Advance Praise For
AFTER THE DANCE by Lori Johnson
"AFTER THE DANCE is a fast-paced delight with a plotline so intriguing and dialogue and characters so real, I had to keep reminding myself that I was reading fiction. It is an easy read with NO dull moments. I was hooked from the first page to the last. This is a five star new story from a five star new author!"
--Mary Monroe, New York Times bestselling author

"Surprisingly well-written. But I'm not sure if I want my church members reading this."
--Bobbie Mae Johnson, Lori's Mama and Cummings Street Missionary Baptist Church member

Okay, I'm tripping (LOL). Even though both quotes are indeed legit, only the first will appear on the 2nd edition of the book's cover. Anyway, I have a few additional equally nice quotes that I'll save for a later date.

Click on the link below if you'd like to check out the new web site.
If you feel like reading, the site also includes an excerpt of the work. I hope to add an Amazon "buy this book" tag to the site in the coming days.

Lori said...

Thanks. Hope you enjoy the excerpt.

Wait a minute . . . Is this Rachelle from Chicago?! My cousin Rachelle?! LOL. What you doing up in here? Just messing with you, girl. Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the site. Hope you enjoy the book. Tell Aunt C. and everbody else, I said "Hey!"

Thanks for the kind words of support Pjazzy. I hope it proves worth the wait (smile).

Lori ... my reading group has your book on the list for April. Should we order from you or a certain company? There are six of us. Please advise. Congrats.

Lori said...
