Happy New Year!

Posted 1 January, 2019 by DLWhite in Writers Write 0 Comments

Alright, that’s enough of that. *HAH*

Seriously, I am wishing as joyous a year possible for you and all those you call your loved ones!

I won’t make this a long post, but since it is a first brand new day of a brand new month of a brand new year, I should bring myself to this blog and say hey and talk about 2019 a little. 

I am not one to make long drawn out goals. I don’t do resolutions (a few years ago I did anti resolutions, things I was going to stop doing. I liked that, might bring it back at some point!), and you won’t see me planning out my entire year in this blog today. In my journal this morning… oh yeah, I decided to start journaling… I wrote that the beginning of a new year scares me. TBH, the beginning of a new month scares me. It’s just… I’m more of a continuous kind of gal. Starting over all the time is jarring to me. When I open Book Report on the first day of the month, my heart skips a beat. It starts at zero and I have to work my way up again. Every. Month. 

That’s tiresome to me. And daunting. So, nope there won’t be a new year, new me. Same old me, figuring out what works and then STICKING WITH THAT BECAUSE IT WORKS. Not changing things up because the 8 changed to a 9 and now all of a sudden I am a different person. #thatsnothowitworks 

Anyway, I do have some things I want to accomplish, some personal, some bookish, some writerly. I tweeted and facebooked some so if you follow me there, you’ve seen the list. I’m simply too lazy to retype them, but suffice it to say– better me, lots of reading and writing. DASSIT. Everything after that is gravy, man. 

This was a supremely lazy post, but when have I ever tried to be fancy for ya’ll?! 

I sincerely hope this year is all that you want it to be and more! Til the next time. 



*~* NEW RELEASE!*~* SECOND TIME AROUND, A POTTER LAKE HOLIDAY SHORT

*~* NEW RELEASE!*~* SECOND TIME AROUND, A POTTER LAKE HOLIDAY SHORT

Second Time Around turned out to be exactly what I wanted. A lot of sweet romance, a little bit of heat, and characters that aren’t “rock the runway” gorgeous or “male model” fine… though I do love me a good lookin’ character. I longed to write about regular degular schmegular people… and I felt like that could happen in no other place but Potter Lake. 



**Review** In These Streets by Shelly Ellis

**Review** In These Streets by Shelly Ellis

Toss in the trappings of a life that, in their own ways and for their own reasons, they’re trying to leave behind, plus the women who seem to want to “rescue” them, and In These Streets is quick-but-packed read about three men who learn that sometimes you can’t count on anyone but those who’ve known you the longest and the best.

I am already poised for book two, because in true Shelly Ellis form, this book leaves you wanting more, more, more!

Grab some popcorn and a drank and sit down with this book… you won’t want to stop until the end!



Same Time Next Week & A Thin Line Going Out of Print…

Same Time Next Week & A Thin Line Going Out of Print…

These books mean a lot to me and hold more than a few good memories. They provided a back list for me when i needed it, however I find myself increasingly embarrassed at the low quality of the writing and formatting, and more specifically the editing. I may go back and do some serious editing and rewriting and offer them as freebies on other platforms, but for now, they’re coming down.

Review: BLACK GIRLS MUST DIE EXHAUSTED by Jayne Allen

Review: BLACK GIRLS MUST DIE EXHAUSTED by Jayne Allen

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, […]
