Yeah its that time for me too. I'm on my last book. And me without a book ant a good thing cuz then I have to fnd other ways to entertain myself and usually that ends in two ways... a funny store to tell or a sad one. lol For exp the other day I was board out of my mind so I decided to get on my computer and play songs, well I had the earphones pluged into the comeputer and as I was sanging I recorded myself to see what I sound like and girl I was getting down... will at least I tought that I was intil I rewind the tape and heard what I really sounded like without the music and beyonce, brandy and tonie broxtion (Im sure sure I just spelled her name wrong lol). Man I cant sang!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm worst then most of them people who try out for america idle. So then I got on my wed cam and lip song the songs I mean I was making the facial expressions and everthing, I 4-got to delete it when I was done and my man seen it! Girl he about died. He also tryed to put it on you tube. You should of seen us on this computer tryin to push each other off to that I could stop in b-4 he hit that send button. Lol
Spoild Rotten... Livin large is the key to happiness according to Candria "Trouble" Lewis. Expensive clothes and easy money, with good looks to match, are the essentials of her world.
On top of having all the finer things in life, she is in love with her soul mate, Dariel Daniels. He is a smooth-talkin, no-nonsense type of brotha with a good head on his shoulders. Experiecing true love for the 1st time, her life feels complete. But what happens when tragedy strikes and the only sucrity she has ever known is taken away? With nowwhere to turn and no one to trust, her life is now filled with deceit and manipulation. Hate is now her medicine, and sweet revenge is her best friend.
I just wrote what was on the back of the book. lol Cuz girl I would start telling you everything that I have read up to. (Smile)
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. Sad, but true, segregation is alive and well in the book store industry.) 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."
"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."

Jackie was the first author I read too.
Insatiable was really good
you like it so far?
Pleasure was good but not what I was expecting. If you atre looking for an erotic read, Pleasure is that but it starts slow and drags until it finally pulls you in some.
