What is the true price for fulfilling your dreams? Is it going against your own standard beliefs, becoming something you’re not? Or putting yourself in a position to be “eaten alive” by your enemy or better yet your supposed to be friends and people you thought were on your side. Lynne Forde examines that question in her new novel, Lies of Blue.
Set in New York’s grit and grime, this epic full-length novel tells the story of an aspiring music executive who gets caught up in the world of men, money and drugs. In her attempt to escape the poisonous world of entertainment, Lynne launches a new “career” as a correctional officer in a men’s prison. The trials and tribulations that follow send her spiraling into an even more disastrous world from which she came, eventually putting the young woman up against games that can kill. Join Lynne on her journey as she comes full circle with her mistakes and choices in efforts to finally realize her dream.
As Lynne Forde’s first full-length novel, which is accompanied by a straight to DVD movie version of the work, this multimedia project looks to set a milestone in urban fiction by introducing a new element for the reader. As a phenomenal writer with the ability to fully capture her own experiences in words, Lynne is also writer for the people. Women and those who go against all odds to progress, in particular will be able to explore real life situations in lyric and sound as they journey with Lynne Ford into the Lies of Blue.
An ambitious woman and trailblazer with several other written screenplays, including “Living the Dream” and “Best Kept Secret”, Forde lives with no regrets of the sacrifices she has made to become the woman she is today. Hoping to aid other individuals who are put in between the hard decisions of life, “Lies of Blue” is a compelling novel that will make a difference in many lives. A firm believer in the word ‘sacrifice,’ Forde knows she has more to make, but if she can help others through those sacrifices she has already made, than it all will have been well worth the struggle.

Joining forces with Saffyre Entertainment in 1998 has successfully propelled both of the entities to the forefront of the entertainment industry. In addition to staking her place in the world of entertainment Forde is also currently working on a number of community based projects that include the H.O.P.E. Foundation, which will enable men of color to make an easier transition back into the community. This is first of many ways Forde intends to reach out and uplift the community.
With the Ability to combine her street knowledge with business savvy, which allows her to speak to both “the hood” and the boardroom with ease, her life experiences have just begun to show the industry how bright her light can shine. The sky is truly the limit for Forde as she has created a critically acclaimed trailer for her book “Lies of Blue” totally changing the face of urban literature.
