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! 

Jenee Darden of CocoaFly.com on Sex Talk Tuesday Chat


The fireworks will just be getting started after Independence Day. I will be part of the @SexTalkTuesday Twitter chat on July 5th at 12PM PST/3PM ET. We'll be discussing how erotic romance novels can inspire you in the bedroom...or beyond. Of course I'll be Tweeting about my Black erotica research. Follow me on Twitter @cocoafly or look for the the hashtag ‪#‎SexTalkTuesday‬.

I will say that you can get good ideas for love making and sex play from erotic literature. And it can be fun to read excerpts to a lover. We'll chat about that and more on Tuesday, July 5th. Don't forget!

Thanks to Bawdy Bookworms for letting me join in!
