Additional Information

Gripping and Honest Akeme - Your novel is a work of uncompromising, honesty,and nail-biting action that slowly builds up to a suspenseful ending that I am sure will lead to another book. The realism of the dialogue made me feel as if I were eavesdropping on a private conversation. Although not a unique idea to have the various characters' point-of-view tell the story, I thought the premise was great. Two of Hearts held my attention to the very end. The twists and turns weren't as tight as a Agatha Christie mystery, but I think that was the intention as this was not a true mystery. You've got a great new voice that is sorely needed in this genre. I think your readers will find a certain truth within themselves! Wow Denica - The core of your character's emotional angst is boldly told not so much through their actions but rather their words and thoughts. Nazir especially seems to be closer to your heart...why is that? Although he seemed to have the stronger storyline, it was enigmatic HE that I was more drawn to. I am curious to know who he is and not that I was disappointed not learning his identity (sequel?)at the end, I was, however, curious as to how this will further play out. You have a very strong narrative voice. I think this much better than the first novel of E. Lynn Harris and James Earl Hardy. To see love so unconstrained is such a rarity in novels. You have a very distinctive voice. You have set a very high standard in fiction. Best wishes. Well, well, well... It seems you have a lot going on: love, sex, obsession, emotional manipulation, black gay domestic violence... I like the how your characters compromise themselves to love and be loved. How many of us in real life can relate to that?! There is a lot of description, were you influenced by Toni Morrison? I didn't lose interest because, if I am wrong, it was laying the groundwork towards the end of the book (which I think was a little rushed, but this being your first?) I won't hold that against you. The action was well-paced, I wasn't rushed because, as in real life, things take time to form and I found myself being inside the charatcers' heads, like that HE! This is in the tradition of James Earl Hardy but way better than E. Lynn Harris. I'm glad there is a new breed of black writers whose characters have so much angst they should probably be talking to Dr. Phil. The emotional baggage that drives your characters is so rare that even the sex comes with issues. There is so much to navigate and I think you did an excellent job in bringing it to the fore. Thanks for a new voice, much success! I read and re-read your book and I thought it was mysterious, sexy, and I cannot wait until the sequel...there's going to be a sequel, right? Thanks for signing it for me! Your novel is a work of uncompromising, honesty,and nail-biting action that slowly builds up to a suspenseful ending that I am sure will lead to another book. The realism of the dialogue made me feel as if I were eavesdropping on a private conversation. Although not a unique idea to have the various characters' point-of-view tell the story, I thought the premise was great. Two of Hearts held my attention to the very end. The twists and turns weren't as tight as a Agatha Christie mystery, but I think that was the intention as this was not a true mystery. You've got a great new voice that is sorely needed in this genre. I think your readers will find a certain truth within themselves! I thought your first book was great in that I became very interested in what drove the actions of your various characters. By exploring their thoughts which dictated their actions, I felt as I were eavesdropping on their sessions with a shrink. The issues you explore haven't really been upon in other books. The honesty in which you write should garner you many fans, and thank you for a breath of fresh air. It seems most novels now are just about sex, but you manage to move the story forward, as if it were a character itself. Looking forward to the sequel!

Through these flawed characters, and their complications, the reader must ask themselves: Just how far would YOU go for love?

Two of Hearts Facebook Group
TWO of HEARTS proves that appearances are deceiving, in more ways than one. The focus of this debut novel is on the flawed character. Every one of the characters has a little bit of darkness in them, even the 'heroes' Nazir Malcolm Bashir and Devery DeWayne Dawson.

Publish America ISBN 1-4241-9266-8
Six months after the suicide of fashion designer-adult film star-crack head Reynaldo Keram Gilliam, and the once highly-publicized romantic menage-a-trois he shares with Nazir Malcolm Bashir and Devery Dewayne Dawson falls apart, an unknown first love now believes he has a second chance at love. Nazir’s and Devery’s mourning period is derailed when they meet three men whose sweet facades mask a savage, dark side that transforms the beauty of love. Omigod D’haiti, Auddonis Greer and Massiah believe they have what it takes to become someone very special; someone strong, sexy and sensitive. One of these three wants to be the one who seduces and charms Nazir and Devery, body and soul. As unwitting objects of desire and unwilling victims, Nazir and Devery find themselves trapped between links in their pasts, which consumes them in an obsession of a stalker.
