#GoodReadFriday: Hope & My Fiction Ep.3

Happy Friday!

We made it to the end of another week and it’s time for another episode of Hope & My Fiction.

Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to the Dikes. Amara & Ejike Dike are the first married couple I wrote about and boy let me tell you, they are my award winning couple and reader favorite. Their story however almost didn’t get written. You see I almost listened to the surveys and veteran writer opinions advice that said “married couple books” don’t really sell as romance. Being a new writer then I almost took that advice but I’m so glad I didn’t. If you are a new writer out there reading this, my advice to you is to research your market but be faithful to your convictions and God and write what is in your heart to write.

When You Let Go cover3

The Dikes were the loving, Christian couple who had everything, except the one thing they desired. As they held on to hope believing that God wold come through for them, they are met with a bombshell that would rock the very foundation if their existence. At a point everything around Amara looked hopeless. Ejike wallowed in despair as his marriage slowly slipped out of his fingers. Just when they thought it was all over,the Lord Almighty intervened in ways only He can.

When You Let Go is available in Print & Ebook on all major platforms.

GOODREADFRIDAY: HOPE & MY FICTION EP.2

Missed this last week. My bad, I’ve been really on the go but we are back.

This week in hope & my fiction, I want to focus on the Rices. In The Christmas Ultimatum, Olanma & Abayomi were brought together and fell in love fast. Theirs was a story of a whirlwind romance in spite of a rocky beginning. They later went on to have a fairytale wedding. One you would expect rich young people with wealthy backgrounds to have. However, we met them again five years later in The Final Ultimatum and they are not so happy. Apparently the  romance and big weddings are all they are good at. The marriage,not so much.

What happens when the love they shared goes oh so bad? Olanma was convinced love was the devil. Will Abayomi be able to prove her wrong? After a whirlwind romance and a fairytale wedding, the Rices are having a hard time having a happy marriage.
On a trip to SA to give it one last go, they are met with dangerous situation that has the whole family bonded in prayer for safety.
Love, betrayals, sacrifice and redemption all wrapped into a delightful tale. The Rices have all but given up on a favorable end for their marriage until they surrendered to the Author and Finisher of their faith.

You can find The Ultimatum Series on all major online bookstores and in print.

Pick up both books and take a trip to South Africa for less than $7 🙂

#GoodReadFriday: Hope & My Fiction Ep.1

Hope is a reoccurring theme on this blog and my books. If you want to know why read this post I did a while ago There’s A Reason .My fictional characters have in one way or another let go of what they know to be true because of something that happened to them or those they love.

Over the course of my journey, I’ve had new following which I’m thankful for so I decided to feature my books as a reminder that you can escape into the the beautiful world of fiction and be edified as you relate with the story. During the course of the tale, they regain hope in the one true God. They are able to glow In The Dark by building back their confident expectations in the promises of God.

Sons of Ishmael: The Danjumas

In this series, you get to delve into the lives of two brothers who lost hope because of the actions of their father and consequence of that action for them and their mother. They held on to their convictions until they met two women who shifted their perspective through faith and romance.

In book 1, A Scoop of Love, heir to the Danjuma empire, Rasheed is forced to confront past hurts and deal with the head strong caterer, Ibiso who is determined to have him check his baggage at the door. Will their love stand a chance?
In book 2, Anchored By Love, One night took Jabir & Damisi back to the very beginning, where they are forced to face old scars. They thought they were done but neither was prepared for what fate had in store.

The Sons of Ishmael Series
Available in Print/Kindle/Nook/Kobo

Just like Rasheed & Jabir were able to glow in their dark place, we are called to do the same. Don’t forget to preorder your copy of my new book In The Dark. With undisguised testimony, tips and tricks, In The Dark will guide you through those times when you wonder what the end game really is.

In case You Haven’t Heard

Hey there!

My seventh book is now available!!

I know you’ve probably heard but the blog title is catchy right? Well I thought so. Okay so back to the topic at hand. On Friday Oct 21, The Final Ultimatum  went live!! As you know, it is the stand alone sequel to The Christmas Ultimatum .I always stress the stand alone part because at no time during the writing of the Christmas book, did I ever think I was going to write a sequel. I had no intention of bringing Olanma and Abayomi back. However, the readers wanted it and 4 books later, here we are.

Well they are back and I had so much fun hanging out with them again. Every piece of writing takes me on a journey and this was no different. It came at a point where this topic was not really what I wanted to talk about. However it’s never about me. I hope you enjoy the return of the RICES.

Now all Olanma wants is to be free. Free from her rocky marriage, manipulative husband and overbearing father.

Once he gets divorce papers, Abayomi Rice knows his wife has called his bluff. He didn’t mean to manipulate her but her broken promises and inability to stand up to her father tore them apart.
