Happy Sunday!!! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend.

This video is dedicated to those authors who’ve left an imprint/impact on me. I began my author journey in 2010 and published my first book in August 2011. These are some of the authors who have offered words of advice in regards to publishing, editing, writing, etc., or who have not only supported my works, but have treated me like the person I am and not as “competition.”

So here goes….

* My author mentors – Sylvia Hubbard, Kai Mann, TC Mattison, Rayven Skyy

* Author imprints: Phoenix Brown, Jade Jones, Julia Press Simmons, Fabiola Joseph, Monique Mensah, Jumata Emil Jones

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.
