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!
I’m suuuuper excited to announce that Dinner at Sam’s is now available at Audible.com! Over the next few days, you’ll also see it pop up at iTunes and Amazon. EXCITE!
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!
Today, I’m featuring Rae Lamar, author of BLUR, DAWN OF ARIS and THE ARIS EFFECT, among others including BECAUSE MY HEART SAID SO, A FRIENDS TO LOVERS ANTHOLOGY.
The ripple from this scandal reached far and wide, including my writer’s brain. I started to think about this from the perspective of an involved teacher… no, someone with a bit more power.
Like a Principal. What if she made a preventable, regrettable mistake?
What if she paid for that mistake with her marriage, her family, her friends, even her life?
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.
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.
