Kandi’s Top 10 Reads of 2017

2017 was the fastest year to ever happen ever. Or at least, that’s what it feels like to me. I guess as we grow older, we tend to feel that way about every year. It seems like time only ticks faster and faster, and now here we are, right on the cusp of 2018. 2017 was an incredible year for me. I went into it with the mindset that it would be a year of personal and professional growth, as well as a year of discovery — and man was I right. I’ve traveled to more than 15 cities this […]

Kandi’s Top 10 Reads of 2016

Wow. What a year 2016 has been. I’ve joked throughout the year with my friends and family that 2016 can stop ANY DAY NOW with all the crap it’s been dumping on me. And yes, in many ways, 2016 has been one of the hardest years of my life. From financial and family issues to personal health and crappy luck, I’ve had quite the year of riding down a pothole-ridden road on a bike with two flat tires. That being said, 2016 has also blessed my life in many ways. I published the second season of Palm South University, which […]

Introducing My Next Full Length Novel… Plus, A Sale! :)

I’m so excited to introduce my next full length release… Weightless. Weightless Coming June 16th I remember the lights. I remember I wanted to photograph them, the way the red and blue splashed across his cold, emotionless face. But I knew even if my feet could move from the place where they had cemented themselves to the ground and I could run for my camera, I wouldn’t be able to capture that moment. There was no shutter speed, no lens, no lighting technique that could properly encapsulate everything I felt as I stared into his eyes. I had trusted him, […]

Kandi’s Top 11 Reads of 2014

2014 was an amazing year for me. I published my second novel, a short story, and announced my third project which will be released early spring 2015.

How To Write A Book Review That’s Actually Worth Reading

If you’ve read a book recently (which, I’m assuming you have if you’re interested in this post), then you’ve inevitably noticed that in the back of most books, the author will ask you to write an honest review on the website where you purchased their book. It seems like a simple request, asking for a star-rating and a few sentences on how you felt about the work, but in reality, writing a review is challenging. Most of the time, books reach us on personal levels and really bring out a lot of emotions. Tapping into that and conveying a review […]

Special Announcement: What is #BN4?

For the last few weeks, you might have seen me referencing #BN4 on my author page or my personal account. You know I’ve been writing, you know I’m up to 25k now, but I haven’t muttered a peep about what I’m working on. Until now. I’m happy to finally announce the title of my current work in progress: Black Number Four. I have struggled with telling you about this project because I wanted to make sure I knew how to tell you. It was easy to tell you when I was working on Song Chaser because I just said, “Working […]
