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 had a great time at the recent Beautiful Textures event in San Franciso. And I hear natural divas across the pond also had a good time when the Beautiful Textures crew traveled to Paris and London.  For my Cocoa Fly readers in the U.S. you can try some of these products that I took home.

It's simple to win.  Look at my previous post about Beautiful Textures here.  Stylist Felicia Leatherwood delivered priceless hair tips. I've taken her advice and have noticed a difference in a matter of weeks! One style I love to sport are two-strand twists. She dropped a major tip about two-strand twists that I was clueless about. All of this time I was damaging my hair because I was doing something wrong with my twists.


What was the advice Felicia Leatherwood shared about two-strand twists? Find the answer in my previous post. The first two readers to email the CORRECT answer to me win!!! Just send your answers to cocoaflyblog@gmail.com.  Good luck!
