It’s a summer of love, with erotic romance featuring diverse couples:
Ride or Die is a spin-off novella from the ebook RUSH.
While I’ve worked on a number of novellas for the RUSH OMG (Outlaw Motorcycle Gang) series, I’ve decided that Turk’s story should be the next release. Ride or Die is also connected to the ebook CHERISH, the tale of a young black woman raised by a religious cult.
An excerpt of Ride or Die is included in the Sneak Peek of IVY LEAGUE, that will be up on Amazon.com shortly.
And another, and still others as I work to build my own brand in the world of publishing.
For example, the historical fantasy novel Long Ago and Far Away, featuring these two lovers:
Spawned these sister-witches:
An extended sneak peek of Long Ago and Far Away will be up on Amazon later this week.
That book somehow inspired this novella on a young black woman raised by a religious cult, and how she’s instrumental in taking the leader down. Here’s a promo I’ve worked on for the novel:
Look for the ebook CHERISH in May.
Finally, I’ve got another book featuring an Asian leading man and an African leading lady. Nyesha is from Nigeria, and Takeshi is Japanese.
To read a brief excerpt from the book, continue reading:
I’ll be updating this post throughout the day and linking more excerpts.

Then the fast paced The Emissary may be the scifi novella for you:
There, I said it. My family already knows and they’re fine with it, because they love Nate and Nick Diaz too.
That’s why I took a little bit of Nate’s “I don’t give a fuck, just gimme my check” personality for the lead male in this upcoming novella:
The TAKEDOWN – the rocky romance of two MMA fighters who come up against an opponent neither one of them are prepared for.
The Takedown is a book that features several other characters from ebooks I’ve written, like Derek and Nicole from The Stone Boy, Ethan and Torii from At Last, among others. I’ll have a free extended excerpt up on Amazon as my
March Madness final four.
I’ve got a number of other books that I’d readying for release, so I’m not able to blog as often as I’d like until I get these other stories published that are much longer reads.
Excerpt from The Takedown:
Didn’t I blow your mind this time . . .
Sly kept playing with my hand. “Why’d you start calling yourself ‘The Bastard?’ ”
“I didn’t chose it. It’s what I’ve been called ever since I was a kid.” I changed my voice to imitate Jelly’s. “Killian, you little fookin’ bastard.”
“Oh, so if you say it, then it can’t hurt you, huh? So you’ve turned the tables and made it into a badge of honor.” That was the thing about Sly. She was wise beyond her years, especially when she added, “But that’s a shitty label to stick on a kid. If you don’t mind I’m not gonna call you that.”
“You might end up using it,” I mumbled, refusing to meet her eyes.
“Not unless you’re planning on doing something to make me call you that. Is that what you’re saying?
“I’ve been told the name suits me.”
“So you’ve decided to live up to it? Or, excuse me, are you’re gonna live down to acting like a bastard?”
I rubbed at my temples. This conversation was starting to give me a headache. “Are we gonna fuck again or not?” After her sharp intake of breath I expected to hear a ton of profanity directed my way. Instead she just stared at me real hard, and I mean really hard. I blinked first. “Ay, you know I didn’t mean for it to come out that way.”
“I think you already know my answer.”
“Aw come on, Sly.”
“No, you come on. I thought you were ready for me, but you’re not.” She slipped out of bed, sitting on the edge of the mattress with her back to me. All it did was give me a real good look at her fine brown apple bottom. “It’s cool though,” she sniffed, as if last night never happened. “I won’t go storming off like some little bitch. I’m gonna use your bathroom and then I’ll take a taxi home.”
“What if I don’t want you to go?”
Why should guys have all the fun? Especially since women can be powerful and sexy. And tough. And tender. And go all out for what we want.
As the saying goes, A picture is worth a thousand words:
What I’m up to: Finishing a number of books for release.

More to come . . .
The beautiful woman with the hourglass figure gracing the cover of author Nichelle Gainer’s book “Vintage Black Glamour” is actress/singer Eartha Kitt.
So don’t let anyone tell you that black people didn’t have a middle class or wealth during segregation and during the swinging 60s, because there are a number of photos and writings that prove otherwise. From Madame C J Walker, to sports heroes, educators, inventors, businessmen and businesswomen and entertainers, African Americans resided in a variety of socio-economic lifestyles.
We were, and still are, not a monolithic group. Whether through education or ambition, undeniable talent or heart stopping beauty, blacks back in the day became successful in spite of obstacles like inequality.
The book Vintage Black Glamour can be purchased on Amazon
Brief bio on Eartha Kitt from The Guardian.com:
” ‘Once called the “most exciting woman in the world” by Orson Welles, Kitt became a singer and dancer whose suggestive and sensuous performances captured the public imagination in the 1950s. Her former lover Charles Revson, the billionaire founder of Revlon cosmetics, even created a lipstick for her, calling it Fire and Ice. In the 1960s she made the role of Catwoman her own when she became the first black woman to achieve mainstream TV success in America with Batman, even breaking racial taboos by flirting on screen with Adam West in the lead role.’ ” – Adam Luck

I also needed a smaller GIF for social media in order to promote HUI
“My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn’t sleep for the excitement of our first date,” he told HELLO!. “That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal. I’d never gone after anything in my life with such passion in all my life. I just knew she was the one.”
– David Bowie. Quote from OKAY magazine.
Like a number of Bowie’s fans, I’m in shock over his death.
Bowie’s music was a major part of my life. And his declaration of love for Iman in the OKAY mag quote above, could have been written for a romance novel. In the same interview, Bowie stated that he was already naming their children when he met IMAN. It’s something anyone would want to hear from the person she (or he) loves. RIP David Bowie. Your genius and talent will be missed.
I’ve got another new release, this time in the paranormal genre.
First though, Wikkid.Sexy.Cool books is now on Instagram. So I worked on a new promo for HUI that features the female lead, Imani:
Paranormal for the people means stories that not only feature a variety of creatures who go bump in the night, but also inclusiveness and diversity in the world building when those beings are in human form.
So, this year I’ve added adult fiction to my YA, New Adult and YA paranormal bookshelf.
Next up will be a greater focus on my Afro-futurism works, like:
