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.

by DL White Genres: African American Romance, Contemporary, Romance Format: eBook Source: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ibooks, Kobo Good morning and happy Writing Wednesday! It’s a super day, and I’ll tell you why: my holiday short, Unexpected, is live and kicking! I have never kicked off the holiday season so early, but I really needed it, and I hope others that need some holiday cheer will find it in my cute and fun little ditty. A few people may recognize this short from a story I posted on my website a few years ago. It’s been niggling at me because… whatever happened to Will and Saidah?? So I took it […]
I was thinking about SAME TIME NEXT WEEK recently, a book I don’t talk much about because it was my foray into interracial romance and it pretty much flopped. Not that the book isn’t good (because it is), but I didn’t and still really don’t know how to market this book. So while I am writing, I am trying to pop up some interest in a title that hasn’t received much attention but definitely deserves it.
Happy Indie Author Day, 2017! Believe it or not, this is my FIRST Indie Author Day. I heard rumblings about it in years before, but never paid attention or celebrated it. The libraries in my city don’t participate so it’s not a Real Life thing, strictly in this online world. I figured I should jump in this year and celebrate, since my feet have planted firmly in self published soil. A few authors are talking about what this day means to them. For me, one word resonates. Freedom. The idea of contracting with a publisher and agreeing to all of their terms, the slow publishing cycle,not having control over […]
I decided to do a lil TuesdayTease of Leslie’s Curl & Dye, since it’s Tuesday and the book is out! Snatch it up Amazon, or read it free with your Kindle Unlimited subscription. Enjoy! I drank my iced coffee, looking around the room that was a shrine to his old life. “You probably get asked this a hundred times a day, but do you miss the court?” He started to nod, then grimaced. “I mostly miss being on a team, traveling, playing for TV cameras, whatever. I was kind of a ham.” “Yes, you were,” fell out of my mouth before I could stop myself from saying it. But he […]
