Hello, all! I've been swamped and haven't been posting much lately. But I have risen from the trenches! LOL! I wanted to let everyone know about an exciting anthology I've had the pleasure of editing entitled: Truth Be Told: Tales of Life, Love, and Drama. Here's a brief summary:
Truth Be Told is an anthology featuring some of today's hottest Black male authors. Despite the varying perspectives, these stories examine the intricacies of relationships from single to married life and everything in between, giving new meaning to the phrase, "keepin' it real." These stories not only keep it real, but they keep it sexy, exciting, fun, and scorching hot! Bestselling author Travis Hunter begins with a tell-it-like-it-is passage about the ups and downs of relationships. The adventure continues with Driving While Black, a story by award-winning journalist and writer Robert Fleming about a man forced to confront his doggish past. Michael T. Owens contributes Ties That Blind, a story that looks into the life of a man trapped in a love triangle with a marriage-happy girlfriend, horny ex-girl friend, and a possessive, alcoholic mother. In Dawn, Kenji Jasper spins a tale of how decisions of a young couple affect their relationship ten years later as husband and wife. A struggling artist entertains thoughts of mixing business with pleasure in The Harrisburg Tease by Robert L. Anderson. In Sinfidelity, James W. Lewis takes readers to Las Vegas where a married man wrestles with the choices of fidelity and infidelity. V. Anthony Rivers' Last Remnants of a Good Situation shows the consequences of a sweet love turning sour. Nane Quartay's The Beautiful Ones is a day in the life of a self-proclaimed porno star caught in an underground world of sex and drugs. In For That Quiet Time of the Day, Eric James Fullilove tells a tale of an Account Executive's humorous exploits at a high profile advertising agency. Told from a woman's point of view, Edwardo Jackson's Postcards From Hell shows the deterioration of a woman's emotional state during the sudden absence of her boyfriend. Jonathan Luckett pens The Object of His Obsession, a haunting psychological tale of a married man's obsession with his best friend's wife.
From sensual and steamy, to humorous and thought-provoking, this collection has something for everyone. Consider this a front row seat on a thrill ride you won't forget!
