Belinda prides herself on the work that she has produced and claims to always have wanted to write and produce work that is not only entertaining to the readers, but that the readers will also walk away with some sense of a lesson that was learned from her work and that of other authors published under her company.
I asked Belinda a few questions, here is what she has shared:
When did you first consider yourself a writer? I considered myself a writer once I decided to start penning my first novel.
What inspired you to write your first book? I have always loved to read but coming up I only read books by caucasian authors, I never knew that African American authors existed. I ran across Terry McMillan’s first book, “Mama” and it was so hood and about a life that I could have easily be my own. They talked out language, and acted like we acted, they were not rich, they cursed and fought, it was something I could relate to and that is what made me say, “I can do this!”
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? I learned that in order to make money you have to spend money. I edited my first book myself and that’s all I’m going to say about that. LOL.
Do you have any advice for other writers? My advice to other writers would be not to come in thinking you are going to make loads of money off of the top unless you are already a well-known person or have people in high places. Writing has to be a passion for you, you can’t be in it of the money, initially.
Excerpt - Waiting On My Cue
Cue seems to have it all; good looks, money, power and two of the Carolina’s finest in love with him. Mercedes his petite, cute and career minded girlfriend of years, that would love nothing more than to become his wife and bare little Cue’s. And Keisha who is his hot, down, got your back side chick, that would move heaven and earth to become his number one. Cue finds that he is in love with two women for two different reasons. Mercedes has all of the qualities that Cue wants in a wife; she’s pretty, educated and independent. Keisha has everything that Mercedes lacks that excites Cue; she’s spontaneous, sexy and she’s a ride or die chick. Although Keisha and Cue had an understanding, they had not planned on falling in love with one another. Now Cue finds himself with two beautiful women in love with him and both are ready to settle down and for him to make some decisions. What does Cue do? Does he follow his heart and go with the one that has been loyal and wants just as much from life as he does? Or does he break all rules and dare choose the one that may be least compatible, but excites him to no ends and makes him happy? Cue takes both of these ladies on a riveting rollercoaster ride that seems to have no apparent end.
Excerpt - No Longer Waiting
You never know where you will find love, but one thing is certain and two things are true... Keisha believed in it, she never gave up on it, and she loved deeply. From being Cue's side girl to finally becoming her own; she has dealt with the pain of heart break and betrayal. After Cue decides to marry his long time girlfriend without warning to his side chick Keisha that he was doing so, Keisha once again finds herself broken and confused. She breathed for Cue, how could she survive without him? Will Keisha succumb to her love for him when he returns from his honeymoon saying how much he missed her and needed to hold her. Or will she find enough love for herself and the strength to move on? The tells and twist of "No Longer Waiting" will leave you speechless.
