I wanted to take this time to thank each and every one of you for your wonderful feedback of chapter 1 of my upcoming release, "Crossroads". It has been almost 2 years since you've read about my character, Amaryllis Price, and I've received hundreds of e-mails inquiring what she was up to next. Well the wait is almost over and in just 4 months, "Crossroads" will grace the book shelves of your local Borders, Barnes & Noble, & Walden Bookstores as well as Wal-Mart stores and your local libraries. "Crossroads" will also be available as an e-book on Kindle. Right now Amazon.com is offering "Crossroads" for just $10 if you pre-order your paperback copy. And for all of you hard cover book lovers, let's cross our fingers and pray that Black Expressions Book Club will accept "Crossroads" into their literary family.
It really puts joy in my heart when readers are satisfied with my work and take the time to reach out to me with words of encouragement. I appreciate those of you who stopped by my website at www.nikitalynnettenichols.com to sign my guestbook.
For those of you who may not have received my newsletter earlier this month, I will be hosting my very 1st. book give-away contest in December. 5 lucky winners will be chosen to receive complimentary autographed copies of "Crossroads". Brush up on your reading because readers will be asked to answer 10 questions correctly relating to my past novels, "A Man's Worth", "Amaryllis", & "A Woman's Worth". Rules and regulations of the contest will be given at a later date.
I am happy to announce the release of my self-published novel, "Damsels In Distress", as an e-book in the fall of 2011. Best friends Portia, a receptionist at a used car dealership who finds fulfillment in married men beds & Ginger, a high-school teacher who suffers daily at the hands of her unemployed, drug addicted, live-in boyfriend & Celeste, the so-called happily married bank teller, all share a secret from high-school that they swore to never mention. But when a situation arises and exposes what they've been hiding for over 20 years, Portia, Ginger, & Celeste turn on each other. The 3 'frenemies' are now on their own and must face their own individual demons.
Readers and fans are welcomed to join in on the production of "Damsels In Distress". I am seeking models for the on-line book cover. Readers are welcomed to submit photos of individual women or a group of 3 women. Please keep in mind the title of the book when submitting your photos. Any smiling is prohibited. Creativity is key. Photos can be submitted in jpeg only to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31st, 2010. Any photos received without the models name & contact information will be rejected. Photos received after the due date will also be rejected.
I wish all of you a wonderful day and I look forward to reviewing your photos.
Blessings to you all,
Nikita Lynnette Nichols
