Hey 

How are you doing? Myself, I have been busy working 3 jobs. I have been working my 2 business plus I took on a seasonal job as a essential worker getting supplies and orders to customers so that can stay home. I really wanted to help out so i go to work even though I am in the risk group with my asthma so that others can stay home.


If you know an essential worker then buy them a coffee or a beer lol.

If you are an essential worker then Thank you for your service! xoxo

But I need to take a moment to talk with you about something very close to my heart. And forgive me as I get a little long winded.

The events that have rocked country... the whole world with the tragic loss of yet another person of color hits close to home for me as an author of color.

The vital message of the Black Lives Matter movement needs to be heard so that we can make the statement "All Lives Matter" a reality. Because let's face it... until black lives matter then saying all lives matter is a lie.

I seriously don’t understand how anyone can think that by supporting the Black Lives Matter movement that we are somehow saying other lives don’t matter. It's in fact the opposite. Because we want all lives to matter is why its so important to get behind the black lives matter movement.

Unfortunately other races experience police brutality however our brothers and sisters of color experience at a disproportionately high rate. When most get stopped for a minor traffic violation their biggest concern is having the current registration on hand while people of color pray we aren't gun down when we reach for our license and registration.

I am blessed to not have been held at gunpoint myself but I have watched as I have been treated as a criminal and harassed while shopping to hurry of and buy and get while a group with lighter skin made a mess of the store. She couldn't see them because she was too busy stalking me convinced i was a thief and lowlife. And mentioned it gets me labeled as the angry black woman overreacting and the police need to be called on me when i don't like being racial discriminated against. Then having the cops say well it's a private business so you can't come back here anymore.

But this isn't about me or racism I experience this is about those of us losing our lives at the hands of people who are using their badge as a license to kill. I have nothing but the upon most respect for police and our military. I come from a family of service men from cops right up to all branches of the military. I have people who love that are cops so this is not about paint all cops as the bad guys. its just not that black and white. At least not for me.

In this country of the United States we are innocent until proven guilty and I just want everyone who is suspected of a crime or violation to receive a fair trial regardless of skin color. I have a problem with anyone playing judge jury and executioner out there on the street just because they have decided people of color lives don't since we have been prejudged as guilty or unworthy of a fair trial or simple human decency.

That is all I want. That is what we all want. So as woman of color and sister to all of mankind as a fellow human being I am standing with the black lives matter movement so that together we can make the statement all lives matter a reality. A reality for our children!

I am taking a stand by hosting my own peaceful protest while maintaining social distancing because I haven't forgotten the dangers of COVID-19. I am also asking you to stand with me is support of equality.

In this email I will be sharing with you ways you can join me in protesting peaceful while staying safe.

Urban Fantasy

Jessica Cage

Award winning and USA Today Bestselling author, Jessica Cage was born and raised in Chicago, IL. Writing has always been a passion for her. She dabbles in artistic creations of all sorts but at the end of the day, it's the pen that her hand itches to hold. Jessica had never considered following her dream to be a writer because she was told far too often "There is no money in writing." So she chose the path most often traveled. During pregnancy, she asked herself an important question. How would she be able to inspire her unborn son to follow his dreams and reach for the stars, if she never had the guts to do it herself? Jessica decided to take a risk and unleash the plethora of characters and their crazy adventurous worlds that had previously existed only in her mind, into the realm of readers. She did this with hopes to inspire not only her son but herself. Inviting the world to tag along on her journey to become the writer she has always wanted to be. She hopes to continue writing and bringing her signature Caged Fantasies to readers everywhere.

Urban Fantasy

Delizhia Jenkins

Delizhia Jenkins is an Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance author who currently resides in Inglewood, CA. The love for writing began in elementary school when the passion for storytelling developed into a journey of writing. Over the years, she honed her craft for storytelling and the written word by excelling in subjects such English and English Literature; and by indulging in her favorite past time which involved reading the works of Anne Rice, K'Wan, Christopher Pike, Carl Weber, Omar Tyree and finally the late L.A. Banks. J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood also claimed her heart and author Karen Marie Moning joined the ranks of Miss Jenkins' all time favorite authors.
Miss Jenkins began publishing in 2013 with her first African American romance novel, Love at Last. After that, it was realized that her true magic rested in her writing about the ancient, the esoteric, and the supernatural. Moreover, since 2014, after her release of Nubia Rising: The Awakening, Miss Jenkins remained true to herself and her calling. And of course, being a true romantic at heart, it was important for her to fuse romance with the paranormal with a dash of "color." Miss Jenkins prides herself on writing for "the woman without the fairytale" and of course bringing magic and melanin to each book she writes.

This science fiction/fantasy series is filled with everything one could possibly ask for: action, mystery, romance, werewolves, vampires, greek gods, and so much more. Despite such success, Wilson has not let it get to his head. Mikel Wilson was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Being the youngest of nine children--four boys and five girls--Mikel Wilson was never lonely. Growing up, religion had been a major influence, mainly because he was the son of a preacher. This influence is still with him today, as he is the minister of music at his church. Mikel Wilson is married to Danielle and they have four children together.

Teddy Mack

My name is Michael Anthony, but my pen name is Teddy Mack. The reason why I chose the pen name of Teddy Mack because it fits my personality and my writing style perfectly. Many people say I look like a cuddly teddy bear, so I guess you can say the teddy side of me is more of the gentle, romantic and loving side of me. But far as the Mack side of me is more of a edgier, rugged and Hood side of me. Plus my closest friends used to call me Mack, that I grew up with on the Detroit eastside street called Lappin (s/o to my Lappin fam 48205 7 mile). I put both of those nicknames together and came up with the pin name of Teddy Mack which best describes the type of stories that I write which are erotic, romantic, love and then at the same time Urban, real, ratchet and hood.
Im 33 years old.
Married with no children,
I take care of my younger brother Bam Bam.
Even in my younger years I've been writing school stage plays, comic strips and skits for local rappers.
My goal is to become one of the best authors and for many people Nationwide to read my books.

Paranormal Romance

Desy Smith

Desy Smith, MFA, is a paranormal romance author and English teacher who is on a mission to expand her readers' minds and create unique worlds that they can escape to through the power of storytelling. Her poignant writing style features sassy heroines, urban drama, angels, wolves, demons, witches, and sensual scenes.

Born, raised and based in Dallas, Desy spent most of her childhood picking apart movies and books. Her mother and her affinity for all things supernatural also really drove Desy to dabble in life's unknowns and use her imagination. Ultimately, this led her to writing stories of her own at just 10 years of age. After her release of "The Talented (The Messenger Series)" this February, she will be working on book number three, and plans on writing until her last breath.

Currently, Desy is the Founder of Floebe Publishing, where she publishes her own and other writers' short stories (of 20,000 words max) with the busy reader in mind. She also provides complimentary creative writing advice to her fellow word weavers.

When she doesn't have a pen or book in hand, Desy Smith is a movie buff and foodie with an unquenchable sweet tooth (having a gluten allergy makes things a bit tricky). She also isn't much of a whistler and has a round face (people like pinching her cheeks any chance they get). With her "carpe diem" mindset towards life, she looks forward to exposing her readers to realms unseen.

Let me tell you a bit about me.

I am an Imaginator! Yes, it is a made up word but this is what I am. I live my life for the next adventure, for the next story, for the next song that will touch my heart, anything to spark my imagination.

I love to read and to write, probably the reason I became an author. My love of books has gotten me through many tough places in my life and I just want to share this magic with others!

I have a wonderful husband who may not understand but accepts my crazy ways and a baby girl who is starting to realize her mom is not like most and she still loves me for it!
