In this chaos year of 2020, my 32nd published book is finally out. This baby, Femme Like Her, took entirely too long to come into being, but I’m glad she’s here.
This book was never intended to be anything longer than a short story, but a few readers asked to know more about the main characters from The Magical Femme, Scottie and Nailah. You can basically blame them for this novel seeing the light of day. It came together very, very slowly though. Now, three years after the decision to write this sequel of sorts—ta da!
The point of view of the book is one that I rarely work with—first person, present—but I wanted to challenge myself to use the POV of some engrossing and incredibly well-done books I’d read over the last few years. I’m not going to lie, it was TOUGH going for me. But I hope people will think it’s worth it. As a not really aside, the book so far has 4.5 stars on Amazon. 🤩
This is the blurb:
Nailah Grant only dates studs, races her Camaro for therapy, and believes in leaving her exes in the past where they belong.
But, with a layoff looming and her retired parents about to take a life-changing step Nailah isn’t ready for, her world becomes far from stable. Enter Scottie, the only femme she’s ever allowed close enough to touch her heart. They say trouble comes in threes, and this femme is one with a capital T.
Scottie is an ex though, and somebody Nailah never should have been with in the first place. Yet, when the foundations of her life collapse, Scottie is the one Nailah finds herself clinging to. Just as things settle into a semblance of something Nailah could only dream about, a shattering secret from Scottie’s past threatens to destroy everything the two women have built together.
Will Nailah stay the course with Scottie, or allow her fears to ruin her chance at a real and passionate love?
