Women call themselves Queens , men call themselves Kings. Many women call their men their King and some men use the word Queen too often. Most historical Kings were wastrels and sycophants, queens had a better track record. My people were enslaved for many centuries . It is something many try to forget but I always considered that my ancestors suffered from the Spartacus syndrome , for even shackled they remembered , more so than my current brethren , that they were sturdy and strong . I had forgotten that I had this book called Soulcatcher. It is not a big one but it is good . It is a collection of short stories set in Ante Bellum USA. It makes me remember I am no king . Like some of my ancestors my trials have been many , I have been scorned by many , I have been bloodied . I am no Slave too. But I am a warrior , bloodied but steady . Read this book you might find it on Google books#soulcatcher#charlesjohnson#kingsandqueens#shortstories#blackauthors#americanauthors#slavery#warriors
I have a lot to say, I’m just not ready to say it all right now. But what I will say is thank you. Thank you for every text, phone call, screenshot of your order, every warm gesture and kind word. I’ve been able to say this for a little while, but today it’s real: I’m a published author. And that’s crazy to me. •
On this day three years ago, I came home from work and decided I would finally execute my suicide plan. Being that you’re reading this, clearly God had other plans. If you would have told me when I was standing on that window ledge that in 3 years’ time I’d be writing and publishing a book about self-love of all things? I would have looked at you like I look at people who don’t like Chick-fil-A waffle fries. Ahkay? 😂 Nah, but seriously...I wouldn’t have believed you. •
So here’s to another lifeaversary (thanks for all the shoutouts today). Here’s to “I Love She,” and me loving me. Here’s to my journey through authorship (Book #2 coming in 2019 😏). Here’s to my crazy amazing support system! Thank you @everybody_loves_drea for loving me! Period. You’re so special to me. Thank you @mymiscellany for legit being one of the best humans I’ve ever encountered. Thank you @jayreal_suave for being my confidant and accountability partner. I love you, forreal. My circle is small, but it’s tight. ✊🏽
If you still wanna get me a “birthday” gift and you don’t wanna cashapp me (joking 😭 but if you serious DM me) tag someone down below that you think needs to own a copy of “I Love She.” If you REALLY love me, the person you tag should be @traceeellisross because...y’all know how I feel about her. Thanks for reading. I love y’all. 🌻

The book is about a young woman that has become a lady of convience meaning always finding herself never having official relationship status with guys but still giving her all. The book tells the story of this character going through her personal life doubting her self and what she is worth and her figuring out if she is truly meant to find love. It is a fictional narrative that is relatable to a lot of young women that I know personally.

This is a more personal project for me, it is a book of poetry with my true feelings and emotions that I keep inside. This is a collection of poetry over the past 16 years, I only chose a few based off the topics/categories in this book.
At times I have felt like I was not worthy , doubting myself, body image issues, feeling in love or maybe in lust. I have went through things in silence and touched on them in my poems. I hope you enjoy this book of poetry set to be released 11.18.18
