Desiree Future, author of It’s A New Season
(Self Published)

It’s A New Season is the continuation of the beautiful love story The Pastor’s Heart, which is now a part of A Kingston & Sinclair Series.” It picks up where newly married main characters Pastor Kingston Carter and Sinclair Madison left off.

The unlikely couple continues to build their own professional businesses, as they had done before marrying. Hardworking Sinclair strives to make her agency, Aged Out Foster Care Inc., more reachable to former foster care kids now turned adults in need of assistance. Family man Kingston is constantly helping to grow his family-owned grocery store, Carter Market, as well as their church Christ the Lord Fellowship.

In the midst of the two sharing their heart and love for one another, something comes crashing into their blissful world. One of the two will have their padlocked closets forced opened. The contents that spill will wreak havoc into the lives of the pastor and his first lady.

With the battle of David and Goliath standing at their front door, it’s hard to see who will remain standing if and when that door finally closes.

Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write “It’s A New Season”?

Desiree Future: My audience gave me the inspiration to write It’s A New Season. I had only intended to write one book. However, my readers had another plan. Within a week of releasing The Pastor’s Heart, my audience immediately started requesting a sequel. Having receiving so many requests, I simply sat down and started writing It’s A New Season.

5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
Saleem Little, author of Black Girl, White World: Crossing the Line
(Mitanni Publishing)

Black Girl, White World is one woman’s quest for an identity in a world in which she feels like a stranger; a world in which, as Toni Morrison put it, “American meant white and everyone else had to hyphenate.”

Dahlia is exposed to injustices at a very young age; from the false imprisonment of her father, to the slap on the wrist received by a man convicted of molesting twelve boys and girls at the shelter she was forced to reside in after losing her mother and father.

By the time she reaches college, she fully understands racial discrimination and the effects of it and finds herself in the middle of a racial riot on her college campus. In the end, Dahlia’s tale is one of self-awakening as she struggles to turn her tumultuous black and white world into one of color, full of love and understanding.

Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write “Black Girl, White World: Crossing the Line”?

Saleem Little:  I was inspired to write Black Girl, White World from an internal disdain for the trivial things that men deem worthy of warring or fighting over. Also the realization that most prejudice, and most misunderstandings, stem from ignorance. More often than not people seem unable to escape the matrix that conditions their ideas and systematically helps to form their habits and coerces their decision-making. [click to continue…]
