Tonight on the Write Stuff — The Make-Believe Family with Darliss Batchelor

makebelivefFaith Lewis has a life most women would envy—married to her true love, living in her dream home and surrounded by loving friends and family. When she and her husband, Jamison, learn they’re going to be the parents of triplets, Faith is ecstatic! All her dreams have come true and she couldn’t be happier.

But, just like the Garden of Eden, the fall comes fast and furious!

Her former employer, Evan, despite trying to reconcile with his wife, is still in Faith’s life and Jamison isn’t pleased. Evan’s daughters dote on Faith because she was their caretaker and the only constant in their lives, which fuels jealously in Evan’s wife and causes more friction, making Faith’s life very uncomfortable.

As Faith navigates pregnancy, her BFF’s move to Georgia, Jamison’s trust issues with Faith’s and Evan’s friendship, and discord with her in-laws, she wonders if she’s cut out for “married with children!”

The premature birth of the triplets is a harbinger of events that quickly sends Faith’s life spinning out of control. Faith, could never, ever have imagined her fairytale would turn into a nightmare from which she might never awake.

THE MAKE-BELIEVE FAMILY is the unforgettable story of a woman whose desire for a warm, loving family leads her to take a chance on love and risk her heart in the trials and tribulations of life while struggling to keep her faith through it all.

They knew nothing about each other. Karen knew only that boy with the flute was named was Omar, and his music was the most beautiful sound she had ever heard.

Write Stuff Author Spotlight — To Live Again by Unoma Nwankwor

To Live Again Blog Content

 

What happens when one is so obsessed by past pain that they become shackled by its invisible grip? That is the story of the heroine of To Live Again, Itohan Adolo.

Synopsis:

The devastation of Itohan Adolo’s tragic love story creates an 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 tried 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?

Excerpt:

“Now I see where you came up with your outlandish assumption.”

His voice caused her to stop digging in her purse for her keys and returned her gaze to him.

“May I?” He gestured toward the drawing.

She nodded, and he removed the tack that held it to the corkboard. She watched as he sauntered toward her. He stood before her. Any closer and his body would touch hers. She moved back, but he moved closer, until she was backed up against the Smart Board. Itohan decided right there and then, she was having a heart attack.

He stared down at her and she accepted his challenge holding his gaze. A vision of him taking her to the morgue because she’d died under the intensity of his gaze flashed through her mind. That could not and would not be her portion, so taking him on wasn’t in her best interest. He was testing her, and she was bound to lose. She should be running and not entering the ring with him. Warning alarms went off in her head. This was a dangerous game, so she gave in. With nowhere else to go, she stepped aside.

“Did that feel like I play for the other team?”

She was stuck. When she told her brother the story, he told her she had inadvertently questioned Osaro’s manhood. Right now, he was trying to prove a point and with the way her breath caught in her chest, he had accomplished his goal.

He bent down, putting his ear at the level of her mouth. “I didn’t hear you, Ms. Adolo.” His tone demanded an answer.

“No,” she whispered.

#NewRelease! .99 cents! Time To Say Goodbye by Parker J. Cole — #Sweet Romance

Time To Say Goodbye24a9a-amazon

Gargi Kapoor is the only one convinced her brother, Dev, is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. When he is sent to the hospital with an unexplained paralyzing disease she finds herself having to lean on the last person she’d ever want to depend on — a man who wants her brother to pay for stealing his mother’s life savings.

Leon Reckley is extremely satisfied to find the man who ripped his mother off suffering from an unknown disease that leaves him paralyzed and in need of rehabilitation therapeutic services. He’s even happier when he is given the opportunity to be the therapist that makes him fit enough to return to prison to finish his sentence. No one will work harder to make sure Dev Kapoor serves every minute of his prison sentence.

Gargi never dreamed the man who has utter contempt for her brother would be the man she slowly begins to trust. Leon never thought he’d be convinced Dev might be innocent, let alone be drawn to his enemy’s little sister. Together, will they find the truth? Or when Leon’s job is over, will it simply be time to say goodbye?
