NOIRE 3-BOOK DEAL AT BALLANTINE

Noire, “the queen of urban erotica,” who’s been called the Henry Miller and Charles Dickens of street lit, has signed a significant 3-book deal with Ballantine (Melody Guy, Jane von Mehren, Gina Centrello) for her next two novels (Hitting the Bricks and a presently untitled one) + the first volume in her erotic quickie series, From the Streets to the Sheets: Urban Erotic Quickies. Noire’s bestselling urban erotic tales include G Spot, Candy Licker, and Thugalicious (all from Ballantine). Her lit manager/producer Ken Atchity of AEI confirms that the film based on Bricks, directed by Brian T. Jaynes and starring Texas Battle, Ness Bautista, and Alexandra Merejo is “in the can,” and in submission to festivals. Noire’s last two novels, Hood and Thong on Fire, were published by Atria.
