Interview with Author Victoria Christopher Murray

The last day of the Sisterhood spotlight and I want to introduce you all to Victoria Christopher Murray. This woman is so very talented. But aside from that she has a generous spirit. We had been Facebook buddies for some time but never met. So when I did get a chance to meet her, it was the biggest honor. She was happy I had traveled from Alabama to Memphis to see her at the booksigning. She said she never knew I was a writer and why hadn't I ever told her. I said, "I don't know, I just don't like telling everyone because some people will automatically think you are about to pitch them a story or try and sell them something." She said, "Well, I always want to encourage you. If I can help you, you let me know. But I always want to be an encouragement. So you tell me what's going on next time." So feeling like the kid sister, all I could think to say was, "Yes, Ma'am."

Feeling the love and encouragement, here is one of the most beautiful people I've ever met, bestselling author Ms. Victoria Christopher Murray. She is the author of 14 novels. Her first novel, Temptation, was originally self published. Victoria Christopher Murrary stated,"I wanted to write a book as entertaining as any book on the market, put God in the middle, and have the book still be a page-turner. I wasn't writing to any particular genre - I didn't even know Christian fiction existed. I just wanted to write about people I knew and characters I could relate to."

In 2000, Time Warner published Temptation. Temptation made numerous best sellers list and remained on the Essence bestsellers list for nine consecutive months. In 2001, Temptation was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in Outstanding Literature.

Since Temptation, Victoria has written nine other adult novels, including: JOY, Grown Folks Business, The Ex Files, and the popular Jasmine Cox Larson Bush series.

In 2008, Victoria's first novels in her Christian fiction teen series - The Divine Divas - were published. She stated,"I was concerned with what our young ladies were reading. I decided to do something about that - give them stories full of drama, but with a message." The Divine Divas has already been optioned to become a television series.

Her latest novel, The Deal, the Dance and the Devil, posing the question, what would you do for five million dollars? Adam and Evia Langston have lived in their own little garden of Eden since the two married at the age of seventeen. Working their way up from the humblest of beginnings, the Langstons have thrived beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Now they live in the finest home, drive the best cars, and indulge in all the trimmings that signify their massive success.

But then the recession hits and rips apart the family’s financial stability. Unable to support their three children and other relatives, Adam and Evia find themselves drowning in financial trouble and teetering on the brink of complete disaster. With nowhere to turn, the Langstons have no idea what to do. Until Evia's boss, comes to the couple with a five million-dollar deal they may find hard to refuse.


Where did the idea for The Deal, The Dance and the Devil come from?

It came from several different places. I was watching Indecent Proposal one night and then thought, it would be a totally different story if the deal was turned around.  So, I asked a Facebook question - would you give your husband up for a weekend for five million dollars. The responses were so great; I laughed for hours.  But then, I started feeling like I was mocking God, so I put that question aside. I never thought it would be a book, but when it came time for my contract, this idea came up.  And the book was born.

In the novel, the question is posed to the main character as to whether she would let her husband spend the night with another woman for 5 million dollars? Would you?

Before I wrote the book, I would've said yes. The only thing that would have kept me from doing it would be my relationship with God.  But besides that, I would've done it in a minute. I figured five million dollars could buy a lot of therapy afterwards if I needed it. :-)

What are you currently working on?

I'm working on my 2012 book about three female evangelists who are not practicing what they're preaching. I don't have a title - the titles are the most difficult part of writing for me!

Can you explain the journey from self-publishd author to being a published author? What was that like? Was it harder being a self-published author or easier because you had more control or vice versa?

Okay, you know this is not a question, this could be a doctoral dissertation.  LOL!  There is no way to describe that journey in a few sentences.  But what I will say is that self publishing helped me to be a better mainstream author. All the things I learned, I still put to work with my novels. To become a mainstream author, I had to find an agent and then it took her two years to sell my novel to a publisher.  There are challenges with being self published and with being a mainstream publisher. And there are benefits. I found being a mainstream author much easier for me because I could focus on the writing and the marketing.  I didn't have to worry about the direct sales to stores, or collecting money or anything else.  I was willing to give up the control for that.  But it is different for every author.

What is your motivation for writing?

I have this relationship with food and shelter and so I write. No really, writing is my job. So just like anyone else who has to go to work to survive, I write. I just happen to have a job that I love.

