John Small may be a successful Wall Street banker, but at heart he's a country boy from the sleepy town of Nedine, South Carolina. John wants to open Nedine's first black-owned bank. But big dreams can bring big problems and John's snooty New York City girlfriend, Madeline, is just the beginning. John is about to learn some hard truths about money, power, love, and loyalty. And when his future, and his family's legacy, is in danger, help will come from where he least expects it... Alexandria Thornton is a hard-working corporate attorney by day, but she's passionately pursuing her dream as a spoken word artist by night. Frustrated with her career and her lackluster love life, Alexandria's ready to throw in the towel on both that is, until a man from her past reenters her life and changes everything. But her newfound happiness is short-lived when old lovers, lingering secrets, and hidden desires threaten to end it all... — with Trice Hickman.

Black Pearls Blog Tours: Intimate Conversation with Debra Owsley: Intimate Conversation with Debra Owsley In 2005, Debra Owsley turned her love for reading and her hobby to support h...
Thursday, September 19, 2013
Author of The Barrenness, Sonja Lewis has appeared on CNN and The Tom Joyner Morning Show. She has also been featured in Black Enterprise, and in the media in Canada and the United Kingdom. A former reporter for The Albany Herald (Georgia), Sonja has also written for British newspaper The Guardian. Currently, she writes a blog for the Huffington Post, UK. A member of the Society of Authors, Sonja lives in London with her husband, Paul.
BPM: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
Yes, when I was a girl I loved nothing more than to make up stories for my youngest sister, though I didn’t write them down. I named the characters, described them and acted them out. When I think back, I absolutely loved the free thinking, no rules just creativity. My first real writing assignment came with a state-wide contest when I was a tween. What a tree means to me? I won and have been hooked since.
BPM: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of your family.
My church, the Spring Creek Missionary Baptist Church, a small church in Leary, GA. There I gained confidence by writing the church history, speeches, the weekly announcements and very theatrically delivering these pieces. And wonderfully, the people embraced me, encouraged me, said I had something special even when I read in Sunday School.
BPM: What does growth mean to you?
I feel I’ve grown when I learn from a mistake or a challenge and move on, when I am able to take from the past, let it go; and abide in the present and imagine the future positively. That to me is exponential growth.
BPM: Introduce us to your book, The Blindsided Prophet, and the main characters. What makes each one special? Do you have any favorites?
The Blindsided Prophet is the story of a modern day prophet who is caught unawares by a tragic event when he is a teenager. This alters his life forever. Fifteen years later, at God’s bidding Isaiah Brown returns to Coffee, GA, to unravel the tragedy, make reparation and prevent an even worse tragedy.
The main character, Isaiah Brown, is probably my favorite because he is original. I don’t know anyone like him. Naturally, he had to come from somewhere so I must have drawn on characteristics of some of the world’s great people, some perhaps renown. In any case, he is unique. He is a modern-day prophet.
Also, I favor Mae Cook as she is so very much like many people I know—well meaning, good to the core, but gets it wrong a lot of times. At middle age, she learns valuable life lessons. Through Mae, we see that it is never too late to grow-up.
BPM: What drew you to tackle the questions or topics in The Blindsided Prophet?
My faith, I suppose is the short answer. I remember being called arrogant once by a young preacher when I talked of my own personal relationship with God. I wanted to show that faith is not just about religion, it is about dwelling/residing within yourself if you will. Deep within you meet God as and when you please. You just have to focus. There, you find the answers.
BPM: Does your faith or education inspire your writing?
Yes, my faith does. I think Christianity is misunderstood often but not just in non-Christian countries but right here at home. People are turned off by these people who profess to know this Christ but He doesn’t always show up in our attitudes, in the way we live etc…
With my first book a Christian radio announcer cancelled the interview at the last minute because she found profanity in the book. Sorry but there is profanity in life and I try to create a real picture, if you will. I totally respect that it was not the book for her and her audience, but I didn’t have a lot of time for her assumption that she had inside information with God that I didn’t have, and that she was living more purely than I, if you will. I somehow doubt it. But if she is, good for her but don’t judge.
BPM: Ultimately, what do you want readers to gain from your book?
A spell bounding read that stays with them for a very long time.
BPM: How do you feel about e-books vs print books?
I prefer print books to touch them, to smell them, to read them and I always will but e-book readers, particularly the Kindle, have a place in our world. I love being able to access endless books and take countless reads on holiday, the train, etc… But if I had to choose, I’d choose print books every time. Now my business sense says that might be the wrong choice, but it is what I think.
BPM: Do you think book sales are the only indicator of your success as a writer?
No, I don’t. I do think sales are a huge indicator, but for example, with my first novel, The Barrenness, I had a campaign that took the lid off a very important social issue—a woman being fulfilled without becoming a mother. One of my goals was to start a worldwide conversation about the topic. I’d like to think that I played a role in all the attention that subsequently came to the subject.
BPM: My writing offers the following legacy to future readers....
The legacy of taking responsibility for one’s own thoughts and learning how to find peace within through changes one’s thinking.

