Michelle Buckley, the author of Bulletproof Soul,is releasing her second novel, Trippin' through Carl Weber's Urban Books in July 2006.
To celebrate the release of the book, Buckley is sponsoring two exciting contests. Said Buckley, "We all have both good and bad traveling memories. Traveling is something we can all relate to in the summer, and I really wanted to create some fun around the introduction of my latest novel by encouraging folks to share the best and worst of their travel tales".
Buckley would like to encourage everyone to join in on the fun and take the U Trippin' Challenge.

About the Book:
From skiing in the mountains to a nude beach vacation ... and trips everywhere in between, an urban travel club cuts loose, gets buck wild and vows to enjoy the best life has to offer. But all hell breaks loose following a trip to Las Vegas (Sin City) where envy, lust, lies, betrayal, greed and raw emotions reach a feverish pitch. For this group, their secrets are as deep and twisted as the road is long — which ain’t a good thing, since there is a stalker, blackmailer and serial killer among them. And when travel club members start dying off — everyone starts questioning their allegiances, their safety and their sanity!
About the Author:
Trippin’ is Buckley's second novel. Both this book and her first, Bulletproof Soul, were released by Carl Weber’s Urban Books. As a result of her debut writing effort, Black Issues Book Review Magazine included Buckley in the July/August 2005 issue as an up and coming African American author — a “fresh breeze.” And during the summer of 2005, her debut, Bulletproof Soul, was selected as a Blackexpressions.com “Editor’s Pick” and “Summer Favorite.” Prior to her fiction writing, Buckley did freelance writing for publications like Black Enterprise Magazine and the Kansas City Business Journal. Additionally, she was included in the #1 Essence bestseller, Souls of My Sisters (Kensington, 2000).
Author available anytime for interviews.
