TAHDAY IS THA DAYYY!! In These Streets

I am too HYPE to post today’s new release from my good friend (and shoulder I cry on about my writer woes) SHELLY ELLIS!

Shelly has been a staple in my reading life since I read my first Gibbons Golddigger novel. Been rocking with her ever since. Her characters are REAL (no fairy tales here!) and her stories are JUICY. Shelly writes the kind of books that you need a dark beverage and some popcorn to really set the mood.

So it is my pleasure to celebrate THE FINAL PLAY, the final installment of The Branch Avenue Boys series, one that is near and dear to my heart. I feel like I know Jamal, Ricky and Derrick and I am sad to see them go. But what an ending!

Note that this is book 3 of a series! Buy all three, then read them in order! Happy reading!

Read IN THESE STREETS (Book 1) and KNOW YOUR PLACE (Book 2) and THE FINAL PLAY (Book 3)

*~* 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.

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.
