In this scandalously provocative soap-drama series, deceit, seduction, and a tempestuous affair intertwines the lives of lascivious lovers who will go above and beyond to keep their sexual trysts a secret, but the curse of temptation will lead to revelations that may result in their own demise.     
Still mourning the death of his lover, Denise, Greg Adams conspires to leave his wife. He believes that Denise has come back to him in the form of a woman named Naomi Brooks, and he can’t forget her.

New Urban Fiction Author Yani Debut Novel, A Thug’s Redemption

Kindle Edition
When Jamal decides to take matters into his own hands by avenging his best friend’s murder, he is forced into the street life, forever in debt to his cousin Samir, one of Philadelphia’s biggest drug lords. After finding love; separating himself from the game, and turning his life around, fate comes into play when a desperate act by his younger brother Shawn, brings back the haunting night from Jamal’s past. Secrets are revealed, and Jamal is forced back into the street life to save his brother as well as himself. In this story about friendship, love, and the dangers of North Philly streets, Jamal will soon learn that mistakes are hard to clean up and they will cost him dearly in the end.


I released her novel, A Thug’s Redemption under my own Anitbeet Productions. Written at the age of 15 while attending University City High-School, my first work of fiction explores inner city youths’ struggle with gun violence claiming the lives of their family and friends, drugs, which plagues their neighborhoods, as well as the on-going battles they each face in their destructive homes. It is an all too familiar tale for anyone who has lived in Philadelphia as well as other inner cities around the country. A Thug’s Redemption takes a look into why so many young Black men are becoming victims of genocide and how gun violence has become the number 1 killer of Black men across the country.

The first installment of this page turning trilogy is a tale of how one young man’s need for revenge causes a ripple effect like a pebble in a pond. Jamal has the unfortunate experience of witnessing his best friend being murdered after a fight between himself and another North Philly teenager ensues. Seeing himself as the blame, he decides to take matters into his own hands by seeking revenge on the culprit. With the help of his cousin Samir, one of Philadelphia’s most notorious and well-connected drug lords, Jamal lays his own life on the line to avenge his best friend and kills the gun-man responsible for the slaying. Jamal finds himself forever in debt to his cousin Samir as an on call street soldier. But the love affair between himself and a fellow classmate, Tamera Harrison, humbles his destructive nature and lures him away from the street life.

When a desperate act by his younger brother Shawn, brings back the haunting night from Jamal’s past, secrets are revealed and he is forced back into the street life to keep his brother from going to prison for a murder he didn’t commit. Reverting back to his street mentality ways, Jamal will do whatever it takes to protect the people around him, even if it means killing again.

In recent studies, from 1980-2008 47.4% of Black men were victims of a homicide. Of the 47.4%, 52.5% of them were killed by another Black man. The number of Black children, young Black teens and Black men who were killed by gun violence in Chicago from 1990-2009 was more than 13 times the number of Black men lynched by White men from 1882-1968! Of the amount of deaths in 2008-2009, 45% were young African American males between the ages of 15-19, killed by gun violence.

Although A Thug’s Redemption is a work of fiction, it gives a perspective into situations that contribute to these staggering statistics; the need for revenge, the need for respect, the need to protect love ones and the need for power and money. Though many non-violence advocates believe that better gun laws would stop some of the violence committed against one another, I believe that it truly starts with us, our respect for human life and making better decisions.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa and am an aspiring author who enjoys entrapping my readers inside of my literary world and having them fall in love with the characters while relating to their stories. I have been featured on Yo! Raps website and showcased as author of the week on Authors & Readers Book Corner as well as the Hottest Urban Fiction website. I’ve has also recited my poetry in the past on the local Hip-Hop and R&B radio station, Power 99FM. To learn more about me or to view my press kit, visit www.anitbeetproductions.net.

Paperback:
New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey returns to the life of Nia Simone Bijou (of Pleasure fame) as she embarks on a quest to enhance her artistic gifts through heightened sensory experience, Hollywood-style.

Four years have passed since the events of Pleasure, and Nia’s success as a writer has grown, bringing her from Atlanta to Los Angeles. But she remains on a quest to quiet her inner storm, to draw on her well of emotions and explore them fully before leaving this season of her life and moving on to what could be the next stage: marriage and motherhood.

Drawn to an exclusive pleasure palace, where patrons try on roles as they actively shun their respective realities, Nia’s ability to balance truth and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred. What has happened to the compartments she has so carefully created for the different aspects of her life? Will her relationship with the mysterious, often unavailable Prada survive the countless temptations? Will her successful literary career be given over to impulse indulgence? Does decadence know any bounds?

When Nia’s past comes back to mingle with her present, and when her staid public persona clashes with her fantasy life of decadence, readers will be stunned by the outcome. Eric Jerome Dickey‘s newest tale of excess — and its sky-high costs — is a thrilling portrait of a glittering world.

 Born addicted to heroin, and taught to shoplift by watching her mother steal to support her habit, Mack Mama was destined for destruction. When her mother died from the AIDS virus, Mack spiraled out of control. She was bitter, and disgruntled, using her mother’ death as an excuse to destroy her life.

As she searches for her sanity, she purges her soul in this shockingly honest memoir.

Mack Mama was well known for being a hustler, and lived a lavish lifestyle, but after various bids in prison she realizes that she wasn’t beating the system.

She describes her life honestly, and with raw detail, taking the reader into the story as witness to the insanity of urban life in the underworld of Brooklyn, New York

The AntiChrist Was Conceived in Queens by A. Jesus Wrighter

He’s the offspring of an ancient, unholy union. She’s a pawn in a high stakes, prophetic game of deception. When he accidentally kills his father an avalanche of unforeseen circumstances turn their worlds upside down and threatens the ultimate salvation of an entire species. On the run for their lives and desperately craving information only his father can provide, he tries to raise him from the dead. But will even a miracle resurrection be enough to satisfy his longing for real relationship with his father and restore order to his universe now spun out of control? And will their baby turn out to be the antichrist?

In a heart stopping romp through the streets of New York City, The AntiChrist Was Conceived in Queens manages to carve out a new genre, the BUFF novel (biblical urban faith fantasy), while following the transformation of Rain Reynolds, a New York City public school legend with real angel’s blood in his veins, and Lisa Vickers, a former D.C. anchorwoman turned pastor with a secret, from immortal basketball icon and crack news investigator to enlightened spiritual emissaries and perhaps their kind’s last real hope to find a place in heaven. And as usual the way to enlightenment goes straight through the dark.
