The Author Yani

The author Yani was born and raised in the North Philly and Germantown sections of Philadelphia in 1984. Writing isn't just what she does, it's who she is and she began when she was barely old enough to attend kindergarten. Starting with short stories  based on her version of her favorite cartoon, Tom & Jerry, Yani would then move on to giving speeches at her school assemblies. Yani followed up with writing poems that would later grant her an invitation to the tri-state area's number one hip-hop and R&B radio station, Power 99 FM when she was only 16-years-old. After that, Yani began performing at numerous open mic nights in Philadelphia. She wrote her first novel, A Thug's Redemption when she was 15-years-old and self-published it under her own publishing company, Anitbeet Productions twelve years later. After which, she was featured in Yo! Raps magazine, and landed on the Amazon's Best Seller's list not only for her first novel, but for each of her novels afterwards, including her book of short horror stories, Terrors From Beyond. She currently has eight titles under her belt and recently signed her first author, LeRoy Payton. For book signings, appearances or speaking engagements, contact her at contact@theauthoryani.com

Blog post
So I’m sure some of you read the title of this blog post and you’re like, “What does she mean by true self-publishing?” Last year, before I released Love’s Deadly Masquerade, I began looking into Amazon’s KDP Select program. I was enrolled in it back when I first released A Thug’s Redemption in 2012 but did not like the idea of my book only being available through Kindle as a stipulation. There are quite a few readers out there who legit don’t fuck with Amazon Kindle on any level. So to make....

Woot Woot! I just finished my 8th novel! Yaaaaasssss! I am so psyched! I was worried that I was developing writer’s block and anybody who knows me knows for sure that writer’s block for me is a fate worst than death. I’m so serious.  But it wasn’t writer’s block. I just have so much going on right now, I’ve been going through so much for the last four years I’m just patiently waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel. It can’t rain all the time, right? But that’s another blog entry

I keep saying that I am going to update this blog more frequently, but I just can’t seem to find the time. It’s been six months since the last time I wrote a blog post and boy and have I been busy. I’ve been writing two books- Licked Into Submission and Hoop Dreams Deflated. I also started writing the screen play to A Thug’s Redemption and I must say, it is turning out to be much better than the actual book. That’s always been my thing about turning books into movies; it should either be like
