Black Author Says Her New Novel is “Dreamgirls” Meets “Waiting to Exhale” with a Nostalgic 90s Twist

Nationwide — Kensington Publishing announces the release of its new novel Intermission by Phyllis R. Dixon. As glittering as their name, The Diamonds were on the brink of 1990s pop music stardom — until betrayal tore them apart. Now these four very different women are getting a second shot at success. But will reuniting mend their rift — or will lasting secrets, unspoken betrayals, new temptations, and the hard knocks of today’s music industry destroy them, and their dreams, for good?
