Dope Dealer

Just wanted to say thanks to all of my readers for being patient for me as I slowly day by day get out of my writing slump and now begin my divorce. I haven't had the motivation to finish or revise the pending novels on my desk. 

My friend told me to write poetry to get my creative juices flowing. It's been helping greatly. I've been working hard to get it together and am hoping to begin novel writing again in the weeks to come. Meanwhile check out one of my favorite poems that I've recently wrote. 


Dope Dealer
(To All Art Hustlers and Feens)

I've always wanted to be a dope dealer!

jeans sagged to my hips
slinging words in the park
People smoking my books
with grabba leaf and then spark

Dope dealer.
taking brains from hood to odd
stealing away letters
making them good to God.

Reading my words
should equate to
holding a cocaine-filled spoon to a flame
smoking rock
sniffing glue
injecting the bloodstream
with my name

and if it's you
the unlucky one
to get hooked on me,
then call your doctors.
They'll recognize the symptoms easily
sore throat, sneezing, coughing, runny nose, and skull fractures
Let's get into the fact of
sisters putting heating pads to relieve chest pains
cause they feel my words deep within their sternums
causing blood to stain
underwear.
At night, 
they sneak out to burn them.

I want my verb choices
to incite
bad decision-making in life
to yank heads out of the box
to bring more pleasure than cock
to inspire murals on ghetto blocks
to birth a new Tupac

to force families to hold interventions
tears spilling from eyes
with good intentions
because
they don't get why their son is now rocking dreadlocks
and saying that the government lies
and
how he's traveling in my drug-induced reality
with shook fists,
numb skin,
but open eyes.

I want to be a Boss!

poetic gangster
killing them
from Black to Hindu.
I'm about to start literary beefs
like bloods and crips do,
splicing commas
and then
continue
to brainstorm
and
rape the norm.

and when it's all done. . .

I want my words to be sentenced
to 25 years to life
so that after my death
my rhymes are flashlights through others' strife.

I want my words to be a person's 
first drug,
first orgasm
first love
I want my name
in a book labeled presenting the Best of. . .

My love of Street Art!

I'm Miami all day, baby! But when I party, it's not at South Beach. It's WYNWOOD Art District.




Sounds familiar?

The area has been discussed in my books. Some novels that come to mind are. . .The Muse (gallery opening), Sexual Deception (whole book is set there), etc



Wood Bar, one of my favorite spots


Regardless, more books will be set in Wynwood and explore the crazy scene.



Building owners don't mind the art as long as their info is on there too.

The best way to know you're in Wynwood is to see all of the amazing street art covering every damn building in that area!! 




Even the sidewalks, streets, doorways and phone poles are covered.


















I love art, but Street art has a special lure for me. It entangles my senses at times. . .


















The Raw and unapologetic part of this genre just grabs me!


The terms "urban art", "guerrilla art", "post-graffiti" and "neo-graffiti" are also sometimes used when referring to artwork created in these contexts.



Traditional spray-painted graffiti artwork itself is often included in this category, excluding territorial graffiti or pure vandalism.



















Why am I saying all of this?

A book is coming people! It's in me to explore characters in the Street Art world!





Every time I come to the district, adrenaline fills my veins! I'm a kid in a real Alice in Wonderland!


And let me tell you. . . Wynwood never disappoints at night!! There will be more blogs on this amazing place as well as stories!!


Kenya signing out, bitches!

(sorry, I call my friends bitches.Take comfort in that.)

Release schedule, apology, and news on Theirs to Crave.

I almost did it. . . 
put some bullshit out, 
say it's a worthy novel, 
and all 
for the sake of meeting a release day.

Theirs to Crave
is not what it should be and 
I need to regroup and revise.

There's a huge problem I have as an author, which is being on time with my release schedule. 

I'm not dependable as I should be.

Due to that, I rushed a story when I should have focused on craft.

I'm a work in progress, myself. 

In my head, I can write 6 books this summer, take care of my three kids, work my full time job, and finish up my MFA in writing. 

The reality is something very different. There's only so many hours in a damn day (I'm learning how to change that stupid fact).

