Y’all aren’t going to believe how good this book is.

Can you tell I’m bubbling over with excitement? I haven’t been this excited over someone else’s book since I don’t know when. Anyway, here’s the blurb:

Bounty hunter Perish Blackburn has an unquenchable need to make money. The world is a dark, dangerous place in 2075, a place where only the strong and the wealthy survive. Perish is strong, but she wants to do more than just survive. And to do that, she needs money. Those without money are little better than slaves, a fate she is determined to avoid. Fortunately for her, in a world where paranormal beings are literally falling at her feet, she has a unique arsenal of skills. Her talents are quite valuable, especially for someone who isn’t squeamish about putting those abilities to use, or particular about whom she uses them for. Things are going quite well and she’s on her way to accumulating another sizable sum of cash when she comes to the attention of the one organization that can totally derail her plans, end her life, and quite possibly the world in the process. They have need of a talent Perish has just discovered she has, and given that they’re not the kind of people you can just say no to, she has to figure out a way to say yes and live to tell about it. She’s pretty sure she can, even with the unwanted help of a werewolf with the disposition of an Old World gentleman, a housemate who can only be described as eccentric and a couple of relatives who have been dead for centuries.

But I think my baby really showed out on this cover. I mean, seriously folks. Isn’t it gorgeous? This is a re-release of a book Lisa and I just got the rights back to. I don’t think the links are up yet, but I had to show y’all this cover.

Hey y’all do me a solid and pop over to Cocoafly’s blog for an interview I did on sexual empowerment.

No Particular Reason

This post serves no particular purpose except to point out that this dude right here is hot to death.

Remember I told y’all about the movie “The Coalition” my friend Monica Mingo made with Terrell Suggs who plays for the Baltimore Ravens and was the NFL Defensive Player of the year last year? (Okay, so I’m a football fan, sue me.) Well, it premiered at the ABFF (American Black Film Festival) last week! 

The movie is the ultimate scorned woman tale. The male lead, Prime, is a pro athlete with all that entails: wine, women and song. Autumn, the woman scorned has mad skills at building a coalition to take her revenge against Prime and all his boys. 

This is the kind of quality movie we’ve all been dying for and I can’t wait until you guys get to see it. Monica wrote and directed it, and Terrell, who plays for the Baltimore Ravens and was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year last year (Yeah, I said it again!) produced it. 

 

Amazon.com: WAR (9780446556248): Sebastian Junger: Books.

As y’all know Sebastian Junger is the absolute love of my life. Someday I’m going to write an absolutely nauseatingly Mary Sue book starring the two of us, until then I’m usually salivating to get my hands on anything he’s written. I’ve been waiting for his latest, War, to come out in paperback. Well, guess what Santa left in my stocking? Yep. It’s so good I read it in two days flat. This man is so unbelievably talented he seriously makes me want to step away from the keyboard.

Reading his account of life in the Korengal valley in Afghanistan has inspired me to do a serious rewrite on my book, Buttercream. The lead character in that book is a helicopter pilot, and I’ve got all types of insights into what that life is like, that I never had before. I think it will result in a better, more well-rounded book.
