Beverly Jenkins brings erotic fiction to Book Beat

Posted By on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 11:12 AM

Beverly Jenkins, Detroit’s own author of “bodice ripper” romantic fiction, will be signing books at Book Beat in Oak Park this Saturday, October 26.

You may remember this review that we wrote of her latest book, Destiny’s Surrender, in which we pointed out that she uses the glorious term “carnal dallying.”

According to a Book Beat statement, “Beverly Jenkins is the nation's premier writer of African American historical romance fiction and specializes in 19th century African American life. She has 30 published novels to date, including: Bring on the Blessings, A Wish and A Prayer, Night Song, Indigo, A Second Helping, Jewel, Something Old and Something New, Vivid, andMidnight, among many others. She has received numerous awards, including: five Waldenbooks/Borders Group Best Sellers Awards; two Career Achievement Awards from Romantic Times Magazine; a Golden Pen Award from the Black Writer's Guild, and in 1999 was named one of the Top Fifty Favorite African-American writers of the 20th Century by AABLC, the nation's largest on-line African-American book club. She has also been featured in many national publications, including the Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, Dallas Morning News and Vibe Magazine. She has lectured and given talks at such prestigious universities as Oberlin University, the University of Illinois, and Princeton. She speaks widely on both romance and 19th century African-American history.”
