Veep, House of Cards, and Scandal are all incredible programs, but they only show you what you already know about DC—that it’s a hilarious, but often horrifying, political circus. Of Music and Men is a fresh take on the millennial journey that uses one of the most diverse, transient cities in the world to tell a story of the true American dream.

Order today… e-book or paperback


J’s life takes an interesting turn overnight. Friday evening she set out to cover the opening of Black Girl Art Gallery for Face Magazine. Saturday morning, she awakens in the bed of the gallery owner. And yes, he is beside her. And no, she doesn’t get her story before she leaves. But by Sunday night, while she’s still asking herself what happened, you’ll probably be asking yourself this: Are women the new men?

Tenth Letter explores this fascinating dynamic and the role it plays in the clashing of the sexes by introducing you to two people who share an intense desire to be with each other despite the barrage of issues hindering any real chance at success. Hers—she’s that alpha male persona: she’s selfish, rather self-centered, arrogant, and doesn’t know the first thing about how to love another person. And his big issue? Well… he picks the wrong women.

Tenth Letter is a phenomenal debut novel that will anchor many of your debates about men, women, relationships, and the reality of starting over.

tenth letter feedback

“The complexity of this love story is a step above others read this year. The character development is phenomenal and the realness of the storyline strikes home. The metaphors used help the reader totally experience the pain in realizing the shortcomings of individuals. Brown is a new voice in relationship drama and the power of starting over. I absolutely recommend this one.”

– Deltareviewer for Real Page Turners


“This is a book that discreetly begs the answer to what has become the question of the 21st century, our generation: ‘Are women the new men?’ It’s a genuine story that explores the modern-day man and woman, and what it may take for us to coexist monogamously.”

– Malik B., satisfied reader


“A breath of fresh air. This book had me talking to myself, smiling, laughing, and close to tears. A great read! Page turnin’ and poetic. Wow.”

– Mondell T. Pope, Author: Both Sides of the Fence


“The character development was good… I enjoy the fact that [Brown] chose to explore what would happen if two people became involved in a relationship neither were ready for, a topic I haven’t seen written about before. As a result, TENTH LETTER offers a fresh perspective on relationship novels.”

– Stacey Seay of The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

Failing to Wina creative’s guide to living through defeat

In this book, Kayona provides keys to help entrepreneurs, especially those just starting out, stay on course and avoid giving up as they work toward their dream.

One Word: second novel in the Tenth Letter series 

Told through a unique use of nonlinear, alternating narrative, One Word is the “anti-fairytale” love story. It is a story of love, but not of a romance. Although built on a potentially disastrous heard-this-before, boy-meets-girl anecdote (which could’ve caused oversight of its prequel, Tenth Letter), One Word contrarily takes readers on a different, more grander ride where the characters' lives now become an affecting allegory for the fleeting joys of life and the oversights that make us who we are.
