“Never sleep with the divorce attorney. It’s the oldest cliche in the book.”
I smiled, knowing this conversation was very slowly moving into an inppropriate exchange between client and attorney. But also not caring.
I haven’t been sharing anything about my new project because I wasn’t (and still am not) sure it was going to take off… but sometimes you just have to put your author pants on (or take them off? Authors don’t like pants!) and stick your neck out there. So I’m sharing a snip today. Hope you like it!

I hate the word goals. And I have hated the word RESOLUTION my whole life. And it’s not just the word. Nothing puts me in a deer-in-headlights stupor than the practice of listing out things I want to do in a year. I have NO IDEA, people.
But… everyone’s doing it. And I don’t want it to seem like Im not thinking about my future, because “what I’m gonna do next” is always on my mind.
Thanks to the Perpetual Page Turner for hosting this survey every year! It’s time for the annual review of books! I have 125 books to look over, so… let’s get this party started! Number Of Books You Read:126 Number of Re-Reads: 1 Genre You Read The Most From: Probably romance
I thought I would try out this VLOGGING thing, something new to dip into for the new year. Soon to be chock full of new info about books I’m writing and reading and my thoughts on writerly bookerly things… but for right now, I wanted to post a (terribly lit) introduction and take advantage of a good hair day. I recorded this three times so I was definitely not coming back another time to do it again because I didn’t like the lighting. Lessons learned! There are two videos posted on my newly launched AuthorlyBookerly channel. It doesn’t have one of them fancy newfangled custom URLs yet and it won’t […]
Hello Blog! It’s been awhile! I’d love to say I’ve been busy, but I haven’t. Just livin’ life you know? But what better reason to grace your feed reader than to celebrate the release of a black romance by one of my #authorbaes, Te Russ! I have read Noble Redemption (sucked it down in one gulp, actually!) and this novel is some of Te’s best work. I’ve read her backward and forward and it’s been such a pleasure to watch her take a step out on a limb and totally kill it in the black romance game! Enough yammering. Let’s get down to bidness! About the Author: Té Russ found […]
Yesterday, I spent some of my day following the habits of an author that I consider successful in the indie author biz. Some may know her, some may not, but she’s a machine and pretty well known in a few circles and is one of the few authors that’s taking the Indie publishing biz and making it her b#tch. She walked away from traditional publishing and decided to do things her own way. Looking at her long list of accomplishments made me ponder all of the things that I (and other black authors) could be doing instead of standing at the door of Big Trad Pub with our hands on our hips […]
Unedited. Subject to change. Copywritten so don’t copy me. No pub date as of yet, but this is what I plan to work on this November. “Do you know what I do here? Do you know what this law firm is about?” Sylvia rolls her chair back from the desk and stands, then walks to the enormous window covered in floor length sheer white drapes. She pokes her finger between two sheers and peers out into the Atlanta skyline. “At Kincaid Family Law, we bring men like Warren Jackson to their knees. Go after assets. Find hidden money.” She turns from the window and strides back to her desk and […]
Mid-Event Survey: 1. What are you reading right now? Just finished STORMY WEATHER by Paula Woods, Book two in the Charlotte Jones Detective series 2. How many books have you read so far? This is book two 3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Hoping Book 3 is even better than 1 & 2 4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Nope, I live alone, so other than needing food and drink, I’ve been fine. […]
