Grace, I want to welcome you and thank you for stopping by The Neophyte Author. What brings you here today?
You know the saying can’t nobody tell it like you can. With the upcoming release of the book, Seasoned with Grace in which I am the star I wanted to make sure I get ahead of this thing and let everyone know who I am.
Who are you Grace King?
I’m a fabulous and fierce supermodel with a slight criminal history.
Slight? Is that accurate? When I checked you record–
Slight. I said slight, I’ve been arrested less times than DMX so, I consider my record to be slight. Do we really want to dig up skeltons? I’m sure you’ve got a few to share. You’re not the only one with research skills.
Grace the last place I want to be is on your bad side, I’ve heard you don’t play around. Why is that?
I’ve been on my own since I was sixteen and the streets of New York are much like the jungle–it’s kill or be killed, eat or be eaten. Although, most would say I’ve ascended far beyond my days on the street there are some things that you just can’t let go of. I just don’t know how to not defend myself and when I sense someone is on the attack I’d rather be the aggressor instead of the victim.
Some say that you’ve been a victim before and that’s why you’re overly aggressive. Is there any truth to that rumor?
I have been taken advantage of in my lifetime by people that I was supposed to be able to trust–some church folks. Y’all always doing dirt when you’re supposed to be serving God, but that’s neither here nor there. What’s really important is the release of Seasoned with Grace. All of my fans and new supporters will have the opportunity to see inside of my home, my heart, and my struggles in a way that others have not.
What should readers expect from this book?
Readers should expect a fierce and fabulous ride with the one and only Grace King. They’ll have V.I.P. access to all of my shenanigans and of course there’s quite a bit eye candy in book. They’ll get to meet, Ethan Summerville my dedicated, extremely bright, and handsome lawyer; Pastor David, the pastor of Mount Carmel Community Church, and Horace Brown, my chocolate drop. Ladies, let me warn you know, don’t get too many ideas when you meet him. The only one who is going to taste that chocolate will be me once he stops playing hard to get. Seasoned with Grace is will tackle some touchy stuff that I have dealt with in my life like addiction, rape, and abortion. Things I couldn’t openly discuss until you wrote this book. Thank you for that, Nigeria.
It was my pleasure Grace. Why did you allow me to be the author of your tale?
I’m a harsh, abrasive Harlemite and you know how to make the grit of life look and sound good. I trusted to you to honor my story and I believe you did.
Before I let you go, Grace King, one last question–I can’t let you go without getting some fashion tips from you. What are your recommendations for this spring and summer?
Floral is in. I recommend buying a floral print pantsuit and a few pastel shirts and jeans. You can easily mix and match and work the trend. For the woman on the go and in need of a day to night look I’d recommend a figure flattering floral print dress with pumps in the day and a neutral shoe with fringes at night. For the daring sisters, sheer blouses are the go to item, but make sure your undergarments are the same color as the blouse. This summer jumpers are a must. I know the naturals are ruling the scene, but I have a feeling that short hair will make a comeback this year and even if it doesn’t I’m still going to be rocking this short cut. For more of my style tips please visit the Seasoned with Grace board on Pinterest that I help Nigeria curate. Thanks for having me on for Character Chatter. I’m going to try and get the rest of my buddies to sit down with you. To all those reading please one-click Seasoned with Grace today. You’re going to enjoy this ride.
