Leslie’s Curl & Dye – “Not all my crazy is on display.”

Leslie’s Curl & Dye – “Not all my crazy is on display.”

by DL White Genres: African American Romance, Small town romance Now available in print and ebook at Amazon.com!  http://books2read.com/curldye  KC Tamera untied her client’s cape and removed it, then hung it on a hook near her chair. A middle aged woman with a short salt and pepper afro stood and handed Tamera a few bills, telling her to keep the change. “Thank you, Ms. Jackie. See you next week?” The woman nodded and walked out of the shop, smiling as she passed me. Tamera used a towel to wipe down her chair, then tapped the back of it. “KC, come on over here. I’ve been staring at your hairline all day and I can’t take it anymore.” I stared at Tamera from across the room. Even Leslie stopped twisting hair to bounce her gaze between me and Tamera and back. “Uh… me? Come over there?” “Yeah, you. Come over here. I’ve been wanting to snap some candid shots of you, but you need a lineup and your fade is sloppy. Let me fix you up so you look good.” I glanced at Leslie but still didn’t move. I didn’t trust Tamera to not jack my hair up. As if she could read my mind, she laughed. “If I was gonna mess you up, I’d break into your house with some clippers. I’m not going to make you look bad. I promise.” She tapped the chair again, swiveling it around toward me. It was just… there. Welcoming me to sit. I groaned, then got up and slowly loped across the shop to Tamera’s station. I lowered myself into the chair and sat still while the cape floated over me, then draped around my shoulders. “I promise, I’m not gonna mess your hair up, KC. You want to look good in these pictures, so you can win this election, right? But since I have you here…” 



*EXCITE!!! * Cover Reveal: The Truth of Things by Tasha L. Harrison

*EXCITE!!! * Cover Reveal: The Truth of Things by Tasha L. Harrison

From the author of THE LUST DIARIES, a new novel set to release on September 5, 2017

“Where I come from, cops aren’t super heroes.”

Photojournalist and wedding photographer, Ava Marie Greene, doesn’t ever want to fall in love and not in the I-just-haven’t-met-right-man kinda way either. Ava is a hopeless romantic, but too much hurt and disappointment has her hiding behind the camera. Through her lens, she sees the truth of things, the difference between real and fantasy, and she thinks she has a good handle on it until she has a run-in with her friendly neighborhood policeman, Levi Raymond.

“Where I come from, cops aren’t super heroes.”

Photojournalist and wedding photographer, Ava Marie Greene, doesn’t ever want to fall in love and not in the I-just-haven’t-met-right-man kinda way either. Ava is a hopeless romantic, but too much hurt and disappointment has her hiding behind the camera. Through her lens, she sees the truth of things, the difference between real and fantasy, and she thinks she has a good handle on it until she has a run-in with her friendly neighborhood policeman, Levi Raymond.

“Not all cops…”

A tad arrogant, and a bit of a cornball, Ava knows that this Levi could make her second-guess every thought she ever had about cops. She tries to make it clear to Officer Friendly that she doesn’t need saving, but he when Ava finds herself on the wrong side of the law, will he be the hero she needs or toe the “thin blue line?”

#SampleSunday: Having a reaction – Leslie’s Curl & Dye

#SampleSunday: Having a reaction – Leslie’s Curl & Dye

I wanted to share a snip of something I’ve written this weekend, so grab a cuppa joe and settle in for a Sample Sunday!

This project is titled Leslie’s Curl & Dye. It is contemporary black romance, set in a small southern town. Tropes are Second Chance Romance, Enemies to Lovers, Small Town Romance.

Dueling salon owners with a history that hails back to their college days must overcome a long held animosity and work together to save the small town of Potter Lake, Georgia from a corrupt city government.

Author Spotlight on ME at ElizaDavidWrites

One of the things I love and admire about this Indie Biz is how we support and push each other. We all win when we’re all out front, our voices being heard and our art being consumed. I stumbled on Eliza David just a few short months ago and she is a (petty, vicious, delicious)TREAT! Eliza was kind enough to feature me on her blog today! I recently read her ah-mayyy-ziiinnngg novel The Follow (ya’ll know I’m a stone cold sucka for a rock romance) and I gave it high praise. So happy to have ‘met’ Eliza… thank you for giving me a little corner of your world today! Click the banner to visit ElizaDavidWrites and read all about meeeee!
