A Review of Finding Gideon by Eric Jerome Dickey

This is the fifth installment in the Gideon series by Eric Jerome Dickey and I’m still in awe of the assassin with a heart. In this novel, EJD picks up the story right after the battle between the Scamz Organization and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in Buenos Aires. This was also where Gideon went head-to-head in battle with Medianoche, a man whom his lying mother told him was his father.

With betrayal and distrust at the heels of all the parties involved, Gideon must recover while on the run with his crew and while Medianoche is gathering up more Horsemen. Readers were introduced to some cold bloodied killers like the Preacher and the Shark. The scenes were action packed and I love the location descriptions and the history provided. The rollercoaster ride from start to finish takes readers all over the globe with Gideon eventually besting his enemies and circling back with lovers (Mrs. Jones, Lola Mack, etc.) from EJD’s earlier novels (Sleeping with Strangers and Waking with En…

Guest Author at the Heritage Book Club - Lexington, KY

This was my second trip to Lexington, Kentucky to hang out with the wonderful ladies of the Heritage Book Club. This time around I decided to arrive a few days before the book club meeting on Saturday, August 24, 2019 to relax and enjoy some sightseeing around town.
Emma Lou Black, the founder of the Heritage Book Club was very gracious in hosting me in her beautiful home. Pat Wheat, her friend was wonderful in picking me up from the airport, taking me around town sightseeing and giving me history lessons about the Lyric Theatre (performance space), shopping and hanging out at Lexington Green to see Encore perform (too bad the concert was rained out after two songs).
I even had a great time hanging out Friday night at the American Legion Post where Emma Lou is a bartender. She introduced me to everyone and her friends and family (Ernest, Joe, Willis, John, etc.) made me feel quite at home. The music was on point and I had a ball.
Come Saturday, I was excited and ready to see some famil…

Local Author's Day at Barnes & Noble (Columbia Mall)

On Saturday, August 17, 2019, I participated in the Local Author's Day at Barnes & Noble at Columbia Mall in Columbia, MD. After setting up my display, I enjoyed a slice of spinach quiche and some ice tea from the café. It was just what I needed to prepare for my day (11 am - 4 pm) hanging out with avid readers and networking with some wonderful authors who write fiction and non-fiction books. 
The time went by quickly with folks from the Black Writers' Guild, mentoring program where I am a mentor liaison, fellow author friends and family. I laughed, took photos, sold and signed some books and had a lovely afternoon. 
When it was all over, I grabbed dinner with some of my friends at Urban Plates. It always feels good to enjoy a good meal and great conversations.
Here are some photos from the event and dining with my friends:








Book Reading & Signing - Nancy by SNAC Bistro

On Saturday, August 10, 2019 I had a great time at my book reading and signing at Nancy by SNAC Bistro in Baltimore, MD.  Thanks to my publicist, Cherrie Woods for coordinating this event with Kevin Brown, the owner of Nancy by SNAC.

Anyway, after enjoying waffles, sausage and scrambled eggs and chatting with book lovers, I read from both of my romantic suspense novels, Gotta Let It Go and Gotta Get It Back. My audience enjoyed hearing about my characters and I enjoyed introducing them to their drama.

Here are some photos from the event:
