Shai August is a country girl with a big imagination, more than a touch of wanderlust and a never-ending desire to live in both an RV traveling the world and a library. Her love language is words of affirmations followed by books, bacon and bourbon. She’s a born and bred Louisiana native, but is currently doing an impression of a yellow rose of Texas. She is fluent in English, sarcasm and memes. Her goal is to write fast paced; character driven paranormal fiction for women of color. She’s found all over the internet and social media as @ShaiAugust (Facebook,Instagram, Pinterest (author assumes no responsibility for your falling into her Pinterest board traps), Twitter,etc.) feel free to follow and start any kind of conversation with her.

Coming Up Really Short of My Goals

2022 was going to be the year!

I had high hopes, this was going to be not just a good year but MY year. The year I’d been planning on, striving for, and hoping for since…. I can’t even tell you.

I was convinced I would break out, become a reader favorite. Break through and double or triple my social media following. Finally get my energy levels and emotional levels together so that I could exercis

Katherine Dunham
“I used to want the words "She tried" on my tombstone. Now I want "She did it."




Katherine Dunham

Patricia Briggs
“Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.”
Patricia Briggs, Iron Kissed

James Baldwin
“People don't have any mercy. They tear you limb from limb, in the name of love. Then, when you're dead, when they've killed you by what they made you go through, they say you didn't have any character. They weep big, bitter tears - not for you. For themselves, because they've lost their toy.”
James Baldwin, Another Country

Vikram Seth
“But I too hate long books: the better, the worse. If they're bad they merely make me pant with the effort of holding them up for a few minutes. But if they're good, I turn into a social moron for days, refusing to go out of my room, scowling and growling at interruptions, ignoring weddings and funerals, and making enemies out of friends. I still bear the scars of Middlemarch.”
Vikram Seth, A Suitable Boy

Seneca
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
Seneca
