#TeamLove Presents The L.I.P.’ers Club!

They’re now opening it up to everyone!

L.I.P.’ers Club Holiday Announcement

L.I.P.'ers Club Full Package

Due to the overwhelming reception to the Waiting to Breathe series, #TeamLove has come up with something we think can further connect readers with Love Belvin this holiday season.

As the Love’s Improbable Possibility series (L.I.P.) was gaining steam and so many of you took to it and more specifically, Azmir & Rayna, we were in search of a way to better connect with those Love affectionately calls “L.I.P.ers.” #TeamLove wants a way for readers of Love Belvin to be able to represent the brand in their cities and towns for the holidays. We’ve finally come up with the L.I.P.’ers Club! This is an exclusive club for lovers of the L.I.P. series. Those belonging to the club would receive the Love Belvin and L.I.P. swag listed below.

Regrettably, because of cost constraints and to maintain the exclusivity of the L.I.P.’ers Club, #TeamLove has limited the number of those eligible to join to 100. By electing to join the L.I.P.’ers Club you will receive the following:

1. A.D. Jacobs t-shirt

2. A.D. Jacobs keychain

3. Love Belvin wine glass (y’all know she enjoys a good glass of wine while writing or reading)

4. Autographed paperback copies of all four books in the L.I.P. series.

5. A short update (story) on Azmir and Rayna mailed to your Kindle account.

Again, membership is being limited to the first 100 to join and the cost to join is $75. If you’re interested in joining, please email Info@LoveBelvin.com.

As always, THANK YOU for your support!!


Happy Holidays,



Plot-driven versus Character-driven

A random private thought I recorded a couple of weeks ago…

Recently had a conversation with my Author Bae, who pointed out the difference between plot-driven stories versus character-driven stories. It got me to thinking: I’ve written character-driven stories. My attraction/reason to take on stories is not about a particular event in the tale. My keen interest is the character, his/her flaws, and how those deficiencies limit them in life—more specifically, how it impacts their ability to flourish in a romantic relationship.

I believe the reason so many say, after reading my stories, they feel like they’ve just been on an emotional roller coaster is because I grasp the storyline from the core of the characters and put that against various life events. My focus is on exposing the flaws of the characters then redeeming them as best I can. This is why your feelings about them vary throughout their journey. One minute you like them and a few scenes later you hate them (I just hope that by the end of the journey you like them again).

This is why there so many elements to my stories, so many angles. It’s not just a monotone read. My stories are vibrant, heavily-detailed, and sometimes points are repetitive to emphasize a particular trait of the character. Plots are plentiful in my works, but the characters—hero and heroine—their development is the focus. This works for me. People are what interest me, drive me, and thrill me. Mixing their characterizations with familiar life scenarios is what you enjoy. At least I do. ***Kanye shrug***
