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!

I've always wanted to be a cover girl. One of my posts on black erotic literature was featured on the front page of BlogHer. Click here to read about my love and appreciation for black erotic literature. Okay, making the front page of a website is not quite the same as being a cover girl but that just means I'm one step closer. Thanks to BlogHer for running my post and thanks to my Cocoa Fly readers for your support. This blog is steadily growing. I'm excited about the new ideas I have for this website.
