Urban Christian Books released my latest book, The Legacies on July 29, 2008 and I am very excited about the project. The book is getting decent reviews. Visit my website, www.MichelleLarks.com and check them out. The book is available at all major bookstores, including Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com and will be available at BlackExpressions.com on August 3rd.
Keeping Misery Company is available NOW! Today is the official release date. To my friends who've supported me by purchasing the book, or posted words of encouragement over the past couple of weeks, Thank You. I really appreciate it!
I still have work to do, the most challening part happens today, selling the book. If you're so inclined, please repost my bulletin to your friends, or if you know someone who reads, please spread the word.
Keeping Misery Company is available everywhere for $14.99. If you still haven't ordered your copy, what are you waiting for? Stop by your favorite bookstore and pick up a copy of Keeping Misery Company.
Here is my latest review of Keeping Misery Company:
Keeping Misery Company
Urban Christian Books
Trade Paperback – October 30, 2007
God never put more on you than you can bear and Ruth is holding God to His Word. Ruth has lived her entire life in the shadow of her parents, Bishop and Queen Esther, as the poster child of Preachers kids. After over 30 years of marriage, she realizes that her husband was stepping out on her. Ruth woke up from the haze that had become her life to realize that life threw her a drastic curve ball.
Keep Misery Company is an exceptional read. The storyline is full of twists and turns while dealing with everyday issues – homosexuality/AIDS, forgiveness, teen pregnancy, adultery, homelessness, and drama in the church. The character development is on point as the reader can easily relate with the realistic characters. Keeping Misery Company was a combination of The Color Purple and Diary of a Mad Black Women – running the emotional gamut while illustrating God's ultimate sacrifice. Definitely one of the BEST and ORGINAL CHRISTIAN FICTION books this year!
