A Little Bit of Sin Synopsis

My pen name is Nikki Nicole and I am a published freelance writer in San Diego, CA. I have completed several manuscripts, one of which is A Little Bit of Sin. Not to be categorized as your average “chick-lit” novel, A Little Bit of Sin is for the Ivana Trump follower: “don’t get mad, get everything.” Everything you’ve always wanted but didn’t dare reach out and grab such as relief…revenge…redirection...

What makes a good relationship go bad relationship is the million dollar question nowadays; however, what we learn from them as individuals is our own life lesson. Sinatra Graham is a supportive wife, loving mother and savvy business woman who, for all intents and purposes has it going on, until that pivotal ‘one thing’ happens and the domino effect ensues and she’s thrust into a world where nothing is as it appears to be.

Her marriage is not the monogamous picture of perfection that she always assumed it was, her kids are growing up quicker than she’d like and shifting into unruly teen mode, she’s experiencing more drama-filled days at work then she’d like and as if matters couldn’t get any worse her sexy and tempting first love is back on the block which threatens to further shatter her fa├žade of a perfect life.

It appears that all she holds near and dear is transforming around her, and not for the better. Sinatra weighs her options. She can divorce her husband, struggle like the rest of the single moms, be one of her ex’s ‘women’ or she can put her game face on and like assembling the perfect outfit, she can pick and choose, mix and match the shattered pieces of her once perfect existence however she wants and work it to her benefit. What will Sinatra do?

This is the quest I will take my readers on between the pages of A Little Bit of Sin. A little bit of me, you, them, their sister and their cousin; we can all identify with the drama of everyday life. The turmoil, trials and tribulations of others are meant to be a road map or at least food for thought for those stuck in the same or similar situations.

Thank you in advance for you time and consideration of my work. I hope to hear from you soon.

Recently Published

I just received a couple of contributors copies of Fire Magazine (www.firemagz.com) and my poem What U Do is in the issue!! Even after being published in magazines several times I still get giddy when I see my name and my work in print. So, if you can check it out I cannot find the issue date on the cover however it is the one featuring Robin Thicke and Lil Scrappy.

I Won!!

I won 2nd place in the Feb. 07 "Lovelined" Poetry contest featured at Lyrics Inc. Magazine. My prizes consisted of a tee shirt, $25.00 and a certificate. Yes, I'm ballin!! I am sooo sorry for posting so late in the game becuz the poem was on their site but probably has been removed by now.

Finally

Finally I have made a decision concerning self-publishing my book, A Little Bit of Sin. It is in pre-production and should be available within four months, if I stay on deadline, which I am gonna try to do with all of my might. I do have a few concerns as far as the title. I did google the word 'Sin' and it is in quite a few urban titles right now so I am considering changing the name of the book. Originally, I titled the book Any Questions? I might be going back to that name. I am unsure right now. I am awaiting my editorial evaluation from iuniverse which is suppose to be a 10-20 page breakdown of my book. We will see. So at this time I am awaiting the eval and getting my marketing on online. I am also shopping for a company to do a book trailer. I believe I have found the company I want to use. Does any have any suggestions? If so, do tell. I am leaning towards SWK Designs. They are responsible for the book trailers for Alethea P's The Bag Lady and Jeff Rivera's Forever My Lady. I'm really diggin' both of those. I have taken professsional photos for press and my book cover and am drafting a press kit as we speak. I am trying to gear up for the release of my book. Any authors/writers out there wanna show a sistah some love with some suggestions....feel free. Smooches.....
