Hey there! I got back my edits for a Promise Fulfilled and I’m comfortable enough to put it up for pre-order. There isn’t a lot to clean up at all. As at the time of this blog post, I’m 95% done. Yay! This has been quite a busy year for me.
My editor LOVES the story. Couldn’t stop gushing about the new family. One thing I have learned from tackling this new part of Africa…the northern part, Morocco… is the prejudices people in this modern time still hold about certain people/places. Or maybe prejudice isn’t the word…stereotype. The late Chinua Achebe had this to say about stereotypes.
“The whole idea of a stereotype is to simplify. Instead of going through the problem of all this great diversity – that it’s this or maybe that – you have just one large statement; it is this.”
Just because a country is predominantly Muslim, doesn’t mean there isn’t a sizable Christian population. We no longer live in a time of absolutes, the world is getting smaller and cultures are mixing. Ok. I’m getting off my soap box.
Enjoy the teaser and head to Amazon to preorder your copy. Out Dec 6th. Preorder price is $2.99 after the 6th, it goes up to $3.99

To Live Again: An Invisible Shackles Novel
The devastation of Itohan Adolo’s tragic love story fuels her anger at the world and distance from her faith. That is until Osaro Ikimi comes along. Although he wasn’t looking for love, he wasn’t one to let an opportunity pass him by.
Just when the couple tries to give love a chance, the opportunity for revenge against her ex falls in Itohan’s lap. Unable to let the opportunity go, she sets a plan in motion. However, the satisfaction she feels is short lived when she discovers that the plan will also destroy the new love she’s just realized she can’t live without.
Love isn’t supposed to keep records of wrong but that’s easier said than done. Will they lean on their faith to heal the damage or are somethings just beyond repair?
Ndewo nu! I’m back again o.. Today, I’m talking about how I overcame loneliness and loss. If you didn’t read my post Monday, you can check it out
God didn’t create man to be alone. He looked at Adam and determined there it is not good for him to be alone. He has instilled in each of us a desire to be loved and have connections to another human being. When that need that was created by God’s design is not fulfilled, we become unhappy.
Why do people have the notion that when you’re a believer, you have to be “on” all the time. We Christians suffer from depression and loneliness too. I suffered from it. My 10 year attachment to my husband was snatched away from me and left me void. I had no family in London, no real friends so yes I loved Jesus but I was unhappy. I was hurt, pained and angry.
The difference however between a believer and a non believer is that we know that the solution to all our issues lay on the cross. (Disclaimer: If you’re suffering from clinical depression or any other mental disorders please see a medical professional) One relationship should trump all relationships and that’s the one we have with our personal Savior, Jesus Christ. Once we have accepted His abundant life in our hearts. we can take practical steps to work on us.
Here is what I did:
I accepted I had an issue. God can’t do anything with who I pretended to be. I approached the throne and told Him what He already knew. I was broken and needed help.
I accepted what I couldn’t change. I couldn’t make Zayd come back to me. So it was time to move on. I had boys to raise.
I changed what I could. I moved myself and the boys from West London to East London. A fresh start in a new environment.
I joined a new church, meditated on the Word day and night. I also took up a new hobby: Clothing designs. That worked out because Rasheed opened a boutique for me in Abuja 🙂
I made new friends. One was Tega’s mother, Victoria. You see, we worked the night shift in my new job then together. Her husband was deceased, while mine walked out but we both experienced loss. You’ll read about Tega in Kamal’s book.
Loneliness can be overcome but it starts with a renewed mind that is determined to break from its grip. Ask God for the courage to try new things and trust that His will is always perfect for you.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead Philippians 3:13
Hey y’all this is Unoma. I trust you’re enjoying this time with Mama D. She’ll be back on Friday. Don’t forget to get the series as it is currently on sale. You can order here
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.
For the second time in Olanma Obinze-Rice’s life love hasn’t been good to her. Five years ago, a repossessed car and the looming threat of eviction, left Olanma Obinze-Rice in dire need of cash. Then out of the blue, she landed an interview of a lifetime that would solve all her problems. But she had to go through former bad boy and heir of Rice Holdings, Abayomi Rice. One ultimatum, a whirlwind romance and a life scare later, Olanma and Abayomi were married.
Now all Olanma wants is to be free. Free from her rocky marriage, manipulative husband and overbearing father. If everything goes according to plan, she’ll be divorced and free from her father’s clutches by her thirtieth birthday. All she has to do is wrap up one last business deal. 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.
Despite their present state, the finality of a divorce is not an option. He wants his wife back. With his sister’s wedding coming up, he sets his plan in motion and issues one final ultimatum- pretend to be a happy couple one last time. Their farce leads to unexpected healing of their hearts, but then life throws another wrench in the plan. An ultimatum brought them together will this final one tear them apart?
