    in Books

    .Roxanne Linden learned the hard way that it’s one thing to be overweight, a lesbian and a cheater, but it’s quite another to take your stepsister, Ayana Linden, as a lover. Forced into a conventional lifestyle with her fiancé, Mark Watkins, Roxanne’s humdrum existence is interrupted when Ayana resurfaces. Roxanne knows her world is about to change, but is she fully prepared for what happens next? The sisters’ reunion uncovers the truth about Ayana, who is exploring her options with Marlon Fields, while trying to end her volatile relationship with her married lover, Jasmine Willowbrook. This reunion also rekindles sexual urges that lead Roxanne into the arms of flamboyant bar owner, Royal T. Roaman. Royal shares a shady past with her fiancé, and once Mark becomes aware of Roxanne’s latest indiscretions, he is unwittingly trapped in a betrayal he believes is of his own volition. As all of their lives and relationships begin to intertwine, truths are unearthed, infidelities come to light and futures are threatened. If they aren’t careful in their search for LOVE & HAPPINESS, Roxanne, or one of her lovers, may lose everything—including their life.

    Seeds of Magnolia author Bill Miller

    in Books

    Austin was a wealthy man. He owned a large plantation in Hardeman County, Tennessee and a larger one in Tunica County Mississippi.


    •         He was an attorney and Circuit Court Judge. Later he was elected and then reelected several times to the Tennessee Legislature.


    •        People that are familiar with the history of Tennessee and Mississippi probably know about something about Austin Miller. Early in the 1800’s he was pretty much responsible for relocating the line that separates the two states. He insisted that the line should be further south in the state of Mississippi. He was right. Today, South Memphis is in Tennessee rather than Mississippi in part because of him.

    1.            Austin had a slave named Sophia. He bought her and her mother to be his housekeeper. He didn’t want Sophia because she was just a little tot, too young to work or do anything other than play. He saw her as being more of a pest than an asset. Yet, he ended up with her and her mother. Austin was single at the time, and there really wasn’t much to do around the house as far as housekeeping is concerned. Sophia played with three white girls that lived nearby. They were from well-to-do families and it didn’t matter to them that she was a slave. Looking at them, it was pretty much impossible to tell who was white and which one was the slave.

    Sabrina Eubanks brings Brooklyn Boys to Author Talk

    in Books

    Sabrina Eubanks will take us on an exciting ride with her book, Brooklyn Boys.


    Growing up in hard and gritty Do-Or-Die Bed-Stuy had been a tough and often perilous road for Justin Wilde and his brother Tony, but they refused to succumb to life’s vicious blows. Left as virtual orphans by a father doing a terminal bid and a mother who became strung out and gave up, they were left to fend for themselves. Since well-paying, gainful employment had shut its heart to these young men with minimum skills, they quickly find their niche in easily gotten drug money; slinging on the corner for a flashy old school dealer named Cicero Thomas and making undesirables disappear. They are known on the streets as Cutty and Crush. 
    Life hasn’t been easy, but they’ve always been smart. When they’re made an offer they can’t refuse by Prometheus Burns, an upstart from Trinidad with primo product, they start on a course for a takeover that will leave a major dealer bodied and put them in position to have the venerable status of true drug lords; but coups are not always easy. Sometimes a war must be fought to reign supreme, but Cutty and Crush are more than ready to rise to the occasion with their old friends Shade and Josie to help clear the path. 
    The kingdom of the original gangster and old regimes are at hand. The time has come for Brooklyn Boys.

    in Books

     


    S. Chameleon: Hey world, I’m your girl S. Chameleon. I’m a wife and mother of two striving to accomplish all my goals. I live by the moto “Act Like a Lady Think Like a Boss”. Currently a writer of Urban Fiction but not limited to that one particular genre and I’m a lover of my craft.She is the author of Devious Deception.


    I’ve been writing for five years independently. I started with just my own personal projects then that grew into me starting my blog where I began writing raw uncut short stories @schameleonbooks.blogspot.com. After receiving such a large following with my blog I decided to try my hand at penning a full novel independently.  I began researching to get the information that I needed locally to get my novel published as well as starting my new author page on face book and starting to connect with other authors in the industry. While in the process of publishing my first independent novel I was introduced to G Street Author NeNe Capri after which we spoke and I submitted information to her publishing company that’s an imprint under G Street Chronicles and was welcomed with open arms. At that time I put my personal project on hold and signed on with Boss Lady Publishing and now here I am. I’m a very outgoing and friendly individual that’s always looking to connect and I have a witty since of humor.
