Romance/Suspense Author, The Blakk Dahlia Reveals Book Cover for Third Release, “Devastation or Destiny???”


(New York, NY | February 28, 2019) – With previous releases, “Rushing to Distraction”, and “Wrong Vengeance”, The Blakk Dahlia tapped into the Foolish and Toxic Hearts (respectively). The Heartbreak Diaries Book Series revolves around the types of “hearts” characters display in finding and dealing with love. Keeping the momentum of the Heartbreak Diaries, and the spirit of describing the logic behind these hearts, The Blakk Dahlia reveals the book cover to the upcoming release, “Devastation or Destiny???”.

Devastation or Destiny??? Book by The Blakk Dahlia

On her recent radio interview with The Author’s Corner, The Blakk Dahlia spoke on the inspiration of the book series, “I just wanted to open up a different type of dialog between men and women about how we enter relationships. Its something different, vulnerable, and was very therapeutic [during the writing process]…”

The third diary entry “Devastation or Destiny???” (The Settled Heart), will hit major book retailers this Spring. The book cover displays a beautiful marriage awaiting for the next chapter of life, however in opening the pages, the characters are faced with the question, “Is this what I really want?”.

This book describes a fear I’ve had for years. ‘What if my lifestyle and love life doesn’t agree? Which do I choose?’ In this story, I answer my own fears by facing them and showing others who have had the same thoughts, that life ALWAYS works out to your benefit. – The Blakk Dahlia.

“Devastation or Destiny???” is a romantic love story gone wrong. The novella goes into detail of the choices made to live a desired life, versus what life gives throughout the journey. When the romance and lifestyle doesn’t align, what should one choose? Love or the destiny that is craved? And when a choice isn’t made, does the universe step in and decide?

About “Devastation or Destiny???”
The Settled Heart…Choose the love of your life, OR the life that your love?
Tanya found her happy ending, but it wasn’t the one she wrote. A lover of adventure and exploration found the heart of a hard-working traditional man. Kenneth is unwilling to take on her dreams, however he gives the greatest love with no reservations.  As their wedding day approaches, she finds herself thinking of what could have been. Did I give up on what I REALLY wanted too soon? 

Fearing that she’ll miss out on a chance of true love, Tanya gives in.  But, the deep yearnings never end. The universe hears the inner cries of the life she wanted, as she prepares to take on a new life with Kenneth. Life eventually gives her want she truly wants but with a cost…Devastation!

Thrown into dismay, Tanya finds herself starting over. Will the devastation be worth it? Or should she have been grateful for the “once in a lifetime love”?

BRASHION! EXCLUSIVE | Jason C. Peters Fashion Voice for Change

Exclusive Interview with Celebrity Fashion Designer Jason C. Peters on His Latest Atlanta Fashion Presentation for the PaperDoll Collection

PaperDoll Collection by Jason C Peters

We’ve been following fashion designer, Jason C Peters, on his fashion tour for the PaperDoll Collection. Making BOLD fashion statements with unique designs, Peters is showing the industry and society as a whole, that he’s not stopping until the message are loud and clear. Creating a movement of change through his work is a priority with the PaperDoll Collection. With his most recent stop in Atlanta, GA, Peters shined a huge light on issues, views, and matters that are dear to his heart.

The event was held at Iridium ATL. Attendees enjoyed cocktails, gift bags for VIP guests and the exclusive look at Peters’ collection. Vendors/sponsors for the event included: Zen Paradise Spa, Champs Charms, Iridium ATL, U.G.L.Y (U GOTTA LOVE YOURSELF), and The Hair Palace.

The messages delivered in the recent show included, adoption, equality in sports leagues, identity, as well as the heinous task of keeping immigrant children in cages; separated from their families. Continuing to be the VOICE through fashion is Peters’ way of putting the voice into action for change!


Check out his exclusive interview with BRASH!

Jason C Peters PaperDoll CollectionB!: This time around, you touched on how adoption saves lives. What inspired this message?
The subject of adoption is very important to me being an adopted child. My grandparents adopted myself as well as my 2 older brothers. There are “invisible children” which inspired me to create the “adopt kids save lives” piece. Invisible children are those who have been in the foster care system their entire lives and are never adopted; once they turn 18 years old they are generally removed from the foster care system and left to fend for themselves which is extremely heart breaking. My brothers, as well as myself, were extremely lucky to have been adopted and raised by such amazing grandparents; John Manuel Peters & Dolores Mae Peters.

B!: The message of Equality was highly present, even in sports. What is your take on what needs to be done to show equality within these professional sports leagues?
JCP: In terms of sports leagues, I feel that equality is pretty far fetched. All athletes no matter which sport they play are human beings and individuals with the ability to display their own expressions of personal opinions in whatever capacity they choose to. They have the god given right to express themselves. Isn’t this America? Land of the free? 5th Amendment freed of speech? OR AmeriKKKa land of Koruption, Killing and Kruelity? Athletes are very important in this multi-billion dollar sports franchise. I was raised playing just about every sport imaginable. Athletes work hard are put on strict diets hours and hours of training intense practices etc, all so YOU can get enjoyment. So if you are wanting them to WIN FOR YOU, then they should be able to take a knee, speak their mind and not be put into a bubble like caged animals. Trump administration needs to stop trying to control a person’s rights and everyone should receive equality no matter what!

Jason C Peters PaperDoll Collection

B!: Not only are the designs compelling, your twist on the models hair/make up brings these looks to life. What inspired this creative twist?
JCP: I always come up with each hair and makeup look for every show! The looks for this show were inspired by being different and not trying to fit into a “mold” of what’s “normal.” Rainbows have a hugely impactful meaning in the world and that is where I also got inspired from.

B!: The identity design stood out, not only with the message but with the design. What is your take on shedding light on this issue?
JCP: The dress symbolized a “broken identity” theme; hearts and flowers on one side with lightning and rain on the other with the word “identity” broken down and overlapped in the middle. In today’s society having an identity is looked down upon because so many things we are exposed to try and make us conform. Conforming is LAME and having your own identity is COOL.

Jason C Peters PaperDoll Collection

B!: With each show, how do you ensure that you’re staying consistent as well as creating a new experience for each showcase?
JCP: When I first launched the tour April 29th 2018, I didn’t realize the huge impact that it would have! I am dedicated to bringing so many real issues to life and will continue to that with every show that I do. I have soooo much more in store! Just buckle up because the ride is about to get intense!!!!
