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!

If you haven't seen "American Violet" yet go see it. The movie is opening in more theaters across the country tomorrow, May 1. It will debut on Bay Area screens tomorrow also. I know people are hyped about "Wolverine" but make it a 2-movie weekend and support this film. Click here to find show times near you. If they're not near you, call your theaters.

I recently interviewed Regina Kelly, the woman whose struggle inspired the film. The photo above is of Kelly and her four daughters. This sista has a lot of courage and heart. And she's still fighting the fight. Read my interview with her at WireTapMag.com
