Book Review: Secrets Untold by Latonya Smiley

Book Review Title: Secrets Untold: A Daughter’s Cry Author: Latonya Smiley Publisher: Unbroken Publishing Inc. Published: 2015   I knew when I opened the mail and stared at the title what this book had in store. However, these horrible tales always hold unique aspects. I’m thankful that Latonya Smiley found the courage to share her story and the strength to forgive her parents. Why are books like Secrets Untold valuable pieces? Multitudes of victims are not telling their stories, not healing, and not living freely.  Secrets Untold is Latonya’s story of abuse, pain,...

What I Hate Most About Cheating

What I Hate Most About Cheating

HOW DARE YOU The Betrayal. Let’s just get that out of the way. It’s what most of us hate. How could they? I loved them! I am such a great mate. So irreplaceable! Yeah, you should feel that way. Especially when you sacrifice and compromise, and do everything you can, plus more than you probably should to make them happy.  Betrayal slaughters trust; and we all know that once trust is gone, every other aspect of the relationship starts to feel strained.  You can’t say that water is wet without your partner second guessing you and checking to make sure for themselves. We...

Book Review of Hot Mess: Author Madeline A. Rosenberg

Book Review of Hot Mess: Author Madeline...

Book Review Title: Hot Mess Author: Madeline A. Rosenberg Publisher: CreateSpace Published: February 2016   The title of the book, Hot Mess, could not have been more spot on. I expected to read a book about a girl with tons of drama and whose life was all over the place. I got pretty much that, but also much more. The main character, Anna, never had a dull moment.  You get the feel that she is out of touch with real world issues and engrossed with her entitled, suburban lifestyle.  I was a bit nauseated with her mindless behavior and interactions.  Thankfully she is...

Book Review of The Beginning: Sheena and Monica-Author P.D. Monroe

Book Review of The Beginning: Sheena and...

  Book Review Title: The Beginning: Sheena and Monica Author: P.D. Monroe Publisher: Patrick D. Tunis Published: March 2016   The title of the book, The Beginning: Sheena and Monica, sets one’s mind on two courses. Either this book was going to be about a lesbian love affair or two girls who become very close and had to make it on their own.  My intuition with books is more times than not correct.   The beginning of the book is likely to grab the reader’s attention with its intense and relatable situations.  This short story introduces two young girls, Sheena...

Book Review of Hazard-Author Sade Rena

Book Review of Hazard-Author Sade Rena

Book Review Title: Hazard Author: Sade Rene Publisher: CreateSpace Published: May 2015   The title of the book, Hazard, sets the expectation that the book will have twists and turns, and that either a person or situation will be a potential tragic downfall for one or more of the main characters. Fairly standard and predictable, the thought of an urban novel brings to mind a story relating to drugs, the street-life, betrayal, and sex. Hazard did not disappoint.   The main characters, Freya and Dice, find themselves happily bonded and in love; however, challenges...

The Next Wife: A New Life

The Next Wife: A New Life

DAMN, DAMN, DAMN!!! Verlyn hit this topic with precision and passion! ‘She doesn’t want him but that doesn’t mean she wants you to have him.’ Ugh! How many of us have had to deal with ‘her’? Go sit down girl! Okay, okay. Let me get out of my feelings and jump into this book review.   Often, we meet a writer who is not well-known and we think to ourselves, ‘How good can this book be if it hasn’t been picked up by a major publisher or if I haven’t heard about it yet?’ The answer is, VERY! Verlyn’s desire...

What Love Will Really Cost You

What Love Will Really Cost You

I love the saying, ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’. That is ‘in the box’ thinking for sure.  Cost has become a term which people solely associate a nominal value to.  I’d rather spend all of my money and it be a wasted venture than to spend my time, which I could never recoup. That is what makes most people vengeful and homicidal. Don’t waste my time. So let’s discuss the cost of love-and let me assure you, love is very expensive. A girl like me is going to require maximum respect. Oh, baby. Disrespect me and you will be miserable until you get it all the way right, or I fire...

Want To Write A Book But Don’t Know How? Who You Gonna Call? A Ghostwriter!

Want To Write A Book But Don’t Kno...

You wouldn’t believe how many people tell me that they want their life story put into a book.  That they want someone-me-to write it for them and help them get published. ‘The story of my life would be a best-seller! Everyone needs to hear my story.’ People love the idea of someone helping them get their story out there until they realize that it comes with a cost. Unless you are a high profile celebrity, public figure, or current person of media interest, it will cost you to get in front of an audience.  The good thing, however, is that it does not have to cost you much....
