malemodel1I have a small shop; I’ll admit it. But I listen to each and every suggestion with a serious ear.  Lately, I’ve been getting emails from readers wanting several things (1) one website (2) one blog (3) fan page on Facebook.

 

Great news is that I’m working on each one of those items.  Bad news is that it’s going to take me at least a month to get it all done.  However, you can’t eat an elephant in one big bite…you know that whole saying.  So, the first step that I’m taking to streamline everything so that you don’t have to run all over the Internet looking for me is our blog.
In the past, I’ve found that not all readers are created equal. Some like to talk about the Medlov family and some like to talk about The Lonely Heart Series and others like to Ivy & Nicola.  So to keep the discussions separate, I always started a new blog for a new book.  However, now that the books have become 15 in total, then I think I need to bring us all together.  Power in numbers, right?

 

So that’s exactly what I’m doing.  Starting today, all blogs will be posted on one site.  www.latrivianelson.wordpress.com.   This will allow us the opportunity to keep all conversations together and maybe even provide more insight.  Now, I will not deactivate old blogs, because your previous shares on there and they are priceless, especially comments from  our late, great Rhonda Scales.

 

I hope that this new move brings us all closer together to share and be merry.
XoXo and all that jazz,
Latrivia S. Nelson

After the explosive blow up in Prague, the Medlov men are burdened with the task of returning to business as usual. Dmitry heads to Angola, Africa to help fuel a civil war, and Ivan heads to London to murder the Irish gang, The Sulfux Boys. Only nothing can return back to the way it was before the boys faced Boss Smirnov. Dmitry accidentally unveils Elsa’s plot; Ivan and Arie do the unspeakable, and an old enemy becomes a new ally.

Plots thicken and alliances form in the latest installation of The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 5 by national bestselling author Latrivia S. Nelson.

This is by far one of my largest short stories at 245 pages.  But it was fun to write.  Dmitry is a man who knows how to take charge of his organization and he’s proven that, but this story is about the shifting in the atmosphere.  There are alliances that are being formed because of personal interests.  The scum is going to cling to other scum and the good guys (if you can use that terminology with these books) find each other and work on strategy.  We see how depraved our dear Ivan can be and we see Dmitry teetering on some serious affection for Elsa.  This is the transitional story that puts V6-12 in gear.  I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

 

It’s been a long time coming, and to all my faithful fans, I do apologize.  Life always gets in the way of my writing plans.  It makes me remember a saying, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”  During the last quarter, I had planned to drop several books, including V4.  My expectations, however, did not include my husband nearly dying in sleep, kids with insane homework assignments and several family trips, outings and visits.  Not to mention, RiverHouse opened a new office dead smack in the middle of the financial district of Manhattan (NYC).  I have been buuusssyyy.

The good news is that Adam is doing much better.  You don’t realize how special they are until they are nearly taken from you , right beside you.  For that, I am so thankful to my dear sweet savior, Jesus Christ.  The office is working out great in New York and will offer even more opportunities for readers and authors alike who follow RiverHouse and the family visits were awesome.  I saw my cousin for the first time in ten years and it was amazing.  We are even moving to the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area next summer. 

But with everything going on, my writing slowed to a pitiful crawl.  Now, I’m back.  And as normal after being pulled away from my work, I am on fire.

I have a lot in front of me.  Saving Anya and The World In Reverse are due out both on Christmas Day.  It will be out no later than December 31st.  Please be patient with me.  If I pull this off, this will be the biggest project that I’ve ever taken on.

Now on to Volume 4 and Book One of the Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 4

Now a widower, Dmitry Medlov’s life has completely changed. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, his aspirations quickly move from more money to more power. Only the power he seeks is held by the commanding and elusive Czar of the underworld, Boss Smirnov.
When Dmitry successfully talks the underboss and the all-knowing eye of the underworld, Khalid, into arranging a meeting between he and Boss Smirnov, he has no idea what troubles he is about to face. There are secrets that will be exposed in Prague that will forever change his young life again, leading to a decision that will rock the underworld for good.

Meanwhile, back in London, the city is buzzing about the deaths of the entire board of directors of Dmitry’s newly acquired business, Hutton Industries, minus the company’s former front man, who was involved in a gruesome home invasion that left him blind, deaf, mute and paralyzed.

With no witnesses, leads or proof combined with the botched attempt on his own life during the horrid chain of events, Dmitry is looked over as a person of interest by Scotland Yard and is given carde blache to turn his new private company into his personal money laundering hub right under the public’s nose with the help of his Africa girlfriend, Oxford University senior and business genius, Elsa. And it’s just in time for his new secret alliance with the leaders of a powerful paramilitary sect led by Elsa’s father in Angola, Africa.

