Book Blitz: The Story of Us

Image
The Story of Us by author D. Nichole King




Publication date: February 9th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Moments.
Every life is made of thousands of them, each one strung together with the next. Some are yellow and happy, some are blue and sad, and some…
Some wipe out color altogether.
“I love you,” is what I should have told Maverick.
“I’m sorry.”
“I’m still fighting.”
Instead I just watched him leave.
Now my husband, my everything is battling for each breath, and all I can do is stare at the machines as the clock ticks off precious minutes.
The doctors said the first twenty-four hours are critical—but every moment is critical.
You never know which will be your last.
This is our story, and I’m not ready for it to end.

EXCERPT: I’m in the front seat of the police car. My purse is on my lap. I didn’t bring anything else. I didn’t even change my clothes. We’ve been driving for ten minutes, I think. I’m not sure. I’ve asked the officer questions, and he answe…

Coming March 20th





Vaughn Johansson is the Nashville Assassins' star player. He's brash, cocky, and talented. And he isn't afraid to let anyone know it. He lives his life on his own terms, never forming romantic attachments, and only allowing his very closest to see his true, caring self.

Brie Soledad has the weight of the world on her shoulders. As the staff reporter for the Assassins, she balances a high-profile job and its heavy travel schedule with being the sole provider for her adult brother with Down syndrome. Sure, she'd like to find love. But who has time for that when there are bills to pay?

Brie has been the match to Vaughn's gasoline since the day she first held out her microphone to him. They strike sparks off each other, keeping their friends, the team, and the Assassins fans in stitches. Brie’s refusal to fawn over Vaughn sets his teeth on edge and his blood boiling. Especially in that body part...

Brie's been let down by love before, but she knows s…

Having a baby is never easy…

Asher Salling is a handsome business tycoon and the very definition of a commitment-phobe. In his younger years, Asher made a mistake unlike any other: He let an amazing woman slip from his grasp over a simple misunderstanding.


Now an adult, Asher finds himself in a dead end relationship with a woman he's not sure he even truly likes – let alone loves. Little does he know, he’s about to get reacquainted with the same woman he let go so long ago: The one and only Bianca Martin.


Bianca is a successful real estate broker who moved back home after college for a fresh start. She’s smart, independent, and she’s always taken great pride in the fact that she doesn’t need a man to get things done. Of course, that’s not to say she doesn’t have her yearnings…


Asher and Bianca reconnect without even trying, but things reach an impasse when Bianca falls pregnant with Asher’s ch…

Don’t all women wish men came with a warning label or a caution sign? That would be ideal and save a lot of heartache and pain.
Meet Anika, Mia and Legacy. Three friends going through the trials and tribulations of love and heartache. Young and deep in love, they can’t seem to let go of the men they’ve fallen madly in love with.
When Anika is forced to face the truth she was so determined to find, her world comes crumbling down, and she has to decide whether to love herself first or stay in a relationship that could destroy her.
Mia is given a reality check and quickly learns that looks don’t always keep a man, and that sometimes men make promises they can’t keep to get what they want.
Legacy is tired of being put on the back-burner and finally realizes she deserves better. Unfortunately, her other half plays on her low self-esteem and uses it to his advantage, but Legacy has had enough.…

Loving Black Men: An Anthology
Be a part of the movement
Violence against black men in America is increasing, in their own neighborhoods and at the hands of law enforcement. The injuries and fatalities have become so common that many are becoming desensitized to the continuous news and images of brutality. The proof is in the commentary on news outlets and social media. Many expect nothing to be done, because so often nothing is done. Thus, the Loving Black Men project.

The authors who contributed to this project wanted to do more than share their opinions on social media. They have come together to illustrate with words the value of human life, especially that of males of color.

With their narratives these authors have declared war against ignorance that breeds intolerance, and fear, and racism. This is their weapon to counteract the hate speech mongers, the politicians and the commentators posing as news broadcasters.

Through their stories and poetry they fight wielding swords of en…

Cry Wolf by author Nikki Winter

"I need to be away from you. You need to be away from me. You'll thank me for this someday; I promise you that." For fourteen years Iman Gautier had recited his parting words to Neema White like a lullaby parents sung to their children. Never releasing the hope that they weren't the sole thing she remembered of him. Of them. Yet, when you were literally created for a purpose shaped by the beguiling hands of Lucifer himself, hope was fickle. Cursed with a congenial link to rougarou--a stronger form of lyncanthrope that once served at the devil's feet--Iman was forced to accept that his beast carried the weight of urges that couldn't be contained with the simplistic things that pleased his evolved pack. A contract with one of hell's many hands saw to the removal of his bond with the underworld, leaving him unrestrained to return to all that he'd left behind in his search for freedom from his literal and prover…

Time to Celebrate Authors of Color

Image
It is my distinct honor and pleasure to find new and exciting black authors. There are many who write in the urban genre but it is exceptional to find those who have taken up the mantle in other genres such as science fiction, fantasy, supernatural and paranormal. I hope in this brief celebratory period of authors and the books they write that you will fall in love with them and their books as well. Breaking down barriers and stereotypes, these pioneers should be celebrated. No longer is it true that Blacks don't read. We not only read but write in spectacular fashion. Enjoy and spread the word

Rules were made to be broken. Until I broke the wrong ones…
***
Jackson Reed knew the only thing harder than his head was the insatiable one between his legs.
Sandwiched somewhere between following the law and his own instincts, he made up his own rules in the game of “private investigations”: his sacred version of the Holy Trinity.
Sex.

Career.

And more sex.
He towed the delicate line between the “three” until Penelope Castalano—a former flame he equated to the plague—re-enters his life…and obliterates it.
Fresh from Paris, his best friend’s attorney breaks the only deal they’ve ever made, sauntering back onto the Manhattan scene at a costume party with more to hide than just her face.
And now one fugitive best friend and two broken promises will ignite a new Holy Trinity in Jackson’s hazardous life.
Caught in the midst of a government coverup that compromise…
