The Book Of The Day: The Dark Side Of Money by D.E. Rogers





As the perfectly-manicured matriarch of an African American fashion empire, Gloria Dean is the kind of woman who wants it her way or no way. Maybe that's why someone attempted to suppress the self-made billionaire the hard way: through murder. Now, her children are in their own blood sport to gain control of her vast operation. Can her prodigal daughter restore order to her kingdom, or will she be another liability in a chilling game of death by fashion? Find out in The Dark Side of Money, the stylish, searing thriller by d. E. Rogers that reveals the underbelly of the New York fashion world beneath the glittering veneer of the bright lights, big city.

A gritty peak behind the glamour, The Dark Side of Money follows a family-owned fashion empire at its crossroads. Both held together and divided by a tormenting and intimidating mother, the Gloria Dean Company has become the emblem of high fashion and even higher profits. However, when a sudden murder attempt on Gloria's life lands her in a coma, the family business perilously hangs in the balance along with her life. With greed and power outweighing love, the family members wage an all-out war against one another to gain control of the company.

Enter the eldest sister Jasmine, the black sheep of the family who is unexpectedly placed in control in her mother's absence. It's not long before the family's polished claws are out to dethrone her-and fast. As the stakes grow ever higher and the lustrous sheen of wealth and style gives way to its ugly undercoat, Jasmine must summon up all her cunning and courage to save her mother's legacy from rampant familial greed and shark-infested waters of the company's top brass. Can she keep her wits and integrity strong amid brotherly in-fighting, corporate duplicity, and the season's must-have looks? Find out in The Dark Side of Money, a wild, stylish ride that will keep you teetering on the edge of your stiletto heels.

Featured Author: Janet Mock



JANET MOCK is a writer, advocate and New York Times bestselling author of Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More. In 2012, she launched #GirlsLikeUs, a movement that encourages trans women to live visibly. She was featured in the HBO documentary The Out List and has appeared on The Colbert Report, and Melissa Harris-Perry. Her commentary has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Salon, Slate, Feministing, NPR, The Atlantic and more. A native of Honolulu, Janet lives and writes in New York City.

What would you like readers to take away from your book?

Redefining Realness is about a trans girl's journey to live her truth -- no matter what. I aimed to tell a deeply personal story, in which I contextualized those personal experiences in a political framework with a commitment to accessibility so readers who may not know anything about gender, racial, LGBTQ or intersecting issues would leave with deeper insight about the quest we are all on to reveal our most authentic selves to the world.

What did you learn about yourself in terms of your strong points and weak points while writing this book?

I learned that I am unflinching when it comes to truthtelling. Maybe that level of searing transparency scares some -- but it only encouraged me as I wrote, enabling me to unpack and transform my most painful experiences and find the power in them, and hopefully resonance for other writers. My weak points? The editor in me. Having worked as an editor at People.com, it was difficult for me to achieve a flow in my writing because I was so trained to edit as I write. I combatted this by completing my first drafts in a notebook rather than a laptop.

What was your greatest roadblock, and how did you overcome it?

My greatest roadblock was shattering the silence that I believed would protect me and enable me to survive. Transforming that silence by writing stories to myself (initially through journaling) enabled me to free myself from silence and speak truth to power about my experiences. That has healed me more than anything as a writer and as a person.

Can you give us one do and one don’t for those aspiring to be a writer?

Do: Tell the truth and write often.

Don't: Do not lie on the page.

What one thing about writing do you wish other non-writers would understand?

That writing is a craft, and a writer must take the time and space to develop that craft, to sharpen their skills. And often, if something reads as effortless, it took that writer a lot of work to make it seamless.

What was the last book to keep you up at night reading it?

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

What do you do to make time for yourself?

I set up boundaries in all aspects of my life. I am exacting about my needs. I surround myself with loving, affirming people who are invested in my happiness and success.

How can readers get in contact with you?

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love, & So Much More

Genre of Book: memoir

Welcomed into the world as her parents’ firstborn son, Mock decided early on that she would be her own person—no matter what. She struggled as the smart, determined child in a deeply loving yet ill-equipped family that lacked the money, education, and resources necessary to help her thrive. Mock navigated her way through her teen years without parental guidance, but luckily, with the support of a few close friends and mentors, she emerged much stronger, ready to take on—and maybe even change—the world.

This powerful memoir follows Mock’s quest for identity, from an early, unwavering conviction about her gender to a turbulent adolescence in Honolulu that saw her transitioning during the tender years of high school, self-medicating with hormones at fifteen, and flying across the world alone for sex reassignment surgery at just eighteen. With unflinching honesty, Mock uses her own experience to impart vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of trans youth and brave girls like herself.

