Whats up fam. I just wanted to let yall know that my new book, The Perceptionist, is coming out next month. I’m real excited because this is my debut novel, and I wrote this story specifically for “us.”
If you haven’t heard me discuss the book yet, The Perceptionist is about the residents of a historic black community who find themselves in dire straits, until encountering a mysterious woman named Asè with a gift for seeing what others miss. As she makes her way around the legendary town, Asè offers simple ancestral wisdom that breathes new life into the hearts of many, creating a rippled effect throughout the community.
Although it’s fiction, I wrote The Perceptionist as a self-help narrative, similar to the bible or the Alchemist, as a way of providing inspiration and guidance for us to uplift ourselves and our communities. So, each chapter tackles a different obstacle with simple empowering solutions that are all hidden in plain sight.
I first came up with the idea for this book in spring 2019. It started off as a short story that I was going to use as the basis for a TV-series I was creating. But as I continued to write and develop the narrative, it turned into a full novel. And I’m glad it did.
I am proud of this work and I can’t wait for you to read it. So, if you’re into afrocentric stories or self-help books, then check out The Perceptionist.
You can pre-order it now in both print and ebook or wait until it releases on December 8th.
Thanks in advance. Peace & Love!
