J is the quintessential woman of today. Smart. Sexy. Stylish. Sophisticated. She knows what she wants, how she wants it, and how to get it. She has a career she loves as a journalist, a home in her name, and men--the one constant in her life that's never the same.

But one smoldering, late spring evening in Washington, DC, her life takes a very unexpected turn when she sets out to cover the opening of a popular art gallery for Face Magazine and awakens in the bed of the gallery owner. Yes, he is beside her. and no, she doesn't get her story before she leaves.

Normally, putting such mishaps out of her mind and moving on is easy. But this time is different. this guy is different. and while she's left asking herself how come she just can't get him out of her mind, you'll be left asking yourself: Have women become the new men?

Tenth Letter explores this fascinating dynamic and the role it plays in the clashing of the sexes by introducing you to two people who share an intense desire to be with each other despite the barrage of issues hindering any real chance at success. Hers-she's that alpha male persona: she's selfish, rather self-centered, arrogant, and doesn't know the first thing about how to love another person. And his big issue? Well... he picks the wrong women.

Tenth Letter is a provocative debut novel that will anchor many of your debates about men, women,
relationships, and the reality of starting over.

About the Author

Kayona Ebony Brown grew up in Washington, DC, the scenic foundation for her debut novel, Tenth Letter. A natural born polymath, Kayona embraces her gifts as both an artist and a businesswoman.

Invigorated by the complexities and nuances of the human experience, Kayona conceived Tenth Letter as a junior in high school and spent years developing the characters constructing their story.

"I just like creating characters who feel and think and react and grow, and telling stories that intrigue and move and motivate audiences," Kayona says.

When she decided to dive into her dream as an artistic entrepreneur, she established Brown'sTone to oversee her many entertainment ventures including record, TV, film, and book publishing divisions.

Tenth Letter was the first product of the DC-based company and she plans to add to it with the prequel, Of Music & Men, a multimedia project that includes a scripted television show.

"My priority right now is making sure that Tenth Letter, the novel, reaches everyone who needs its messages. [Then] I want to bring this vision to the big and small screens, so you can see it from every side, as it was intended. I think these stories is something we as women really need."
