My First Book 'When A Purple Rose Blooms' is Available NOW

I am beyond excited to announce that my FIRST book When a Purple Rose Blooms is available!! You can order copies directly from my publisher Nomadic Press. Order here
The book is a collection of essays and poetry about my experiences with black womanhood. There's lots of humor, pain, and love on every page. This book wrote itself. I had no intention of releasing a book of poetry and essays, but when I saw how much I've written over the last 20 years I thought, "why not?" and went for it. 
The book launch is tonight, 7pm at the Oakland Peace Center. I will be launching my book along with 6 other new writers to Nomadic Press. I'm in great, literary company. 
Thank you to every person who has read this blog over the years, attended my readings, listened to my radio stories or read my articles. Thank you for your support. I hope you enjoy the book! 

Why So Serious Christian Bale?

I hate when cute actors ruin the fantasy and show their "other side." I just went on TMZ's website and listened to "Batman" star Christian Bale curse out a photography director. Scratch that, he CUSSED OUT the photography director. The guy walked onto a set while Bale was filming a scene for a new "Terminator" film. I can understand Bale being P'd off because having to re-shoot a scene wastes time and money. And I don't know if anything happened prior to the incident to cause Bale's reaction. But did he really have to rip into the man like that? I'm one of 11 million+ jobless Americans. Yet Bale who makes millions per film is trippin' off of a careless photography director? Must be nice.

Now the question becomes who is more wrong in this situation: Bale or the person who released the audio?

Tell me what you think.

  1. LOL. He sounds like an ass, but some people have to get cursed at to learn. I bet he'll never do that again on any set. If anything, Christian was trying to help him stay employed on future films.

  2. LOL! That's another way to look at it. Cussin' me out is actually helping me out. Well somebody was mad at Christian b/c they leaked the recording of the rant.
