Unedited. Subject to change. If I choose an official date, I'll definitely share it! Enjoy :) “Why aren’t you answering your phone,” Natalie demanded, picking up after the second ring. I knew she’d had her phone in her hand, watching it light up with my name, “punishing” by making me wait an extra few seconds before she answered. “I was a little preoccupied.” I stared down at the scuffed toe of my designer boots, feeling none of the rage I would’ve two weeks ago over such a thing. One week ago. Maybe the liquor was already kicking in, or maybe the shit didn’t really...

Unedited. Subject to change. No release date yet. The usuals. Enjoy <3   He was in my workroom. Bafflingly, I wasn’t bothered by the sight of him a bundle of steel wool in his – glove less – hands, cleaning the rust and grime from another spoke of the bike I’d been working on when he first arrived. I didn’t really let people touch my stuff back here – not even Vaughn, or my mother when she was alive. Raf though… I didn’t mind. Maybe because he got it. Maybe because this was a passion I may not have even discovered if it weren’t for him....

Sample Sunday. Unedited. No date yet. Enjoy! The hometown hero. “When you gone get back on that bike man?” “How many more of those medals you going to bring back?” “You the pride of the city man. Mr. International.” It was all well-meaning, and of course I knew that but that didn't make it any less anxiety-inducing. Even worldwide, cycling was an overwhelmingly white sport, and as much I loved my people – Black people – we had a tendency to put the hopes and dreams of the whole race on just a few shoulders. For the Heights… it was just my shoulders. I couldn’t mess up,...

Available Now! Jaclyn Love is a magnet for trouble - it seems to follow her wherever she goes. Unfortunately for Kadan Davenport, she also seems to be a magnet for him - even after a disastrous first impression that leaves him - literally - black and blue. Jaclyn is busy trying to find some sort of balance, and Kadan is just trying not to get swept up in the chaos. In a small city like Blakewood, it's hard to avoid each other...

Unedited. Heavily Redacted. Subject to Change. Coming soonish. Enjoy the sample!   I, admittedly, had a little bit of a sweet tooth, so I was a little excited at the prospect of finding gourmet-quality ice cream I could enjoy without my stomach bouncing right to left to do the shoulder lean. It was a pretty ass day outside too – sun shining, birds chirping, all that. I’d gotten in some good cardio on the court, had made those dudes feel bad about themselves – it was a great day. And then I walked into Dreamery. There she was behind the counter, her locs tucked away underneath a vibrantly printed...

Unedited. Subject to change. Enjoy! But what about the cat, Jaclyn? … what about it? I was nobody’s animal person, and hadn’t told her ass to climb up to my window. Homegirl had to figure her own shit out. With that said… those sad ass meows seemed to grow louder, and louder, and louder, the same weird shit, over and over. “Girl will you shut up?!” I yelled at the window, then turned back to my phone, scrolling through my list of options. MysteryCat did not, in fact, shut up, which prompted me to let out yet another sigh. Fine. Maybe I could give her something to eat, at least. She...

A couple of notes first, in anticipation of questions! This project has been a long, long time coming - it'll probably be published before the month is out. Coveted will be a novella, just like Haunted was a novella - 30k words of the story I wanted to tell. The plan is a trilogy. I do not know when the third book will come out. If you're going back to reread Haunted, please note that the most updated version (2018) has some content changes - notably, the complete...

It all came down to me. The one who followed the rules, never went looking for trouble – I kept to myself. I just wanted to take care of my family. To not constantly look over my shoulder, worried about the things that went bump in the night. I just wanted to survive. But that wasn’t meant to be. As luck – or fate, or something – would have it, the trouble found me. I followed a rabbit through the wreckage of a half-ruined world to get back what was mine, and wound up at the end of it. In Wonderland. But there’s nothing magical about it. (While...
