30 Day Countdown for the New @SouljahBooks Finally!

If you have been holding your breath like me, waiting for Sister Souljah’s next book, get excited!  In 2006, I read The Coldest Winter Ever along with all my friends and feel head over heels. Never had a book taken me on a journey the way this story had. Now, 7 years later, the sequel is finally out. The Coldest Winter has so many juicy details packed into the 500 pages is enough to make a television series. Can’t wait to see what Sister Souljah has in store for us in this book.

A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story will be released Jan 29.

At last, mega-bestselling author Sister Souljah delivers the stunning sequel to The Coldest Winter Ever. Fierce, raw, and filled with adventure and emotional intensity, A Deeper Love Inside is an unforgettable coming-of-age story in the words of Porsche Santiaga, Winter’s younger sister.

Sharp-tongued, quick-witted Porsche worships her sister Winter. Cut from the same cloth as her father, Ricky Santiaga, Porsche is also a natural-born hustler. Passionate and loyal to the extreme, she refuses to accept her new life in group homes, foster care, and juvenile detention after her family is torn apart. Porsche—unique, young, and beautiful—cries as much as she fights and uses whatever she has to reclaim her status. Unselfish, she pushes to get back everything that ever belonged to her wealthy, loving family.

In A Deeper Love Inside, readers will encounter their favorite characters from The Coldest Winter Ever, including Winter and Midnight. Sister Souljah’s soulful writing will again move your heart and open your eyes to a shocking reality.

About Midnight and the Meaning of Love
Powerful and sensual, Midnight is an intelligent, fierce fighter and Ninjutsu-trained ninja warrior. He attracts attention wherever he goes but remains unmoved by it and focuses on protecting his mother and sister and regaining his family’s fortunes. When Midnight, a devout Muslim, takes sixteen-year-old Akemi from Japan as his wife, they look forward to building a life together, but their tumultuous teenage marriage is interrupted when Akemi is kidnapped and taken back to Japan by her own father, even though the marriage was consummated and well underway.  Midnight must travel across three countries and numerous cultures in his attempt to defeat his opponent. Along this magnificent journey he meets people who change him forever, even as he changes them. He encounters temptations he never would have imagined and takes risks that many a lesser man would say no to, all for the women he loves and is sworn to protect.  Midnight and the Meaning of Love by Sister Souljah was released by Atria Books on April 12th.  For more information and to read an excerpt from the novel please visit:

Meeting Sister Souljah

“We love her, we have been loving her!”

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know that I have been sending out Tweets about Midnight and the Meaning of Love non-stop.  Amazing book and Sister Souljah is the truth.  The reason the story is so intriguing to me is because of the cross cultural references, interracial love, multi city adventures and dynamic personalities and strong women in every shape and sense.

I use to think I was young Winter Santiaga, now I know im Chaisa Hiyoku Brown….  I also spectulate that Midnight is a Libra (such a level headed guy), Chaisa a Gemini (so vivacious) and Akemi a Pisces (such a dreamer) but that’s just me.   Here is Souljah and her team.

I took the train across the ways to Newark Public Library to listen to Sister Souljah talk and do her book signing.  She is gracious, sparkling and exactly how I imagined. I was so happy to be there and see a room filled with people who also love and read Sister Souljah.  The gift of storytelling. Amazing.  Here is what some of her fans has to say.

So 13 hours later, I emerge a changed person. Sister Souljah first novel The Coldest Winter Ever shook me to the core and shaped a lot of my developing tastes from the age of 16 to 24. Her new book Midnight has once again become one of the most influential books I have read. On so many levels, Sister Souljah has made me examine my own life, my choices, beliefs, values and most important my views on life, love, culture, family and religion. There are just so many things about this book that made me stay up til 3am and then up at 8am to read straight til 3pm. Yes, it’s one of those. This book made me want to call those I love, reposition the love prospect, my own life and responsibilities as a woman and fall in love all over again with her writing. I am a changed person because of this book today. A beautiful story of love (parental, filial, platonic, erotic, self, religious, cultural). Sister Souljah frames the story with intensely detailed characters that make the story powerful. Contrasting Akemi, Bangs and Umma show one thing clearly – a strong female is not a victim of her circumstance but sees how to preserver through life. Highly recommend.
