About the Author: Raynesha Pittman

About the Author: Raynesha Pittman grew up as one of L.A's many troubled youth which led her into serving four years around Los Angeles juvenile corrections centers, placements, and camps. She first recognized her love for writing while incarcerated. Her first manuscript was written to her mother in hopes of giving her insight to what Raynesha was going through as a teen but never published. One positive Raynesha had during her troubled years was book smarts, her ticket out of the hands of correctional facilities. She was an honors student since kindergarten, certified gifted in the third grade, and was sent to Woodland hills, CA for a more challenging education, yet she had to be placed in Honors classes there too. Her temper and fighting had her removed from the enriched schools but that didn't stop her. She crossed the stage as the valedictorian of her high school a month after turning 16 years old, her graduation credits were meet at 15 and she received acceptance letters to five out-of-state private institutions of higher education which she later declined offers to due to still being on probation until 18 years of age and not being able to leave the state. California State University at Los Angeles and Northridge accepted her last minute application with open arms. While attending school, she discovered she was pregnant and decided to put her role as a mother first. After carrying her second child she moved to TN for a new start with her sons and received her PTCB national certification in July 2010 after 3 1/2 years of being a licensed Pharmacy technician. It was while working in a pharmacy she met Michael Antonio of Payne Publishing, Inc., who encouraged her to write a book. She took his opinion to heart and wrote her debut novel "Kismet". Raynesha currently lives in TN with her, “Roq” and six children.

Professionally: Raynesha Pittman is the CEO, Founder and an author at Conglomerate Ink, an Urban Literature publishing company established November 2010 to help authors expose and share their talents of storytelling while developing discipline in their craft. In May 2011 Raynesha was offered the opportunity to help promote literacy nationwide by childhood friend, author and now publisher Terry L. Wroten by joining the West Coast Authors Movement also known as W-CAM where Raynesha not only fills the position of an author on the team but is also over website design and management and acts as W-CAM's Southern liaison due to her living in the South. Her greatest literary achievement came in January 2014 when she was signed to Write2Eat Concepts publications under the legendary K'wan Foye. From there possibilities became endless. Raynesha currently has two books in stores under Kensington/Urban Books, another due to release in March 2017 under Kensington/ Urban Renaissance and Penguin/Random House and one title in stores under her own publishing company. She says, “…this is only the beginning.”

Accomplishments: Raynesha was nominated in the Hip Hop of the Ville awards for best Indie author of the year in January 2012 and was also nominated in the Prodigy Publishing Group's Second Annual Urban Literary Awards for most likely to succeed debut author of the year in February 2012. In 2015 Raynesha was nominated for Journalist of the year in the Southern Entertainment Awards.

It s a dog eat dog world. Especially, when all the dogs involved are hungry! For a sheltered mama s boy like Demarcus, everything was all roses until a life changing experience showed him that every rose has thorns. After a well-orchestrated set up, Demarcus' plans to go to college are derailed by a trip to state prison. It is while in the belly of the beast, that the mama's boy has to make the choice between being a man, or being a victim. Upon his release, Demarcus tries to get his life back on track, but his felony conviction causes door after door to be slammed in his face. Going to college is no longer an option, and flipping burgers is not in his plans. With little other choice, Demarcus applies the lessons learned in prison and takes it to the streets. He gets caught up in the game of selling heroin, known on the streets as Dog Food. When all hell breaks loose between the major dealers, in Memphis, over the city s heroin distribution, Demarcus finds himself on the losing side of a bloody drug war. As he prepares for the show down with his opposition, he begins to uncover truths about his past, including what happened that fateful night of his arrest. To add insult to injury, when he finally stands face to face with his enemy, he discovers that the face is a familiar one. They say that blood is thicker than water, but when it comes to cash, sometimes even those closest to you will try to do you in.
