Show me your desk - books by Stylo Fantome, May Sage, London Miller and Ivy Asher


Back again after a break. So on the lower left handside of my desk is the money pot and a pen. Moving up is the stack of books I bought from the RARE 19 events. I bought books from Stylo Fantome, May Sage, London Miller and Ivy Asher - all of them gracious, beautiful and glamorously turned out. 

Most of the  authors were all beautiful women - so RARE19 it could have easily been a social media meet and greet event of Youtube beauty influencers and creatives, only with authors and their books. It was a glamorous event with a good feel atmosphere so you can see why fans flock. It's a real day out!

These are all new authors to me as I attended the event out of curiosity. Last year, I happened to come across an indie author's page who had a blog post on it, so I found out more details and went. 

There was no real method to buying the books, I just happened to arrive, and there where so many people so it was tables that really caught my eyes. The first was beautiful and glamorous Stylo Fantome and equally beautiful and glamorous her assistant. I approached the table and got talking to a fan who recommended a book which I bought.

After milling around, I had a chat with London Miller and her assistant. She explained what the term SAFE meant on Amazon, apparently it means no cheating. She also suggested two of her books, standalone so I got them.  Then I went to May Sage who also is stunning. She was talking to a friend who suggested what books I too. I'm not a big paranormal vamp fan so they gave me other suggestions - so I got her King of Ruin with is her first fantasy novel, and another novella Shy Girls Write Better. We got talking about book covers and she is very meticulous about her book cover process and she gets exclusive rights etc. Below is a picture I took for my post yesterday. 


Her friend had just finished a reverse harem series, which I'd never read - I mean the genre so the friend recommended Ivy Asher who she called the Queen of Reverse Harems. So I found myself at her table and she recommended one of her books to try out, which was April's Fool, a collaboration with another author.  I guess that was my book haul, all signed by the authors. 

Back to my desk, next is my pre-loved desk arranger which I recused from the bin. It had pens, a ruler, and some glue. Yes, my pen holder is gone, but I think this is much better suited. Beyond that coming down to the right hand side is a bottle of medicated mouth wash, a pencil sharpener, some face cream and a packet of tissues. After that is a sample toothbrush I got from my dentist. I'll try it out soon. Finally is my purple book which I just scribble notes in.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
