Amazon Giveaway! Win Amazon Cash & a signed copy of my book!

Hey readers! I've obviously been less active on this blog, mainly because I've been taking final exams and working on some secret projects (shhh…) that I will reveal to you all soon. Last time I was on here I did reveal my most recent publication, a compilation of poetry and literary works called Soft Eyes and Troubled Minds that I wrote with one of my best friends. And trust me, publishing a book while still in school is NOT easy.

To make up for my absence, I'm giving away a free signed copy of my book along with Amazon cash. Just in case you missed all the information about my book I'll list it below. Be sure to share this giveaway with your friends so everyone has a chance to win!

I think its important to mention that I self published this book at sixteen all by myself. Each poem I poured my heart into. It would really mean a lot to me if you guys could support me by sharing this book with others, giving me feedback, and purchasing copies for friends and family. It has a really strong message and I want everyone to hear it.


Soft Eyes and Troubled Minds is a compilation of poetry and literary works by high school students Eboni Symone Porter and Isaiah Cole Louder. It addresses complex emotions and battles an average teenager deals with everyday. It also deals with depression, suicide, love, betrayal, self-image, stress, and finding happiness. This book was not created to make thousands of dollars, win awards, or attract fame. Its purpose is simply to remind the common person that the storm will pass. Do not be afraid.

EXCERPT:

playmate 

Those poor, poor single days 
Filled with mixed emotions and desperate haze 
Delusional desire, obsession and fawning 
Causing sleepless nights and morning yawning 

She wanted love, kindness, and affection 
All he had was marijuana and an erection 
Her desperation to love was met with passionless hugs 
And piss colored beer stains on her bedroom rug 

He wanted a playmate for all day and night 
That would keep him satisfied without a fight 
Instead he got a creature with emotion and depth 
With her own desires that would never be met 

Love is not obtainable for it is simply a dream 
That causes not swooning, playmate but the need to scream 
How you disguise this reality is your blatant confusion 
For what you spend your life seeking is just an illusion

HEAT for Valentine's Day! Hidden Heat Blitz and Tasty Giveaway!


Can we just appreciate how sexy this book cover is for a second? I mean look as this bad ass girl looking like a radical feminist. Yes girl, work!


HIDDEN HEAT
Brothers of Mayhem #1
Carla Swafford



Cassidy Ryder refuses to be intimidated by anyone, even the hell-raising, hard-drinking
Brothers of Mayhem. The daughter of their former president, she’s not above
smashing a few heads to keep her teenage brother safe. But when Cassidy’s big
mouth gets her in trouble, the only thing that saves her is some quick thinking
from the Brothers’ bartender. He’s commanding and strong, and as smooth as the
whiskey he pours: the ultimate temptation for a girl who swore she’d never be a
biker’s plaything. But Thorn Savalas is no ordinary biker. He’s a cop, and he’s worked too hard
earning the Brothers’ trust to blow his cover over a female—even one who rocks
a pair of jeans like Cassidy. The only way to protect her is by claiming she’s
his old lady. Trouble is, Thorn can’t just pretend. He wants Cassidy, and every
scorching touch tells him she feels the same. But acting on their hottest
fantasies could leave them both exposed . . . even if nothing else has ever
felt so real.

Excerpt

The Brothers of Mayhem Motorcycle Club never took kindly to threats. She didn’t care. Violence was the only way they would respect her, and she was prepared to do more, if that’s what it took to bring her little brother back home. Storm had never stayed gone this long.
“Put the bat down before you get hurt.” The bartender’s soft command sounded so reasonable.
Screw reasonable. She’d been fair and understanding for the last three days while she searched for Storm. Her patience had disappeared with the only member of her family worth a damn. No way would she fail him again.
“I will when you—”
Brawny arms wrapped around her chest and squeezed. She gasped for breath as someone hauled her against his chest and off her feet. The bartender grabbed the bat from her loosened grip and threw it to the side. It hit the floor with a loud clanking.
“Little girl, we don’t know where your brother’s at. We didn’t lie about that.” The deep voice of the club’s VP, Mac McGee, came from above her head as he squeezed again in warning. “Maybe I need to teach you some fucking manners.”