Flawfully Wedded Wives Virtual Book Tour
Friday, August 9, 2013
You’ve Got It Bad By Marissa Monteilh Dr. Makkai “Feelgood” Worthy is back in the highly requested sequel to Dr.FeelGood originally released in 2007. Makkai Worthy is a gifted heart surgeon and even more gifted in bed, which is where the name Dr.Feelgood, is given to him by his many lovers. Makkai somewhat settled down with the birth of his daughter, sister, nieYou’ve Got It Bad was a GREAT read and I give it 5 stars! Marissa Monteilh has a way of pulling you into the story like a fly on the wall From the author of MAKE ME HOT comes a steamy tale of a popular heart surgeon and his four women, told in their own voices. They call him Dr. Feelgood . . . One woman would never be enough to satisfy noted cardiologist Dr. Makkai Worthy, better known by his sex partners as Dr. Feelgood. Womanizer extraordinaire, he's a chip off the old block of his rolling-stone papa and commitment isn't an option. At 37 and single, he's happier than he's ever been, living the lifestyle of the rich and fine. A gifted surgeon, Dr. Feelgood knows how to operate in the O.R. by day. But by night, it's his smooth operations in the bedroom that are driving his four main squeezes crazy. First, there's demanding-diva Georgia. She's bound and determined to be the doctor's one and only until suspicions arise that she's keeping something on the down low. Mary Jane is a sweetheart of a nurse who works in Dr. Feelgood's cardiology unit. He tries to stay hands off, until a player friend starts to make a move and he's forced to stake his claim. Self-absorbed Monday is as fast as the day is long, and she boasts that she can bag any man without getting serious; but the sexually talented Dr. Feelgood flips the script and uncovers another side of Monday. Spicy Salina's white husband is not one to share, so when he's sent to jail for choking the good doctor, the drama really begins. Dr. Feelgood's escapades as a true player could force him to finally settle down, or they might just motivate him to begin another affair of the heart. Watch out, because the ladies are lining up, and the doctor is in . . . Marissa Monteilh is a former commercial actress and television news reporter. A single mother of three, she lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and is currently developing projects for television and film. Marissa again signed with HarperCollins for her third title, Hot Boyz, and the next year wrote two books for Kensington/Dafina. The first Dafina book, Make Me Hot (re-released as Morgan's Makeover in 2012), was a 2006 African-American Literary Award nominee. The second title, Dr. Feelgood, was released in 2007, and re-released in March 2011. Life Changing Books published Something He Can Feel in 2008. The self-published ebook version was pubbed on March 1, 2011. The long-awaited sequel in the Hot Boyz trilogy, called Hot Girlz, hit the shelves on October 29, 2011. Marissa's first ebook novella, The Six-Letter Word, was released in July of 2012, and an ebook novella regarding the ultimate best-friend betrayal, Turnabout is Fair Play, debuted on October 15, 2012. Both novellas were bought by Black Expressions and released as a one of a kind, 2-in-1 exclusive omnibus on May 11, 2013. And in July of 2013, the highly requested sequel to Dr. Feelgood, called You've Got It Bad, hit the shelves. The final title in the Hot Boyz trilogy, L.A. Husbands and Wives is set for 2015. Marissa is a regular contributor to the literary blog, Novel Spaces, and she mentors new authors, answering questions via a monthly conference call on a comp basis. Originally from Los Angeles, Marissa now resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her family.

The Perfect Marriage By Kimberla Lawson Roby
Denise and Derrick seem to have it all They were the perfect couple, they have a perfect life, they have the perfect marriage. Nothing is ever what it seems. I pill, a line, the death of a family member and keeping up appearances isn’t perfect, especially when the perfect couple is in denial. They didn’t have a problem, because they where perfect. They weren’t like the others, Derrick was being dramatic and he was blowing everything out of proportion. Denise had everything under control. And they suffered great consequences for their illusions.
This book was OUTSTANDING. So much was packed into this powerful and extremely emotional story. In reading this, I felt like a fly on the wall. This story was so well told, I felt like I was there first hand. And I cried for them.
This has got to be one of the best stories Kimberla Lawson Roby has ever penned.
Perfect 5 Stars
