Hope for Her (Hope Series Book #1) was released on October 1st and it had a great release day, and 5 days later, it is still in the top 100 in African American Romance. I also received some great feed back from readers. Here are a couple of my favorites:
“Speechless, Mouth open, shaking my head, laughing, crying, smiling.”
“This book touched my heart, made it ached, and ripped it right out.”
One reader even declared Hope for Her, her favorite book this year. Considering it’s October, I thought that was pretty cool. haha.

Sydney Quotes the Movies
Classic Denzel Washington and another good director outing for Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, anyone!!)
Some of my favorite lines perfectly delivered by Mr. Washington:
“Change your world.” His advice to a troubled young lady.
“Old man got to be the old man. Fish got to be a fish.” His take on the classic novel, The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway.
“Hit it on something stupid.” As to why he had cuts and bruises on his knuckles.
“When you pray for the rain, you have to deal with the mud, too.” Great advice to anyone.
“Progress, Not Perfection.” Advice to his coworker.
Loved this movie.
