Tamika Newhouse

"Never be intimidated by others who share the same dream.....there's room for all of us to be successful."



From teen mom to CEO by the age of twenty, Tamika Newhouse is an author, national bestseller, and an eight-time winner of the African American Literary Awards. Debuting her first novel in 2009, she landed a major publishing contract without an agent and went on to become the CEO of Delphine Publications.

Tamika credits her success to embracing all of whom she is, consistently paying it forward, and forgiving herself for falling into life's pitfalls such as haters and fuckboys. Her podcast, Traces of Mika, details her triumphs, failures, and detours on her way to the top of the literary industry.

To date, she has published nearly 200 titles, launched the careers of hundreds of writers, and produces the only entertainment award show for writers, called the AAMBC Literary Awards. In 2019, she also served as co-producer and writer on the bio-pic for legendary Hip-Hop group 8 Ball & MJG film, Comin Out Hard.



Imagine meeting Mr. Right at the wrong time.

Throwing herself into her career, Dani settles for a passionless relationship with Jacob. Hardcore and shielded on the surface, passion and love are the last things on Dani's mind. Until one day, a conversation with a friendly stranger gives her that good ole feeling back and ready to risk it all. 

A night of passion triggers something Dani hasn't felt in a long time. But do you trust a feeling with the one you just met, or do you trust your history with the one that you're with?

In this romantic but sexy comedy, discover a story so hilariously relatable that you have to ask yourself, what if the person that you're supposed to be with is already here?
