My review of the Break up Mix by TK Tami Carter
This is not my kind of book. Ever since Thelma and Louise, I avoid reading anything that might resemble best friends dealing with the strangeness of life. I always thought chick lit books were too girly, too emotional, too bound up to ever be worth a read.
And then I read the Break Up Mix. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a phenomenal book.
Somewhere in the middle of Michelle, Chance, Dani and Alissa I got caught up and strengthened. How often does a book change the way you view your friendships? That's what this did for me, in so many ways. A bit of every character's dilemmas has resided in my heart at least once. By the mid-book, I was completely entranced waiting for Tony, worried about Michelle, wondering about Chance, ready to send a card to Alissa. It may seem like too many characters, all women, all of an age, but this book made me cry for several different reasons. I want the CD, I want the Sunrise Mix, I want to have friends that take on the world just for me, even when I am lost. Freakin YES!!!!
My first anthology is publishing in June, 2015. It is titled Prep For Doom and written with the contributions of 20 dystopian authors! I am so excited to be chosen as one of them!
My story is the prologue, titled The Gift. It is the only story set outside the United States where the pandemic at large hits and the other stories evolve.
I researched and read everything I could about Africa, Ghana and Nigeria and put my heart into writing Dede Afi John's story.
What we need now are a few contributors to help defray marketing costs and get the party started.

Three books. Three books and three days. I have to read. You know that feeling? That "I know this book is amazing and is going to rock my world" urge? I have on my iphone The Breakup Mix by TK Carter. I am 25 pages in and my kids keep playing minecraft on my phone, draining the battery. *Glares at kids. I know. I could remove the minecraft app, it would solve my immediate problem. But then what chum would I throw to the circling sharks ermmm kids while I write? Ok. So, I have a plan:
I bought pizzas and put them on the table, did the dishes, took a shower and am now squirreled away in my bed. Breakup Mix here I come!
Oh, look mail!
The Scorpio Project, Amy Bartelloni just came in the mail!!! ooohhh it's so pretty, and mysterious and about the postapocalyptic world my brain lives in. hmmmmm Girlfriend bonding or Girls in bondage breaking free?? Now I must choose.
Oh. Spark Rising? Kate Corcino? Sparky spark spark and its right here on my kindle? The reviews, the excitement!!
It's really like having Neopolitan Ice cream and being told to just eat the chocolate. What about strawberry? What about vanilla?
I need them all!
Three books, three days. One girl and my reader dilemmas ;)
