A Sick Life by:Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “the most effervescent and soulful girl group anyone has seen since the Supremes,” five-time Grammy Award winning supergroup TLC has seen phenomenal fame and success. But backstage, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins has lived a dual life. In addition to the balancing act of juggling an all-consuming music career and her family, Tionne has struggled with sickle-cell disease since she was a young girl―a debilitating and incurable disease that can render her unable to perform, walk, or even breathe.

A Sick Life chronicles Tionne’s journey from a childhood spent in and out of the hospital, told she wouldn’t live to see 30 or have children, to becoming the superstar musician who is still living out her life’s dream of performing. For the first time, Tionne will tell her full life story―the diagnosis, the tumultuous rise to fame, the life in the spotlight, and the hard-fought advocacy work. Through Tionne’s tough, funny, tell-it-like-it-is voice, you’ll see how the extraordinary singer and advocate found the inner strength, grit, and determination to live her dream―despite her often unpredictable and demanding health issues. She dives deep into never-before-told TLC stories, including accounts of her friendship with Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes and the tragedy of her death. Tionne’s unvarnished discussion of her disease, unending strength, and ability to power through the odds is a story like no other.

Bluebird, Bluebird by: Attica Locke
A powerful thriller about the explosive intersection of love, race, and justice from a writer and producer of the Emmy winning Fox TV show Empire.

When it comes to law and order, East Texas plays by its own rules – a fact that Darren Mathews, a black Texas Ranger, knows all too well. Deeply ambivalent about growing up black in the lone star state, he was the first in his family to get as far away from Texas as he could. Until duty called him home. But when his allegiance to his roots puts his job in jeopardy, he travels up Highway 59 to the small town of Lark, where two murders-a black lawyer from Chicago and a local white woman-have stirred up a hornet’s nest of resentment. Darren must solve the crimes – and save himself in the process – before Lark’s long-simmering racial fault lines erupt. A rural noir suffused with the unique music, color, and nuance of East Texas, BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD, is an exhilarating, timely novel about the collision of race and justice in America.

Threesome by:Brain W. Smith & Keith Thomas Walker
Bestselling Authors, Brian W. Smith and Keith Thomas Walker have teamed up to write a novel that has so much intrigue and plot twists that readers won’t be able to put the book down.

Corey Grand is a self-made millionaire. He owns a successful security company, has a beautiful wife (Rene), an adorable son (CJ), and all of the trappings of success. But there is one thing that Corey Grand doesn’t possess – the ability to be faithful to his wife.

For years, Rene has tolerated Corey’s cheating ways, but after catching him having another affair she threatens to divorce him, claim half of his financial empire, and take their child back to her hometown in California. Corey begs Rene to give him another chance and offers to give her anything she wants if she stays. After much deliberation, Rene decides to take him up on his offer. She agrees to stay with Corey, but only if he grants her one wish – she wants to have a threesome…and that’s when the REAL drama begins.

Will Corey grant Rene the wish that will keep his family together and his empire in tact? If he does, will it be enough to make Rene happy…or will it be the precursor to a level of drama that will prove to be too much even for him?

Lightning Men: A Novel (The Darktown Series Book 2) by: Thomas Mullen
From the acclaimed author of The Last Town on Earth comes the gripping follow-up to Darktown, a “combustible procedural that will knock the wind out of you” (The New York Times).

Officer Denny Rakestraw and “Negro Officers” Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith have their hands full in an overcrowded and rapidly changing Atlanta. It’s 1950 and racial tensions are simmering as black families, including Smith’s sister, begin moving into formerly all-white neighborhoods. When Rake’s brother-in-law launches a scheme to rally the Ku Klux Klan to “save” their neighborhood, his efforts spiral out of control, forcing Rake to choose between loyalty to family or the law.

Across town, Boggs and Smith try to shut down the supply of white lightning and drugs into their territory, finding themselves up against more powerful foes than they’d expected. Battling corrupt cops and ex-cons, Nazi brown shirts and rogue Klansmen, the officers are drawn closer to the fires that threaten to consume the city once again.
