Zoe & Yusuf T. Woods
Blood Of My Brother

September 30, 2007


In the rough streets of Philly, money is like air. You can’t live without it but you can die trying to get it. Zoe & Yusuf T. Woods present Blood of My Brother which is a high energy suspense novel, full of drama that puts you right in the middle of the street life. Many have lost themselves by not using the rules that are laid out in this story. Zoe & Yusuf T. Woods introduce you to Roc and his right hand man Boggy. Roc is a boss that makes noise with his hands and not with his mouth as a true Don does.


Together, Roc and Boggy have come a long way. From having their ribs touch due to not having enough to eat, to sitting side by side on a G4 overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. However, it’s hard to stay at the top when so many people want your spot. Roc has seen the jealousy, disrespect, and betrayal that come along with being the top dog but the devastating move that comes his way is one that takes things to a new level.

What I'm Listening to...Jill Scott: The Real Thing Words and Sounds Volume 3
                               
All I have to say is mmm....mmm...mmm. If you haven't purchased this CD yet, I highly recommend it and you can check out her over one hundred reviews on Amazon who feel the same way I do. My friends know that I am a little impatient. I ordered this CD on Amazon about a month before it was released after hearing the single, Hate On Me, and because I adore Jill Scott. Well, Tuesday came and a friend had purchased it and told me that she couldn't get past Jill's CD to listen to Common's new one or Keisha Cole's. Amazon sent me an email saying it wouldn't arrive until Friday due to some delay, but I couldn't wait. I purchased the CD on that Wednesday the day after the release and when I received the one from Amazon I mailed it to a close friend who just thinks Jill is okay. This CD should change his mind!
Another movie I can't wait to see...This Christmas
                                                               
 Click on the photo to view the trailer.  
THIS CHRISTMAS Sharon Leal as Kelli Whitfield and Regina King as Lisa Whitfield star in a story about the Whitfields family that meets up for Christmas. As the siblings come home for the first time in years with plenty of baggage and as the Christmas tree is trimmed and lights are hung, secrets are revealed and the Whitfields joins together to discover the true meaning of family.
A special thank you to those of you who forwarded my newsletter to your email contacts and copied me on the email. I was so pleased. Be sure to continue to forward my newsletter to your friends, book club members, and other avid readers so they can stay connected with me and my fellow authors.
