From a guys perspective. The cover is off the chain but its beauty is only a fraction compared to the contents. Great job my sister.

Poetry is of deep thought with much emotions.
You have expressed yourself with your poetry.
I am very proud of my baby girl.

As you know I too write poetry but unlike you I am more of
a traditional writer.

Continue your writings and let no one discourage you.

Daddy will always be in your corner.

Loving you Baby

Spiritual, seductive, inspirational, motivational, informative, are just a few of the many words I could use to describe this work of art. I've been "nibbling" on this feast of goodnes for months and savouring its soulful and sensual flavor. Now that it's over, I'm ready to do it all again. :-)

God has given you a rare gift, Erika. I thank Him for sharing it and you with the rest of us.

Stay Blessed!

Wow! What an amazing book of poetry. Your words have definitely touched my life.
I was in a very bad relationship, struggling and not really knowing what to do next. A friend lent me their copy of your book and said it was really uplifting. I am happy to say that I have moved beyond that relationship and am working my way through the healing process by your words.

I wish all the success in the world with this book and all of your future work.

Ms. Erika (cause I'm too scared to call you boo)

Your work is surpassed only by your beauty. You are a brilliant writer and those Tight Fitting Blue Jeans makes me melt. I have watched you grow over the years and your delivery on stage is mesmerizing. Continue to grow my sister. You are a role model for our young black queens. I hope my daughter grows up to be 1/2 the woman you are.
