as clear cut as some others. It was actually two love stories in one, in fact, and one didn’t exactly end happily. There were paranormal elements, in the shape of a curse and an incubus, as well as historical elements. It wasn’t linear at all. There were flashbacks, in the form of old diary entries. In short, there was a lot going on, perhaps too much.

I was so proud of it. I’d worked on it for years. Some readers told me they loved it and I am so appreciative of their response. But now I need to decide what to do with this story. I think, for now, I need to put it away. My hope is, in time, that I will be able to return to it and read it with fresh eyes. In doing so, I hope to be able to transform it into something new and wonderful.

It’s never easy closing the door on one of your book babies. I am sad about it, to be perfectly honest, but also optimistic. I’ve learned a lot since I first wrote it, and I hope to be able to use those new skills to make the story better than it ever was.

As always, thank you for accompanying me on this journey. Please stay tuned!
