Every day I browse the Amazon Kindle Bestsellers List. Nope, I'm not looking for my novels on there just yet, but I like to gander at the authors whose words inspire and who excel at their craft.
However, the list of African-American novels and authors in the Romance category has me puzzled. I'm not seeing Beverly Jenkins work, neither Brenda Jackson nor Alexandra House. Where are Tiffany Patterson, Aliyah Cole, or any of the other bestselling ...Read Full Post »

While browsing through my Facebook post earlier today, I discovered a Treasure trove of authors of colour, some of them I never heard about or read. I don't have to tell you guys on here, that I went wild on Amazon and got myself a whole new library of BRAN (Black Romance Author Network) members work.
Then I got to thinking, because even after I bought myself a whole heap of novels by auhors of colour, Amazon still insisted that I be directed ...Read Full Post »

I once had a routine, where annually, I would go off by myself for a day just to enjoy my own company. I haven't done that in quite some time, being busy with the job and my writing. Well that's about to change in a big way.
It is never a good sign, when someone decides to sign off.I mean all the way off. That signing off, normally comes after a long run of being taken for granted and neglected. It's like the welcome mat unravelling under your feet ...Read Full Post »

Today I celebrate the date I arrived on planet earth; and while I reminisce I can't help quote William Shakespeare.
"What's past is prologue" is a quotation from his play The Tempest, and to me aptly describes all those emotions hidden inside of us, that we tightly hold on to, for what ever reasons. Some good, most not so good and detrimental to our moving forward in life.
As I sip my coffee, I'm also thinking about ...Read Full Post »

I'm on a roll. After my health scare yesterday, I awoke to a series whizzing around in my head. Four characters, one location, seven hundred things going on.
I pulled out the trusted plot board and my colourful sticky notes and began to plot according to Mary Buckham's guides. So far, I've plotted out two novels. There are so many notes written in so many places I can't even begin to see the progression of this.
I'm one o...Read Full Post »

When you are in the battle with your health, some days are just not what they crank out to be. Here I was healthy and hearty at 11.05am and by 11:30 I was flat in my bed.
Chronic pain and never ending cycle of fluctuating blood sugars has baffled my doctors for quite some time. Unlike diabetics, my blood sugars drop to dangerous levels when I eat. But for an unknown reason, the levels spike when we least expect it.
My medi...Read Full Post »

Just had to let you guys in on another wonderful series that I stumbled upon on KU (Kindle Unlimited). It is Vickie McKeehan's Pelican Pointe series.
If you like ghosts and drama with HEA's run grab this series and take the time to read every last novel. I have to let you know you have to read this series from the first novel, Promise Cove, or else you may be lost in the fog.
The characters ...Read Full Post »

As many of you know, I've found new authors that I absolutely love on BookBub. One of them is Jennifer Madden, who owns the Military Romance and Suspense genre.
Her Embattled/Lost and Found series reveals emotionally flawed men and women, all combat veterans, who have been either physically or emotionally modified by their combal experiences.
My absolute favourite character she has created is John Palmer, a no-holds-barred...Read Full Post »

So, I'm on a wanderlust, reading and writing binge again. Heading off to read at least 400 novels this year, so far I'm up to 139 and some of them have been extraordinary.
Last year, I discovered several new authors to me, J.M. Madden, Evelyn Adams, Tess Thompson, Kait Nolan, S.J. McCoy, Mary Crawford, Makenna Jameison, Ana E Ross, Marie Force, Carly Phillips, Jill Saunders, Colleen Thompson, Mary Buckham, and my newest 'must read everything she has written' Vickie Mc...Read Full Post »

RED SEA MOMENT
Please don't get me angry, you won't like me when I'm angry!
Those famous words made popular by the fictional character Dr David Banner, the mild speaking medical doctor who through no fault of his own, turns into the 'Incredible Hulk' whenever he gets angry, epitomizes in many ways my personality.
I try to help as many people as I can, without asking for anything in return, because this journey of life is not about us, it is about each other.... Read Full Post »
