ATL … I’m coming!

This weekend, me and an entire plethora of authors and readers are bombarding Atlanta. Naw, chile, this ain’t Freaknik … it’s better! We’re joining with the 556 Book Chicks, for their annual Kick Back Book Event.

I know … it’s exciting, right?

This is why, if you’re in Atlanta or the surrounding areas, I’d love to see you. Stop by my table, purchase a few books, pick up a few pens and snap some selfies. Then move to the next table and repeat.

I hope y’all are ready because I am.

New Book Alert …

66894593_10220169281921030_8032909301150384128_n

 

My newest release #WhentheVowsBreak is a remake of my very first fiction series, #ASecretWorthKeeping.

Is it the same book? No! The characters are the same but the story line is completely different.

Is it Christian Fiction? Not fully, as book 1 takes you on a journey, with these 6 women, to find their way back to God, Faith, trust, etc. With this being shared, there is some cursing and sex scenes (although not as explicit as before).

Is it available? Yep! On #Amazon and #KindleUnlimited.

Do I need your support? ALWAYS!

Get it HERE!


Synopsis:

Dearly beloved, that’s how it begins,
What God has joined together, let no man put asunder; that’s how it ends.
Happily married, wedded bliss and with these rings, we do take;
But what happens to happily ever after, when the vows break?

Shelby, Raylan, Chloe, Lynesha, Kerri and Camille have been friends since freshmen year of high school. They’ve been together through college, failed relationships, deaths, and sickness. They’ve watched each other grow and become business leaders and owners, wives and mothers.

They’ve survived when most people say, women can’t be friends.

Then, all hell breaks loose in each of their marriages.

Secrets, lying, cheating, drugs, alcohol, and temptations prove that not everything is what it seems.

Will the chaos of it all be more than they can take? Find out in part 1 of When the Vows Break

WRITING IS NOT FOR WIMPS

WRITING IS NOT FOR WIMPS

I’ve penned this particular topic, a couple of times before and I thought I’d share it again.

WRITING IS NOT FOR WIMPS

Writing is for those who trust and believe in the process and timing of it all. See, writing takes hard work, patience, determination, passion, money AND courage. No, it doesn’t take some of these, it takes all of these.

I’ll tell you why …

1. Hard work – if you think writing is as easy as pulling out a computer or a notepad, think again. You have to come up with a story that makes sense, flows and is grammatically correct while sacrificing time you want to hang out, sleep, vacation and everything else. You NEVER give up!

2. Patience – it takes patience to build a following, to get people to believe in you, to make it to bestseller, to sell books and to see a return on your investment. You NEVER give up!

3. Determination – Who will work harder for you than you! (sing with me … nobody!) You have to be determined to make it even when the royalty checks aren’t enough to cover gas. You have to be determined, even when it’s been months and no reviews. You have to be determined to keep writing even when your first book is still ranked at 1,254.144 on Amazon. Which means … you NEVER give up!

4. Passion – Writing can/is be a career but it works better when it’s a passion, something you believe in. How do you know if it’s your passion? Your passion is something that you’ll willingly lose sleep over and something you will not give up on, especially when it gets hard. You NEVER give up!

5. Money – Here’s one that you might cringe at but you have to spend money to make money. From book covers, editing, promotion, ads, newsletters, gifts, etc. because Jezzy, the rapper said, “Scared money don’t make money.” Sometimes you have to take a risk, even if it fails, the first time. You NEVER give up!

6. Courage – You absolutely have to have courage. Why? Because you will have strangers reading your work and some will not like it. You’ll have folk combing through every word and scene with a fine tooth comb, leaving “constructive criticism” on a word you misspelled or a comma you didn’t place. Mane, you’ll have folk mad because your fiction story doesn’t seem real.  Writing takes thick skin but here’s the blessing … for the few who don’t like it, hundreds will. You NEVER give up!

Therefore, let me leave you with this piece of advice, don’t allow anyone to detour your dreams. It’s your story, tell it. Sure, writing isn’t for wimps but it’s worth it! Just NEVER give up!

— Keep writing 🧡

Dear sister,

Dear sister,

 

I apologize for being the bearer of this gut wrenching news but …. You cannot be mad at ALL men simply because you’ve made the mistake of choosing ALL the wrong ones. In other words, stop making all men pay for the mistakes of a mistake.

Here’s the part that may hurt, even more … take some time to heal! You can’t do this running from relationship to relationship. Find YOU, love YOU and believe in YOU first before you give yourself to anybody, other than God. This means, you may have to spend some time by yourself and be okay with it.

Take yourself out – if you can’t spend time with self, you definitely can’t spend time with somebody else.

Boost your own confidence – If you don’t believe in you, how can you convince somebody else?

Love you – If you don’t know how to love you, how will you know when someone else does?

Not all men are bad and the one meant for you, will find you when you stop sabotaging you.

Sincerely,
A concerned sister who wants you to be happy.

Synopsis:

Dear God,

Hear my prayer because it feels like 2:32AM and I’m losing my faith. I’m being Chased by my past and fear has left me Broken. God; I want to do better, I desire to be better and I’m tired of feeling this way. Please God, I need your help. I need you to restore me.

Amen.

This box set of books is a compilation of

1. Dear God: Hear My Prayer

Jayme’s story of overcoming abuse at the hands of her stepfather, Pastor James Madison. She has to find her way back to God and it all starts with her saying, “Dear God, hear my prayer.”

2. 2:32AM

Charlotte feels as though her faith is being tested when her daughter dies, suddenly. She can’t make sense of the suffering, she’s having to endure so it causes her to lose her faith.

3. Chased

Pastor Magnolia Wright has been given an opportunity to serve God’s people but she’s fearful. Fearful of the thing that keeps chasing her … Her Past. Sure, she can preach God’s message, lay hands and pray for others but what happens when she’s the one in need?

4. Broken

Gwendolyn’s heart is used to being broken, by men. It started when her dad walked out when she was 13. Then she meets Jacque and his love was the thing she needed to mend her heart. Until he broke it. Now, she finds herself spiraling and she needs help.

All four of these books are written, from a place of hope and restoration. It is my prayer, you will find the courage to be healed and made whole, while not losing your faith in God.
