The awesome Carleen Brice wrote an equally awesome book titled, ORANGE MINT AND HONEY, which was released February 12, 2008. And the folks over at Lifetime Movie Network thought so as well and bought the movie rights to OMAH. 😀
Being Lifetime and all, they changed the title, and the movie will be called Sins of the Mother, starring Jill Scott and a host of other wonderful stars. The movie will air on Lifetime Movie Network on February 21, 2010, at 8:00 EST.
Also, Carleen has another book, CHILDREN OF THE WATERS, that was released on June 23m 2009. Be sure to pick up both books–not just because she’s my friend, but because she’s a rockin’ author. 😀
You can visit Carleen here, and here, where she encourages White readers to buy Black books.
Oh, and here’s the movie trailer for Sins of the Mother:
P.S. I am posting a contest on Monday for an unrelated work of fiction. 😀
So cool! Super Cool!1 Congrats to Carleen! Thanks for letting us know about it Tyhitia! Sounds like an interesting story. 😀 Happy writingHinny
I live for authors rich in melanin darlin. LIVE FOR THEM!!!I will be picking up both books!
This looks awesome, and I will definitely watch it, and buy Carleen's book. For the record, her title is waaaay cooler than the TV title. They must think it was less likely to attract viewers.I'm sort of a sallow, pale green color, but I think I count for white!
The preview is very interesting and I may just buy the book and the other too. Will sure check back for your contest.
Ouch! More books to buy. It's so dangerous to visit your blog.
Will be watching. 🙂
I saw the preview of \”Sins of the Mother,\” but as always, I'm big about reading the book first. The storyline looked amazing. I'm glad to hear it was a book first. I love reading the books before seeing the movies.
Carleen,You're welcome! 😀 I can't wait.Kara,No problem. Carleen is so cool, I had to spread the word. :-DCas,Thanks. ;-)Robin,LOL. Caspar is White too (on the outside) but she's Black on the inside. ;-)Myne,Make sure you do that. You won't be sorry. :-DRick,No, not at all. You'll like the contest on Monday. ;-)Raine,Yay! :-DChris,I like to read the book first too, but I already have my copy. Had it since it first came out. 😀 There will be encore viewings.
Very cool, and congrats Carleen!
I saw that \”Sins of the Mother\” was on this weekend, but titles like that remind me of my own mother's sins & I prefer to avoid the entire subject…
Jess,It is cool, isn't it? :-DLana,Many people agreed that the name should not have changed. 😉 The book is called Orange Mint and Honey, but Lifetime changed it for dramatic purposes.
carleen, that's super!i won your amazing book and thoroughly enjoyed it… look forward do seeing the movie, and the new book, toothx t!
I taped the show and watched it last week. I loved it! My favorite part is Shay constantly telling her mom to stop calling her Lashay. Every time her mom called her Lashay I would think, \”How many times does the poor girl have to tell you?!!!\”
