Atlanta, GA, February 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- In the infamous words of our favorite bad guy, Tony Montana, when asked what’s coming to him, “The World, Chico, and everything in it.” This is the dream, the reason that most of us get up every day. And while all of us may not be living the dream, we can live vicariously through our favorite characters in books and in film.
“Books take you into a world that’s more than fantasy,” says April Harris, author of Change of Heart and Promise Ring. “Books can help you cope with the normalcy of everyday life. Whether fiction, fantasy, or self-help, books are a breath of fresh air that provides so much more entertainment than television.” Change of Heart and Promise Ring are My Own Books Publishing new releases, focusing on African American characters living the dream. These two books capture the essence of love, life, and dreams.
Change of Heart is a coming of age tale of the thin line between friendship and love. It gives you an enticing romantic tale of a young woman's romantic journey through life while answering the classic question: Can friends be lovers? While Change of Heart brings the readers into the dazzling life of the rich and famous, Promise Rings shows the grittier side of the American Dream. Promise Ring is the story of two young hustlers committed to each other, family, and to their dream.
Change of Heart and Promise Ring are more than entertainment. What Ms. Harris has done with these books is examine the dynamic of African American relationships and bring love and family back to the forefront of these relationships. Drawing on personal experiences in relationships and her life, Ms. Harris has written two exceptionally different views on the L-word. With characters that captivate and inspire, Change of Heart and Promise Ring will catapult readers into a world they won’t want to leave.
