Hanging in Harlem!!! HBF 2012
I had an amazing time at the Harlem Book Fair this year. I enjoyed
meeting so many author friends from my Facebook circle. NyKole was the coolest chic to hang out with and she was serious about
her game! Learned a lot about the hustle of books and how to network! Next year should be even more fabulous!!!! Finally met
Mr. Stacey L Moor...that was interesting as well. BUT the BEST MOMENT of my trip was God placing Dr. Cornel West in along
my journey!!! I spend a lot of time sitting on the panels and arguing with or against his ideas in my mind or at the television...so
to meet him in person meant a great deal for me!! Absolutely the most amazing experience of the entire trip for me!!! Hands
down! He has a copy of A Lover's Redemption...you better get yours too!!!

Sh' Moore & Cornel West
He should really add me to a panel discussing relationships in
Black America....I could handle it!!!! Somebody get that word to him....LOL! #soserious
The Other Man
"No man should forget how to satisfy his woman. For that sorry man, there is always chance. There is
always a chance that he will wake up to a woman whose smiles are not for him. There is always the chance that he will kiss
a woman whose lips taste of a stranger. There is always a chance that she will moan in memory of the last time she lay in
that position with the other man. There is always the chance that another cat is taming
That inconsiderate brother better learn that love won't
always be enough. Because if he doesn't, my new girl will!"
The Not So
"It was finally time for the silent power struggle to end. In this moment, someone would become the pursuer and
the other the prey. Shamia knew that her fantasy wouldn't be complete if she didn't take advantage of her opportunities. How
often did she get to be in control? Her husband would never surrender his power to her. She pulled the familiar stranger's
defined back against her breast and began to tease his ears with her tongue. He even tasted different from her husband.
Shamia noticed his scent. He smelled nothing like Stephan.
As she calculated all the ways this creature was unlike her husband, she felt the changes in his posture.
She became more empowered as his ridged body slowly relaxed into hers. She soon began to feel the struggle end as she realized
she victoriously owned him."
The Interested Co-Worker
What has unadulterated
love taught me? It’s taught me lessons that will forever shape my thoughts and actions. I will never place my
needs second to a man's. I now know that... if he won’t wife me, he ain’t for me.See men and women… we are much the same. Sometimes we love hard, someone who hardly loves
us back. We end up being wounded. There are no bandages large enough to patch this wound in its entirety. However wounded
our heart is, the truth remains that it is not removed. Thus, at some point, a portion of it still lives on to love again….only
the prior wound turns to caution. In that caution, we are guarded and tend to see love through a lot less tinted glasses.
Although rose colored, we tend to spend more time glancing over the rim than through the lens. I see love differently now…
I know better now….love is so much different now. I own my emotions and know that they are mine to protect or neglect.
Nothing is by chance. Love, life and lessons are calculated… now.
A Lover's RedemptionYou have arrived at the one place you don't want to escape. In this space, the world
is clear and understanding is simple. For on this stage, the audience is more aware than the actors. Here you can see the
lessons and lives as they are taught and learned. In Sh' Moore's world....reality plays out with each turn of the page.
Meet the players in various novels as they go about their existences shaking up those of others. Here marriage
isn't always sacred, honesty isn't always true, and love doesn't always conquer all. In the reality that Sh'Moore paints,
sometimes the best man doesn't walk away with the prize.
