Are you a pig or a pearl? Author T’ana Phelice releases new women’s empowerment book

T'ana Pigs and PearlsWritten by Naomi K. Bonman

RIALTO, CA- Women go through so much in life, especially our young Black women. With recent movies, such as For Colored Girls, women are now feeling the urge and need to step out of their comfort zones and confront their fears in telling their stories in a means to help other women. This is the premise of why T’ana Phelice started writing The Jaded Diamond series.

Phelice’s second book, Pigs & Pearls under the Jaded Diamonds collection explores the lives, trials and tribulations of five women: Veronica, Precious, Nicki, Tia, and Samantha. They each  are used to beauty and scandalous behavior getting them ahead, but God has other things in mind. Twisted affairs leave a couple of the ladies praying for redemption, while true love leaves one facing tragedy, and another with what she has finally become worthy of. Each of them are at a crossroads that will test their faith, or restore the strength that they didn’t know they had. Some will make reality of their dreams, while others refuse to face reality all together.

Pigs & Pearls is definitely one that will have you laughing, crying, screaming, and chatting it up with your closet girlfriends as you flip through pages and recognizing characters and traits that resemble your own life. In a world where women are bombarded by the false misconceptions of what they should be through media and TV, this book is needed to uplift and give our women encouragement to heal their lives and the lives of those around them.

The book is now available for pre-order via tanaphelice.com and will launch January 2016. There will be a special release celebration and book signing on Saturday, January 30 at Raquel’s Jazz Lounge in Rialto. Raquel’s is located at 134 S. Riverside Avenue, Rialto, CA 92376.

Please RSVP today and pre-order the book for $20. You will be able to have your book signed at the event. RSVPs can be made at www.tanaphelice.com.
