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! 

Girl Get Your Swirl On:
'Swirling' Co-Author Christelyn Karazin Guides Readers to and Through Interracial Love


When I first read heard BeyondBlackWhite.com blogger Christelyn Karazin was co-writing a book about interracial dating, I thought, "What more needs to be said?" Between the media's odd fascination with black women's dating lives, to black women empowerment bloggers encouraging sistas to expand their dating pool, I didn't think there was more to add to the convo. Either you swirl (which means date interracially) or you don’t. But Christelyn  and her "Swirling" co-author Janice Littlejohn aren't trying to sway readers to try "something new". This book is a guide for those black women who are ready to jump into the interracial dating pool or have already found their Marco Polo-Chung-Pakowski. 

 Listen here or below to my interview/girly-girl chat with Christelyn about her book, how she met her husband (who is white) and dating. I really hope you listen since I sacrificed watching one of my favorite TV shows to do this interview.