What would you say to aspiring writers trying to get published...what 3 steps must they make?

Make sure they understand the editorial process - what editors are looking for, how to submit work. Make sure the work is edited - not copy edited...the author must work with a line editor who will help with the plot, character development, etc. And finally, the author has to be persistent and believe in their dream.

If you don't mind, I'm going to do a plug here. On the AChapterAMonth website, we have a Editor-in-Residence who is doing on-line live writing workshops and she's also going to be leading an on-line Writer's Group. These are the kinds of things that any author at any level could benefit from. Authors have to be willing to invest (time and money) into their career if they're serious.

What are your thoughts about the current ebook trends?

I like it! Our world is changing and everything else is digital.  I think we need to get with the program and find a way to work with it. I don't think books will ever go out of style, which is a good thing, but we have to embrace change.

Interview with Bestselling Author Rosalyn McMillan

It's day two of the sisterhood spotlight. We have bestselling author Rosalyn McMillan. Most memorable moment of her at the Sisterhood Showcase was her passionate response about having a career and being a mother at the same time. How she is fortunate she was able to work, have a career and still be a good mom. She didn't hesitate when I asked to take a picture with her. And she had a relaxed, friendly and easy demeanor.

Rosalyn McMillan is the author of six novels, Knowing, One Better, Blue Collar Blues, The Flip Side of Sin, This Side of Eternity and Midnight Pawn. Her latest book, We Ain’t the Brontës, is a fast read about sibling rivalry. Both protagonist and antagonist are published authors. One is successful and the other one isn’t.  Jealousy and envy create eons of tension between the two sisters. It has action, drama, passion, humor and cutting dialogue. The Brontës will have the reader wondering what is fact and what is fiction.

In We Ain't the Brontes, Charity Evans and Lynzee Lavender haven’t always had the best relationship—for the most part thanks to them being writers. But while Lynzee is the wealthy, successful New York Times bestselling author of science fiction books, Charity is just squeaking by. Why is success passing her by? And why is her publisher all of a sudden reluctant to renew her contract? Now Charity suspects the worst: That her own sister has had her blacklisted! With her savings dwindling, Charity struggles to pay her bills, and the pressure is putting an incredible strain on her marriage. The rivalry goes into overdrive when Lynzee reveals that the father of the child she gave up years ago is…Charity’s husband! Charity’s life goes into a tailspin as she struggles to decide if she should tell her husband about the child he never knew he had, or if that would be just the excuse he needs to abandon her for good. She knows she has to do something, but will the path she ultimately decides to take end up destroying them all.


How did you began your writing career?

I began my writing career in 1992.  I wanted to tell my story about my medical disorder, alopecia.  There hadn't been any fiction books written about it. 

You have been on hiatus from the book world for ten years, what took you so long to come back?

I was blacklisted in the publishing industry and couldn't get a contract. I didn't stop writing, though. I have eight completed novels that I hope to publish one day.

What do you think about the current ebook trends? Have you embraced it and are you find it more difficult sell books among the masses of ebooks?

I like the idea. I published an ebook this year entitled "Midnight Pawn."  It's a psychological thriller about a female serial killer.  I think marketing and selling ebooks isn't as easy as it sounds.

I'm sure you get asked this often, but for my readers interest, can you tell us if your current novel, "We Ain't The Brontes" is based on any personal experiences between you and your sister Terry McMillan?

No, it's not. I think it would be refreshing to write a book about two Black female authors who struggle in their careers, and are oftentimes not very friendly towards each other.

Do you think you and Terry will ever collaborate on any work?

Not a work of fiction.  Our styles are too different. However, Terry and our two other sisters hope to publish a cookbook in the near future. I already have my recipes ready.

How is it different being a seasoned writer as opposed to being a newly published author?

Being seasoned, you know the tricks of the trade and know how important it is to know about the business of publishing and the politics that go along with it. Newly published authors have very high expectations.  They have got a lot to learn.

I asked this question during the panel/forum discussion at the Sisterhood Showcase, can you tell us your thoughts about the segregation of African American books in brick and mortar stores?

I like the idea.  You can find us easily and I'm not ashamed to be Black.  I'm very proud of my heritage.  My only hope is that I'll write quality fiction so that I feel worthy of being represented in the brick and mortar stores.

