Greetings!Survivor I Changed the Rules Part 1 available via kindleTherone Shellman the elder of four children who were taken away from their mother when he was four and thrown into the NYC foster care system. In and out of different homes he and his sister went. He was a child thinking about adult issues like survival and having to look out for his younger sister. At the age of fifteen dissatisfied with the dysfunctional parents who adopted them both, and a school system he felt was biased he turned his back on both and sought the streets. From hustling at fifteen, to pulling stick ups at sixteen, Shellman found himself at the age of seventeen being sentenced to ‘four to twelve” years in prison.In an honest and brutal way Shellman tells his life story from a powerless child to a power crazed and misdirected youth, survival of the fittest on the streets and in some of the roughest prisons in New York State. Throughout the story you witness his search for self peace and spiritual growth as he sought to balance his troubled life which would ultimately lead him through real life threatening situations where by chance and a little wit he would overcome time and time again. And finally some way some how an awakening rose up within him to change his life and write stories which would help others. "Survivor" I Changed the Rules is not just a memoir or biography, it is a testament about how strong the human spirit is and the ability within all of us to rise above the chains which imprison us.

Secrets of a Kept Woman by Shani Greene-DowdellThe truth shall set you free!Shayla, Rhonda and Gladys have been best friends since high school. Thicker than thieves, they have shared a lot over the years and it is their loving bond that has kept their tattered spirits alive. These ladies use their strong sisterly bond to coach each other back to sanity daily.Shayla Wilson is married one of the most influential players in the east Alabama drug ring. Though her lifestyle is lavish, she's unhappy in her marriage and dealing with her fly-by-night husband, Titus. An unexpected visitor at her doorstep might give her more than she asked for and she won't be sure if she can say no. Gladys LaQuinn has had it up to her neck with her cheating husband and after deciding to throw caution to the wind and go away for a weekend vacation...alone, a run in with her ex could be the life and death of her spirit. The way he awakens her mind, body, and soul leaves her with a lot to consider. Rhonda Jackson has lived beneath Shayla's wings for years, from being the second best majorette in high school, to the last chosen by men, to being an underrated data entry clerk by profession. She is unfulfilled, envious, and feels inadequate, but most of all she is struggling with a secret that will no doubt rock the very foundation this trio was built on.Every friendship is just one dark secret away from shattering it into a thousand pieces. They say the truth shall set you free -- but will it?FREE SHIPPING FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY at www.shanibooks.com

Being an avid reader of authors such as Deja King, I would love for you to read the first three chapters of my novel, Secret Betrayals. Full of sex, lies, and drama, Secret Betrayals is a fast paced, drama filled read. Check out the first three chapters at http://harrietwilson.webs.com/secretbetrayalsexcerpt.htm and let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.
Just in case you’re not our friend on Facebook, Twitter or on our mailing list, we wanted you know that “It's Official-Uptown Has Landed” and should be on the shelves at bookstores near you! We say should, because, well, lets just say, sometimes they don't make it out of the stockroom in time for their big debut. This is where we need your help. We’ve heard from many friends & readers that they can't find Uptown in their local bookstore. Then we discovered that it's only available by order in most "non-urban" chains (We know exactly what THAT means, and who THEY are.) If you go to look for Uptown and it's not where it should be, first, please ask a sales associate to find it for you. And if they tell you they don't have it, be sure to let us know (even if they offer to order it for you, which is fine)! We need to know the store name and address so we can report it to our publisher. They are looking closely at early sales numbers (a lot like that first weekend at the box office for movies), but if the books aren't out they can't be purchased, so we need to be on top of this! So consider yourselves deputized as the Uptown Patrol! A book launch is still both exciting and scary, but we're strapped in for the ride. We thank you for continuing to take the ride with us and we look forward to your comments about Uptown. “Prepare for a steamy, provocative, sexy, turbulent read…” "Uptown has all the ingredients that offer ardent readers a satisfying read: relatable characters we either love, or love to hate; contemporary issues that are pertinent to those of us who care about our people and our heritage; and a strong believable plot infused with passionate conflict---ALL set in Harlem, a place which still holds the aroma of Langston Hughes' dreams: "What happens to a Dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun . . . or does it explode?"---Angela Reid, President of Imani Literary Group "...smart and compelling. ...a novel that is both relevant and entertaining." -Publishers' Weekly "We women battle so much in life, and at times, we give our pasts a home in our present rendering our futures bleak with no room for sunshine. DeBerry and Grant crafted a story that speaks true to the bondage women refuse to let go...Uptown captures its readers in the chaos of family secrets, taking them on a rugged emotional course full of passion and suspense. A provocative read with a lesson on forgiveness, and the beautiful unfolding of self-discovery."-SistahFriend Book Club As always, thank you for your friendship and support.V&Dhttp://www.amazon.com/Uptown-Novel-Virginia-DeBerry/dp/1439137765/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266081476&sr=1-4
