Urban Lit

Urban fiction, also known as Street lit, is a literary genre set in a city landscape; however, the genre is as much defined by the race and culture of its characters as the urban setting.

About Me:
I am 43 years old and loving books now in my life more than ever. I am rereading classic books and loving them more and more. I am really into John Steinbeck and plan to read other local authors. I love to read authors of a region, such a W. Faulkner. But it doesn't stop there! I love love Historical fiction, of British Royalty, Africa, Italy and much more! I like a pretty broad range of literature. I am trying to collect all the books that have been awarded a Pulizter Prize as well as read them all! I love collecting book and working on my library. I am married with grown children (20 and 23) and I have a wonderful grandson. I have had a knitting and book blog for a while but the main focus ended up being knitting. So very recently I have linked up with my own book blog. I am really enjoying have a place for book, comments, and reviews.

Hi, I came across your blog, and I thought you would be the perfect person to contact.

My name is Jay Siva, the founder of, an easy 'buy book' widget for authors. I'm contacting you today because I think you and your readers would love to know about the EZBuyButton widget I've created.

It is the most advanced 'buy now' widget for selling books. I make it free for authors and publishers, worldwide, to quickly and easily create and use our EZBuyButton widget to place on their website or blog to immediately increase the sales of their books, especially if their books are listed for sale in more than one retail store. I made it super easy, with just a few clicks they just copy & paste a piece of code onto their website/blog, and they're done.

The widget allows website visitors to select which device they'd like to use to read the author's book, and then select their preferred retail store that they'd like to purchase the book from. It also geolocates the visitor's location and will send the visitor to the correct country specific retail store so that they can buy the author's book. The widget is also fully customizable, and the author will have access to detailed real-time statistics of the use of their widget.

I would like to invite you to visit my website, and try out the EZBuyButton widget. I hope you find that my widget will be useful to you and your readers, including all the authors, literary agents, and publishers you're in contact with.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you. Thank you for your time.

kindest regards,
Jay Siva

Happy Holidays!

You may not know me or my work but I am the author of six critically acclaimed, award winning novels and I have been nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. On Jan 9th 2010 my debut novel SUGAR will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary and I hope you will buy a copy or to help commemorate this milestone. And yes, Kindle purchases count!

"Searing and expertly imagined." - Toni Morrison

“Bernice L. McFadden is a master storyteller.” Adriana Trigiana

"Vivid." - The New York Times

Hi Toni, I want to introduce you to you my debut novel "A Circle of souls" which is a murder, mystery, psychological thriller and a tale of justice and hope. I was wondering if you would like to review my book for your blog or sites such as Amazon. Do visit to read more about the book. If you would like to read it I can mail an advance readers copy to you. Thanks for your time in advance.

Best regards

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.
