I am back from Blogher 2009 (www.blogher.com). I had a grand time with the Blogher ladies and sponsors in Chicago. I also had so much fun using my Vado Creative Cam and filming webisodes of Ananda Leeke TV (www.youtube.com/anandaleeke). I was able to create a groovy series on Black women bloggers who… Continue
I so loved his voice, and this is a sad day in the literary world. I think his honest candor about the life of men who chose certain lifestyles was exceptional. I came upon his book quite by accident then proceeded to read all of them in short time. I will miss His words and talent.

It is my hope that this book circulates amongst many generations, educating adults and children alike. If our children are educated early about the proper use of credit and the importance of protecting their names, then we could see a greater outcome.

It has come to my attention that some of my readers are struggling under the weight of difficulties, our scripture text reminds us of Jesus’ invitation to come to Him regardless of our problems. Jesus recognized that there were going to be problems in our lives regardless of the cause; whether it sickness, financial difficulties or family struggles it remains a problem… Continue
I belong to too many communities. Sometimes it overwhelms me.
But I'm Black. I'm a writer. I write Young Adult fiction.
I connect myself to communities that feed each individual part of me. When I visit here, I can rejoice in celebrations of my peers or lament the industry issues that make writing while Black a challenge.
I wish I were coming to rejoice, today.

When the Garden of Eden didn't work out, God had a back up plan for both Himself and the world. His backup plan was Jesus. The darkness and destruction that was in store for man couldn't materialize because God had already planned out a just in case scenario. Imagine for a moment that God had no plan to address Adam and Eve's folly. Where would we as believers be? That is a very scary proposition.
So is the idea of not having a savings account. Most of us are so busy trying to stay… Continue

MediaBistro's Morning Media Menu had a conversation with author Jamie Brenner about advice for writers looking to explore this newly crowded genre. An excerpt from Brenner: My first erotic novel came out two years ago. The landscape feels completely different. There is not just the hope to reach a mainstream audience with erotic novel, but the expectation that success is reaching everyone, not just the genre readers. Fifty Shades of Grey really raised the bar for that. At the same time, working…See More
