Awwww. Thanks for dropping me a note. Yes, the sister's book is the very last of the series. Next up is Kaleb in THE HOT SPOT (August 2011). I'm glad you are enjoying the love of the Strong family as much as I enjoy writing it.
In a moment of pique and frustration Virginia wrote an open letter to Oprah, and shared it with a few writer friends who are going through the same thing we are. Now the letter has started to go viral--getting a lot of repostings and inclusions in blogs, newsletters and on Facebook, so in case you hadn't seen it, we wanted to share our plight, the plight of many black authors with you, readers who have supported us all these years. http://twomindsfull.blogspot.com.
In reality Oprah is just a metaphor--a name that might get this subject the attention it deserves. Because when you have a publication like Library Journal listing their 31 Best Books of 2009 http://ow.ly/HDU7 and the "genre" fiction list includes Street Lit --8 books but no category for contemporary African American writers, we are really in trouble.
We are trying to encourage diversity in reading--we believe books should be windows, not just mirrors...
