Until it’s time for drinks and chats, I’ll be posting some profiles and sizzling details about the writers that will join me on the panel. Today, I’m featuring NIA FORRESTER, author of THE TAKEDOWN (and the followup, THE COME UP, both of which are fantastic reads!)
I think one of my favorite parts of the book is the letters. They let the story play out, in the words of Roy and Celeste, even though they couldn’t be in the same room. Ms. Jones recently shared a piece about how technology can affect and script communication between characters; sometimes a novel has to be set in a time and a place that makes communication difficult. At one point in the book, there’s no way for one character to contact the other, leading one to walk right into a trap, per se… the tension that that situation built was palpable and effective.
Because I have been a lazy such and so and have been knock down drag out busy with dayjob, I don’t believe that I have announced on this site that my debut novel, Brunch at Ruby’s is now available in audio! YEPPER, now you can spend time with Debra, Maxine and Renee on the GO! The book is available via Audible, iTunes and amazon.com, so if you just LOVE audiobooks, or it’s been FOREVER since you read Ruby’s or you just wanna support a sistah with one of your creddiks, give it a listen!
Good cops do exist.
Camden City Police Officer Levi Alistar Raymond has a Superman complex. He is determined to serve and protect—even if that means, risking his career to support his girlfriend, Ava Marie in making sure the cop who murdered her friend is brought to justice. Good cops do exist but if good cops stand by and allow the bad cops to harass, abuse, and kill the very people they are meant to serve and protect, they are not good cops. They’re accomplices.
“I’m the wind in your cape…”
Falling in love with a cop was the last thing Ava wanted or needed in her life, but somehow, loving Levi came to her as naturally as breathing. Keeping their relationship intact while everything in the world seems to want to pull them apart feels impossible, but she is determined to be the wind in his cape, no matter what adversity they face.

Today is #WIPWednesday but, gloriously, I do not have a WIP. Yesterday I decided that aside from a fun story for the fanfiction archive, I am done writing for publication for the year. I am tired, my brain is tired, I would have loved to publish four books this year, but my miiiiiiiiinds tellin’ me nooooooo.
Aannyway, I wanted to share a snippet from Curl & Dye with ya’ll. If you haven’t read it and need some convincing, look no further than Reading Romance In Color’s review of Curl & Dye. She enjoyed the small town but still black centered dynamic and the grown & sexy aspect of KC and Leslie’s relationship. Speakin’ of grown & sexy…
