Country Living and Deadly Sins

The end of last year I moved to the country (really, there are cows, deer, horses, rabbits and raccoons!)
We (hubby & I) downsized  and believe me, that is no easy task, but I swear I'll never move again.

I've also been busy with the President's Day release of PHE Ink's second anthology, "Deadly Sins." This time I edited the entire book which was a daunting task, even though it did appeal to my OCD. I think I've found my niche and I'm very proud of the results. "Deadly Sins" is a political anthology that gives you several stories of a man so determined to become President that he'll do anything to insure his win. And when I say anything,'ll just have to read it and see.

I'd like to invite you to join PHE Ink - Writing Solutions Firm as we celebrate its 4th Birthday. It’s our birthday, but you receive the gifts. For the entire month of March, we’re giving away a title a day.

Winners will be picked from our mailing list. We will announced them
weekly on the website and social networking sites. To join our mailing list, please go to

I now have a short break before I hit the road with my literary sisters for the "Peaches in Paradise" event at the Unity Festival, March 16th in Gulfport/Biloxi, MS.

Hope to meet you there!

A Sneak Preview: When Baldwin Loved Brenden by Electa Rome Parks

There is no greater joy than the birth of a new baby, an addition to the family. Well, my 9th baby, When Baldwin Loved Brenden, drops January 29, 2013. As you must know, I'm super excited and can't wait to introduce my baby to the world, to her aunties and cousins! I recently received the sonogram and I want to share the joy:) So, here's your sneak preview!

Fair-weather friends come and go, but true friendship lasts a lifetime. Same goes for true love.

Ten years is a long time. Much can change in ten years, an entire decade. That’s how many years have passed when a former close-knit group of college friends, Baldwin, Brenden, Bria and Christopher, self-proclaimed The Group, are tragically reunited to attend the funeral of one of their own in a small North Carolina town.

The Group hasn’t seen or spoken to one another since an unfortunate set of circumstances placed their friendship in jeopardy ten years earlier. After graduation, everyone went their separate ways and never looked back, until now. The past has a way of catching up with you, sooner or later. Baldwin, the romantic, Brenden, the do-gooder, Bria, the wildchild, Christopher, the pretty boy, are all about to discover the truth in that.

Rihanna was once dubbed the peacemaker of the group. Her death reunites them for an unforgettable, poignant and life changing few days. Each friend will confront their own internal demons and leave a changed person. Secrets are revealed, hurts exposed, tears shed and laugher shared, all in the name of friendship and love.

Can anything truly tear real friendship and love apart?
