ntimate Conversation with VegasClarke
CLARKE developed a passion for writing while becoming an avid reader of all kinds of fiction. Once Vegas and Clarke were reunited, they were able to combine Vegas' street smarts and Clarke's school smarts, creating literary magic while focusing on real-life realities. Clarke graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Communications Studies with a minor in Pan-African Studies. Since then she has changed fields and works in Corporate America, where she is working on a Masters in Business Administration.

Clarke- I wanted to write about things that women could relate to and raise awareness about the issues that women go through. While dealing with certain situations, women have to maintain their dignity and strength at all times.
Check out the SNITCH video book introduction, here: http://bit.ly/exeRWB
SNITCH is a sexy urban tale that will make you think twice about who you can trust. It all begins with César Lopez aka Drape, a savvy street hustler who thinks he’s on top of the world. He has no plans of relinquishing his crown as King Pen of the Streets; but the love of his life Diona has a different agenda.
The drug game becomes a gamble when fast money, sex, and violence all collide and the chips fall hard. In comes Shorty, a gangsta chick with a bodacious body ready to betray anyone who threatens her livelihood. Love, trust, and loyalty are tested in this wild tale of sex and deception. Eventually, Drape’s back is against the wall and classified information gets exposed. Soon, no one know what side they’re on …but best believe they’ll pay a hefty price; jail time or death. Who will be this hustler’s downfall?
The main characters are Drape, Shorty, and Diona. Drape is a guy who is from the streets and heads a crew called the Scrilla Boys. Drape is attractive, has money, cars, but he lets the streets get the best of him.
Shorty is Drape’s ride or die chick, which has been in love with him for years. She is willing to do anything for Drape; however she can’t understand why he won’t make a commitment to her. Of course in real life, there’s always a woman lurking somewhere just waiting to scoop your man up!
Diona, Drape’s main lady aka “wifey,” comes from the suburbs and happens to fall in love with a “bad boy,” going against the wishes of her family. She endures many lonely nights, cheating and being left alone with a baby. Even though she is not from the streets, she deals with much drama because of the streets.
Even though it is fiction, this book is also different because many other authors are out of touch with what really goes on in the streets and the reality. In order to raise awareness, people want to be able to relate in some type of way, no matter how big or small.
Intimate Conversation with Kendall Banks
Check out the Video Introduction for One Night Stand by Kendall Banks, here: http://bit.ly/e1Uu8W
Zaria, who’s always looking for love falls head over heels for Hardy, a man she met only once. His routine is to sleep with women, then forget he ever met them. Problem…Zaria refused to be played. In addition, Hardy never took the time to explore Zaria’s background.
The aspects of realism come from too many parts of the book. I’ve been sworn to secrecy, so can’t say. The only thing I can tell you is that a lot of Hardy’s behaviors are real and the consequence has been changed to protect the innocent. Go ahead, “say, ahhhh.” Drool at the mouth and then go to Amazon to order your copy.
Another event is when Hardy , the man Zaria has one of her One Night Stands with realizes he can’t just have a good time for one night and get away with it. His family is threatened and things spiral out of control all too quick. Even with the police involved, no one can stop Zaria after feeling like she’s been hurt one time too many.

In 1996, Carla was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Over the years, the disease has halted her, but she refuses to let it stop her. She is currently working on a number of other projects that she plans to have published in the near future.
In 2002, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in journalism from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama. After graduation, Carla decided not to pursue her career in journalism. Her heart and mind were elsewhere. She wanted to write fiction novels and short stories, something that she had been doing since she was a young girl.
In 2005, Carla published her first novel, Fling and from there several short stories which appeared in anthologies across the country. Finally, she landed a book deal with Life Changing Books which released the wildly anticipated novel, the Available Wife in January 2011. Readers can reach author Carla S. Pennington on FaceBook and Twitter as: carlapennington. Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

3. Putting your trust in the wrong person: It so hard to know who you should trust and who you shouldn’t trust these days. People come off so sweet and loving but you soon find out that the person is the total opposite of what you thought they were. Let’s face it…some people are good actors. Then throw in the mix you trusted someone who caused irreparable damage to you or your family members. You feel betrayed because you trusted someone who you later find out isn’t who or what they said they were and in some accounts turned out to be the devil in disguise. You then feel guilty for allowing this person into your circle because you not only put yourself at risk you also put your family and friends in harms way.
