When You Let Go: A Snippet

When You Let Go cover3

Hey y’all remember the name of my  WIP was Amarachi~ The Grace of God.

Editor Feedback: Amarachi was a complex name. The Grace of God was too generic. So a title change was suggested.

Amara’s story is one where she had to let go of pain to be open to forgive and receive. So the new title is…When You Let Go

Enjoy another snippet. I’m almost there, I’ll announce a release date soon

Pulling a chair, Ejike sat with an exaggerated grin on his face. “I’m sure you guys wouldn’t mind if I joined your party.”

How did he find her? Amara opened her mouth to speak, when Ejike continued while glaring at Devon.

“You must have the magic touch to get my wife to laugh like that,” he said. “She did tell you she is married, right?”

Devon had a confused look on his face. His eyes traveled from her to Ejike. “I’d hate for you to go to hell because you drank from another man’s well,” Ejike said.

Amara’s jaw dropped. How dare he act like she was doing something wrong? If she didn’t do something he would end up costing her this client. “Devon Roberson, meet my husband Ejike Dike,” she said.

Devon extended his hand. “Nice to meet you,” he said.

Ejike ignored his hand. “I wish I could say it was a pleasure.”

That’s it she had had enough. Amara stood up. “Excuse us,” she said to Devon. “I’ll be back shortly.”

Ejike stood. “Don’t bother, I’ll see myself out.” He turned around and left without a backward glance.

It’s My Party!

Wrapped_GiftsI have told the story a thousand times… I got the gift to write from God but the actual push came from my husband. I remember the day he saw my personal library overflowing with books.

“Babe, I see all these books, where is yours?” he asked That was six years ago. My blog was born and then followed my book, An Unexpected Blessing.  Suffice to say that before I even thought about writing one word, I was and still am a book addict. I mean it, seriously…so I thought what better way to celebrate my blog’s birthday than to introduce you to the books that I read. And the authors I admire..

I will be giving away five books.

Pat Simmons: I call Ms. Pat my “shero”, her books have me up till 3 a.m on a work night. Yeah that good. When I finally talked to her, she was just as down to earth as I imagined. I wanted to give way my best book by her, Crowning Glory but its not in an e format. So here is  Stopping Traffic. Thank me later and try out her Guilty will take a whole post to talk about those Jameison men.stopping




Rhonda McKnight: I really admire this author. She has a lot of great books, I like all her books. But I’m giving away An Inconvenient Friend, after reading it you might knock over people trying to get to the sequel What Kind of While you are at it you might wanna check out her new book Breaking All The Rules, its on my to be read (4)




Salt Bola Essien-Nelson: She is my sister pillar, my big sis and a woman spreading the message of Christ in the simplest of terms. She is the brain behind the Desperate Naija Woman series. Now she has a new book out True Confessions, and I’m giving it to you!





Yejide Kilanko:  She is my sister in pen. She is another sister pillar that God has blessed me with. I want to introduce her book Daughters Who Walk This Path to you. Her new book will be out next spring.





Finally, Norma Jarret: I haven’t read her work but she is a true woman of God. Dropping nuggets that give you food for thought. She is known for light hearted books that spread the message and provides humor at the same time. I have her latest book  Love On A Budget on my to read list but I’m giving it to you…tell me what you think would you?
