Important Announcement Re: Double Switch and L.V. Lewis ~ #ASMSG #RetiringPenname

There have been more and more inquiries about the next books in the Ghetto Girl series, and I’ve finally made a decision about them.I'm Sorry

I’m going to have just rip the Band Aid off and give this to you straight, no chaser: I will not be completing the Ghetto Girl Romance Quadrilogy. This means, Double Switch, the Jada and Nate story will not be completed, nor will its sequel. I have chosen to make Exit Strategy the completion of the story and the duology was published as a boxed set as the series swan song (see below).

IMG_0456I have also recused myself from the Den of Sin series franchise, and the boxed set I published with Melissa, Holley and Ambrielle will be my final Den of Sin story. A great many of you will be disappointed with this development, and for this I am deeply sorry. However, my life as a sister, an aunt, and  mother have taken on new meaning in the last several months, so my life an as author has had to take a back seat to these roles indefinitely.

Erotica/erotic romance was never my genre of choice, and for all intents and purposes I kind of fell into it when the Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever book took off the way it did. So, it’s probably safe to say that my final book as L.V. Lewis has been written. I have already begun the arduous process of rebuilding my brand under another name. I will still write literary fiction, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction just under different pen names and these will all be shared with you via my L.V. Lewis brand as recommendations.

The Block will continue to exist, just as a place to feature many authors’s works, including my own under my new pen names. This blog will also exist to feature other writers’s works and reviews from prolific readers. I hope that as I re-invent myself, I will find many of you again along the way who loved my writing as L.V. Lewis and will be willing to give me a shot as a new writer.

Please know that this decision is final, barring another author with a similar writing style offering to buy the brand. This is a very difficult thing for me and I hope you will understand and give me your full support as I transition.

Thank you all so very much for reading my words, for believing in me when I was an upstart, and for continuing to read, review and recommend what I’ve written. I will always love you all for your support. Peace and Blessings.

  1. Do what is right for you. Thank you for writing 50 shades of Jungle Fever. Loved it. Good luck and I will follow in your other books

  2. I am extremely disappointed and angry. We all have lives, families and responsibilities. I have a child with Autism and I still have a career because I have to put food on the table, etc. To leave us hanging is very selfish. If you can come back and write under another name than you can finish what you started. I will be deleting your books from my Kindle and will not be following you any longer. You could have chosen to just wait a little longer to release the rest of the series but not one other author that I follow would pull something like this. Goodbye L.V. Get your life and priorities straight and remember the fans that put food on your table by purchasing your books in the first place.

  3. You are a very talented writer LV whatever you write will be good and I can’t wait to see what you do next.

  4. Thank you for a fantastic story, it was a fun ride! Looking forward to more great things from you!

  5. You are a wonderfully talented author. There’s no doubt in my mind you’ll find success in whatever you write next and that I will enjoy it. I, for what it’s worth, continue to admire not only your work but your journey.

  6. Good luck honey. I know how hard this decision was and what you had to consider to get to it. Your journey has simply taken a different path, sometimes in life that happens. Lots of hugs and loves and wish nothing but the best for you in the future.

  7. I know what you had to consider to come to this decision. Sometimes the path we begin with is not what we intend to end with. Wishing you nothing but success in the future.

  8. Sometimes life happens and we have to make choices. I’m sorry that you’ve had to do this but good things await you in the future. I have a feeling your fans will connect with you again!

  9. Hi Ms. Lewis,

    You do what your heart calls for you to do. God will bless you on whatever road you take. I am a loyal fan and will follow you no matter what you write. Good luck and God bless.

  10. Ms. Lewis, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the Jungle Fever series. It was a great read. One must do what is best for her family and herself. Be blessed in your future endeavors and I am looking forward to your new journey in fiction.

  11. Wow Robin…angry much! I’m quite sure Ms Lewis had a life before your dollars fed her & her family “rolls eyes” get a grip chickie!

    Ms. Lewis…lots of luck to you. I wish you nothing but the best. We all have priorities and FAMILY is the most important one. I will continue to read your books, I just found Jungle Fever and love it so I’m quite sure your other works will be just as wonderful 😉 Many Blessings
