Quick note- I apologize I have not been up and about with blog hopping etc outside of twitter. That’s even been scattered the last two days. Fri through Tues has been one of the worst bouts of Insomnia I have ever faced. Usually once or twice a year I go through 3-4 day spout of not sleeping but 3 or 4 hours TOTAL. This has been worse than that outside of a few hours Tuesday night. Finally Thursday afternoon I crashed and slept almost 24 hours straight. It takes more than that to catch up and I hope that my body will rectify itself towards recovering the compounding effects of sleep deprivation. Usually it is 1-3 nights throughout the month that I don’t sleep or days here and there that I don’t sleep well. This is typical. What happened this past week? Is the worst of even the worst that I expect to happen once or twice a year. Thank you 🙂

If they find more fiction by African-American authors and/or non-fiction books to better understand the roots of what is happening in America, that is my only hope. If there is anything of offense or harm in this post, it is NEVER my intention and I hope you will let me know so that I may fix it, and better myself.
Circus Rose features Queer representation, poetry and prose formats in this sweet retelling that should be aimed at markets younger than young adults.
Not a complete list by far, this is a list of ten upcoming releases by Black authors that I am looking forward to that are within my genres and interests. There are tons more within the YA/Adult contemporary, romance etc.. that you should definitely look for and check-out! In the meantime, here is a list of ten to keep an eye out for, stick them on your Goodreads list or better yet, order them now! There is also lists of Black owned book stores for additional support of any bookish buys.
