Diversify Us

Purchase on Amazon.com
My fourteenth book, Diversify Us, was released on 11/5/16. The book is about Alese Morrison, who is a fifth grade student at George Washington Carver Elementary School in Newark, New Jersey. Alese and her fellow classmates were tasked with a very tedious homework assignment to get their minds going. Some of them were up for the challenge, while the others relished in procrastinating. 

This homework assignment would open up discussions for debate, create open dialogue, and show various perspectives on life. Diversify Us allows youth to think and talk about diversity in various environments. It allows them to look at it at school, home, work, and in the communities where they reside. Diversity is a very big topic and is sometimes, which people narrow to one of two things. The objective of this book is to broaden the views of diversity and what it means to other people. 

This book will give youth the opportunity to look at diversity in genders, race, socioeconomic status, states, and much more.

13 Authored Books and Counting...

October 12, 2016 will mark the day that my 13th book will be released and available for purchase. I am ecstatic to say that all of my books have been published in less than seven years. I published my very first book, Dead Wrong, in 2010. After that, I continued to publish at least 1-2 books a year. Although in 2013, I failed to release new books, I made up for it in 2014 and 2015. My ultimate plan is to continue to publish other projects, which I have started and yet to be released, which includes about five other projects. In 2017, I will release another children's book and a book on diversity. Below, will see all of my current books and information about each. 

Dead Wrong- Romantic Thriller
Dead Wrong is about a young woman name Tasha Marie Smith. Tasha's life takes a 180 degree turn down the wrong direction because of a man named Jacob. Jacob was everything she yearned for; educated, well-groomed, confident, financially set, didn't have any kids, and he was single. What more did she need? He was everything she thought she needed. He exemplified success and she wouldn't stop until she achieved success also. What she didn't know was that sometimes success comes with a high price and his price was everlasting. 

Poetic Outlets- Poetry
Poetic Outlets is a book of poetry that discusses depression, society, love, and attributes of a woman. Melica Niccole shows her ability in writing that readers will easily relate to many of her poems or they have a relational tie to someone that can. It can honestly be said that Poetic Outlets has a bit of everything in it that draws you deeper and deeper into the author's thought process. Witness Melica Niccole's transition as a writer, which is seen from the beginning to the end of the book.

My Poetic Soul Unleashed- Poetry

My Poetic Soul Unleashed is Melica Niccole’s second book of poetry. Melica felt that it was time that she unleashed her soul in the form of poetic words and allow people to witness her talented aura on paper. So many times in life, people tend to see the things that are on the surface without digging beneath the exterior and revealing a diamond in the rough. It’s time to stop recovering items from the surface and start digging for more than the obvious.

The Journey to the truth is about searching for the truth by questioning common things, researching information, standing alone, formulating your own thoughts, and refraining from the common activity of "group think." It's time to free your minds and allow truth to have a constant resting place to call home.

The New Face of Disabilities- Self Help
The face of those with a disability is ever changing, making it more and more challenging to determine who has a disability and who does not. Wouldn't it be a perfect world if everyone was equipped with the right tools to assist those with a disability? Well, why not try to make it an almost perfect world? Melica Niccole provides you with effective strategies in with individuals with disabilities.

I Miss You- Poem

I miss you 
And I really don't even know you 
My spirit wants to vibe 
And flow with you 
Free style together 
And go toe to toe with you 
Travel to a distant land 
And cuddle with you 
I just want to hold you 
Our bodies come together 
And create a mold of you
Singing Back to life 
Soul II Soul with you 
Bump and Grind 
R. Kelly with you 
Ain't no mountain high 
Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell with you 
I want to fly with you 
Giggle and act shy with you 
Laugh a thousand laughs with you 
Sit on the porch and.... reminisce 
But, I guess I'm infatuated 
Vastly gaited 
Emotions precipitated 
So let me slow it down and say... 
How's your day... 
You good... 
Good bye

California Dreaming

For a while now, I have been California Dreaming as if I was a backup singer in Mamas And The Papas famous song "California Dreaming." The funny part was that I had never visited California, but felt in my heart I knew how it would be. Last week, I had the opportunity to visit an old college roomie in LA with two other college buddies.

This experience was amazing. Our trip was very eventful from spending time on the beach taking selfies, getting stuck in rush hour, going to the California African-American Museum, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Staples Center, Hollywood, Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Grove, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Warner Brothers Studios, and then back to Jersey.

Check out what we did below:

Still Under Construction

As I got back into my workout regimen today, I was in my feelings about all the things that had taken place lately. I needed an outlet, so I decided to write this poem.
Shattered windows. Shattered dreams. Ulterior motives it seems. Pieces of him. Pieces see of me. It’s just too bad the blind are the first to . Legacies undone. A man gone before the sun. Set on his life. Fatherless kids gloom amongst the ranks. Souls torn for they have witnessed the Shawshank before the redemption. It’s sad because some may never get this. The past remain the present with heavily coated makeup. Covering up all the blemishes. Showing the beautiful exterior when it the interior that is “Still under construction.” Keep out and skull bones signs show there is imminent danger, but how can one know when the package has been adorned to protect?
