Meet Monda Webb

About 7:33 am

In a city where power struggles take place daily on Capitol Hill, another power struggle is taking place beyond the monuments; namely between Damion Eric Cross, his girlfriend Crystal Renee Leonard and his girlfriend, Madison Paige Robinson. You can only juggle so long before you drop a ball, and eventually, in a town as city slick and country cool as Washington , DC , the two women are bound to discover one another.

But how do you manage the truth once you know it? Is it possible to love two people at once? Is it possible for one man to stay faithful to one woman in a city bursting at the seams with beautiful, professional women and an obvious shortage of good brothers? Read 7:33 a.m. , and judge for yourself.

The story takes place during the course of a year, from 1999 to the millennium, as the plot grows along with the main characters. 7:33 a.m. paints Washington , DC as a character among a cast of rich and memorable characters who range from simple to complex to somewhere in-between.

7:33 a.m. is funny, honest, unflinchingly real, and sure to make you run the gamut of emotions, from laughter to anger to tears. You will definitely hollar out loud, as this story touches you in only ways you can relate to with your own personal experiences.

I briefly wanted to share why I feel my novel, 7:33 am is different. The age-old story of a love triangle is not new. However, the story is told in a refreshing and lively manner, and the focus on love is not actually between the two women and their man, but the love they have to find within themselves and the journey it sometimes takes to get there. Both women suffer and sacrifice the consequences of putting someone before themselves.

The novel is distinctive because it contains a companion CD with songs written exclusively to match particular scenes in 7:33 am. My friend Hermond Palmer wrote the lyrics, and a local DC artist sang 7 tracks with the hope that we can make reading an interactive experience. Book Soundtracks will become my signature, and will feature new artists and original lyrics and music for each project. My next book (Short Stories - Red Clay Dirt and Mountains - will feature at least 4 new songs to accompany the theme of the stories.)

Finally, for many of the book signings I have, I give a portion of the proceeds to a non-profit organization or charity. The non-profit is chosen by the Host of the city I've traveled to.
