Now available on Amazon ✨  Montana Moon doesn’t play – especially when it comes to the women in his life. One minute, he can be brash, outspoken, and possessive and the next… a protector, calm, and diplomatic. For all of his life, Montana has sought to fill the voids in his heart because of the absence of his parents. He’d rather have a roster of women than rely on just one to give him the attention, affection, and validation he craves. And that has always been okay… until Anastasia challenges him.  Anastasia Patrick has always had a crush on her best friends’ brother, Montana. Over the years, that crush turned into infatuation, infatuation became admiration, admiration nurtured respect, and respect bloomed love. One night between the two teaches Anastasia a hard lesson – when a person shows you who they are, believe them – and after years of pining over Montana, she finally decides to let him go.  But… fate decides to play a cruel joke on them, binding them together in the most permanent way possible. Will Montana make Anastasia regret the love she’s wasted on him, or will she be the ultimate motivation for him to reach his full potential as she softens the hoodlum with her fingers on his soul?
If you know me... this picture is a big deal! 😊💜🐕🐩😳 In my children's book, 📖 I'm Soul Be-you-tiful from A-Z! Inspirational Affirmations For Young Leaders 📚  B = Brave. My definition: Sometimes I am afraid, and that is okay.  Being brave means that I face my fears and do what I need to do when what I am doing is the right thing to do.  Sometimes I have to be brave even when I am afraid. 📷 The photos are me practicing what I teach. Auntie Asha has been afraid of dogs since childhood. This year I've been intentional about releasing this fear. Yesterday my new friends Michael and Austin actively participated so nicely in my Affirmations For Children Author Talk that I wanted to take a picture with them.  They introduced me to their dog JettJett who patiently waited outside of the cafe during the event.  They were excited to hold their copies of my book... which left me holding the dog 😳. In that moment I had a choice... teach fear, or exemplify bravery and I chose the latter. Both pictures tell the story most accurately because I was terrified when he moved, but I told myself "I am brave, I am brave, I am brave" and now I'm proud of myself! 🤗 . . .

Good Morning Beautiful Brown Boy👋🏿 - Don’t forget.... - You’re Beautiful💛 - You’re Strong💪🏾 - You are LOVED❤️ - www.TheBeautifulBabyClub.com
Have you wrote your book yet ? Or are you finishing it up? Do you have questions about getting it together?  I have a mini course available titled ✨Book Dreams ✨...click the link ⛓⛓in the bio.
I have a biography writing job that is past due, 8 poems to edit and 2 magazine interview Q&A’s to write all due before the end of the day. Ask me how many of them will get done before I meditate. Look at my hand in the picture.  Morning Meditation is the most important part of my day. Without it, I feel like I’m trying make toast before plugging in the toaster. Who else MUST meditate in order to function?  If you feel like you can’t do it, start with just 5 minutes in the morning, then 5 minutes before you eat lunch and 5 minutes before bed. You’ll naturally get better at it.  Oh and for some added encouragement, it took me 9 YEARS of meditating on and off before it became a consistent part of my lifestyle. So don’t beat yourself up. You’ll get the hang of it.  Peace and Love ❤️
And so the homage begins Sula and Tar Baby for fall bookclub selections #tonimorrison #nobelprize

My goal is to help those people that walk down the same path as me. ⠀ ⠀ Becoming a widow and raising three children was very challenging and brought my life to a place of complete chaos. 😨⠀ ⠀ You may not have my story BUT you probably know how I feel. ⠀ ⠀ That’s why I’m creating some GREAT things for the person that’s hurting, the person that gave up on love, the man who can’t take anymore blows. ⠀ ⠀ I’m here for YOU! ⠀ ⠀ (Limitlessbounds.com)

Pre-Order Available. Link in bio!  Movies make it look easy.  Light-hearted rom coms where best friends fall into relationship bliss with very few complications along the way.  This is a lie.  It isn’t easy.  Not even a little.  Especially when you’ve watched that friend get their heart broken repeatedly.  When their walls are so high they block out the sun.  Certainly not when that friend is the most important person in the world to you.  When you’ve failed at love too many times to risk it.  When hearts are on the line that raises the stakes.  Feelings are hurt.  Mistakes are made.  And a perfectly constructed friendship may crumble under the pressure. . . . . #blackauthors #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsread #blackromance #indieauthor #blacklit #bookclub #bookstagram #womenauthors #bookgirlmagic #blackwomenread #urbanromance #urbanfictionreaders #africanamericanbooks #kindle #womenwriters #blackwriters #womenofcolor #blacklit #romancewriter #authorlife #blackreaders #blackgirlsread #blackbooks #newbooks #kindleunlimited
“The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.” ― Benjamin Disraeli
Be Succinct!  Using less words to make a point is powerful. There's no need to use additional words or phrases just to have a buffer. Less is more!
The look of a proud loved one! This amazing lady opened her heart and home to me without hesitation, limitations, or restrictions. When I started teaching in WCPS she became my North Carolina Mom, my MaJames. Even after I relocated to GA she didn’t allow distances to create a strain or estrangement. She calls me, FaceTimes me, text me, listens to my podcast, reads my blogs, brought my book, and continues to show and express her unhindered, unrestricted, & unconditional love and support. Thank you MaJames for the genuine, unconditional and consistent LOVE and support!  #publishedauthor #poetryoftgeday #poetrytrip #encourager #zulmie #zulmiedapoet #rottensoup #powerinpoetry #haitianpoet #haitianauthor #haitianamerican #haitianwomenartist #femaleempowerment #africanamericanpoet #womenentrepreneur #blackwomenentrepreneurs #blackauthors #blackcreative #indieauthoursofinstagram #womanunbreakable #womenofcolor #blkcreatives #bookstagram #womenwhohustle

Drop a ✍🏽 emoji if you’ve had an experience with a bad editor. I know I have!  _________ There is no barrier to entry to become an editor. All it takes is to throw up a website (maybe), grab a red pen, and say, “Hey! I’m an editor!” With no skills, experience, credentials, or training, a so-called editor can be a detriment to your book. So what do you do to avoid the imposters? You can’t sit around and wait for the bad editors to disappear and move on to something else they may actually be good at. No, it’s your job to do your homework and sniff out the good ones to protect your book’s integrity and your pockets! Editing often isn’t cheap, so you can’t afford to waste money on subpar skills. You must ask the right questions, know what to look for, and brush up on your own writing and editing skills (real recognizes real), so you can separate the good from the bad. If nothing else, ask for previously edited titles, referrals, and sample edits. Be a savvy self-publisher. Make an informed decision and choose wisely! _________ Click the link in my bio for a free sample edit for your fiction or non-fiction title. Financing is available for those who qualify. _____  #tuesdaytea #tuesdaytip #newauthor #blackwriter  #indieauthorsofinstagram #selfpublished #selfpublishing #indieauthors #authorslife #authorssupportingauthors  #blackauthors #blackwriters #publishing  #blackgirlswrite #selfpublishedauthor #blackbooksmatter  #bestsellingauthor  #urbanfictionauthor #futureauthor  #aspiringauthor #publishedauthor #authoress #blackbooks #authorsofinstagram #supportblackauthors #supportindieauthors  #blackgirlswhowrite #makeyourmarkps #theinstaauthor #authorcommunity
