Tiana Laveen author. Cross Climax

Tiana Laveen was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and now resides in the southern midwest with her husband, two children, and feline companion. She enjoys a fulfilling and enriching life that includes writing books, drawing, painting, listening to music, cooking, and spending time with friends.

Tiana Laveen is a uniquely creative and innovative author whose romance fiction is geared towards those who not only want to temporarily escape from the daily routines of life, but also delve into social taboo as it pertains to interracial relationships. Tiana creates a painting with words as she guides her reader into the lives of each and every main character.

Her first book series entitled “Cross Climax” tackles interracial dating, marriage, and sexual relationships head on without any false bravado. “Cross Climax I” and “Cross Climax II” allow the reader to dive headfirst into short stories that are packed with seduction, romance, and heart-pounding punch. The two novels in conjunction lead to a surprising, but fulfilling conclusion.

Her third novel, “The Slave Master’s Son,” transports readers back to a time and place where interracial relationships were not accepted by the dominant society. The novel delivers a scintillating, historical account of one family’s struggles to deal with love, lust, and consequences.

If you wish to contact Tiana Laveen, please send an email message to tianalaveen@yahoo.com or contact her at http://www.facebook.com/tianalaveen.

Living by your own rules

First time author Odessa Rose’s novel, WATER IN A BROKEN GLASS, is a wonderful addition to any book collector’s library.  She introduces us to Tonya Mimms, a sought out sculptor with the inability to commit to anything other than her art.  The manner in which Rose writes this novel is just as vivid and colorful as a newly painted portrait while at the same time drives home the lesson of being true to yourself. 

Tonya spends the majority of her life hiding out in a studio on the third floor of America’s Art Institute working on projects passed on by her mentor.  She’s been involved with men before, but never on a long term basis as something just doesn’t click with her.  Meanwhile, she’s haunted by a girl (Meyoki) that she was drawn to in high school and questions her morals while at the same time trying to convince herself that the feelings aren’t real. She’s been taught by her mother that “women ain’t supposed to run with other women” so she uses this thought as well as other teachings of going to hell if she sins in various manners.  As a result, she spends all her adult life hiding from her innermost feelings and births sculptures that reflects what her mouth is incapable of saying.                                                                                                                           
It is during one of her times of trying to get away from her thoughts that she meets Malcolm Holland and instantly takes him up on a challenge.  Just when Tonya manages to have both love and sculpting in her life, she meets Satin Pierce, an openly gay bookstore owner.  Although sexually drawn to Satin, Tonya establishes a friendship with her and teeters on the edge of fulfilling the desires stewing inside her. 

In spite of the comfort her sculptures offer, she quickly falls over the edge and a domino effect happens in her life causing her to lash out at the ones she loves as she deals with the decisions of choosing and following her heart or doing what she’s been told is the right thing to do.

Odessa Rose has painted vivid descriptions of both the characters and the scenes in WATER IN A BROKEN GLASS and has given us an engaging debut novel.  Though the book touches on homosexuality, a subject that isn’t normally approved in society, Rose has done it in a tasteful manner that helps the reader understand the character’s feelings.  The plot is driven by both the desires and the judgment of the characters while teaching us to be ourselves and not worry about trying to live our lives to the standards that society or those around us have established.

Amy Joy Tips For The Would Be Authors

13 April, 2012   
Published by Amy Joy in Fiction Tips, Nonfiction Tips, Self Publishing, The Writing Life
With indie publishing booming and e-readership expanding daily, there’s never been a better time to become a writer. As a published author and writing instructor, my advice to the “would-be” author is this:

Write your book.

Plenty of people say they are going to write a book someday, but they never do. If you’re serious, then stop talking about it and start writing.
Re-write until you never want to look at your book again.

I know this probably sounds crazy, but if you read about successful writers, you’ll find that most have this in common: by the time they finished a book, they felt like they never wanted to look at it again. This has been true in my experience, and it’s been true for my writing students as well. So, if you still like yours when you’ve finished, there’s a decent chance you haven’t revised and edited enough yet. (Unfortunately, if you don’t find the errors in your work, your reviewers will.)
Don’t skimp on editing.

Editing errors are embarrassing and hurt your credibility as a writer. Have many people beta-read your book before you publish, and use a professional editor.
Read and research everything you can about publishing.

There are so many great, free, online resources out there for writers today to learn about traditional and indie publishing. Use these. They will help you learn what you need to do and help keep you from having to learn everything the hard way.
If you go indie, use a professional cover designer.

Like it or not, your audience will judge your book first by its cover. It’s the first clue potential readers about the quality and content of the book. If the cover doesn’t appeal to them, most won’t bother to read the description or look inside.
Don’t give up.

If you really want to do this, there’s no reason you can’t. I always remind myself this: If others have done it, that means I can too! (So can you!)
