New Book: black girl love

black girl love is the latest from Anondra ‘Kat’ Williams, creator of  Sipping On Ink…The Colored Chronicles. It’s available now on Kindle & Nook  for $2.99 or can be purchased in paperback beginning April 1.

Here’s the synopsis:

black girl love is a collection of well-crafted contemporary stories told from a black girl’s perspective on life and loving other “grown” black girls. Full of highs, lows and sex thrown in the middle of, black girl love contains twenty-five stories covering life, love and sex, featuring characters you will love, hate and want to fuck all at the same time.

Kat writes with a sparseness that offers the reader the chance to imagine themselves as the main character in each story. She touches on everyday situations that all can relate to along with the added bonus of erotica because life just wouldn’t be the same without it….

Tapestries of Faith: Black SGLBT Stories of Triumph, Family, Love & Healing is an anthology about the lives and stories of Black same gender loving bisexual and trans people to be published in June 2011.

Publisher Azaan Kamau says, “This book is an important contribution to African-American history. Glover Lane Press is honored to be the publishing house to bring these stories to the world.”

Tapestries of Faith will speak to the often invisible contributions of African-American same gender loving bisexual and trans people to the Black power movement and the Black community at large and the richness of their cultural experiences and presence as a whole. A transformative tool for academic study and educational presentations, Tapestries of Faith will have four sections rarely explored in mainstream “gay” life. Also forthcoming is the DVD with interviews with key figures in Black SGLBT history.
