New Book Alert!

I needed to try and get myself out of the funk I've been in over the past couple years that has stopped my creative flow. I have a growing pile of WIPs (Works In Progress) that is frustrating me. I start a project and then peter out somewhere...

But, recently, I changed tactics.

Instead of trying to release another book of prose (I currently have WIPs for MAKE IT RAINE 2 and 3, an action-adventure novel AND a short story collection...) I decided to return to my literary roots and release an anthology of poetry to join my first four books EROTIC, SEDUCTION, QUOTES OF PASSION and OFFERING.

I was initially going to write another book of erotic poetry. I was aiming to name it PLEASURE and style it as book 3 in the Lustful Trio (EROTIC and SEDUCTION being the predecessors), but a chance conversation changed the trajectory of the book.

Having a conversation with another Barbadian poet, La Shawna Griffith, who currently has three books of her own out, I spontaneously decided to expand the scope of the book and not just write erotica. Previously, in a bid to shake my funk, I pulled together all of the erotic and sexually themed poems I'd written in the last year and a half and titled the project PLEASURE, as I said. Talking to La Shawna about her latest book R.O.G.U.E and how vulnerable some of the pieces were inspired me. I decided to do something I'd never done before and show some of the personal poems I wrote - not for public consumption, but to get through some painful times in my own life: when I left the Christian tradition, my last divorce, dealing with body image, things like that.

So, the renamed project Passion: The Gemini Project was born!

I write not only when horny - but happy, angry, confused and lonely, too. And those poems are all in this book, along with a healthy dose of sexy, of course!

I am a Gemini (duh!) and thus boast the dual nature of being bubbly AND reserved. This book celebrates both sides of my nature.
