I met Mina on Twitter and grabbed her debut, How to Discipline Your Vampire shortly thereafter. If you don’t follow Mina on Twitter @MinaVaughn, you should. After all, it was the incredible amount of voice she fits into a scant 140 characters that made me run to buy her debut. I had no idea what I was getting into when I opened her first book, but I quickly realized this: once I was in Mina’s universe, I never wanted to leave it again. The same compelling, hilarious voice that had enthralled me on Twitter was only magnified in How to Discipline Your Vampire, and I began to yearn for the next book entry in Mina’s DOMME-NATION series, How to Reprimand Your Rock Star. Well, it just arrived, approximately five days ago. I have already torn through it, and because I despise spoilers, all I can say is this: buy it for yourself, then tune into the show. Seeing talent is one thing; listening to the lovely voice behind it quite another
Mina Vaughn is an international woman of mystery and a shoe whore with a heart of gold. When she’s not writing her unique brand of silly smut, she’s plundering Sephora for any pin up girl makeup she can find. Mina’s debut novel, an erotic comedy entitled HOW TO DISCIPLINE YOUR VAMPIRE is about a punishment-seeking vampire who meets a quirky Domme with a serious role play fetish, available now from Simon and Schuster’s Pocket Star.
The next installment in the DOMME-NATION series is How to Reprimand Your Rock Star, which has just released on July 21st! Get your copy here:
In his book, Respect Your Choices: Finding Balance in Success, Vaughn shares his methods to creating a life that is rich in every way possible. Focusing on the three areas of life that must be refined to bring about positive outcomes - Purpose, Respect, and Choices, he identifies the framework upon which a fulfilled existence is built. Respect Your Choices offers thought provoking lessons, actionable plans, and personal experiences, and then makes clear that respecting your choices will help you find balance between your outlook and outcome.
If you change your perception, you change your outlook and once you change your outlook you change your outcome. Your outcome can be either positive or negative, as it’s relative to you!
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

"I AM THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE"
Kenyatta Nicole Vaughn, is a Candidate for Illinois State Representative for the 6th District. I agree with her statement that everyone should have a "Voice" in their government and live in a neighborhood they are proud to call home! Like so many citizens, they don't really believe their "Voices", concerns and issues are not being heard!
Kenyatta Nicole Vaughn, is a Candidate running for Illinois State Representative for the 6th District to bring about a needed change! Kenyatta, has a "Vision" that politics can truly address. A "Vision" that will address the concerns of the real working class. A "Vision" for the Whole District not just a hand full! Without a "Vision" we'll forever be asked to accept half a loaf, a few slices, a few crumbs and eventually nothing at all!
Tune in...Call in and Speak with the Candidate for Illinois State Representative of the 6th District Kenyatta Nicole Vaughn
