joan morgan - home girls make some noiseHOME GIRLS MAKE SOME NOISE (ISBN 978-1-600043-010-7) is an anthology of critical essays, poetry and artwork that explores issues of race, class, gender and sexuality in contemporary hip-hop culture. It is the hip-hop generations’ BUT SOME OF US ARE BRAVE.

Praise for HOME GIRLS MAKE SOME NOISE!: A HIP-HOP FEMINSIM ANTHOLOGY:

“What Gwendolyn Pough, Elaine Richardson, Rachel Raimist, and Aisha Durham have down with Home Girls Make Some Noise is to provide hip-hop and the generations that lay claim to it, a living document that chronicles just how vital hip-hop is to the everyday realities of contemporary America… women make up 51% of the world population–it’s about time hip-hop acknowledges that reality. Home Girls Make Some Noise is a bold step towards that end.”
— from the Foreword written by Mark Anthony Neal

“As made wonderfully clear by the 478 pages that comprise Home Girls Make Some Noise hip-hop feminists are talking up a storm. We are conversing internationally, across the Caribbean to Africa, Brazil, Europe and Australia. Our words build bridges between those of us who do the work in different mediums, between journalists and academics, b-girls and poets, deejays and MCs, artists and activists. The carefully compiled pages of this diverse anthology respects differences yet they also define the commonalities between our mutual struggles as gay, straight, old, young and younger feminist men and women. These pages connect us to comrades we may never know but whose struggles we must figure how to embrace in order to create a feminism that strives not only for a better hip-hop but a better world. One thing for sure, we may differ in our delivery but the spirit is the same. These collective voices straight sh#$! on the myth that hip-hop’s sexism renders women powerless. Or silent.”
— from the Afterword written by Joan Morgan

gwyneth bolton - sweet sensationSWEET SENSATION (978-1585712069) is the second book in Gwyneth Bolton’s Hip-Hop Debutants trilogy and the follow-up book to her award winning first novel, I’M GONNA MAKE YOU LOVE ME.

Praise for SWEET SENSATION:

“Gwyneth Bolton brings readers into the exciting and sometimes dangerous world of hip-hop with her newest book SWEET SENSATION… I’ve gotta tell you I loved the attitude and spirit that are apparent throughout this storyline. It’s full of all the culture and enthusiasm I remember from when hip-hop first became so popular… Congratulations Ms. Bolton on yet another fabulous story!”
— Chrissy Dionne for Romance Junkies

“SWEET SENSATION is one of the BEST hip-hop romances ever written. It has all the elements of hip-hop — love, sex, violence, revenge, lyrical flow and money. Bolton has penned an eloquent all encompassing love story that highlights the importance of family. SWEET SENSATION is embedded in the world of hip-hop music and will touch your heart, develop a love of rap music, and rise to bestsellers list in no time.”
— Monique Bruner for Real Page Turners

“I highly commend Gwyneth Bolton for creating a wonderful tale that shatters the stereotypes surrounding the hip hop generation. Despite the fact that SWEET SENSATION follows the general rules for romance, it is a unique story that offers a few surprises. The hero and heroine are multi-dimensional, quirky, and imaginative and the supporting characters add depth and texture to the story. I enjoyed that there were numerous positive male characters, the social commentary, and the fact that the story highlighted the human side of hip hop artists. SWEET SENSATION is likely to appeal to a broad audience of readers. Fans of traditional romance will enjoy it.”
— Stacey Seay for The RAWSISTAZ Reviewer

“Ms. Bolton’s debut novel I’m Gonna Make You Love Me is the launch pad for her most incredible love story in Sweet Sensation. Sweet Sensation is a mesmerizing story that seems to develop and take on a life of its own right before your eyes. I could go all day telling you about this story. It is highly recommended for oodles of reasons. It is a sensational love story, the sex is off the hook HOT and the layout of the story is just awesome.”
— Eleanor S. Shields for Black Butterfly Review
