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

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?
