My Married Boyfriend is Back

Cydney Rax’s novel MY MARRIED BOYFRIEND was received with great acclaim and excitement. Readers couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going on with wife Kiara Eason and her philandering husband Rashad. Throw in two side chicks (yes, two) and there’s tons of room for drama, tension, and all kinds of complications. Especially when bad boy Ajalon comes to town.

The mass market copy of MY MARRIED BOYFRIEND will be in stores and available to purchase on Tuesday, December 26. Make sure and order your copy.

Revenge-of-the-MistressOne very unique thing that has happened since the release of REVENGE OF THE MISTRESS is the wonderful experience of having the book being discussed by The Tea. This is a group of four women who select a book to read and then discuss various topics related to the book in front of a studio audience.

I absolutely enjoyed seeing the video production. I think you may enjoy it as well. Here’s the link:

Revenge of the Mistress

In addition, check out the author interview that was produced by B Creative / Digital Media. If you are an aspiring author, this info may inspire you.

That entire situation was a lot of fun. Let me know what you think.
