Feeling More Established As An Author, and Publishing Company!

ImageQueen Rella, started out as a name given to me by a child.  Now a grown man and out of school, he just don’t know what he did calling me Rella.  I changed something someone was using as a insult, and developed it into a empire!  I was called Barbara-Rella, by a associate that I considered a friend at one point in time.  I use to live with their family, and as I am now, and have always been a “NEAT FREAK” or as some say “OC”.  I just say that I like to surround myself with good FENG SHUI.  Keeping my home organized and neat, keeps my life in order.  Anyway, I would come home from 8 plus hours of a overtime work shift.  These shifts started around 3pm, and I wouldn’t get off from work back then until well after 12am sometimes.  This job required a lot of manual labor, and standing so it’s needless to say how tired I would be.  Still I can’t stand no house in disarray.  I would come home, and clean the house from top to bottom.  When they awoke in the am, they would find a house neatly cleaned that they didn’t have to lift a finger for.  So she started calling me, and directing her son to call me Barbara-Rella.  A spin off of Cinderella who often found herself cleaning up after her wicked Step-Mom and Sisters.  It was suppose to be a put down, I guess.  Well I’m determined to turn that S*** into Sugar!!

As of March 2013 I just recently found out that my published books, are now available to be borrowed from Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Library. {A CHILDHOOD DREAM COMING TO REALITY!}  I started out on this journey to get inducted into the Library Catalog system, two years ago!  So you know that this news is very exciting for me, and my company http://www.queenrellabooks.webs.com .  Two years ago, I donated books to the East Liberty and Eastridge Library in Pittsburgh, hoping that these people in the library would enter it into the catalog system. {Especially since I am a local Author}  What I got was swift kick into reality that everything takes time, and work.  It was interesting to find out, after all that driving around, delivering books, and donating them.  It wasn’t even the libraries that I submitted to, that introduced the books to the system.  http://www.pennhillslibrary.org/New%20Materials/march2013newmats.pdf

Both of the books published so far, Steel Twinz “Ladies In The Street” and Tales From Steel City are both available for borrowing!!!  I’m on the new materials list with the great Mr Dan Rooney, with his new book “Allegheny City: A History of Pittsburgh’s North Side”!!  Not to mention, Queen Rella’s Novella’s have some big things coming for the future~!!  I’m excited to share this news, and its a blessing that things are starting to fall in place for my dream.  When I found out I was entered into the library system, it made me realize that no matter the humble beginnings you come from, you can build “NOTHING” into “SOMETHING GREAT!”  I hope that’s inspirational for you~!! It is proving to be motivation for me~!!  I can’t take all the credit for this revelation, first I need to thank my HIGHER POWER, Jehovah for always showing me my path in life and THANKS to whoever it is that kept requesting my book for library induction.  Lastly but most importantly, Thanks, to PENN HILLS LIBRARY for putting my book on their new materials list!  It such a dream come true for me!!

As far as where I go from here?!?  I have a couple more books that is ready for release, and many more that’s being worked on!!  Not only is as a publishing company, but as a Author, and a dedicated YOUTUBE publisher {www.youtube.com/queenrella77} as well.   This is just the FIRST CHAPTER in the book of Queen Rella’s Novella’s….stay tuned for more to come~!!

Thanks for reading, and staying in touch~!!

Luv Always,

Queen Rella


Another Mile Stone…another goal reached!

ImageQueen Rella’s Novella’s presents TALES FROM STEEL CITY {A Collection Of Short Stories}  QRN’s {www.queenrellabooks.webs.com}  Brings you a Novella that is designed to rock your soul!  (COMING SOON IN WINTER 2012!!!)

When I started in on this project, it seemed so far away that I will reach my goal.  Through determination, and love from my readers I continued pushing to put this Novella out.  Being a C.E.O. or a self publishing Author on the rise, it’s impertinent that I stay on top of myself.  Being my own boss details plenty of discipline.  Still I love to share with you that this Novella is another one to add to your reading collection.  In this Novella, your mind will be expanded as you read QRN’s own Queen Rella’s short stories entitled THR33 SID3S & THICKNESS…you also get a sneak peek into the much anticipated Novella STEEL TWINZ “Ladies On A Mission”.  In this Novella I wanted to bring out different writing styles and I got to feature Author Shayla Bryant with her short story “What Happened?”

Another mile stone for me have been reached, another goal to check off of my list.  This is still just the beginning of my journey.  I’m laying the ground work for this publishing company, and want to continue to pick up readers along the way.  I want to let you know to come through to my website queenrellabooks.webs.com and sign up.  On that website and on my official YOU TUBE channel: youtube.com/queenrella77 you can get exclusive information on contest, and book release dates!!  So with me you can reach another mile stone…of reading another QUEEN RELLA NOVELLA’s exclusive…so get ready, for a trip into the mind of Queen Rella and Shayla Bryant in TALES FROM STEEL CITY {{COMING SOON}}!!!!

Don’t forget to grab up STEEL TWINZ “Ladies In The Street” and get caught up, and ready for the next chapter!!
