Meet Author Really Rashida

Posted on April 3, 2013


RashidaWhen you were published for the first time, which route did you go – mainstream, small press, vanity published or self-published and why or how did you choose this route? My first time I around I chose the self-publishing route and continue to do so. I decided to do it this way because I need the opportunity to learn about the business. I can only do that by being hands on. Also, I want to establish a brand and platform first so I can increase my chances of getting a book deal.

What do you have on the burner for the next year? I will be doing a lot more touring to promote this upcoming year. I have two novels that will be coming out after Toxic. The first being an urban murder mystery called Beautiful Liar.

Tell us something few know about you. I am a very deep thinking and spiritual person. I believe in the metaphysical. One of my favorite things to eat is sardines with hot sauce.c. The first being an urban murder mystery called Beautiful Liar.

If you could change one thing about your writing career thus far, what would it be? I would have learned more and did more research on both the craft and business of writing before I wrote my first book. It would have saved me sometime and mistakes.

How can readers reach you?

Tell us about Toxic: Love is a hell of a drug and Tracey is a full-blown addict. Just when she thought she was over the lies, abuse, and betrayal from her boyfriend, Andre, she had fallen right back into his trap. What started out as a romantic reunion between the estranged lovers ended in kidnapping and over twelve hours of torture for Tracey.

When she was finally set free she ran to the person who always bails her out when she gets knee deep in drama: her best friend and mentor, Sandra. Hearing how Andre violated Tracey again told her that it was time to introduce an unorthodox way to stop Andre permanently. Tracey was going to kill him and Sandra would teach her how.

The plan was done and the scene was set perfectly. All Tracey had to do was slip some poison in Andre’s drink. Unfortunately, the murder goes terribly wrong and he escapes. Now Tracey has to find him and finish the job before it’s too late.

As the ladies race against time to clean up Tracey’s mess a ghost from her past shows up and an unexpected enemy joins the war, which complicates everything.
How do you leave a love so toxic that it can kill you, literally? Watch Tracey as she proves how far she is willing to go to answer that question.
