Why should readers pick up your book?
To be entertained, to disappear into this world I created for while. I want people to look forward to this book every year and can’t wait to see what my characters are up to. I want people to enjoy my writing and be one of their favorite authors.

Life is never over especially if you have friends, family and dreams life is never over especially over a mistake. If you pick up this book you will be pleased at the end and want more which you can always find on my blog for snippets of other stories to come.

What are you working next?
Eve’s Apple 2 Drama Karma Peace, Adrianne has hopes of becoming a paramedic. She’s a beautiful liar and player that plays another good stud Isis for Katrina, who’s traveled from Atlanta to make Adrianne hers and hers only. Adrianne ends up in an abusive relationship with broken friendships and deceased family; she has no one to turn to, the only person that can save her is herself. I believe that physical and mental abusive is a topic not taken seriously or talked about in the lesbian community; I hope that this starts some conversations. Forbidden Fruit are short stories about relationships that are wrong and don’t wanna be right. In addition, another poetry book, everything, will be out February 14, 2013.

What are your summer plans?
In my summer plans, my writing is number one. I’m working on Eve’s Apple 2 and Forbidden Fruit, and some other surprises on my blog. Re-launch my blog and Facebook page. I’ve been writing a lot of poetry lately on my phone, so another poetry book will be out soon; the first one is called Life’s a Motherfucka, and it’s out now. I believe the title tells you everything, and more on what it’s about: I was in a certain place in life when I wrote LAM. I still like throwing my anger into my poems, but now I’m into exploring the love and pleasure I feel before the anger….but don’t worry there will always be anger in my poetry *lol*. Working out and getting more into fitness. I think being healthy is very important and you only get one body, so treat it right.

Sistahs Sizzlin’ Read: Girl: A Story for Every Les Being


CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE/SHORT STORY
GIRL: A STORY FOR EVERY LES BEING – CHRISTIANA HARRELL

Give a brief description of your novel, Girl: A Story for Every Les Being.
Girl: A Story for every Les Being is basically a book about lesbians from all walks of life placed in crazy situations, some have dramatic outcomes and others happy cheesy endings.

Why should readers pick up your book?
Readers should pick up this book because it’s funny, it will make you angry, it will make you cry, and you never know what’s going to happen next. It’s just really great entertainment. There is something in there that anyone can relate to gay or straight.

What are you working next?
My plate is actually pretty full. Right now I am working on a lesbian erotica book called Intermission: Femme Vs. Stud, two sequels (The Replacement Man II and Beneath the Surface) to two other books I have out right now (The Replacement Man and Among Us), a book that is not LGBTQ related, and a magazine called The Link.

What are your summer plans?
I never really make summer plans because I’m not a big fan of heat. I’m sure I’ll just be laying around, drinking lots of water, doing lots of writing, and spending time with my spouse and family.
