LOVE IT: Turn it Loose

I honestly don't remember how I met Britni Danielle via the internets. Seriously, no clue, but I love her!

On a recent trip down to Miami, I finally had some time to dive into her novella...TURN IT LOOSE and got sucked into her adventure quick. Plus, I have a thing for British boys too (have you met my future husband Idris?)

Note my cute nail color :-)

NOT TO MENTION the title of the book is from one of my FAV songs by En Vogue. LAWD I loved this group! I was their honorary fifth member.

I had the please to meet Britni on a recent trip to LA (minus a little traffic and holdups, it was an awesome happy hour). PLUS she has my awesome middle name.

Anxiously waiting part II to see #WhatWillJaylahDo?

Sooooooooo...About That Cover

My dope ass cover was designed by Mr. Santagati. It’s amazeballs. AND if you went to HU, he's running for Howard University Alumni Association VP of Membership

That is all.

Sooooooooooo...about my Thank You page

I love my ipod, but I kind of miss the days of tapes and CDs, merely for cover art. I use to love flipping through the little booklet, reading the lyrics, finding out the producers, band names, and writers. But I especially loved the thank you page. It’s like an artist's Oscar winning speech in print, an open letter to everyone they loved and appreciated. When I decided to become a writer, I spent hours in book stores (remember those? I showing my age now) flipping to the back of books and reading thank yous, mostly as research to find author's agents, mother’s name, and if they had children (I’m nosey like that).
So of course, I spent a lot of time on my Thank You page. Ok, that’s a lie. I wrote it on my iphone on the way to work one morning. Nevertheless, I couldn’t have done any of this without the support and love of my family. This book and my career, was not a solo feat. For that, I say thank you.
