The new year brings with it some new reading selections. I have just loaded some great reads by some wonderful writers to my Kindle. Check them out. Of course, I’ll start with my own short story collection Trouble Down South and Other Stories.
Trouble Down South and Other Stories by Katrina Parker Williams–Enslavement, murder, abuse, illness: there’s real trouble for the characters in Trouble Down South and Other Stories. The short stories take the reader on a journey to the past through a collection of interestingly crafted pieces of flawed humanness, social injustice, and redemption, and even humor. The short story collection of historical fiction chronicles events spanning more than 150 years and addresses a wide range of experiences from African-American perspectives. The stories are set in the South amid a changing landscape in which the characters are forced to wrestle with the social issues surrounding Native Americans, slavery, racism, Prohibition, World War I, the Korean War, Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, health, religion, mental illness, and education.
Another great read is by Saffina Desforges titled Sugar & Spice. When you think the unthinkable, where do you turn? Sugar & Spice is the UK #1 best-selling, controversial psycho-sexual (FULL-LENGTH) crime thriller the agents called “the last taboo“. Based on research and details from the case of Robert Black, a UK serial killer, Sugar & Spice was deemed “Too controversial for the British market.” 100,000 + readers thought otherwise. Sugar & Spice is now one of the biggest-selling e-books in the UK of 2011. It has also just been voted as a ‘Red Adept Reviews’ 2011 indie award winner for mystery!