What are you currently working on? And where do you draw your inspiration from?

I'm currently working on the sequel to "Midnight Pawn." I get my inspiration from the newspaper, my friends, and family members. I'm never short on ideas. 

What would you like readers to know about you that they probably don't know?

That I've been designing and sewing clothes since I was sixteen years old. I can make men's suits and sew draperiers. I'm making draperies for my family room and dining room this fall.

Rosalyn is the mother of four children and six grandchildren. She lives with her husband of over twenty-six years, J.D., in Memphis, Tennessee. She loves speaking to book clubs and she always puts the Lord first in her life.
You can purchase her books at Amazon or Barnes and Noble or any retail bookstore in your area.

Interview with Author Jae Henderson

Welcome to the Sisterhood Series this week. I will be interviewing three lovely authors this week, Jae Henderson, Rosalyn McMillan, and Victoria Christopher Murray.

 First up is the talented Jae Henderson. I met her at the Sisterhood Showcase, she has a friendly sweet spirit. The kind of spirit that makes you feel welcomed, as if you aren't a stranger. So I knew I had to have her as one of my interviews this week. I hope you enjoy it and show her some love for her debut novel, Someday. 

After embracing careers as a radio talk show host, freelance writer, marketing and media professional, and voice over artist, Jae Henderson is making her debut as a Christian/Inspirational romance author.

Someday is the first release in the I'm A Good Woman literature series. Jae's books serve as an extension of her women's motivational  website, I am a Good Woman.

She is the former host and producer of On Point, a popular talk show geared toward youth and young adults. Other accomplishments have included serving as a contributing writer for the award-winning, syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show and a successful career as a voice over artist. Her signature voice has been heard in hundreds of commercials and even a couple of cartoons. One of this 30-something’'s proudest moments was founding College Bound of Memphis, a non-profit dedicated to helping youth pursue a college education. Jae currently resides in her hometown of Memphis, TN where she can be found heading her copy writing and public/media relations company, Put It In Writing. 

In Someday, Tina “"Tee”" Long dreamed of having it all. As one of Memphis’' most sought after event planners, she appears to have achieved it. Even though creating breathtaking events and rubbing elbows with the social elite seems exciting, there’'s one thing missing from her fairy tale life—---her prince charming. After a string of failed, faith-challenging relationships, this woman of God refuses to give up on meeting the man of her dreams. Tee knows in her heart that God will answer her prayers --SOMEDAY. Until then, she tries to remain prayerful and content by occupying her time working hard, withstanding her sister’'s drama-filled marriage, counseling wayward youth and sharing the ups and downs of life with her hilarious girlfriends. When Tee is introduced to an incredibly handsome, retired NFL player named Michael Stokes, it seems that someday has finally arrived. There's one problem. He’'s been marked for death.


You are known for your voice over talent for television and radio, how did you go from that to writing your first novel, “Someday”? And what inspired you?

Doing voice over work has been an amazing opportunity but there’s no reason to limit myself to one art form. I also do a women’s motivational blog called where I feature inspirational messages, blogs and wonderful women doing amazing things in hopes of inspiring other women to make their dreams come true and achieve greatness. My books are an extension of that. “Someday” is the first book in the I’m A Good Woman literary series. I want to produce numerous books all geared toward inspiring and motivating women to do their best in whatever they endeavor to do.  Right now I’m featuring Lemmonstine Poindexter, the founder of the National Barren Women’s Support Group. I also feature men I think women want to know more about and my current interview is with R&B sensation Tank.

 “Someday” is an inspirational romance, why did you combine the two genres?

These days inspiration and Christian are often used interchangeably. God has been good to me and one of the ways I say thank you is by spreading the message of his love for us. We are all blessed. I enjoy romance novels but I never wanted to write anything that I couldn’t present in the church. Christian woman want to read a good love story, too and romance novels don’t have to be graphic to get the point across. You can leave something to the imagination. Your readers will get your point. So, I basically write Christian love stories.

What are some of the obstacles you've encountered as a first time author?

