Hey hey now.

I’m very excited this morning. As you know, IF YOUR WIFE ONLY KNEW brought lots of fanfare, discussion and controversy. Just how I like it. And up next is the second novel in the Love & Revenge Series. It’s titled MY MARRIED BOYFRIEND. Now THAT’S a title for you. And the action continues with Rashad, Kiara, Nicole and Alexis. I so love these characters. They felt very real to me. They made me laugh. They are intriguing. And I hope that you will pick up a copy of book 2, read it, and post about it.


Now, here’s the fun part. My e-book of IYWOK is currently on sale everywhere for only $2.99. Great price for a great book. So get your copy and get ready for MMB which drops on 8/30.

Also, a book that I wrote a while ago is now in Target and Wal-Mart, plus at all the other online bookstores. It’s called BROTHERS & WIVES, and it’s the follow-up to MY HUSBAND’S GIRLFRIEND, another one of my popular novels that had a lot of tongues wagging, and got a bunch of women upset.




If that’s not enough, if you’re on Twitter tonight, I will be participating in LITish. You can drop authors a line, ask us questions, etc. My time slot is 6PM EST. My Twitter handle is NeeCee48204. See ya then. Thanks for your support as always.

If Your Wife Only Knew by Cydney Rax

I’m just popping in to say how very excited I am to find out that so many libraries across the U.S. and even in some parts of the world, have included my latest novel IF YOUR WIFE ONLY KNEW as part of their library collection. This is a dream come true. It seems like yesterday I would visit Houston area libraries and would read other books written by African American writers. Folks like E. Lynn Harris, Omar Tyree, Yolanda Joe, Marita Golden, Gloria Naylor, and so many others. They inspired me. And the reference books about writing and the publishing industry taught me.

So thanks to the hundreds of libraries that have purchased the book. And to the readers who are checking out the novel. Make sure and post your comments. You may contact me via my website or post on any online review site.

Another thing that I’m happy about are all the new readers that are discovering my works. Yes! That is an author’s dream. I can tell I have a brand new audience of folks that are getting to know my storylines and characters. Excellent and encouraging info.

BTW, I will be headed to a branch of the Houston Public Library on Feb. 26 at 2pm. Here is the info. Come out and see me at their Meet the Author event.

Nothing Like A Good Tasting Smoothie
I am working from home today and decided to take a break. Ended up making a smoothie and wanted to share the recipe.
The good thing about homemade smoothies is you can add any ingredients you want. Here’s my recipe:

6 freshly sliced strawberries
2 fresh bananas
2 fresh broccoli spears
2 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 cup milk
1 strawberry yogurt
1 pineapple yogurt
2 cups apple cinammon tea
2 tablespoons pure honey
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinammon
1 tablespoon pure vanilla

Place all ingredients into electric blender. Add ice cubes. Blend until smooth. Enjoy. #Smoothie #Smoothies #GreenSmoothiecydney smoothie

WARNING: This is NOT a thick smoothie. Very liquid but still delish.

I really enjoy listening to an actor narrate my novels. It is amazing to hear the book come alive through the actor’s interpretation of my characters, especially when sound effects are added. You can visualize everything that is happening and it makes for an entertaining experience.

Just in time for the holidays a new audiobook is ready for pre-order.

You may now pre-order or order the audiobook of IF YOUR WIFE ONLY KNEW.

Here’s the link:
