Black History Month Giveaway Hop


February is Black History Month, what better way to commemorate the occasion than books?  Reflections of a Bookaholic & Mocha Girls Read are graciously hosting the Black History Month Giveaway Hop and they've invited their bloggy buddies to join in the fun! 

Walter Mosley is by far one of my favorite black authors. Who didn't love Devil in a Blue Dress? I mean I loved Easy Rawlins long before Denzel Washington stepped in his shoes (although he filled them well). Walter Mosley develops multi-dimensional characters like nobody else; complex, vulnerable, crafty, and resilient. For these reasons (and a gazillion more I can think of), I have selected Walter Mosley as the spotlight of my giveaway.

Two lucky winners will receive their choice of one of the following books:

Watts is smoldering in ruins-and the cops are on Easy Rawlins's doorstep. Easy expects the worst, as usual. But, incredibly, they're asking for his help. A redheaded woman known as Little Scarlet had sheltered a man during the riots. Witnesses later saw him fleeing her building; not long after, Little Scarlet was found viciously murdered. Now, with his old friend Mouse at his side, Easy follows the case's single clue across Los Angeles. The missing man is the key, but he's only the beginning. Hidden in the heart of the city is a killer whose red-hot rage is as fierce as the fires that rocked L.A.


The "New York Times" bestselling author of "Blue Light" returns to the realm of science fiction. Errol is awakened by a strange prank caller claiming to be his father, who has been dead for several years. Curious, and not a little unnerved, Errol sneaks into the graveyard where his father is buried. What he finds will change his life forever.


When Cordell Carmel catches his longtime girlfriend with another man, the act that he witnesses seems to dissolve all the boundaries he knows. In that instant, the calm existence of this middle-aged New York City man becomes something unrecognizable: he wants revenge, but also something more. Killing Johnny Fry is the story of Cordell's dark, funny, soulful, and outrageously explicit sexual odyssey in search of a new way of life. His guide is a mysterious woman named Sisypha, who leads him deep into the erotic heart of the city.

Bookshop owner Paris Minton is minding his own business when a brief encounter with a beautiful stranger gets him beaten, shot at, robbed, and then burned out of store and home. Paris needs help but his secret weapon-brave, reckless WWII hero Fearless Jones-is in jail. Vowing to dish out some heavy justice, Paris plots to get Jones back on the street. But when these two men come together, they'll find themselves trapped in a bewildering vortex of sex, money, and murder-and a dicey endgame that's littered with dangerous players...

Walter Mosley was just here in DC. I didn't make it to his event because he's on and off my radar. My dad was telling me that he just read his first Mosley book and is planning to read another. I may have to start paying more attention to this author