Dmitry’s new found power creates a checkmate for his ambitions to be boss but puts a target squarely on his back by not only organized crime heads around the world but also by his own brother, Ivan. Secret alliances are formed. Money is exchanged, and a definite war is looming. Only no one is willing to give up as much as Dmitry is to be king.

By popular demand, Latrivia S. Nelson is proud to announce a compilation of the first four of the twelve volumes from the Medlov Crime Family Short Stories Series.

Dmitry Medlov wasn’t always a billionaire crime boss. His rise to the top was a painstaking process that took many years and many trials and tribulations. From breaking out of prison on a twenty-year bid in Russia to trafficking guns in the back alleys of London and finally toppling a dynasty run by a blood-thirsty Czar, this seven-foot tall, bad boy had to earn every penny.

Along the way, however, he also learned about a woman’s heart, the pain of losing a sick wife, the drain of taking care of a psychotic kid brother, the knowledge of finding out that he was a father and pride of building an empire all before his 25th birthday.

You asked for it, and you got it.  To continue our awesome discussions on the Young Dmitry Medlov and all of its volumes, this blog has been created.  Hopefully, we can answer all the questions that you have about your favorite characters: Dmitry, Ivan and Davyd.  And you can get to know the back story on Arie aka Ari and Dorian.

However, as we move forward, you’ll also get to know a host of other entertaining characters including Elsa, Boss Smirnov, Khalid, Vladimir and so many more.

Just to keep you up to speed, here is the synopsis for each of the three available volumes. 

Volume 1:

There just isn’t enough time for Dmitry.

America’s favorite fictional crime boss, Dmitry Medlov, had a very macabre start to his larger-than-life existence. In the short story series, The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov, volume one explores the inner-struggles of a rogue teen and his rocky rise in the feared organized crime group, the Vory v Zakone, before he became a billionaire underworld Czar.

Accidentally released from prison at the age of 18, Dmitry Medlov has 48 hours to assassinate a Ukrainian drug lord and get both he and his brother, Ivan, on a plane to London, before the authorities realize that the teenage hit-man is on the loose.

With the clock ticking, he hikes back to Moscow through a snow storm to discover that life has gone on without him. When he left, he was a feared earner for his underboss, Kirill. But as he returns, he finds that many things have changed including the lives of the people he cared for the most.

Baby brother Ivan isn’t a little boy anymore, and he’s showing signs of being a heartless sociopath. Following in his big brother’s footsteps, this bad boy can’t be trusted around his two most favorite toys – automatic machine guns and hunting knives. Trying to keep Ivan in line proves to be an on-going nightmare for Dmitry as he realizes that his brother might eventually be the end of him.

And while love was never on the agenda for Dmitry, the woman he cared deeply for has recently gotten engaged to a common wife beater. When Dmitry finds out, there might be one murder in Moscow for free.

While most kids are learning how to drive and going off to college at his age, Dmitry Medlov is cutting his teeth on murder, sex and mayhem.

This coming of age story is not like any other. Understand why the Medlov men became global threats through their feared brotherhood in the twelve-volume series that will take you jet setting around the world.

Volume 2:

It has been one year since their escape from Moscow, and Dmitry and Ivan Medlov are struggling to keep their small organized crime family together in London. Used to a communist culture, the boys are exposed to the new opportunities of a capitalistic society while trying to compete for business in the gun-trafficking industry.

Ivan wants more recognition and girls. As his behavior becomes more erratic and his temper becomes more dangerous, the sixteen-year-old bad boy experiences firsthand what it is like to live in another person’s shadow.

Dmitry wants more knowledge and power. When he’s not reading, strategizing or selling illegal guns, he’s working towards bigger and better relationships to get the Medlov name in the right circles. And the perfect storm is brewing at his doorstep. His contact with The Free Right, a women’s rights group, needs a large shipment of guns for their clandestine operations. However, she is also interested in what the blonde assassin is like in bed.

Drawn in by his beauty and charm, Emma introduces him to the head of her organization on the eve that the USSR falls. Only, the head is also the billionaire business mogul, Lady Catherine Hutton. Now with more access to munitions and more opportunities to get rich, Dmitry has an awful decision to make which will lead him one step closer to losing his brother and one step closer to becoming the world’s most notorious underworld boss.

Read the second volume in the Medlov Crime Family short story series that tells the intimate story of how one man built an empire that became untouchable.

