I had the most marvelous time at my book signing for the Page Turners Book Club. It was held at the Woodlawn Library and boy when I say they pulled out all the stops, I mean they pulled out all the stops for me as an author. Delicious food, great crowd, insightful conversation about the book, and even a replica of the broken glass on the cover of Water In A Broken Glass, created by Rosa Stone. That was simply amazing that she did that. Also, I want to give a shout out to some of my fellow authors who came out to support me and the Page Turners: Rosa Griffin, Wilma Brockington-Parker, and Leroy McKenzie. Every author should be spoiled in the way the Page Turners spoiled me. They are truly an awesome book club. Thank you so much.
The coolest thing in an author’s life happened to me. Page Turners Bookclub selected Water in a Broken Glass for their book of the month. The discussion was originally supposed to take place in a restaurant, but I received a phone call from Page Turners this morning. People have been calling the library wanting to attend, so the library asked them to have the discussion at the branch instead. Crazy, right? I want to thank Page Turners Bookclub, Mr. Farmer of the Woodlawn Library, and the people who love Water in a Broken Glass for making my day.

I had an absolute ball at the Lite Readers Book Club Extravaganza! The members of Lite know how to treat authors. We all felt like royalty when we walked into the Senior Center and found our tables decorated with beautiful table clothes, flowers, and candy. Not only did they feed us breakfast, but they provided lunch for us. The event was well attended and well publicized. I got to hang out with some authors I’ve been friend with for years and some I just met. It was great being in the room with so many talented people.
Thank you Liberty Lite Readers for showing us love with this wonderful event. Check out some of the pictures.

Jamelle and I had a wonderful time with host Nate Couser and Big Mama Ama on the Artist Exchange Radio Show. We talked about everything having to do with my novel, Water in a Broken Glass and the film Water, based on book. Nate and Ama asked some very intriguing questions. They did their homework and had a genuine interest in the novel and the film. I’m usually very nervous during an interview, but they had me completely at ease. Please take some time to watch us and continue to support The Artist Exchange Radio Show.

I had an absolute ball with the Liberty Lite Bookclub. Everyone was so welcoming and we had a great discussion. I love it when readers can tell me things about my work that I didn’t even see. I want to thank Liberty Lite Bookclub for featuring Water in a Broken Glass and for loving it as much as I do.
Here is the link to the interview Jamelle and I did on On Time with Marcus Washington. I did okay. Jamelle did a better job of talking about the film. She’s a natural at this.

On Wednesday, January 25th, Jamelle and I had the wonderful privilege of being guess on Channel 13’s On Time show with host Marcus Washington. It was a great interview. Jamelle did a better job of talking about the film than I did. I was so nervous. But I had fun. The show will air Sunday, February 5th at 6:30 AM on Channel 13 in Baltimore. I hope you will be able to tune in.
Water the Film’s web site has been updated. Check it out.
Hey Ya’ll. Check out the promo video for Water the Film. It’s awesome. Jamelle Williams-Thomas does a great job of describing the story. Click on the link below. 🙂
Y’all are gonna love this cast. They are so talented.
Hey Y’all! I’m talking about Water In A Broken Glass. Check it out.
Guess what, y’all!
Filming for Water started about three weeks ago. And let me tell you, it has been an amazing experience. When I wrote Water In A Broken Glass over sixteen years ago, I never thought this would be happening. I dreamed about it, wished for it. But I don’t think I ever believed it would really happen. Or maybe I did and that’s why God let it be.
Where should I start. Okay, first, in case you don’t know, Water the film is directed by Jamelle Williams-Thomas. She is a DC based filmmaker and owner of Lodge Street films. Jamelle contacted me back in 2009 and asked for the rights to turn Water In A Broken Glass into a film. So, it’s been a long process, some ups and down, but here we are some six years later and Lodge Street Films along with IKam Productions are in Baltimore shooting this film.
Baltimore. My city. All my novels take place in Baltimore, because I love showing the side of Baltimore people rarely focus on. And don’t think the characters in my stories don’t have any problems. They have plenty. They just have something other than drugs and killing on their minds. Baltimore is way richer than that. So it’s cool going to different areas of Baltimore filming. So far Jamelle and her film crew have filmed on the campus of Morgan State University, at The Book Escape on Light Street, Whitelock Street, Nubohemia Café and Lounge on Biddle Street, in the Arts District on Guilford Avenue, Druid Park Lake Drive. They are truly doing Baltimore justice.
I will try to write something every day about the making of Water. Next I’ll talk about the cast and crew. Stay tuned. Love you for all the support y’all have given me over the years.

Love y’all for all the love and support.

It looks like Water The Film is actually going to happen. Lodge Street Films has created a spec short to give you a preview of what the movie is about. Check it out.
I’m almost done with Kizmic’s Journey, but I’ve run into the dreaded procrastination monster.