All too familiar with the emotional, psychological and physical challenges associated with developing a healthy lifestyle, Tamara seeks to motivate, educate, and inspire women to take the steps necessary to reclaim their health and their lives. Tamara is a Certified Group Exercise Instructor through the American College of Sports Medicine and has authored the book “265Point” to provide “on point” practical guidance to those that are ready to ditch dieting and get fit for good.

She’s also a huge fan of roller coasters, whitewater rafting and zip lining. A banking professional of 15 years, Tamara holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Virginia Tech and a Master’s Degree from the University of Florida.

Get to know Tammara:

‘265 Point’, interesting title, what does it mean?

265 represents my highest weight. I was slim growing up, but in my mid-twenties I was under a lot of emotional stress and turned to food for comfort. Before I knew it, I ballooned to 265 pounds. I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror but I didn’t know how to change it so I remained at that weight for over 6 years. The Point is a place, but not one you would find on a typical street map. It is a location on the continuum of change where you’ve moved past just thinking about change and wanting to change and are now ready to act.

What’s the guiding principle of ’265 Point’?

Success is an inside job. In order to achieve the look you desire on the outside, you have to address what is going on in the inside, specifically what’s going on in your head. Everything we do (or don’t do) originates with a thought. If you just start thinking the right things, you can change your body and ultimately your life.

What one or two secrets will people be most surprised to read in the book?

The book is chocked full of nuggets, so it’s tough to choose just two. But I think the “Formula for Success” section in chapter 8 will surprise many people. There are millions of people out there that are seriously trying to lose weight and get in shape but haven’t been successful because they have bad or insufficient information. That was one of my biggest problems. I was doing some of the right things but all of my hard work was being cancelled out by a few sabotaging behaviors. I also think that the concept “freedom meals” and an “80/20 rule” in chapter 15 will be a standout for most readers. People are often shocked to hear that I believe there is a place for ice cream, cookies, etc. in our diets, but I have found that demonizing foods always backfires on you.

What is the biggest misconception about losing weight?

There is a laundry list but I would say the biggest is what I call “magic pill syndrome”. It is the perception that the solution to all of your problems is external – a certain diet, supplement, cleanse, or exercise routine – and when you find it, magically all of your problems are solved. I talk to people all the time who are searching, as if they are a captain on a treasure hunt – if they can just find the golden treasure! They go from one thing to the next – from diet pills to fasts, from fasts to cleanses, from cleanses to Paleo, from Paleo to carb cutting – and the outcome is always the same. There are few things more demoralizing than losing weight, getting compliments from everyone you know on how great you look, and then slowly but surely seeing the weight return…and then some.

You’re very transparent in the book. Was that hard for you?

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it was! What many people don’t realize is that our present is a product of our past. The heartache and pain we experience often gets internalized and turns into emotional baggage that we carry with us everywhere we go. That baggage influences our mindset and results in poor decisions. It was extremely tough to go to cemetery section of my mind and dig up that coffin full of painful memories, but it was important to me to keep it real with this book. I wanted people to be able to see themselves in the pages and finally see what is holding them back. Once you really understand what’s stopping you, massive change is possible
.
There are tons of weight loss books out there, why should readers choose yours?

Well, first let me say ‘265 Point’ is not for everyone. If you’re looking for a roadmap to losing 30 pounds in 30 days, my book is not for you. But if you’re really and truly serious about losing the weight – this time for good – then ‘265 Point” is exactly what you’ve been looking for. I am a certified fitness professional but I’m not some out of touch trainer that just tells you to eat right and exercise. If it were that simple, we wouldn’t have a health crisis in this country! You should choose ‘265 Point’ because it’s written by a person who’s been where you are, understands your pain, and knows the way out. ‘265 Point’ is the blueprint that will get you from where you are to where you want to be – you just have to take the first step.

Now that you have penned your first book, what’s next for you? Do you plan to keep writing?

Absolutely! I have more books in me and I write almost daily. A lot of my writing ends up in my blog at www.265point.com or in my newsletters, motivational texts, and social media posts. I have found that constant reinforcement of the right thoughts is key to keeping my clients “on point”. I plan to write another book in the next year or two, but right now my focus is helping as many people as I can create their own success story using ‘265 Point’ and our Online Fitness Membership Programs. People are often surprised to learn that they can get amazing results just by connecting with me by phone or Skype on a weekly basis. It may seem far-fetched, but the testimonials on my website prove that it works! I also enjoy getting out there and spreading a message of hope at women’s group meetings and conferences. So many people have given up and just need a change in perspective. Once your perspective changes, what you believe is possible changes. And once what you believe is possible changes, you are positioned not just to survive, but to thrive. All of a sudden anything is possible. That is my mission – to convince anyone who will listen that no matter how many times you’ve failed, it IS possible to live your dreams and lead a happier, healthier life. You just have to believe.

BOOK OF THE DAY: Breaking All the Rules by Rhonda McKnight

FEATURED AUTHOR: Natalie Baszile



Natalie has a M.A. in Afro-American Studies from UCLA, and is a graduate of Warren Wilson College’s MFA Program for Writers where she was a Holden Minority Scholar. An early version of Queen Sugar won the Hurston Wright College Writer’s Award, was a co-runner up in the Faulkner Pirate’s Alley Novel-in-Progress competition, and excerpts were published in Cairn and ZYZZYVA. She has had residencies at the Ragdale Foundation where she was awarded the Sylvia Clare Brown fellowship, Virginia Center for the Arts, and Hedgebrook. Her non-fiction work has appeared in The Rumpus.net, Mission at Tenth, and in The Best Women’s Travel Writing Volume 9. She is a former fiction editor at The Cortland Review, and is a member of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. Natalie grew up in Southern California and lives in San Francisco with her family.


What would you like readers to take away from your book? 

I’d love for readers to feel that they’ve been transported. That’s what I like to feel when I read; that the rest of the world just falls away. I’d also like them to feel that they’ve learned something. And third, I really hope they love the story.  I hope that when they turn the last page, they’re really sorry to have reached the end, but that they feel satisfied.

Which character did you have the most fun writing about?

 I’d have to say I enjoyed writing all the characters.  Charley, Miss Honey, Hollywood, Denton and Alison -- they are all so different; each one brings a different element to the story.  But if I had to choose, I’d say I loved writing Aunt Violet. She has such a vibrant personality; and I love that she’s a straight shooter.  Her voice came easily and I just sort of knew her from the first time she entered a scene.

What was your greatest roadblock, and how did you overcome it?

I faced a number of challenges along the way, but it’s hard for me to think of them as roadblocks. When I encountered an obstacle, I just had to figure out another solution. Take the timing of this novel, for instance. Once I surrendered to the amount of time the book took to craft, the writing was pleasurable—even when it was difficult and the words weren’t flowing easily, I found the process to be (mostly) deeply satisfying.  I’m not saying every moment was blissful.  But to the best of my ability, I tried to focus on the writing and the story, and that always kept me afloat.

Can you give us one do and one don’t for those aspiring to be a writer?

Do:  Find the people who share your vision for you work. That’s hugely important.  You’ll get lots of advice from well-intentioned people, but if you follow all of it, your work will feel scattered.  Try to find a few trusted readers; people who will tell you honestly when you’re going astray.

Don’t: Focus on what anyone else is doing.  It’s easy to put pressure on yourself because you feel as though you should have written or published by a certain age. That’s why I hate those lists with titles like “30 under 30.” It suggests that if you haven’t done something by a certain time in your life, you’re finished. Just write your book. Make it the best book you can possibly make it before you send out. Take your time.

What one thing about writing do you wish other non-writers would understand? 

I guess I’d like non-writers to understand that writing takes time.  A long time.  Sometimes, when it looks like we’re just staring at the wall, we’re actually working.
 
What was the last book to keep you up at night reading it?   

Right now I’m reading Donna Tartt’s Goldfinch.  So far, it has my full attention.  I read it ever chance I get.

What do you do to make time for yourself? 

I try to read.  Lately, I haven’t had much time, so stealing time to read feels particularly indulgent. I also go to the gym. I’m not a gym rat by any means; one hour and I’m out of there, but exercise, not surprisingly, help me keep my mind clear. I’m more focused and relaxed when I get to my desk.

How can readers get in contact with you?

A mother-daughter story of reinvention—about an African American woman who unexpectedly inherits a sugarcane farm in Louisiana.

Why exactly her late father left her eight hundred acres of prime sugarcane land in Louisiana is as mysterious as it is generous. But for Charley Bordelon, it’s also an opportunity start over: to get away from the smog and sprawl of Los Angeles, and to grow a new life in the coffee-dark soil of the Gulf coast. Accompanied by her eleven-year-old daughter Micah, Charley arrives with high hopes and just in time for growing season.

Charley is as unfamiliar with Southern customs as she is with cane farming—which poses serious challenges both on and off the farm, especially when her farm manager leaves without warning. But, rolling up her sleeves and swallowing her pride, Charley finds the help of a colorful cast of characters—blood relatives and townspeople alike—who all become a family to her and Micah.

As the cane grows, Charley is tested by a brother who is quickly using up her patience, and it will take all of her heart to keep the sugar growing and her family intact. Queen Sugar is a story of Southern wisdom, unexpected love, and one family flourishing against all odds.

NEW RELEASE - She That Findeth by Kim Brooks




About the Book

Ten years of believing, yet still no husband in sight for Shenita Love. The Bible does say “Wait on the Lord,” which, for Shenita, means waiting for God to deliver her a soul mate. Then again, God helps those who help themselves.

