Coming Soon
2013


A Conversation With Hannah Spivey

         If you have never heard about her or got a chance to pull up a seat and have a conversation with her than now is the chance for you to do so. Get acquainted with Hannah Spivey and learn about the person behind the pen. Behind every novel is an author waiting to come out and now is the chance for readers to meet Hannah, pen and paper pushed aside.
 
My Urban Books: Growing up did you always want to be a writer?
 
Hannah Spivey: No, I didn’t always want to be a writer. I dreamed of becoming a teacher, nurse, driver, or lawyer, lol.
 
My Urban Books: Your novel Ebony the Beloved started with a teenage girl being bullied while in high school, so tell us Hannah how was your high school experience?
 
Hannah Spivey: In high school, I was an introvert. I stayed to myself and I was quite timid, but I wasn’t bullied though.
 
My Urban Books:What one word would you use to best describe Ebony from Ebony the Beloved? And why did you select that word?
 
Hannah Spivey: Triumphant. Ebony was more determined than she gave herself credit for.
 
My Urban Books: When writing what must you have? ex: snacks, music.
 
Hannah Spivey: Lol, hmmm…I like to listen to music and eat chocolate sometimes.
 
My Urban Books: When writing what did you start off doing that you now no longer do?
 
Hannah Spivey: Good question! I started my first book by writing it in a composition notebook. Nowadays I just regurgitate my thoughts onto the computer.
 
My Urban Books: What about your eBook’s would you say should be altered?
 
Hannah Spivey: I’d say my three e-books need to be changed because they need official covers, lol.
 
My Urban Books: What do you believe is the strongest aspect in African-American literature?
 
Hannah Spivey: Captivating  gritty, scandalous, and tantalizing story lines.
 
My Urban Books: What advice would you give aspiring authors?
 
Hannah Spivey: I’d tell them to keep chasing their literary dreams until they’re breathless. I’d also tell them to do their research on book marketing, publishing and get well acquainted with prospect business partners via social networks.

Rebel's Domain Review by Fabiola Joseph

      One of the best things an author can contribute to the literary would is upping the ante and challenging themselves once it comes to story lines and strengthening their writing. In order to reach the goal which is success your elevator must continue to rise and never stop even when it reaches the sky, because we all know past the sky comes the planets and that big burning ball of fire known as the sun. Fabiola Joseph is that author siting on a cloud and aiming for Venus.
 
       With her new release Rebel's Domain Fabiola has introduced us to a new genre. I cannot tell you the name of this genre that she has created but I can tell you that it is in a league all of its own which has caused her to stand alone and stick out. This story's ink drips of a teenager in search of herself and struggling between what she knows and what can be. Scarlett is a rebel stepping into a game that many lose and others get lost in. The part a parent plays in a child's life determines their mental and physical well-being and whether they know it or not will forever live through their offspring even after death.
 
      Rebel's Domain will rip your heart out of your body and slowly approach you with it offering it back to you only to miss place it back in your chest and leave you filled with a soul full of emotions. If you're looking to have a one track mind and emotion based read then Rebel's Domain is not for you. This novel will cause your breath to catch in your throat, your tears to cloud your vision and your anger to rear its ugly head. Rebel's Domain is a 5 star read and a 5 star original. When the rebel's come to play no one or nothing will ever be ok.
