The Author Formerly Known As…Phette Ogburn

Happy Sunday y’all.

I’m back again with a super short post & vid.

Some of you may have noticed that my website is http://www.phetteogburn.com and my Facebook is now Phette HOLLINS. Why is that?

My married name was OGBURN. When I got divorced almost 2 years ago, I went back to my maiden name. I am in the process of changing my website but am torn as to whether or not I should change my name as an author. My books are published under OGBURN, and I think it would cause more headache for me to start writing under my maiden name. I’m thinking about keeping OGBURN as it relates to my books and just use it as my pen name. What do y’all think? Does it even matter? Do y’all care one way or the other?

#Cheetah4UJai

To honor my cousin Jessica’s memory, her friends, my family & I rock cheetah print (and purple) because she loved it and wore it on a regular. Soooo…..

If you have pics of you rocking cheetah, send them to me at: hollinsphette@gmail.com OR follow me on Twitter and Facebook and make sure to add the hashtag #Cheetah4UJai, & I will shout you out on one or all of my social media channels.

Check out the vid for more details. And don’t forget to Like…share…subscribe…and comment. That’s not a whole lot to ask, is it?

This is a test. I’m trying to see how this works and if it’s useful or not.

Thanks for your support.

Tomorrow, excerpt EIGHT will be released and is going to be the FINAL freebie. That’s because INNOCENCE, GA drops NEXT WEEK!!!! {Insert horns & musical instruments of your choice}

Check out the vid to gain some insight and see why this story is so important to me.

**Innocence, GA: Book Release/Update** @phetteogburn

Happy New Year’s Eve!!! I don’t know about you, but I’m geeked up about 2014. There are so many great things on the horizon. I absolutely cannot wait to share those with y’all.

As you know, today was supposed to be a monumental day. Yup. You guessed it…the day INNOCENCE, GA was to be released. Check out the vid for updates. :)

YouTube Channel Video Launch Is HERE!!! @phetteogburn

It’s October 1st and guess what? My Vlog is in full effect. Are you as excited as I am? I hope so.

I created the video using the webcam on my laptop. A warning, the quality isn’t the best, but, I’m working with what I got, ya know? The take away message is still the same and that’s all that truly matters.

Check it out for yourself below and let me know what you think. If you haven’t done so, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel so that you don’t miss out whenever I post a new video.

Enjoy!!!

I’m BAACCCKKKK —with a Video Blog & other news @phetteogburn

Happy Monday,

Let me say that I am so super sorry for being away for so long. During my absence, I’ve gone through a divorce, began a new relationship and have been doing some intense soul searching — which I’m going to share in my new video blog launching October 1st — along with my author journey.

I’ve gotten lotsa questions about the steps I took to write my book, so I figured it’d be even greater to simply tell it all in Video/blog a.k.a. Vlog form.

I need you to do me a favor and subscribe to my YouTube Channel so that the second I launch on October 1st, you will get a message in your email box. If you ever wanted to know how to write that book, hear other authors’ stories, or to get motivated, click HERE to subscribe. There will be weekly writing exercises, giveaways and prizes. You don’t want to miss out on that stuff, do you?

The launch happens October 1st!!!! Subscribe by clicking HERE and, when you get to my YouTube Channel, tap the little red Subscribe button on the right hand side to be a part of the festivities.

See you soon…

P.S.
I also changed the way I write my name. I’ll tell you all about it in a Vlog post soon!

#Book #Review of: Strawberry Mansion by Julia Press Simmons @JPSimmons

Strawberry Mansion: A Philadelphia StoryStrawberry Mansion: A Philadelphia Story by Julia Press Simmons
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Tabitha, Lisa, and Shanice are best friends. They’re as thick as thieves. Shanice is my favorite. Her feisty attitude and no holds barred demeanor set her apart from the other two. Initially, it was difficult for me to relate to Tabitha and Lisa’s bond with Shanice (who is 14 years old while the other two are 19 & 17, respectively)because of the age gap, but I suppose it’s possible. The storyline dealt with some serious issues that plague a lot of families. The ending took a twist that I kinda saw coming so that was a bit of a bummer because I wanted more…like what happened to Eric’s sorry tail. Maybe he reappears in another book. I did enjoy the excerpt to Begonia Brown, which is next on my list. JPS does a fine job painting pictures and giving her characters a unique voice and their own set of problems to address.
