If Your Wife Only Knew by Cydney Rax

By | The Rax Files | No Comments

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 www.cydneyrax.com 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.

RECKLESS is one of the hottest African-American anthologies on the market in 2012

Available in trade paper, audio CD, and e-book formats.

Reckless showcases three of the finest writers in
the street literature today: Cydney Rax, Niobia Bryant and Grace Octavia.
Readers will be captivated by these thrilling tales of love, lust and betrayal.
The anthology explores the choices a woman will make when faced with an indecent
proposal: from desperate housewives with scandalous secrets to the life of a
glamourous actress whose stardom is at stake.

Desperate Housewife by Cydney Rax

Carmen Foster thinks she has it all–a perfect
house, kids, and marriage. Until she stumbles upon racy texts from her
husband, Forrest, to his baby mama, Toni–who desperately wants Forrest back.
Carmen is devastated and decides she can forgive Forrest if she just has an
affair of her own. But when a scheming Toni gets involved and threatens to
reveal Carmen’s secret, revenge takes an unexpected and explosive turn.

by Niobia Bryant

A psychologist specializing in addiction, Brie Bailey is
surprised to find that her work is affecting her personal life in unexpected
ways. For the first time, she has something to hide. And when her impulsive
actions lead her into a web of danger, Brie finds herself losing control of
everything. . .

L.A. Confidential by Grace Octavia

Stevie Silver, Black
Hollywood’s sitcom sweetheart, is in for a run of very bad luck. Her conniving
assistant, Kristine, has her sights on Stevie’s career–and on her T.V. producer
husband. Kristine will do whatever it takes to win, from blackmail to seduction.
But when a series of lies and betrayals comes to a head in the canyons behind
the Hollywood sign, more than stardom is at stake. .
