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 Couldn't Put It Down
'Girl In Translation' by Jean Kwok

I have two words to describe Jean Kwok's "Girl in Translation" -- Fly Read.  This is such a good book for not just adults but teens as well. If you like heartfelt, honest stories of survival and mother-daughter relationships, girl you need to pick this one up.  I know you're wondering what the story is about. Read my review for the BlogHer Book Club here to find out.