On her thirty-fifth birthday, Shenita’s fear of never starting a family has reached a fever pitch. Her trusty “rule book”—filled with guidelines for dating—simply isn’t cutting it. Soon Shenita is signing up for online dating sites, hitting on men at sporting events, and putting herself out there in ways she never imagined.

When Shenita stops playing by the book and takes matters into her own hands, she finds anything can happen.

Meanwhile, her closest friends are struggling with their own issues of sexuality, acceptance, divorce, insecurity, and financial strain. Always the faithful shoulder to lean on, Shenita wants to be there for them, but her desire to find a man leads her to an unforeseeable circumstance. A place where she must examine her relationship with God and reconsider her priorities.

BLOG TOUR: Who I Be by Annie Brown

 


When most people look into a mirror, what they see is unsatisfactory-an image tainted by societies dictates of how we are supposed to look. We were made in the image of God, so why do we waste time and energy remaking ourselves to please others? Scripture has declared that we were wonderfully and fearfully made, but we would rather conform to society’s image rather than be transformed into the image that God wants us to be. In the process, many of us lose ourselves and become someone we do not recognize. The decision is yours-to lead a happy and productive life, or spend useless hours trying to be what you perceive will be popular with others. This thought-provoking book will have you asking yourself, Who I Be.

Excerpt:
 
Words can hurt. If I am physically hurt, a person may be able to see the visible scars, but emotional scars are invisible, showing up only in our behaviors and attitudes. We will never know all that another person has suffered. Some of the things that have caused emotional pain for us are so degrading in deeds and words that we do not want anyone else to know. Nevertheless, even though, we do not want others to know that we suffer inward pain, agony, mistrust, fear, intimidation,
guilt, and low self-esteem, we are unable to escape it. Many times it has been buried in our subconscious, but it comes to the forefront, and we try to mask the hurt. If only another person could pull back the mask on someone else, they probably would be horrified at what was beneath.
 
Sister_Brown3_bigger 
 
My name is Annie Clara Brown. I am from Alexander City, Alabama and currently reside in Sylacauga, Alabama. I am passionate about serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and my church (Joyful Noise AOH Church of God) in Sylacauga, Alabama) where I serve as a licensed minister and secretary . I am definitely family oriented and enjoy spending quality time with my children, grandchildren and great-grand child.
 
My professional skills and areas of expertise include providing emotional support and grief support to patients and their families. My professional title is Medical Social Worker at Lakeside Hospice, Inc. in Pell City Alabama, where one of my qualifications is individualized psycho-social care for each family. I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Alabama with a Concentration in children, adolescents, and families.  My interests include working with veterans who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) as well as being an avid reading. I recently joined the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) became certified to teach Family to Family.
 
Get to know Annie:
 
What was it that inspired me to write this book? 
 
The book was inspired from an innate desire to help others to accept themselves and not fall prey to trying to conform to society’s norms.
 
What is it that I would like for readers to get out of my book?
 
I want people of all ages to become comfortable with whom God created them to be. We were created in His (God) image and were wonderfully and fearfully made; however, so many people suffer from poor self-images because they cannot measure up to what society depicts as the norm.  Please do not spend your life existing because you believe that you do not measure up by society’s standards/norms. Learn to love yourself for who God created you to be and live before your time to die.
 
What has been my most rewarding experience since being published? 
 
I have had people to say that the book has really helped them to change the way they think about themselves.
 
What has been my most challenging experience since my book was published? 
 
 It has been very challenging to find the right niche to get people to purchase the book.
 
In hindsight, would I publish this book if I knew that it would take so much time to get it to the right audience?  Yes, I would definitely publish it again. The reason I wrote it in the first place was to help others and I still want to do that. I cannot make any one purchase the book but I am reassured that I tried to reach out to those who are hurting.
 
 How do I interact with my readers? 
 
I use social media to interact with my readers, mostly, but I attend events promoting authors regularly.
 
 What valuable lessons have I learned since writing my first book? 
 
 One important lesson that I have learned has been that it takes much patience to stay in the race because there are so many authors out there. Another lesson has been to keep my focus and strive to be the best author that is within my abilities and know that even with the best abilities every book written will not be a best seller.

In this page-turning new novel from Essence® bestselling author Tiffany L. Warren, Atlanta's most eligible widower isn't looking to remarry—but for one woman, that's a mere detail. . .

Five years after his beloved wife's death, wealthy Quentin Chambers still hasn't returned to the church or his music ministry. Even his home is now devoid of music, and without his attention, Quentin's five children are getting out of control—until his mother steps in and hires him a live-in nanny. Montana is pretty, compassionate, church-going, and even has a beautiful singing voice.