I wouldn’t say that I had any obstacles. Although, publishing a book can be a tedious process, with the writing, reading, editing and revisions. I have a knowledgeable publisher, Latrivia A. Nelson, who walked me through every step. “Someday” is my first book and I wanted it to be perfect. It didn’t turn out perfect, but it did turn out to be a quality story that I could be proud of. I have received some amazing feedback from my readers, and I am grateful to everyone who has taken the time to read it.

What are you currently reading?

I actually started reading books by some of the authors I met at the 2011 Sisterhood Showcase. So far I’ve read “Wench” by Dolan Perkins-Valdez, “We Ain’t the Brontes” by Rosalyn McMillan and “Getting to Happy” by Terry McMillan. I recommend them all to anyone who loves African American fiction.

What advice do you have for aspiring writers?

Follow your dreams and surround yourself with good people. Life is too short not to make your dreams come true and when other people or situations seek to discourage you, it’s your friends and family who will remind you that the sky is the limit. As a child of God each of us is born with greatness inside us. However, many fail to tap into it and unleash it for the world to see and enjoy.

Can you give three books all writers should have on their bookshelf?

Well, I can’t say these are just for writers. Two of these are for anyone who wants to be successful. “Never Eat Alone and Other Secrets to Success, One Relationship At A Time” by Keith Ferazzi, “Fight for Your Money” and “The Automatic Millionaire” by David Bach, and “The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing” by Marilyn Ross and Sue Collier.

If you want to succeed as a writer you need to be able to do more than write a good book. This is a business. You not only need to know how to put out a great product that will sell but also learn how to foster great relationships and manage your money.

How has it been traveling and touring with such great talents as Terry McMillan, Victoria Christopher Murray and Reshonda Tate Billingsley? What advice have they given you as a writer?

It was an honor to have my book featured alongside theirs during the 2011 Sisterhood Showcase here in Memphis. I am extremely grateful to Tina Birchett, the founder of Sisterhood Showcase and Grace Magazine, and Garbo Hearne of Pyramid Books, Art and Custom Framing for the opportunity to present “Someday” to thousands of women.

Victoria Christopher Murray and I didn’t get a chance to chat long but she is also an inspirational romance writer and we discussed our love of the genre. She told me to write what’s in my heart and don’t limit myself. You will have critics but you must first enjoy your own work before anyone else can.

Best-selling author Dolan Perkins-Valdez and I shared a table and we discussed self-publishing versus getting signed by a publisher. There are drawbacks and benefits to both. You have to do your research and then decide what’s best for you.  You have to ask yourself how long you are willing to wait to get signed because there is no guarantee that a major publisher will pick you up or it could take years of shopping your book around before someone does. If you don’t get signed are you willing to put the book out yourself and promote it? Self-publishing is a great option for some and not so attractive to others. 

What is next for Jae Henderson?

I am promoting and selling “Someday” whenever I can. I’ve been asked by several book clubs, churches, singles and women’s groups to participate in their events. I really enjoy connecting with people. “Someday” is a trilogy so I have two more novels to go. I am currently working on the sequel “Someday, Too,” which is set to be released in November. I’m also working on a book of inspirational short stories that will only be available in e-book. My plan is to keep the books coming and inspiring women to greatness every step of the way.

Please let everyone know that I have a book signing at Urban Expressions Book Store July 2, 2011 from 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm. It’s inside the Raleigh Springs Mall at
3384 Austin Peay Hwy, Memphis, TN.

I sure will. And thank you for doing this interview for me and my readers.We wish you the very best in all your endeavors.

In a playground in Brooklyn, Artie is led to a dead girl tied up in duct tape on a children’s swing.

Artie flies to London to tell Tolya and finds himself enmeshed on his friend’s behalf in a maelstrom of Russian money and crime. Like Berlin at the end of World War II, somebody tells Artie, Londongrad, as it’s known, has become an offshore island for the new Russian underworld. Over his head, Artie is drawn further in, to Moscow, where, balancing between the old KGB and the new FSB, between the dazzle and grimness of Russia today, he uncovers a painful truth about his past that puts Tolya’s life in the balance.

It’s even more shocking to be attracted to a much younger man this time. She definitely thinks Casey Carter is sexy, but not handling her own age well, Alexa just can’t get passed their twelve year age difference to even consider a fling. Not that it matters anyway, anything resembling a normal dating relationship is totally out of the question because Casey is related to and living with her daughter’s boyfriend.
