ForbiddenPlayground_850FROM SMP: SOULMATE PUBLISHERS: Follow the adventures of our kinky-haired hero and heroine. They’re psychic vampires, dark-phase African albinos, childhood friends who are separated by their android guardian and must find their way back to one another. But does it have to be on the funky streets of New Freedom?

And will human Red Maclaurin, chaos personified, get to them before they reunite.

From the forbidden slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, from the city of Old Freedom, Urhuratown, to New Freedom, New Jersey with the chaotic vibes of humans, the aggressive tattoo-parlor Goo-goos, and Dacon vampires, Akeelah finds out who she really is, the powerful psychic she was before her memory was wiped.

When she meets up with her childhood friend, Saffron, can she convince him to think of anything but sex, when they needed to get serious about saving the world for themselves and humankind?

This weekend I’m visiting my childhood friend Linda Kurtz Kingsley. We’re going to the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators in Monterey, California (SCBWI).

Linda writes and illustrates children’s books. When I attended the prestigious Philadelphia High School for Girls and majored in science, she went to the Philadelphia  College of Art.

I love her artwork of children. Her children’s books tell stories of children who are challenged and how they overcame that challenge.

Someday, if it hasn’t happened already, her unique impressionistic illustrations will be sought after for shows. I hope to be invited to such openings.

Both of us are writing our first books for young adults.

Coming: Linda Kingley ArtistMore about our feedback from the conference.



Yay and HoorayMarie Andreas Book Cover out to Marie Andreas, my stablemate at RWASD (San Diego Chapter of Romance Writers of America) for winning the JABBIC CONTEST (Judge A Book By Its Cover in Romance) GRAND PRIZE for her book cover for VICTORIOUS DEAD (The Asarlaí Wars Book 2). https://www.amazon.com/Victorious-Dead-Asarla…/…/ref=sr_1_1…

I cannot tell a lie. When she told me her book cover was up for the JABBIC too, I voted for it!

Good luck in everything you do in your writing career, Marie.

I’m sorry I couldn’t easily find info on her artist. Marie has access to great artwork. Marie, please call out to us the name of your cover artist. Inquiring minds want to know. I know you will. Congratulations, girl.
