Is a Book with No Foul Language or Sex Worth Reading?

One author's new book challenges the heart, mind and even standards of some.
June 22, 2011 - PRLog -- Marian L. Thomas, one of’s best-selling rhythm and blues authors, has recently released her second novel, “My Father’s Colors.” It has found a home in the "Clean Fiction" genre, which as of today, doesn't really exist. The fiction work is a sequel to her first novel, “Color Me Jazzmyne,” which released in February 2009. Both of  the authors books carry a common trademark—no foul language or sex.

Without sex or foul language, many might wonder if it's worth reading? Thomas answers, "readers will have to make that determination for themselves, but I believe there is still an audience out there that wants and demands clean fiction type books, I hope that I deliver."

Thomas’s novels follow the journey of Naya Monà, a woman who struggles to find herself as she regretfully discovers her father’s past and searches for her daughter. Readers also become familiar with the individual trials of Naya’s husband, Chris; fame-entranced Misty; and Carl, a love-afflicted character introduced in the second book.

Thomas said her books are inspired by real-life situations of abuse, relationships, friendships and struggles that many women suffer. “My books give readers the chance to connect with a character who is a part of every woman in so many ways rather than focus on sex and even foul language.”

“Color My Jazzmyne” reached the No. 1 position on’s rhythm and blues best-sellers list and was recognized by Sankofa Literary Society Review as one of the top 100 books. It also earned a nomination for the “2010 Book of the Year” by the African Americans on the Move Book Club, or the AAMBC.

Published in paperback and hardcover by L.B. Publishing, “My Father’s Colors” will be sold at,, and will be available for the Amazon Kindle, Borders Kobo, iTunes iBooks and Barnes and Noble Nook electronic books.
