I read this book and I personally recommend it, it is excellent!! :)
Book cover | Designed by Nuri.
Lord knows i’ve wanted to properly pimp this, but this move is taking up all my time. let’s go with bullet points:
Dynasty | Adventures In The Land Of Music | Makeda and Feroze often speak in tunes to each other, instead of with words.
And let’s communicate through the music
‘Cause that’s the only way to lasting harmony
Zero 7 | Somersault | A song of deeply hopeful proportions that echoes Makeda’s feelings for Feroze.
You give love to all and give love to me
You’re obsessed with hiding the sticks and stones
When I fear the unknown
You feel like home, you feel like home
You put my feet back on the ground
Did you know you brought me around
You were sweet and you were sound
You saved me
A Chapter 7 excerpt from Love Throws Dominoes: “Someone told me that you are a pearl in a room full of fireworks. It’s true,” he murmured, tracing her bottom lip with his thumb. “Pearls are slow and painstaking to grow; but when they come out of their shell, they are an instant classic.”
Two days until release date, and a week left for Nuri’s housing donation drive. Mad gratitude to those who have helped her achieve a dream. We’re still pushing for the mark, and reblogs always help the cause! Thanks all.
Ya know, just that book I wrote about my friend who is going to London for art school—and still needs help paying for a place to live. Help a sistah out. Thanks so much to those who have already.
I can’t believe it’s finally done! This project is full of a lot of love and hard work and I’m still having a bit of a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that it’s directed at me. But it is, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Aside from the fact that you’ll be helping me pay for school, it’s an amazing read. You will not be disappointed. Also available for the Nook.
Only a week to go until the debut of Love Throws Dominoes, and ten days left for Nuri’s housing donation drive. Thanks to all those who have given. We’re still working toward the goal of helping her get a place to live.
Meanwhile, I’m creating a book trailer and need input on music. The script for the trailer will be adapted from the book premise.

Avant | Sailing | Music that motivates Makeda to work on her portfolio and pursue her dream of studying art abroad.
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe in me
Sailing takes me away
To where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
Soon I will be free, yeah
