Latrivia Nelson at Republic Coffee


Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to share an awesome video that was done at the best coffee spot in Memphis on July 15th, Republic Coffee.  We had been in the discussion for about two hours before this video was taken, so I have on no make-up and I’m pretty tired.  So, look at your own risk!!!

Have a great day,

Latrivia

“What was Renee to Royal? Why friendship matters.”


I just finished speaking via facebook to a reader that I correspond with frequently over the Internet and a great post came to mind.  Friendship.  Many of us take the word, the notion, the relationship for granite.  However, can you imagine what it would be like not to have a friend?

My reader said that she had her sister, who was close and special to her.  I have my girls, a wolf pack of women who are smart, powerful and cunning, but they are also die-hard friends who are honest and true. 

Royal didn’t have that in Dmitry’s Closet, except through Renee.  We see that their relationship, along with Cory’s, keeps Royal grounded and a little privy to the things going on around her.

How many of us have friends that we can count on?  How many of us are lacking emotionally because we don’t have friends?  When my husband took me half way across the country and dropped me off for about seven months while he went and fought wars thousands of miles away, I would call my friends everyday.  Before we got unlimited, I would rack up a phone bill that would rival any 16-year old girl.  That foundation is key.  Your girls are key. 

What are you thoughts?

Drop Date Pushed Back to July 15th Due to Printer


It’s a sad state of affairs for me ladies and gentlemen.  The book is complete, but the hard copy format will not be ready until July 15th.  Please world, do not be angry with me.  I’m working around the clock to provide some benefits in lieu of this horrid blunder.  Last time, the drop date was off by a month and half.  So, I’m happy to report that it’s just ten days later.  For many, it’s ten days too long.  So, I’m offering this:

However, you can still pre-order on my site (www.latrivianelson.com) starting tonight or on www.dmitrysroyalflush.com

Pre-order and you will receive a free PDF copy of the book for you to read until your book arrives.  I made the announcement tonight and have received great feedback from the readers.  Thanks so much for you all who have understood.  And I’m so blessed to have so many supporters. 

The good news is that the book will still be available on Kindle on the 5th!  You can also purchase the PDF format without the hard copy for $5 on www.dmitrysroyalflush.com.  So, if you don’t have a Kindle, like to read at work or home or prefer to laptop or desktop to pick up books, you won’t miss a beat.  For my hardcopy readers, the printer says that it could very well be back next week, but they’ve given me that date to be safe.  So, I’ll keep you updated. 

For all of those who receive the PDF, please send me your thoughts through the blog, facebook and email to let me know what you think (Latrivia@LatriviaNelson.com). 

And please Pray for me that I don’t jump off a cliff:-(

Xoxo and all that jazz,

Introducing the Cover of My Newest Book – Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen


Let me be the first to say how proud I am of Kandace Tuggle,  our exclusive designer at RiverHouse Publishing, LLC for her fabulous work on the new cover for the much anticipated Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen book from the Medlov Crime Family Series.  We had a great conference call with the girls a few days back, where I told them that this would be coming.  Now, here it is as promised.

For me, when I see the cover, I know that the entire book is almost complete.  I always save the cover until the end to make sure that it really encompasses what the story is all about – mostly because I tend to deviate.

So, ladies, here it is.  We also have the site (www.dmitrysroyalflush.com)  , Twitter (HisRoyalFlush) and very soon Facebook. I hope  that you all are having a great day.  And don’t forget the drop date of July 5th.  More information will be coming out in the next few days.

Talk to you soon.

Xoxo and all that jazz,

Latrivia S. Nelson

Synopsis:

For Dmitry and Royal Medlov, money doesn’t equal happiness.  Forced to leave Memphis, TN and flee to Prague after a brutal mafia war, the couple nestled into the countryside to raise their daughter, Anya, and lead a safe, quiet life.   But when Dmitry’s son, Anatoly, shows up with an offer he can’t refuse, Dmitry is forced to go back to the life he left as boss of the most feared criminal organization in world.  Consequently, the deal could not only destroy the Medlov Crime Family but also Dmitry and Royal.     

 Royal hasn’t been the same since she was attacked three years ago.  Where she used to be a sweet, innocent girl, she’s now a jaded, bitter woman, who can’t be coddled by riches and luxury.  However, a reality check is in store for the pre-Madonna when Anya’s new teacher shows up with her sights set on stealing Dmitry, and Ivan’s old ally shows up with sights on killing him.  Can Royal save them all?  Will she?

With a family in such turmoil, the only way to survive is to stick together.  Read the gripping tale of a marriage strong enough to stand the test of time as Dmitry realizes that he has the best cards in the house as long as has a Royal Flush.

Smooth Operator: The Sex Appeal of Dmitry Medlov


Latrivia, why did you create Dmitry in the manner in which you did?” Calee, Jacksonville, FL

Okay. So Dmitry Meldov is a criminal who has served time in a serious Russian prison. He’s a killer who has notches on his belt two times over. He’s fighter with preference for the serrated-edged knife but is not afraid to shoot you at will.   He is tatted up and dressed down.  He’s a crime boss and gun runner.  He’s a global criminal wanted by several countries.  And he’s a serious millionaire. 

These are the things that make him bad. BUT He dresses in only the best suits, and even when he puts on jeans, he tends to heat up a room. He wears a signature cologne that makes women swoon to him, flock to his body and beg him to choose them. He drives the best in Italian and German engineering. He lives in mansions around the country. He is rich, plays violin and has the body of a supersized Michelangelo. Did I mention that he is seven feet tall, blond, blue-eyed and speaks at least two languages.  He’s musclar and sexual but also bright and trully a thinker.

Dmitry is a smooth operator. He knows how to balance his unsavory characteristics with things that no woman could ignore. While developing his character, I did have some help. I turned to the men in my life who were toxic, for lack of a better word. Everything that they said, did, worked towards was about sex, control, money and power. Don’t worry ladies, my husband isn’t included in that number, but I will say that having these men around keeps you grounded. You realize that there is always an angle.

Dmitry had a serious angle and he’d been working it for years. (1) he knew his size was intimidating, (2) he knew his beauty was captivating, (3) he knew his money controlled his environment, (4) he knew his men controlled the underworld, (4) he was brilliant and unafraid, (5) he was daring and unique, (6) he did what he wanted. Of course, it took like six men combined to develop Dmitry and that will be for a later post, but I will tell you that it was exhausting….but well worth it. When you combine all of the things that make a man bad and good together to create a Frankenstein type character, you get perfection. I’m not speaking about my writing skills, I’m simply speaking about the creation. We want men to be beautiful, want them to be virile, want them to be carnal, want them to be rich, powerful and faithful…and we’ll only get all of those things in a book. Dmitry is our guy. Dmitry is your guy. He’s a smooth operator.
