My Teaser for this week is from

Black Beauty

Everleaf #0.5

by Constance Burris




Genre: Horror / Dark Fantasy / Series

 My teaser from7 % in the eBook.

“I’m going crazy,” she thought. This time she did laugh, and the snakes, which were the same rusty brown color as her dreads, returned her smile.

I had no idea what this book was about. I just couldn’t resist that title and cover. It takes right off and gets dark fast. Having fun!


Read on if you want to know more.


At Vista Apartment Complex, life drastically changes for a few of its residents when they decide to do business with Crazy Jade—the supposed voodoo witch that can grant your wish, for a price.

Shemeya wants the confidence to stand up against the girls bullying her at school, but she soon has to choose between keeping her dreadlocs or living a normal life. After catching her boyfriend cheating, Latreece just wants to have the same curves as all the other girls. Ashley will do whatever she can to have “White Girl Flow”, but takes her pursuit too far when she steals from Crazy Jade.

Everyone who comes into contact with Crazy Jade soon learns the true price of her magic—and how horribly wrong it can go.

BLACK BEAUTY takes the reader on a journey through the point of view of five residents of Vista Apartment Complex, and how each of their horrors crash together in ways they could never have expected.



How about you? Got a tease? Tell me!

    sherry @ fundinmental My TT

  3. sjhigbee says:

    Yes… I was wondering if you were reading the Anna Sewell version:). This one sounds intriguing though, Laura. My TT this week is a food-based cosy mystery set in space…

  4. I also thought of the horse book when I first saw the title…LOL. But definitely not that kind of black beauty. Sounds fascinating and a little scary. Here’s mine: “THE SECRETS SHE KEEPS”

    You do seem to enjoy the dark books. Sounds really intriguing and spooky. Thanks for stopping by at my link: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1yE earlier today. Enjoy!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      That’s me. Funny that I also love so many other genres, including children’s books and cozies.

  6. Whitney says:

    Based on the title I thought this was going to be the classic children’s book so that in itself teased me. The teaser for this title really has me curious, why is she going crazy?

  7. Karen says:

    When I saw your teaser was from BLACK BEAUTY, I thought it was the horse story!

  8. Yvo says:

    When I first saw the title I thought it was the one with the story about the horse haha. Definitely would have been in for a surprise… 😉 I like the sound of the teaser though; I hope you will enjoy it!

  9. A POC author and a POC main character is fabulous. :)

  10. ljennison says:

    Thought it was going to be the horse book. Sounds really interesting. Thanks for sharing it.

  11. Kym Thorpe says:

    Don’t think this one would be for me, but it does sound interesting – great teaser!

  12. Greg Hill says:

    I thought the horse book too lol when I saw this on Bloglovin. Sounds dark and fun though- love the teaser. Smiling snakes?? Yikes. :)

  13. I thought of horses too when I saw the title.. nope! Definitely not horses, but sounds pretty good anyway. :) Thank you for sharing & thank you for visiting my blog! :-)

  14. A wish at a price – reminds me of Ursula’s (shoddy) dealings in The Little Mermaid.

  15. Not the book I thought it was going to be.

  16. Drangonfly says:

    Yup I agree that cover and that title are something. and.. snakes! when people are compared to snakes there must be good things coming 😀
