Hello friends and readers! Just a quick note to make an announcement about two of my books- A THIN LINE and SAME TIME NEXT WEEK.
Many of you who have been following me for some time know that these two books hail from my fanfiction days. Same Time Next Week was my first NaNoWriMo project and after it had been complete for a few years, I converted it to an interracial erotic romance. It really never sold like I thought it would. A Thin Line was a fanfiction story I started and never finished. I converted this book to a black romance. This book was not a big seller, either.
These books mean a lot to me and hold more than a few good memories. They were my therapy while writing them and 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. Plainly put, I want to be proud of my work and these two don’t measure up anymore. 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.
I have already retired the paperback editions of these books and marked the eBook versions down to 99cents. They’re in Kindle Unlimited until December 6th. On December 7th I will unpublish them. If you’re interested in purchasing or reading them, NOW IS THE TIME. They won’t be available for sale again!
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!

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 […]

I recorded this episode with Tasha and Katie (BadStarMedia) a few weeks ago and have been waiting on pins & needles for it to be up! It was a fun conversation about all things writing, soup to nuts… how I got started, what keeps me going, being a control freak and doing everything myself, plus the experience of recording audiobooks. It’s a ton of fun and these are two of my very favorite people, so I hope you’ll give us a listen!
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!
