You are invited to an online screening of the novel "Soul Baby" by author, writer and producer Joseph H. James, Jr. In the multimedia section, you will be able to listen to the free audio of the prologue, view the sultry music video of one of the theme songs sung by Broadway star ( original Rent cast) Byron Utley featuring top model and actress Brigid Turner and view the soulful book trailer. Soul Baby is available in paperback and all the major eBooks formats. Please check out the beautiful website at:
Guess what! Valentine's day is coming up, and to celebrate I'm giving away two of my Kimani or Arabesque novels, winners' choice. To be part of the draw, just drop me a line here, and leave an email or other contact or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll draw for winners on February 15. Give yourself or someone else a gift of romance for Valentine's! (The stamps from Trinidad would be pretty cool, too.)
We read and discussed Captured by Beverly Jenkins a few months ago and it's nominated as the best historical of the year over at:
If you think it's the best historical on the list, please vote for it. Let's spread the word.
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.
