New Creole Novel Explores Young African-American Women's Experiences

 

Battered Suitcase Press launches a new novel from Louisiana author and Center for Black Literature fellow, Maggie Collins. CELESTIAL BLUE SKIES is a heart-tugging tale of family, poverty, death, and redemption in the Creole South.

 

In Belle Place, Louisiana, where the sugarcane grows a mile high to the bright blue sky, Celeste struggles with her mentally ill mother, Tut, and works with her grandmother Maymay to hold the Creole Bastille family together. Celeste has bigger dreams for her life, and is falling for the handsome and wealthy Vashan. But, when Tut runs away to live with the man she met working in the sugarcane to escape her reputation as the town whore, Maymay fears that Celeste will end up like her mother. And just as things are finally looking up for Tut, her past returns with violent, tragic results. Will Celeste end up like her mother, or will she redeem her family from the hoodoo curse that haunts them? And will she find love with someone from a culture just as exotic as her own?

Middle Grade Fiction About Dogs For Review
http://amzn.to/1EPnZqb

A Place to Call Home: Toby's Tale
By G. A. Whitmore
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Published: February 2014
ISBN: 978-1478700739
ASIN: B00IX32I2Y
Genre: Middle Grade Fiction
Formats Available For Review: Print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), Kindle, nook, pdf

Every rescue dog has a tale to tell, a story uniquely their own. A Place to Call Home is Toby’s tale. His story takes you on a journey across the country from California to Connecticut and across the spectrum of life’s emotional and spiritual experience.

Born on a small farm in northern California, Toby narrowly escapes the death sentence imposed on him by his breeder. Through a series of events driven by good intentions, he finds himself in a Connecticut suburb where life with his new family soon collapses on him, and his newfound happiness is brutally destroyed.

On his quest to find a place to call home, Toby encounters and endures the best and worst of humanity as he comes face to face with sorrow and joy, fear and courage, and ultimately, with the power of love.

Based on a true story, A Place to Call Home is a middle-grade novel for dog lovers of all ages.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book is donated to an organization of the author’s choice that promotes and advocates for the protection and welfare of dogs.

Hi, Everyone!

I'm Kate Evangelista, a YA author. I was wondering if you can help me. I wrote an M/M YA romance and posted it on Swoon Reads. The way it works is that the more people who read, rate, and leave a comment on it gives the book a bigger chance of getting published. It's like The Voice of publishing. If you'd like to read it, here's the link: http://www.swoonreads.com/m/disclaimer-i-like-boys


I appreciate all the help I can get.

Kate
