Book Spotlight: What's after Consequences?

What's after Consequences?

After embracing Sade Peters, I know everyone is eagerly awaiting the novel Consequences. Does Andre get what's coming to him? What about Talia James, does she succumb to Sade's fate? Trust me, you're going to love this book and you can get it February 10, 2009! You can even pre-order a copy from Xpress Yourself Publishing.

Consequences is a tough act to follow but I trust that you all will love Cost of Our Affairs, my Summer 2009 release. In Cost of Our Affairs we journey with India Joiner through the ups and downs of her marriage to Antoine. He's a good man but she soon discovers that raising another woman's child is more than she anticipated and the child's mother uses the child to make it damn near impossible for India and Antoine to live happily ever after. The constant interference soon pushes India into the arms of another man; Mario Thomas. What India doesn't know about Mario can prove to be fatal for both she and Antoine when Mario convinces himself that India is his dead wife! Cost of Our Affairs is sure to entertain readers and hopefully WARN against extra-marital affairs.

It all begins with the look; that initial contact when the eyes speak loud and clear as to what the body craves. Deep, wet, passionate kisses leading to mind blowing orgasms that leaves the body trembling much like a leaf on a tree on the windiest of days. Sex. It's meant to be a beautiful bond, a physically satisfying act between two people, but when not engaged in responsibly, sex can turn ugly, deadly even.

Andre Peters, a man who has it all; the perfect wife and family, and the job of his dreams. From the outside looking in, one would have to ask, What more could he ask for? What he didn't ask for was his secret desires for the same sex; those desires that occasionally lead him astray from his marital vows. But Andre doesn't consider himself gay or bi. He still loves sex with his wife; it’s just every now and again that he craves something different, pleasure he can only find in the arms of another man.

His failure to be honest with his lovers of both genders; his failure to engage in safe sex; his denial of his sexual preference; and his desire to straddle the fence-sleeping with both women and men-leads to a domino effect, destroying lives one HIV infection after another.
In Consequences, readers are taken on a journey into the lives of a down-low husband, his wife, his lovers, and a cast of others who are affected, whether directly or indirectly, by the HIV virus. The story is fiction but the reality of HIV is fact, and the reality is that each year there are thousands of new cases diagnosed-most of those new cases being women of color and minority. It has to end; and it has to end where it begins-with each one of us.
