So I've gotten some good feedback and some thinking. For those who didn't read Rhythms, they seem to be a bit lost. And THAT I can deal with. The whole culture shock, portraying black folks as immoral thing? Not so much. I guess it's because I get culture shock on the first page of most any book I read (the Bible included). I sort of like it like that. This was my first true sequel (the others have been more of spin offs) and I bypassed the hundreds of italic pages of back story from book 1. Lesson learned (and to stay away from my own reviews of course!)
Anyway, for those who still think I'm crazy or a heathen (or both) check out SistahFaith: True Stories of Pain, Hope and Healing for some of the nonfiction behind my fiction. Thanks to all of you for reading my books and giving your more feedback. It means so much!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to read and review Songs of Deliverance and to the contributors of SistahFaith, congrats ladies! Thanks for believing.
