Leslie’s Curl & Dye now available on audio **everywhere**- wanna listen FREE?

Format: AudioBook

Guys. GUYS! I am so happy to finally announce that the audiobook version of Leslie’s Curl & Dye has been distributed WIDE, meaning you should be able to listen wherever you purchase audiobooks — including libraries, but you have to REQUEST the title so the library can purchase it for their inventory!  



To celebrate (and also to pump up listens and reviews…) I have some FREE audiobook codes to give out. Yes, you heard me say FREE…. and yes, there’s a catch or two:

A. You have to absolutely enjoy the audiobook and extoll its praises and virtues on every site available- amazon, goodreads, audible (okay, I’m kidding about the HAVE TO but I’d most certainly appreciate it if you could!)

B. The codes are ONLY redeemable at Author’s Direct, which is how my distributor, Findaway voices, manages their free codes.  They do have an app for IOS and Android and again you’re welcome to leave a review at any of the sites you use frequently.



I’m working on mind reading, but I’ll admit, I’m not very good at it. So you need to HOLLA AT A SIS by replying to this post, sending me an email ( OR sending me a tweet  or a message on Instagram (@author_dlwhite)!  Also send me a good way to get the code to you, and I’ll send one out to you right away. 



A whole lotta nothin’. And really enjoying it, to be really quite honest! I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading– I am almost at 100 books read for the year. I had a moderately stressful year after going going going since 2015, so I really needed to take time to decompress. Reading has been EVERYTHING, always my first love.  I’m sort of getting back to writing, trying to have a little holiday ditty (maybe two?) for the upcoming season. One of them brings back one of my fave couples, Preston & Angie from A Thin Line.  I had more that I had cut when I converted this story from fanfiction to original fiction and it happens to take place over Christmas and New Year. So, I am reworking it and I hope to have a sassy, sizzling holiday release! 

Thanks so much everyone for your continued support of my indie author career. I love being able to tell stories!

Since the launch of Leslie’s Curl & Dye Audiobook version one month ago, copies are virtually flying off the shelf!  This is a fun read/listen and I really enjoyed writing Leslie & Kade!

If you’re not an audible subscriber though, you’ve been missing out! Thought I would post up an exclusive chapter of Leslie’s Curl & Dye and let y’all know where you can buy or listen to the book: 



Black Girls Must Die Exhausted: A Novel by Jayne Allen Genres: African American, Contemporary Women, Fiction Buy on Amazon Goodreads “Black girls must die exhausted” is something that 33-year-old Tabitha Walker has heard her grandmother say before. Of course, her grandmother (who happens to be white) was referring to the 1950’s and what she observed in the nascent times of civil rights. With a coveted position as a local news reporter, a “paper-perfect” boyfriend, and a standing Saturday morning appointment with a reliable hairstylist, Tabitha never imagined how this phrase could apply to her as a black girl in contemporary times – that is, until everything changed. An unexpected doctor’s […]

*BOOK BLITZ*  Sweatpants Season- Danielle Allen

by Danielle Allen Genres: African American Romance, Contemporary Women ABOUT THE BOOK He has a big…smile.   It was the first thing I noticed that day until he stood. His grey sweatpants hung off his hips and I didn’t want to look. I really didn’t. I’m a feminist. I don’t believe in objectifying men. I don’t catcall men. I don’t ogle the bodies of men. I don’t view men as objects of my affection rather than complex people with feelings, wants, and needs of their own. I don’t treat men the way society often treats women. I treat men the way I want to be treated as a woman—with respect! So, […]
