1) MEDIA

::This issue, SD talks with author JENNY GARDINER, whose debut
novel, SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER has received RAVE
REVIEWS — one from Meg Cabot reads: A fun, sassy read! A cross
between Erma Bombeck and Candace Bushnell, reading Jenny Gardiner
is like sinking your teeth into a big frosted chocolate cupcake…you
just want more.

::Sensual, real, jazzy, neo soul, eclectic music your thing? According
to SD founder Tonya yt Howard, it should be, and this issue, she
introduces us to the wonderful artist, SHARON MUSGRAVE!

::Being HOT and BOTHERED takes on a whole new meaning when
SisterDivas talks with poet (and SD deems “life commentator”)
PHYLLIS JOHNSON, who talks candidly about that time in women’s
live when temperatures rise…and not in the “good” way!

::SD editor Shon Bacon knows a thing or two about being a
renaissance woman, and in this issue of SD, she meets her match
with poet, radio host, editor, and (more) NICOLE STEVENSON,
a woman with her hands in everything!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
2) TOTAL BODY

::In Letters to My Sisters, Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu, through thirty intensely
personalized letters to her patients, addresses various questions that
focus on women’s medical issues. These include routine and complex
questions that every patient would want to ask and expect their doctor
to answer. Read Sharon Haynes’ review on this insightful book!

::Everyday, people suffer with failure – of relationships, of jobs, of
finances…the list goes on ad nauseam. Many times, these same people
can’t see the nugget of truth that hides within the failure, the truth
that can enable them to grow and prosper in the future. In her latest
commentary, There is No Failure, Only Feedback, Dr. Cherry examines
how we can find the purpose behind failure in order to move from the
failure in a positive way.

::Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting, by Terrie Williams,
identifies emotional pain—which uniquely and profoundly affects the
Black experience—as the root of lashing out through desperate acts of
crime, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, eating and shopping, gambling,
and sex. Few realize these destructive acts are symptoms of our inner
sorrow. Reviewer Sharon Haynes shares her thoughts on this provocative
book, a book desperately needed in the African American community.

3) FEATURE

In EPISODE Three of LOVE BYTES, SD’s new online serial, Destiny
couldn’t get Devon’s sexy dance out of her head, and she couldn’t
get him out of her home as he paid her a surprise visit full of food,
talk, and kisses!

NOW, in EPISODE FOUR, Destiny’s cyberfriend suggests she finally
accept a date with Devon. She takes his advice, and although she’s
beyond giddy to spend time with him, she can’t help but to let her
past creep into her mind, dampening her excitement…

::Excerpt::

Destiny nodded her head, remembering the question and sighed.
“He does have a point.”

“Who does?”

Destiny swiveled in her chair, her eyes falling upon Devon , looking
just as good as he had yesterday, except for today he was stylishly
dressed in a black suit, crisp white shirt, and black and gold designer
tie.

Damn, Destiny thought, he would have to look all fine and
everything today.

She cleared her throat and responded, “No one. Was just talking
out loud, thinking. So, what’s up?”

Devon smiled his big, bright, come hither smile and sauntered
across Destiny’s office, sitting down in the stiff back, burgundy
leather chair in front of Destiny’s desk.

“I wanted to say hi,” he said, placing his large hands upon her
desk. “Wanted to see how things were with you.”

Destiny laughed. “Didn’t you see me yesterday?”

“Yeah, but we were interrupted…” Devon ‘s eyes linked with
Destiny’s and for a brief moment, she felt as if she would
spontaneously combust. The heat that shot from Devon ‘s eyes
was lethal. “I was wondering if we could pick up where we left
off.” Devon reached out and touched Destiny’s hands. She jumped
from her chair.

4) LIFE

::No one wants to say the “R” word these days: RECESSION, but
let’s face it, money is TIGHT for EVERYBODY! And those women
who want to be fabulous are finding it devastatingly hard to budget
fabulousness into their spending habits. All That Glitters columnist
Melodye Shore feels women’s plights, and in her article, OF
LIPSTICK AND OTHER LOW-COST LUXURIES, she reveals how
women can still pamper themselves and be glam…and not go broke
doing it!

::L. Denise Jackson, better known as The Sipping Sommelier here
@ SisterDivas, is beyond giddy this issue! During one of her
“Sipping Saturdays”, she tasted several wines that are PERFECT
for Spring, and in this issue, she dishes on all of them while taking
you on a journey to Chile, Oregon, Australia, Spain, and Italy!

::Microsoft or Apple? iPod or Zune? Which side of the fence do
you dwell? SD founder Tonya Howard jumps in and shares her
thoughts on the battle of the MP3s and wants to know YOUR
THOUGHTS, too!

::This issue of SisterDivas, we talk with author Keshia Dawn about
her novel BY THE GRACE OF GOD and one of the most important
facets of life: FAITH.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
5) RELATIONSHIPS

::Do you want grace and miracles in your life? If so, then you
definitely want to read Alicia M. H. Latimer’s review for Everyday
Grace, Everyday Miracle, by Lorna Owens!

::Author Kwyatt Storhm comes to SD to talk to us about relationships
and her novel, BITTERLY!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