Volume 3:

No crime boss has ever been as brilliant, beautiful and deadly as young Dmitry Medlov, and this Red Fella proves his affirmation in Volume 3 of The Chronicles, the longest of the short-story series.

Two years after meeting Lady Catherine Hutton and after fleeing Moscow to London, Dmitry has found the secret weapon to securing riches beyond his wildest dreams through a false marriage with British royalty.

Their quid pro quo arrangement was supposed to be a short-lived farce designed to give Lady Hutton one last thrilling sexual escapade before she met her untimely demise. However, in the process of teaching Dmitry how to be a real gentleman and making Catherine feel like a young woman again, the curious couple accidentally develops deep feelings for each other.

When Catherine realizes that Dmitry is in it for more than just the money, she leaves him a gift that rocks the foundations of the Medlov Crime Family – her entire estate worth over one billion pounds.

Dmitry’s new fortune, however, comes with a high price. The board of directors of the company he now owns wants him dead; one of the Vory elite “gifts” him the daughter of an Angolan war lord, and his brother, Ivan, falls for a woman who is as much of a sociopath as he is. There is also the matter of the media who declares him London’s most eligible bachelor.

While trying to steer away from the attention he’s getting country-wide with his new fortune, he finds himself drawn to the beautiful African scholar, Elsa, a student at Oxford who might just be able to help him stay in control of his multi-national corporation and remember what it’s like to actually “like a girl.” Passion strikes when the two are forced to live together while she reorganizes his business, but Dmitry wants more than sex from Elsa. He wants her home-country contacts.

Read the eleven-chapter, page-turning novelette that tops its two predecessors (Volume 1 & 2) with more action, romance, sex, murder and mafia.

I know to so many this project is just a short story. It’s one of 12 short stories in the series about Dmitry Medlov before he met Royal.  But my Medlovian women (oh that rowdy group of gals) are expecting excellence in each and every chapter.

In reading over my work on last night, I just wasn’t satisfied with the story yet. 100 pages of a short story that is supposed to leave you cursing me for more.  Don’t get me wrong. It’s fire, but it’s not ON fire.  So then, the debate happened.  I questioned if meeting a deadline was better than meeting YOUR expectations with my work.  And the answer came up, unequivocally NO.

This is why I’m pushing the book back one week. The 100 pages that we present to you need to knock your socks off, or at least make you want to take off your…

flatecover-4Some of my readers have expressed to me that forging documents and getting out of a maximum facility prison (in Russia) seems highly unlikely.  And as you remember, Dmitry did just that to get his freedom when he was barely 18 with the help of outside Vory v Zakone members.  I had actually gotten the information after researching bribes that had been made in Russian right before the fall of the USSR.  Well, today in reading some Internet news, I found an article that supports my story (in America) that I’d love to share with you.

Check this out…

Authorities are searching for two men who they say were mistakenly released from a Florida prison earlier this year.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Authorities say two men convicted on murder charges were mistakenly released from a Florida prison with forged documents.

Everyone should recognize where their strengths and weaknesses are.  It makes you a better person.  I have a lot of strengths but my weakness is that I want so badly to give readers a book until sometimes, I forget to give myself breathing room for life.  Simply put, I look at a calendar, say Oh, I can get a book out by then,” without ever really taking into account things like root canals, kiddie homework, crazy office work and Trivi’s occasional writing block.

When I started V6, I knew exactly what I wanted, but after I got more than half way done, I hated it.  It didn’t capture me at all. In fact, it didn’t capture Dmitry. So I threw out the entire story and started again.  Now, I’m feeling it. I like the story and I like where it’s going, but when am I going to be…

A year after Dmitry Medlov makes a deal with his lover/business partner, Elsa, and her father, a general in the Angolan MPLA to provide all of their munitions, he hands over the reigns of the agreement to her fully in order to take on more lucrative and legal ventures in Milan, Italy.
Wrapped up in a huge development deal to build a new skyscraper, he turns his attention away from the Medlov Crime Family to strengthen the newly acquired, Hutton Industries.  Only his trust in those whom he has put in charge is quickly found to be misplaced.

 

His brother, Ivan, is building an army right under his nose to distribute and sell drugs at his clubs through the very men he was commissioned to kill and his new king maker’s son, Vladimir is helping to destroy him one secretive deal at a time.

 

Meanwhile, Elsa and Ivan’s wife, Arie, wage war on each other, not only over territory but also over Dmitry’s affection.  When Dmitry discovers all of the backstabbing schemes going on around him, he is forced to make life-changing decisions.

 

Read the sixth installment of national bestselling Author Latrivia Nelson’s The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov as the famous Russian brothers finally reach the point of no return.
