A Minute With Author Deatri King-Bey

What's Your Name and the title or titles of your books?

 Deatri King-Bey and I’d like to introduce my latest title, Tease, the last book in the Write Brothers Series and the eBox set of the entire Write Brothers series, Sons 4 Sale.

What genre do you normally write in?

  Romance with a good dose of reality.

Could you tell us just a little about yourself?

 I started in the publishing industry over a decade ago as a developmental editor at Third World Press, Inc. the oldest African American owned publishing house in the country. My first published title was released in 2006 and since then I have 15 titles under my belt. On a personal note, I’ve been married 25 years to my hero and we have three beautiful daughters and the three greatest grandchildren EVER.

Will you give us a brief overview of your latest, or if you prefer, your favorite book?

TEASE: After Eva caught her fiancĂ© in bed with her cousin, she swore she'd never be played for the fool again. Now the ultimate bed-hopper—Tyler Write, has set his sights on her and she’s having difficulty resisting him.
Tyler can have any woman except the one he truly wants—Eva Simpson. Smooth lines and sweet talk won't work with her. To have a chance at Eva’s heart, he’ll have to show her who he really is.

Purchase this eBook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble. The print version will be released in a few weeks.

SONS 4 SALE (Write Brothers Series eBox Set): If Gloria Write hears “There are no good Black men…” one more time, she’ll scream. She has four sons who fit the bill and not one is married.  Desperate times call for desperate action. During the course of four novels, Gloria sets out to ensure her sons marry. The eBox set includes all four Write Brother novels.

Purchase the eBox set for $7.99 or each novel for $2.99 from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Are you working on anything new at the moment?

 My current work in progress is Hell Hath No Fury, book II of the dangerously-sexy Black Widow and the Sandman series I write with Curtis Alcutt as L. L. Reaper. By the way, the eBook versions of Black Widow and the Sandman are discounted from $5.99 to $2.99 during the Christmas in July sale I’m participating in.

What one statement would you like to make that you think our audience and your readers might benefit from?

 Learn from your past, prepare for the future, and live in the now.
