Two sisters, Cookie and Chelsea, are recovering from the aftermath of the revealing of a dark secret (previously detailed in the novel, Fortune Cookie) that almost ended their lives. Now, they are ready to live the good life.

Chelsea has a secret of her own though that makes Cookie afraid to trust her and fearful for her own life. Plus, she develops doubts about her husband’s faithfulness. She tries to keep her sanity as she learns she can’t trust anyone close to her.

Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write No Cream In The Middle?

Carlos Harleaux: No Cream In The Middle was easier to write than Fortune Cookie, since the former was a continuation of the latter. The inspiration for the characters comes from real life experiences, mixed in with the personalities of some of my friends and family. I used certain experiences and developed how the characters would react to those situations based on the personas I created.

Drell Lee, author of Secrets Of Sad Men

Secrets Of Sad Men is about the things we don’t say in our relationships and how those things inevitably manifest themselves in various situations.

Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Secrets Of Sad Men?

Drell Lee: Real life. I had gone through so many things in the relationships I had been in, whether it be family, friends, marriage or work. I just wrote and hoped that it would help, inform or, at least, give someone a different perspective on their situations.

(ME BOOKS)

Pussywhipped: The Emasculation of Humanity is a stinging in-depth look at the abuse of aggressive anger and its malignant effects on society. This highly controversial, politically incorrect work defends good men and their rights as fathers… infuriates unenlightened women, especially male-bashers… and champions the rights and needs of our children.

As author Maya Emmett reflects on major life-changing events in her personal life with extensive updates, she passionately explores the role of religion, the victims of victims, the true nature of Woman and so much more. Experience varying degrees of emotional highs and lows as she fearlessly delves into the truth of our struggles to peacefully coexist, culminating with a thought-provoking love poem, which speaks to the soul of every man from the untainted spirit of every woman. New for 2017, from an enlightened man, is a beautiful complementary poem to the “hopeful” romantic in every woman.

Of note, this book was first published in 2000, under the reluctantly revised title, Killing Adam, due to widespread censorship on the Internet. After enduring constant publisher blunders and unethical actions, as well as blatant plagiarism, Maya severed ties and pulled it from the market. Through the years, however, she’s been encouraged to get it back on the market and finally made the decision to update and republish this work but with its original title, Pussywhipped. She believes the timing is right, considering the heightened awareness of the incendiary state of gender politics in this country, and its far-reaching effects on our society, especially our children.

Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Pussywhipped: The Emasculation of Humanity?

Maya Emmett: My dad. Starting at a very early age, my mother began telling me awful things about men, but I knew she had to be wrong. Of the three of us, I was the “why” child. I had to know the answer, the truth, to everything I overheard and read. Continue reading 5 Minutes, 5 Questions With… Maya Emmett, author of “Pussywhipped: The Emasculation of Humanity”
