KSP LIT: Trell King in the spotlight

 

48427669_2183761935020028_1475990108548104192_oTrell King resides in Gainesville, FL with her two boys and fiancé, Phillip Rutledge. Her love of literature at the age of four. It was in the second grade, after writing a story for a school assignment, her teacher told her she should become an author. When asked who are her favorites she stated Brenda Jackson and Omar Tyree.
All through high school she wrote short stories and poems. She stopped writing due to life and came back to it when her sister Maya urged her to write a story for the Short Story group on Facebook. The great feedback she received on the stories she wrote gave her more inspiration to take it serious with penning her debut novel. Mostly because the readers in the group told her she should try to get published. Which brought her to submit to Kindred Soul Publications. Fortunately, she heard back from Drusilla Mars one of the CEO’s and the rest is history. Her debut novel “The Little Games WE Play” is available on Amazon. Currently, she is hard at work on the sequel. All of her novels will eventually intertwine so be on the lookout for more stories from various characters.

By Myself I’m A Soldier

Meet debut  author Alechy Sumter who is in possession of a raw talent that she shows off effortlessly in her debut novel “By Myself I’m A Soldier”. Kindred Soul had a minute to ask Alechy some questions and she delivers in such a manner that makes you want to see what readers are in store for. Not only is a dope author she is a dope woman.

Readers can expect relatable life experiences in my books. I write about things that have impacted me i

When did you start to write?

Alechy: I honestly didn’t begin writing until I was forcefully sat down. At 26 years of age I was sentenced to 10 years on drug conspiracy charges. Time spent idle has a way of playing with your thought process and coping mechanisms so instead of losing my mind or taking my frustrations out on others I wrote. 

What inspires you the most to write?

Alechy: Circumstances and pressure pushes me to write. For myself, its therapeutic. The ability to allow my words to take me to another place mentally genuinely stimulates me to write.

What are five of your favorite books?

Alechy: A Piece of Mine by J. California Cooper, A Day Late and a Dollar Short by Terri McMillan, anything by Donald Goines, anything by Ca$h, Midnight by Sista Souljah, there’s too many to mention.

Ambitious. Resilient. Strong Willed!

 

What can readers expect from reading your book?

Alechy: Readers can expect relatable life experiences in my books. I write about things that have impacted me in one way or another. My characters are multifaceted and dimensional. All who go through things that we humans do but hide. Through my words, readers get to experience some of the ills I’ve been faced with. The hardships I’ve endured.

Why did you choose Kindred Soul Publications?

Alechy: I choose Kindred Soul Publications because I wanted to form a relationship with the individuals that understands and recognizes my vision. Kindred Soul Publications does that. Drusilla and Stephanie work hand in hand with their authors. I love that. I can always make contact them without having to go through a middle man. I’m fortunate to have signed with women who are focused on the quality of works they represent verses quantity

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Alechy: In five years I see myself on multiple bestseller list, writing full time while enjoying the fruits of my labor. The sky is not the limit. It’s only the view.

What genre do you write?

Alechy: I write urban novellas. Stories that represent the perils of “ghetto” America.
If you could talk to your younger self, what advice would you give her? To stay true to myself and not put others before me. If it doesn’t taste right to spit it out. Life will teach you some of the harshest lessons. Those lessons will sting and be tender to the touch, but you’ll heal. The only person that you’ll ever be better than is the person you were yesterday.

Describe yourself in three words.

Alechy: Ambitious. Resilient. Strong Willed!

Is there anything you want the readers to know about you?

Alechy: I’m an open book. I no longer live my life in fear of what others will think of me. This version of myself now is a shadow of who I used to be. Cuddle with me, talk to me, get to know me. The best is yet to come.

5/5

Sage Alexander is a young, beautiful, impressionable 18-year-old who’s supposed to have the world at her feet. But she finds herself pregnant and abandoned. Struggling to get by but determined to make ends meet. Sage works a minimum wage job while attending school to become a nurse. Things appear promising as Sage is determined to not allow her circumstances to deter her from pursuing her dreams.

Yet, weeks before giving birth to her daughter, Sage and her aunt Keria- whom she’s residing with- come to blows. Fists aren’t the only things thrown and Sage finds herself on the streets without a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. To add insult to injury, she’s fired from her place of employment. Homeless and destitute, Sage sticks her feet into unchartered waters when she connects with her cousin Mega, head of the murderous trio – The Undertakers to help her put things back into perspective.

Soon she’s making moves with thugs and is plagued with the dilemma of aspiring to fulfill her dream of becoming a nurse who preserves life or end the lives of others who’ve threaten her own. Torn between two worlds, Sage falls hard for Jahloni, who wants to lead her into the safety of his arms. But can she learn to trust again after the father of her child does the unthinkable? Or will the gravitational pull of the streets destroy her and the life she envisions for herself and young daughter? Will Sage sink or swim as her life spirals out of control?

The streets are watching in this seductive, edgy tale of deceit, envy and lies. Sage will captivate and infuriate readers with her sex appeal, maliciousness and naivety leaving them on the edge of their seats and thirsting for more!

When a man shows you that he’s everything you want and everything you don’t. Believe what you see.

Shamona relocated from her hometown in Baton Rouge to Houston for a change. She worked as a barmaid at “CHURCH” an underground gentlemen’s club where gambling tables and stripper poles crowded the space along with catty co-workers. There she meets the strikingly handsome hustler Claiyton “Country” Lebrado who just arrived back home from the hot streets of Miami. Shamona isn’t looking for love but she’s allured by Country’s charm and the suspicious activity that keeps him away most times.

I never got along with my heart

Just when she’s settled in with her new job she gets fired, and is forced to step out on faith once again to freelance with her right-hand Opal. The money pile and her love life on the uprising Shamona is gracefully coming into her own. That is, until one of Country’s many skeletons crawl out of the closet causing him to leave town again. While he’s gone Shamona moves on, and just when the odds of getting married are looking to work in her favor she gets a plethora of shocking revelations.

The past is knocking in more ways than one and the future is holding doors open for Shamona to live and let love, but what happens when your past, present and future are all in the same circle?

Creepin’ With the PLUG I Love

Drusilla Mars has been on a two year hiatus from releasing full length projects and coming back stronger than ever with her clever love stories and urban plot twists. First, she’s dropping this dope read to a kindle near you. If you would like to enjoy an excerpt about Country and Shamona, join our mailing list.
