BOOK DRAMA ~ AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT ~ JADA PEARL





 Entwining old school romance and erotica, Nicola Motley (Jada Pearl) is set to bring you a stand out reading experience from the normal approach on contemporary fiction. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Jada Pearl started writing when she was 13 years old. She always had a strong passion for stories. So much so that she began working in the Detroit Public Library and soaked in all the books she read. Her love for writing was reinforced when her job hosted a Romantic Reader's of Michigan meeting. Being around other authors and learning how they developed their craft, Jada knew there was nothing more that she wanted to do. She wanted to make sure that everyone who read her stories were able to put themselves in the place of the main character.
When she isn't penning, Jada Pearl spends her time with family and friends, setting up workshops for the community to learn computer skills and is CEO of her Event Planning Company, Lasting Memories. She currently resides in Southfield, MI with her sons.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? 
When I was around 13, the writing bug got a hold of me as I started out writing poems,  and short stories.

Where do your ideas come from? 
Mostly dreams, some of what I see and life experiences. 
 
How long does it take you to write a book? 
It all depends but normally 3-5 months.
 
Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you?  
Haha  I'm all over the place sometimes but I do prefer the outline method it keeps me focused.

How do you think you’ve evolved creatively? 
That's a hard one, if I look at myself from back in my 20s and  30s,  I would say I have evolved immensely, but I know I have a lot of growing to do.

What is the hardest thing about writing? 
Finding extensive  time to write, love scenes.

What is your work schedule like when you're writing? 
I write in the early mornings and late at night
 
What is your latest release and what's next? 
Latest release is: Let Me Love You 2 which releases Monday,  July 25th. Next is a re-release of my very first book, What He Wanted.

Book Review ~ Eternal Bloom by Kenitra Jordan





Raised to honor her vows, "till death do you part, in good times and bad times," Aiyana Adams tries to be the perfect life compliment to her husband: prominent attorney Kalb Adams. But the facade of a perfect life, is soon shattered when Aiyana learns the sinister truth about her husband...now, how will she get out? How will she keep her children? How will she survive the adversity thrown at her, and still manage to pull her children and herself out of the fire?



My Two Cents

As a domestic violence survivor I applaud all works of art that bring this issue to market. Kenitra Jordan spun a heart wrenching tale of the cycles of abuse, and how hard they are to break. This book evoked very strong emotions in me. I hated Kalb's mother and felt almost no sympathy for him even though I understood his motivations. My heart wept for Aiyana although I was frustrated by her circumstances. The author painted such vivid pictures that I often had to walk away from the book. All is all it was a very powerful read and I highly recommend it.

Book Review ~ Blaque Widow by Allison Grace


Taryn Durand believed in happily ever after but the man she married didn't believe in her. After being married to someone that didn't love her or want her happiness she sought it out on her own in a way no one imagined. Taryn eventually gets her mind, body and soul right and in that she meets Asher. There's something different about Asher yet he knows there's something different about Taryn. Soon the differences that keep them apart will bring them together and they will be fighting to either stay together or live their lives separately. Will true love prevail?




My Two Cents 
Blaque Widow is a suspenseful page turner that highlights the consequences of  domestic abuse. The story draws you in from page one and doesn't let you go until the end. Allison paints bold characters and scenes that speeds up your pulse and stops your breath. You will follow Taryn on an emotional journey of abuse, madness, and possible redemption and you won't be disappointed.