My support system is different now too as a newly separated mother.

All I can say is that my plan is to own up, regroup, organize my release schedule with logic in mind, and finish off this year with your faith in my dependability.

I believe I can earn your faith from action.

Theirs to Crave will not be released today. In two weeks, I am going to post a new release schedule for the remaining 2014 books I had planned.

This schedule will be on point and include the  remaining 2014 release information for Courting with Chaos, Book 3 for Coventon Campus, Book 3 for Chasing Love Series, Book 3.5 & 4 for Santeria Habitat series, The completion of Sexual Deception, Book 2 for the Sin Series & Dark Art series

I'm also going to do a better job of updating you all weekly on what I'm working on, so you can see how insane I am with my writing.

So. . .thanks all for dealing with my mania! Feel free to comment to a sister!

Good or Bad: Deadly Sex Play in Erotic Romance?


Warning:  Steamy GIFS and IMAGES.



Love in Haiku explores erotic asphyxiation (also known as breath control play).












I know what some of you may be thinking. . .Kenya is definitely journeying down the dark erotic path this year.












I've always wanted to explore this topic. The first time I was introduced to it, was the film Rising Sun with Wesley Snipes and Sean Connery.












Like Love in Haiku, the film was set in Tokyo and discusses breath control play.

So before we go further, let's explain what erotic asphyxiation is for all the normal readers out there.




(According to Wikipedia) Erotic asphyxiation or breath control play is the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal. The sexual practice is variously called asphyxiophilia, autoerotic asphyxia, hypoxyphilia. Colloquially, a person engaging in the activity is sometimes called a gasper.




Author George Shuman describes the effect as such, "When the brain is deprived of oxygen, it induces a lucid, semi-hallucinogenic state called hypoxia





Combined with orgasm, the rush is said to be no less powerful than cocaine, and highly addictive.




So why touch this topic instead of the other very normal ways to have sex?

I like to write books that I would be interested in reading. I like to see and experience things I would never do in real life but have the ability to explore through a novel.



So as I always do, I searched out books that already wrote about erotic aphixation as well as researched the topic. I even interviewed several people that actually enjoy breath control play (very interesting interviews).

What I discovered is that there are not really any erotic romance novels dealing with it. Additionally, I only found a few people even willing to discuss it.

 The mortality rate of autoerotic asphyxia range from 250 to 1000 deaths per year in the United States.

Author Ashley Ladd discussed that 

"Writers have responsibilities to our readers and one is safety. When our characters engage in sex, we are often reminded by our diligent editors to make the characters use condoms. Unprotected sex is not something our industry promotes. Just the opposite.

I've just added erotic asphyxia and auto erotic asphyxiation (AEA) to my list of what not to write about. Should I choose to write about it, I shall do so with great care. I hope never to hear of another person dying from this or unsafe sex of any kind." (The Blog Article)



The more I researched, the less sexier this topic became. 
Doubts entered my head.



Do we have a responsibility as authors to maintain a safe example of sexual play?

I'm asking.

Part of me says that my readers are intelligent and sexually experienced women. They're not children. They can read about things without simply trying them at home.


The other part couldn't swallow a death that resulted from someone reading my novel.

My intentions is always to entertain, arouse, and hopefully teach something new to every person that picks up one of my books.


But how much exploration of Deadly Sexual Play in Novels is bad or good?


Seriously. . . Let's discuss this!!

Can you FEEL Me? MIT's Sensory Fiction Book


MIT’s Media Lab students are working on a project called “Sensory Fiction” a “wearable book” that lets you experience emotions along with the story’s characters.







The book portrays the scenery and sets the mood, and the wearable novel allows the reader to experience the protagonist's physiological emotions.






By combining networked sensors and actuators, the wearable can change lighting, sound, temperature, chest tightness and even heart rate of the reader to match what the main character in the book is going through.






















So my question to you is. . .

If every book was a wearable novel, what is the first thing you would check out or re-read?


Game of Thrones?


50 Shades?

Maybe a popular vampire novel
 where you feel the bite?

Thoughts?
