A young man dies of AIDS and leaves behind a mysterious videotape for his family that exposes his tormented life of secrets and guilt in a confession from beyond the grave.

DeMarco Reid left a videotape for his family to play during his funeral, but his family doesn't realize they are in for the shock of their lives. In it, DeMarco appears in a pre-recorded message to admit the many secrets that tore his life apart, including why his wife committed suicide, how he contracted HIV, his connection to a murder, and ultimately, his quest for meaning in life.

But there are two sides to every story. Is DeMarco's tell-all actually true, or are there even more shocking secrets threatening to shake this family to its foundations?

With HIV an ever-increasing threat in the African-American community, this story approaches the topic with both refreshing candor and compassion. Confessions of a Lonely Soul reminds readers of the insidious danger of keeping secrets, and the cost of living a double-life to deceive those you love the most. In the end, are any secrets worth dying to keep?

In sex.lies.murder.fame., Lolita Files delivers a sizzling satire set against the affluence and sensuality of the literary and music worlds that explores the outrageous lengths to which three devout fame-chasers will go to seek their fortune.

Fame is a b*#%$. And when boy meets b*#%$, nothing can keep the two of them apart. Penn Hamilton is young, brilliant, beautiful, and ready to take on the world and claim his rightful place in the midst of celebrity. As a Writer. Rapper. Model. God. Unfortunately, the world is not quite ready for him. When Penn writes what he believes to be the "Great American Literary Blockbuster," he's rebuffed at every turn. Faced with ridicule, rejection, and mounting resentment, he decides to fight back using his assets -- rock-star looks, genius IQ, and killer charm.

Beryl Unger is a rising star in the publishing world, editor to literati and glitterati alike. Single, plain, obsessive, a bit on the dreamy side, she's a train wreck waiting to happen, and easy prey for a beautiful man with a seductive plan. When Penn meets Beryl, sparks fly. And sparks fly even higher when he meets the breathtaking superstar romance author Sharlyn Tate.

Two women, one man. A man with no boundaries, who will stop short at nothing -- even brutal, vicious murder -- to fulfill his desperate ambition. Lolita Files is the author of the bestselling Child of God, which has been optioned as a feature film by Kanye West. Files has a degree in broadcast journalism and lives outside of Los Angeles, where she is currently developing projects for television and film.
