Remy Ma, Doin’ Her Thing

I love Remy Ma and always loved her style. However, I find what I love about her most of late is her resilience. People can push and shove you, set the world before you, or the opposite – turn their back and say, “Catch up,” and not give you any rope, but a true survivor will still get it. They won’t stop. They won’t quit.  Only the strong survive but only the strong-willed persevere, and Remy has absolutely done just that. She did the damn thing and in style at that, I might add.


Remy and her husband Papoose have strategized well and used what they know about music, the industry, etc. to scroll right up to the top of our list of people to watch, support and follow. They showed us that YES! You can make a come back.


I would love to say many have tried and gave 200% on a come back, however, I think often times we believe the forces are against us before we even start; so, we either go at it sideways or not at all. However, when you look at Remy you see not only her going back at it, but some real hip hop qualities: Sisterhood.  Look at how she pulled Li’l Kim to do this single, and we have been waiting how long for a Li’l Kim single? Sisterhood! That’s straight sisterhood. All it took was for a sister to come from the heart and say, “Let’s get this,” and look at what we have; it’s golden, priceless – it’s Hip Hop. And might I add they look freakin MARVELOUUUS doing it! AMAZING!!! I Love Hip Hop!!! There are valuable lessons, culture and tradition in hip hop when you look beyond rapping. I’m Just Sayin’


We wonder, sometimes, why some things happen for some people. I think it’s more important to realize, which people it happens to; how’s your heart these days? If you clean your heart, not only will good things happen for you but they will happen to you. Remy received spotlight and she shared. Bravo Sis.

This is just my two cents and I support my sister Remy and guess what, we’ve not even met yet. See how Sisterhood works. I’m shouting out Remy for being a true hio hop Sister.

If I was a hero, this would be my costume, and that would be my Lab. My staff would be my pen, and I would write for you.

Book Covers

This is one of the things I DO NOT like about publishing. There are those times when it is cost effective to be all things. However, sometimes you just can’t be all things. I’m stuck with the task of trying to come up with a book cover. Bright, shiny and commercial styled covers don’t quite convey…and covers that are a little dark may scare the average reader off. What types of covers do you consider when the end of the book is bitter-sweet? What a task. The main character gets what she asks for but realizes it definitely is not what she wanted. Advice?

“A Blessing and a Curse”

“Life Knows No Bound: A Blessing and a Curse”

…And so it was…

Finally, the cover of the 2nd novel in the “Life Knows No Bounds” series is complete. Debuting in February 2012, we can all look forward to this next novel to spell out more goodies from life’s infamous bag of tricks. If you thought it wasn’t easy being cheesy, wait ’til you get a load of Malika, who has the gift of foresight, which some call a blessing and she calls a curse.

Malika doesn’t know which way to turn as her life turns and tumbles upside down. After a lifetime of sacrifices for her family, Malika’s husband decides to kick her to the curb, along with the children and bills, leaving Malika distraught over her new position in life as a single mother.

Trying to find some refuge, Malika decides to take a vacation to the islands where she meets friends, learns about her gift and gains a new perspective on life, but, to what expense.

Stay tuned as we bring you the 2nd  novel in the “Life Knows No Bounds” series.
