Reality bites …after a great vacation


It’s back to reality and tomorrow, back to work. I returned from my cruise with romance author extraordinaire, Ms. Brenda Jackson. As always, it was a good time. Ms Jackson promises to keep the momentum going with all her sexy characters. If you’re not a fan, get busy. She has 66 books, so you have a lot of catching up to do!

The cruise to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick was relaxing. The picture above was taken from my cabin balcony. Nice, huh?

I caught up with old friends and met some cool new friends. I wanted to send a greeting to Ms. Marie Forbes, fellow Elizabethan. It was wonderful to meet you!

Shout outs to the Savvy Sistahs: Gigi Jones and Sharon Clarke for making the trip extra special, Ms Louise Brown, my critiquing partner who kept me editing even while on vacation, and Ms. Toni Bonita, Book Club
Moderator for author, Altonya Washington. It was wonderful to see you!

If you get the chance to go to Nova Scotia, please make a trip to the Black Cultural Centre. Huge shout outs to Mr. Wade Jackson, our tour guide and Dr. Henry V. Bishop, curator of the Centre. The history of how Africans made their way to Nova Scotia is extremely interesting. You owe it to yourself to take a visit.

A trip isn’t a trip unless you have a little sizzle and spice, you know? In the coming weeks I plan to update my Sumthin’ Sumthin’ page with homegrown yummy pops from New Jersey. Six wonderfully intelligent and sexy men joined us on the cruise for a little fun and activity. Before I post (with their pictures!), I’d like to get their permission. You can understand that, right?

But trust me. They’ll be worth the wait! 😀

I need to unpack, so this blog will be relatively brief. But, it will only be a half unpack, because RWA is right around the corner.

Last but not least, enormous shout outs to those who subscribe to my blog. Thank you! I appreciate your interest and comments.

See you in a bit.
