I wish I could take credit …

1_BjJgI9A-retXEEUu-Efl5g

I wish I could take sole credit for penning all the books, I have but I didn’t do it alone. Truth is, I couldn’t do it alone. Writing, for me, isn’t about money or fame, I write because it’s assigned to my name. This is why, every book is prayed over; before, during and after.

It’s not about me. If it were, I’d continually push books, with no rhyme or reason. If it were about me, I wouldn’t care if a message was received by the readers, it would be about royalties. If it were about me, I wouldn’t care about the negative reviews but I do (some of them). However, this isn’t about me. This ministry of Lakisha, the Author … it’s all God!

I’m grateful to God and to the readers and supporters who are there for every release. I’m even more appreciative of the seasons of drought because they have me time to work, study and get better.

I wish I had the magic answer, the right keywords for ads, the perfect promoter, the thing that’s going to catapult your career and increase sales but I don’t. What I do know is, it takes time. For someone who don’t think their work is enough, it is and DO NOT, under any circumstances, give up! You got this but you’ve got to keep going, keep writing, keep preaching, keep believing, keep trusting and keep getting up!

It’ll payoff when you pray, tithe, trust God and work your faith.

I’m a living witness and if you need proof, click HERE to see.

Happy Reading,
Lakisha

Excerpt … Shattered

Shattered available now on Amazon

“I do want this marriage, why else would I still be here?”

“To annoy me,” I shrug then laugh. “Maybe this is karma for everything I’ve done, to you or it’s God’s way of punishing me for breaking my vows. Either way, I can’t keep doing this. When I get back from Miami, I’m going to find somewhere else to stay and file for divorce. Now, get out,” I say walking over to open the door.

He grabs my arm, turning me to face him and closes the door. “I’m not going anywhere and you’re going to listen to me, for once.”

“I don’t—”

“Damn it, Camille.” The sound of his voice causes me to jump. “I’m sorry for yelling but I’ve put up with so much of your crap and never once did I say divorce. The nights, no the mornings you’d come in from doing God knows what, I was right here. When you threw in my face, your cheating, I still gave you chance after chance. The night you overdosed—”

“Don’t.”

“No,” he says pushing me back against the wall. “The night you overdosed, I gave you the option to stay and get help, but you left, and we all know how that worked out. You, laying in the hospital for seven days and I was right there, watching you fight for your life.

Camille, I’ve always been here, for you, even when I should have put your ass out and now, the first time I mess up, you want to leave me. Well, you can’t because you owe me more than that.”

I snatch my arm away from him. “I don’t owe you anything.”

“Like hell! You owe me the same freaking thing I keep giving you and that’s a chance. Camille, I made a huge mistake but why is my sin costing more than all the ones you’ve committed? Why should I have to pay, with our marriage when you almost paid with your life and yet, I’m right here? Am I not worth, fighting for?”

I slide down to the floor.

“You don’t get to decide that we’re over. You have to fight for me, at least once because I deserve it and damn it, you’re going to do it.”

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

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.
