I'm Bookin on Ya!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Recently I was invoved in a project sponsored by a group known as ACAM, an organization which invited authors to utilize its site to make monthly installments of their books available on a pay-as-you-go basis. This plan, while innovative, was plagued with the gliches and complications that made its implemation problematic. So, now, I have elected to withdraw from the ACAM experiment and, instead, take advantage of the exposure provided by this site.

Thanks to the kind indulgence of AALBC’s founder, Troy Johnson, starting next Monday, I will be serializing my novella in a chapter-a-week format, right here on "Cynique’s Corner".

Hope you'e curious enough to check out "The Only One" episodes. Especially since the only thing you’ll have to spend is about 15 minutes a week of your time. Thanks!

Cynique

Carole Everly is bright, attractive and a lover of books. In fact, when it came to her romantic fiascos, she could’ve written one. Carole is also versatile which is why, in the absence of a steady boyfriend, she has currently found other diversions to embrace. These diversions suddenly take on a new twist when Troy Briggs swaggers into her place of employment and instead of deferring to the favorable reaction of Carole, he yields to the alluring distraction of their co-worker, Debbie Marlowe.

Recently-divorced, the survivor of a stormy marriage, cool, handsome Troy Briggs is back in the mix, hungry to sample a different flavor of seduction. Enter Debbie Marlowe. In addition to her luscious blond hair, and creamy vanilla skin, what Troy sees in her inviting blue eyes is what really stirs his appetite!

With the characters all cast, the stage is soon set for "the plot to thicken", and as the book unfolds, “The Only One” tells its story of how, with Troy Briggs as the prize, a plucky “sista girl" vies with a perky “Barbie doll” in the competition to nail this stud who makes their hearts pound.

Also stalking the plot is a vicious serial killer who has his own way of dealing with the rocky road to romance, and Carole Everly is just his type!

Full of drama, suspense, and humor, “The Only One” is an urban-contemporary slice of life, - a compelling novel that explores the complicated relationships that define black love.

Hey Cynique! This is great! I actually tried to read your book...but I got lost at that ACAM website. It was not user friendly and I gave up. (I have the attention span of a gnat and forgot to come back here and mention the problems I had w/the gliches on that other website.) So anyway, I'm looking forward to reading this one.

I've been occupied with the task of updating "The Only One" since it was orginally written 10 years ago, so I'm behind in my reading, not to mention that I've developed a short attention span, too. But checking out your book "The Velvet Closet" is on my" to-do" list.

Thank you ALL.for making this a fun place to visit!

I do know the A Chapter a Month site is working through all its kinks. Hopefully when they relaunch things will be much better. In the meantime i hope you enjoy Cynique's story as much as I did.

Hi,

Starting Monday February 6th, installments of my novella "The Only One" will be appearing on this board. To set the scene, and introduce the main characters, the first 2 chapters will start things off. Thereafter, depending on how long they are, either one or two chapters will run once a week.

I invite you all to tag along on this trip through the lives and loves of people all in pursuit of that elusive dream that delivers their "Only One". You'll smile, you'll sigh, you'll identify. But, most of all, I hope you'll enjoy. See Ya.

Cynique
