looking forward to feed back from y'all!
It is not strictly a romance and from what I'm told by the males who have read it, it can possibly appeal to men too.  :beermug:

It's kinda hard for an author to hide but I hid quite well for years while writing a newspaper column under this nom de plume. But once my first book hit back in 2007, it became increasingly difficult to do so. This latest book is under my real name and now my whole baxide is out in the road.
All I can do now is keep it tidy... :rotfl:

Hope you all will spread the word and support yours truly.

My latest Novel
folks,
I have a new novel out on the shelves.
It is titled "Across from Lapeyrouse"

It is available:
On Amazon (worldwide) for KINDLE and in paperback

Barnes and Noble for NOOK and in paperback

personally autographed copies available at:
Commess University
(supplies running low for the paperback!)

also in Toronto at:
A Different Booklist

in Trinidad at:
Paper Based Bookshop
Reader's Bookshop
Tales 'N Treasures

Overview
Jeneva is growing into a startling beauty, but she's not your typical young girl; she's the youngest of the Savanoys, a high profile Trinidadian family. Her father is the chief of police; her mother: beautiful, talented, tormented and distant. Her protective older brother can't shield her from life's bruises if he can't deal with his own fears. And Jeneva herself is growing into a testing adulthood, full of uncertainty and sudden lust, shining moments and stifling tension.

Hers is a family with secrets, and they are not the only ones. Everyone wears masks as intriguing, as deceptive and as weighty as the elaborate masquerade costumes the Savanoy Carnival Group creates each year to compete in Trinidad's Dimanche Gras Competition. And as each secret is revealed, Jeneva faces difficult decisions, adventure, heart break and some seriously sizzling sex.

Author Nathalie Taghaboni deftly weaves the lives of her characters in and out of the pulsing Caribbean culture. The glorious street theatre that is Trinidad Carnival is a fitting backdrop for the drama that Jeneva seems to attract.


critical review:
Never before has carnival, sand, soca and sex met in such a combustible mixture! Across From Lapeyrouse conjures it all as we fall in love with Jeneva Marie, the queen of the bands. The Savanoy family lives large in the pages of this trail blazing work by a Trini expat. You can hear the twang and see the streets of Port of Spain and Toronto as the story unveils with brilliant style and shrewd story telling.

_______________

Hope you folks grab a copy and read. Let me know what you think! The book has its own facebook page or you can review it on Amazon/Barnes and Noble!

thank you

Mr-Fix-it, the one son I have now making sure he emptying my pockets. He's going off to university this fall and for some reason this place like to gouge out students/parents - a heinous arrangement. No one should do this to me without at least buying me dinner first.

alright, so we are getting closer to the decision.
Looks like a purchase not a lease. The mister got himself a lease, so two leases makes no sense.
Waiting on the dealer to get his act together and write down a price that we can't refuse. Will hopefully post a shot of the new chariot soon.

boy ah wish.
Since I small I wanted a Jag eh, the ticket on the window say $88K, but I know the car look sweet but does ride wrongy-tongy after two trips to the grocree. Dem ting not in my reach. Have to sell more than 2 book.
we were across the street looking at a 2010 B'mer when I spot the black Jag and nearly get lick down to run across and take a snap fuh yuh.
Since the talk start I have test driven a Subaru BRZ - sweet lil ride but no back seat. It might to be a lease option because it en look like it would last longer than the Red House fire.
Drove a Hyundai Velostar, again, same ting, sweet ride as it new but it en look wholesome.
Now looking at a Jetta and one other but taking my sweet time.
I like car shopping and the mister like no better joke. He have me looking at cars I never even hear bout. Nissan have something called a JIVE. Every see it? Sweet rear and in front look like somebody mash it.

y'know if yuh dumb down yuh writin style and do a fifty shades of grey type a book...yuh could lease a bentley arnage without blinking

I tried dumbing down a few times. And sometimes I WAS dumb and didn't have to try.  :D
I've been accused of "trying a ting" when I was caught dumbing down. A professor once accused me of trying to make him look stupid when I pretended I didn't catch what he said. Another woman cuss me from a to z...so, ah give up and now I just stay real. Who like it, nice, Who doh like it, nice.
I've never read Shades of Grey so can't really comment. I've read some "best sellers" and wondered how come? I've read some back-of-the-shelf books and wondered why they weren't bestsellers.
Another part of the problem is that since I write with a huge Caribbean flavour, it doesn't appeal to the large publishers. It's why I created my own independent publishing company. We have a LOT of talent out there. I help them self publish.
The most painful part of what I do is when I hear a Trinidadian bookseller tell me "Trinis don't read".  ???  :bs:
yet, we line up to buy Harry Potter but would ask a local author to give we a bligh or family pricing on their book.  ::)

but...I shall struggle on...s'what I do. The Bentley will have to wait.
