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

Camille Holden-Shannon has always been who she says she is, a woman who can command a courtroom and bedroom without opening her mouth! She’s sexy, confident and not afraid; her credentials speak for themselves. She loves her family and her career but she cannot deny the fact that she loves sex and lots of it. She doesn’t break up homes; she simply gets what she needs and she’s gone!

Her career suddenly takes a turn in the right direction and she is thrown into the public’s eye and all hell breaks loose! A secret adds more fuel to the fire already burning inside her chaotic home and to make matters worse she finds herself being tormented by a ghost from her past! Can she hold it all together or will she break under the pressure? Will Ms. Nice Nasty hang up her stilettos or can she come out on top like she’s known to do.

11791849_861706553917678_840585635_n Ms. Nice Nasty: Cam’s Confession

When you allow your past hurt to push you into present sin, it may not work out so well!

For Camille, she proudly proclaims to be “unapologetic” about the way she lives her life but when her actions start affecting everything she knows, she has to make a choice between being ‘nice’ or ‘nasty’.

In Cam’s Confession, Camille finally takes therapy serious. She slowly opens the box of her past as she deals with the hurt that made her a woman scorned. Dr. Scott hopes with her finally releasing this demon, she can now move on with her life. But can she?

She thought revenge was what she needed but it only made matters worse. She thought sex would do it but it only made her worse. Now what?

With her life, marriage and career barreling out of control; will she be able to stop the train before it wrecks?

Find out in this 11,000 words special edition of Ms. Nice Nasty. Also, get a sneak peek into the first two unedited chapters of Ms. Nice Nasty 2.

All of her past skeletons come tumbling out at the same damn time!

Just when Camille thinks she has the chaos of her life under control, the clouds break and she has a hard time controlling the storm. Her already shaky marriage is crumbling before her eyes, add to it her husband’s pregnant side chick and all the skeletons in her closet; she may be in over her head!

Now, she’s standing face to face with Karma and it’s the last person she’d ever expect it to be. The same person, who has been tormenting her the last six months, is now threatening to ruin everything she has worked so hard for.

She should have listened when her mom told her, “your actions have consequences” because now she’s finding out the hard way. Will she back down under the pressure of being exposed or will she lay all of her cards on the table? What will it take for her to open her eyes?

Maybe she should have listened to her therapist or maybe it’ll take the possibility of losing her career, a near death experience of someone she loves or the unexpected death of a loved one, to open her eyes. Or is it simply too late?

Has her actions left her with more than she can conquer or can she survive with her mind, marriage and career intact? Find out in the series finale of Ms. Nice Nasty!

Bookaversarie!

Yesterday, April 7, 2016 was one year that I’ve released the first book in my second series! WOW!! Yes, I’ve written a few books since then but it’s still surreal. I mean, I never thought I’d be a published author but then Delphine Publications came along and I’ll tell anybody that’ll listen how grateful I am for Tamika Newhouse. She is a chick that grinds, minute by minute and she it taking the literary industry by storm (If you don’t know her, Google her) LOL.

But I didn’t start this post to be all sentimental but I’m writing this for somebody out there that doesn’t think they can do it. YES YOU CAN! You can do whatever you set your mind to. Please understand this, writing isn’t for wimps (I’ve said it before). There will be times you push and you still won’t get the sales you thought you should. There will be times you think you’ve written a great book and it’ll still get bad reviews. There will be times you pray for mega support and you won’t get it (even from family and friends). This is why you have to remain strong.

And STOP gauging your success off of what somebody else has. You are not them and they are not you. Don’t expect your book to be on New York Time’s best seller list the day after you publish and no one knows your name. Don’t release a book on Tuesday and expect a major publishing company to pick you up on Wednesday. It takes time in this line of business. Why? Because there are 100 other people writing about the same thing you are. But that’s ok, continue to write.

If you don’t get anything else from this post, get this … remain humble in your gift. Stay the course and it’ll eventually work out. You’ll go from getting $26 royalty checks to $2600 royalty checks … in God’s time! Let your work speak for you and it’ll happen. For the bible tells us in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

So as I celebrate another milestone, please understand; I am not there yet either but it doesn’t mean I’m getting off the ride. One of hese good ole days, I’ll be writing how I went from that $26 royalty check to $2600. Don’t believe me just watch!

God has given me an amazing gift and I know He didn’t give it to me to bury it in the ground because eventually it’ll pay off. So I’ll be patient until it does. You do the same thing. Don’t give up on what you have and what you’ve done. It will work out.

Trust in your gift!

They find themselves intertwined between the legs of men, who aren’t their husbands on a number of occasions. For some, the cheating is because they are missing what they need at home. For others, they do it because they love it. Yet they’ve vowed it’s A Secret Worth Keeping!

Find out what happens to them when it all becomes too much. Will their marriages survive? Will they find the love they’ve been looking for?

Oh, I couldn’t let it end there because Camille Shannon (Cam if you’re nasty) was just too much for one series, she needed her own.

In Ms. Nice Nasty, you get to know more about Cam. She always proclaimed to be who she is, take her or leave her but what happens when that’s no longer enough? In book one (1) she’s unapologetic for the life she lives. Will she still be that way by book three (3)?

Writing didn’t find me!

Being a author, whether through a publishing company or being self published, takes hard work. Why? imageBecause writing isn’t for wimps! Nawl! But it’s not just the writing because them comes the hustle and flow! See, what’s the sense of spending all of your extra time writing to simply allow your work to sit idle. You have to grind extra hard being a new author just to get your name out there. Then you have to keep up the hustle and the grind to keep your name out!

Yea, you’ll have a few bad reviews but your work won’t please everybody, all the time, so keep grinding. Yea, you’ll have folk, even some family and close friends that won’t support you but even Jesus knew this for He said in Mark 6:4, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family.” Yet don’t stop the hustle.

I pray daily for God to kill more and more of my flesh so that I can be spiritually better than yesterday. This doesn’t mean in order for me to stop writing fiction books (unless God says it) but so that even they will be anointed!

I told you that writing didn’t find me; it was etched in my soul even before my daddy’s sperm met my mother’s egg! How do I know? God told me. He said He knew me before I was formed which makes my writing (whatever genre) ordained! It is my prayer that the mark I leave on your life is a good one. I pray that when you look at me, you see God. I pray that God will use me abundantly to save folk. And I pray that He allows my gifts to take me places I’ve only dreamed of.

It’ll happen … In God’s time! Don’t give up, hold on! (that’s for somebody) #transparentSaint
