My first thoughts on Children of Blood and Bone was "gadaaaaaaaamn it, I won't finish this until Christmas". 🤣🤣🤣 But on a more serious note, it's a fantasy novel that will take you away from reality , even if it's just for a few moments. In the first 50 pages I've already experienced heartbreak, resilience and love. I'm keen to see how the two different perspectives will merge. I'm in love with the fact it's set in Africa. So far so good. What did you think of this, if you've read it?

You see the carefree-ness in this photo? That embodies what success is to me (That's not me by the way). Whilst there are beautiful moments in life that put a smile on my face, I'd love for my smile to be a permanent fixture rather than appear in intervals. At the moment, the one thing that can achieve that is finishing and publishing my book, and knowing that my craft can inspire a generation of black women to also write and share their stories. Thank you #writetogether for asking! .

Lies by TM Logan is the latest book I've been dying to read. It's definitely on my fall reading list. Can't wait to get home and cozy up with my copy from @barnesandnoble

It’s Monday, and the last week of September and I haven’t posted a review in a while so here a quick review of The Sellout by Paul Beatty
______________________________
I fought to get through this book and if it weren’t for my friend Makeda ( @colourlit_uk )this book would have ended up in the trash. This book is an extremely bold and searing satire of American race issues. I thought the writing was both lyrical, poetic in some ways, but also thick and hard to read at times. I did question why this book was so highly praised and what readers thought was so funny about racism. You honestly need to take your time with this book. I don’t know.....this book bothered me in so many ways. .

OCTOBER’S BOOK CLUB BOOK OF THE MONTH: The Mothers by @britrbennett .
.
Description: It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, seventeen-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. Luke Sheppard is twenty-one, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner. They are young; it's not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance—and the subsequent cover-up—will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth. As Nadia hides her secret from everyone, including Aubrey, her God-fearing best friend, the years move quickly. Soon, Nadia, Luke, and Aubrey are full-fledged adults and still living in debt to the choices they made that one seaside summer, caught in a love triangle they must carefully maneuver, and dogged by the constant, nagging question: What if they had chosen differently? The possibilities of the road not taken are a relentless haunt.

I am so excited for my #fall #readingtime with a cup of #hotcocoa Reading under a warm blanket is one of the many reasons why this is my favorite season.

So how do I normally reward myself after a good writing day? Hmmmm....do i even know what reward is? I'm quite bad at that. When I've hit a target I normally just move onto the next task. But I often indulge in a few slices of Madeira cake (M&S or Aldi only!) with a cup of tea if I'm having a particularly long writing session. So I guess that's my reward! Thanks #writetogether for making me think a little harder about this . I think I need to treat myself better. #buildingwomenwithwords #writingrewards 📸 istock via Google. .

Hard to believe that this was taken just a week ago. Since then, rain filled clouds have moved in and the sun has taken a back seat . A stark reminder that we've transitioned to autumn. We'll soon see the pumpkins and scary masks in the shops, then the tinsel and Christmas trees then that's it. 2018 would have fizzled out! But please don't be alarmed. Instead be encouraged. There's still time to start that blog, to get into the recording studio, to enrol in that course, to visit that family member before the year ends. #encouragement #sister2sister #buildingwomenwithwords

Good morning! Last month I went to see BlackKklansman, based on the true story of a black man, who went undercover to topple the KKK. The film taught me many things, namely how insidious racism has been in the western world, in the last few decades. Many people, especially in my beloved UK will tell me "it's not that bad". But let me tell you, it's deadly! Want to know what else the film portrayed? Well click the link in the bio and head over to the blog. #newpostalert #filmreview #blackkklansman #racism #buildingwomenwithwords .

Yes, I have incomplete manuscripts I hope to get back to one day. But two in particular I have in mind: one in the same genre as Unblended Sisterhood and the other is waaaaay different. In fact I can't even disclose what it's about as the thought of it fills me with knots - Let's say murder mystery/ supernatural. THEN...I have some poetry I would love to share! What about you? Anything incomplete that you need to dust off, and bring to life?

Why did I choose bright pink for my brand's primary colour? Well it was totally by accident (long story) but it was the right accident. According to brand psychology pink represents femininity, positivity, excitement and comfort. Everything I hope to communicate to my readers and clients! How did you come about your brand colours?
