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! 

Listen to Me TODAY on
The Brian Copeland Show

Tune into The Brian Copeland Show today on KGO Newstalk 810 at 1pm PST. I will be on at the top of the show discussing being an Oakland teen and daughter of Chris Darden during the O.J. Simpson trial.

I interviewed Brian Copeland in 2011 about his one-man play on depression called The Waiting Period. Now I'm on the other side of the mic. We're both passionate about mental health. Hopefully we can work that into discussion as well as my African-American erotica research.

 Tune in!
