Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hello all and thank you for checking out my page!
SELLOUT is my debut novel about three individuals--a black woman, black man and white woman--facing the consequences of interracial dating. I've found that people sometimes have strong reasons for dating outside the race, which include negative stereotypes (i.e., black men are players). I once knew a black man who was in the middle of divorcing a black woman and he told me he would never date another black woman again. I thought that was sad and interesting at the same time.
I wanted to explore the root cause of the characters' racial dating decisions by delving deep into their psyches. What makes a person completely ostracize their own race and "jump the fence?" SELLOUT answers those questions.
Hope you enjoy it!
--James W. Lewis

I have often said to myself when I see a black man with a white woman...Why? This is a question I believe we all as black women have ask ourselves. Now that I have a 19 year old son I think about this more, he is a college student and dates white and black women. Me as a mother would love for him to marry a black woman...but his happiness is all that really matters..I quess.

Well James W. Lewis did a wonderful job with this book... So after dealing with the tired/no good brothers who have cheated and hurt us time and time again enough to make a sister date a white man? Is she a Sellout if she does? And what about our black men who get tired of the black woman drama with her guards up, jealous, and not trusting is that enough to make him date only white women? Does that make him a Sellout? What about the white woman who only dates black men? Sellout? And lets not forget about the white man who thinks and acts like a black man and loves black women? Is he a Sellout?

But this book is so much more...I read it in a day because I could not put it down. It takes a turn that I did not expect and actually has you on edge. I dont want to give anything away because its a must read. I'm glad that I read this book because it hits home in so many ways...I tell my son all the time when dating white women "just because she likes you doesnt mean her father does".

This book actually made me think more about the word Sellout...does it actually mean racist? Can we actually be prejudice against our own? What a great job James W. Lewis...I wish you much success and I will always be a fan!

This book had a good premise but the execution left a lot to be desired. The book stemmed around three characters, Terrell, Tammy and Penelope. Terrell had a few bad experiences with black women so he decided to start dating white women only. Penelope was one of those trailer chicks who decided she wanted to date black men because they were forbidden. Tammy decided to have a fling with a white man after her boyfriend turned out to be a cheater and an arms dealer. The first problem I had with the book was the fact that Dedrick's sister Sheryl was the stereotypical "black" woman who doesn't have a man, is bitter because she sees black men with white women and the only guy she hangs around is a gay black man. Hello? Not all black women are angry and bitter nor do we all hang around with gay black men. For once I would like to see black authors portray us as something other than gold diggers, hood rats or bitter and angry. Tammy was supposed to be an educated black woman but the best line she could come up with was "boy, stop it." Really. Who talks like this to other adults? No one that I know. As if the rest of the book didn't leave a bitter taste in my mouth, Penelope was responsible for Dedrick being in the hospital and because she "saved" his life all of a sudden Sheryl was so nice to her and wanted to accept her? No one makes a 360 degree change like that in a course of a few minutes I don't care what the circumstances are. Especially considering the fact that Penelope's brother was the reason he was in the hospital in the first place. The ending was too abrupt. One minute they are talking to Dedrick, the next Terrell is stating that there was just a mixture of white and black people in the room, no sellouts. That left me scratching my head and even more frustrated. There was another book preview at the end of this one but I don't think I'll be ordering it.

While the story had a good premise and the second half of the book kept me engaged, the writing was mediocre. I'm not sure if this specific to the Kindle edition or if the print edition has similar issues, the book was laced with typos, one part even had the author's contact information randomly interjected into the prose. I also felt like I was being hit over the head with the race issues, and while unfortunately they do still exist, I felt it could have been presented better. While I found myself frequently rolling my eyes, the book held my attention long enough for me to finish.

Sellout, the debut novel by James W. Lewis, introduces readers to four individuals who discover issues that come with dating outside of their race. Tammy McDonald is a well-to-do loan officer who cannot find the right man. When she meets Dale Bristol, it seems her luck just might turn around. Terrell Jackson is a prominent black optometrist that has gotten fed up with his girlfriend's crazy rantings and accusations. He decides it is time he crossed over to the other side. Will he stay or will a chance encounter change his mind?

Penelope Miller is falling in love with the guy of her dreams, but she has one problem, he is of another race. Will her family be able to accept it? Dedrick has developed feelings for the perfect woman and everything is going well in their relationship. He decides to surprise her but soon realizes that he is the one being surprised. Dedrick will then have to make a speedy decision on whether his woman is worth all that comes with her. These individuals have more in common than they believe and when the tide turns, readers will not believe what happens.

Sellout is a book that takes interracial dating to another level. It has unexpected twists that readers will not see coming and suspense that is out of this world. The author's creative way of linking these individuals and couples made for an exciting book. Sellout is very entertaining and will keep readers on the edge of their seats. I definitely recommend this book to others.
